* On a general level, this trope is partially why [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil certain]] [[{{Fansub}} formats]] of anime releases typically don't include episode titles in file names. After all, long show title + long episode title + a few subfolders = file paths exceeding 255-character length limits on some operating systems. * ''{{Genshiken}}'' has a RunningGag of naming its chapters with a very verbose and academic-sounding title. The chapter where the group goes shopping on Akihabara, for example, is called "Comparative Classification of the Modern Youth Through Consumption and Entertainment".

* A good number of chapters from the ''HayateTheCombatButler'' manga have really long titles. * The title of episode six of ''HeIsMyMaster'' is absurdly long. The full title is "The Sawatari Izumi Contest Series!! A Daring Test of Courage!! An Express Train to a Secret Hotsprings in the Northeast, a Mother-in-law Murdered in the Mist, a Madonna Teacher from an Elite Family Burning with Desire as They Watch a Housewife Battle For Control of Her Troubled Mansion!!". Episode five's title (which essentially describes the premise of the series) isn't much shorter. * In one episode of ''{{Un Go}}: Inga Nikki'', Inga suggested an alternative name for the specials: "Ano Hi Mita Boku no Imouto wa Tantei nanka Zenzen Suki ja naindakedo Tomodachi wa Kanji ga Yomeru". * {{Kyoto Animation}}'s recent (Jan 2009) anime. Behold ''Sora o Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai'' (loosely ''The World Reflected in the Eyes of a Girl who Looks Up at the Sky''). Fortunately, said anime is a remake/continuation of the studio's earlier {{OVA}} titled ''{{Munto}}'' and its sequel, which allows the fans to call the series ''Munto the TV'' instead. * All of the {{Baccano}} episode titles are long and overly descriptive. * Taku Iwasaki had a ''lot'' of fun thinking up song titles for the ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' soundtrack.

* Although the episode titles in ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' tend to be average length (the longest being episode 11: Graceful and Ruthless- The One who Picks the Flower), the songs used within the show and movie are needlessly long and have a habit of lacking any sort of relevancy to the lyrics. Just to name a few: Inhuman Illusory Soul Fusion Magic, The Absolute Destiny Apocalypse with Universal Gravitation, A Confessional Elevator- The Daydreamer's Troublesome Insect (Imaginary Bad Bug), Magical Lantern Butterfly Moth 16th Century, An Immortal Emperor in a Mundane Universe, The Natural Compatriot's Palace Perspective Book, We Who Have Cast Ourselves Aside Become Fallen Angels, Cradled in the Grave of the World in the Hands of the World, Rose Naked Body ~ Shura Physical Constellation 45 Nebula, and The First Duelist may be Reborn! The Never-Ending History of the Middle Ages.

* The ''Horace and Morris'' (with ''Dolores'') picture books by James Howe and Amy Walrod follow this format. The premiere installment, ''Horace and Morris but Mostly Dolores'', isn't too bad. However, latter installments are ''Horace and Morris Join the Chorus (But What About Dolores?)'' and ''Horace and Morris Say Cheese (Which Makes Dolores Sneeze!)''
