Radar: Crash Bandicoot
Yes this was Tawna's original design, why this wasn't in the final E-rated game is beyond me...
  • The original game had Tawna, Crash's love interest, a tall female bandicoot with blonde hair, short shorts, and large breasts. And that's the bowdlerized version! Tawna's original design, modeled after Pamela Anderson but "with a brain" (according to Naughty Dog's artist), had even larger breasts and wore high heel shoes and a skimpy miniskirt. This form somehow made it into the scrapbook of Crash Team Racing.
  • The Trophy Girls in Crash Team Racing. Not only do they have noticeable chests, but they also come with Jiggle Physics... in an E-rated game!
    • There's also the 100% completion ending that says one of the trophy girls is posing for "Bandiboy" magazine, which may or may not be related to Playboy.
  • Crash Tag Team Racing. Ah, where to start? The final world is essentially an exercise in squeezing as many 'Uranus' jokes as possible out of one game. There are numerous euphemistic references to genitalia, including an obvious Double Entendre. The game also factors in N. Gin's blatant sadomasochism and Pasadena's masochism of a different variety - not to mention her not-so-subtle exhortations to Crash. And the rating? 7+.
  • In Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, Cortex says this after being defeated: "Maybe I should retire to a nice big beach, with a nice big drink, and a woman with nice big... bags of ice for my head." Complete with hand gestures.
    • One of the secret levels in Warped is named "Eggipus Rex", a pun on Oedipus.
  • Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back has a level named "Piston It Away".
  • Crash Twinsanity got away with a fair bit, mostly from Cortex. Coco eventually assaults him, at which he says, "My crystals!" (he was holding crystals). Another stage sees him masquerade as Coco, where he says, "It's true! Blondes do have more fun!". And of course, the cut-scene where they pass through Moulin Cortex...
    Cortex: Pardon me, ladies! Are those real?! {after an older-sounding woman screams at him} MOTHER?!
  • All of Cortex's dialogue at the end of Crash Of The Titans. Notable is calling Nina a "skank" and:
    "How long have you had that in your pants?"
    • Half the stuff Cortex says in that game, period. A notable example for how sheerly audacious it is, particularly given that he's talking to Coco specifically.
    Coco: "Cortex, why do you keep doing stuff like this?"
    Cortex: "Well, actually it's pretty fun. You should try it! You know, riding around in huge rumbling machines and whatnot? Veeery stimulating!"
    Crash (and the audience): *take* "Buh?"
    • There's also another instance of N. Gin having sadomasochistic tendencies. He thanks Cortex for spitting, then dumping hot tea on his face. And during his little two-persona rant, part of him admits he likes it when Cortex kicks him "in the tuchis and other very gentle spots".
  • Cortex and N. Gin's commentary on the credits of Crash Tag Team Racing has a few moments of this.
    • Not to mention N. Gin outright asking one of the women in the credits to touch him, "if she wants". And his rather unsettling Ho Yay obsession with one of the men, where they'll "go to the lake and braid each other's hair".
  • Take N.Brio's name, say it quickly, what does it sound like? He even alludes to this in Mind Over Mutant.
