* Creator/TiteKubo's tendency for "[[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands Plotkai]]" as fans call it in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' has given him the title of trolling god via MemeticMutation. For some, Kubo may be on his way to graduating from Trolling Creator to MagnificentBastard, considering how many people complain or bitch about ''Bleach'' and yet they '''keep reading it no matter what'''. He also admitted in interviews that the reason he gave Hisagi a "69" tattoo ''on his face'' is because he wanted a double-entendre that parents would too embarrassed to explain to their kids. He's also said that he responds to online character-bashing by increasing the page time for the characters being bashed.

* Speaking also of Studio Gainax. The GainaxEnding and SequelHook made the fanbase beg for more ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'', only for no second season to occur, [[TeasingCreator despite many teases]]. Though, [[TheBandMinusTheFace the staff of the show and leaving to make]] [[Creator/StudioTrigger their own studio]], [[AcclaimedFlop and that the show didn't sell well]] may have played a part in this.

* Creator/KunihikoIkuhara has to count. What with the happily mind-fracturing ''[[Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena Utena]]'' fans by informing us that [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory every interpretation of the series' symbolism is correct]], giving "not sure if serious" answers to deep questions at conventions, and to top it all off "explaining" (for a given interpretation of the word) the biggest symbolism WTF of the ''Utena'' movie by [[spoiler:cheerfully stating that he just wanted to have a pretty girl turn into a car at some point in his work.]]

* Creator/EiichiroOda, author of ''Manga/OnePiece'', was told by the voice actor for Franky regarding what hairstyles he doesn't want Franky to have. Guess which character inexplicably got a new hairstyle every chapter.
** Most of his week long breaks occurs whenever something crucial happens in the story. A well-known example is him revealing Gear Fourth at the end of Chapter 783.

* Creator/{{Valve|Software}}, though they walk the line between this and TeasingCreator, especially with ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' - intentionally obfuscating the Pyro's gender[[note]]they later admitted that [[ShrugOfGod they don't know Pyro's gender any more than we do]][[/note]], the whole business of crates, the infamous Mystery Treasure episode[[note]]a set of items that did absolutely nothing [[spoiler:Except reveal info for the Pyromania ARG]], and were added to the game to shake up the economy [[spoiler:(However, equipping the "Eliminating the Impossible set allowed for different descriptions used in the Pyromania ARG.)]]... only to be burnt to piles of ash a week later [[spoiler:With two exceptions, one being reused for the Mann Vs Machine ARG]][[/note]]... Then there's Gabe Newell never answering any questions about ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}: [[{{Vaporware}} Episode 3]]'' and instead focusing on randomness such as ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'''s hats and ''VideoGame/CounterStrike'' updates.
** And when he ''does'' talk about ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}: Episode 3'', he says stuff like [[http://gamerant.com/gabe-newell-half-life-2-episode-3-tease-trung-105917/ this.]]

** A case of Trolling Publisher can also be found in Madoka's English publisher Aniplex US. They witheld the info about [[spoiler:[[OffWithHisHead Mami Mogu Mogu]]]] from [[spoiler:Mami's voice actress, CarrieKeranen]], and so as she described, she was walking casually for [[spoiler:Episode 3]], thinking that it's just a normal episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKraFH64gCo#t=5m15s and then...]]

** The sheer fact that ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' even exists is proof to Kojima's troll status. The first four games in the franchise were touching character dramas, full of philosophical dilemmas about the tragedy of war and, hey, here's a game where you play as a badass cyborg ninja slicing through watermelons while fighting giant robots with your electric sword!

* [=Kensuke Tanaka=], the lead producer for ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'' is often regarded as one, and it's more than just for the truckloads of [[BrutalBonusLevel salt-inducing seasonal events]] and [[LuckBasedMission RNG-dependent outcomes]]. One of his first acts was to affirm that ships do sink at orange (i.e 50% health or lower, aka "medium damage"), which was in direct contradiction to information provided in the tutorial (i.e only heavily damaged ships are at risk of being sunk), and in at least two to four events, he intentionally withhold key information regarding the events, such as the existence of the sixth map in Summer 2014 Event which bars all AL/MI participants and the precise location of the debuff nodes for final map of Summer 2015, the air-raid debuff at E5 for Spring 2016 E6 on top of the boss having an AchillesHell that can only be struck during the [[LuckBasedMission initial airstrike]], as well as understating the number of Saiuns needed for Winter 2017 Event. Many Admirals considers him being the resident ScapegoatCreator of the game completely justified for this reason.
