The Kaitou Joker anime series has been censored outside Japan. Some international airings remove scenes which are deemed inappropriate for region-specific viewers. Some episodes were skipped then later aired.
Hong Kong Edit
South Korea Edit
All Japanese text has been replaced to Korean text when aired in Cartoon Network Korea.
Southeast Asia Edit
The anime was edited to follow the broadcasting guidelines of The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia Pte Ltd for Disney XD Asia. Some scenes that were inappropriate for Southeast Asian viewers were cut, while some episodes were skipped due to dark plots and sub-character deaths.
Season 1 Edit
- The scene where Joker jumps off the roof is cut, possibly due to being thought of as a reference to suicide.
- The scene where the man pulls Inspector Oniyama's underwear is cut.
- The moment where Shadow Joker steps on Hachi is cut.
Both of these episodes were initially skipped, then aired at the end of Season 2. This was likely done to fix the plothole of how Queen left Professor Clover and reconciled with Joker and Silver Heart. Edit
- The scene where Queen deals a powerful blow to Silver Heart with her sword is shortened.
- The scene where Medusa falls into the lava is shortened.
