* The promo art for the WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse fanfic ''Fanfic/SelaginellaLepidophylla'' has Rose Quartz hilariously carrying numerous tubs of ice cream and making a "cool" pun. But in context, this scene leads to one of the most heart wrenching scenes of the story so far.

* Ernie Kovaks parodied this trope with a series of "more sex and violence" book covers, showing ''Little Women'' as ladies of ill repute, ''Peter Rabbit'' as a gangster, and a Webster's unabridged dictionary with a picture of a silhouette of a lady behind a window blind, with blurbs all over the cover such as "Unexpurgated!", "Four Letter Words!", and "Nothing Left Out!".

** ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': In one episode, Candace immediately dismisses books based on their covers; when Linda, her mom, says not to judge a book by its cover, Candace argues that books have covers to capture people's interest, and then asks why she picked these books. Linda begrudgingly admits that it was because they looked interesting, and leaves.

* 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]].
