* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' is rated TV-14 on Adult Swim, but TV-MA on DVD (probably because all the bleeped cursing is uncensored). However, many popular episodes like "Rixty Minutes" (which has a parody of Garfield dropping many [[ClusterFBomb f-bombs at Jon]] and the Lucky Charms Mascot getting his entrails ripped out by zombie kids) and "Look Who's Purging Now" get by with a TV-14 rating. The only episode with a TV-MA rating at the moment is "Interdimensional Cable 2: Tempting Fate", likely due to the subject matter (Jerry must donate his.. er, special male body part... to save a dignitary).

* After its initial controversy, ''VideoGame/NightTrap'' was one of the first games rated M by the ESRB for "Realistic Violence". The 25th Anniversary edition was later rerated T for "Violence, Blood, Suggestive Themes".

* After its initial controversy, The 25th anniversary re-release of ''VideoGame/NightTrap'' was one of bumped the first games rated game’s rating down from an M by the ESRB for (for "Realistic Violence". The 25th Anniversary edition was later rerated Violence") to a T for (for "Violence, Blood, Suggestive Themes".Themes"). it should be noted this game was what kickstarted the formation of the ESRB, was one of the first games to be rated M, and was highly controversial at the time for supposedly “promoting” violence against women. In actuality, the “violence” in the game was deliberately made cartoonish and over-the-top, and the controversial bathroom scene (which actually [[WhatTheHellPlayer reprimands you if you don’t save the girl]]) is very tame by today’s standards.

* When ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' premiered on Nickelodeon in 1999, the rating for the series was TV-Y (Like most other Nicktoons). Towards the end of 2006, the show was bumped up to a TV-Y7. And in Russia, the series wasn't rated on TNT, but is said to be suitable for kids. When [=SpongeBob=] moved to 2x2, however, it recieved a 16+ rating, the Russian equivalent of TV-14 (the same rating that was used for shows like ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad''. amongst others), despite no changes in content.

* ''VideoGame/Lunar2EternalBlue'' was originally given a K-A rating by the newly-formed ESRB. The remake got a T rating. In this case, the original game had caught a case of WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids, with partial nudity, swearing, plenty of NightmareFuel, and voyeurism in a game with cute anime graphics. A more experienced ESRB rated the remake appropriately.

* The famous 1939 film ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' has most recently been rated PG, despite being a G-rated film for decades. It's probably just the 3D version, though. Granted, the tornado and the Wicked Witch of the West are scary for many young children.
