* ''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, sexy legs Cats, and homosexuality in spades. It being rated "T" should tell you everything you need to know.

* The (To be fair, newly formed) ESRB must have been HIGH when they rated LunarEternalBlue, a game with blood, partial nudity, swearing, sexual innuendo. and heaping helpings of NightmareFuel, a "K-A" rating. Thankfully the [[Lunar2EternalBlueComplete the remake]] for UsefulNotes/PlayStation gave it a more fitting T rating.

** The fourth game, ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'', actually ''has'' been given an "M" from the ESRB, for scenes that include the ability to "shoot hostages and unarmed civilians" (No doubt related to the addition of Red Hood and ComicBook/HarleyQuinn to the character roster) and a supposedly violent torture scene, along with a rather unpleasant premise, which might make for a good ''horror movie'' [[note]]Scarecrow has [[EnemyMine assembled Batman's Rogues]] to kill him once and for all, and criminals have completely overrun the entire city, forcing an evacuation that leaves the Bat-Family and the GCPD AloneWithThePsycho on a city-wide level[[/note]]. No doubt, however, uninformed parents will still buy it for young, easily-scared children, because it stars Batman and comics can't be ''that'' bad, right?

*** Then there's the playable Red Hood, who's primary gadget is always an instant kill, and who breaks his enemies necks to silently take them out. While the player could kill his enemies as Joker in Arkham Asylum, his kills were limited to one handgun shot and takedowns still had some humor value.

* ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'': This fighting game may have beautiful, anime-esque artwork and flashy graphics, but this game was clearly ''not'' meant for kids. The game is full of blood, full-frontal {{fanservice}}, morally gray characters, NightmareFuel, complex character stories, symbolism to religious beliefs, and stuffed to the brim with sexual innuendos. In fact, the first villain is a SatanicArchetype and one of the heroes is a nude CatGirl. This was also one of Capcom's darkest games until ''Resident Evil'' was developed. To be fair though, the "M" rating wasn't as strongly present when the game came out.

** This was compounded by the fact that Conker ''did'' star in the kid-friendly game ''Conker's Pocket Tales'' while ''Bad Fur Day'' was stuck in DevelopmentHell. During this time, he also made cameos in ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing'' and ''BanjoKazooie'', both of which are also kid-friendly games.

* The English download site for the pigeon-dating game ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'' gives it a G-rating. Keep in mind that this game has an ending where [[spoiler:you get ''decapitated'' by a psychotic doctor who regularly kills his bird patients and turns them into quill pens and turkey dinners]] and a lengthy BBL route that ''starts'' with [[spoiler:the bird characters finding the human protagonist's ''chopped-up remains'' all over the school]] and gets progressively more fucked up from there on.

* TalesOfSymphonia's art style does it no favours. Within the first fifteen minutes there's FantasticRacism and murder abound. Chibi doesn't get much more brutal!

* ''VideoGame/SealOnline'' is a massively multiplayer role-playing online game with cartoony graphics, cutesy characters, and light music that kids would think suitable, until when they see the [[KillerRabbit Rascal Rabbit]]. It is rated T for Teen according to ESRB in the United States (12+ and 18+ uncut in South Korea!) due to violence, alcohol references, suggestive characters, and such.
