* The first episode of ''Back to the Sewer'', ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]''' seventh season, plays the intro for ''Fast Forward'', the series' sixth. While it makes sense in context -- the episode is a transitional one, taking the characters from one premise to the next, with the actual opening played in the end to reflect the change -- the fact that both seasons feature different characters, settings, premise, and art style, and that [[FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]] had actually organized a contest to let the fans vote for the new theme song made the bait and switch ''very'' surprising -- and disconcerting.

* The beginning of the movie ''[[Film/AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes Return of the Killer Tomatoes]]'' shows a group of attractive teenager girls in skimpy bathing suits romping on a beach, with a voiceover announcing "You are about to see the movie ''Big Breasted Women Go To The Beach And Take Their Tops Off''" (complete with a Beach Boys-style theme song containing those words), until the screen goes black, the voiceover apologizes for showing the wrong movie, and the title for "Return of the Killer Tomatoes" appears.

* The opening for ''BeverlyHillsTeens'' makes it look like a show about surreal and over-the-top globetrotting adventures. While wacky stuff does occasionally happen, it's more of a sitcom-esque AffectionateParody of 80's greed and decadence.

* Subverted in ''GateKeepers''. The OP depicts [[{{Meganekko}} Megumi Kurogane]] apparently firing an [[KamehameHadoken energy blast]] from her hand. This is supposed to be impossible in-universe, as her power is to [[BarrierWarrior create walls]]... then you notice that Megumi ''was'' using her barriers - to ''block'' said blast.

* A rather different example might be the ''Mega Man'' cartoon made in America. The title sequence was pure awesome with its detailed Japanese-style animation, only a short time before it became mainstream. The actual cartoon was rather blander and, well... cartoonish to the eye, more in line with traditional early-'90s American animated action fare. Apparently an episode was done in each style, and test audiences preferred the American one.
** This is justified, if the series was anything like the opening the series would have been 5 minutes long with Megaman dead from all the massive explosions.

** The third opening shows Yami Yugi dueling Marik on the Battle Ship (a zeppelin). However, Marik never duels personally in the series at all; he's eventually replaced by his SuperpoweredEvilSide who duels our protagonist on the top of the Alcatraz Tower after the FillerArc.
** The fifth opening shows The Winged Dragon of Ra without teeth. While Ra's Ancient Egypt version has no teeth in the manga, in the anime it does have them. The fifth opening in general is much more inspired by the manga's take on the arc than on [[AdaptationDecay the one that actually aired]] - most obviously, the anime added in diadhanks, which are completely absent in the opening, and Yugi and his friends are in school uniforms, which is the case in the manga but not the anime.

** The fourth opening features Yuya's rematch with Jack Atlas. Odd-eYes Rebellion Dragon is fighting Red Daemon's Dragon Scarlight in the opening, but Yuya does not summon it during the rematch.

** The fourth opening prominently features Judai's Card Ejecter, despite it never appears in the fourth season. Card Ejecter is only played once, during the FinalBattle of the third season, but its effect is interrupted. This card is not even neither one of Judai's signature cards nor a duel spirit. Some viewers would think that Judai got this card in the fourth season.

** The second opening shows participants of the Junior Youth Championship in a prominent way, these includes the students from the various Duel Schools and the LDS trio. None of them is actually important to the tournament plot and they are eliminated pretty early, most of them off-screen or very quick. Particularly, the LDS trio, who are supporting characters, are highlighted with the rest of the supporting cast, but all of them besides Masumi, who was eliminated before the opening was first aired, suffer from TheWorfEffect and they have lost their prominence in the show.
** The second opening depicts a vicious battle between an angry Yuya and Yugo, using Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon and Clear Wing Synchro Dragon, respectively. Preseumably, it was setting up a war between them, as Yuya is on a mission to rescue Yuzu, who Yugo accidentally whisked away. In the show proper, Not only does Yuya not use Odd-Eyes Rebellion during the span the show used this opening, but he and Yugo never duel. Their only meeting came at the end of episode 91, and they never spoke - they just dueled their opponents in the same room. What's more, neither of the two bear any ill will towards each other; in fact, Yugo seems to think Yuya's a pretty cool guy if Yuzu thinks so highly of him.

** The intro also shows Magical Nurse, Magical Sister and Magical Maid working together to defeat a monster. The three magical girls spend the entire series fighting amongst themselves until circumstances force them to work together in the finale (however, the clip ''does'' spoil the CombinationAttack they use to defeat [[spoiler:Possessed!Lilia]]).
