* Dang near the entire SierraOnLine catalog, starting with VideoGame/KingsQuest, the success of which caused them to shoehorn the word "Quest" into all of their franchises possible, even when it wouldn't really make sense (''VideoGame/PoliceQuest'', anyone?). In fact, they were sued when they named their second fantasy series Hero's Quest (Already the name of a fantasy board game), before changing its name to VideoGame/QuestForGlory. A few series managed to avoid it, but the only long lasting one was the VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry games.

Incidentally, an easier way to come up with a title is "The Dark (Noun)". For instance: ''The Dark Cushion'', ''The Dark Burrito'', ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'', etc. Compare MadLibThrillerTitle.

* WickedLovely itself escapes this trope (being more of a WordSaladTitle), as does Ink Exchange. The we have Fragile Eternity, Radiant Shadows, and Darkest Mercy.
* Steven Erikson tends to avert this with his MalazanBookOfTheFallen series by using more descriptive and specific titles: ''Memories of Ice'', ''The Bonehunters'', ''Dust of Dreams''. He does seem fond of the '<blank> of <blank>' construction, though.
