* UnusualEuphemism: The fan translation, at least, gives a few... ''interesting'' examples to describe the male genitalia, such as "love meat", "love rocket", "stick and bags", and so on.

* VagueAge: With the exception of Aoba [[spoiler: (and Sei, by extension)]] and Noiz, no one's ages are confirmed. Judging by appearance, Mink would be in his mid or late thirties, and Mizuki would be between Aoba and Koujaku's age. Koujaku is estimated to be at least three years older than Aoba but no exact age is given; [[spoiler: as an android]], Clear's real age isn't specified; and the closest hint you get to Virus and Trip's ages is that they're six years apart.

Twenty years in the future, in Midorijima, an island southwest of Japan, a guy named Aoba lives with his tough-as-nails doctor granny, Tae, and his dog-type [[ArtificialIntelligence All-mate]][[note]]a form of AI who work primarily as information networks, and implicitly, companions for those who have them[[/note]], Ren. Aoba's always found it odd [[ArousedByTheirVoice how dropping his voice to a certain inflection]] could drive people to call up Heibon, the shop he's working at, to hear it again and again, buying Heibon's mechanical goods every time. But hey, it does its job, so why not make use of it? Sadly, said power can't really help him with that trio of rambunctious children that always show up at the store just to make a mess. He also has to contend with his unusual friends that are involved in gang activity that he's long since left behind. His life is an amicable one, although as with all who've been left to carry their lives out in the Old Resident District in the years of Toue's acquisition of Midorijima, it is by no means prosperous. In those ensuing years, a game called "Ribsteez" (also known as "Rib") rose in popularity, in which gangs of young men would go out of their way to engage in turf wars against one another. More recently, another competitor have been taking over people's interests; a game called "Rhyme," whose participants and their watchers scatter throughout the city to engage in fights that unfold on a virtual reality but are seen right before their eyes. Anyone can play "Rhyme" if they have an All-mate and the fights are mediated and started by Usui, a judge with a female appearance and a male voice who randomly appears to signal the start of a match. Recently, a trend of "drive-by" matches have started, where people can force others into a "Rhyme" match with no mediation by Usui and most dangerously, any injuries taken during the game can impact the player's health in real life.

** RE:Code replaces the sex scenes with tamer content and tones down the violence and gore, but the sexual content was replaced with more HoYay scenes. General nudity is also censored (e.g. Clear's naked apron scene now has him wearing boxers). Additionally, Mizuki has his own route in RE:Code.
