* Cartoon Network's advertisements for ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' were infamous in this regard. Thanks to the Toonami-style editing that the trailers underwent, ''Tenchi Muyo'' was made to appear as an exciting, action-oriented anime full of guns and stuff. While the show does have some action sequences, it is certainly not action-oriented in any way, and the disappointment was reflected in the show's ratings. Note also that the trailers combined clips from all three of the series' incarnations (Toonami showed all three series' one after the other).
** 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.

* ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'''s season 2 trailer plays this for laughs. It's a parody of action film trailers, complete with a dramatic English voice, while the anime is a very non-actiony series about a school band

The soundtrack for the trailer is also jazz despite the band playing classical.

* For every ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' movie, the early Japanese teasers and trailers contain scenes not in the released film. The most noted one, a silhouette of Mewtwo in the first trailer of the third movie, given that Mewtwo already had a focal movie, the first one. Naturally, Mewtwo did not appear in the final film.
** Some of the trailers for the eighth Pokémon movie (''Lucario and the Mystery of Mew'' or ''Mew and the Wave-Guiding Hero, Lucario'' depict scenes like Kid's van being caught in the middle of a geyser field, Lucario dodging falling rocks, Lucario apparently ''dead'' of unknown causes, and various other scenes, none of which are seen in either the Japanese or English versions of the film.

* The trailer for the 4th episode of ''LightNovel/{{Katanagatari}}'' shows clips of the long-awaited fight between Sabi Hakuhei and Shichika ([[{{Badass}} in which, among other things, a shark is bisected]]). Instead the episode is about Shichika's sister and concludes with Shichika and Togame talking about the fight with Hakuhei while eating dango. Apparently the fight was over 11 shades of awesome and would have been too much to show the viewers.

** The preview of Episode 66 for ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' has Vegito fighting Fusion Zamasu making you believe that the entirety of the episode is him fighting against Zamasu in an all-out battle... Except those previews are all of his fight scenes because he very quickly defused after fighting him in like 3 minutes and Zamasu is instead finished off by Trunks gathering the energy of everyone on earth.

** Repeated with the preview for the third movie attached to the ending of the second movie. It contained scenes that didn't appear at all in the final film or were radically different, and hinted at an adaptation of episode 24 despite the actual film [[spoiler: starting after a 14 year TimeSkip!]] It should be noted that it wasn't an intentional case, as the plot of the third movie was radically altered during production.

** For ''Anime/DragonBallKai'', the preview for Episode 31 makes it appear that Goku fights Recoome, Jeice, and Burter of the Ginyu Force all at the same time. Anyone who's actually watched the original ''Z'' cut or read the manga knows the Goku takes Recoome out first, and beats him [[OneHitKO with one hit]].

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' had a filler episode where Goku goes to Hell to help stop Freiza, King Cold, Cell, and the Ginyu Force from making a coup of the place. The next episode preview for the episode showed Goku transforming into his Super Saiyan form when confronting the Ginyu Force. In the actual episode though, Goku doesn't turn Super Saiyan at all! Notably the shot of Goku transforming in the preview was recolored so that he stayed in his normal form when he powered up.

** In fact this isn't completly true. The trailers never shows the mechas, as the clips in it were straight from the movie. The mechas apperaed in a russian [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbp5AJ63kEI russian music video]], that was produced by parts of the same crew, that later made the film and that inspeared them. Still it's not an official trailer.

* The trailers for Creator/StudioGhibli's ''Anime/WhenMarnieWasThere'' were widely interpreted by many 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.
