!!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.

*In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', there's an episode whose proper title is So Many Birthdays. It almost universally gets referred to by fans as ''Too'' Many Birthdays.

* ''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 Kaneko ShootEmUp ''Air Buster'' is also known as ''Aero Blasters''. 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.

* The ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' [[Film/{{X-Men}} movies]] are largely themselves to blame for the confusion around their titles. While the first is simply ''X-Men'', the second is identified in its opening sequence as ''X2'' but in its closing sequence as ''X2: X-Men United'', 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'', ''X-Men 3: The Last Stand'' and ''The Last Stand''. The next movie in the series, a prequel, gained the unnecessarily lengthy ''X-Men Origins: Wolverine'', and is referred to simply as ''Wolverine'' by most sane people.

* ''Franchise/ThePinkPanther'', in the movie, refers not to Inspector Clouseau nor his arch-enemy Sir Charles Lytton, but to the diamond Lytton stole. The "Pink Panther" cartoon character only appears in the beginning and end wraparounds, and is not an integral or interactive figure in the content of the film.

It doesn't help that most of the Clouseau-focused sequels keep "Pink Panther" in the title.
