Platform: Sega Pico
Despite being aimed at preschool-aged children and their parents, the Sega Pico was marketed in the US in a similar edgy fashion to Sega's products for older audiences, particularly with a commercial titled "Sponge", which opens with loud rock music and features intense camera cuts, mild slapstick, and most unexpectedly, a joke where the Sega Pico is shown as a heavenly device protecting a child from a drag pageant reality show titled "Middle-Aged Men Who Want to Be Teenage Girls".

Additionally, while much tamer and inoffensive, the animated commercials featuring the Pico's mascot, Smart Alex, featured the loud and in-your-face "Sega Scream".

Angry Birds Seasons
Attachment Matilda from Angry Birds was originally designed as an unnamed male bird, but was changed to female when higher ups at Rovio realized that male birds do not lay eggs. The Valentine's Day season of Angry Birds Seasons gave Matilda a girlfriend, which, after the change, retroactively gave the unintended implication of Matilda being a lesbian, despite actually being straight and later marrying Terence in the film series. When Matilda was redesigned for the 2013 animated webseries Angry Birds Toons, she would gain the pink cheeks of her former girlfriend. Angry Birds Seasons was removed from app stores in 2019, completing the retcon of the girlfriend character. Despite this, the Angry Birds franchise would introduce LGBTQ+ side characters and support LGBTQ+ fan works in later years.

Garfield Labyrinth
Attachment Garfield Labyrinth is a localized version of Mickey Mouse IV: Mahou no Labyrinth where, instead of Mickey having to save Minnie, Garfield has to rescue Odie - however, the ending cutscene of the game was not modified to account for the change from Mickey's girlfriend to Garfield's foil, resulting in the accidental implication that Garfield and Odie are in a homoromantic relationship as they hold hands surrounded by hearts, frolic in flowers, and travel in a hot air balloon.

Peppa Pig: World Adventures
Peppa Pig: World Adventures' character creator allows players to make same-sex parents and families comprised of multiple animal species, developer David Moral has claimed that it would've been significantly easier during development to simply have a default player family instead of a character creator, but that it was not an option to anyone on the development team and striving for representation was "super worth it".
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
In the Japanese and European versions, Vivian is portrayed as the youngest brother (not sister) of the Shadow Triad as a transvestite, with references to his gender identity being retrospectively analyzed as typical of portrayals of transgender people in popular media at the time of the game's release. A rough translation of the Japanese text for Vivian as a party member reads:

カゲ三人組の一人だった オンナのコのようで ホントは オトコのコ
"One of the shadow group, Vivian appears to be a girl but is really a boy."

This was changed in the English localization to simply make Vivian a girl with "a bit of an inferiority complex."
