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

Added DiffLines:

** None of the animated works based on the strip released during Schulz's lifetime bore the ''Peanuts'' name in favor titles featuring Charlie Brown. After his death, his family approved titles using the strip's name (e.g., ''WesternAnimation/ThePeanutsMovie'' and the French-produced ''Peanuts'' TV cartoon).

** It gets even more confusing. The inter-title for the main segments is referred to as "The Adventures of Bullwinkle and Rocky" (note that Bullwinkle gets top billing). The series as a whole was never referred to as "Rocky and Bullwinkle" during its original run.

* The ''Film/XMen'' movies are largely themselves to blame for the confusion around their titles. While the first is simply ''Film/XMen1'', the second is identified in its opening sequence as ''X2'' but in its closing sequence as ''Film/X2XMenUnited'', and in publicity material is also promoted as ''X-Men 2'', ''X-Men 2: X-Men United'' and simply ''X-Men United''. Similarly, the third entry is variously known as ''X3'', ''X3: The Last Stand'', ''X-Men 3'', ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' and ''The Last Stand''. The next movie in the series, a prequel, gained the unnecessarily lengthy ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', and is referred to simply as ''Wolverine'' by most sane people. At least until ''Film/TheWolverine''.

Added DiffLines:

* The TV Series ''Series/GameOfThrones'' has become so popular that newer readers or non-readers who like the show have begun referring to them as the "''Game of Thrones'' books", though the novel series is actually titled "''A Song of Ice and Fire''" and the first novel only is called "''A'' Game of Thrones". However, one is much quicker and less awkward to say.

* 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]]

** When the show was dubbed in European countries, it was actually re-titled ''Lamu'' (Lum's name in the dub, taken from the Japanese pronunciation / spelling of "Lum", which is ラム).
