* The song "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee tends to be associated with Music/JustinBieber in the Anglosphere instead of its original artists. This case is more extreme than most others, as the song in question became a major hit after Bieber's involvement in a remix (the original didn't have Bieber at all), and the original artists still sing on the remix. Unfortunately, the song's ensuing popularity coupled with Bieber's inability to speak Spanish has lead to much disappointment at his concerts.

to:

* Alan Rudolph's 1977 film ''Welcome to L.A.'' sometimes has the direction mistakenly credited to producer Creator/RobertAltman. Understandable since Rudolph clearly picked up a lot of stylistic touches from his mentor (like a HyperlinkStory) as well as borrowed some members of Altman's [[ProductionPosse stock company of actors]].

* With the exception of ''Film/TheShining'', which everybody knows as the work of Creator/StanleyKubrick, all of the films based on Creator/StephenKing novels are more popularly associated with him than their directors. Unsurprising if you look at [[BilledAboveTheTitle what happens to his novels]]... With that in mind it makes one wonder how ''Literature/TheLangoliers'' isn't commonly affiliated with its director considering the DVD cover where, in massive ''outlined, metallic'' letters, the name of Creator/TomHolland can be seen clear as day, taking over two-thirds of the credits.

to:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is far more associated with Creator/GeorgeRRMartin, the author of [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire the novels]] [[AdaptationDisplacement the show was based on]], than with its actual co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.



* The wildly popular funk throwback "Uptown Funk" is officially released under Mark Ronson's name, but (outside the U.K.), most people consider it a Music/BrunoMars song despite him being a featured artist. It's somewhat understandable considering Bruno Mars has established himself as a specialist in {{Genre Throwback}}s, with his "Treasure" being a funk disco track in the same vein.
* Likewise, many Music/DavidGuetta songs are less associated with the French producer than the guest singer ("Sexy Bitch": Music/{{Akon}}; "Titanium": Music/{{Sia}}; "Without You": Music/{{Usher}}).

* "The Hanging Tree" from ''Film/TheHungerGamesMockingjayPart1'' is almost universally considered a Creator/JenniferLawrence song, as she sings it in character in the movie, even though it was released under James Newton Howard's name. That didn't stop ''Billboard'' themselves from hyping the song's chart performance as a Lawrence song while relegating Howard to a footnote.
* Likewise, many Music/DavidGuetta songs are less associated with the French producer than the guest singer ("Sexy Bitch": Music/{{Akon}}; "Titanium": Music/{{Sia}}; "Turn Me On" and "Hey Mama": Music/NickiMinaj; "Without You": Music/{{Usher}}).
* While most of Music/CalvinHarris's songs are often seen as his songs, some of them are more associated with the featured artist, namely his collaborations with Music/EllieGoulding ("I Need Your Love" and "Outside") and Music/{{Rihanna}} ("This Is What You Came For"; "We Found Love" isn't an example as it ''is'' officially a Rihanna song).




to:

* The ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' series is always associated first and foremost with Katsuhiro Harada, even though he only started to direct the series with ''Tekken Tag Tournament''.

* The Film/JamesBond films are rarely ever viewed as the works of anyone other than Albert Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, and later Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. If you want to see a Bond fans head explode, inform them that ''Film/{{Goldeneye}}'' and ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'' was directed by the same guy, Martin Campbell.

* ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'' is produced by Creator/GeorgeLucas and comes from Lucasfilm Animation, so naturally, Lucas' name overshadows that of director Gary Rydstrom.
