* [[http://i.imgur.com/P5PPsCs.png This]] was used as the cover for a shareware release of ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D: Spear of Destiny'', as featured by WebVideo/LazyGameReviews [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRc88azfsKY here]].

* The cover to ''VideoGame/TheGreatGianaSisters'' does not show Giana and her sister Maria. It shows ordinary Giana alongside "punk Giana", who was essentially the original game's version of Super Mario. The "punk Giana" later became an at-will transformation, but still Giana all the same.

* Particularly way-out example in the case of Superior Software's UsefulNotes/BBCMicro version of ''Tempest''. AsYouKnow, ''Tempest'' was an early vector graphics game, with a claw-shaped blaster firing down a true-perspective playfield. Superior Software's box and ads had screenshots of this, but the main painted artwork was of a dark and stormy night, with church tower in the background and an ominous figure in top hat and red-lined opera cape in the foreground... suggesting a possible breakdown in communications with the artist.

* The Game Boy port of ''AvengingSpirit'' depicted a Mobster with a tommy gun. While he ''is'' a character in the game, the real main character is a BedsheetGhost [[BodySurf who possesses people]], and the art style is nowhere near as realistic (In-fact it was ''even cutsier'' than the original arcade game).

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

* The Game Boy Port of ''AvengingSpirit'' depicted a Mobster with a Tommy Gun made it look like a Mafia-Themed Game when in reality it's about a Ghost ''[[Main/BodySurf Who Possesses People]]'' and played similar to Kirby.

* The [[http://www.mariowiki.com/images/b/bd/Yoshi%27sSafariBox.png cover art]] for the Super NES rail shooter ''Yoshi's Safari'' prominently features Yoshi, yet Mario is nowhere to be seen despite his own in-game prominence outside the actual gameplay. But then Yoshi is depicted looking back at the camera as if it's Mario.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Bubsy}} Bubsy 3D]]'' went as far as BlatantLies. Its cover showed supposedly glowing quotes and reviews from "EGM". The '''actual''' EGM review was unmistakably negative, giving it a 3.25 out of 10.

It is possible the cover is actually quoting the far more obscure U.S publication ''Electronic Games'', though this is hard to verify due to ''Electronic Games''' obscurity.

Its cover showed supposedly glowing quotes and reviews from "EGM" and "PS Extreme" magazines, with the latter giving it the "Gold X Award". The '''actual''' EGM review was unmistakably negative, giving it a 3.25 out of 10. PS Extreme magazine never even had a "Gold X Award", and there's no record of them ever having reviewed the game at all.
