* 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.

Contrast SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer, as movies tend to have the exact opposite problem. See also WolverinePublicity. Compare ContemptibleCover.

This trope is a recurring feature of {{Clickbait Gag}}s, specifically when mocking the trend to put attractive women in Website/YouTube thumbnails. Contrast SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer, as movies tend to have the exact opposite problem. See also WolverinePublicity. Compare ContemptibleCover.

It's Valeria only appearance in the game.

* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] InUniverse in Piers Anthony's ''VideoGame/{{Xanth}}'' novel ''Demons Don't Dream'' - Dug's friend gives him a game, and Dug figures that the attractive lady on the front (Nada Naga) is just put on there to sell the game to poor sops who think she'll be in it. Turns out she is, in fact, actually in it, as the character who introduces the player to the game and as one of the possible companion characters.
* Lampshaded InUniverse in the fourth ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKid'' book, where Greg says ''[[ChromosomeCasting there aren't even any women]]'' in the book he's reading despite the cover begging to differ.

* The chapter title pages for ''Manga/{{Gantz}}'' very often feature a hot girl in various states of undress. It's pretty common for her to be absent from the actual chapter, though.

to:

* ''Film/DeadEndDriveIn'' has a downplayed example. Publicity for the film, and articles or book entries about it, will often have a picture of a woman who is topless other than a metal bra with huge cow horns over her breasts. Although she occasionally appears in the film, she's a background extra who is never even the main focus of a shot.

* Ads for ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire]]'' feature Luna as the attractive female character of the game, but in the game, the characters are simply attached to menus and text boxes explaining the basic game mechanics, with no further plot to speak of.

Added DiffLines:

* The first two ''VideoGame/FIFASoccer'' games also had male, non-fanservice examples. Every instalment of the series has featured at least one footballer prominently on the front cover, but the first two games didn't actually include any licensed players at all, so the players on the covers of those games - David Platt and Erik Thorstvedt respectively - didn't actually appear in them.
