A form of unintentional [[TitleConfusion title confusion]] that occurs when a story's [[NamingConventions naming conventions]] confuse the audience about what the characters' names are, or [[RoleCalled who certain titles refer to]]. Most frequently, people will assume that the title of the work is the name of the main character.

This trope's title originated with the character [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]], whose comic was originally published under the same name by Fawcett Comics. Following a lawsuit by Creator/DCComics which alleged that Captain Marvel infringed upon the copyrights of Franchise/{{Superman}}, Fawcett went out of the comics business and their trademarks lapsed. Nineteen years later, DC revived Captain Marvel. Ironically, by this point, however, Creator/MarvelComics had already created [[ComicBook/CaptainMarVell a new character]] and publication titled ''Captain Marvel''. Due to issues with copyright and trademark law, the character could continue to be called Captain Marvel, but any magazines or merchandise would be titled ''Shazam!'' After [[ComicBook/{{New 52}} the 2011/2012 relaunch of DC]], Captain Marvel is now officially named "Shazam" because of this.
