Contrast with ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, this trope's direct opposite. See also NonindicativeName, for characters and in-story objects with similarly unintuitive names. Related to IThoughtItMeant. For an example of a "TV Tropes" title that follows this formula, see NinjaPirateZombieRobot. Frequently results in an OverlyLongTitle.

* ''Film/MoulinRouge'' has the song Elephant Love Medley (medley used here to mean the same thing as Salad in this trope. Elephant Love Salad anyone?). Two characters are singing a medley of songs related to love, in a building shaped like an elephant.

Added DiffLines:

* Similar to the Shawshank example listed in the Film section, the title of ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'' can seem confusing until you actually start the game and get far enough in to learn about Project Zero Dawn.

* ''The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire'' by Dan Howell and Phil Lester: It makes sense if you know that the co-authors are better known as YouTube vloggers, and that their respective channels are called [=TheAmazingPhil=] and [=DanIsNotOnFire=].

** Could also be a play on "Mob psychology", which fits with how many people seem to start blindly following Mob for one reason or another, with him even getting his own ''religion.''

* The title ''Anime/TransformersArmada'' refers to the eventual team-up of Autobots, Decepticons, and Mini-Cons to form a giant space fleet to fight Unicron... near the end of the series, making the title a total mystery for most of the time that it was in use. Meanwhile its title in Japan is ''Transformers: Micron Legend'', referring to the Microns (Mini-Cons in the dub) who act as the main {{Mac Guffin}}s of the conflict.

** While the compilation that features the HD rerelease of the aforementioned ''3D'' often gets made fun of for having a ridiculous name, it's meaning is fairly clear. ''Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue''. While yes, the usage of "2.8" to indicate it's a follow up to "2.5" is a bit unusual. "Final Chapter Prologue" references that the three parts of the compilation are directly setting up for ''Kingdom Hearts III''.
