* ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'': At the end of the last episode came a fifteen-second trailer for the GrandFinale [[TheMovie Movie]]. The trailer shows an EvilTwin of the main character, the sidekick (who closed out the series BrainwashedAndCrazy) with his arm buried up to the elbow in TheRival's gut, the female lead trying to kill the hero with a sniper rifle, and more. In the actual film, none of this happened as depicted, though two concepts (the female lead opposing the hero and a tagalong character becoming a Rider) were merged together. Reportedly, the movie ''was'' going to be like that, but they were forced to basically abandon the entire plot and start over from scratch. The trailer scenes finally showed up in the Director's Cut...as part of a dream sequence the female lead has at the start of the movie.
** The trailer for Series/KamenRiderFaiz made us believe that there world be a lead female Rider for the first time. It was very convincing.

** The trailer for Series/KamenRiderFaiz ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'' made us believe that there world be a lead female Rider for the first time. It was very convincing.Though the {{Transformation Trinket}}s in this series do get passed around rather freely, and occasionally end up in the hands of women, there are no recurring female Riders; in fact, the female lead trying and failing to transform is actually something of a RunningGag.
** ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'': In Episode 4, the main character finds evidence that the kindly café owner who's been helping him out is actually part of Faust, the NebulousEvilOrganisation that experimented on him and [[EasyAmnesia erased his memories]]. The preview for Episode 5 includes an audio clip of the owner seemingly admitting "I'm a member of Faust". In the actual episode, however, the owner denies the accusation, and his statement is a disbelieving "Me? A member of Faust?" before he busts up laughing. However, [[spoiler:he admits that he ''pretended'' to aid Faust in the past so he could double-cross them, stealing one of the two panels that came off of [[MacGuffin Pandora's Box]] from them.]]

* The traitor for ''Film/Shaft'' and its sequels. The trailers and posters for the first two implied that was taking over black neighborhoods, for the first, and that the Mob was trying to control black neighborhoods in the second. This wasn't the case at all. It was a racist lie to makes whites look bad, but the first was about John Shaft rescuing a black gangster's daughter from the mob, even though it was that gangster who started it in the first place. The second was mostly about Gus Mascola and his black minion, and Shaft wasn't involved until Gus was told that Shaft was him.

** In one trailer the main focus was on the fact that Olivia was going to take a pregnancy test. That, along with the writers on twitter teasing the fan base, lead to the intense fan speculation that she was pregnant. Of course in the end the pregnancy test was negative and took up about 20 seconds of screen time. However; a shot in the promo showed Olivia holding a baby and smiling which fans for the most part ignored. That baby turned out to be her future adopted son and fans realized they had seen the beginning of the biggest personal arc in the characters history in a trailer that they had ignored at the time.
** Another trailer showed a shadow of someone pointing a gun at Olivia as she was sleeping. It turned out to be her ward Calvin Arliss playing with a water pistol.

** In the "next episode" for series 8 finale [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E12DeathInHeaven "Death in Heaven"]], 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.]]

* Previews of episodes of ''Series/TheWall'', including those within the actual episodes, tend to manipulate clips to make it look like the balls are going to fall in the million dollar space or other high-value amounts as a hook for audiences to tune in, when the clips are actually just mashing together entirely separate ball drops and the actual result tends to be anticlimactic. For instance, if balls head in the general direction of the right side of the board where the biggest dollar amounts reside, then skitter over to the left or the middle, those unfortunate outcomes will be doctored up.

For instance, if balls head in the general direction of the right side of the board where the biggest dollar amounts reside, then skitter over to the left or the middle, those unfortunate outcomes will be doctored up. This also works to its favor, as it can prove to be a mislead before the balls ''actually'' land in these spaces.

* The ''Series/{{Psych}}'' episode "Lights, Camera, Homocito" had Shawn going undercover on a telenovela. Promos implied that Shawn was in over his head in the acting department or not understanding Spanish by having his co-star rattle off a line in Spanish and Shawn replying "Que?" In actuality, Shawn does pretty well as an actor and understands Spanish perfectly. The "Que" was in the telenovela's script.

* The reality series ''Series/TotalDivas'' had one scene that appeared in almost all of their commercials for season 2, a scene of Wrestling/SummerRae slapping Wrestling/NatalyaNeidhart across the face. The commercial made it appear as though Summer slapped Nattie because Nattie said Summer dresses like a stripper. In the actual episode, the slap occurs after Nattie insults Summer for being [[ChristmasCake 30 and still single.]]

** Previews for Season 3 featured a conversation between Mark Carrano and Ariane, with him saying "you won't be a Diva anymore" - implying she's at risk of being fired. In the episode where it happens, the conversation is about what might happen if Ariane goes back to NXT to train (and hypothetically losing her spot on TV).

* ''Series/ZTheBeginningOfEverything'''s first season trailer employs ManipulativeEditing with the audio of Zelda discovering that Scott has used some of her writing in his book. The trailer makes it look like a huge argument - when in the actual episode, Zelda is ''flattered'' to discover this, and thanks Scott for making her part of his book. Overall the trailer makes their relationship look like it's full of rows and fights, when there's less of that in the actual series.

* ''American Idol'' had one OnTheNext promo that showed Barney the Dinosaur auditioning for a brief couple seconds. Needless to say, when he didn't appear in the next episode, some were thoroughly disappointed.
* ''AmericasGotTalent'' usually includes a teaser featuring a mediocre contestant crying during an elimination round, bookended with clips of the judges admonishing someone. 95% of the time, the contestant is actually crying TearsOfJoy because they're so happy to have made it through.
