* [[MsFanservice Rouge the Bat]] is pratically ''the'' anthromorphic version of this trope for the entire ''Sonic'' franchise. ** ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' was rated 3+/E for everyone, perhaps surprising when you consider that the lyrics to "Kick the Rock!" of the Wild Canyon stage are rather suggestive just listening to it. It manage to get away with such references such as Rouge being described as "sexy" along with being jabbed at with this line, "Give up the emerald or die, I don't love you!" Not only that, Rouge also got away with [[JigglePhysics jiggle physics]] -- to the point of {{Gainaxing}} at certain points -- throughout the game. *** The JigglePhysics of Rouge becomes funnier when you realize that her boobs bounce in time with her ears.

* An ongoing dispute since ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' was released in 1999 rages: just what exactly did the singer say at 1 minute into "My Sweet Passion (Theme of Amy Rose)"? [[{{Mondegreen}} Nobody seems to know for sure]], but to paraphrase ''Film/BladesOfGlory'', it's (probably) provocative. Just [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXHw8o6UI9M listen]] to the lyrics all the way through. Consensus: "The Sphinx looked so cute, I had to shave it." In a sultry voice. And the song was long enough to be played during Amy's end credits ''sans'' lyric-masking dialogue. It doesn't help that the background music (SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic that it is) wouldn't feel out of place in a porno... and some of the rest of the lyrics are pretty... suggestive. It ''is'' about [[SmittenTeenageGirl a pre-teen in love]], after all. * Amy herself [[PantyShot crosses straight into this]] from the very moment you choose her at the Character Select screen.

* In ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' there is little girl in front of the Central Station who is about ten years old (or younger), and says the following to a 16 year-old echidna when he talks to her. -->''Sonic is blue. Tails is orange. Amy is pink. And you’re red. The color of '''passion'''. Cool!'' ** Knuckles' theme song , "Unknown From ME", contains the line "Wild and hungry ain't a damn thing funny". Another line in this song. "I don't need a partner I get it on by myself" implies that Knuckles masturbates. ** An ongoing dispute since ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' was released in 1999 rages: just what exactly did the singer say at 1 minute into "My Sweet Passion (Theme of Amy Rose)"?

[[AC:General]] * Amy probably doesn't wear a bra. Her open back dress shows her bare back but not bra straps. [[AC:{{Video Games}}]]

** In Archie's ''Comicbook/{{Sonic the Hedgehog}}'' comic, Rouge gets into a [[CatFight personal confrontation]] with Julie-Su, leading to this exchange: --->'''Julie-Su:''' [[StandardFemaleGrabArea Let go of me]], [[CurseCutShort you b]]--\\ '''Rouge:''' Bat, dear. Remember it. *** And ten issues later: ---->'''Knuckles:''' You'd do that, Rouge?\\ '''Julie-Su:''' She'd '''do''' anything. \\ '''Rouge:''' Watch it, pinky.

** In Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog comic, Blaze has been having visions about Sonic in her sleep, and seeks him out. They fight, and afterwards, we get the following exchange: --->'''Blaze:''' You are '''indeed''' the one I have sought out. No question.\\ '''Sonic:''' You've been looking for '''me'''? Who '''are''' you exactly?\\ '''Blaze:''' The one who will now haunt your dreams the way you have haunted mine! Farewell, Sonic... Until I have '''need''' of you!\\ '''Sonic:''' (thinking to himself) Haunt my dreams, huh? I wonder...

* When reading Tails the story of Literature/LittleRedRidingHood in ''WesternAnimation/{{Sonic SatAM}}'', Bunnie Rabbot refers to the Big Bad Wolf as "nastier than a [[UnusualEuphemism one-eyed snake.]]" * For a similar version from the Archie Comics verse, we get this little jewel after Tails asks if Antoine n' Bunnie will be bored while he's off at his little workshop. -->'''Antoine:''' "Will we be bored", he asks. -->'''Bunnie:''' You hush. He's still a young'un. ** If you keep in mind that they're supposed to be on their honeymoon, one doesn't have to guess what they plan to do with their alone time... * An earlier example from the aforementioned Rouge examples: In Archie's ''Comicbook/{{Sonic the Hedgehog}}'' comic SpinOff ''Knuckles the Echidna'', one arc is centered around one of Charmy Bee's friends dying of [[FunWithAcronyms Lemon Sundrop Dandelion]] poisoning. Take the first letter from each word and what do you get? Subtle, huh? ** According to WordOfGay, they were forced to do this to get the Rotor/Cobar relationship through in the "Mobius: X Years Later" AlternateTimeLine arc (though, in a subversion, on orders from the parent company to avoid the inevitable InternetBackdraft, than as a deliberate attempt to sneak it past the censors). Just look at these exchanges, and see for yourself: --> '''Rotor:''' Having confirmed my findings of the entropic effect upon Mobius with Cobar, an Echidna scientist possessing a formidable intellect with whom I ''enjoy a close personal relationship.'' --> '''Espio:''' Well, Rotor wasn't forthcoming, but I suspect he was also here to see Cobar. --> '''Knuckles:''' That's not surprising -- ''given their history!'' --> '''Cobar:''' My dear Rotor, and I say this with ''affection'' and respect, but have you gone mad? ** There was also a nod at the whole early 90s "Teen Talk Barbie" controversy with a story involving Robotnik building doll-versions of Rabbot and Sally that say phrases like [[StayInTheKitchen "I belong in the kitchen".]]

* Inverted in SonicTheComic: At first the writers almost got into a lawsuit once due to the fact they weren't listening to their guidelines, but later Sega stopped paying attention. Thus the writers were given a major amount of freedom that other adaptations weren't. Sonic and friends could be in the presence of alcohol (not a GRatedDrug, and they refused to drink it though), one arc was name "Village of the Damned", and violence was abound (though oddly [[BloodlessCarnage bloodless]]).

* ''[[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries Sonic Rush]]'' has awesome music, but IntercourseWithYou is rather blatant in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pRmZInUsKA "Vela Nova."]] Especially when taken in account the context it was used (a fight between Sonic and Blaze). The moans, the noises of deep breathing, and the sexy female voice moaning "Let's do it" in the ending? Veeeeery subtle.
