* When it came to ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels'' after people found out it was supposed to be the sequel to the first game, a lot of people not only blamed Nintendo of America for rejecting the game, but they also believed that the company thought that the game was "too hard for Americans" and decided to localize ''VideoGame/DokiDokiPanic'' instead as ''Super Mario Bros'' sequel. While Nintendo of America did have concerns about the difficulty of the original ''Super Mario Bros 2'', they never outright said that the game was too hard; their big concern about the game was it would not sell well because [[MissionPackSequel it was just the first game again.]]

* Thanks to Creator/LeijiMatsumoto's movie ''[[Anime/CaptainHarlock Arcadia of My Youth]]'', Creator/JohannWolfgangVonGoethe became the author of a new famous quote 150 years after his death. Never mind that you will never find anything remotely like the "His youth was Arcadia" line in original German, and most researchers [[https://www.reddit.com/r/anime/comments/2urafv/goethe_quote_from_arcadia_of_my_youth/ agree]] that it is a textbook case of Matsumoto's taking an ArtisticLicense with the (no longer identifiable) source material.

* A popular screenshot shows Light's famous "Just as planned." line in ''Anime/DeathNote'' getting translated into [[TooLongDidntDub "Just according to keikaku"]] with a translator's note saying "Translator's note: Keikaku means plan." This isn't from any actual fansub of the series, although the screenshot's said popularity probably owes to the fact that it isn't [[PoesLaw far from the truth with a lot of fansubs.]]

** The notion of Phoenix Wright accusing an animal of murder is something many people often wrongly attach to the series. Phoenix Wright, or any other protaganist attorney for that matter, has never pointed the finger at any animal. However the canon DLC case of [[PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Dual Destinies]] does feature the ''police'' believing that an orca killed it's owner. However, not only do the police and the prosecution office not take it seriously as a murder at first (considering it the accurate "accidental death due to oversight over taking care of an animal" instead), Phoenix has to go out of his way to prove that there's a possible human criminal aspect involvement in the victim's death in order to get it be considered for a criminal trial case.

The confusion likely stems from the fact that Phoenix has had to ''[[MakeTheDogTestify cross-examine]]'' animals on multiple occasions.
** The single word most commonly associated with this franchise is '''''"OBJECTION!"''''' Within the games themselves, it is stylized as '''''"Objection!"''''' This applies to all the [[BigWordShout Big Word Shouts]] used in the series, with people erroneously using AllCaps when quoting them.

Subtrope of CommonKnowledge. See also DeadUnicornTrope, CowboyBebopAtHisComputer, {{Mondegreen}}, GodNeverSaidThat. If the misassociated line is eventually co-opted into the source as a sort of ShoutOut to the confusion, it becomes an AscendedMeme. If the line is correct but lack of context changes the meaning, or if the line is chopped up to change its meaning, it is a QuoteMine. If the quote and the misquote both occur in the same medium, there is an UnreliableNarrator or possibly a FlipFlopOfGod. If the quote becomes the only thing associated with a person, it's a case of NeverLiveItDown. This trope can be extended to {{Iconic Item}}s the character never actually had, such as Holmes' deerstalker. For tropes [[IThoughtItMeant actually about beaming characters up]], see TeleportersAndTransporters.

** Despite what many fans think, [[Anime/DragonBallZ Freeza]] never once uttered the phrase "This isn't even my final form." The actual quote is "I still have two transformations left", which he says while fighting in his second form.

* While the MemeticMutation "Do you want ants? Because that's how you get ants" was used in the first episode of {{WesternAnimation/Archer}}, it wasn't Sterling Archer who said it, despite the memes of it using his face. He simply said "This is how you get ants", while the full quote was used by Mallory, Archer's mother

** "Lead on, Macduff", which is a common misquotation of Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'s "Lay on, Macduff", often used in a completely different context from how it is used in the play. Macbeth is challenging Macduff to attack him in the final scene, threatening that it will be no holds barred. Macduff then fights Macbeth, killing him off-stage.

(''Theatre/{{Fiorello}}'' makes one character's last name "Macduff" for no better reason than to use the misquotation.)
