Added DiffLines:

* A heavily downplayed set of examples compared to everything else on this page, but not only is Zim [[DrowningMySorrows obviously drunk]] during his VillainousBSOD in ''Enter The Florpus'', but the titular Florpus looks '''very''' vaginal in its overall design.

Added DiffLines:

* In "Bolognius Maximus", among the bathroom stall writings there are multiple instances of "Eat Meat".


* One of the most notable and hideous examples is the image of [[http://www.eeggs.com/items/42675.html Bloody GIR]], which Nickelodeon refused to publish. In response to this, the image has been [[WhosLaughingNow hidden within a single frame]] in several episodes. The easiest to spot being the one hidden in the intro of "[[http://chloemew4ever150.webs.com/anothersidetogir.htm Mortos Der Soul Stealer]]", which was also the only one Nick noticed (or thought young viewers would notice), since it's the only one removed from Creator/{{Nicktoons}} reruns.

* In Issue 2, Galaxy's Largest Space Donut is shortened to G'''LSD'''.
* Issue 5 (and undoubtedly many future issues) would have completely obliterated the radar had it been made an episode, namely in regards to [[spoiler: the more gruesome ways that Gaz kills Dib via virtual reality game world.]]
** [[ParentalBonus Some of the games referenced aren't exactly for kids.]] The second game referenced is ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac''. '''''[[BodyHorror THE BINDING]] [[AbusiveParents OF ISAAC.]]'''''
** Like the first issue (see below), this issue makes use of the word "turd", specifically in the game ''[[VideoGame/AngryBirds Angry Turds]]''.
* In Issue 8, the space pants' mother ship has...a ''very'' good reason why it's called a [[http://www.comicosity.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/INVADERZIM-8-MARKETING-4.jpg mother ship.]]
* The first issue of the comic uses the word "turd" multiple times, and a Issue 6 has a character using the phrase "Oh God no!" (but presumably in a DeadpanSnarker manner).
* Both Zim and Dib use variations of "Oh my God" in Issue 11. Zim says "Ohmigod" after seeing Dib have an allergic reaction, and Dib says "Oh... my God" upon witnessing the horde of animals Zim uses to try and destroy him.
* In the Issue 9 bonus pages, one of the activities is a "spot the difference" with one of the differences being an antenna sticking out of Gir's crotch. What really makes it is that Gir is lying down suggestively with hearts surrounding him.
* A ''lot'' of Issue 12 would not have made it on the show, particularly Emperor Zim having a chair made of ''hobo'' skin [[spoiler: Future Dib's corpse left hanging in the dungeon (albeit just his skeleton)]].
* In Issue 14, the word "bloatyshorts" seems pretty similar to the word "bootyshorts".
** One of the creatures Dib and Gaz hunt is "Crotchquatch", which is quite literally a monster made out human crotches.
* In Issue 21, when Gaz and Zim [[FreakyFridayFlip swap bodies]], we get this little gem:
-->'''Gaz (in Zim's body)''': Oh, this body is full of surprises.
* In Issue 23, Virooz's messenger program takes on the form of floating baby, which is implied to ''poop out'' the message, though this happens off-panel.
* Upon introducing himself to Zim at the end of Issue 24, Virooz states his intention to make Zim stop "sucking".
* In Issue 26, Zim calls the tunnels he's exploring a hell pit.
* The fact that there's a beverage called Poop Cola finally hits this point in Issue 30, when Dib tries to get some from Zim, getting his attention by pounding on his door and shouting, "Zim, I need your Poop!" That just sounds so very wrong...
* In Issue 40, one of the alternate universes viewed by Recap Kid is one where Zim is a superhero, aided by a HumongousMecha version of GIR. All he asks for in exchange for his protection of the city is the mayor allowing GIR to "dump his robot wasteload" on the mayor's front lawn. Cue GIR squatting over the ground, followed by the comic immediately cutting elsewhere.
** Also from Issue 40, we get this ending line once Recap Kid is returned to the comic universe:
-->'''Recap Kid''': How the floob am I going to recap ''this''?
* In Issue 41, Gaz calls Dib’s paranormal-related activities “cryptid-themed crap.”
** When Dib realizes his arms don’t work properly after he wakes up, he assumes Zim caused it, resulting in him saying this:
-->'''Dib''': Curse you, Zim. ''CURSE YOU TO [[{{Hell}} HADES]]!''

* In 'Tak the Hideous New Girl', Tak introduces herself to her classmates with sausages as Valentines Day gifts. This elicits the quotes "Yeah! Weiners!" and "Weiners roooock!". In the context of a Valentines Day episode, this is definitely pushing the limits of censorship as far as it can go.

** Zim threatens to send Dib to a dimension of "PURE DOOKIE"!!! We don't actually see the screen, but it emits a light that turns Dib and the whole room brown. Comic Issue 17 later confirms that "dookie" does indeed mean "manure", so this could be considered a rather literal application of the trope.

** When Zim asks his computer to analyze the time stasis core as to why it hasn't exploded, the computer explains that the explosion is co-bonded with the time stasis field, and as a result, the explosion is expanding really, really slowly, that it cannot be extinguished, and that it must expand to it's-''*cough, cough*''-inevitable size. Yes, you read that right. The writers managed to sneak in a joke about ''climaxing and orgasm'' in a ''kid's show''.
