** The promo for ''Last Rites'' made it look like Zelena was about to dump several episodes worth of character development and become a villain again. She does This is actually the episode that cements her having a HeelFaceTurn.
** The Season 5 finale trailer wold have you believe the episode is all about Regina coming to terms with [[spoiler: Robin's death]] and potentially becoming evil again. This sub plot has about five minutes screen time in the two part finale.
** The trailer for "Awake" implies the episode is about the Charmings going back in time to raise Emma themselves so she never becomes the Saviour. There is a plot about Snow and Charming trying to get to a child Emma to raise her but it is a standard flashback.

** For the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXpO25EIErw first trailer]] the announcer mispronounced almost EVERY SINGLE NAME of the characters [[note]](only getting JAneway, Paris, Kim, and Neelix right)[[/note]]. And considering that one of the characters is named "[[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep The Doctor]]", this is especially bad. The announcer also mispronounces words ending with "er" as ending with "a", such as "fighter" as "fighta" and "voyager" as "voyaga". [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And they also called Harry Kim the communications officer,]] [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer when he's actually the Chief of Operations]]. Notably, at least two episodes had been filmed at that point, as the trailer had shown clips from the two-part pilot, so it wasn't an issue of the characters' names not being known at the time. The actors had already said who they were.

* Promotions for the ''Series/EmeraldCity'' episode [[Recap/EmeraldCityS1E6BeautifulWickedness "Beautiful Wickedness"]] implied that Lucas would be [[DistressedDude horribly tortured]] by Eamonn or West. [[spoiler:Eamonn considers it for about two seconds and decides against it. West warns that her magic will be "painful" but abandons the use of that spell when she sees she's fighting ''Glinda's'' magic]].

* Let's just say that all the ''Doctor Who'' trailers tell us these days is the title of the episode and a few big shocks that WON'T be happening in the episode.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': A trailer for the 2007 episode "The Family Of Blood" showed [[spoiler:John Smith getting married and having children. In the episode itself, this was just a Last Temptation to the life he could have if he didn't turn back into his usual self.]]
** The BBC One trailer for "The Waters Of Mars" ends with the [[BlatantLies Blatant Lie]] of someone knocking four times just like TheProphecy said, in the actual episode however, [[spoiler:it was LampshadeHanging and the Doctor stopped the villain from knocking a fourth time.]] The trailer repeated the fist knock.
** The ad for "The Doctor's Daughter" puts a great deal of emphasis on a blonde girl backflipping through a row of lasers. The scene was actually [[spoiler:a three-second filler with no real importance to the plot (except to further showcase the amazing talents of [[MarySue the Doctor's offspring]].)]]
*** The Australian trailer kept repeating "Father and daughter REUNITED!", even though Jenny was actually a newborn clone who took her first breaths in the episode. (May also be a misunderstanding of the fact that the Doctor's original companion was his ''granddaughter''.)
** Let's not get started on "Turn Left"; let's just say that all the ''Doctor Who'' trailers tell us these days is the title of the episode and a few big shocks that WON'T be happening in the episode.

Let's not get started on "Turn Left"; let's just say that all the ''Doctor Who'' trailers tell us these days is the title of the episode and a few big shocks that WON'T be happening in the episode.



** The Sci-Fi trailer for "Evolution of the Daleks" showed the Doctor standing below a hovering Dalek urging it to kill him [[spoiler: followed immediately by a shot of someone standing in the same place, in the same position (arms spread, looking up) being blasted by the Dalek. Of course, this wasn't the Doctor but a secondary character, though you couldn't tell because of the "glowing skeleton" effect that victims of a Dalek blast get in the new series. Anyone watching the trailer would swear the Doctor was just executed.]]
** Suffice to say, no one was really surprised when the ads for "The End of Time" featured Wilf ominously informing the Doctor, "The Master is going to kill you!"... [[spoiler: and in the actual episode--guess what?--he didn't!]]
** We can't even trust promo shots of Doctor Who: almost all the photos of the Eleventh Doctor's companion Amy Pond showed her wearing a police woman's uniform, leading many to believe that that would be her job; turns out she works as a kissogram, and the uniform was just a costume she switched into when the Doctor showed up in her house.
** The trailers for "The Almost People" suggested that [[spoiler: [[CloningBlues Ganger!Doctor]]]] was a villain, when in reality [[spoiler:he was generally good and helpful throughout the entire episode, even pulling a HeroicSacrifice at the end]].
** Season 7 trailers showed a clip from ''Asylum of the Daleks'' with Rory surrounded by a group of blown up Dalek shells, leading him to ask "Who killed all the Daleks?" Implying this was the end of the episode. [[spoiler: It wasn't, it was only the half-way point. They were merely half-active and insane by Dalek standards.]]
** The preview trailer for Series Six (played at the end of the 2010 Christmas Special) has two examples: a shot of three Nazis bursting into a room [[spoiler:while one episode ''did'' take place in Nazi Germany, this scene never occurs]], and a naked River Song winking at someone (presumably the Doctor). [[spoiler:Again, no sign of that anywhere in the new series.]]
** The trailer for "The Day of the Doctor" has the War Doctor's line "Great men are forged in fire. It is the privilege of lesser men to light the flame." In this context, it makes the War Doctor sound villainous. In the episode proper, we learn [[HeroicSelfDeprecation he's referring to himself]] as the lesser man, and the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors as the great ones.
** In the "next episode" for the season 8 finale, we hear Clara say "I am not Clara Oswald. Clara Oswald never existed!" implying a rather dark twist. [[spoiler:She was merely trying to stall for time against the Cybermen by claiming to be The Doctor. There very much is a Clara Oswald.]] The whole trailer was designed to make the viewer think the main plot of the finale would be something related to Clara betraying the Doctor, instead of [[spoiler:Danny's death and the Master's return as Missy- the betrayal part does happen, but it's in an attempt to bring Danny back from the dead, and most of it is AllJustADream created by the Doctor to test Clara, after which they get back together.]]
** The trailer for Season 9 prominently featured the shot of Creator/MaisieWilliams removing her Knightmare mask in "The Woman Who Lived", with the Doctor knowingly exclaiming "You!", and Maisie calmly responding "What took you so long, old man?" Since the trailer was shown before anyone knew ''anything'' about Maisie Williams' character, that scene understandably gave fans the impression that she would be playing a character from the Doctor's past, fueling speculation that Romana or Susan Foreman would be returning to the show. The trailer left out the fact that "The Woman Who Lived" is ''not'' the character's introduction. The Doctor acts like he knows her because he first meets her in "The Girl Who Died", the episode right before "The Woman Who Lived"; for those who are curious, she is a Viking girl [[spoiler: whom he saves from the grave in a way that makes her functionally immortal, and who from there must take The Slow Path]].
* The "Next Time" for [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E12HellBent "Hell Bent"]] showed what looked for all the world like [[spoiler: someone being forced to regenerate. While a regeneration ''does'' take place in the episode, it happened because the Time Lord in question was ''shot'' -- no one was force-regenerated.]]

Several scenes in the trailer referring to "the king" or Cersei Lannister referring to her son were revealed to be really about Joffrey's younger brother and successor, Tommen.
