* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' has spawned a lot of spin-off material, and those titles get into this territory.

* ''Film/BadLieutenantPortOfCallNewOrleans''. This was due to ExecutiveMeddling. Creator/WernerHerzog wanted to call the film ''Port of Call: New Orleans'', but the producers wanted to call the film ''The Bad Lieutenant'' (they had purchased remake rights to the 1992 film ''Film/BadLieutenant'' and wanted to make a franchise). Eventually they came to a compromise and combined both titles into one.

* While books are usually immune to this trope, ''Franchise/StarWars'' novels seem to have it in spades The worst offenders are some of the ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' series, such as ''Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Enemy Lines I: Rebel Dream''. ''Star Wars: Darth Bane: Path of Destruction: A Novel of the Old Republic'' also deserves a mention. Its sequel dropped the final colon.

''Star Wars: Literature/DarkLordTheRiseOfDarthVader'' tries to avoid it by using an em dash on its copyright page.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': The 2012-13 ''Golden Age'' movie adaptation trilogy suffers from a typical case, since it's ''Berserk'' followed by ''The Golden Age Arc #'', followed by the subtitle. Viz Media solves it with a combination of colons and hyphens, resulting in examples like ''Berserk: The Golden Age Arc I - The Egg of the King''.

** Another TieInNovel example would be ''Series/{{Heroes}}: Literature/SavingCharlie: A Novel''. Because [[ViewersAreMorons readers wouldn't know]] [[SarcasmMode a novel from toilet paper without having it spelled out for them]].
