[up]x6 I've wondered why a lot of the TRS issues are with widely-used tropes. You may want to check which ones will need TRS, if. But that is outside the scope of this thread.

[up] And could you clarify what "Acceptable given the age ratings" means?

I'm going to restrict myself to English-language ratings, because I don't know if other-language dubs may have bowdlerised Case Closed in some way.

  • Australia: M
  • Canada:
    • Netflix: 13+
    • TV: 14+
    • Manitoba (DVD): PG
  • New Zealand: PG
  • UK: 12
  • USA: Mostly TV-PG, some TV-14

(Source: IMDB)

In Japan it was rated G, but we know Japanese censors tend to be more lenient about sex jokes.

By "Acceptable given the age ratings", I mean that the content cited in the example is permitted under the criteria for the age rating assigned. For example, the American TV-PG rating allows the show to make the kind of mild sexual references of which the examples primarily consist, and so those examples did not get past the American TV radar.

Just a question: what should we do if a show is listed as having multiple different content ratings in the same region, with no context given for this?

I’m planning on going through Radar.Western Animation, as for it has the most Radar/ subpages out of any medium. The first page listed on there is Radar.Two Stupid Dogs, and I decided to check IMDb to see what it was rated. While the show’s main IMDb page says that it’s rated TV-Y, the certifications page lists it as TV-Y, TV-G, and TV-Y7 in the US for some reason. While I’m leaning towards TV-Y or TV-G being the general US rating (since Argentina, Canada, and the UK all gave it their own lowest content ratings), how can I check to make sure?

Doing a check on Radar/Splatoon. This also covers Splatoon 2. Rating systems:

PEGI: 7

ESRB: E10+

CERO: A

Singapore's rating system: 6

ACB: PG

Germany rating system: PG

Splatoon

  • There are multiple times where ink is used as a stand-in for blood. Notable examples being the inklings exploding into splats of opposing ink when splatted, as well as Octarian bosses gushing out fountains of ink when their tentacles are destroyed. Considering how the game doesn't ever use red ink, I don't think it's valid. Also I'm pretty sure blood can be shown in E10+ games if discreet.
  • When discussing Walleye Warehouse, sometimes you get this exchange;
    Callie: Over in a quiet corner of the warehouse, two young Inklings are about to meet their destin-
    Marie: BATTLING! They're battling, aren't they?! What? Not a valid example, she's clearly saying destiny
    • It's even more blatant in the European localization:
      Callie: Off in a remote corner of the warehouse, two young Inklings are...
      Marie: BATTLING! Again, not an example
  • Some of the Splatfest announcements (particularly the American ones) can get a little suggestive. Marie referring to hot dogs as "cylinders of meat" might have been accidental, but there's nothing ambiguous about her response when Callie makes a reference to "plundering booty" while introducing Pirates vs. Ninjas.note  It didn't get censored at all and the whole exchange is lampshaded so I'm gonna say valid.
    Marie: Whoa there, Callie. Let's keep it E for Everyone.
  • The Japanese name of the Octobrush is the "Hokusai", named after Ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai. One of Hokusai's best-known paintings, and the one most strongly connected to cephalopods, is "The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife" which is known for...being rather erotic. While he did do erotica, he also did other famous paintings, and I don't know if kids would have known who he is. At best this is a Parental Bonus.
  • The title of "Ink Me Up" can be read as suggestive. Accidental Innuendo
    • The original Japanese title of the song more or less so: "Kimi-iro ni somete" translates to "Dye me with your color." No
  • While Captain Cuddlefish's line about not producing as much ink as he used to is Fridge Brilliance, it may remind others of.... A different kind of problem. Innuendo
  • This rather memetic yet questionable line from Marie is eyebrow-raising to many. This is only considered weird because of a 4chan post. Sweaty armpits is not GTCPTR.

Splatoon 2

  • Possibly unintentional, but Flow, the owner of the hat shop, in her introduction is considered by the squids to be their "crazy old aunt". While that in itself is innocent, it's pretty common to assign older people somebody has a close or caring relationship with as "aunt" or "uncle", that would still make her "aunt flow", a metaphor for a woman's menstrual cycle. It says it could be unintentional so Accidental Innuendo it is.
  • Marina’s reasoning for why she would choose invisibility over flight includes the line, "With invisibility, you could spy on people while they’re... inking their Splat Zone." This particular one also doubles as Ho Yay. Not sure on this one. It could count but could also be DIH
  • During the Japan-only "Flower vs Dumpling" Splatfest, Marina tells Pearl "Senpai will be in charge of flowers and I'll be in charge of things that you stuff into yourself!". Pearl lampshades the entendre. It can't be accidental innuendo if it's lampshaded. That said, it's just simple innuendo which is fine in Japan
  • One of the chat logs in Octo Expansion has Pearl threatening that if anyone tries to harm Marina, she'll "cut a fish!" Using other words as swearing is not a valid example
  • Another chat log from Octo Expansion has Pearl mention a song she wrote before Off the Hook called "#$@%* Dudes Be #$@%* Sleepin'", which the stations refused to play "for obvious reasons". If you listen carefully to the demo's sound file in the log, you can hear a prolonged Sound-Effect Bleep. Not sure here, does using symbol swearing count as a valid example if the game outright mentions that it's rude?
  • The outfits you get for scanning the Pearl and Marina amiibos are the same outfits they wear in Octo Expansion, which are references to The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac respectively. Because of course their music is kid friendly. Kid friendly games and media can reference works for adults, not valid
  • Splatoon 2 manages to slip in a Panty Shot joke by sticking a panties-shaped decal on the underside of the Octostamp DX. Unless you're a serious prude I don't think underwear is inappropriate for an E10+ rated game. It doesn't even look like typical underwear a girl wears, it more looks like ones for boys
  • During the bonus track from ''Octotune'' (at the 0:39 mark, to be precise), Pearl clearly seems to exclaim "shit". Considering the game is in a made-up language by Inklings/Octolings, this isn't valid.

Is everyone agreeing to cut this page? Seems like there's only three examples at best.

I’m planning on going through Radar.Western Animation, as for it has the most Radar/ subpages out of any medium. The first page listed on there is Radar.Two Stupid Dogs, and I decided to check IM Db to see what it was rated. While the show’s main IM Db page says that it’s rated TV-Y, the certifications page lists it as TV-Y, TV-G, and TV-Y7 in the US for some reason. While I’m leaning towards TV-Y or TV-G being the general US rating (since Argentina, Canada, and the UK all gave it their own lowest content ratings), how can I check to make sure?

My rule of thumb is to act as if every episode has the highest rating listed so as to err on the side of caution. If you have some source of which exact rating each episode got, use that.


Regarding Splatoon:

* Some of the Splatfest announcements (particularly the American ones) can get a little suggestive. Marie referring to hot dogs as "cylinders of meat" might have been accidental, but there's nothing ambiguous about her response when Callie makes a reference to "plundering booty" while introducing Pirates vs. Ninjas.note 
Marie: Whoa there, Callie. Let's keep it E for Everyone.

This is just Think of the Censors!. They don't actually say any bad words, and as the note says, booty refers to pirate loot. Even so, the ESRB rating is E10+, which does allow for mild innuendo.

* Marina’s reasoning for why she would choose invisibility over flight includes the line, "With invisibility, you could spy on people while they’re... inking their Splat Zone." This particular one also doubles as Ho Yay.

You're right, it's DIH.

* Another chat log from Octo Expansion has Pearl mention a song she wrote before Off the Hook called "#$@%* Dudes Be #$@%* Sleepin'", which the stations refused to play "for obvious reasons". If you listen carefully to the demo's sound file in the log, you can hear a prolonged Sound-Effect Bleep.

Symbol Swearing is acceptable, since no cursing is actually in the game.

[up] So I guess there isn't any examples on that page then. Thanks for correcting me.

Doing Pokémon right now. This is going to be a big one, because there's so much misuse here.

ESRB: E

PEGI: 3 for the 2D Games, 7 for the 3D Games.

CERO: A

ACB: G/PG

Games/General

Generation I (Red/Blue/Yellow) and remakes

  • The entire Nugget Bridge sequence in the Japanese version is full of Double Entendres — for example, the location itself is referred to the Golden Ball Bridge in plain English. Not helping is that every single trainer (even the Lasses!) gets in a phrase or two that can easily double as something an employee in The World's Oldest Profession might say. Innuendo
  • A Lass will say "Eek! Did you touch me?" before battling you. Innuendo
  • "This gym is great! It's full of women!" Said by an elderly man standing right outside Celadon Gym. This was finally bowdlerised to "strong trainers!" when you return to Kanto in HGSS. Seems to be valid, it was only caught in Gen 4, months after the game. The re-release was also used from an emulator and was kept entirely the same as the original.
    • One of the trainers in said Gym point-blank asks you if you're The Peeping Tom. This one probably isn't though
  • One of the buildings in Celadon City is the Celadon Hotel, which seems to have no functional purpose in the games, as it contains no trainers and you can't find any items or Pokémon there. (There is a code for the PC in a tile, but this is presumably an oversight) The Hotel seems to only exists for one reason, so that the woman at the counter can tell you that they're full, and to listen to the dialogue of three of the guests: A woman, her boyfriend, and her younger brother. While the brother and sister both seem excited about the vacation, the boyfriend's only comment is "why did she bring her brother?" One wonders what he would have expected to be doing on vacation with his girlfriend at that hotel, before bringing her brother with them. I don't get this one, but it seems to be mild innuendo and therefore isn't valid
  • In FireRed/LeafGreen, there's a female swimmer on Three Island who tells you that her swimsuit is broken, so she can't leave the water... Innuendo
  • FireRed and LeafGreen; A Picnicker in Rock Tunnel tells you, "Ew! Don't try anything funny in the dark!". Because of that one "Ew", it seems she's under the impression that the player is some kind of Dirty Kid. Amusingly enough, due to the dialogue being unaltered, this line even appears when playing as Leaf. Not valid
  • In Yellow, Lt. Surge comments that the player must have "big and brassy nerves" to take him on. Note that there's a line break before "nerves", making it seem even more like a Last-Second Word Swap. No
  • In Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee, a female swimmer says her boyfriend gave her "big pearls". Innuendo again

Generation II (Gold/Silver/Crystal) and remakes

Generation III (Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald) and remakes

  • The little girl outside the Seashore House invites you in with a little poem that starts off with a line that includes the phrase "hot-to-trot." Hot-to-trot is a mildly rude phrase for being ready or eager to do something, or, a little more commonly, sexually excited. Using Google's dictionary it doesn't mention being sexually excited. Accidental Innuendo
  • In the ORAS Space Museum, a girl gazing at the model rocket says "This rocket! Thick!" Innuendo
    • This is a Brick Joke from X & Y, when a Maid from Hotel Richissime says, "This pillar...It's so thick!" Innuendo
  • Another from ORAS: In Prof Cozmo's father's room in Sea Mauville, a magazine found underneath a bed with chewed-up sheets (!?) reads, "The Fame and the Shame! Champions Exposed!" In Japanese, it just plainly states it's "magazines of pretty girls". Subtle. Japan doesn't really care about sexual content as much as us, so Values Dissonance
  • In ORAS's Rustboro City school, there is a middle-aged man that hastily tells you that he is not a "weird man" hanging around in a children's school. Valid
  • In the Sea Mauville sidequest in ORAS, there's a locked room with two girls. One of them, who hands you a key you need to continue, claims she's teaching the other girl how to be a trainer, and is incredulous that you managed to unlock the door. The other girl's only "dialogue" is to blush. Lesbians aren't GCPTR
  • In the Spanish version of Alpha Sapphire, a Team Aqua grunt in the Aqua Hideout's room full of beds will tell you, "Here everyone does whatever they feel like in their bed... That's why the odor of some beds speaks for itself..." DIH
  • And yet another one from ORAS; while Courtney's dialogue is already rather...suspicious in English, the Japanese original didn't make any attempt at subtlety. The sheer sexual-ness of her character generated quite some buzz and giggles on Japanese Twitter, and also inspired an Internet hentai doujinshi that has been moderately circulated. Her Pokémon Generations portrayal really doesn't help either. The fact that the player is 12 also makes this rather disturbing. No
  • After completing the Delta Episode in Alpha Sapphire, Archie and Matt start crying and apologizing to each other. Shelly simply says "Look at these two with their faces wet with tears! ...Well, I suppose it could be worse..." Certainly not an example
  • Another instance of Swimmer innuendo occurs on Route 131, where a female Swimmer complains about why guys always stare at her in her swimsuit. However it's implied she thinks they like the swimsuit itself, but her post-battle dialogue has her realize, "Maybe it's not my swimsuit they're looking at. Maybe I'm just that beautiful!" Innuendo
  • A man in Mauville's Crooners Cafe (who can teach Meloetta its Secret Art Relic Song) tells the character that the move academy he works for has no students, which is why he's at the cafe "drinking a lot of...Fresh Water". Last-Second Word Swap
  • A Hiker in the Game Freak offices has this to say.note 
    The girl Tubers are cute, hey? To battle against a cute Tuber...Whoop! It drives me wild! And the Twins! Aren't they cute? A two-on-two battle with Twins...Whoop! It's unbearably fun! This entry just creeps me out, can we not?

Generation IV (Diamond/Pearl/Platinum)

  • There's a sign near a bed in Team Galactic's hideout that says "Please make sure the bed is unoccupied before getting into it." One has to wonder what sort of crazy faux-pas made that sign necessary. It maybe simple in that someone sat on a person who was trying to sleep, but it might be... a bit more naughty than that. Accidental Innuendo
  • Male Bidoof's gender difference appears to be two extra puffs on the underside of its tail. Real life male rodents have large and prominent testicles. You're looking at Bidoof's 'nads. Parental Bonus
  • In Diamond and Pearl only, Flint of the Elite Four, despite being a Fire-type specialist, only has 2 Fire-type Pokémon out of the 5 total Pokémon on his team. One of his non-Fire Pokémon happens to be Lopunny. When looking for a reason as to how it fits him as a Fire-type specialist, the safest bet is due to its fluffy fur being warm. However, considering Lopunny's feminine figure and its rather coquettish cry, it's easy to interpret the reason as him finding it hot.note  Someone looking way too deep into things
  • In Platinum, after taking the 5-Maid Knockout Exact-Turn Attack Challenge in the Pokémon Mansion, Rich Boy Liam gives us this gem: "Oh, I'll ask you not to pry into what I'm doing in the back of the mansion. This knowing wink is all you'll get out of me." Innuendo

Generation V (Black/White and Black 2/White 2)

  • One episode of "Moves For Living" focuses on the move Low Sweep. "Moves For Living" is a show that details the effects of one move and then provides a practical use for it in every-day life. Fair enough, but this installment claims that women with short skirts can use the move to kick someone in a public situation without embarrassing themselves. CERO is pretty strong on Panty Shots in kids games such as in Smash Bros, so it depends on what it says in Japan, but until we know that, it's certainly not valid
  • One of the people you battle on the Battle Subway, a Lass, has dialogue that's riddled with this in the Japanese version. Her starting dialogue is "Be gentle! It's my first time...!", her winning dialogue is "Ooh, I won...um, were you...Were you going easy on me?", and her losing one is "Aaah! It huuurts! But...ooh, you're just so good..." Innuendo
    • The lines are very similar in the English version. The exact choices of words in the translation are slightly different from above, but the overall intent and implications remain. Innuendo
  • In Castelia City, there is an alley where a shady man will jump out at you and Flash you — Well, in truth he gives you the TM for Flash. He's still doing it in Black 2 and White 2. Innuendo
  • Black and White also have a rather infamous Ferris Wheel conversation route only accessible when playing as the male character, which basically amounts to one long, drawn-out, rather uncomfortable gay joke. It takes a huge turn for the creepy when you realize the man is a Hiker, a middle aged trainer class, and Hilbert, while older than previous protagonists at the time, is only around his mid-teens. Not valid example
  • Similar to the Island Three Swimmer in FRLG, there's Swimmer Caroline in Route 17 who can't leave the water as her swimsuit broke. Another innuendo
  • At one of the Castelia City buildings in Black and White, a girl says "My boyfriend isn't good at getting out of bed in the morning". Another innuendo, I'm starting to get tired at how many of these there are
  • In B2W2, Ferris Wheel dialogue remains unchanged, unlike BW. Still not valid
    • They did remove the reference to the nursery aide actually being male, however. That implies something did get past the radar so no
  • In B2W2, one of the football players who you can battle in the Big Stadium on Wednesdays and Saturdays, if you challenge him in the main story, he asks if you think he's all sweaty. But then, in the post-game after you've beaten the Champion, he asks if you think he's fat, which he denies, even after you beat him and he gives you a Protein. References to being fat is not GCPTR
  • In B2W2, one of the baseball players says "What I brag about is my bat." Accidental Innuendo

Generation VI (X/Y)

  • In a street in Lumiose City, there's a pair of NPCs who use the standard "lovers" models, holding hands and staring at the Prism Tower. If you pass by them, you overhear their conversation: "You know, my Emolga really wants to shock your Dedenne..." The other NPC's reaction is a confused, "...what?" DIH
  • You can work part-time for the Hotel Richissime, cleaning out the rooms. Sometimes, you can find beds that have apparently been drenched in perfume. No
    • Some of the other beds are covered in Pokémon dander. This could be taken as the occupants just letting their Pokémon sit on their beds, but the more dirty-minded will probably think of something else. This even outright says that the likely-hood is just people being really disturbing, hell no
      • ...or the trainers just let two of their Pokemon have the bed for a while. Delete
  • You can also work behind the counter, taking room service orders. One occupant sounds a little flustered when they first start talking, and once they're done, they say "I'll go get showered and be ready for you!" Once they get their meal, however, they say that they just wanted to feel refreshed before eating. No
  • One of the maids in Hotel Richissme is describing something that is "thick" and "big". It was a pillar. Mentioned before, not valid example due to being innuendo
  • "How do you like it, long or short?" He's talking about focal length in photography. Accidental Innuendo
    • One of your responses can be a confused "What?" as a possible Lampshade Hanging on your Double Entendre, and his response to "long" is rather suggestive. This is made even worse by the fact that he doesn't explain what he actually means unless you ask him. Not a valid example
  • A female Swimmer raises the question of where she's keeping her Poké Balls, if all she has is a bikini — her answer? "Women's secret!" DIH
  • Upon defeat, one Youngster trainer in the Battle Maison will exclaim "Aww sh...shucks!". Curse Cut Short
  • A French Maid in the Battle Maison (though much less revealing than the usual examples of this trope) says before battle, "You know I am very popular because of this costume of mine." Considering it mentions how it's much less revealing this just isn't a flat out example
  • In the Japanese version, one of the punks you can fight in Lumiose City is named "Merde", which is an almost literal example, as it's French for shit. This only got past the radar in Japan: he was renamed Faust in the English version. Although, since the name Faust is sometimes associated with The Devil, this arguably isn't much better. For most countries this isn't an example, though for Japan it could possibly stay with some rewording
  • Some Pokémon (like Pikachu and Floatzel) have their least favorite places to be touched in Pokémon-Amie as the crotch area. Even worse, for some Pokémon (such as Raticate and Machoke), it's their favorite place. Similarly, Jynx has no problem with being touched on her breasts. Video Game Perversity Potential
  • Near the Juice Shoppe in Lumiose City, a female NPC will comment on how the juice from there vitalizes humans in tandem with Pokémon. Her example? The previous night, her husband was frolicking like he was a teenager again. Um... Innuendo
  • One Beauty whose text in English translation is "Yes a mere half a year ago I was a Black Belt! Quite the transformation wouldn't you say?" In the original Japanese she says, " I was a Karate King just half a year ago; the power of medical science is awesome, wouldn't you say?" While the English version (arguably) writes around it, it's pretty clear in the Japanese that the Beauty is a post-op trans woman. Trans characters aren't usually in Nintendo games, and if they are they're usually censored but I'm not sure if this is an example
  • Following the emotionally charged fireworks scene with Shauna on the balcony of Parfum Palace, the butler gives the player character the TM for Protect. Innuendo

Generation VII (Sun/Moon and Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon)

  • When proceeding to the Aether Foundation for the first time, employees note that they are conserving Corsola because Toxapex is preying on them and "leaving a trail of Corsola remains on the sea floor". Animals eat other animals, this isn't an example
  • Some of the dex entries pertaining to Mega Evolved forms of Pokémon imply or state that the Pokémon have become more cruel, vicious or bloodthirsty as a result of Mega Evolution. Not even Mega Kangaskhan's child is safe! Some of these could count but not in how it's written, Mega Salamence's Dex Entry outright mentions that it cuts people in half with its wings which is a bit graphic for an E rated game
  • Very early on, when you and Lillie walk to Kukui's house, you hear a loud clatter which rocks the outside of the house, and once inside he explains that he was letting Rockruff test its moves on him. However, the really eyebrow-raising part is when Kukui goads the Rockruff into it by yelling, "My body is ready!" It's referencing Reggie-Fils Aime, not beastiality, not an example
  • Bewear is feared all across Alola because of its sheer strength, to the point that there are warning signs about it. Its Moon dex entry is downright terrifying, especially because unlike other entries, it invokes Never Say "Die". Closer to Nightmare Fuel, and the franchise has genocidal villains in it
  • The first time you meet Hapu, she threatens to attack a pair of Team Skull grunts with her Mudsdale, even mentioning that the results would be "messy". And she says this after you defeat the grunts, so she's probably not talking about Pokémon battling. Considering most scenes of Team Skull are quite goofy until Po Town, this could be a case of Crosses the Line Twice. DIH
  • The guy in the house on Route 2, Guzma's father, very strongly implies that he used to beat his son until his son one day fought back and returned the beating. The fact that the house has a bag full of bent and broken golf clubs makes it even worse. No, Sun and Moon has Abusive Parents causing conflict as the main story of the game
  • While Sun and Moon do carry on the franchise tradition of having a female Swimmer lampshade the lack of convenient places to carry her Pokéballs, Shelby's defeat quote takes the gag to a new level. Why is it tough to retrieve them, and where is she storing them that they become so awkward to access? It certainly doesn't help that her quote is juxtaposed with her rather saucy pose and expression, and that her intro quote is about how her Pokémon like her swimsuit too. DIH
    • Even worse, this extends to the male swimmers in Alola, as well. There's one in Hano Beach who, in response to the question of where he puts his Pokéballs, says: "That's the mystery of swimmers, isn't it?" Let's just hope it's Hammerspace. DIH again
  • A random Hiker on Akala Island asks you what you think about "the size of [his] area" before challenging you to a battle. He never clarifies what he means... while also stating in dialogue after the battle that "since [his] area is large, [his] volume must be large as well". Double Entendre
  • Tsareena, the new Fruit Pokémon. At first glance, her design is just a clever nod to mangosteens being "The Queen of Fruits". But look at her more closely: she has a dominant personality, looks like she's wearing thigh-high boots, tends to kick or stomp to attack (in fact, she only evolves from a Steenee that knows the move Stomp), and is exclusively female. For the more savvy players, these traits invoke an archetype that really, really shouldn't appear in a kid's game. Parental Bonus, kids wouldn't get it
    • Not obvious enough? In Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, she can learn Power Whip and Punishment. Still no
    • In the anime, she steps on Kiawe outright. Still no
  • Salazzle's Dex Entry in Sun outright mentions that it likes to keep a reverse harem of male Salandit around it, while the official website states Salandit's pheromones attract both male Pokémon and humans.
  • Lilligant's new dex entry mentions that once they successfully find a male partner, their flower will droop and wither away. As in, she's been deflowered. Innuendo and Stealth Pun
  • Beauty Carolyn at the Battle Buffet offers to "feed you" if you defeat her (several ways that can be interpreted, and most fit the Radar Trope). No, most of those do not fit the Radar Trope. At least not in its new definition
  • A couple of Beauties are fawning over a Machamp in Hano Grand Resort, bordering on harassment. The Machamp turns out to be a man who donned a Machamp costume specifically because he wanted the attention. He'll also give you TM45 Attract. People finding something attractive is not GCPTR
  • You can stop by Kiawe's house in Paniola Town, where you'll find a number of Magmar. Talking to one of the Magmar upstairs causes it to produce a Quick Ball that's described as nice and warm from..."somewhere". No other description to where the ball came from is given. Innuendo
  • After the player saves Lillie from an Alolan Exeggutor, she comments that the Exeggutor has grown "a bit more vigorously than I'd prefer!" This is followed by several seconds of Lillie looking shocked at what she just said, before she smiles and giggles about it. Innuendo and misuse of Does That Remind You Of Anything
  • The Rotom Pokédex's first line includes a request that you be "gentle on the goods". Not an example
    • Another from Rotom — One of the messages it has for you during your Pokedex Evaluation is, "What the zzzt?" Using other words doesn't make it an example
    • In Ultra Sun/Moon, the Rotom Dex's dialogue is something to be believed. As the adventure goes on, the Rotom Dex's dialogue starts off friendly and gets more and more personal to the point of being interpreted as suggestive and outright hitting on your character. It occasionally asks you when you are going to visit one of the Apparel Shops, on grounds that "you'd probably look good in anything, buddy!" Among this gem... Someone thinking a bit too far into things
    Rotom Dex: If you could go into either a Pokeball or the Rotom Dex, which would you prefer? (If you answer "The Rotom Dex") For realzzz? It'll be a bit of a squeezzze, but want to give it a try?
  • If you visit Olivia's room above her fossil shop, you'll find it has a Stufful and four Stufful dolls that "move and are very popular with single ladies". DIH
    • She also says "I do love a boy/girl with a good appetite!" if you eat with her in the restaurant in Konikoni City. If this line wasn't meant to mean something else, one could very easily misconstrue it. Innuendo
  • Should you tease Celesteela with a Pokébean, they will raise one of their arms at you and grin. Sure, they may actually be pretending to try to shoot you (which isn't any better), but the action looks somewhat like they're Flipping the Bird at you. No
  • Incineroar's "pelvic thrust" attack animation counts by itself, but chuck it a Buginium-Z and watch that pelvic thrust release a huge mass of sticky white stuff. Probably not intentional, though this animation is admittedly weird
  • Mina, the Fairy Trial Captain, whose constantly vacant, spacey attitude, flightiness, single-minded obsession with her art projects once she comes up with one, and habit of dropping by her parents' house, stuffing her face with food, and then taking off while hardly saying anything add up to make her about as close to The Stoner as you can get without drugs actually being shown or mentioned. Pokémon Masters even gives her a stoner-esque drawl. G-Rated Drug
  • A lot of the trainers at the Battle Tree have some surprisingly dark things to say, even for this game. This includes a Worker who claims he'll be fired and his wife will divorce him, an old man that begins by admitting he's going senile and ends by saying he's afraid he's getting close to dying, and a Backpacker that very vaguely implies she's currently on the run from an abusive relationship. Considering this game has abusive parents and other dark stuff behind it, as well as the tone with the Pokemon franchise through most games, this isn't an example
  • Early in Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon when the player is saved by the three starter Pokemon, they can say to Kukui "I was scared spitless". I wrote this back when USUM came out nearly 3 years ago, but it's not an example
  • The Pink Petal that Mina gives you after her trial in Ultra Sun and Moon looks suspiciously like a butt plug. Valid
  • If you happen to belong to an often-ridiculed subset of the Pokémon fandom, Lucario’s Pokédex entry in Ultra Moon can easily be interpreted as a surprising call-out: This quote could also mean anything whatsoever, so I don't think this is valid. That said, I'm willing to see if anyone does think this is an example because I'm unsure
    Lucario reads its opponent's feelings with its aura waves. It finds out things it would rather not know, so it gets stressed out easily.
  • Mallow is suspiciously embarrassed when you come upon her in the jungle "relaxing" by having pokemon engulf her in Aromatherapy while Lana watches. She treats it almost like you caught her using drugs or doing something kinky. After dropping you off at your next stop (a volcano) she then remarks on how she wants Lana's Araquanid to cool her down with a Bubblebeam, which of course brings to mind a soaking wet Mallow surrounded by bubbles. Innuendo
  • In Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon a Punk Girl at Poni Coast says this: "This Sightseer with a tiny Exeggutor's been pestering me nonstop!" Innuendo
  • There's an Office Worker in Po Town who sells Big Nuggets once a day, but only if you defeat him in a battle first to prove your worth. Minus the battle, the entire sequence is set up like a drug deal, given that he's in a secluded area like Po Town and you paying 5000 Pokédollars for a potentially-illegal product. Unsure, going to need other people discussing this one
  • At the exit to Seaward Cave in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon is a male swimmer. Approach him at night and he'll ask if you want to see something special; say yes and he'll say that it's better if you bend down. (Actually he's just showing you an effect caused by Finneon.) He closes off the interaction though by saying that should the player want to see the effect again, he can make any night a "special night". Accidental Innuendo

Generation VIII (Sword/Shield)

  • Whoever assembled the Pokédex in Sword appears to have used a line from their favorite erotica as placeholder text for Roggenrolla's entry. There's no other explanation as to why such an unassuming, non-phallic Rock-type would be described as "hard as steel, but softened a bit by a long soak in water". Innuendo
  • When you enter Leon’s room, if you go over to his bookshelf, the description states that there are hard to understand books on the top, and that “Only adults read those types of books.” Ponder on that for a bit. Considering it says that the books are hard to understand, it could just be that they have more complicated words, possible Accidental Innuendo
  • One trainer in the Battle Tower is a young girl who challenges you by shouting "Kneel down before me!" and then comments that her mom always says that to her dad. Looks like the poor kid overheard her parents doing something kinky. Bondage jokes don't count
  • Route 9 is the only water route in Galar and is where the only swimmer class trainers are found, except they're all on land rather than in the water. The reason is obviously because this route is also one of the snow routes and the water would be freezing, but it's also worth noting how one of the Pokémon in the water who chase after the player is Grapploct, a Fighting-type known for powerful grappling moves using its muscular tentacles. Kids wouldn't get this unless they were older, so it's either Parental Bonus or DIH
  • A musical example: It turns out that Toby Fox's guest track, the Battle Tower theme, shares a melody with a previous song of his, "Baby Legend". This Homestuck fansong not only has a rather raunchy intro, but also happens to be part of an mpreg-themed protest album. Referencing adult works don't count
  • In the Sword Isle of Armor DLC, Klara's League Card bizarrely has her Galarian Slowbro in the background bent and warped. Judging by its position and the warping, it's heavily implied to be a poor attempt by Klara to photoshop her own photo to make her breasts appear bigger. Being an A-Cup Angst isn't GCPTR
  • If Piers and Opal are on a team in the Galarian Star Tournament, the fight might start with Opal encouraging (or threatening) Piers to do good, otherwise she'll Play Rough. Innuendo
    Piers: Yeah, I've gotta pass on that. I don't think I could handle havin' an 88 year old Play Rough.
    • Her eyes also go wide, leaving it debatable if she actually realized what she just said. Intentional, but the innuendo isn't strong enough here

Spin-Offs

  • Bringing out Nidoqueen in Pokémon Stadium has it shake its, um, assets from side to side. Doesn't help that said assets are plainly visible and are shaped similarly to actual breasts, minus the nipples. The Japanese version has a different animation where Nidoqueen is plainly seen lifting its breasts up with its paws. Barbie Doll Anatomy means it likely doesn't count here
  • After beating Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, if the player goes back to Boyleland and talks to the couple inside one of the houses, they only have this to say: Abusive relationships don't count
    Man: Our relationship turned turbulent like boiling magma...
    Woman: This guy's explosive like a volcano...
  • Aegislash's second palette Pokkén Tournament recolors it to resemble a bloodied, rusting sword. There's no other Pokemon game that shows blood, so possibly valid?

Manga

  • Pokémon Adventures:
    • The original arc involved some examples, but unfortunately the Radar for the English releases caught on and removed most of them in reprints: First off, why does it say unfortunately? This trope isn't a seal of approval. Secondly, if the English releases caught on then none of these got past the radar
      • The events at Mt. Moon end with Red carrying an unconscious Misty out of the caves, and when she wakes up she accuses him of groping her and and punches him.
      • The page image is of Red seeing the Pokémon Fan Club newsletter with the headline "Shocking Case Of Poké-Love: 'That's the last bath I'll take with my Tentacool!'" And this wasn't changed in reprints. Guess the translators didn't know what that meant... And can we all just take a moment to remember that Tentacool are jellyfish with tentacles covered in thousands of neurotoxic stingers? Considering it didn't get uncensored this might be an example, though Adventures has slightly more mature content than the games
      • The standout incident has to be Green's gambit where she taunted Sabrina into slashing at her chest, only to reveal a couple of Poké Balls hidden in her bust.
    • The GSC arc shows Sabrina get out of the water at some hot springs with only some Censor Steam covering her rear. Typical anime hot spring episode doesn't count.
    • Also at the end of GSC, Gold gropes Green's butt, earning Silver's wrath. The US version changed Gold's dialogue to make it seem like he did it by accident, but still. Again, typical anime stuff
    • Dahlia's introduction at the Battle Arcade starts with her dancing behind. The next page, it's pretty obvious what Looker is looking at. This is just standard anime Male Gaze stuff, this whole manga section is either not examples or Values Dissonance
    • In the Viz translation, Symbol Swearing appears often, symbolizing cursing. Even from ten year olds. Symbol Swearing doesn't count
    • This exchange from FRLG involving the Ship Tease between Bill and Daisy doesn't help: Flirting isn't valid
      Blue: You're...not with my sister today?
      Bill: (nervously) Oh, uh...Daisy's at home.
    • Fans have noticed the suggestive looking positions the "camera" is on in the Unova arcs. There's quite an emphasis on backsides. This is once again standard anime tropes, we're really on a role with this one aren't we?
  • The Electric Tale of Pikachu contains a few.
    • Sometimes minor curse words would slip in, including one bit where a trainer used "Damnation" egregiously during battle. The few compilations sold in more family-friendly markets would Bowdlerise them. This outright says it didn't get past the radar
    • The manga has been censored in Japan too. Some things still flew past the radar, though, such as a hot springs scene in the second volume, which is retained in the Taiwanese and Singaporean localizations. Valid, the hot springs episode is much more explicit compared to what's shown in Pokemon Adventures
  • Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl Adventure! has an attempted suicide when Mitsumi decides to stay in a crumbling base to atone for her past actions. Jun saves her. Might be valid? I don't know this manga and how dark it is.

Other

  • Pokémon Live!:
    • One of Ash's happy memories in the finale is of the banned bikini episode. Valid
    • As Giovanni and Delia talk, he says he has fond memories of their early days while fiddling with the lock on her cage. Innuendo
    • After being slapped around by a bunch of girls, Brock remarks that he liked it and it made him tingle. Innuendo
  • A song used to promote the series in Japan, called Torikaekko Please, features a part with intimate duet between a man and a woman, with the lyrics "I have what you want / I've got what you want / If so then / Let's do it together / So that "we are both satisfied"...." ...Turns out they were talking about trading Pokémon. Accidental Innuendo
  • This neat little 'Pokétoon' starring a Scraggy and a Mimikyu is animated in the style of golden age cartoons, and its humor is very much like what you'd expect from its inspiration - to the point of a gag involving Mimikyu moving within Scraggy's 'pants' with the appearance of a large bulge, momentarily giving the very distinct appearance of... something else.

[up] Well...depends. Was anything in the game changed, translation-wise? Or was it essentially just a copy-pasted rom?

I wouldn't say the Beauty entry is transphobic. GCPTR doesn't mean "this is inappropriate" it means "the censors usually don't allow this" and a lot of video games don't allow explicit transgender characters - I can think of two trans Nintendo characters (Birdo, and Vivian from Paper Mario) who were bowdlerized to remove references to that in the English dub. Not sure if it's still an example, though.

Also, why is the "rubbing a Pokemon's crotch in Pokemon Amie" thing valid? It's more Video Game Perversity Potential or Accidental Innuendo.

BTW, I added the Tuber entry a while back not to be creepy, because it creeped me out. It's not an example, I'll admit, but what the hell was that NPC trying to say?

I've said before (many, many times before) that we'd probably eliminate 90 percent of this trope's misuse if we could hammer it into people's heads that this trope is not a good thing. It's part of a whole bundle of Bad Troper Beliefs, really.

I agree. That's a big part of why I sorted the example section by radar system, to put the focus on the censors, not the works. For what it's worth, the first examples in the PEGI and ESRB sections are about Crash Team Racing sneaking in microtransactions, which people hate. The first examples in the CBFC section is about bribing the ratings board for lower ratings.

I've started going through the Film/ namespace, and I find that tropers are much better about writing examples for movies that came out before most of us were born. There are still a lot of bad examples, but the good ones make up a higher proportion. This doesn't just appear to be because standards really were that strict before the mid-70s; part of it too is that the people who watch those movies are more likely to have an interest in the history of cinema, and they're better about explaining the context of things. Fewer tropers watching also means there's less opportunity for "Oh my gosh they said 'Hell'!" or shoehorning.

I still had to cut a bunch of pre-Hays Code examples, though.


Reyn is pleasantly enthusiastic about cleanup. I'm going to have a look at the Pokémon examples they say are valid or unclear.

Caveat: I have not played a Pokémon game since Silver, so I'm judging these examples at face value.

  • "This gym is great! It's full of women!" Said by an elderly man standing right outside Celadon Gym. This was finally bowdlerised to "strong trainers!" when you return to Kanto in HGSS.

Not valid. A man finding women attractive is acceptable.

Not sure about this one, but I'm leaning towards not valid. The way it's written, it sounds like the guy is just supposed to come off as a cloudcuckoolander, not a paedophile. Can reasonably be AI.

  • Salazzle's Dex Entry in Sun outright mentions that it likes to keep a reverse harem of male Salandit around it, while the official website states Salandit's pheromones attract both male Pokémon and humans.

Hmm. I checked the wiki; Here's what it says:

[Sun] For some reason, only females have been found. It creates a reverse harem of male Salandit that it lives with.

[Ultra Sun] Salazzle lives deep in caves and forces the Salandit it has attracted with its pheromones to serve it.

The Ultra Sun example doesn't seem objectionable - it actually sounds like using pheromones to mind control Salandit into doing chores rather than anything sexual.

The Sun example is questionable. Harem is a zoological term, and the 'dex entry seems to be talking about reproduction rather than fornicating. Simply saying that reproduction occurs doesn't violate any radar systems, and I don't believe anything is actually shown.

Anything written on the official website is irrelevant, because the ratings agencies only rate the game itself, not supplementary material.

Bloody Hell that's not an example. It's just a reference to people sometimes having unpleasant thoughts, which distresses Lucario. People can have negative thoughts about things other than shagging.

  • There's an Office Worker in Po Town who sells Big Nuggets once a day, but only if you defeat him in a battle first to prove your worth. Minus the battle, the entire sequence is set up like a drug deal, given that he's in a secluded area like Po Town and you paying 5000 Pokédollars for a potentially-illegal product.

Big nuggets appear to be lumps of gold; they're just vendor trash, and with that in mind, the example doesn't sound remotely like a drug deal. Drugs aren't the only illegal substance people try and fence.

  • Aegislash's second palette Pokkén Tournament recolors it to resemble a bloodied, rusting sword.

ESRB rates it E10+ and PEGI gives it 7, both of which come with a Violence content warning. The radars picked this one up.


  • The page image is of Red seeing the Pokémon Fan Club newsletter with the headline "Shocking Case Of Poké-Love: 'That's the last bath I'll take with my Tentacool!'" And this wasn't changed in reprints. Guess the translators didn't know what that meant... And can we all just take a moment to remember that Tentacool are jellyfish with tentacles covered in thousands of neurotoxic stingers?

This is just a parody of attention-grabbing tabloid headlines.

Moreover, manga does not have any sort of age rating system in Japan, and Adventures debuted before American manga publishers started applying voluntary ratings. The only radar system involved would be Viz' internal policies, so we'll need a source before we can consider this valid.

  • [The Electric Tale of Pikachu has been censored in Japan too. Some things still flew past the radar, though, such as a hot springs scene in the second volume, which is retained in the Taiwanese and Singaporean localizations.

From what the wiki says, this example is poorly written.

Toshihiro Ono is the writer and lead artist, and his team make a manga with a fair amount of nudity and stuff designed to appeal to teenage boys. Ono later edits the artwork for publication in CoroCoro, but the tankobons use the original art. There's no reason Shogakukan can't have different policies for their magazines and trades.

As to the hot springs scene, it's in the original Japanese. It was removed from the English translation, but maintained in the Chinese translation. This means it didn't get past Viz' radar. It might have gotten past Chuang Yi's radar, but without a source, we have no idea what Chuang Yi's internal policies might be, so I would say this one should be excluded.

Manga in Japan does not have any specific regulatory body or industry rating system. Some American publishers voluntarily use an internal rating system; Viz is one of those, though they do advise that the ratings are ultimately based on their subjective opinions.

Looking around the Internet, I wasn't able to find if PDPA has a specific age rating; the closest I could find is that Book Depository says it's suitable for 9-12 year olds. Viz' own All Ages rating is relatively permissive, so I'm going to say this example is probably not valid.


  • One of Ash's happy memories in the finale is of the banned bikini episode.

Probably not valid, since I don't believe theatre is subject to any sort of age rating system (after all, children regularly see Avenue Q). This sounds more like a PB.

Frankly, the main thing this thread is convincing me is that ratings boards make no sense.

A lot of the stuff on the Pokemon page can go to DIH. I think the "weird man" one sounds like it could be an intentional innuendo, which would belong there. Same with the "Shocking Case of Poke-Love" example. The manga sounds like it could be something like What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?.

I'd let the theatre example slide because it's an official franchise product made in America, referencing something that was banned and not referenced in any American work due to Values Dissonance regarding sexual content. I don't think it would fit Parental Bonus, at least not as written, because it seems to be a Continuity Nod to something banned from American TV. (Worth noting it's one of those "live on stage" productions that are undoubtedly geared towards young children.)

So there's no page for this one, but I'm not sure on any of these examples. From Kid Icarus Uprising: The Novelization

  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: The game had its fair share of moments, the fanfic adds to them as some of the characters are more prone to cursing.
    • Pit asking Viridi if she wears foliage panties in Chapter 11, as mentioned above, which she accidentally admits to. Later in the chapter, two soldiers getting into an argument with their language growing more coarse as it progresses. One of them even giving the other the middle finger. Pit even calls them out on it.
      Pit: Okay, okay enough! No need to be dropping F-Bombs all over the place. Kids might be reading this fanfic!
    • Hades's Bigger Is Better in Bed exchange with Pit and Viridi's Curse Cut Short moment in Ch 17. Had Palutena not interrupted her, it would've been quite obvious what the next word would have been.
    • Chapter 18 has Phosphora telling Pit she sometimes Sleeps in the Nude and invites Pit to sleep with her if he feels lonely, which is only made worse by Viridi offering him a blinder because she has a tendency to sleepwalk. Also, it's revealed that she does indeed wear foliage panties.
    • Chapter 20 has Pit of all people dropping the F-Bomb. Twice! The first time is when Viridi's obnoxious snarking becomes too much for him to handle. Phosphora calls him out on it.
      Pit: VIRIDI, WOULD YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP FOR THE NEXT TWO GODDAMN SECONDS?!
      Phosphora: These are goddesses you're talking to here, Pit. Watch your tone. And watch your language. Kids are reading this.
      • And the second time occurs in his famous Tranquil Fury moment with Hades.
      Pit: Go home, Hades. Just go. The fuck. Home.
    • Chapter 23 has Palutena calling Dark Pit a jackass.

Here's the thing, the fanfic is rated for Teens so I highly doubt any of these are legit examples. That said, I don't know how ratings on Fan Fiction.net works. Are they submitted by the staff or by the users? Because if they're done by the users then there flat out isn't a radar at all.

That's something I'm curious about as well. The guidelines page just says they use the FictionRatings.com categories, but that's just something somebody made for other people to voluntarily apply to their work.

As far as I can tell, FF.net ratings are assigned by the uploader and are based on the uploader's own opinion about what's suitable for each age group. Given that, it is impossible for something to get past the radar; or, as Reyn says, the radar doesn't exist.
