* ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' was originally created on a shoestring as a FanSequel to continue a series that most fans feared was permanently dead. Because it was what was on hand, the original developer populated the ''Clash'' game and wiki with stock art that suggested a generic low-fantasy setting with little in common with the Nexus lore. When the current development team formed, one of the first things that they did was hire an artist to start creating better art that reflected what the game is actually about.

**Said rapier actually does appear in the game as any rapier's "Item Crush", however it's used for a single slash, screen-sized, and certainly not equipable as the cover implies.

* [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/saturn/574582-mass-destruction/images/box-14319 The]] Japanese version cover of ''Mass Destruction'', a game where you drive a tank, blow things up and leave smoking craters and debris behind shows a tree which implies peacefulness[[note]]though, if you think about it, what's going to grow up after everything's destroyed?[[/note]]. The backside is accurate, and the original American version stays true, though.

* ''VideoGame/{{Phalanx}}'' as seen on the main page. From the cover, one expects a SpaceWestern. In reality, Phalanx is just another ShootEmUp, only known today for its unusual cover. This was an InvokedTrope, because the developers ''knew'' that ''Phalanx'' was just another ShootEmUp and chose Mr. Banjo Man to make the game stand out, if only for its lying cover.

* The NES game TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles 3: The Manhattan Project has the four turtles fighting Foot Soldiers and Mousers as one might expect. Somewhat prominently, Triceraton is featured fighting the Turtles on the box, but he does not appear in the game.

* The box art of ''[[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry Donkey Kong Land 2]]'', a pseudo-port of the SNES ''Donkey Kong Country 2'', shows the Kongs swimming in an underwater shipwreck with Glimmer the angler fish following behind them. Glimmer doesn't appear anywhere in the actual game; the stage Glimmer's Galleon, where he normally appears, has him replaced with barrels that temporarily light up the screen, presumably due to hardware limitations.

* ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'''s [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/nintendo/images/6/63/Sands_of_Destruction_%28NA%29.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100917072754&path-prefix=en American box art]] makes it seem like Kyrie is the one out to destroy the world and Morte is some sort of pensive ApocalypseMaiden. The reality is quite the opposite: he's a gentle boy who [[BlessedWithSuck happens to be capable of ending the world]], [[BeingTheChosenOneSucks but really doesn't want to]]; she's a GenkiGirl OmnicidalManiac who wants to use his power to destroy the world. He ''does'' end up being [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl very protective]] of her, at least. The original [[http://img.gamefaqs.net/box/4/0/4/96404_front.jpg Japanese box art]] just had the six playable characters standing in a line, giving no hints as to personality or intentions.

* ''Videogame/MegaManClassic'' is infamous for this. The American covers show Mega-Man as an adult with a handgun. In reality, he's actually designed as a young boy, and uses an ArmCannon instead. The color of his suit is also off, being light-blue and yellow instead of the actual dark blue and light blue scheme. This is because the artist never actually so the game. This character even appeared in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'' as [[http://megaman.wikia.com/wiki/Bad_Box_Art_Mega_Man#cite_note-6 Bad Box Art Mega Man]].
