''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' is chock full of scenes or topics that you wouldn't expect a [[AnimationAgeGhetto cartoony]] albeit T-rated video game to cover. Here's a small sampling.

* The Meat Circus. Enough said!
** To piggyback on this, if you use Clairvoyance on any instance of Coach Oleander's hopping bunnies, [[spoiler:they see Raz as a horrifically bloodied butcher wielding a large knife.]]
* In Blackvelvetopia, if you use Clairvoyance on a woman who Raz has seduced with a rose, she will see him as a dashing young man. If you use it on one who ''hasn't'' been seduced, she instead sees him as ''a creepy smiling man wearing nothing but a trenchcoat, poised to rip it open.''
** In the memory reel that reveals [[spoiler:Dingo Inflagrante was in fact a male cheerleader who stole Edgar's girlfriend]], you can see in one of the frames Dingo [[spoiler:in a cheerleading pyramid]] looking right up Edgar's beloved's [[SkirtsAndLadders dress]].
* Several references to suicide, among them Clem, Crystal, and Gloria's mother.
* The [[TearJerker tragic deaths]] of Milla's orphans.
* A great deal of the G-Men's lines. Was the ESRB even ''listening'' to them?
* On Elton's facebook, it says that after his father died, he lived with his mother in a "special hotel for ladies only" and that "lots of sailors came to visit her". Remind you of anything?
* In Lungfishopolis, one of the propaganda broadcasts announces that the rebels have been having a wild night on the town with "inexpensive call girls".
* One of the wrestlers in Black Velvetopia mistakes you for Edgar Tegley and gives you a torrent of bullying abuse. Including the name "Smegley". Either Edgar is a Series/RedDwarf fan, or it means something much worse...
** Tegley, Smegley? I think it may have just been a really stupid nickname. Smegley's easier to say than, say, Smelly Tegley, or what have you.
* This is subtle, but Raz's parents, acrobats, have a lot of children. Makes you wonder.
** Um... Explain, please?
