* A lot of scientific papers fall trap to this due to requiring extreme precision to even be considered by most journals. Some particularly egregious examples include [[{{Squick}} "An In-Depth Analysis of a Piece of Shit: Distribution of Schistosoma mansoni and Hookworm Eggs in Human Stool"]] ([[http://journals.plos.org/plosntds/article?id=10.1371/journal.pntd.0001969 Yes, that actually exists]]), [[http://nar.oxfordjournals.org/content/15/1/51.abstract "The nucleotide sequence of a 3.2 kb segment of mitochondrial maxicircle DNA from Crithidia fasciculata containing the gene for cytochrome oxidase subunit III, the N-terminal part of the apocytochrome b gene and a possible frameshift gene; further evidence for the use of unusual initiator triplets in trypanosome mitochondria"]] and the extremely [[{{Irony}} ironically titled]] [[http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2859422/ "Are Shorter Article Titles More Attractive for Citations?

[[folder:Light Novels: Or, Works of prose, originating from the aforementioned State of Japan, which are written in a easily read style in order to target audiences comprising teenaged or young adult persons]]
* ''LightNovel/OreNoImoutoGaKonnaNiKawaiiWakeGaNai'' ("There's No Way My Little Sister Can Be This Cute") is said to have started the trend of long light novel titles.
* ''Moshi Kōkō Yakyū no Joshi Manager ga Dorakkā no "Management" o Yondara'' ("What if the Female Manager of a High School Baseball Team Read Drucker's ''Management''?") aka ''Literature/{{Moshidora}}'' - the title card for the anime and the cover of the novel both write the title so that it splits into two lines with "Moshi" and "Dora" at the beginning of each, thus the abbreviation. The anime title card highlights this.
* ''LightNovel/OreNoKanojoToOsananajimiGaShurabaSugiru'', or ''Caught In the Carnage Between My Girlfriend and My Childhood Friend''.
* ''LightNovel/OniiChanDakedoAiSaeArebaKankeiNaiYoNe'', or ''He's my brother, but as long as we're in love it shouldn't matter''. So long, Creator/{{Funimation}} shortened it to ''[=OniAi=]''.
* ''LightNovel/MondaijiTachiGaIsekaiKaraKuruSouDesuYo'', or ''The Problem Children Come from Another World?'' (Officially translated as the much longer ''Problem Children are Coming from Another World, Aren't They?'')
* ''LightNovel/LoveChunibyoAndOtherDelusions'', as well as the the original title ''Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai'', or ''Regardless of my adolescent delusions, I want a date!''.
* ''LightNovel/BokuWaTomodachiGaSukunai'', or ''I Don't Have Many Friends''.
* ''LightNovel/OreNoNounaiSentakushiGaGakuenLoveComeOZenryokuDeJamaShiteiru'', or ''My Mental Multiple-Choice Power Is Completely Ruining My School Romantic Comedy''.
* ''LightNovel/YuushaNiNarenakattaOreWaShibushibuShuushokuOKetsuiShimashita'', or ''I Couldn’t Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job''.
* ''LightNovel/YahariOreNoSeishunLoveComeWaMachigatteiru'', or ''My Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong, as I Expected''. (shortened to ''My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU[[note]]Situation Normal, All Fucked[=/=]Fouled Up[[/note]]'' when brought overseas)
* ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon''. That's the localized title, but the Japanese ''Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka?'' is even longer.
* Creator/KazumaKamachi was asked to write a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover of all his works for the tenth anniversary of ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''. Naturally, he called it ''[[LightNovel/TheCircumstancesLeadingToWaltrautesMarriage The Circumstances Leading to]] [[LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex a Certain Magical]] [[LightNovel/HeavyObject Heavy]] [[LightNovel/TheZashikiWarashiOfIntellectualVillage Zashiki Warashi’s]] Simple Killer Princess's Marriage''. The same author's next work is ''Saikyō wo Kojiraseta Level Kansuto Kenseijo Beatrice no Jyakuten'', or ''The Weakness of Beatrice the Level Cap Holy Swordswoman That Made Being the Strongest Even More Trouble'', and the next one after that is ''My Vampire Older Sister and Zombie Little Sister Have Gotten Into a Pretty Serious Fight…Only in Virtual Reality Though''.
* ''Ore ga Ojousama Gakkou ni "LightNovel/ShominSample" Toshite Rachirareta Ken?''. The blue link is only in the middle because the full title broke {{this wiki}}. Yes, the title was shortened in ThisWiki because the original title broke it.
%% * It's been a recent disturbing trend in Light Novels, specifically, to name with intentionally long titles, even if it's awkward - if your novel catches light-novel-magic and becomes popular, then often times the fans will just shorten it to something else.
