Atomic F-Bomb

Go To

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!:

    open/close all folders 

    Fucking Anime and Manga! 
  • 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.
  • End of Evangelion Misato delivers one when trying to get through to Shinji with the force of an N2 mine.
  • 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.
  • 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...
  • 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:
  • 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.

    Fucking Comic Books! 
  • "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".
  • 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?
    SHIELD Agent: There were four other letters...
    Dugan: I bet there were.
  • 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".
  • One of the first pages of The Invisibles has a character screaming "FUCK!" with very large font and multiple "U"s.

    Fan Fucking Fiction! 

    Fucking Film! 
  • 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.
  • 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!"

    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!
  • 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).
  • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: When Blondie dumps Tuco in the desert, Tuco basically belts out the Spanish version of the previous.
    • 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:

    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 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?

    Fucking MMORPGs! 

    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
    • 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.
  • 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!
  • "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":
    But I'm right next door to hell
    • Also from Guns N' Roses, "It's So Easy":
    ''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:
  • 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...
    • "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!"

    New Fucking Media! 
  • 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.

    Fucking Religion and Mythology! 

    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 techical 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!"

    Fucking Theater! 

    Fucking Video Games! 

    Fucking Visual Novels! 

    Fucking Webcomics! 

    Fucking Web Originals! 
  • The narrator of CinemaSins 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.
  • In 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 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 Dragonballs 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. (Namek, given its gravity, is probably, much, MUCH larger than Earth.)
    • 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!
  • 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.
    *cuts to Mokuba watching the video from episode 28*
    Video: "You my Wang G?" "Yes, I am Colonel Wang." "Can I touch you?"
    *Checks the duel data screen. Kaiba's F-Bomb is heard through the audio feed*
    Mokuba: *Talks while Kaiba's F-Bomb continues* Uh oh, Seto's in trouble; I must save him! To the Mokubamobile!
    *60's Batman-esque scene transition*
    Mokuba: Mokubamobile away!
    Yami: There isn't a Mokubamobile!
    Mokuba: *Kaiba's F-bomb is audible again* Big brother, are you okay?!
  • Hellsing Abridged has Zorin Blitz roaring out the C-bomb as Seras is tearing apart her zeppelin with twin Harkonnen II cannons.
  • In the seventh season of Red vs. Blue, Simmons drops one when he realizes that the Meta, the Big Bad of the previous season, has found their new base.
  • In his review of the Godzilla games, The Angry Video Game 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...
    • 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.
  • 5 Second Films: "Late for Work". A particularly impressive example, as it appears to last for a whole day.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The Fire-Human from Water-Human in episode four, when he realizes he forgot to save his game before it crashed.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! GX: The Abridged Series: Jaden does a literal version of this when Chumley speaks for the first time.
  • Green Goblin delivers a pretty epic one during Zero Hour #5 when Future!Lex reveals that the Big Bad is Darkseid.
  • Super Jeenius lets off several over the course of the Battletoads 4-player race. (The other three players were Pcull44444, NintendoCapriSun and ProtonJon.)
  • 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
  • Muschio of Dive Quest once blew off the ceiling of his base after a particularly awesome Precision F-Strike.
  • Let's Play Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) is far and away the record holder for most numerous and frequent use of the AFB. See/hear for yourself.
  • 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.
  • Michael of the Rage Quit series on Rooster Teeth has unleashed this, along with regular Cluster F Bombing, during particularly aggravating games.
  • Combined with Curse Cut Short, Saberspark lets one out in "My Two Bits: Lesson Zero".
  • In the Mega Man vs Mega Man X episode of Sequelitis, Egoraptor drops one describing X's intro level.
  • 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.
  • Strippin gives an absolutely glorious one here, when someone in Grand Theft Auto V does a kamikaze attack with a large plane.
  • 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.
  • The Tourettes Guy does this practically every other word.
  • 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.

    Western Fucking Animation!
