Radar: Digimon Tamers
  • The three main characters & Sixth Ranger naked (Barbie Doll Anatomy was in full effect of course, but still) during their Fusion Dance with their respective Digimon.
  • The most explicit, not to mention heartbreaking, killing of a main character seen in a Digimon anime, all with an established All Deaths Final rule in place making a return of the killed off character impossible.
  • The teacher quite obviously had a hangover in one episode, but was just shown as inexplicably frustrated and rubbing her head. Then there was the clearly drunk man in the subway helped up by a cop, who instead ate a questionable ham sandwich.
  • When Jeri who has long since been Mind Raped past the Despair Event Horizon, tries to commit suicide by choking herself to death. We even see her hand squeezing her throat. You know, for kids!!
  • The first American broadcast of Digimon Tamers is best summed up with this trope. It got a lot of stuff that shouldn't have passed onto Fox Kids. It was "the season the censors were asleep". Tamers (and Shinzo, which had a lot of violence in it, too...) were the last two shows by Saban before Disney took it over; hence, a GaoGaiGar-like final blaze of glory was probably Saban's intent.
  • In episode eight, there is a scene with a man and a woman. The dialogue goes like this:
    Man: Um, I've been doing a lot of thinking... (places his hand on her lap)
    Woman: Ohh.
    Man: Oh, not that. Not about that!
  • There's also the scene from episode fourteen where Digimon are pulled into Juggernaut where they are mercilessly torn apart, their screams of agony causing one of the operators to have a near nervous breakdown. Need I remind tropers that this aired Saturday mornings alongside Power Rangers?
    • Would that be the season Power Rangers had death by Orifice Invasion? It would seem that the last season of Fox Kids and Saban as we knew them really did go all out.
  • From the first episode onwards, Renamon finishes off her (?) enemy by stabbing with hundreds of shiny things, and absorbing (eating!!!) the remains and Guilmon melts some real-life rats, to show us what it could do the kid right next to him.
  • The Japanese version had stuff passing the radar as well - it was aired by the morning, mind you, and couldn't exactly make sexual references at all. The "crap" in question was Ruki's grandmother talking to someone in a internet chat room. She types and reads, out-loud: "Don't say things like that. You know I'm too old for that. Ho ho ho."
  • The infamous episode thirty-four. Hint: It involves Leomon, Demon Lord and a clawed arm.
  • "Calumon zoom zoom! NO UNDERWEAR, ZOOM!"
  • In the final episode, Justimon asks Sakuyamon to lend him her strength so he can beat the D-Reaper. This would be alright if it didn't involve Sakuyamon blowing off her clothes and Justimon's sword swelling to twice its length. Good Lord, the only way it could have been more obvious was if someone had made a "why'd you take off your clothes for him?" comment.note 
    • Its worth pointing out again that, despite nudity being present almost constantly in the third act, no private parts are ever shown. In the scene described above, however, the skin-tight outfit Sakuyamon is left wearing afterwards leaves... extremely little to the imagination. Sure, you don't actually see anything, but that doesn't change the fact that her nipples are quite clearly accentuated.
  • In the original Ruki/Rika's mother was eighteen when she gave birth. The dub actually made it "worse", by aging Ruki up by two years, presumably without aging up her mom. This means according to the dub, she was around fifteen, when she had Rika. How did they get away with that one, is anyone's guess.
