** Which is a completely hilarious and memorable [[spoiler:{{subver|tedTrope}}sion. That is, if you're any good at Portal]]. ** The game practically shouts the title at you when you reach it. Aside from the chapter title being prominently shown in the middle of the screen the two main characters say a variation on it and you get an achievement with the same title. Of course, it's hardly a surprise that it was eventually going to happen, given how unsubtly Wheatly talks about it beforehand.

** Some other gems from the original Japanese are Episode 24 [[spoiler: "Naru's Cry! Nephrite Dies for Love"]], 33 [[spoiler:"The Last Sailor Senshi! Sailor Venus Appears"]], and most JustForFun/{{egregious}}ly, 45 [[spoiler: "The Sailor Senshi Die! The Tragic Final Battle"]]. The English dub changed these to "A Friend in Wolf's Clothing," "Sailor V Makes the Scene," and "Day of Destiny"[[note]]which was episodes 45 and 46 chopped up with a meat cleaver with the remnants sewn together[[/note]]. They got better with this in the later seasons, although titles like [[spoiler:"When the Galaxy Perishes! The Sailor Senshi' Final Battle"]] and [[spoiler:"Disappearing Stars! The End of Uranus and Neptune"]] are still pretty obvious.

Well, that's the dub line. Slightly less funny with the Japanese "Will you survive?"

** Downplayed in the case of an early episode, which has Fumu receiving a love letter written on a seashell, apparently written by someone named Kine. She wonders who Kine is. A title card saying "[[InterspeciesRomance The Fish Who Loved Me]]" immediately pops up. Kine is not revealed to be a talking fish until two and a half minutes later, although if the audience were aware that he also appears some of the games they'd be less than surprised.

* One episode of ''Series/MidsomerMurders'' Creator/JohnWilliams is notorious for doing that - the worst example may well be ''PresumedInnocent'', where the penultimate track is called ''The Axeman Cometh'' and is about a murderer killing members of an aging rock band.

*** ''Deadpool Kills...'' Also had a sequel series called ''Deadpool kills Deadpool''. As one might guess, this is a subversion of sorts since every single character, other than The Watcher is an alternate universe version of Deadpool. Thus the readers weren't entirely sure if the title meant the Kills the Universe Deadpool would kill the mainstream 616 Deadpool, vice versa, or if the title referred to one of the thousands of other Deadpools killing another one.

** 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).
