* Overlapping with Western Animation, it's generally assumed that if a show ''looks'' [[{{Animesque}} like an anime]], it must be one. One could probably forgive cases like ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' or ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', but ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'', which has a lot of satire regarding ''America'' and is based on an ''American newspaper comic''... Not so much. [[AccidentallyCorrectWriting Then again, all animation is called anime in Japan, so...]]

* A ''New York Times'' article once featured comedic redesigns of WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse done by [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents Butch]] [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Hartman]], one of which was a vaguely {{Animesque}} take. The paper claimed that particular design was inspired by ''Dragon Ball Z'', which they referred to as a popular children's card game. There ''was'' a ''DBZ'' card game at one point, but the writer seemed to be unaware that it was spun-off from the massively popular TV show and manga.

* A September 11, 2008 MSNBC [[http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26639577/ report on "sexy anime going mainstream"]]. It said "[[{{Lolicon}} Lolicom]]" is a combination of "Lolita" and "comic". And that "{{Otaku}}" is a word meaning "Techno-geek".

* One of the episode descriptions for [[Anime/YoKaiWatch Yo-Kai Watch]] on Tri-State New York cable provider Optimum accidentally used the Japanese names for the characters [[DubNameChange instead of the dub names]]. This was only done for one episode, but some kids watching the show on demand may have been confused as to who "Keita" and "Fumi-chan" were.

** Partially understandable since [[InMyLanguageThatSoundsLike the word "anime" looks like "animé", the French translation for animation in general, without the accent mark]].

For the record if you want to specify you're talking about Japanese animation in France, they use "Manga" for both anime and manga.

* ''Disney Adventures'' has labeled a picture of Anubis (from the first ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' movie) as "Seto Kaiba". They apologized for the mistake in a later issue.

* During a ''Trainer's Choice'' quiz during the Hoenn season of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, they asked which Pokémon evolved into Seviper. The answer was Arbok. Arbok doesn't evolve at all, and Seviper doesn't evolve from anything, so breeding Seviper doesn't get an Ekans (which evolves into Arbok). This was quickly picked up as ammo against [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]]. Apparently, the employee they stuck with that role hadn't paid enough attention to the episodes in early Hoenn where Jessie releases her Arbok and then catches a Seviper.
** The ''Trainer's Choice'' segments also had trouble telling which Pokemon was Nuzleaf; one segment featured a picture of Beautifly, and another featured Sealeo, neither of which look anything like Nuzleaf or are the same type.
** Not to mention that even as far back as ''Kanto'' they had no idea about which Pokémon was which, as the Pokérap shows Geodude's picture when the song says 'Graveler!' and Poliwag when it says 'Poliwrath!' (although later episodes corrected the latter).
** "[[http://www.deseretnews.com/article/731922/ Pikachu, a character from the popular children's television show ''"Pokeman"'' (...)]]"
** Issues of the now-defunct ''SCRYE'' magazine had a list of Japanese Pokémon cards that had yet to be released in America, and helpfully included descriptions of the cards for those who couldn't read Japanese. In one issue, they included a picture of the [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/thumb/5/50/HereComesTeamRocketTeamRocket15.jpg/200px-HereComesTeamRocketTeamRocket15.jpg Here Comes Team Rocket!]] card, with the description "Two girls and a Meowth stare at you". Granted, James DOES dress like a girl pretty often...
** The anime's dubbers themselves totally misnamed the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' that appear in the 'Who's that Pokémon?' section of the first movie. Granted, it was the Team Rocket trio naming the Pokémon, but those mistakes weren't present in the original Japanese version and the dubbers just made the Rockets look like idiots as an excuse to leave the errors in. Doesn't excuse the "Sandshrew" and "Pidgeotto" bits elsewhere, either.
** According to ''TV Guide'' and the Comcast information guides, the plot of ''Pokémon: The First Movie'' has Ash and friends battling Mewtwo and the scientist that created him -- despite the fact that Mewtwo killed said scientist within the first few minutes of the film.
** Also, some information guides describe ''Lucario and the Mystery of Mew'' with, "The Pokémon must rescue Pikachu from the clutches of evil Mew." Mew is portrayed as playful, not malicious, in ''all'' of its appearances including this one, and a later part of the movie has them trying to ''save'' Mew.
** Italian DVD listings for ''Anime/PokemonZoroarkMasterOfIllusions'' states that Zoroark is "a terrible 3rd Generation Pokémon who came back on Earth searching his beloved son Zorua, lost into an astral accident". Well... first thing, Zoroark is a 5th Generation Pokémon. Second, '''she''' doesn't come from space. Third, [[GenderBender the Zoroark in the film is]] [[MonsterIsAMommy a mom]]. Are you confusing Zoroark with Deoxys, maybe?
** In the months leading up to the release of ''Red'' and ''Blue'', an issue of ''Disney Adventures'' gave an extremely vague description of a "fuzzy yellow creature named Pokémon."
** ''Disney Adventures'' also made the mistake of labeling Tracey as Brock in a blurb for the second movie.
*** The same magazine has also labeled a picture of Anubis (from the first ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' movie) as "Seto Kaiba". They apologized for the mistake in a later issue.
** Also in regards to the second movie: A ''Pokémon''-centric magazine ran an article summarizing the second movie, and even though they clearly knew Brock wasn't going to be in it (at least not the main plot), they somehow did not mention Tracey alongside Ash and Misty throughout the entire article. To be fair, though, the only thing Tracey did that had an impact was when he stopped Ash at one point.
** An early VHS promo for the show listed Sabrina as one of Ash's companions.
** In the ''Magazyn Plus'''s (the magazine for Cyfra+'s subscribers) [[http://i43.tinypic.com/2woyjyt.png Polish information guide]] of ''Diamond and Pearl'' season, they described Ash as a Pokemon; fortunately, this was the only thing that they screwed up.
** A description for the first ''Advanced Generation'' episode claimed that Ash and Pikachu arrived in the "city of Hoenn". Thing is, Hoenn is a geographical region, not a city; this would be akin to saying "the city of Colorado" or "the city of Scotland".
** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ozuc9CJ5odw this Kids' WB promo]], Lou Bega sings that Misty had a Vulpix. Vulpix was Brock's Pokemon at the time.

* The author of [[http://thwordinc.blogspot.com/2013/12/where-evil-takes-us.html?m=1 This blog post]] apparently believes all anime is child pornography, hoping to entice old men and corrupt and abuse the innocent and claims it is all about "innocent-looking schoolgirls who end up doing less than innocent things". Could be seen as a case of AllAnimeIsNaughtyTentacles
