* ''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub'' is a cute Anime dating sim that has 4 beautiful girls to date! It must be for kids, or at least teens! [[spoiler: Oh dear LORD no! Doki Doki Literature Club is a psychological horror game that starts up right when one of the main girls hangs herself, and after that the game gets more insane with gore, terrifying imagery, graphic self harm, and MORE.]]

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' may use chibi sprites for the characters, but the themes and settings are as dark as they can be that no child would understand or should ever see. War, betrayals, manipulation, lots of murder, and even implied rape are all in the game, even the graphical details don't show it. The sequels heavily dial back the dark themes and appear more approachable for children to play, though there are some darker themes that can pop up every now and then.

* The hit AugmentedReality MobilePhoneGame ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' is an unusual inversion of [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids the usual case]] with other ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games; this game is tailored to the tastes and lifestyles of mainstream adult smartphone users and is [[NintendoHard danger]][[RealityEnsues ous]] for some children (''Pokémon'''s traditional demographic) to play on their own, and the developer, Niantic, enforces this trope by adding a warning pop-up each time the game loads, informing the player not to do dangerous or illegal things like play while driving or trespass onto private properties and dungeons, but thanks to the official franchise's ''ridiculously low'' rating restrictions and extremely high smartphone adoption, especially in third world countries, some children enjoy the game nonetheless and some parents play the game with their kids.

** Most {{Atlus}} games are like this. Like the ''VideoGame/LuminousArc'' series and ''VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey'' series features cute character design that won't be out of place in children's cartoons. But the story are complex and certainly not exactly child-friendly, and those scary monsters are actually the least of their worries. That is of course if the [[NintendoHard difficulty don't throw them off]] in the first place.

* ''VideoGame/TheBattleCats'': Although the game has cute cartoon graphics and a simple story, it also features references to bondage-dom couples, numerous Cats that have referenced genitalia, and sexy legs Cats. It being a MobilePhoneGame to begin with and rated "T" should tell you everything you need to know.

* Platform-wise, {{Mobile Phone Game}}s fell under this trope. The major users of mobile phones are ''usually'' adults, and they're designed for the adults to play during recess times (even ones with no offensive contents). However [[HitlerAteSugar due to the stereotypes above]], ''many'' parents are willing to borrow their phones for kids to play, ignoring how tricky the {{microtransactions}} are and, as said above, how difficult are they to play, and {{Phoneaholic Teenager}}s are willing to try themselves in no matter how hard it is.
