* ''Franchise/TombRaider'''s Lara Croft is about halfway there. The Tomb Raider name is still well-known, but the character has become very recognizable to people who don't play games, which is probably why the movies were called ''Film/LaraCroftTombRaider''.
** The 2nd and 3rd games are also named ''Tomb Raider II Starring Lara Croft'' and ''Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft'' respectively.

* At this point, Captain Falcon is treated more as ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' character (no thanks to him being treated as a MemeticBadass by the fandom) than a ''VideoGame/FZero'' character, with few people knowing anything about the latter series, let alone having played any of the titles.

** Possibly a JustifiedTrope: all the films, possibly save for the [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness first short]] all had a title card featuring the name "The Three Stooges". It's likely the card was meant as a title screen for the series just as much as a credit for the three stars.

* Does anyone even remember the name of the play that gave us Mrs. [[{{Malaproper}} Malaprop]]? No? Okay, it was Joseph Brinsley Sheridan's ''The Rivals''.

Added DiffLines:

* A variant is ''Film/DirtyHarry'', as the sequels don't feature Harry Callahan's alias on the title, and a few countries had a CompletelyDifferentTitle for the original.
