  • Wild World, New Leaf, and New Horizons contain an uncensored tanuki figurine. Did we mention tanuki are known for their enormous testicles?
  • In City Folk, one of the things Peppy villagers can say when it's raining is something along the lines of "Mr. and Mrs. Raincloud need to stop overachieving!"
  • Two animals might have a conversation that's sort of like this:
    Character 1: "Don't look, I've got a split in my pants!"
    Character 2: "You aren't wearing pants... so what split?"
    Character 1: "Um... gotta go!"

  • When you capture a stag beetle, the protagonist makes a pun about stag parties, another term for bachelor parties.
  • In some of the games you can obtain a statue of a naked mermaid, as well as the Mannekin Pis (statue of a peeing boy) and the Venus de Milo (statue of the Roman goddess of beauty, which happens to be topless). The stark-naked Michelangelo's David and a statue of Romulus and Remus breastfeeding join them in New Leaf.
    • A much more subtle example is A Bar at the Folies-Bergère. The fact that it takes place in a bar at all is pushing it pretty far for a game like Animal Crossing as it is, but people who know the artist Édouard Manet's work have concluded that the woman in the painting is meant to be a prostitute.
    • The 1.2 update for New Horizons brings back art and sculptures. And you have the option to examine the goods at Jolly Redd's Treasure Trawler to check for forgeries. So not only do we have nude statues (like Michelangelo's David or the Discobolus of Myron) and paintings (such as da Vinci's "Vitruvian Man", Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus", and Delacroix's "Liberty Leading the People"), but close-ups of high-resolution nude statues and paintings.

    • One painting available in the later games is The Clothed Maja, and the description given for it in New Horizons can very easily be taken as having some lewd implications.
      It is said that this painting is a more discreet version of an earlier work known as "The Nude Maja." It is also known that Francisco de Goya was quite popular in his own time. Could these facts be related?
  • Big Sister villagers may mention turf wars in other towns before they move there. They then mention that it's because slinging turf around sounds like fun.
  • One of the fortunes in New Leaf contains the line, "Sometimes a sword is just a sword. And sometimes it's a pretty girl." This gives you the Fi Mask.
  • The grumpy villagers in the GCN game would sometimes mention that "(They're) built for comfort and not for speed."
  • There is a magazine with the picture of a female mole in a yellow bikini on the cover lying around Resetti's headquarters. She has a little heart next to her making it even more obvious it's an adult magazine.

  • In New Leaf, on Halloween, the villagers in town will sometimes ask you questions. If you mess up on a question that a grumpy villager has asked you, this is how they sarcastically:
    "You really flubbed that one up, ffffff...lubber!"
  • The Pompompurin Rack and the Pompompurin Bed in Welcome Amiibo both have a visible anus on the backside.
  • In Happy Home Designer, a Peppy villager watching TV will question why a show she's watching is called "Pointed Love" before suddenly getting it, wearing a mischievous face. Similarly, a Lazy villager will say "So THAT'S where baby carrots come from!" while looking amazed.
  • Starting with Wild World, one of the shows you can see at night on TV involves a woman sneaking through a building, holding what is very clearly a gun. She gets into a firefight with someone, and then the building explodes. That’s awfully dark for such a sweet game.
  • In New Horizons, when you go to Harv's Island and enter his studio, one of the first things you see is a changing screen and...wait, is that a Casting Couch?

How well does it match the trope?
