* And now to [[MoodWhiplash change the mood here for a second]] - this trope was partially the reason why a Honda-brand gas-powered generator was recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in 2014. The product's owner's manual had a chance of having missing or duplicated pages, running the risk of users missing important information about using the product. ''Whoops.''

* The manual for the Wii game ''Anubis II'' states that you can throw bombs by moving the Wiimote in a throwing motion while holding B. You actually need to hold the A button. Perhaps more egregious is the manual from the extremely similar ''VideoGame/NinjabreadMan'', by the same company. It states that you can throw bombs by moving the Wiimote in a throwing motion while holding A...which would be fine, except that bombs do not exist in this game.

* A recipe book for an air fryer has some recipes that either have listed ingredients that are never used or the instructions calls for ingredients that is not listed in the recipes. One chicken recipe has the instructions calling for a turkey.

* ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' listed the beta versions of many game units in early prints of the manual. For example, it claimed that Mutalisks shoot acid, and queens and defilers have attacks. Cutscenes still depict Mutalisks spitting acid clouds.

* The manual for the tie-in game ''[[WesternAnimation/SpiritStallionOfTheCimarron Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron]][[OverlyLongTitle : Forever Free]]'' contains bios for all the human characters. However among them is a bio for one "Bill", who, according to it, is [[BigBad Snakefinger's]] lackey, and performs various tasks such as scouting out new herds of horses, and cleaning Snakefinger's cabin. [[DummiedOut Bill is nowhere to be found within the game.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The instruction manual for the first ''Franchise/MegaMan'' game says that pressing up on the D-pad will make Mega Man jump (the A button actually does this) and that pressing down will make Mega Man crouch (something Mega Man would be able to do until Marvel vs Capcom'').

Added DiffLines:

* The instruction manual that came with retail copies of 2005's ''VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefrontII'' were obviously recycled from the previous game. Old weapons such as the Jet Trooper's EMP Launcher that were removed in the sequel were still listed in the manual.

Added DiffLines:

* Nearly a quarter of the manual for the computer game adaptation of ''TabletopGame/Twilight2000'' consists of errata, including a long list of skills, equipment and options that have been removed. Then, the game itself contains a readme file which lists errata to the errata (and it's inaccurate in some spots--for example, listing "removed" skills that are still in the game.)

* ''[[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork Mega Man Network Transmission]]'' appears to have suffered a BlindIdiotTranslation from the Japanese version, at the hands of either Altavista Babelfish or someone given a Japanese-English dictionary without knowing any Japanese nor anything about the game. This is particularly evident in the character descriptions. They managed to misspell several characters' names, mention names of other supposed characters who don't actually exist (common nouns in the Japanese text seem to have been misinterpreted as proper names), and use a picture of Bug Style [=MegaMan=] for Chaud. And Bug Style doesn't even appear in this game.

** In the weapon section, it also lists "Player" with the description "[[BlatantLies Shoots in 8 directions]], [[BlindIdiotTranslation waves wires]]" and a picture of the main character. You can only fire in eight directions in the overmap stages, and the picture was from a 2D stage. That, mixed with it's odd location in the middle of a list of collectible items, lead some players to think it was a hidden item.
