* Ayn Rand thought her original working title for ''Literature/AtlasShrugged'', ''The Strike'', was this, so she ended up using ''Atlas Shrugged'' instead. [[spoiler:The title is about the people who run stuff like the banks, railroad companies, etc., all going on strike.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The Nelvana animated ''Literature/TheBerenstainBears'' series has "Papa's Pizza" in which Brother and Sister [[spoiler:are throwing a party, but can't figure out what to serve for food because all of their friends have different likes and dislikes.]] Three guesses how the problem is solved, and the first two don't count.

Added DiffLines:

* The third book of ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' has a seemingly spoilery chapter title, so if you read the table of contents before reading, you might be a little dismayed by the chapter title [[spoiler:Lyra and her Death]]. Turns out it's just [[spoiler:that Lyra meets a "personification of her eventual death," which every living being has.]]

* ''Disney/{{Moana}}'': The soundtrack lists "Tala's Deathbed", "Tala Returns", "Sails to Te Fiti", "Te Fiti Restored", "Navigating Home" and "The Return to Voyaging"... basically summarizing the plot and conclusion of the movie.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had several episodes that tried to keep the main villain's identity a secret until the first commercial break (or later), but this was more often than not kneecapped by the titles. Gee, I wonder who's responsible for all the lunacy in "Make 'em Laugh"?
* In-Universe in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian''. When Dave finally finds a replacement narrator when the regular guy gets laryngitis, he forgets to give him a script to read, leading The Dark Lord Chuckles the Silly Piggy to proclaim that they might *not* be the victors this time around. His hopes are immediately dashed when the narrator announces the title of the story; "Dave Beats Chuckles Like a Cheap Suit".



* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has two episode titles that aren't spoilers for the episode in question and [[TitlePlease aren't in the episodes themselves]], but are for the ''major'' plot twists that happened in the last minutes of the previous episode. In this case, the show's irregular scheduling (along with very tight control of new episode names) works to its advantage, but anyone watching them digitally is at a huge risk of accidentally spoiling themselves.
** "Not What He Seems" centers on Dipper and Mabel becoming very suspicious of who Grunkle Stan really is and what he's trying to do, ultimately meeting [[spoiler:Stan's twin brother]]. The next episode title, "[[spoiler:A Tale of Two Stans]]", pretty plainly tells you [[TwinSwitch what was implied]] by the final scene of "Not What He Seems".
** "Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future" [[CliffHanger ends]] with [[spoiler:[[DreamWeaver Bill Cipher]] tearing down the barrier between the physical realm and the dream realm]]. Because of this, the next episode was initially listed under the seemingly-gibberish title "Xpcveaoqfoxso" [[CrazyPrepared just in case episode guides revealed its name early]]. It's actually encoded, and only with a key found in "Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future" can one uncover its real title: "[[spoiler:Weirdmageddon]], Part 1".



* The ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'' episode "Tashy 497" which is [[spoiler:the name the trio chooses for their deceased pet, a combination of the names Tarax, Mushy and #497, which each of them wanted to name it]].

** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E5TheGirlWhoDied "The Girl Who Died"]]: Especially egregious because, apart from companion Clara, the titular "Girl" is the only major female character in the episode.
