I suspect a lot of these don't actually count as getting past the radar. The ESRB definition for a T rating states: "May contain violence, suggestive themes, crude humor, minimal blood, simulated gambling and/or infrequent use of strong language."

The first four games are rated T. So yeah, Potty Humor and the occasional "damn" or "badass" didn't get past the radar, they're why the radar gave it the rating they did. Curses cut short definitely don't count; the minced ones on the boxes might, since that's right out there in the store (same as the titles.) I'm not sure how strong they are on sex humor so I left most of that alone.

  • In the Crash Site, the Supernova Taxi man smokes a big, thick cigar.

What?

  • During the Battle of Red Rock Valley on Aridia:
Galactic Rangers: Go give those four-eyed scum-sacs a whooping!

Seriously, what? How are these "getting crap past the radar"? Is the cigar unusually phallic? Tobacco and alcohol aren't censored on the Sony Playstation. And I don't see anything possibly objectionable about the second quote.

Cigars can trigger the radar, but that one seems a wee bit too blatant to count for this trope. The second is just bad.

Remove both entries.

  • After rescuing Angela on Planet Greblin:
Angela: Here's my employee card. Ratchet: 20% off discount at Groovy Lube? Angela: Oh! Whoops! Wrong one! The Groovy Lube grand opening is also mentioned in the game's first cutscene.

Surely this is just a play on the American car repair company Jiffy Lube? the word "lube" doesn't primarily refer to sexual lubricant.
