* 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.

* This and NewMediaAreEvil helped ''VideoGames/RuleOfRose'' become [[BannedInChina banned in Italy, France, and Australia]]; and incited members of British Parliament to bully Creator/FiveZeroFiveGames into [[NoExportForYou canceling its UK release]]. The reasons given varied from more legitimate concerns like undertones of underage eroticism and harm to minors, to unfounded notions such as the player having to bury a child alive in the game.

* It's easy to mistake ''VideoGame/TinkerQuarry'' for a kid's game, with the colorful cast of LivingToys and all. But the game is officially rated T, for "dark themes", and boy, does it get dark! The protagonist has a tragic backstory apparently involving abusive, alcoholic parents, the Dollhouse is a CrapsaccharineWorld where many toys live in fear of being violently attacked at any moment, blood is shown onscreen (although stuffing and dismembered toys are much more common)... it's rated T for a reason.

** ''Persona 3''. The main characters regularly shoot themselves in the head with handguns. And one of them is a fourth grader. But the visuals in the beta version made the handguns look much more realistic. These were changed as Adults Only is not permitted on console games.

By the way, PEGI rated versions that don't have [[PlayableEpilogue The Answer]] 12 ([[UpdatedRerelease FES]] is rated 16). '''What idiot would give this game to a 12-year-old!?'''

* ''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 nearly 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. Didn't help that Darkstalkers characters are featured in Marvel vs Capcom, exposing a lot of younger players (which are interested because of the Marvel characters) to the ''MsFanservice''s.

* ''Rad Rodgers'' looks like a great platformer for kids about a kid gets sucked into a video game and meets a robot buddy. This must be for kids, yeah? Wrong! It has blood and profanity in it. [[MatureRating Rated M for a reason]].
