* One infamous sequence in ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' has the batshit insane villain Albedo abducting Momo and subjecting her to MindRape to extract information he needs from her brain. Momo is seperated from the rest of the party an lured into a dark alley. Albedo knocks her out and takes her to a different location, where he makes a bizarre speech to her that's simultaneously threatening and overly affectionate. Finally, Albedo forces Momo to lay on the ground and extracts the information he needs. By the time Momo gives her final line of the scene, it's barely even subtextual.
-->"Get out of my body."

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': The names of [[MsFanservice Tifa's]] {{Limit Break}}s are highly suggestive. [[ADateWithRosiePalms "Beat Rush"]], "Meteordrive", "Dolphin Blow" and [[TheImmodestOrgasm "Final Heaven"]].


* Combine that with "ICantBelieveItsNotHeroin": In ''VideoGame/BrainDead13'', Lance gets fatally poisoned by an evil MushroomMan in the maze in one death scene. It could fall between these, GettingCrapPastTheRadar, and ''[[{{Pun}} Mushroom]]'' [[MushroomSamba Samba]].

* ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'' has [[TheVamp vampy]] [[EvilIsSexy villain]] [[MsFanservice Chalis]] telling the heroes about where they can find the MacGuffin they're looking for... with a rather blatant [[MaleGaze bust shot]] and the line, "[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Ah, so have I enticed you?]]"

** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5''. Excella trying to seduce Wesker, with her touching him and telling him that she "has her eyes set on something much... [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar bigger]]." Her eyes look down a bit too low on his body, and she eventually starts moving her hands from his chest to his... lower area. Nope, no {{Double Entendre}}s there.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[VideoGame/AmnesiaOtome Amnesia: Later]]'' gives the player an option to ask Kent and Ikki about a competition they had, where they went out to find beetles. Ikki explains that it started when they talked about each having found a huge beetle during their childhoods, arguing about [[BiggerIsBetterInBed whose beetle was actually larger]]. Kent says that his beetle was at least 8cms long by eyesight, while Ikki argues that his beetle was as big as his hand, only for the former to point out that the latter was a child at the time. Ikki retorts that he was in sixth grade, so he wasn't a small child anymore. It doesn't get any less innuendo-ridden from there.


* ''VideoGame/BravelyDefaultFlyingFairy'': One (rather infamous) side-quest revolves around a mysterious man who uses pheromones to render various women uninhibited and open to persuasion and then leads them back to his secluded lair, the women themselves turning up a day later, unable to remember anything that happened. [[RapeAsDrama Yeah.]] [[spoiler:It's never actually said that he does anything perverse, but he does use his various targets to worm his way into high society and high command, you have to let Edea (15 in Japan, 18 everywhere else) fall victim to him to stop him, and his dialogue's tone implies that more goes on than he says]].

* ''[[Videogame/{{Portal2}} Portal 2]]'': [[spoiler:After Wheatley takes over the Enrichment Center's mainframe, he makes orgasmic grunts and groans in response to Chell completing his test chambers. He then complains that he isn't really feeling it when the puzzles are solved too quickly and easily. [=GLaDOS=] later explains that the system rewards an A.I. with a euphoric reaction when a test is completed, but that the effect becomes less intense each time, causing withdrawal.]]

** Wheatley taking over Glados is disturbing as she informs Wheatley that it ''will'' hurt (but doesn't clarify on who it will hurt more), and her screams as she is dragged in by little claws are disturbingly rapey, with Wheatley coming out excited at his new power, and her exhaustion apparent. There are said to be some lines that Creator/StephenMerchant simply refused to read.

Added DiffLines:

** Also from ''Awakening'' is the history of Ylisse: In the not-too-distant past, Ylisse began a war that led the country to the brink of ruin. Afterwards, Ylisse replaced its full-scale military with a smaller force meant solely to protect the country, complete with a new name to reflect the fact. When another war does break out, Ylisse is forced to rely on assistance from a larger, more militant ally. In other words, much like the history of Japan since the second World War.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' ''2'': A doctor, [[spoiler:Serph Sheffield]], manipulates a two year old girl, [[spoiler:Serafira, or Sera]], into doing favors for him by acting kindly towards her and promising treats if she does better. She has no idea how much those favors, which require her to be naked, hurt her, and she thinks that she and the doctor love each other. Meanwhile, the doctor's coworker, [[spoiler:Heat O'Brien]], watches the manipulations in disgust. The doctor is using her PsychicPowers for inhumane experiments, not molesting her... hopefully.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MasterOfTheMonsterLair'': Shovel ''really'' likes it when Owen rubs him with olive oil.


* Done for dramatic and tragic effect in ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' a few times.
** In the first game, [[spoiler:Manfred von Karma]] was shot in the right shoulder [[spoiler:just before he murdered Gregory Edgeworth]]. In the second, [[spoiler:his daughter Franziska]] is shot in the right shoulder by [[spoiler:Shelly De Killer]]. By this point, [[spoiler:Franziska]] has gotten over her father, and has pretty much banished his name from the family for being a killer, so her being shot in the exactly the same way he was, right before he killed, is an extremely karmic moment.
** In the third game, Godot prosecutes a case where someone died from a poisoned cup of coffee. Later it's revealed that [[spoiler:he himself almost died, and was knocked into a coma, by this same method.]] The case is full of parallels, such as the fact the defendant is a young woman [[spoiler:just like Dahlia was]], and Godot's mention of how the defendant is a "classy lady" for using coffee to hide the bitterness of poison. It's also, tragically in a rather ironic way, the case where we first see something that came about due to Godot [[spoiler:being poisoned. Namely, that he he can't see red on a white background.]]
*** Speaking of which, that itself falls under this. Godot [[spoiler:is "blind" to red on a white background. Redd White was the man who killed Mia, a death that Godot was trying to hide from, blaming Phoenix when he should have "opened his eyes" and blamed the right person. In other words, his literal inability to see red on white, parallels his inability to see that Redd White was the only one to blame for Mia's death.]]
** This series is ''full'' of these, although a lot of them are inverted to the player and some are subverted due to being pointed out in game. They're always used for tragic effect.
*** An example of a subverted one is in case 3 of the first game. Jack Hammer, an actor, at first was thought to have been stabbed with a spear but [[spoiler:it turns out he died from being pushed of some stairs onto a spiked-fence. 5 years prior, the victim himself (allegedly accidentally) pushed a fellow actor from the same stairs and onto the same spiked fence while filming a scene, killing them. What makes this worse, is that the person who killed Hammer did so in self-defense, when Hammer himself went to get his revenge on them for his treatment after that accident he had caused. Thus it's more then likely that Hammer was accidentally killed in the exact same way and place that he accidentally killed someone himself, due to the fact that he had accidentally killed said previously mentioned someone.]]



* To make a point about perspective in ''VisualNovel/Ever17'', You (which is, incidentally, not a second-person pronoun, but a [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep nickname]] for the character's [[OverlyLongName incredibly long given name]]) has Kid try to put a pen back in its cap with one eye closed, leading to the above scene. This is made all the more amusing by the pair's UnresolvedSexualTension, along with You being a good three years older.
** To anyone listening to the conversation but not actually seeing what they're doing, it sounds exactly like a porn movie. You is probably aware of that.
** This trope is exactly what the authors were aiming for in that scene; the things those two say in that scene are right out of a hentai. Which is a bit ironic considering this is one of those visual novels without any actual H scene.
** In a different scene near the beginning of Kid/Coco's route, You attempts to make Kid laugh off his amnesia. If you refuse to do so, she'll resort to... sticking her finger up Sara's nose. Sara proceeds to moan sensually as "she and her senpai become one."



* ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'': Makes Shiki's [[spoiler:killing]] of Arcueid is somewhat... ''questionable''.
-->'''Arcueid:''' It was your first time and you were that skilled?
** Also, during the scene where he stalks her prior to this, he makes several references towards getting excited about "wanting to *** her", and the "long hard object in his pants". After a couple screens of this, it's mentioned that the blanked-out four-letter word is [[spoiler:kill]], and the object he's talking about is his [[spoiler:knife]]. Then after Arcueid has been [[spoiler:kill]]ed by Shiki, she chases him down to "make him take responsibility" for his actions.


* The University expansion pack for the PC version of ''TheSims 2'' introduced new objects such as a bubble blower and a juice keg. Although the bubble blower does make actual bubbles, the fact that it's shaped exactly like a hookah and that it literally makes your Sims float in the air when they use it makes it pretty obvious what the creators had in mind. As for the juice keg... that one speaks for itself.
