** In the very first games the Pokémon Mansion journals give us a clear example of MedicalRapeAndImpregnate with Mew having been used to gestate it's abomination offspring Mewtwo. One single sentence in a journal pretty much starts the whole franchise with one of the heaviest kinds of evil possible.

* ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER 3}}'', with [[spoiler:Multiple incidents of FamilyUnfriendlyDeath, characters going through realistic emotional issues as a result, a scene where the characters (MushroomSamba) go on a terrifying hallucinogenic drug trip]], a villain who represents [[AllegoricalCharacter the sins of humanity]], animal abuse, child suicide, etc.

* ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER 3}}'', 3}}'' may have very cutesy cartoony looking graphics like it's predecessors, and with a prequel as lighthearted as ''VideoGame/{{Earthbound}}'', and how kid oriented it looks on the surface, most people don't expect a game like this to have things such as [[spoiler:Multiple incidents of FamilyUnfriendlyDeath, characters going through realistic emotional issues and very deep rooted psychological trauma as a result, a scene where the characters a 12 year old boy and his friends (MushroomSamba) go on a terrifying hallucinogenic drug trip]], a villain who represents [[AllegoricalCharacter the sins of humanity]], humanity]] and also runs what is basically a dictatorship over the protagonists' home, animal abuse, abuse with an electric collar, [[spoiler: a child suicide, committing suicide by electrocuting himself due to the psychological trauma he's experienced]], etc.

** In ''SonicTheHedgehog2006'', the main villain wants to destroy all of time and space, and Sonic ''gets murdered'' at the end of the game. (He gets better.)

Added DiffLines:

* Practically too many [[{{Mockbuster}} bootlegs]] (and originals) to count; featuring super inappropriate themes such as pregnancy, surgery, and sometimes even violence or sex (the last one can't help, but make you think [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic "fet...ish...ga...me"]])

* ''VideoGame/NiNoKuni'' is in a similar boat to ''Wind Waker'' in that it uses colourful anime-style graphics (specifically, it was animated by StudioGhibli) despite it dealing with some surprisingly dark themes. The main character (who's only 13 by the way) watches his mother die of a heart attack only a few minutes into the game, and the eponymous 'other world' is very clearly a CrapsaccharineWorld with everyone living in fear of an EvilSorceror who can effortlessly MindRape anyone who even ''thinks'' about standing up to him. Then there's Myrtle's story in the real world, which gives a surprisingly realistic view of how domestic troubles can traumatize kids psychologically. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And Drippy drops]] [[GoshDangItToHeck G-rated equivalents of]] ClusterFBomb all over the place.

* ''Videogame/FinalFantasyXV'' averts this with a T for teen rating for mild blood, violence, partial nudity, and language. However, the game has content and themes that make some gamers think that it should have been rated M. The game features very dark themes such as death and one of the characters even says the f word. Most of the main characters, including the protagonist are killed off as well.



** It's practically a RunningGag for the ''Kirby'' series that it will feature pretty dark elements and SurpriseCreepy moments with the latest game, ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'', probably being one of the darkest in the entire franchise, only to still be rated E for Everyone!
