* In #4 ''The Message'', Marco mentions having "weird dreams about that woman from ''Series/{{Baywatch}}''." Now, what kind of dreams might those be?

* In ''The Reunion'':
-->"Alive. My mother was alive. I saw Rachel giving me the fish eye from across the room. I mouthed that one word: alive. Evidently Rachel doesn't read lips. She misunderstood what I'd said and responded by mouthing [[PrecisionFStrike two words I won't repeat]].

* In the fourth ''Megamorphs'' book, Tobias makes references to gay kids being drawn to the Sharing. For a book aimed at kids in the mid- to late-nineties? It's VERY amazing that this slipped past the radar.

** A similar reference occurs in ''The Pretender'', where Tobias wonders how people would be able to get along with Hork-Bajir if they couldn't "tolerate some gay kid".
* In ''The Experiment'', we get Ax's narration of a driver's reaction to Marco's [[DrivesLikeCrazy driving]]:

** It's not just Edriss's backstory either--''VISSER'' features a cocaine-addicted actress nicknamed "Jenny '''[[MeaningfulName Lines]]'''" (who is so addicted she doesn't care that an alien has taken over her mind so long as she keeps getting cocaine), Visser Three bribing a homeless man with alcohol, and various and sundry other sneaky little additions. For a series marketed at preteens, ''VISSER'' is a very adult book.

** Same book, Rachel is approached by an older man who wants to offer her a ride home. She rightfully runs away, and he pursues, making it quite apparent to adult readers his intent is to rape a teenage girl. Luckily, Rachel being able to change into animals becomes... well... [[JustForPun an elephant in the room.]]
* Human Ax's entire comedic shtick is, in a nutshell, the fact that his alien instincts make him act like TheStoner when he's in human form: he has insatiable cravings for junk food, he eats huge quantities of food in single sittings, he pronounces everything in a monotonous drawl with AccentUponTheWrongSyllable, he gets weird fixations on certain movies and TV shows, he finds random things inexplicably fascinating, etc. They never directly reference drugs, but the whole joke is painfully obvious when you reread the books as an adult.

** Speaking of Ax and his human morph there's the ongoing joke that all his human friends find his human form to be disturbingly attractive.
* In some versions of #22 ''The Solution'', Rachel calls David a bastard. (This was changed to 'creep' in later editions.)

* In the third ''Megamorphs'' book, the Animorphs go to the 1930s, where Cassie is harassed by a racist. They skip right over what he says to Cassie's internal reaction, but it's made obvious that he called her the n-word.

* There's that whole subplot in ''The Exposed'' where the Animorphs raid a crackhouse. No, really. They raid a crackhouse during a SWAT investigation. And end up tossing aside some guy who's "too stoned to move." [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids Children's books]]!
* Let's not forget that Rachel "gets off" of excitement and battle. Or the many uses of the word "crap" from calling David a piece of crap in #22 ''The Solution'', to Marco asking Jake how he dealt with the crap of Controllers trying to rope him into the Sharing in #10.
