* Series/PrettyLittleLiars show runner Marlene King is basically the definition of this trope. During Season 3, she stated that [[spoiler: Toby was a legitimate member of the A team,]] when later on it was revealed that he [[spoiler: was only trying to gather information and protect Spencer.]] And then the big one in Season 5, when she stated that [[spoiler:Mona is really dead,]] which was later disproven in the WhamEpisode season finale. She also mentioned that a gay male character would be appearing in Season 5, which never happened.

She also makes liberal use of ExactWords when she could get away with it; for example, promising that a particular episode would reveal who killed Alison (i.e. the mystery that had driven the plot for the previous two seasons and change). It did: [[spoiler: the answer was no one because Alison turned out to be NotQuiteDead.]]

* TheIrateGamer uses a lot of cheap production tricks to make it seem as if a game is more horrible that it really is (slowing down footage in a review of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'', for one).

** LegendOfKorra: Bryke's lying also extends to the sequel as they stated on numerous occasions that Mako and Korra were made for each other and belonged together. They later said that the show would not focus on any romance after Book 2. Then the series finale rolled around having [[spoiler: Korra end up with Asami.]] Bryke posted on their blogs about how they chose this pairing ever since the start of Book 2; emphasizing the point that it was completely their own choice with absolutely no influence from others and that it was not pandering to the fanbase in any way. They also stated that the Mako/Korra romance was never intended to last which completely contradicts their previous statements.

* Throughout the promoting of [=WWE12=], the game's developers, Cory Ledesma, Marcus Stephenson, and "Tank" all said that a multitude of legends, such as [[RandySavage "Macho Man" Randy Savage]], Batista, and most importantly BrockLesnar would not be in the game. However, thanks to people on message boards, it was discovered that all three of these people and more would be in the game, however the developers kept denying that they were, even with the evidence out in the public. The surprise announcement of a remake of the arcade game WrestleFest was also leaked, and they also deny that it exists. Someday, they'll tell the truth. Just don't hold your breath. [[spoiler: Chris Jericho's name has also been found in the game's code, and just like with Lesnar, Batista and Savage before him, the developers deny that he'll be DLC for the game.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Everyone'' at Marvel involved in the debut of ''ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}}'' (and by association, Marvel as a whole) was a lying creator, going so far as to lie during interviews and magazine articles about the true identities and motivations of the protagonists. Justified, of course, to keep TheReveal a secret until it actually debuted.

* ''VidoeGame/NoMansSky'' and lead developer Sean Murray have been caught with numerous blatant lies about features in his game. These include promising extensive multiplayer interaction that the game simply doesn't have the time and code for among other features, such as an extensive trading and faction system, ships that have different features and specialisations, player interactions and siding with specific factions being key to progress and important to develop for certain playstyles, customisation of player appearance, landing on asteroids, a persistent gameworld economy, giant fauna, planetary physics and realistic orbits and being able to simply fly and eventually reach a new system, all of these were specifically and clearly stated by Murray to be in the game, even up to the last few months before release. ''None of these'' are in the released game, leading to a tremendous InternetBackdraft and HypeBacklash over it.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante [=DiMartino=] used to say that there was a high chance that Katara could end up with Zuko but now they act like the pairing was never a possibility. They later said that the Aang/Katara romance was planned from the start and that Avatar was always intended to be only three seasons long. The head writer, Aaron Ehasz has completely debunked these claims. He has revealed in lengthy discussions that the Aang/Katara romance was not originally going to be endgame because Katara was supposed to remain single, the Zuko/Katara romance did indeed had a large chance of becoming canonical as many writers were in favor of it (himself included), and Book 4 ''was planned'' until it was cancelled in favor of a live action trilogy. Bryke probably lie about this aspect because they have a vehement dislike for the Zuko/Katara ship.

* When {{Spider-Man}} unmasked himself in the MarvelUniverse ''Comicbook/CivilWar'', Marvel's Editor-in-Chief JoeQuesada explicitly stated that Spidey's newly public identity would not be undone after a year or so with a "[[CosmicRetcon magic retcon]]." Guess what happened (and ''then some'') about a year later? If you need any help understanding that, read ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'' for answers.
** And we have his "Dead is Dead" policy... which seems to only be enforced for characters he doesn't like or killed off himself, such as Karen Page and Jean Grey. ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, Comicbook/{{Psylocke}}, SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}}, Harry Osborn and even BuckyBarnes have all come back, which makes fans annoyed that he's not allowed the writers to bring Karen and Jean back, since it's obvious he doesn't really mean it.
*** Although between ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' and ''ComicBook/WorldWarHulk'' Joe Quesada admitted that "Dead stays Dead" policy was stupid (since in comics it's like trying to plug a dam after the valley is flooded).
* Creator/BrianMichaelBendis, in preparation for the relaunch of the ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'' comic as ''Ultimate '''Comics''' Spider-Man'', told readers that this would be an all-new way of telling Spider-Man stories, and there would even be a new Spidey... this turned out to be simply metaphorical, as Peter went through certain relationship and status quo changes in the course of a six month timeskip, but remained Spider-Man.
** ...The funny thing about this is that for the first four months, fans used everything from the manga-esque artwork and Peter's new, very feminine appearance (a result of the artwork, not the writing), to proclaim that Bendis was telling the truth and that Peter was actually his female clone [[Comicbook/SpiderWoman Jessica Drew]] in disguise. The return of Jessica in the Ultimate Enemy mini-series finally put this speculation to rest.
*** According to Bendis, this is less Lying Creator and more creator changing his mind. Bendis had been wanting to kill off Peter for a while to make room for a [[AffirmativeActionLegacy "multiracial" Spider-Man]]. He wanted to do it during Ultimatum while they were killing off most of the other heroes, but decided there was still a story or two he wanted Peter to star in. He eventually made good on his promise and created a new Spider-Man, Comicbook/MilesMorales.
