* ''Wrestling/{{Sting}}'', even before becoming a Born-again Christian in 1998, rarely cursed on TV. One notable instance was during a promo with Kevin Nash where I said "I'm tired of you bitching about that stupid powerbomb!"[[note]]The powerbomb was banned in-story at the time [[/note]]

Due to [[SeparatedByACommonLanguage the nature of language]], this trope is prone to ValuesDissonance about what words are appropriate. [[DidNotDoTheBloodyResearch "Bloody", "cunt", "ass" and "twat"]], just to name a few words, have ''very'' different connotations on the two sides of the Atlantic--[[ForeignCurseWord and that's just the differences within SeparatedByACommonLanguage a single language.]] Although, like many other English words, the word "fucking" exists with only a minor variation in German ("ficken"), it's only used as a verb and almost never as a curseword. The word "Scheiße" ("shit") and its variations are almost always used in exactly the same way as the word "fuck" in English. In many European countries, swearing is rarely considered an issue when it comes to film ratings—for example, ''Film/SilverLiningsPlaybook'', which has about seven dozen F words, was rated "tous publics" (equivalent to the MPAA's "G") in France, and children as young as six could watch it in the Netherlands.

In some languages, however, expletives do not actually exist, or are so uncommonly used and/or offensive that they are not allowed in the media. Seemingly equivalent words may be used similarly, but without the impact of an actual expletive (for example, while the Japanese word ''kuso'' is translated as "shit", its profanity level is more along the lines of "crud" and is often used in children's shows by child characters without raising alarm). These languages may have levels of politeness which serve the same purpose (again, Japanese), and translations often take advantage of the dub/sub language's expletives to give the same feeling. For subtitles, this crosses over into SpiceUpTheSubtitles, unless the expletive used by the translator actually is said in the dialogue, [[GratuitousEnglish as is known to happen.]]
