* The ''VideoGame/ConanHyborianAge'' mod for ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' adds new ''Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982''-themed loading screens to the game, one of them being a picture of Valeria; said loading screen is also one of the official illustrations showed in the ''Skyrim Nexus'' mod's page. It's Valeria only appearance in the game.

* Used an interesting and plot-critical example in ''Disney/WreckItRalph''. [[spoiler:Vanellope is featured prominently in the ''Sugar Rush'' cabinet art despite that she's supposedly a glitch and allegedly not supposed to even be in the game. This is what clues Ralph in that King Candy's hiding something and ultimately leads to the latter's plan derailing. In the end it actually proves to be a hint to an even bigger reveal: that Vanellope is the ''true'' ruler of ''Sugar Rush''.]]

* Possibly the most egregious example might be the cover of the direct-to-video horror film [[https://www.pinterest.com/pin/467318898804136201/ ''Demon Possessed'']]. Sorry, guys, she's not even ''in'' this film.

* ''Forge of Empires'' is another one using explicit but untrue claims of pornographic content. One ad on a torrent website touts the "World's First Online Sex Game" and shows a naked CGI woman with her legs held apart by goblinoid hands, her vagina and anus gaping. Following the link leads to a page showing two more realistic naked CGI women in the scissor sexual position, and the signup form.

A few Forge of Empires ads show and promise gay porn instead, making them a rare [[GenderInvertedTrope male example]].

The practice of putting conventionally thought-of as "sexy" women on the box art and in advertisements for video games without her actually ''appearing'' in the game, or only appearing in a very minor, unmemorable role. SexSells, logic be damned. It can be seen as odd if the game features several significant female characters who could have been used instead, but it doesn't really matter who the girl is. She is there only to attract the MaleGaze, due to the assumption that [[MostGamersAreMale most gamers are (heterosexual) men]]. Once he sees what the game is about and decides whether or not to buy it, her job is done.

** Incidentally, this game is published by AeriaGames (among others), which also published the aforementioned ''VideoGame/ScarletBlade''. After Aeria acquired ''Scarlet Blade'', the number of these types of ads started skyrocketing. [[SexSells Coincidence?]] It should also be noted that some of the females appearing in ''Wartune's'' ads do actually appear in the game.

* The ads for ''Machines at War 3'' have both female and male soldiers - but while the dudes are tough marine types wearing military camo gear and angry faces (and at least one decidedly unsexy officer-type person with suitably decorated uniform), the girls are in scuba gear and skintight "tactical" suits with implausible cleavages and sexy come-here-you faces (with lipstick, natch). Notably, this being a top-down RTS with 2D graphics, no soldier is actually visible in great detail during the game.
