** ''Slaughterhouse-Five, or The Children's Crusade: A Duty-Dance with Death'' is generally called ''Slaughterhouse-Five''. 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.
** ''Breakfast of Champions, or Goodbye Blue Monday'', everyone just calls it ''Breakfast of Champions''.

Added DiffLines:

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

* The ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' gets this a lot: the word or phrase that comes after "Tales of" in the games' titles usually has little to no relevance to the story, but some people will assume that said word is the name of the world the game takes place in.

Added DiffLines:

** The German translations are titled "Die Peanuts", the people in charge obviously having thought that the protagonists were called the "Peanuts". This has no basis in the strip itself, either, as the characters do not appear to consider themselves a gang or something. The title was actually derived from "peanut gallery".

Added DiffLines:

* Happened to ''Fear'', a horror anthology by Creator/MarvelComics in the first half of the 1970s. Originally, it simply reprinted stories from earlier series and was called just "Fear". After a while, it started featuring original stories starring the Comicbook/ManThing (and later Comicbook/{{Morbius}}), with the cover now reading "Adventure into Fear with the Man-Thing", although the word "Fear" continued to stand out (to a varying extent depending on the issue in question). Indeed, the title in the indicia remained "Fear", but as of 2017, ''Wiki/{{Wikipedia}}'' claims that this was just a formality and "Adventure into Fear" was the intended and trademarked title by that point. The recent ''The Man-Thing by Steve Gerber: The Complete Collection'' however also refers to these issues as simply "Fear". And the database on Marvel's Web site, in an apparent but consistent mistake, calls the series (implicitly including the reprint-only issues) "Adventure''s'' into Fear".

* 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]]
