* Chapter 1 of ''{{VideoGame/MOTHER 3}}'' is titled "[[spoiler:Night of the Funeral]]"--guess what shocking news Flint gets halfway through the chapter? Though it's early in the game, it's still a spoiler. And if you take into account that players are likely to [[spoiler:name Hinawa after their own mother]], this can become quite a shock.

Added DiffLines:

* "The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor" by Gabriel Garcia Márquez is actually titled "The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor: [[spoiler:Who Drifted on a Liferaft for Ten Days Without Food or Water, Was Proclaimed a National Hero, Kissed by Beauty Queens, Made Rich Through Publicity, and Then Spurned by the Government and Forgotten for All Time]]". Enough said.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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"?

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/EnemyAtTheDoor'' has an episode titled "From a View to a Death", in which an escaped prisoner is hunted down by the Germans. It's a foregone conclusion that there's going to be a death; recognising the phrase as a reference to fox-hunting makes it clear whose.

* Episode 98 of ''VideoGame/PriPara'' is titled "Playing Three Roles at Once is Hard~Nanon", spoiling the fact that [[spoiler: Non herself is all three members of Triangle]].

Added DiffLines:

* Double-subverted in ''Film/MeAndEarlAndTheDyingGirl''. The movie title certainly points to a DownerEnding but then along comes [[TheNarrator Greg]] reassuring the audience twice that Rachel is going to live. [[UnreliableNarrator But this is not what happens]] ultimately.

* ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' starts off being about a village that battles dragons. One of the inhabitants finds the most fearsome kind of dragon. I'll let you work out the amazing thing he then does.

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'''s fifth chapter is called [[spoiler:''End of the Golden Witch'']] Hm, I wonder what happens there. Just as bad (but only if you happen to know the definition of the term) is the seventh chapter's [[spoiler:''Requiem of the Golden Witch'']]

* The twist in ''InazumaEleven Go Galaxy'' at the end of episode 17, when Storm Wolf's players turn out to be aliens, and a spaceship appears over the stadium, then the plot swerve in the next episode where the storyline turns from an international soccer tournament to to an intergalactic space adventure, is kinda spoiled by the title of the season. Although granted, the promotional material didn't exactly try and hide this either.

** Marvel has also launched titles called ''Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe'' and ''Longshot Saves the Marvel Universe''. Eventually they parodied this trend by opening ''What If: Infinity'' with the title ''Rocket Raccoon Kills the Marvel Universe'' (the events in said title do not happen in the book).

* The sequel to ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' is titled ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''. Seems likely that the [[Comicbook/BuckyBarnes Winter Soldier]] will be showing up and therefore [[spoiler: Bucky didn't die]]. Which is only a spoiler if you know that [[spoiler:Bucky is the Winter Soldier..]].
** Subverted in that it was done intentionally to ditract from the ''real'' twist that [[spoiler:SHIELD had been [[EvilAllAlong infiltrated by HYDRA since the very beginning.]]]]

** Interesting variation: The title of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E12TheStolenEarth "The Stolen Earth"]] gives away a big spoiler, so the producers kept the title a secret until only a few weeks before the episode aired. Of course, that didn't stop ''Magazine/RadioTimes'' from completely spoiling its villain. At least "Daleks" wasn't in the title this time...

** Another example would be "The Song Remains The Same." In the end, [[spoiler:everything goes back to the way it was. All that the Winchesters have changed in the past goes back to how it was originally.]]
