* The poster for ''Film/CampNowhere'' (as seen on that page) advertises a bunch of buxom, scantily clad supermodels as a part of the cast, but they're nowhere to be found in the movie itself. Kind of an odd case since it's ostensibly a junior high kids' movie.

* The cover art for HentaiOujiToWarawanaiNeko depicts two blushing, bikini-clad [[CatGirl catgirls]] [[SkinshipGrope snuggling suggestively]]. Though the two girls in question '''do''' appear in the anime, the scene depicted never happens, neither of them is a CatGirl outside of fantasy sequences (and never both at once), and they are not in a sexual relationship (though one of them might like to be). Also, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking the younger of the two girls is]] [[EmotionlessGirl incapable of expressing her emotions]] [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor due to her wish]], and as such shouldn't be able to blush.

* 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.

* Like ''League of Angels'' above, browser-based games such as ''Blood and Jade'' blatantly use video footage from [[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive Dead or Alive: Xtreme 2]]. No attempts to hide or alter Kasumi, Hitomi, or Tina in the advertisements. Their regular adds, however, do feature scanty clad women who exist in the game and act as party members.

The practice of putting a 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 especially 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.

* A male, non-{{Fanservice}} example. Ads for ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' have been using pictures of YouTube's [[https://www.youtube.com/user/TheJWittz TheJWittz]], specifically a cartoon depiction of him that appears in the thumbnails of his videos.

** And it's no longer exclusive to women - companies have used artwork of ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' characters to advertise their games, among other (copyrighted) titles.

* Zig-zagged in the case of ''VideoGame/RuneScape''. NPC heroine Linza the Blacksmith was ''intended'' to appear in-game as a fellow adventurer like the player, complete with her own quest series, but all of her quests ended up in DevelopmentHell, so for years the she only ever appeared in advertisements and the odd cameo, flaunting her cleavage and bare arms. In May 2016 the quest "Kindred Spirits" was finally green-lit to star Linza... [[InvertedTrope and was advertised as a quest about the Barrows Brothers instead]].
