* In the first few ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' games, several characters didn't have their ages listed in the American releases because they were underage but still delivered just as much (if not more) {{Fanservice}} as the adult women. ''DOA 4'' had a TimeSkip that put the entire cast at 18 or older, meaning suddenly it was okay to print their ages in the American versions. Plenty of fans suspect this trope is in effect with Marie Rose thanks to her ElegantGothicLolita design and her being the only her figure being less [[BuxomIsBetter developed]] than the other women in the game, but she actually is 18 years old.

* ''Visualnovel/FateStayNight'' has a splash page at the beginning noting that all characters in sex scenes are of legal age. Due to half those characters being in high school, there is some debate over whether this is BlatantLies or just taking advantage of Japan's slightly more complicated age of consent laws.
** Yet again, the only one that can't be considered "close enough" is Sakura. Everyone else is only a year off at [[SecondYearProtagonist age seventeen]] with the assumption that they were slightly aged up for the purposes of localization.
* All of the professionally translated Eroge sold in the US features characters that are at least 18, no matter how young they look. The Sagara Family, in particular, features four 18 to 22-year-old sisters from the same youngish mother.

eighteen (or their country, state, or province's age of majority) will often be very eager to point it out as well as take advantage of the new privileges and rights they have. It's justified because since their becoming of the age of majority, people around them will most likely see them as "just a kid" and they therefore have to do some work to actually remake their images into those of adults. Meanwhile, any establishment that has an age requirement for its patrons tends to make it a policy to card anyone who doesn't look 30, just to be sure.
