** A bit further down the line, the German version of ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals'', named ''Generäle'', attempted to preclude this. The ''entire'' game was essentially changed. Why? The German authorities were fearful the original version would allow children to play out the (then-on-paper) war in Iraq. Factions had their names changed (''Generals'' proper used the United States, China, and a knockoff of Al-Qaeda), all infantry units became cyborgs (like they infamously did in the first three games, ''Tiberium Dawn'', ''Red Alert'' and ''Tiberian Sun'') - save for the Terrorist, who became a rolling bomb. This continued into the German version of Zero Hour, ''Stunde Null''.
* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'' (release date: October 2 2001) went under a few changes following 9/11. They changed the color scheme of the [[BigApplesauce Liberty City]] police from the NYPD's distinctive blue and white scheme to a Los Angeles inspired black and white color scheme. One mission that involved mentions of terrorism was removed, as was a mission-giver named Darkel who would have given the player missions involving acts of terrorism to bring down the city government (interestingly, most of his missions were removed ''long'' before 9/11 because they didn't fit the tone of the game; the ones that remained by that point were either reworked [El Burro's "I Scream, You Scream", in which the player utilizes a car bomb against a small Mafia family, was originally a Darkel mission which targeted innocent pedestrians] or just stripped of context entirely [most of the "Rampages"]). Also removed was the ability to hijack airplanes - the only plane left in the game, [[MeaningfulName appropriately named the "Dodo"]], is hard to acquire and has its wings sawn in half to make [[SomeDexterityRequired actual flight difficult]].

* The song "No Hard Feelings" by the BloodhoundGang includes the line "I'm missing you like a hijacked flight on September eleventh/I don't know who got on you but I'm not wrong in thanking them since it/ain't my job to fuck you on your birthday anymore." The album came out four years (almost to the day) after the attacks.

** The pilot is a hard aversion as it is deliberately designed to evoke the same sense of initial confusion and mounting horror of 9/11 with confused and garbled news reports and military bulletins painting an ever more grim picture of the genocide in progress before they all go silent.

* Prior to the attack, the "decontamination" gag in ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' ended with the CDA [[NoKillLikeOverkill blowing up the restaurant]] where Boo gets loose, resulting in a big mushroom cloud. Naturally, it was deemed too similar to the imagery of the attack and the gag was changed to the restaurant being engulfed by a gigantic plasma orb.
