* ''Manga/DragonBall'' became ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' just before Radditz' appearance to emphasize the shift from "freewheeling adventure peppered with the occasional fight scene" to the TropeCodifier of all Shonen Anime that came after, and the anime-only series that followed that was called ''Anime/DragonBallGT'', short for "Grand Tour".

* By the end of the first season of ''{{Cougartown}}'', the producers felt that the name [[ArtifactTitle no longer fit the show's premise]], but couldn't come up with a new name. So in the first episode of the second season, the title card reads ''(Still) Cougartown''. The subtitle became a CouchGag in subsequent episodes - ''(Badly Titled) Cougartown'', ''(Titles Are Hard) Cougartown'', etc.

* The ComicBook/XMen have had this happen twice, and multiple times in the case of one title! The original ''X-Men'' book was officially changed to ''The Uncanny X-Men'' when the famous DaysOfFuturePast arc rolled around. Meanwhile, the 90's book changed it's title to ''New X-Men'' when Creator/GrantMorrison took over as writer to emphasize the new tone of the book. Not long after Morrison left it went back to just being called ''X-Men''. Then in 2008 it was renamed ''X-Men: Legacy'' to emphasize more on the fact that it was less of an ensemble book and moreso focused on a central character and their history in the X-Men universe.

** Back when the show first started, it was called ''NBC's Saturday Night'' (LorneMichaels wanted his show to be called ''Saturday Night Live'' right off the bat, but ABC already had a variety show with that name -- this one had Howard Cosell -- who later hosted the last episode of ''SNL'''s tenth season -- as a permanent host).

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' is a prime example of this. The series became ''Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai'' in the second season. Then the first OVA was renamed ''Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei'' and the second OVA ''Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kira''. A bit of a mouthful, isn't it? Also, each arc has a different name, which surely doesn't help relieve the confusion of new audiences. The sequel, ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' is sometimes accompanied by the subtitle of "Franchise/WhenTheyCry 3", but there's hardly any relationship between Higurashi kai and this theoretical third season.
