* Lampshaded InUniverse in ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKidDogDays'', where Greg says ''[[ChromosomeCasting there aren't even any women]]'' in the book he's reading despite the cover begging to differ.

* Lampshaded InUniverse in ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKidDogDays'', where Greg says ''[[ChromosomeCasting there aren't even any women]]'' in the book he's reading despite the cover begging to differ. He's sure that the guy who made the cover has never read the book.

* The teaser for ''Literature/BoredOfTheRings'' talks of Frito's seduction by a "voluptuous elf maiden" who does not appear in the book at all.

Added DiffLines:

** The sequel, ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' takes this up a notch, with Hawkeye appearing in the comic-con teaser poster, but not showing up in the final film.

* A particularly {{egregious}} case with the ''VideoGame/{{Spellforce}}'' series. Even with the female characters who do appear in the game, their [[{{Stripperific}} choice of clothing]] doesn't reflect the mostly modest clothing and armour choices worn by the character, their party and NPC's.

* Averted in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]''. The art for the various character classes represents possible bodies that player characters can [[BodySurf randomly]] [[DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist respawn]] into if they belong to that character class. It's not always obvious due to the text-based nature of the game, but playing Nexus for any length of time means that you've met most or all of the people from the art.

* Another infamous male example is the box art for lesser-known space-shooter Phalanx - which inexplicably featured [[https://www.destructoid.com//ul/471030-Header-noscale.jpg an old, bearded man with a banjo.]]

** However, one ad for Wartune features what is quite obviously a ''[[WorldOfWarcraft Blood Elf]]'', with red hair, extended eyebrows and glowing green eyes. Seems they've taken a page from ''Evony'' above.

* Kelly Brook was used to advertise 'Deathtrap Dungeon' whilst wearing an overly-sexualized bondagey outfit. Not only did this have nothing to do with the actual game, the game itself was an ''InNameOnly'' version of a ''Literature/FightingFantasy'' book of the same name.
