Compare with JustifiedTitle, TitleThemeTune. See also ArcWords, AppropriatedAppellation, TitleScream, SingerNamedrop, and AlbumTitleDrop. Often combined with a LiteraryAllusionTitle. The opposite of this trope is NonAppearingTitle, as well as NonindicativeName and sometimes WordSaladTitle as well. When a title of a series was once accurate and descriptive, but has since become obscure or out-of-date, it has an ArtifactTitle.

Note: If a series is named after a [[CharacterTitle central character]], [[ThePlace setting]], group, etc., it does not count as a Title Drop, unless they are usually called by another name. Hence, ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', ''Series/TheWestWing'', ''Series/{{House}}'', and things like that don't qualify. Often, the Title Drop will finally explain why the episode/book/etc is called that way to begin with. If this explanation comes by ''[[ShowDontTell showing instead of by telling]]'' (i.e. it is not actually spoken aloud by any of the characters), then it's TheNamesake.

A second variety of Title Drop is the FinaleTitleDrop, occurs when the title of a work is used as the last line spoken or near its end. Here, it's not nearly as big and flashy and important as the first variety, but it still explains things to the audience a bit more. You can probably find these mainly in thriller works, where it makes you sit up and think (and adds a bit of drama to the ending). It's also common in plays that were written during the Victorian era.
