Of course, TropesAreNotBad, as used correctly this can be a very clever way of averting TrailersAlwaysSpoil (by not mentioning or downplaying the real main plot) or HypeBacklash (by underselling the quality and letting word of mouth do the rest once it actually is out). But we're a cynical bunch here at TV Tropes, and in the worst examples it'll actually drive away those who would have otherwise enjoyed it, by completely confusing the relevant demographic.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18ya0-OZ58s This trailer]] for Snickers' Super Bowl ad leads you to believe that the guys in it really have Betty White on their team. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3rsaneyeXY In the actual commercial]] she is called "Mike" and is told, "You play like Betty White!" She then eats a Snickers, and after a brief cutaway, she's replaced by a guy, proving that she only appears in the ad to support the {{tagline}}: "You're not you when you're hungry." [[spoiler:And so does Abe Vigoda.]]

** They messed with the fans a little more deliberately with the trailer for Volume 2, altering scenes to disguise their true context. The most obvious is a shot of Ruby cradling Weiss's unconscious body; the trailer makes this look like a serious moment in a real battle, since they're both in their normal fighting clothes and Weiss is holding her sword. This seemingly promised fans that this volume would be DarkerAndEdgier than the first. However, in the actual scene this shot is taken from, it's played completely for laughs, because they're actually just participating in a food fight, wearing their school uniforms, and Weiss is just holding a swordfish instead of a real weapon. While Volume 2 ''did'' eventually deliver some pretty dark moments, and Weiss does get messed up pretty badly later on, it's ''Blake'' who eventually ends up cradling her, and in a completely different shot.

Most obvious is the moment where Ruby cradles an unconscious Weiss, which appears to be serious in the trailer because Weiss is holding her sword, but in the show this is actually a moment from a ''food fight'' and Weiss is holding a swordfish.

* The season 7 trailer for ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' showed both Church and Tex watching over the Red and Blue teams in Valhalla. Neither actually appears in that season. In fact, according to WordOfGod, [[spoiler:the "original" Church actually ''died'' at the end of the last season, so it seems likely Tex did as well.]]
** The difference here is that ''Red vs. Blue'' trailers are more like prelude episodes than actual previews. The season 7 trailer contained no footage from later episodes because it wasn't supposed to. Church and Tex seem to have been inserted into it to encourage WildMassGuessing as to what unseen role they may have had in the season.
* This ended up backfiring a bit for the initial episodes of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', as early trailers made it look like a fairy tale-themed ''WebAnimation/DeadFantasy''. The first few episodes turned out to be more gradual and comedic with little fight scenes, causing some disappointment among fans. Creator/RoosterTeeth admitted they gave a pretty poor showing with that choice a little around the time of the series debut.
