Atomic F-Bomb

Spoony: Oh, we're winding up to a big ol' "Nooooo!"
Quinlan: FUUUCK!
Spoony: …or that works too, I guess.

The Precision F-Strike relies on timing. The Cluster F-Bomb relies on frequency and multitude.

The Atomic F-Bomb relies on VOLUME.

Sometimes this trope is self-censoring and cuts to some other scene (like birds flying away) to imply the volume.

A Sub-Trope of Big Word Shout and Chewing the Scenery

Compare Big "NO!", Big "WHAT?!".

No relation to Dirty Bomb.


Fucking Examples!

    Fucking Anime & Manga! 
  • DEVILMAN crybaby: In response to Satan's offer to abandon humankind and join the demons, Akira angrily yells "You're full of SHIT!" so loudly that it even breaks apart the cliff they were standing on.
  • End of Evangelion Misato delivers one when trying to get through to Shinji with the force of an N2 mine.
  • Goldfish Warning!: The only swear in the series & it's in English. The students pop in a tape sent from an American school, which at some point makes a dramatic zoom-in with flashing lights to an Ox that slowly yells "Son of a bitch!" for no reason at all.
  • In the ninth episode of Heavy Object's anime adaptation, the protagonists find out about a terrorist plot to destroy a vacation resort on the Moon in order to off a high-value target. Since their own government has been trying to assassinate the same target for a while now, they are ordered to just ignore it and let it happen, which they do... until one of them remembers his betrothed saying something about staying at an out-of-the-way vacation resort. He hurriedly calls her and asks her where she is, only for her to confirm that she's indeed at the very same resort. Cue "FUUUUUUCK!!!"
    • Even better, she then stutters out through her Luminescent Blush that while it's a rather blunt proposal, she's not entirely against the idea...
  • New Dominion Tank Police Episode 2: Britain loses track of Leona, mutters to himself that he stinks at stakeouts, then pulls out his Castigator and yells, "GOOODAMNIIIIIIIIIIIIT!"/"CHIKUSHOOOOOOOOOOO!" while shooting the gun in the air.
  • The first chapter of One-Punch Man ends with this (and, sure enough, the printed version follows suit), after another battle Saitama wins in his usual fashion:
    SON OF A BIIIIIIIIIIIIIITCH!!!
  • Evangelion 2.0 has two instances, courtesy of Mari: one during the battle at the beginning of the film ("JUST FUCKING DIE!!!"), and another during the battle with Zeruel ("POINT BLANK, SHITHEAD!").

    Fucking Comic Books! 
  • All-Star Batman & Robin, the Boy Wonder has this classic: "I'm the GODDAMN Batman."
  • Brian Azzarello's run on Hellblazer produced an issue that had the "F-word" appearing 51½ times. The one-half was someone screaming, across the top of a panel, "FUUUUUUUUU".
  • One of the first pages of The Invisibles has a character screaming "FUCK!" with very large font and multiple "U"s.
  • The Preacher character Johnny Lee Wombat, being somewhat frustrated in his desire to fly the space shuttle, takes the next best option. He buys a few dozen square miles of desert real estate, and uses high explosives to blast out a message that they'll be able to read from orbit, without a telescope. Four letters, followed by "YOU".
  • In Young Avengers, Marvel Boy blows up 8 square blocks of Conveniently Empty Buildings to spell out a message to earth that can be seen from the Helicarrier. Since it's not a MAX book, the satellite is zoomed in on the second half of the destruction, so only the word "You" and the bottom of a "K" can be seen.
    Dum Dum Dugan: You?
    S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent: There were four other letters...
    Dugan: I bet there were.

    Fan Fucking Works! 
  • The Battle Cry of the fan-made Warhammer 40,000 army, the Angry Marines, is to simply shout FUCK YOU! at the top of their lungs. They are sometimes described as holding the U for the entire duration of the battle (which is never very long, thanks to their incredible firepower and incredible lack of tactics).
  • Codex Equus: After hearing that Professor Bubbling Beaker used the Trimortidae as one of his inspirations for his experiments, Bossa Nova Heartstrings was so furious that he dropped this in response.
    Bossa Nova Heartstrings: That SONUVA-BITCH!!!
  • Dragon Ball Z Abridged:
    • Vegeta goes from Rapid-Fire "No!" to Atomic F-Bomb when Goku goes Kaioken x4 and launches him into the sky with his Kamehameha. The scene changes, and when it later cuts back to Vegeta, he finally escapes the beam... and finishes saying "-UUUUCK!"
    • And again when he's hit with the Spirit Bomb. He also stops swearing when he hits the ground.
    • And again in Episode 18 when he realizes Gohan stole one of his Dragonballs right after Vegeta got hold of the seventh one. It quickly turns into The Scream which is so loud it can be heard in space, the afterlife, and on another planet twenty years in the future.
    • And again in episode 21, when Goku mentions he'd been training at 100 times normal gravity.
    • This trope went meta after Team Four Star's account was suspended. It's amazing that Lanipator's voice still works. Put it this way: They used his reaction video to make this.
    • And then in Episode 24, Vegeta realizes that Gohan and Krillin took the Dragon Balls and were in the process of summoning Porunga while he was off napping. (Beat) "OH YOU MOTHERFUUUUUUCKEEEEEEERRRRRS!" It is heard by Krillin and Gohan outside the ship and several miles away, and by the newly resurrected Piccolo, who is on the other side of the planet.
    • And again in Episode 39, when Eighteen breaks Vegeta's arm.
    • From Episode 48, Tien's finally snaps under Cell's taunting.
      Tien: You know what? Fuck power levels. FUCK Super Saiyans. AND FUCK YOU!
    • Part 2 of Episode 60: After Cell vomits up Android 18, he realizes he's about to lose his perfect form and immediately drops a huge one.
  • Fallout: Equestria - Project Horizons: The villain Deus drops Atomic C Bombs with all the regularity of a Catchphrase.
  • Upon learning in How I Learned to Love the Wild Horse that Ranma was sent to Beverly Hills as a form of Witness Protection and he's actually being recruited into WOOHP, Sam, who's been the most adamant that he's a terrorist leader and ruined Clover's relationship with him, screams Fuck at the top of her lungs while using a spy gadget to silence it.
  • Light and Dark The Adventures of Dark Yagami gives us this from its "hero":
    "F-CK!" he screamed so loud that a church blew up
  • A Man of Iron has Jane's reaction in the second book to finding out that her father Davos is Loki.
    Jane: WHAT THE SERIOUS FUCKING FUCK?
  • MSLN Test Dummies: "This, was the biggest, most absurd CLUSTERFUCK I've seen in twenty years." Nanoha suppressed a wince as he elevated his voice to emphasize... That word.
  • My Immortal:
    • After Dumbledore catches Draco and Ebony having sex in the Forbidden Forest, he drops his famous line, "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING YOU MOTHERFUKERS!"
    • Tara also manages to drop an Atomic F Bomb in an Author's Note.
      if ur not [a prep] den u rok. if u r den FOOOOOK UFFFFFFFFFF!
  • After fighting back a major attack on Milwaukee, Sean of the Power Rangers GPX lets every single swear word loose upon the sight of a Giant Mecha blasting much of the city to smithereens.
    "HOLY FUCKING SPIRIT JESUS H GODDAMN TAP-DANCING FUCKING CHRIST!"
  • Pretty Cure Heavy Metal: We don't see Taiko Sorano the one time she swears because we're focusing on Sakura Cobain, who's inside the building and hears her drop the F bomb from outside the school. She runs toward the source of the atomic F bomb immediately.
  • Yet again, with a little extra help, a Naruto fanfic of EPIC proportions:
    • Naruto drops one that continues until he passes out from lack of air. Another conversation takes place over it, since he has a privacy/silence seal on at the time. Otherwise it might've attracted unwanted attention.
      For the reader's convenience, the next part of the conversation is done while Naruto is silently screaming the longest and largest swear that will ever come out of his mouth. It begins with a VERY big F.
    • He drops a second one a few chapters later, which quickly devolved into a string of Angrish that forced Itachi to get away from Naruto and Sasuke (lest he be discovered talking with them) and caused the Sanbi to stare at Naruto in confusion.
  • Wyvern: In Chapter 13, an angry Taylor loudly tells Armsmaster to fuck off. The fact that her current form makes the sound loud enough to bust unprotected eardrums at close range and knock its target clean on his ass gives the outburst quite a bit of punching power.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series had a very memorable one from Kaiba:
    Ishizu: Exchange of Spirit!
    Kaiba: Exchange of what now?
    Ishizu: Now we must swap the cards in our deck with the cards in our graveyard, leaving me with all the cards I need, and you Kaiba, with only six.
    Kaiba: [beat] FFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU—
    [cuts to Mokuba watching the video from episode 28]
    Video: "You my Wang G?" "Yes, I am Colonel Wang." "Can I touch you?"
    Mokuba: Hahaha. It's funny because wang means penis.
    [checks the duel data screen. Kaiba's F-Bomb is heard through the audio feed]
    Kaiba: —UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU—
    Mokuba: [talks while Kaiba's F-Bomb continues] Uh oh, Seto's in trouble; I must save him! To the Mokubamobile!
    ['60s Batman-esque scene transition]
    Yami: [I wonder how that milkshake's doing...]
    Mokuba: Mokubamobile away!
    Yami: There isn't a Mokubamobile!
    Mokuba: [Kaiba's F-bomb is audible again] Big brother, are you okay?!
    Kaiba: —UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!
  • Hellsing Abridged has Zorin Blitz roaring out the C-bomb as Seras is tearing apart her zeppelin with twin Harkonnen II cannons.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! GX: The Abridged Series: Jaden does a literal version of this when Chumley speaks for the first time.
  • Im A Marvel And Im AD C: Green Goblin delivers a pretty epic one during Zero Hour #5 when Future Lex reveals that the Big Bad is Darkseid.
  • Along Came a Spider implies one mother of one when ComStar’s Precentor Martial is confronted by the Clans on the Federated Commonwealth’s ability to reproduce their technology. Focht’s reply on Primus Waterly’s reaction? “When I inform Primus Waterly that Hanse Davion has armed his forces with weapons equal to yours, it is entirely possible you will hear her outrage from here without an HPG.”

    Fucking Films! — Animation 
  • In The Last Unicorn, when Molly Grue meets the unicorn, she cusses the unicorn out on daring to appear to her now when her maidenhood is long gone:
    Molly: Where have you been? Where have you been? DAMN YOOOU! Where have you been!?

    Fucking Films! — Live-Action 
  • All Is Lost: Robert Redford lets out a "FUUUCK!", when he discovers his drinking water is contaminated by salt water.
  • Fury: A German Tiger I heavy tank has just obliterated the other three M4 Shermans of Wardaddy's platoon. Fury has barely managed to charge past the Tiger and put two rounds up its ass, so the German crew abandon it, except for their commander, who turns to fire his pistol at Wardaddy, who's standing up in his hatch. Wardaddy's bow machine gunner, Private Norman Ellison (for whom the entire movie is one long Break the Cutie ordeal) mutters, "Fuckin' Nazi," and cuts the commander down with his .30-cal. Then he shouts, "FUCK YOU!!!"
  • Little Miss Sunshine: Dwayne hates his family so much that he's refused to speak for almost a year. He plans to enroll in the Air Force Academy as soon as he finishes school. When he discovers that he's color-blind and thus unable to become a pilot, this is the first word he says. And boy, does he make the most of it. Amazingly, this scene manages to combine a Precision F-Strike (since it's the first word he says), an Atomic F-Bomb (since he screams it), and a Cluster F-Bomb (immediately after the first shout).
  • Black Hawk Down: A Ranger nearly gets wasted by enemy fire, as he's running for cover he screams, "FUUUUCK THIIIIIS!!!"
  • While The Boondock Saints is practically 2 hours of full of F-Bombs, one in particular is this trope. After FBI agent Smecker and a couple of detectives are calmly discussing some confusing details of a murder case, Smecker asks a series of questions to summarize all they don't know about the case, then just sits there looking baffled for a bit. Suddenly he shouts "FUCK!" so loud his partners nearly jump out of their seats from being startled.
  • The movie Running Scared (2006) has a glorious one from Paul Walker. After entering an apartment full of Latino gangsters who he believes have a dirty gun "belonging" to him, and finding out that they, in fact, did not take the gun, he runs out and roars "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!" at the top of his lungs. This comes as no surprise since half of the dialogue consisted of "fuck" beforehand.
  • Alien³. Just as he's explaining that there is no such thing as a man-eating alien prowling the air ducts, said alien drops from the ceiling and executes a Vertical Kidnapping on the warden of the prison planet. Panic ensues. When it's over, the warden is gone and it's clear that there really IS an unstoppable man-eating monster on the loose. One of the inmates does the only thing left to do... drop the bomb.
  • From Wet Hot American Summer: "The phone! The phone! Where's the FUCKING PHONE?!?!"
  • Kevin Bacon delivers one that goes three full beats in Tremors, after the first Graboid smashes into the concrete wall.
    Val: "Cold my ass...he's dead. We killed it... WE KILLED IT! FUUUUU-UUUU-UUUUUCK! YOUUUU!"
  • Donnie Darko has one: Drew Barrymore, after her character becomes a Fired Teacher, does this in an (almost) empty space.
  • Nicolas Cage delivers an epic "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!" in Deadfall.
  • Imagine Me & You: YOU'RE A WANKER, NUMBER NIIIIIIIIINEEEE!! Wanker being a pretty strong cussword in the UK, and it comes back in the end as an Anguished Declaration of Love.
  • Biff Tannen and his goons in Back to the Future, when they realise they're about to crash into the manure truck: "SHIIIIIIIITTTTTT!"
  • In the movie Screwed, the greedy character Miss Crock was forced to make a decision to either pay the $1 million ransom for her servant, or lose her largest client. Her response? "FUUUUUUUUUUCK!"
  • Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid: When Butch and Sundance jump off the cliff into the river, Sundance lets off an epic "AHHHHH SHIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTT!"
  • A Christmas Story
    Future!Ralph: Only I didn't say "Fudge." I said THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words, the "F-dash-dash-dash" word!
  • The opening of Four Weddings and a Funeral is more or less exclusively this, for about the first couple of minutes.
  • During the "Crimson Permanent Assurance" short at the beginning of Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, the last survivor of the Really Big Corporation of America yells "SHIT!" before jumping to his death.
  • A Most Wanted Man: An absolutely blistering one from Philip Seymour Hoffman's character after he finds out he's been betrayed by his own government.
  • Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny: JB and Kage see that Satan just recovered the pick.
    Satan: I am complete!
    JB/Kage: FFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCKK!!!
  • This scene from the Filipino movie Alyas Pogi: Birador ng Nueva Ecija, where Edu Manzano's character's atomic cussing (plus Skyward Scream) became Memetic Mutation among Filipinos (it reached more than 170,000 views ever since it was uploaded on February 13, 2013).
    Putang ina mo. PUTANG INA MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! (You son of a bitch. YOU SON OF A BIIIIIIIIIIIIIITCHHHH!!!)
  • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: When Blondie dumps Tuco in the desert, Tuco basically belts out the Spanish version of the previous.
    Tuco: ¡HIJO DE UNA GRAN PUTAAAAAAAAA! (YOU SON OF A BIG WHOOOOOORE!)
    • Then at the end, he delivers it in English.
    Tuco: YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE?! JUST A DIRTY SON OF A BIIIIIIIIITCH! (The last word is audibly a Curse Cut Short but many subtitles leave it in).
  • National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation: Chevy Chase's epic rant. "Where's the Tylenol?"
  • Blade: Trinity: Hannibal King's reaction to the sight of a "Goddamn vampire Pomeranian" are two loud "What the FUCK?!".
  • In Micro Men, Clive Sinclair delivers one when he hears that his bitter rival Acorn Computers has been awarded the contract for the BBC Computer Literacy Project.
  • Les Grossman from Tropic Thunder drops two while on the phone. Hell, right after the first one, the person on the other line was left speechless:
    Les: Okay. Flaming Dragon. Fuckface. First, take a big step back, and literally FUCK YOUR OWN FACE! Now I don't know what kind of pan-Pacific bullshit power play you're trying to pull here, but Asia, jack, is my territory. So whatever you're thinking, you'd better think again, otherwise, I'm gonna have to head down there and I will rain down an ungodly fucking firestorm upon you! You're gonna have to call the fucking United Nations to get a fucking binding resolution to keep me from fucking destroying you! I am talking scorched earth, motherfucker! I will massacre you! I WILL FUCK YOU UP!
  • An atomic C-bomb variant occurs in T2 Trainspotting when Begbie realizes Renton is in the adjacent bathroom stall and looks over the separation wall just as Renton, who realized the same thing, escapes:
    Begbie: CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNT!!!!!!!
  • Charlie (Tom Cruise) drops one in Rain Man. Unusually, it's only a mild profanity, but the sheer way that Charlie screams "SON OF A BIIITCH!!!" so loud that it echoes off the nearby buttes, definitely counts it in this category. It was censored for TV airings, however.
  • Robocop ends with one from Pat Novak during his show.
    Pat Novak: THE FACT THAT THIS MOTHERFUCKER IS NOT SERVING TIME IN SOME FEDERAL PENITENTIARY IS A HUGE HOT HEAPING PILE OF HORSE SHIT! Now I know some of you may think that this kind of thinking is dangerous and these machines violate your civil liberties. Some of you even believe that the use of these drones overseas makes us the same kind of bullying imperialists that our forefathers were trying to escape. To you, I say... stop whining! America is now and always will be the greatest country on the face of the Earth! I'm Pat Novak. Good night.
  • In Screwed, once it becomes clear that Ms. Crock will lose her latest business merger if she doesn't pay the ransom for her chauffeur's (fake) kidnapping to save her reputation, we get a Distant Reaction Shot outside her factory with a single loud FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!

    Fucking Literature! 
  • In Buddenbrooks, when Tony catches her second husband in the act with their cook, a row ensues, which culminates in Permaneder insulting her, "Go to hell, you dirty swinish slut!" Divorce ensues.
  • In Jimmy Buffett's autobiography/travelogue A Pirate Looks At Fifty, Buffett gives an extended one after he's unable to use a cellphone to contact a government official in Columbia.
    • Incidentally, Buffett was later kicked out of an NBA game for swearing too much.
  • Subverted in Neil Gaiman's novel "Stardust"; when the star crashes to Earth, she squeaks out a tiny "fuck." Extra points for it being the only curse word in the entire book.

    Live-Fucking-Action TV! 
  • Game of Thrones: The Stunned Silence at the start of Cersei's walk in "Mother's Mercy" is broken when a bystander yells "Cunt!" at the top of his lungs and everyone realizes they too can get away with insulting the queen to her face.
    • In the episode "Hardhome", Dolorous Edd delivers a loud "OH FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!" as he flees in terror from White Walkers along with Jon.
  • In the episode "Stop! Pajama Time" of Workaholics, when Adam finds out he's going to be fired, he lets out a bleeped f-word that stretches into the end of that scene and the commercial break. When the show comes back from break, that's when he finishes yelling.
  • That '70s Show
    • In the episode where the Foremans adopt Hyde, Red lets off a series of beeped out Cluster F Bombs, then finally one big bomb.
    • A few seasons later, Kitty of all people does one toward the end of the Eric/Donna wedding arc, smoothly combining the Atomic, Precision, and Cluster F-Bombs all at once.
  • Similarly, Jon Stewart had a segment devoted to telling Fox News to 'go fuck yourself' due to its lack of journalistic integrity. He carefully dissected their argument, broke out some polite F-bombs, then brought out a gospel choir to join him in the encouragement that Fox News fuck itself, ending in a finale chorus of 'Gooooooooooo. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. Yourseeeeeeeeeeeelf!' [1] The bleep on the final 'fuck' lasted for several seconds.
    • Later that week, after a radical Islamic group based out of New York called for the death of the South Park creators for attempting to portray the prophet Muhammad, Jon Stewart pointed out the hypocrisy of calling for the silencing two individuals using their freedom of speech, by hiding behind freedom of speech laws to avoid an investigation into the threat. He then said that the Fox News bit was low, he didn't truly mean it. He did however fully back every word when he used the same bit but directed it at the new group.
  • While Jon's successor Trevor Noah has yet to get as loud as Jon when it comes to his swearing, he's capable of it, judging by his screaming ARE YOU FUCKING SHITTING ME?? when he learned that the FBI managed to hack into an iPhone without Apple's help, rendering the two entities' legal battle pointless.
  • Don't you hate the smug beautiful people in aspirational TV shows? Not as much as Charlie Brooker, you don't.
  • Chris Hardwick does this on an episode of Web Soup. When announcing the next segment of "WTF?" he yells out what the FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU...! It then cuts to the segment intro, and after, he finishes with the CK! Then you hear the laughter. Oh, the laughter...
  • Conan now has the "F-bomb hall of fame", featuring busts for Oscar-winning actors (which they bear little resemblance to) who drop an F-bomb while on the show. Now, they're giving out literal F-bomb trophies to these people as well.
  • Malcolm Tucker from The Thick of It. It's more like a Cluster Atomic F Bomb when he swears. Two shining examples would be screaming "YOU FUCKING PRICK!" to Minister Hugh Abbott which can be heard through a glass door, and the quality "FUCKING RETARDED!" rant to Minister Nicola Murray over an unwise press leak.
  • In Hell's Kitchen September 5th's episode. It happens with Will and his anger just explodes on Elise's face like a volcano when the Black team discusses who should cook what.
  • Monty Python's Flying Circus: "Intercourse the penguin!"
  • In Toast of London, Clem Fandango's utter incompetence causes the protagonist to let out an F-bomb that- well, just listen to it and you'll get the idea.
  • In his last-ever interview before retirement from the BBC's prestigious "Newsnight" show, veteran interviewer Jeremy Paxman asked former Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi if it was true that he had once called Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel, "An Unfuckable Lard-arse".
  • During the end of the The Sifl and Olly Show "Precious Roy" segment, "Miracle Dirt":
    Olly: W...What about Miracle Dirt, Precious Roy?
    Precious Roy: F(bleep)! YOU! *Beat, Olly's puppeteer can be heard trying to hold back surprised laughter* SUCKERRRRRS!

    Fucking Music! 
  • The 1987-1993 intro for X Japan's live shows contains an epic example, barked in a recording of Toshi's best Metal Scream: "ALL RIGHT, YOU MOTHERFUCKERRRRRRSSSSSS!" This intro was sadly dumped as the band went more mainstream and Lighter and Softer to the far more annoying "X Japan Japan Japan Japan ad nauseum" intro, but it was actually brought back (along with the band's only post-reunion performance of Blue Blood) after the new intro, for the 2008-09 Countdown at Tokyo Dome gig. Unfortunately, it never appeared again.
  • Snake River Conspiracy's track Vulcan opens with a truly epic one.
  • "Rockin' the Suburbs" by Ben Folds.
    It gets me real pissed off, it makes me wanna say
    It gets me real pissed off, it makes me wanna say
    It gets me real pissed off, it makes me wanna say
    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!
    • Ben Folds does this in at least a couple of songs per album, not just "Rockin the Suburbs". Good examples are "Army" ("Awwwwww shit!!!") and "Song for the Dumped" ("Well, FUCK YOU TOO!!")
    • Also at the very end of the album Whatever And Ever Amen: "I've got your Hidden Track right here - Ben Folds is a FUCKING ASSHOLE!"
  • There's a particularly beautiful one in Devo's version of "Worried Man Blues" which Mark sings an enthusiastic "everything is FUCKED UP" near the beginning of the song.
  • Tenacious D has two in the song "Beelzeboss"; at the beginning Jack and Kyle wail an F bomb as Satan is summoned (which doesn't have the "atomic" charge, it must be said - rather, they sing it like a two-piece choir). When they challenge Lucifer to a rock off, his initial response is "FUCK! FUCK!!! Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!" because the demon code doesn't let him decline.
    • Quite notable in that Dave Grohl has No Indoor Voice when voicing Satan here.
  • Dos Gringos gets a good one in "2's Blind":
    We got spiked, and Lead went to the notch / When he did I had my eyes down in my crotch ('CAUSE I HAD AN ITCH!) / When I looked up only jack shit did I find / GOD DAMMIT! "2's Blind!"
  • Strapping Young Lad starts off the Cluster F-Bomb song "Fucker" with a hearty FUCK YOU!!!!!!!
    • How about the climax of "All Hail The New Flesh"? Devin makes the word "motherfucker" last about sixteen seconds.
  • Slipknot, particularly with the second album. Special mention, however, goes to the song "Eyeless" in which Corey Taylor lets out a huge "mother... FUCKEEEERRRR" towards the end of the song.
  • The somewhat obscure UK Noise Rock band Ramleh use this trope fairly often in their (often minimal or incomprehensible) lyrics, most notably either in "Eight Ball Corner Pocket" (Get out of my fucking way!!!) or, surprisingly, "Say Fuck". Considering their musical inclinations, however, the effect is less "insufferably hammy" than "strangely effective."
  • Modest Mouse's "Tundra/Desert." If any one song showcases Isaac Brock's vocal ability, it's this one.
    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW SHIT
  • Believe it or not, Jennifer Lopez in the song "Play".
    All right Mr. DJ. I've asked you three times. Play my MO-THER-FU-CKIN SONG!
  • FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK
  • "Americana" by The Offspring:
    I'm a product
    Of my environment
    So don't blame me, I just
    Work here but I wanna FUCK YOUUU!!!
    • Also "Bad Habit," especially during concerts (with the last line getting increasingly loud)
    Drivers are rude, such attitude
    But when I show my piece, complaints cease
    Something's odd, I feel like I'm God
    You stupid dumbshit goddamn MOTHERFUCKER!
  • From Guns N' Roses' "Right Next Door to Hell" on Use Your Illusion:
    But I'm right next door to hell
    Thinkin' time'll stand still for meeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEFUCK YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU, BITCH!
    ''I see you standing there
    You think you're so cool
    Why don't you just...
    FUCK OFF?!
  • The Massive "MOTHERFUCKER!!!" screamed out by Zack De La Rocha At the end of his Cluster F-Bomb that concludes "Killing in the Name."
  • This lovely little hidden track from Muse, which entirely consists of high-pitched shrieks of "YOU FUCKING MOTHERFUCKER!" interspersed with unintelligible garble.
  • Music/Princewhateverer's "Breaking Bonds" has (what sounds like) one at the very end.
    "One more thing:
    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!"
  • Played for laughs when Michael Bolton, of all people, bellows a big one at the end of "Jack Sparrow".
    This whole town's a pussy just waitin' to get FUUUUUUUUCKED!
  • Overkill's aptly named Fuck You
    ''We don't care what you say, FUCK YOU!
  • In Metallica's documentary Some Kind of Monster, Lars Ulrich is so pissed off at what he perceives as James Hetfield's controlling nature. At a band meeting, Lars launches into a profanity laden rant about said issues, and caps it off by getting in James' face and growling the word "FUCK!!!"
    • Another scene in the documentary has producer Bob Rock asking Lars to scream "FUCK" as loud as he can, during a recording session.
  • Local H's 1996 hit "High-Fiving MF". As one may surmise, the song is one whole Cluster F-Bomb, but in the second chorus, singer Scott Lucas gives a good hint of what's to come in the screaming finale.
    You crass fat-ass
    You stupid steroid FUCK!
  • BIGMAMA's entirely English-language and appropriately-titled song "Thank You is Fxxk You" ends with one, highlighted by the band letting their last note ring out right beforehand:
    It may be bad and good
    What a convenient magic word...
    FUCK! YOOOOOOOOOOOU!!
    • "Tereize no Tame Iki" ends with a particularly emphatic "GO FUCK YOURSELF!" too.
  • Don Covay's R&B classic "Mercy Mercy" doesn't have any profanity in the lyrics, just as you'd expect from a song recorded in 1964. Likewise, The Rolling Stones didn't add any cusswords to their cover of the song — they saved the cusswords for their Cluster F-Bomb of an outtake from the same era, "Andrew's Blues". But obscure Texas garage rockers The Jades (a.k.a. Jade of Stone) were so overflowing with teenage angst that they added one of the first recorded, released instances of the F-word in their cover version. And saved it for the very last line.
  • This is ostensibly the point of Red Vox's "Fuck"- the protagonist experiences several misfortunes, one after the other, within the span of a single night that lead him to shouting out "FUCK!"
  • Beast in Black's "Crazy, Mad, Insane":
    "Forced in to a puzzle
    Where I cannot fit
    I won't be like you
    'Cause you make me sick
    Run out the freak who hates the trash
    That you all say is true
    FUCK YOU!"
  • "I Think That I Would Die" from Hole's Live Through This is a a pretty slow and melancholy song, however it just makes the vitriol when she screams all the more powerful.
    It's...
    Not...
    Yours...
    FUCK YOUUUUUUU!!!
  • The Lonely Island is already unafraid about swearing and dabbling in Vulgar Humor in their songs and associated music videos, but "I'm on a Boat" in particular opens up with a very enthusiastic "AWWWWWWWWWWW SHIT!!"
  • The Hamilton Mixtape features one delivered directly to the president at the end of "An Open Letter" from an indignant Hamilton: "Sit down John, you fat motherfucker!"

    Fucking Myths & Religion! 

    Fucking Radio! 
  • Veteran presenter Ken Bruce tells of his early days as a continuity announcer on Radio Scotland. Sundays involved a skeleton staff. One day the live feed failed from the church that was hosting a live religious service. The Minister was cut off in mid-sermon, and listeners across Scotland were treated to the sound of a panicked and over-worked sound engineer in the studio shouting "Jesus Christ, the fucking thing is completely fucking buggered!" as he wrestled with the technology, unaware the studio mike was live. In the middle of the storm of protest that followed, the priest, who might justly have been entitled to show annoyance, displayed true Christian charity by remarking "When people are doing a difficult job in times of stress, of course you are going to hear technical jargon."

    Fucking Sports! 
  • During an American Football game between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens, the hometown crowd wasn't happy when their coach, John Harbaugh, was flagged for "unsportsmanlike conduct" for trying to get a referee's attention. The sound system piped in a drum beat intending for the crowd to chant "DE-FENSE!", but the crowd chanted "BULLSHIT!" instead.
  • During Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS, when Alex Rodriguez was called out for swatting the ball from Bronson Arroyo's hand, the crowd began chanting "BULLLLLSHIT! BULLLLLSHIT! BULLLLLSHIT!"
  • In the Winter Olympics of 2002, American TV production crews providing the live coverage were disconcerted by the attitude of the Britishnote  curling team, tipped to go all the way and take gold. So as to enhance the experience for viewers, the Americans were not just filming the event; they were pointing microphones at the players to pick up their interactions during the game. this worked just fine until the hard-swearing Scottish team came along, providing an additional viewer experience for the USA. Asked if they wouldn't mind toning down the language a little bit, you do realise this is not what the good people of Power Cable, Nebraska, want coming through on their TV sets, the Yanks were told this is how we operate, we're not toning it down just for you, and if Power Cable, Nebraska and Klansman, Alabama are going to be offended, then why don't you just turn the fucking microphones off, Jimmy?

    Fucking Theatre! 

    Fucking Video Games! 
  • In BlazBlue, after Ragna loses his arm, his home, and his sister, and everything hits him at once, he very appropriately shouts: "Shit... Shit... SHIIIIIIIIIIIIT!"
  • The beginning of No More Heroes: "FUCKHEAD!"
  • In Call of Duty: Black Ops, Woods does this in the mission 'Payback', when participating in a game of Russian Roulette. He puts the gun to his head, screams "FUUUUCK!" and pulls the trigger. Nothing happens, but it adds to the tension of the scene.
  • NieR: Beginning of the intro (or whenever Kainé gets really pissed).
  • Dopelives4605's playthrough of Steamshovel Harry (a Deconstruction Game of Forced Tutorials) features a rather loud one at a critical moment. You can watch the full playthrough, or jump straight to the moment in question.
  • Sengoku Basara has Ishida Mitsunari and his rage fits, which cross into this territory when not solidly sitting on I'll Kill You!, This Is Unforgivable! or Say My Name. He can start at a slow, almost monotonous whisper, before bursting out into one or more profanities.
    Mitsunari: Hideaki... you BASTAAAARRRRD!
  • Cid from Final Fantasy VII, when trying to stop a moving train. He's already Sir Swears-a-Lot, but his "Shiiiiitt" is way over hilarious.
  • The reaction of the average Raider to the player successfully sneaking up on them for the purpose of shoving a Pineapple Surprise down their pants in Fallout 3. Before their messy demise, that is.
    Raider: Oh, FUCK ME!!! *BOOM*
  • Jack from the Mass Effect series is more a fan of the Cluster F-Bomb, but in Mass Effect 3 she takes on a job working as an academy teacher and has to maintain at least a pretense of professionalism. Until Joker ribs her about it one too many times, causing her to reply with a (cut-away-from) salvo of cursing. She probably didn't stop at just one, but the volume was clearly there.
  • The Inquisitor gets the honor of being the first BioWare Player Character to drop the F bomb, using a massive one in the trailer for the Trespasser expansion in rage at the ungrateful bastards she had saved time and again, and the scene can be replayed in game.
    Inquisitor: Damn it! We save Ferelden, and they're angry! We save Orlais, and they're angry! We close the Breach TWICE, and my own hand wants to kill me. Could one thing in this FUCKING world just stay fixed?!
    • Also a meta one for the players themselves. If you've played all three games, you know the amount and the level of shit each protagonist has had to go through in the course of saving Thedas, or in Hawke's case, keeping casualties to a minimum in Kirkwall. Despite EVERYTHING you do to save the world from whatever Eldritch Abomination has threatened it, it never stays saved, so the Inquisitor's anger at having to do so again, with both of Thedas's royal houses calling for her resignation, is entirely understood and justifiable.
  • This is how Zed, the first boss in Lollipop Chainsaw, attacks. The swear words he yells become physical words that come flying at you.
  • "Before we go any further, I'd just like to say one thing. BAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLS!!!"
  • The encounter with Poison in DmC: Devil May Cry is more infamous for the "Fuck you!" exchange, but it nonetheless involves the boss in question bellowing "WHOOO TTTHHHEEE FUUUCK ARE YOOOUUU?!" at the top of its lungs.
  • Near the end of Devil May Cry 5, Nero combines this with a Precision F-Strike during the final battle with Vergil, who he has just learned is his father. Not only that, but he's just had to stop him and Dante from killing each other, and is completely and utterly fed up with Vergil's shit. During the battle, Nero lets loose with a huge "FUCK YOU!" when he activates his Devil Trigger for the first time.
  • In Max Payne 3, after Max fails to stop Victor and Becker from escaping at the police station, he yells out an INCREDIBLY angry "GOD DAMMIT!", with surprisingly little Narm.
  • Entirely literal in Minecraft: Story Mode, with Soren's "Formidibomb," which the heroes plan to use to destroy the Wither Storm. It works, but the Command Block brings it back.
  • Peter Clement in Not for Broadcast does this whenever he's angry or hardcore drunk, which isn't a rare sight at all, and so isn't a combination of the two especially on a pro-Disrupt playthrough. The constant electric shocks from his microphone pack on Day 153: The Tempest causes him to swear like sailor using a trumpet. Graham Bannon also lets out an overly long swear on Day 56: The Telethon after Raj comes out wearing a fake monkey costume.
  • Red Faction II two player mode when Repta, Quill, or Tangier fall off the platforms they yell SHIT!!! really loud. Repta adds in "DAMN!!!" and "FUCK!!!" a few times. Shrike conversly, just yells throwing in a shit almost as an afterthought, and not a particularly loud one either.
  • Immediately after the white phosphorus atrocity committed by the player in Spec Ops: The Line, Lugo has one - hearing him scream "He turned us into FUCKING KILLERS!" is so far removed from his established character that it drives home just how bad things are. It gets worse.
  • From The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Philip Strenger, aka The Bloody Baron gives a big one while being lifted into the air by Basilisk during one of the game's Separate Scene Storytelling segments. Despite the direness of the situation, it's hard not to laugh at it.
  • One of Styx's possible lines when falling to his death in Styx: Master of Shadows is a very loud "FUUUUUUUUCK YOUUUUUUU!"
  • In TimeSplitters: Future Perfect, Cortez bellows a 'DAMMIT!' so loud that it echos back in time all the way back to the 70s after accidentally telling the Big Bad his own evil plan.
  • Ash after his game cartridge breaks in The End Is Nigh's intro.
    "FFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!"
  • As mentioned in the page quote, Jake Quinlan delivers one in Ripper when his girlfriend collapses in his arms.

    Fucking Visual Novels! 
  • Muv-Luv Alternative: "CHIKUSHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" (Means something along the lines of "Dammit", but in this context, it's more of a large "Fuck".)
  • In the last case of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, Phoenix combines this with Last-Second Word Swap when he realizes that the evidence he needs to convict the true culprit was destroyed in the courtroom bombing.
    Phoenix: ............F...Fuuuuuuuuuuuudge!
  • The Fire-Human from Water-Human in episode four, when he realizes he forgot to save his game before it crashed.

    Web Fucking Animation! 

    Fucking Webcomics! 

    Fucking Web Original! 
  • FFFFFFUUUUUUU-- a.k.a. The Rage Guy, who is arguably the father of all face memes.
    • Sometimes just FFFFFFFFFFFF.
    • Might double as meta example of Curse Cut Short.
  • The many sporkers of Das Sporking often are driven to this. Of note is Mervin's reaction of "FUCK YOU, WHORE!", whenever a character (usually one from the Twilight series) does something horrible.
  • Muschio of Dive Quest once blew off the ceiling of his base after a particularly awesome Precision F-Strike.

    Fucking Web Videos! 
  • Agent Elrond's Let's Play of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones has both Rondie and Roffie let one off after finally getting a chance to confront Valter.
  • The Angry Joe Show: Angry Joe has given a few:
    • Near the end of his review for Mindjack.
    • One of particular note is his Iron Man 2 review… which only bleeps out the middle third.
    • Cut Short: His video on the then-forthcoming 3D re-release of the Star Wars films begins with one.
    • Spoony's guest appearances during the Aliens: Colonial Marines review largely consisted of him yelling "Bullshit!" increasingly more angrily.
    • He gave one in his vlog about the second Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer during his rant against the film using Doomsday.
    • His biggest one, however, is when he live-streams No Man's Sky- the game crashes after 12 hours of play and he snaps.
  • The Angry Video Game Nerd:
    • In his review of the Godzilla games, the Nerd says that all he ever wanted as a child was a decent Godzilla game, but he never got it. But upon playing the 6th generation console Godzilla games, and discovering that they were brawler-type games to boot... the mighty "FUUUUUUUCCCKKK!!!" that came from the bottom of his heart is terrifying.
    • And in Episode 108, he engages in a Final Fantasy-esque battle with Ghosts 'n Goblins after being so pissed off by it. This trope, along with Precision F-Strike and Cluster F-Bomb are referenced word for word in the battle list. The Atomic F-Bomb is what finishes the game (and the video) off.
    • In his Superman 64 (The Commodore 64 one) review...
      Angry Video Game Nerd: Fuck. FUCK. FUCK! FUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKK!!!
    • In his Top Gun review, the atomic F-bomb directly follows the iconic "ASS!" It was reused in the Atari 5200 episode, when he realizes a custom controller be bought wouldn't fit in the controller ports.
    • He lets out another mighty F-bomb in the Darkwing Duck episode when he realizes that a safe will drop onto Darkwing if he stands still for too long.
  • Atop the Fourth Wall: Linkara, disgusted beyond comprehension by JLA: Act of God, asks the Continuity Alarm for permission to criticize its portrayal of Superman and Lois. The alarm agrees.
    Linkara: BULLLLLLLLLLLLLLL CRAPPPPPPPPPPPPP!
  • CinemaSins:
    • The narrator during their sin video of Transformers: Age of Extinction, after a character in the film criticizes sequels. The narrator calls it the movie trying to have its cake, eat it too, and then proclaim it's above cake.
    • He's also likely to do this when any sufficiently bad or lazy movie has aggravated him enough. It's still a rare occurrence, but the above film and the latter Fast and Furious films are surefire ways to piss him off.
  • Chorocojo's Misty lets one loose in the Pokémon Emerald Let's Play that can be heard at Rustboro City, in the middle of the ocean, in some undisclosed location, in space, and as we find out in the FireRed Lets Play, in Kanto.
  • Epic Rap Battles of History: "Cause I'm N-I-E-T-Z-S-C-H-E, AND I'LL END ANY MOTHERFUCKER LIKE MY NAME IN A SPELLING BEE!"
  • 5 Second Films: "Late for Work". A particularly impressive example, as it appears to last for a whole day.
  • Hat Films are known for swearing irregularly, but Ross has a tendency for shouting swearwords very loudly (and very rapidly), particularly when shouting "EAT SHIT". Smiffy has on occasion shouted cursewords loud enough for Duncan Jones and co to hear them in their office, too.
  • The Hellfire Commentaries LP of the same game also has a notable one when FTA finds out the truth about the "Who's the Captain" mission.
  • In Hewy's Animated Movie Reviews, after Hewy reviews Cars 2, Count Sigeeyai watches the trailer for Brave. in frustration, Count Sigeeyai yells "FUUUU-" and cuts to footage of an actual atomic explosion.
  • MLP Analysis: Combined with Curse Cut Short, Saberspark lets one out in "My Two Bits: Lesson Zero".
  • Michael Jones has a propensity for unleashing this in Rage Quit, along with regular Cluster F Bombing, during particularly aggravating games in Achievement Hunter videos.
    • Although Jack Pattillo doesn't swear as much as Michael, he does favor letting out an enraged "GODDAMNIT" or "FUCK" when he gets particularly riled up. During one moment in a "Pummel Party" LP, Jack gets shot in the face by Alfredo in the very last round and at the respawn point. He lets out an enraged "FUUUUCK! FUCK THIS GAME!" while the others are in hysterics because when Jack attempted to pull the same tactic on Ryan earlier in the game, he missed.
  • In the Mega Man vs Mega Man X episode of Sequelitis, Egoraptor drops one describing X's intro level.
  • Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) is far and away the record holder for most numerous and frequent use of the AFB. See/hear for yourself.
  • Strippin gives an absolutely glorious one here, when someone in Grand Theft Auto V does a kamikaze attack with a large plane.
  • Super Jeenius lets off several over the course of the Battletoads 4-player race. (The other three players were Pcull44444, NintendoCapriSun and ProtonJon.)
  • The Tourettes Guy does this practically every other word.
  • In What the Fuck Is Wrong with You?, Nash attempted one within 7 minutes of his Classic Doctor Who Review of 'Doctor Who and The Daleks' (yes, that Peter Cushing movie) complete with searing white-hot nerd rage exploding from his eye-sockets. It became a Curse Cut Short by a 'We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties' cut.
