** This might be a double example, as the trailer for the show also played up the show's steamier side (complete with an out-of-context clip of Sasami saying "You're a naughty boy, aren't you, Tenchi?") While the uncut show does have quite a bit of this, the version broadcast on Toonami cut out any and all sexual references.

In fact, the line used by Sasami in the trailer was toned down when the show actually aired.

* When KidsWB was first promoting ''[[Manga/CardCaptorSakura Cardcaptors]]'', the commercials gave Li top billing despite Sakura being the main character. Then again, [[ExecutiveMeddling the series was also edited]] [[CulturalTranslation to give Li a bigger role and promote him as an equal partner to Sakura]] (and arguably, a mentor figure to her in the early episodes).

* The trailers for Creator/StudioGhibli's ''Anime/WhenMarnieWasThere'' were widely interpreted by many Western fans as a movie of the sweet story about the [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship budding youthful romance between the two female leads]]. In the actual movie [[spoiler:Marnie turns out to be the ghost of Anna's grandmother, reaching out to her granddaughter to help her cope with her life issues]]. Let's just say that many {{yuri fan}}s where massively disappointed.

* Parodied in one after-credits trailer in ''Anime/CowboyBebop'': Ed claims that the other cast members were all killed and next week the show will be replaced with The Adventures of Cowgirl Edward. Spike and Faye break in at the last moment and frantically try to convince the viewer that it's all a lie and there really is a next episode.

** I would say the most notable, and odd, was the first movie's trailer. What does an adult Misty with her GSC hair style, that police lady, and a girl who looks like Misty's future daughter, have to do with Mewtwo? *** It's speculated that around the time this trailer was made, the Pokémon anime was slated to end at episode 78, with the movie (which would most likely be told as a flashback by an older Misty) serving as the "finale" to the show. *** That still doesn't explain why Miranda was with Misty though.

* The trailer for the fourth ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' overall movie seems to strongly have this going. For those interested, the tagline is [[spoiler: "Naruto Dies"]]. This turns out to be true, but it's a really weird situation. [[spoiler:Naruto is bodyguarding a priestess who has the power to see her own death and usually puts someone else in that place so she can survive. So there ''is'' a continuity where Naruto dies,in fact this happens in the beginning of the movie,but it's not the main one.]]

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' - The next-episode previews have been full of blatant lies, characters acting incredibly out-of-character and inside-jokes. Likewise with a good number of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'' Kai's previews. * ''Ninja Resurrection : The Revenge of Jubei'' is one of the most infamous examples. ADV Films put together a rather deceptive trailer and marketing campaign that made it look like the series was a sequel to NinjaScroll. In fact, the two works have nothing in common except that the main characters both happen to be named Jubei. The series wasn't even originally titled "Ninja Resurrection" in Japan! Despite this, ''Ninja Resurrection'' sold like hotcakes on the strength of the deception. In fact, it sold better than the ''actual'' sequel to ''Ninja Scroll''!

* The ''Gakuen Utopia Anime/ManabiStraight'' trailer featured missiles destroying clocktowers and city-levelling explosions, absolutely none of which were featured in the show itself. This somewhat disappointed many viewers, who were hoping for a TwistEnding they had pre-emptively dubbed "The Lolicaust".
