* In the first ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia'' game, you're not the prince of Persia -- you gain that title only after saving and marrying the princess. This one is especially deceptive for two reasons: the hero has no other name (making "Prince" the only obvious thing to call him) and all the other games in the franchise ''do'' star actual Persian princes.

* ''Literature/TheDeclineOfTheWest'' is a non-fiction book by [[DichterUndDenker German philosopher]] Oswald Spengler which inspired many people to grief about the coming end of civilization. Spengler wasn't completely happy with the title (which seemed to imply that the western world had to fall, like the Roman empire) and commented that he could've changed the title to "The fulfillment of the West", which would be closer to his intention - i.e. the west transforming to a stable but stagnant empire in the end. The fact that many fans only knew the title and didn't care to actually read the book didn't help.

* ''VisualNovel/PlumbersDontWearTies''. In one scene early on in the "game", John is seen playing air guitar with a plunger while wearing a tie.

* ''VisualNovel/PlumbersDontWearTies''. In one scene early on in the "game", John is seen playing air guitar with a plunger while wearing a tie. The only reason why the game is likely called this is because at the end, Kate says that plumbers don't wear ties when John tells her he's a plumber.



** "The Return of Slade" is not about Slade at all. Slade is only mentioned in the beginning of the episode, cut away to a non-existing fight with a title card that says "Three episodes and a made-for-TV-movie later" it cuts back to them winning, explaining stuff that would have happened if they showed it. And that was the last time he was mentioned. The rest of the episode is about Cyborg and Beast Boy wanting a clown, which quickly devolves into another one of the show's mean-spirited jabs at its haters.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Santa Claus and the Ice Cream Bunny'' is a perfect example of this trope. Both of the titular characters barely get any screen time in the entire film, plus the Ice Cream Bunny has nothing to do with ice cream!
* ''Film/BatmanForever'' is supposed to be a Batman film, but Batman doesn't get much screen time in the film; a majority of it is focused on the Riddler.


Added DiffLines:

* ''One Fine Day'' is a children's book with a very misleading title. While that is the opening line of the book, the entire story is actually a depressing story about a fox who gets his tail cut off and goes out of his way on a frustrating journey just so he can get it sewn back on. There is certainly nothing fine about this fox's day at all!
* ''One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish'' may be the opening line of the book, and the first few pages may be about fish, but the rest of the book has nothing to do with fish at all. The title of the book should have been "Funny Things Are Everywhere", since that is the recurring theme of the book.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Super Puzzle Fighter II: Turbo'' is a game with a title that indicates that it is the turbo edition of a sequel to a super version of a game called "Puzzle Fighter". The thing is, there isn't a game series called "Puzzle Fighter". This is a stand alone game with no predecessors whatsoever. The title is most likely joking over the many updates that ''Street Fighter II'' got and that hardly anyone has heard of that game's original predecessor.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/OneHundredAndOneDalmatiansTheSeries'' may have 101 Dalmatians, but a majority of the show focuses primarily on three pups and a chicken.

* ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'': Considering the movie takes place in America, the eponymous "Princess" isn't actually a princess, she's just a waitress who gets mistaken for one. The "Frog" is the one who's of royal descent, and [[spoiler:the protagonist only becomes a princess after marrying him at the end.]]
* In the Disney film ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', Rapunzel's magic hair never gets tangled, in spite of the many things it is brushed over, tied to, etc.[[note]]This was likely intentional, as the film, like the later Disney/{{Frozen}}, is a GenreParody.[[/note]]
