** ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand'', also known as ''Kirby Wii'', is the first game in the ''Kirby'' series to have an E10+ rating, but it's hardly more violent than any other game in the series. The Japanese version averted this by having it rated A, which is the E rating for Japan. This would mean that either the Japanese or the Americans are missing something with this game.

You pop in the disc (or crack the cover) and find, surprise surprise, that the series hasn't really changed at all. What's changed is how its content is ''seen''. [[InformedObscenity Something that might have been perfectly innocuous and acceptable]] [[ValuesDissonance 20 or 10 or even five years ago is now regarded as]] automatic grounds for a rating bump, even if everything else in the series is all rainbows and unicorns. This also happens as [[UsefulNotes/MediaClassifications ratings systems]] grow more robust over time, introducing more tiers of ratings and allowing for more precise classification. More {{egregious}} cases can be chalked up to [[KnightTemplar overzealous]] {{Media Watchdog}}s and MoralGuardians.
