** In one of the expansion packs it's possible to "[[GRatedSex Woo Hoo]]" in an elevator. The little text bubble that comes up afterwards finishes with "going down."

to:

** In the French translation of the games, "[[GRatedSex Woo Hoo]]" has been translated by "Crac-crac". The translators basically replaced an onomatopoeia without sexual meaning (out of context) by a ''real'' (albeit childish) slang about a sexual intercourse.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''VideoGame/{{Voez}}'' song iNSPiRED has a clearly audible use of "Fuck". In a game rated E for Everyone. This is likely because it was added in an update, and thus isn't rated by the ESRB. It also probably helps that it was also surrounded by use of the similar sounding "Funk".

* KnightsOfTheOldRepublic had a specific example. LucasArts was notoriously against ''any'' gay or lesbian content in the Star Wars universe (only a few years earlier, they had actively sent out lawyers to shutter SlashFic sites). Creator/BioWare dialed down the LesYay, but cranked up the subtext via the voice acting and managed to sneak Juhani past the radar, making her the first established gay character for both their canon and the StarWarsExpandedUniverse.
* In retrospect, ''[[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Knights of the Old Republic 2]]'' has Kreia talking about sex relatively often, though always in her mysterious and detached wise-old-mentor way. Atton's mind, she reports, is clouded by "certain... ''base lusts''". To say nothing of the curious word choice she uses to ask if a male PC has ever imagined [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Handmaiden]] "defeated utterly, completely at your mercy". Also, when a male Exile says he wants to build a lightsaber, Kreia tells him that there is great significance attached to lightsabers, "especially for the male."

Added DiffLines:

** There's also the plot of the games, which make no effort to hide that the [[GreyAndGrayMorality "Good" Guys]] train the next generation [[TykeBomb from toddlerhood]], or that some of the bad guys got branded such for such morally-gray acts such as murder in self-defense. There are on-screen character deaths due to violence, and constant reminders that 95% of the cast are barely out of their teens and have career choices of "underground wetwork" or "demon hunting where 'suicide mission' is the norm". ''Estival Versus'' is a game-long introspection of the fact the girls are extremely likely to die young and with regrets, having never experienced a normal life. Frankly the cavalcade of fanservice tropes and slice-of-life interludes are needed to keep the series from being [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy unpalatably bleak]], yet there's no warning on the box about how heavy the themes are.

** The game features a Nopon who decided to write a "soaring love ballad." His lyrics for said song include the line, "Just looking at you, honey, makes my boiled egg go runny!" [[JizzedInMyPants ...Just what exactly is he implying?]].

** Molag Bal is involved in this again in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline Online]]''. One of his most infamous acts (which is ''really'' saying something) was to perpetrate the first rape, turning the innocent woman (Lamae Beolfag) into the first vampire, who proceeded to rape and kill the nomads who cared for her, bringing undeath into Mundus (the mortal plane). ''Online'' only uses thinly-veiled inferences to rape, with his actions toward Lamae referred to interchangeably as "ravaged", "defiled" and "mutilated". ''Skyrim'' also never uses the team "rape", but conversations with [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Serana]] state that the process of becoming a Vampire Lord is a very humiliating and traumatizing act of "defilement", and also happens to be gender-targeted towards women.

* Too many to list in ''ArTonelico''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoODv8LVib8 This is just one of them.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soN7F18yiB8 Even better example.]] Skip to around 5:35.
** ''On the back of the box'' it says "You never Forget Your First." Granted, it's referring to the Dive mechanic, but still!
*** The Dive mechanic itself counts, starting with the proper grammar for it being "Diving into a girl". By the third game, they stopped pretending entirely, with one character making a big deal over her "sacred Diving virginity". ''Only'' the fact she uses the word diving every time separates this from the TheirFirstTime trope.
** The third game gives us Finnel, a possible love interest and hardcore sub who gets off on being talked down to and verbally abused. This is constantly alluded to and eventually spelled out point blank, yet the game's rated for ''mild'' sexual themes.
** Also purging, which involves the party's casters stripping for a power boost. There's four levels: Fully clothed, minus the flashier parts of their outfit, down to lingerie, and finally white panties and bra. The narrative makes it abundantly clear that last is just for the sake of getting a marketable rating and as far as the characters are concerned, it's a birthday suit.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' includes the [[InGameNovel in-game book series]] ''The 36 Lessons of Vivec''. Penned by the [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Man]]-[[PhysicalGod God]] himself, they include, [[BreakingTheFourthWall among]] [[FauxSymbolism other]] [[InJoke things]], multiple barely-concealed allegorical descriptions of gay sex between Vivec and the Daedric Prince of Rape and Violation, Molag Bal. "Biting of spears" and "piercing of the second aperture" indeed.

* ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonAndTheDiabolicalBox'' gives us one at the beginning when everyone's favorite WrongGenreSavvy Inspector Chelmey questions why a Layton has an AdorablyPrecociousChild hanging around as his [[HoYay appre]][[{{Shotacon}} ntice]]. Luke's reaction doesn't help. The same game features a flirty woman character who works at would could be a dance hall, could be a brothel. She appears at the end of a red-lit street, where you are prevented from going by a policeman when you first gain access to the area. The policeman implies he won't let you past because of Luke's age.

** One 'blink and you'll miss it', The Fairy Queen in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', who is very wise and repeatedly calls Link child, showing there's a significant ill-defined age gap, says [[ShotaCon he's her type]]. Link being anywhere between 9 and 12 makes it worse.
