  • Many Brandon Rogers sketches contain so much profanity that it comes to a point in which it starts looking like the characters themselves have some sort of weird Blue-and-Orange Morality when it comes to swearing.
  • The Angry Video Game Nerd. The guy who plays and invented him, James Rolfe, says this was because the first game he reviewed (Castlevania II: Simon's Quest) was really hard. He doesn't just swear a lot, he invents compound swears for games he really hates (which is even referenced in his extended theme song: "He's the angriest, most pissed-off gaming nerd / The games suck so bad he makes up his own words"). He also tends to use them strangely, in coinages like "this game is ass", or "it sucks monkey fuck". In one episode, he apologizes for being excessively foul after coining the portmanteau "shizz" (think about it) to describe his hatred of a game.
    • The above is parodied on Something Awful's Flash Tub section, in a series of shorts entitled Furious Famicom Faggot. The first episode in particular has an excellent example of a Cluster F-Bomb.

    • In one episode of AVGN, Rolfe finds out that the Konami Laserscope's sound recognition hardware can be activated by saying words other than "fire." You know what happens next. A literal case of the Precision F-Strike.
      Nerd: Fuck. *Blam!* Wow. I just shot down a duck by saying "fuck."
    • The one time the AVGN didn't swear at all was in a Christmas-themed crossover with Captain S, a squeaky-clean Sega-themed parody of Captain N: The Game Master. As difficult as it can be getting used to listening to the Nerd drop shitfucks and fuckshits like there's no tomorrow, it's downright painful listening to the neutered Nerd uttering sentence after sentence nary a single fuckin' fuck. (It makes the gag at the end all the more hilarious, though.)
    • Also one of the notable creations of James Rolfe is a Crystal Dragon Jesus named Super Mecha Death Christ 2000 (B.C. ver. 4.0 beta, bitch!), who mostly uses just one word... "FUCKERS!!!". The first episode he was featured, he shot the Nerd for uttering "Holy shit!" and responded with "WATCH YOUR FUCKING LANGUAGE!!!"

    • The Final Battle with AVGN and The Nostalgia Critic has a lengthy swear duel consisting mainly of various uses of "fuck" after the Nerd kicks the Critic into a spontaneously-appearing pile of cardboard boxes, ending with the Nerd saying "Jerk!"
    • In Part 2 of his Philips CD-i review, after his Laughing Mad sequence for Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon, he flips off both middle fingers and clucks like the Cluster F-Bomb Chicken.
    • And in Part 3 of the same review, he spews out LITERAL F-Bombs.
    • Played perfectly straight when he drops a TV on his foot during his Atari 5200 review.
      "FUCK! FUCK! Fuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuck FUCK!!!"
    • He digs deep into the bowels of his fucking HEART to release the grandmaster of all fucks when he finds out he was "born too fuckin' early" in his Godzilla review.
    • This epic rant from his Power Glove review is probably the biggest example of this in the whole series.
      "Now you're playing with power." (Pause) Now you're playing with fuckin' shit! You're better off fuckin' shit than fuckin' with this fucked up shit! Fuck this shit! You don't know shit about how fuckin' shitty this fuckin' shit is! It's so bad it sucks! It's so fuckin' suck it fucks! And I... can't take it anymore.

    • Mentioned by name (alongside Atomic F-Bomb and Precision F-Strike) in his Ghosts 'n Goblins review.
  • While somewhat outdone by his rival (the fuckin' Nerd), The Nostalgia Critic is no joke either.
    • Case in point.
    • His review of Neverending Story 3. When we get to the Rock Biter. Observe here.
    • What about the only word that could possibly sum up Batman & Robin—Supercrapafuckarificexpialabullshit
  • The Angry Joe Show: Angry Joe, who could seriously give the two mentioned above a serious run for their money. It's to the point where it legitimately seems be a problem for him, as every other sentence he speaks is rife with f-bombs.
    • Take this excerpt during his review of the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight, for instance.
    • And his Ghostbusters (2016) movie review is full of these.
      Joe: I fucking got it... I fucking got it. [...] It's a Class 10 FUCKING STINKER! It's a Class 10 goddamn piece of shit fucking movie that really SUCKS ASS!
  • Filthy Frank: Everything from the titular main character, his gibberish spouting cohorts (and somehow curse anyways), to the very outro of the show.
    It's Filthy Frank, Mothafucka, it's Filthy Frank BITCH
  • In the Jim And Yahtzee's Rhymedown Spectacular Episode "The Cheese Master", the wanderer has this reaction when Jim doesn't like his cheese. At first the wanderer has several other insults in the mix, but it quickly devolves into just "fuck fuck fuck".
  • Tear Of Grace is well known for his excessive use of profanity, especially when he starts getting frustrated with the games that he plays and considering that his longest series have all been Nintendo Hard games, sometimes with added Self Imposed Challenges, it should be no surprise that this is one of his defining characteristics.
  • The classic Onyxia raid wipe
    Okay, listen the fuck up! You are going to DPS very, very slowly! Now... and by "slow", I mean fucking slow! If you get aggro, it means you're going to lose fifty DKP because you didn't know what the fuck to do! And watch the fucking tail! If you get kicked into the Whelps, you lose fifty DKP again for not being where the fuck you were supposed to be!
  • Most of MonkeyandApple's humorous videos on YouTube.
  • Lampshaded in this example...
  • Time to fucking rock your shit up and down the block.
  • This video about the "worst job ever" features a guy who clearly does not enjoy his work. Apparently, in the regular course of the day, he descends from listlessness to multiple Cluster F-Bombs, even though all he has to do is say "yes". The guy on the other end is the guy from the Verizon ads, forever asking him, "Can you hear me now?"
  • This (very NSFW, but hilarious) dubbing of a modded Super Mario level may qualify, as the "soundtrack" was added after the fact. Then again, video games tend to induce heavy swearing, so it may be justified. In addition to the Cluster F-Bomb, the game gets compared unfavourably to Family Guy, Panic at the Disco, Ann Coulter, and reading YouTube comments.
  • Fuck Planet Earth is a compilation of clips from the BBC series Planet Earth, overdubbed to give the animals voices. An innocuous enough concept. Nature being what it is, however, it's hardly surprising that this trope is in full force.
  • Pope Song
  •'s Game Helpin' Squad, right at the end.
  • Saying the F word was already a Verbal Tic for Guile in Street Fighter: The Later Years. When he loses to Dhalsim in a sparing match to his Yoga Noogie, he loses it:
    Guile: Yoga fuckin' noogie what are ya fuckin' six? What're ya gonna do next, yoga fuckin' wet willie? Yoga fuckin' purple nurple?''
  • The "Fucking Short Version" compilation of films and shows like The Big Lebowski (here), Scarface (1983) (here), Pulp Fiction (here), From Dusk Till Dawn (here) and Panty & Stocking (here). Many FSVs will have swear counters, often being in the triple digits by the end of the video.
  • In a similar vein are the "swearing compilations" for albums like N.W.A's Straight Outta Compton, Dr. Dre's 2001 and The Lonely Island's Incredibad
  • This stirring rendition of the Jurassic Park theme With Lyrics. (YouTube link here in case the YTMND doesn't work.)
  • Immersion, which tests how video game practices relate to the real world, tested whether a trained combat veteran could handle the distraction of three typical internet nerds yelling abuse while he shot targets on a range.
  • Mario Teh Plumber, Here's an example. (WARNING: Turn down your speakers!): Every other sentence contains swearing.
  • The Elder Swear. It's bleeped out but still hilarious.
  • In Tribe Twelve, Noah seems to say nothing but curse words when he's scared. It's enough to warrant its own Drinking Game
  • Whether you love him or hate him, much of The Amazing Atheist's popularity and humor comes from his liberal application of this trope, either as his YouTube persona or as himself. In fact, it's very rare for a fuck—or shit-free video to come from him. An old video of his takes this to its logical conclusion, in response to the more "prudish" arguments against him (with Country Matters as the cherry on top):
    Hypothetical arguer: [in a mocking smug voice] I'm tired of people on YouTube using profanity.
    TAA: Yeah, uh... fuck-fuck, shit-ass-cunt-motherfuck, dick-sucking motherfuckers, fuckity-fuck-shit-fuck!
  • Real-Time Fandub tend to lapse into these every now and then, but the most spectacular and famous example is Dr. Eggman's "moon rant" from the Sonic Adventure 2 dub:
    Dr. Eggman: "I've come to make an announcement: Shadow the Hedgehog's a bitch-ass motherfucker, he pissed on my fucking wife. That's right, he took his hedgehog-fuckin' quilly dick out and he pissed on my fucking wife, and he said his dick was "this big," and I said "that's disgusting," so I'm making a callout post on my Shadow the Hedgehog, you've got a small dick, it's the size of this walnut except WAY smaller. And guess what? Here's what my dong looks like! BOOM! That's right baby, all points, no quills, no pillows— look at that, it looks like two balls and a bong! He fucked my wife, so guess what, I'm gonna fuck the EARTH. That's right, this is what you get: MY SUPER LASER PISS!! Except I'm not gonna piss on the Earth, I'm gonna go higher; I'm pissing ON THE MOON! How do you like that, Obama? I PISSED ON THE MOON, YOU IDIOT! You have 23 hours before the piss drrrrroplllllllets hit the fucking Earth, now get outta my fucking sight, before I piss on you too!"
  • This video from DasBoSchitt. Nearly all of Renamon's vocabulary consists of various swears strung together, the actual phrase she's trying to say in subtitles for the viewer's benefit. Except for the time when she actually is swearing ("Limp-dick fag fucker!", indeed).
  • Every single episode of Verbal Fucking Vogueing. Louis Virtel delves into a fucking disturbing amount of Country Matters.
  • Not a bad one is in Episode 3(?) of My Drunk Kitchen, in her ingredients list: "Champagne, eggs, some fuckin' flour, some fuckin' butter, and some fuckin' motherfuckin' eggs."
  • YouTube video game reviewer AlphaOmegaSin drops massive Cluster F-Bombs whenever he goes into rants about something.
  • Markiplier tries to keep it PG on his videos, but very understandably lapses into these when frustration or sheer terror get to him. For instance, his response to suddenly discovering Golden Freddy in Five Nights at Freddy's:
    "AGH FUCK YOU! OH GOD! What the fuck? What the fuck, okay?! NOT okay!"
  • CaptainSparklez normally keeps the profanity down or mild, but tends to drop the "minimal swearing" rule if he's really scared, such as if he's playing Slender (not to say that he doesn't drop the F-bomb or other strong swearwords in other cases).
  • Hat Films has Ross, who is quite fond of shouting the word "SHIT", often in the context of making other members of the Yogscast eat it.
  • Matt of Bad Creepypasta dropped a barrage of "Bullshit!" and "Fuck you!" after the reading of Jeff The Killer vs. Slenderman.
  • Francis from boogie2988 is fond of using these when playing frustrating video games, such as QWOP.
  • Star Wars Uncut: In a clip In the Style of The Big Lebowski'' Han lets off a few f-bombs while discussing whether or not to participate in the attempt to turn off the tractor beam. "Anything's fuckin' better than just sitting around here waiting for them to come in and fucking pick us off."
  • Legendy Polskie had some swearing already, but when Twardowski aquires a sin-powered ship... you can guess it yourself.
  • Jonathan Pie is a spoof news reporter who speaks his mind between takes. His mind contains a lot of swearwords.
  • El Bananero. His F-Bombs mixed with Sex Comedy and Toilet Humor became him in a sensation in Latin America until today, at the point of being himself and his parodies a whole Memetic Mutation.
  • Aoife of Eurogamer has a reputation for this. For example, when cornered by three enemies in Bloodborne:
    Aoife: Assholes! Assholes! Fuck off! Fuck off! Fuck off! [beat] I panicked.
  • The Cry of Mann: Combined with Rapid-Fire "Shut Up!"; when his callers keep speaking during his attempt to record something for Tank Mann, Jack becomes very angry, and repeatedly tells them to "Shut the fuck up! Shut the fuck up!"
  • Most of Achievement Hunter are pretty foul mouthed, but Michael Jones has them beat in both volume and number of swears.
  • A YouTube sports commentator by the name of Urinatingtree releases analysis and highlight videos about American sports (baseball, hockey, and especially football)with detailed and hilariously profanity riddled commentary. Special emphasis on his favorite team, the Pittsburg Steelers, which tend to get extra spicy cluster f-bombs if that week's game is subpar.
  • Discussed in the Regular Car Reviews episode on the 1991 BMW E30 318i, in which Mr. Regular notes that while the E30 is difficult to perform maintenance on, Mazda Miatas, which he compares the E30 against a few times, "can be fixed with swear words."
