* In the German version of the game, Gruntilda always speaks in rhymes just like in the English version. Interesting is the one instance where she ''doesn't'':
---> "Gruntilda bläst euch jetzt den Marsch,\\
ich versohle euch den Hintern!"[[labelnote:Literal English translation]]Gruntilda now hauls you over the coals, I will give you a caning![[/labelnote]]
The catch is that "Hintern" is "butt", but "Marsch" actually rhymes with a quite more vulgar word for the same thing.

* As well as Kazooie apparently "liking it rough", the entire game is basically the crap in ''GettingCrapPastTheRadar'', especially Kazooie.

** Grant Kirkhope, the composer of this game, said in an [[https://youtu.be/t70l-9n1rCQ?t=45m57s episode of Game Grumps]] that the girl actually did have massive breasts whenever it was in development, but Nintendo thought it was inappropriate.
---> '''Grant''': And, like, this woman comes by with...she had, like, a tray of cocktails, I think, something like that...and she had massive, y'know, boobs. And, erm, Nintendo didn't like that.

Rareware's iconic series is ostensibly a E-rated kids affair only, but its loaded with more than enough radar dodging innuendos and content to go around for the whole family.

* In Terrydactyland, when the Daddy T-Rex's roar is used to scare off the caveman, he states that he needs to change his loincloth. In order words, he seemingly defecated upon being roared at.

Not too bad by itself, but it's followed up when you win the Cheato page from the second race [TooMuchInformation when she begins to say where it's been [ before Kazooie cuts her off.]] [[{{Squick}} So where was that page, exactly?]]

Added DiffLines:

* The train in ''Tooie'' is named Chuffy. While "chuff" is a word pertaining to a sound that steam engines make, it is also slang for "vagina".

* Nintendo made sure to avert this trope at one point. They originally believed that the flower pots outside the chapel said "Fuck you" when you spit eggs into them, when it was really "Thank you" all along. Grant Kirkhope had to redo it several times to get Miyamoto to believe it was "Thank you."

* If you watch the opening of the first game, you'll notice that Kazooie isn't playing a kazoo. She's playing a horn. So, given the ThemeNaming, she should be called Hornie. The game should be called ''Banjo-Hornie''.

Added DiffLines:

** Lord Woo Fak Fak's name is also an example. According to WordOfGod, his name was inspired by Paul Machacek, who developed a reputation of SirSwearsALot in Rare due to his [[ClusterFBomb colorful vocabulary]], along with yelling "Woo!" whenever things go right.
