* BrownNote: Batou's reaction to intruding on Motoko's cyberbrain while she's having a virtual orgy with some female friends. Having a male body, he's hit with sensory input which he has no nerve endings for, and it makes him feel very ill. In other words, he experienced a female orgasm in a male body.



* {{Squick}}: [[invoked]] Batou's reaction to the SexByProxy instance above. Having a male body, he's hit with sensory input which he has no nerve endings for, and it makes him feel very ill. In other words, he experienced a female orgasm in a male body.

Having Home Affairs Minister insinuate over video conference that he'll make trouble for Section 9 unless Motoko toes a male body, he's hit political line (this after their preceding mission caused a political mess). Motoko asks to link with sensory input which he has no nerve endings for, him directly and it makes him feel very ill. In other words, he experienced a female orgasm punch himself in a male body.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtificialLimbs: One of the chapters has Motoko's roommate Ran explaining in good detail the benefits of having a full-prosthetic body compared to just having part of your body replaced with prosthetics. Using Batou as a visual aid for comedic effect, they show him having his left arm replaced with a machine, and explain that the mechanical arm can only pick up as much weight as the organic body can handle. If you were to try and pick up too much weight, the arm would rip out right from the connection with the organic tissues.

* CourtMartialed: In the original manga Major Kusanagi is at one point charged with manslaughter in the line of duty after Section 9's antics (specifically her reflexively killing the person they were trying to ''capture'' when he snuck up behind her) are caught on film. [[spoiler:She skips court before the verdict is read to ferret out what's really going on.]]

* SexByProxy: Batou gets hit with this in-story. Aramaki orders him to contact Motoko and pull her off leave, so he proceeds to dive into her mind...while she's in the threesome. As noted elsewhere, it's not a pleasant experience for him. The scene got heavily censored in the original US release, but was included in the reprint (the page picture). Kodansha's latest version removes it entirely, but dialogue makes it clear what's going on.
