* While not outright banned, ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' had the full card art and head shots for the servants Boudica and Mata Hari censored in the Chinese release due to them having some of the biggest busts of all servants. Bizarrely, the ban ''only'' applies to those two servants; not only have other servants with similar size busts[[note]]i.e., Francis Drake[[/note]] avoided the ban, but servants that are based around actual Chinese historical figures, such as Jing Ke or Zhuge Liang, have been able to avoid such a fate as well.

The trope BannedInChina is named for the People's Republic of UsefulNotes/{{China}}, a country famous for banning works seemingly arbitrarily. It might not be the most prolific, but it's certainly one of the most visible, because (a) China is a big country and a big export market, so producers want their works to make it there however they can and (b) China is also very authoritarian and fairly paternalistic, so the government has a lot of power and inclination to ban anything it feels has a bad influence on the people. This, of course, would include works which criticize or undermine the government, make fun of China or the Chinese as a whole, or reference the more unpleasant events in China's history, particularly the history the current regime was around for.

** ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' saw a limited release, in spite of predictions that it would be banned in retaliation for Disney financing ''Kundun''. It even had Creator/JackieChan as the voice of Li Shang.

* Between 2000 and 2013, China banned ''all'' video game consoles, largely because the government had very little control over what was released on them. Then Nintendo made the ''iQue Player'' specifically for the Chinese market, and that allowed China to ease into allowing importation of video games and consoles again, just with strict regulation of the type of game that can be imported.
