I don't make the rules, just enforce them with an iron fist.

- Uses acetates to show that Buffy has to kill the demons responsible.
- Waves loose fist up and down.
- Looks at Buffy quizzically.
- Picks up a stake and makes the same motion, with a slightly sheepish look on her face.''

- When the Monster of the Week crash-lands on Earth in Episode 4, it does so near a car with two teenagers making out. The girl actually says "Oh my! You just rocked my world!" exactly when the explosion happens.
- In episode 15 Titan literally slices the dragon monster into chunks. No blood or anything, but it's still a living creature being hacked to death. We sure have come a long way from the nonstop robots of Samurai Jack.
- Episode 19: In the second motel that Lance and Ilana stay in, not only does Ilana sit and watch the news while wearing only a towel for an extended period of time, but the room only appears to have one bed...
- Reasons: Idea of radar based on TV Y7 (FV) standards, when the show is rated TV PG (which, it's worth remembering, is the rating stuff like Gilmore Girls, Smallville, and Naruto get. Assuming that the radar scans for everything and anything that could be given a salacious interpretation, particularly when there are also more obvious, more innocuous ways they could be interpreted.
- In the episode "Breach", when Rex started destroying everything around him to cause Breach to create portals so that he could try to escape, all while Breach is throwing out the junk into different parts of the world, a portal appeared right over some Evo scorpions that Six and Bobo were fighting, dropping some junk and squishing the bugs. What came next was white goop (ice cream) covering both Six and Bobo. Bobo comments, "I'm not complaining." Really?
- In "Nightfall" the Mayor had an actual SHOTGUN and planned to use it. Hunter Cain oviously intended to KILL everything and everyone in Abuela's house. It was overall a very dark episode.
- Reasons: See Sym-Bionic Titan. Looking at the page, however, I notice that most of the "OMG! People got KILLED" stuff isn't in these any more, so somebody's keeping watch on the page.
- "Same As It Never Was", the entire episode, it was grim and grittier, characters are heavily implied to have died, and the biggest Crap Passing moments? The Turtles of that dimension are killed, with their corpses completely on screen, Shredder dying via laser drill to the face, and Karai being bazooka'd, this episode is the least child friendly in the series, and makes you wonder how "Insane In The Membrane" got rejected, even with all the frightening imagery in that episode, "Same As It Never Was" evokes High Octane Nightmare Fuel to absolutely insane effects.
- In New World Order, the Tengu Shredder easily defeats Karai for bearing the Shredder mantle, and then uses his power to hold her in place, whist remarking; "Such a coarse young woman, I wonder if someone more well mannered lurks beneath that rough exterior?"- before proceeding to use his powers to strip Karai of her armour leaving only her form-fitting bodysuit left. Upon observing this, he then states; "Perhaps I should let you live after all. You would make a fine slave". For bonus Squicky points, the Tengu Shredder's face looks exactly like Ch'rell's human form (due to Ch'rell basing his own Oroku Saki persona on the original), meaning that Karai has someone who looks exactly like an undead version of her (adopted) father, lusting after her and planning to make her his personal slave.
- There's a 50/50 chance Mikey's line about how "there's all sorts of crazy stuff on the internet!" from Back to the Sewer is this.
- When Casey proposes to April in The Engagement Ring, he uses a hockey analogy, and accidentally states that he wants to "play her for the rest of his life", before realising just what he said.
- Reasons: Plot-critical stuff used as examples. Salacious readings of innocuous lines.
- It is not used as an expletive, but Xanatos says in "Awakening, Part Two," "Pay a man enough, and he'll walk barefoot into Hell." The line was edited out when the episode was put into VHS release, but the DVD version has the line uncut and uncensored.
- Also the episode when Demona turned everyone in the city to stone and walked around smashing the statues to bits.
- In a flashback scene of Bad Guys, young Dingo flat-out (albeit jokingly) asks John Oldcastle if he is a child molester. But then, the comics are pretty violent as it is.
- Reasons: Greg Weisman has repeatedly stated how it worked with S&P to get those things on the air.

- As a starter thing, these forms of media don't require a page in any sense given there's no radar to subvert so they can be cut straight away.
- Real Life
- Card Games: Not an actual example among them besides the minor faff with the Yu-Gi-Oh! harpy cards and that's more about self-censorship, not being censored by an outside group. The rest are clearly aimed at an adult audience anyway.
- Comic Books: Lots of Heh Heh, You Said X, innuendo, examples for comics aimed at adults and some really bad ones which pretty much happen to be down to the troper's perverse mind. Lots of natter too, nice way of flagging a bad example when scanning. Same goes for the awkward Newspaper Comics subsection which is a little confusing to some given it has a page linking to three rather stubby example pages and nothing else, a few examples scattered in Comic Books and a folder on the trope page itself.
- Film: A lot of R-rated films, mainly because people seem to figure being subtle or indirect about something obviously must be to appease a censor. Others are tame double entendres in PG films.
- Live Action TV: It's probably most telling that Babylon5, a show with pretty deep adult themes, has a page of its own. Otherwise, it's the usual set of PG-13+ shows with less of a radar than they think and Unfortunate Implications which only exist within the mind of the sicko who added it and clearly not the guy following up going "huh?".
- Video Games: A bizarre array of perverts and closeted childhoods, quite a few "do you see that, it looks like a/an/some X doesn't it?" examples which are the worst ones to use.
- Western Animation: Ugh, one thing that can be said, this and every subsection under it is 70% bad example, 15% adult aimed and the remainder the perversions of the writers. Cull it all, makes Fetish Fuel seem sane.
