*** Justified with the Progenitors: their colons seem to replace either the verb (e.g. "That amount: not enough.") or allow for a qualifier (e.g. "Courage: to Question", a base name). The Progenitors do EloquentInMyNativeTongue too, as seen in the text-based stuff that comes up when you meet certain criteria...

* ''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.
