* 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.''

* The opening credits to the [[ShowWithinAShow Itchy and Scratchy cartoons]] in ''TheSimpsons'' promises that 'they fight and bite' over animation of the two hitting each other with weapons. In fact in the vast majority episodes they don't ''fight'' at all: Scratchy is minding his own business when Itchy brutally attacks and kills him for no reason at all.
* The Japanese opening of ''TransformersAnimated'' barely features Lugnut while prominently showing minor characters Arcee and Ironhide apparently on Earth and fighting alongside our heroes - indeed, Arcee is shown [[DesignatedGirlFight fighting Blackarachnia]] underwater (which, it should be noted, she is physically incapable of doing in-universe, since she is part organic). It also shows various fight scenes around the world, when in fact all the scenes on Earth take place in an around Detroit. Despite all that, it's ''still'' [[SpoilerOpening full of spoilers]]([[spoiler: Longarm Prime,]] anyone?).

** Then there's the shot where Dipper and Mabel are reading on their room and everything, including them, starts rising in the air. "Not What He Seems" has gravity anomalies of that sort happening once in a while, but only one ever happens with the twins in their rooms, and at that time they're sleeping soundly and don't even notice.

* ''{{Suikoden}}'' is guilty of this in a few videos. The most poignant would be the opening video of ''SuikodenIII'', which has, among other things, Geddoe slicing up some flying creatures from a cliff-side, and Hugo fighting against Hallec, an ally who joins him without any sort of fight in-game.

** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'': The first opening ends with a climatic battle between Heero and Zechs in outer space. That does eventually happen very late in the show, but not in the way portrayed here. Also there's a shot of Relena walking around a destroyed city, where no cities were really destroyed during the series at all. The second opening doesn't have any misleading details like this, so the errors of the first OP are often attributed to rewrites that happened during Wing's troubled production.

** Though the destroyed city later appears in ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz Endless Waltz]]'', and ''Episode Zero'' reveals that Relena was there, too, finally giving a belated explanation for that scene.
