Many works of fiction are named using a [[ElectricBoogaloo "Title Colon Subtitle"]] template. For example, ''[[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney]]'' has this kind of title. Sometimes, however, the subtitle becomes an important part of the original work's identity, and when a sequel is made, a ''second'' subtitle is tacked on after the first (like the sequels ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyJusticeForAll'' and ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations''[[note]]In the original game ''Phoenix Wright'' was originally meant to be the main title of the series, but they were forced to demote the ''Phoenix Wright'' portion as a sort of supertitle to ''Ace Attorney'' when they realized that the fourth would feature a new protagonist[[/note]]). When written out, this looks ridiculous, as you have to use a colon to indicate each separate subtitle. That's ColonCancer; ElectricBoogaloo carried ''way'' too far.

* This trope is applied a NamesTheSame kind of way in ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' with the Rikti. Their ''dialogue'' is riddled with ColonCancer. The entries in StarfishLanguage and EloquentInMyNativeTongue give reasonable examples of this.

** This is par for the course in media tie-in fiction, as also evidenced in ''Franchise/StarTrek'' novels, e.g. ''Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Q Continuum: Q-Strike'', ''Star Trek: The Next Generation: Cold Equations: The Persistence of Memory'' (and there are many more.)
** ''Series/DoctorWho'' novels have mostly been free of this since BBC Books pared them down to just the series and book title but back in the early days of Virgin's original fiction we were treated to titles like ''Doctor Who: The New Adventures: Cat's Cradle: Time's Crucible''.

* Anazon.Com's original Web Series ''Series/AlphaHouse'' has a gaffer who intentionally dropped a light during Sen. Guzman's rebuttal to one of Obama's speeches, because he was told to do it. He was subsequently fired by Guzman's chief of staff, leading to what is known as [[{{Scandalgate}} "Gaffergate"]]. When asked on an interview whom it was, he says he can't say, but it goes high up in the campaign, and is revealed in his book ''A Thousand Watts in Your Face, Bitch: Gaffing the Truth: Why Things Got Like This.'' He even pronounces the colons. It's got them so you know it's important.
