* The cover (and title) of Throbbing Gristle's [[http://brainwashed.com/common/images/covers/ir0008.jpg 20 Jazz Funk Greats]] says it all.
* Music/TroutMaskReplica by Music/CaptainBeefheart: Beefheart wears a carp's head on the album cover, not a trout's one.
* Music/WereOnlyInItForTheMoney by Music/FrankZappa: From judging the album cover and the art work within you might expect this album to be an entire musical and lyrical parody of Music/TheBeatles' ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'', but it's not. The only real similarity is that ''A Day In The Life'', just like ''The Chrome Plated Megaphone Of Destiny'' are both the closing track, both closing on one note slowly fading out at the end.

* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': Chapter [[spoiler:13]]'s title is [[spoiler:The Death of Asuka Langley Sohryu]]. No, it does not come to pass.
** It's more of a case of ExactWords. [[spoiler: She gets engaged to Shinji, so her ''name'' dies and is replaced with his.]]
* The header for ''Fanfic/KnowledgeIsPower'' says "Humour/Romance", but there's not much of either.
* The cover for a [[WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH Secret of NIMH]] fanfic, ''Secret of the Stone'', depicts Mrs. Brisby wearing her iconic amulet. [[spoiler:Not only does she never use the amulet in the story, she is not even the main character.]]

* Being an InteractiveComic, there's no way that the author of ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'' would be able to perfectly predict the direction the story would take from the get-go. Regardless, the events taking place on the [[http://www.bogleech.com/awfulhospital/poster.png cover page]] are vastly different from the actual story, the most notable difference being the presence of a character who wouldn't be met until over '''600 pages''' in.

''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' has a very deliberate example - the pre-intro scene of episode 31 suggests that the series WILL be adapting the Garlic Jr arc, a much maligned filler arc; the intro for the episode even uses scenes from said arc. [[spoiler: The majority of said episode focuses on Krillin and his girlfriend. Garlic Jr literally lasts less than a minute before being assimilated by Mr Popo]].

* The title of ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' is a big lie: [[spoiler:there are 11 relevant characters in the game and three doors with a 9, making it 11 doors]].
* {{Inverted|Trope}} with the cover of ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'', which has Sigma with grey-ish hair and a shining right eye instead of black hair and a normal-looking eye. [[spoiler:This foreshadows the fact that you're playing as his 67-year-old self, a major reveal of the plot.]]

* Two examples involving YA fantasy heroines:
** The title character of ''Literature/EllaEnchanted'' is described as having black hair, yet the covers of almost every edition give her medium or light brown hair instead, which Gail Carson Levine [[https://gailcarsonlevine.com/blog/2010/08/04/cover-musings/ has complained about.]]
** In Robin McKinley's ''Literature/BeautyARetellingOfBeautyAndTheBeast'', Beauty's hair is described at first as "neither blonde nor brown," and brightens into "a light coppery red" as she matures. The cover of the 1993 edition portrays her with dark brown hair instead. Since it also has her wearing a yellow dress, it seems likely that the artist was trying to evoke Disney's [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Belle]].
