* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In spite of being games normally placed in children's arcades, the games occasionally get away with some family-unfriendly stuff. The main series games allow operators to block certain songs, however.
** Le Code De Bonne Conduite. When translated into English, the lyrics describe [[spoiler:a man willing to cheat on his girlfriend with three other women, one of whom has a "big ass," only to get drunk and arrested, culminating with the man calling his girlfriend from jail to bail him out!]]
** Fever by Cho PD, just right at the beginning: [[spoiler:"You motherfuckers need to know what time it is right now, right here. It's Cho PD time right here."]]
** Uprock's video has "Oh Shit!" as UnreadablyFastText in a few scenes.
** Down Low's Lovething was on Prex 3. [[spoiler:The lyrics describe the act of having sex.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8jV4QNp_YU Dawgs in Da House]]'s routine on Pro 2 is literally designed for people to go Doggy Style.
** Go ahead, translate any of PXNDX's songs' lyrics.
** On Prime, there is Epik High's One, which came with it's music video like most other K-Pop songs. The video shows us the pretty image of [[spoiler:a girl attempting suicide by swallowing an obscene amount of pills.]]
*** Ironically, PXNDX's "Los Malaventurados No Lloran" from the previous game (''Fiesta 2'') was the only licensed song not to have its original video as its BGA because it featured ''[[DrivenToSuicide the exact same theme]]'' as in One's music video.
** On Prime, the background to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDgryg3_IVo Nemesis]]. You got a girl glomping [[LesYay another girl's]] boob for 10 seconds and enjoying it? Both of the girls are underage? And that specific [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/d5/Pedobear.png bear]] is upset?
** On Prime, the background for Gentle Stick's Hestia. Combined with the artist's name, a woman looking like she's moaning in an aroused way? Yeps.
** BLACKPINK's BOOMBAYAH full song in Prime 2. The S17 chart in the lyric part translated as "middle finger up" has an accompanying center hold note and two upper notes after the hold note. Middle finger that is.

* DifficultySpike: In Fiesta 2, there's the T-Rain, a double mode Train. It starts with a really cool and very cheerful song, [[spoiler:Shanghai Romance]], which isn't at all hard, only a little tiring, but that song alone is enough to cheer you up, then comes [[spoiler:Two Guys]], another very cool and slightly easier song, way to boost your mood with cool songs and fun routines. This Train will only get better and more fun, right? [[spoiler:Good luck. Next is Ignis Fatuus, Fiesta 2's ThatOneBoss. Are you ready to get hurt REALLY hard? I don't think you expect this one to be easy. [[NintendoHard Level 24]], baby. ]]Last is [[spoiler:Heartbreaker]] which isn't really hard, either.
