* {{Invoked|Trope}} {{h|ehHehYouSaidX}}ard for humorous effect by ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtheadDoAmerica'', which leads with the main characters in a [[BuddyCopShow '70s-style cop show]] opening, complete with a theme song in the mode of ''Film/{{Shaft}}'' and performed by none other than Isaac Hayes himself. As one might have guessed, the protagonists spend little of the remainder of the film [[StuffBlowingUp blowing stuff up]], [[EpicBattleBoredom kicking ass]], or [[QuestForSex scoring]], though certainly not for lack of trying.

* ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'' does this to an extensive degree. The cover, the trailer, the adverts, and even the first hour or so of gameplay make it look like a [[FollowTheLeader generic modern military shooter]]. However, after that, it reveals itself to be a [[DeconstructorFleet brutal deconstruction]] of the genre, and [[FromBadToWorse it's all]] [[PlayerPunch downhill]] [[WarIsHell from there]]...

* A variation occurs with the first ending of ''Anime/NEEDLESS'', which features three female cast members which would appear later in the series. Thing is, said ending is absolutely ''stuffed'' with fanservice, CutenessProximity situation and bright colors, blatantly presenting the girls as BaitAndSwitchLesbians. The result feels like a crazy mix of gender-inverted ''Boku no Pico'' series and one of the ''Anime/GalaxyAngel'' anime openings. Yet, only one of the girls is a canonical lesbian, and... well, ''nearly'' nothing presented in the ending is featured in the series.

** All Gintama OP qualified. How many times did it showed Gin engaged in epic battles? All the time. Does it ever happen? No. Then again, it's a GagSeries with a TrollingCreator, so is it a surprise?

[[SubvertedTrope Then the series starts hitting the deeper pits of the]] CerebusRollercoaster [[SubvertedTrope in its later (and especially final) arcs]], and the openings fit right in.

* If you put ''VideoGame/TheThreeStooges'' game into your UsefulNotes/NES and power it on, you'll see...the ''Film/Ghostbusters'' logo. Then the Stooges walk in and speak with digitized voices.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. The opening? Standard cute MagicalGirl song, images (including [[ShoutOut references]] to ''Anime/SailorMoon'', CCS, and even Pretty Cure), the works. The problem? Creator/GenUrobuchi is writing -- The series is a rather savage deconstruction. The monsters aren't harmless, people can (and do) die, the aspects of a bunch of young girls fighting horrific {{Eldritch Abomination}}s are fully explored... and oh yeah, the cute mascot appears to be {{Faust}}ian. Notably, the first two episodes didn't have an ending sequence (they do have one on DVD, but it TastesLikeDiabetes), episode 3 was a WhamEpisode and is officially horrifying from the climax on, culminating in the main character floating ''in the mask of Mephistopheles'' during the ending sequence (which is not remotely a standard MagicalGirl song).

Oh, and by the way, [[spoiler:[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Madoka doesn't even become a magical girl until the final episodes]], even though she is prominently shown transformed both in the opening and in promotional material.]]

* The opening for ''Anime/OnePunchMan'' makes it look like a very serious and with Saitama being drawn very dramatically with bulging muscles and a very serious face. The show is really a comedy and most the time Saitama is drawn much simpler with a rather simplistic looking face. There is a lot of big action in the show, but most of it is to just play up the joke about how Saitama is basically invincible and doesn't even have to try.

Some of the bizarre enemies he fights, such as a being that looks like the Joker and a man with a smiling star for a head, never appear in the series proper either.

* ''WarriorsOrochi 2'' treats us with the opening consisting of Cao Pi, Date Masamune, Saika Magoichi and Tachibana Ginchiyo kicking the ass of Orochi army. Come to the game, however, you find out that Masamune still remains with Orochi, not even thinking about joining the heroes.
** Bait and Switch Credits seem to be a staple of the ''Warriors'' series in general, as you never quite get to play out the scenarios depicted in the opening sequences. (At least the WarriorsOrochi opening was more of a HowWeGotHere prologue.)

* ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'''s second opening introduces five new characters, three of which showed up briefly in the first half of the series. This means they're important, right? Not really. Only one was actually important, three of the others played bit parts, and one didn't show up ''at all.''
