''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.

* [[CircusOfFear The]] [[BodyHorror Meat]] [[AbusiveParents Circus]]. [[NightmareFuel 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. Some are played for comedy, like Clem and Crystal, while others are portrayed with [[AdultFear a disturbing amount of realism]].
** Heck, one of the vaults actually depicts [[spoiler:Gloria's mother jumping from a building]] in a picture.
* The [[TearJerker tragic deaths]] of [[spoiler:Milla's orphans]].
* A great deal of the G-Men's lines. Was the ESRB even ''listening'' to them?
** "[[ConstructionCatcalls Look at that woman's breasts. They are large]].
** "Over time, my husband will enjoy me less sexually, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny but he will always enjoy my pies]]."
* 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".
** Stepping on any lungfish causes them to squash into a bloody mess. [[RefugeInAudacity Which Raz can wipe off if you wait for his idle animation]].
* Then there's that joke about a [[DoubleEntendre squirrel's nuts]]...
* Here's a weird one: among the nonsense Boyd will [[MadLibsDialogue randomly spew out]] during his ramblings, one of them is "[Subject A] [[SexualExtortion got into bed with]] [Subject B]". This in and of itself isn't too bad for a T rated game, but due to the random nature of his dialogue, the two subjects used in that sentence can result in statements that are... well, ''bizarre''. Some of these include: [[BestialityIsDepraved "My first cat, Seymor", "All those stupid crows"]], [[ReallyGetsAround "The entire dairy industry"]], [[ExtremeOmnisexual "My hooch"]], and [[MindScrew "The last specimen of the super virus."]]
