* In BatmanForever, Batman's "I'll get drive-thru," snark at the beginning of the film would be pretty funny if not for the fact that every trailer AND McDonald's tie-in commercial made use of the line, making it simply eye-rolling (and an obvious attempt at ProductPlacement) by the time anyone actually saw the film.

** One frequently-aired commercial for ''[[WesternAnimation/IceAge2TheMeltdown The Meltdown]]'' showed the clip where Crash or Eddie is launched through the air, singing "I Believe I Can Fly" very horribly before hitting a tree.

** Some trailers for ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' overused Fear's "Worst case scenario" joke when Riley is being introduced to the class, as well as parts of the dinner scene. For the DVD release, the brainfreeze joke from the "What makes Riley...Riley!" scene was overplayed. In addition, some of the later ads for the film kept on repeating Bing Bong [[NeverLearnedToRead misreads "danger" as shortcut]]. The joke even showed up in a promotional comic for the film!

* ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' suffers from this. Many of the Scrat-related jokes were already run in the trailers, seriously diminishing their humor value when finally seen on the big screen. It's gotten to the point where the trailers are just entire Scrat segments, due to the fact that the kids love him so much. The 3D trailer for Dawn of the Dinosaurs managed to effectively say nothing about the movie's plot besides "Scrat's here".
** The Continental Drift trailers did this with jokes involving Scrat ''as well as'' several other characters.

** Pixar frequently creates footage specifically for its teaser trailers (both ''Toy Story'' sequels and ''Cars 2'' are other notable examples), the above mentioned material was never at any time intended to be a part of the films.

** And now the sequel is doing this with the Minions in nearly every second of the trailers and barely showing Agnes. The overuse of these side characters that add nothing to the plot makes you want to see "It's so fluffy" again.

* The third ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'' film has a scene in which Marty does a little dance done as a clown. [[ActuallyPrettyFunny It would've been funny]] if DreamWorksAnimation hadn't used it as part of their big advertising hype. Especially since [[MemeticMutation it became popular over the internet]], and 10-hour versions exist.

* ''Film/MenInBlackII'' had an ad lib from WillSmith concerning the autopilot driver for their vehicles. Even the director was upset because he felt it ruined the joke by showcasing it ahead of time.

* While the DMV scene from ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' was [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments funny enough already]], it can't seem to catch a break in every TV spot or trailer.
