** ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' fits this as well, but to make it squarely in the PG range, a jarring CurseCutShort, in this case, Moana herself uttering "son of a-" in frustration, is added in.

** Creator/BlueSkyStudios actually deserves credit for '''averting''' this trope. They were specifically aiming for "G's", not only on both ''Rio'' films, but also on ''WesternAnimation/HortonHearsAWho'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePeanutsMovie''. Except for ''Rio'' at first, they've been successful at earning "G" ratings without their box office performances being threatened.

* ''Film/{{Arrival}}'', as [[MindScrew cerebral and even downright warped]] as its treatment of its FirstContact theme is, is remarkably discreet in its intensity, especially when [[Film/{{Interstellar}} compared with]] [[Film/{{Gravity}} other films]] [[Film/TheMartian like it]]. It would probably fit right at home alongside similarly cerebral sci-fi films rated PG, but a lone PrecisionFStrike uttered by Jeremy Renner's character bumps it up to a PG-13 - not that it would appeal to most under that age to begin with.

* Creator/{{Paramount}} originally wanted ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'' to be rated PG-13, but TreyParkerAndMattStone said they wouldn't make it unless it was rated R. In an inversion of this trope, Terrence and Phillip were originally going to sing "Mother Fucker", which got the film an NC-17 rating. To make it rated R, the song was changed to "Uncle Fucker". Trey and Matt said the change made the song funnier. Matt and Trey also said that the ping-pong ball scene was edited too in order to avoid the NC-17 rating. Originally, Creator/WinonaRyder actually ''was'' shooting ping-pong balls out of her vagina instead of just looking like it until we finished.

* A weird aversion happened with two movies based on adult animation in Quebec: there, ''BeavisAndButtHeadDoAmerica'' and ''TheSimpsonsMovie'' carry a G rating, despite the source material not being for kids.

* ''Film/OceansEleven'' has two noticeably gratuitous F-bombs, (though one is clearly PlayedForLaughs being used by [[SilentBob Yao, who doesn't speak English]]) contrasting the rest of the movie, which is squeaky-clean. Apparently it was added to secure a PG-13.

* The original North American licensor for ''Manga/SgtFrog'', Creator/ADVFilms, intended on getting the show on a children's network like Nickelodeon. Once Creator/FUNimation got the license, it was clear that they had no intent to do so, and tried their best to sell it to a modern anime fan by making sure it at least got a PG rating - while some of the show is almost better for it (episode 18 with Natsumi's bleeped ClusterFBomb works better than a Kansai accent for an American audience), sometimes it just feels gratuitous (on one memorable occasion Keroro says "pain in the ass" and the voice actor ''feels'' like he's forcing it). This didn't even work in Nova Scotia, where FUNimation's version still got a G rating. This is somewhat justified as the original Sgt. Frog manga was much closer to a PG13 rating, but the anime was toned down to be more child-friendly. Funimation's take on it might be trying to restore its original age rating to appeal to the manga's more diehard fans.
