** The WiiU has a similar problem. [[https://twitter.com/prepress_mngr_T/status/270402196867252224 One dad was quite angry he couldn't name his son's Mii]] '''Kill'''ian.
* Good luck talking about "heroes" or "zeroes" in the chat or the names and descriptions of tracks/carts/characters in Videogame/ModNationRacers, because the censoring software censors "ero", even if you didn't intend to type "Erotic" or "Erotica".

* Good luck Miiverse automatically bans people who discuss ''VideoGame/ProjectM'' for [[FelonyMisdemeanor discussing "criminal activity"]]. This includes the abbreviation "PM", which can get you banned even if you're talking about "heroes" or "zeroes" in the chat time or the names and descriptions of tracks/carts/characters in Videogame/ModNationRacers, because the censoring software censors "ero", even if you didn't intend to type "Erotic" or "Erotica".''VideoGame/PaperMario''.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Slitherio}}'', setting "Scunthorpe" as your snake's name will filter it to "S''runt''horpe". "Shuttlecock" becomes "shuttlerooster".

* For AprilFoolsDay 2016, streaming website iVlog censored certain words in amusing ways. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately), the Scunthorpe Problem existed with the filter, so (for example) Scunthorpe became Scabbagehorpe.

* A message board devoted to ''Radio/AmericanTop40'' automatically rendered the phrase "kiss my ass" as "I disagree". Which resulted in a bewildering reference to the famed tribute album ''I Disagree: Classic {{[[Music/Kiss]]}} Regrooved''.

* ''VideoGame/LoveLiveSchoolIdolFestival''[='=]s filter carried over in the English version from the Japanese version with no editing whatsoever, resulting in not only sloppy searching for swear words, but also some completely innocuous words blocked for presumably copyright infringement. The biggest backfire of all is that it scans for the word "ho" with no context, meaning that users can't say the name of the series's main protagonist, '''Ho'''noka Kousaka, or ''the name of the game itself, LoveLive Sc'''ho'''ol Idol Festival''.

* AOL once banned users from putting the word "horsemen" in their profiles. Sucked for anyone who wanted to mention the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse or talk about RicFlair!

* Amazon.com's profanity filters will delay or block reviews or comments with "four-letter"" words, even if these are buried inside ''the name of the author of the work being reviewed'' (for example, Yamashita).

** They have a similar problem with naming a custom map in Halo 3. Among others, you can't use the word assault... ''even though there's a game type called "Assault"''!
