Added DiffLines:

* Not as bad as most cases, but there are a few scenes in the trailer for ''WesternAnimation/CaptainUnderpantsTheFirstEpicMovie'' that show Captain Underpants with superpowers, proving that he does gain them at some point in the movie.

* A home video trailer for ''WesternAnimation/TitanAE'' showed the entire movie, start to finish, in order, including the final scenes of a new Earth being formed and the lead characters on it. Why bother to see the movie?

Can lead to TrailerJokeDecay. See also SpoilerOpening and LateArrivalSpoiler. Compare TheNamesake, when the title itself may be a spoiler. Or just see SpoilerTitle. See SpoiledByTheMerchandise for when plot points are spoiled by TheMerch. When the movie or TV series gets a home release, it may be lumbered with a SpoilerCover.

!! As this trope concerns spoilers, unmarked spoilers follow.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'''s Black trailer, which serves as an introduction to the character Blake Belladonna, the background music is "From Shadows", a song with lyrics about people suffering FantasticRacism from humans and planning their revenge. One of the plot points in the series involves the [[LittleBitBeastly Faunus race]] being subjected to prejudice by humans (the lyrics in the trailer include "treated like a worthless animal", to make it clear the song is about them). This ends up spoiling, or at least strongly hinting at the fact that Blake is actually a Faunus disguised as a human, which is a twist revealed in the second-to-last episode of Volume 1.
** Another RWBY example. The Japanese Volume 3 trailer ''reveals every death and tragedy in the season'', which took away much of the impact present in the original release; where everything went to shit with very little warning

* In 2011 MarvelComics was especially bad about this, saying that now they'll probably kill off a major character every quarter to raise sales:

* TheReveal of ''Comicbook/DCRebirth'' #1 is that the Pre-''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}'' [[Comicbook/TheFlash Wally West]] still exists and remembers the previous continuity. Naturally, DC revealed this in official previews and sanctioned reviews about a week before the issue hit stands.

Naturally, DC revealed this in official previews and sanctioned reviews about a week before the issue hit stands. However, the reveal ''was'' leaked online a few days earlier, so it's unclear if DC would have released said previews and sanctioned those reviews if it weren't.

* Oh boy, where to start. Most of the trailers for ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'' spoil Poppa's death, Arlo's friendship to Spot, the meeting of Forrest Woodbush, Arlo helping the cowboy T-Rexes, Arlo encounters the main villian, Thunderclap and also the climax. In short, the trailers just showed you the entire movie.

* Marvel basically confirmed that ''Hunger'' would end with a FailureIsTheOnlyOption scenario by revealing that their next CrisisCrossover for the [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate]] line, ''[[Comicbook/CataclysmTheUltimatesLastStand Cataclysm]]'', would see ComicBook/{{Galactus}} reaching Earth and beginning his assault. To those unaware, the entire premise of ''Hunger'' was that ComicBook/SilverSurfer and Rick Jones were desperately trying to stop Galactus ''before'' he could get to Earth.
