* ''{{Series/Lexx}}'': The Echo Bridge DVD covers not only feature CGI landscapes that don't appear anywhere in the show itself[[labelnote:*]]''though to be fair, given the show's deliberate cheese factor, they make it look much better than it actually does''[[/labelnote]], but the first season cover has Xenia Seeberg on it, an actress who doesn't even appear until season two.

* ''Series/TalesFromTheCrypt'': The pictures of the Cryptkeeper on each cover are actually taken from an episode from a completely different season than the one the cover is for. For example, the Season 6 cover (Cryptkeeper in bed with a skeleton) is taken from the host segments of the Season 4 episode "None But the Lonely Heart."

* The info guide synopses for the first season of ''Series/AngieTribeca'' contain a running thread of the Lieutenant being sick (apparently suffering from bacterial meningitis), with the finale's synopsis claiming that he's "inches away from death". None of this is true in the show.

* The poster for season 1 of ''GameOfThrones'' shows Ned Stark sitting on the Iron Throne, gripping his sword with a dark, brooding look on his face. It implies he's a driven VillainProtagonist who kills anyone who stands in his way to become king, when really he's one of the few protagonists ''not'' concerned with their own power or glory.

** The biggest howler comes from Pinnacle Books' reprint of "Day of the Daleks," which gave us a Dalek with ''two'' sink-plungers (!), a menacing, Mongol-like Ogron (!!), and a huge spaceship that wouldn't look out of place in ''StarWars'', proudly bearing the word UNIT across its surface (!!!).

Added DiffLines:

** Most of the time, ''Doctor Who's'' novelization covers were fairly accurate...with exceptions. "The Dalek Invasion of Earth," for example, featured a Dalek spaceship and a Roboman, both of whom were taken from ''DaleksInvasionEarth2150AD'', the Peter Cushing movie.

* ''WalkingWithBeasts'' was only ever released in Hungary on a pair of VHS tapes. These featured images and story descriptions for the first two episodes (one tape centered around the episode ''New Dawn'', the second was all about ''Whale Killer''[[note]] although the episode titles printed onto the cases and the cassettes were inconsistent with each other[[/note]]). In reality, the first VHS contained episodes one to three and the first bonus feature, while the second had episodes four to six, as well as the second bonus.

* A light but rather strange example of this is the ''Series/{{Friends}}'' Season 6 DVD set: the insert contains a group photo of the gang at Central Perk that was clearly taken during Season 4. Even more bizarrely, head shots were later cropped from this photo and then used on the ''Season 8'' DVD cover.

* The DVD of the MiniSeries ''ToTheEndsOfTheEarth'' features Sam Neill's face largest and in the forefront, and his name and profile on the case spine, even though he plays a very minor character. The real star, Creator/BenedictCumberbatch, is barely noted.
