* ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' looks like a funny, lighthearted (albeit chaotic) romp about 1930's America; complete with a lovable, happy-go-lucky cast and a series name that means "big ruckus". Hell, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wInHktd7hU theme-song's]] [[EarWorm catchy enough]] to get anyone revved up to laugh at some silly, old-timey antics and kick back with a show that's fun for the whole fami-- SO MUCH BLOOD.

* The Italian [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgXMl7oZiok opening]] for ''WesternAnimation/LadyLovelyLocks'' makes the show seem like a SliceOfLife romance a la ''Manga/CandyCandy'', when romance only comes up a few times in the show and most of the runtime is spent on Duchess Ravenwaves' schemes to take over.

* In the (rather lovely) opening sequence of ''Manga/AoiHana'', Fumi and Akira are depicted as a cheery, loving couple, complete with full nudity. Sure, the girls are extremely close, but never get this far in the series.



** This opening also makes it seem as though Prince Clovis would be a major villain, as the credits end with him smirking at Lelouch and Lelouch glaring back. [[spoiler:He bites it three episodes in.]]
*** That's actually Schneizel, but this is misleading for a different reason; [[spoiler:he doesn't become a major villain until R2]].

* The first opening to ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]'' gives a rather prominent role to Hohenheim, [[spoiler:showing him as a teenager]] as well as providing two extended shots of his present-day self. Despite this, Hohenheim gets ''less than ten seconds'' of screen time until after the opening switches.

* The ''WildArms'' series seems to run on this trope. Every game has an animated sequence that plays when you continue from a save file featuring the characters of the game. Almost none of the things shown in those sequences actually happen in the games.

** Also, though Shadow is featured decently prominently in the first opening, he doesn't even appear until after the second opening has appeared.

** Also, though Shadow is featured decently prominently in the first opening, he doesn't even appear until after the second opening has appeared. This is because the first opening is almost entirely recycled footage from the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wy_XroBwyyE 2001 pilot]], which summarizes the plot for the show as a whole.

* Two openings of ''Anime/NeoRanga'' features all three female protagonists in white {{Stripperiffic}} outfits, having mysterious symbols painted/tatooed on their bodies and wielding stone weapons. None of this happens.

* There are a few of these in the ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'' canon -- the calling card of Film Ventures International, all "featuring" music by Karl Demer -- including ''Master Ninja I'' and ''[=II=]'', ''Stranded in Space'', ''PodPeople'', and ''Space Travelers''. The FVI credits footage for ''Pod People'' and ''Stranded in Space'' are {{egregious}} in how not from the repackaged film they are (''Pod People'' takes its opening credits footage from the 1985 film ''Galaxy Invader''; the source for the ''Stranded in Space'' credit footage is the 1983 film ''Prisoners of the Lost Universe'').

* ''Manga/{{Narutaru}}'''s opening treats us with an [[SoundtrackDissonance upbeat, cheerful opening song]] with the characters drawn in cute grade-school drawing, ending with Shiina and her {{mon}} sleeping together in her bed. At first, it looks like just another adorable mon series in the vein of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' and ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', but MohiroKitoh being the creator and the series is a deconstruction of the genre, the actual series is [[CrapsaccharineWorld nothing]] [[KillEmAll like that]] ...
