** Really, this was the norm for localized Sega back in the day, especially [=RPGs=]. It would be faster to list games that ''didn't'' suffer from this.

** The French cover of ''Arena'' was somewhat better, depicting the face-off between the hero and a Mr.Fanservice-y looking dude along with a wizard companion nowhere to be found in the game preparing to slay some goblins.

* ''Manga/ACentaursLife'' is a SliceOfLife manga that occasionally features nudity, but unlike some of its monster girl-themed competition like Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl, it's usually in an everyday context and is less focused on {{Fanservice}}. Nevertheless, while the first few volumes had covers that depicted the everyday scenes the manga focuses on, there have been an increasing number of covers that are obvious attempts at {{Fanservice}}. Perhaps the most notable is Volume 8, which features an OffModel version of the main character in a swimsuit, featuring her larger-than-usual breasts dripping with water prominently on one side of the book, and a close up on her dripping behind on the other. In general, her breast size has also been increasing with each cover, far ahead of her in-story depiction, and included the visible shape of nipples through her clothes.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Beyond Beyond'' is a Danish CGI movie that's rather slow-moving with heavy themes of grief and death, and while it's not an entirely kid-unfriendly movie, it's one that could be hard to sit through for younger audiences. So having a cover like [[https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/91AojkgVlCL._SL1500_.jpg this]] is very, very misleading.

* Discussed in ''[[WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay Two Best Friends Funtime Adventures]]'': "Draw or Die". Matt and Pat somehow wind up in an otherworldly museum of videogame cover art. The final exhibit, implied to be the greatest cover art of all time, is the European/Japanese cover of ''{{ICO}}''. Matt, however, thinks this is boring, and insists the (much maligned) American cover art is much better because it features "a badass viking kid". Matt and Pat end up coming to blows over the disagreement.

** The [[http://www.alice-dsl.net/aymar/Reviews/Reviews_Robert%20Heinlein/Whelan/Robert%20A%20Heinlein_Friday_BEAN_Whelan%201.jpg Michael Whelan cover]] for the original del Rey edition shows her in a jumpsuit with nothing under it, unzipped to the waist. But what's especially funny about that painting is the shape of the several zipper tabs on the suit.
