* More a misspelling than a wrong title but a lot of people misspell the {{BerenstainBears}} as the "Berenst'''e'''in Bears". This error is so common it even spawned a urban legend that it was originally spelled Berenstein but [[UnfortunateImplications changed to sound less Jewish]]

** ''Slaughterhouse-Five, or The Children's Crusade: A Duty-Dance with Death'' is generally called ''Literature/SlaughterhouseFive''. Besides his liking to create long names, the reason for adding, "The Children's Crusade" to it is explained in the book. As he was thinking of writing the book he promised the wife of one of his fellow soldiers that the book would not glorify war, promising it would be called "The Children's Crusade", to note that most of the "men" who fought in WorldWarII were 17 to 23 years old.

* The webcomic ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics'' is still occasionally referred to as ''Daily Dinosaur Comics''. [[http://web.archive.org/web/20030220043058/http://www.qwantz.com/ This]] is where "Daily" came from. Note the top of the page "Welcome to qwantz.com", then immediately on the next line "daily dinosaur comics". Since "qwantz.com" isn't a suitable title for the comic, the descriptive text was likely mistaken for the title back in the day, and it stuck.

* ''Film/HeroAndTheTerror'' is sometimes assumed to be titled '''''The''' Hero and the Terror''. Chuck Norris' character doesn't deserve an article, apparently.
