** ''VideoGame/CliveBarkersUndying''. Creator/CliveBarker was brought in partway through development for a rewrite of the story, and he also ended up doing a character's voice. His name was attached to it because ElectronicArts thought it would sell. Unfortunately, despite being a very good game, it didn't -- due in no small part to the sum total of EA's marketing campaign for the game being slapping "Clive Barker's" in front of the title.

* The ''VideoGame/AdventureIsland'' games are titled ''Takahashi-Meijin no Bouken Jima'' (Master Takahashi's Adventure Island) in Japan, after HudsonSoft's spokesman who is barely recognizable as his in-game likeness. The first game was actually titled ''Hudson's Adventure Island'' outside Japan, though it was originally ''VideoGame/WonderBoy'' and not a HudsonSoft game at all.

** Possibly so that Disney has some trademark to fall back on should someone challenge its ownership of a generic term or PublicDomainCharacter's name. For example, they couldn't trademark ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'', so they trademarked "Disney Creator/{{Pixar}} Cars". Likewise, should someone invalidate [[http://tarr.uspto.gov/servlet/tarr?regser=serial&entry=71295828 Disney's trademark on "Pinocchio"]], that wouldn't affect a trademark on "[[Disney.{{Pinocchio}} Disney's Pinocchio]]". Certain TV listings may list ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' as ''Disney's Recess'', but not usually.

*** The Canadian FamilyChannel, formerly the ''de facto'' DisneyChannel for Canada, used to do this; since about 80% of their schedule was Disney shows. This meant that practically ''everything'' was prefaced by "Disney's". This ended when Corus bought the Canadian broadcast rights to Disney content, which included the launch of an actual Canadian Disney Channel.

** A (probably intentional) effect of this is that many people by extension think that he directed ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}'' as trailers advertised it as "from the director of ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas''" and make no effort to tell you that means HenrySelick.
** Maybe not on the TV spots, but the theatrical trailer included Henry Selick's name.
** [=DirecTv=]'s listings took this a step further. "''Tim Burton's WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'': The Pumpkin King gives the yuletide season a touch of Halloween in an animated tale from the mind of Tim Burton. Animated. From a Tim Burton story."
