* ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'': The different segments of the show are often referred to as ''Robotech: The Macross Saga'', ''Robotech: Masters'' (sometimes ''Robotech: Southern Cross''), and ''Robotech: The New Generation''. These title expansions actually come from the comic books published by Comico and don't appear in the animated series itself. Recently, in newer DVD releases, such as Robotech Remastered, they use newly created opening credit sequences for each segment. The original was a pastiche of scenes from all three and was used throughout the entire series.

!!Examples where the title itself is mistaken for something else:
* CharlesDarwin's book "On The Origin Of Species" is sometimes misnamed "Origin of The Species"
* The song "Killing In The Name" by RageAgainstTheMachine is sometimes mistookeningly called "Killing In The Name ''Of''" Since that is what the actual chorus says.

* ''ThirdRockFromTheSun'' and ''Series/ThirtyRock'', made all the more confusing by the fact that the former's title is commonly shortened to "''3rd Rock''". ''3rd Rock'' is about [[AlienAmongUs aliens living on Earth]], i.e. the third planet (rock) from the sun. ''30 Rock'' is a WorkCom set at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, otherwise known as "30 Rock". Amusingly, they're both Creator/{{NBC}} {{Sit Com}}s.

* Creator/UmbertoEco's highly acclaimed medieval detective novel ''Literature/TheNameOfTheRose'' (and its movie adaptation alike) is quite often mistitled ''In the Name of the Rose'', which sounds more like some random swashbuckling adventure.

The ArcadeGame used the former title worldwide, while the UsefulNotes/TurboGrafx16[=/=]PC-Engine version used the latter title in both the US and Japan. Kaneko pubished the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis version as ''Air Buster'' in the US and ''Aero Blasters'' in Japan.
