* A rather unique example comes from Metal combat: Falcon's revenge. The title makes it seem like Falcon is the villain, while it is actually the name of your own mech from the first game, ''VideoGame/BattleClash'' .
* When ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' was first released, some players thought that the title refer to the newest model of the titular mecha (which is actually called Metal Gear Rex).

** Likewise, one Japanese print preview of ''VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake'' from ''MSX Magazine'' refers to the newest model of the Metal Gear in that game as the "Metal Gear 2". The actual Metal Gear in that game is called Metal Gear D, although this name is only mentioned in the ending sequence. While there is a proper "Metal Gear 2" in the series, it only appears in the western-exclusive NES sequel ''VideoGame/SnakesRevenge'' (and is presumably the reason why Metal Gear D is named differently).

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' refers to the massive ringworld superweapons, not the main character who's generally referred to as Master Chief.

* The name of the counter-terrorist team in ''VideoGame/RainbowSix'' is actually "Rainbow", referring to how their multinational membership means they're under several flags. "Six" is the nickname of the person running the team.

* It's easy to think [[http://toren-game.com/ Toren]] refers to the game's heroine. In truth, it is a Portuguese word (the developers are Brazilian) for "tower", as the entire game takes place on a sky-high tower.

* According to ''The Third VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ: Tengoku-hen'', The Edel is apparently a general term for "the person who acquired the great power from the Black Knowledge" and doesn't refer to a specific entity.

** A similar problem occurs with ''VideoGame/MegaManX'', the protagonist of which is simply named X, ''not'' Mega Man X. (Confusing the issue is the fact that in the North American release of ''VideoGame/MegaManX1'' and ''VideoGame/MegaManX2'', X is referred to as "Mega Man X" a few times, though this is not the case in the Japanese version, where he is still X, just like he is in every other game throughout the series.)

* ''VideoGame/MegaManZero''. The main hero is not a "Mega Man", and the two words are only added in to [[ViewersAreMorons associate it with the rest of the series.]] ([[MyHeroZero After all, the "Zero" handle isn't exactly rare these days...]]) The games themselves never screw this up, but the English manuals do -- and the manga adds to the mess by ''distinguishing'' between Zero and Mega Man Zero, making the latter Zero's SuperMode.
