* The title of the novel ''The Big Clock'' was just a metaphor--until the creators of TheFilmOfTheBook, apparently thinking the metaphor was [[ViewersAreMorons too subtle]], decided to throw an actual giant clock into the story.

Years after the show ended, its FullyAbsorbedFinale in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' gives a literal meaning to "Batman Beyond": [[spoiler:it's the name of the project Amanda Waller instituted [[TykeBomb to make sure]] there would ''be'' a new Batman.]]

* The ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' series is ostensibly named after the Dead or Alive Tournament featured in the game, however this is a misconception. The game is called "Dead or Alive" due to the fact the game was expected to either sink or save the floundering company TECMO, thus the "Dead or Alive Tournament" is an attempt to justify the title. This makes sense when one considers that "Dead or Alive" is a rather strange name for a tournament in which nobody dies.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' ''Series/DoctorWho'': ** [[Recap/DoctorWho2011CSTheDoctorTheWidowAndTheWardrobe "The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe"]] is an obvious riff on the first [[note]]I know[[/note]] ''[[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia Narnia]]'' book. However, there's still a scene where the Doctor claims his TARDIS is actually a wardrobe, to give an in-universe justification for the title. ** The episode "The Name of the Doctor" has this in the final reveal:
