** Bethesda's "Radiant AI" trailer was an entirely scripted series of events (which they claimed were dynamic and spontaneous) that never actually appeared ingame. False advertising, hooray!

** Bethesda's "Radiant AI" trailer was is partially an entirely scripted series example; the trailer showed off a diverse use of events (which they claimed were dynamic and spontaneous) that never actually appeared ingame. False advertising, hooray!“Radiant AI.” However, in the final game, Radiant AI is noticeably limited, due to the original version of the system causing... [[MurderIsTheBestSolution interesting results to simple inconveniences.]]

* Taken to a science by ''Franchise/MetalGear'' director HideoKojima. Hideo Kojima claims he hates making trailers, because TrailersAlwaysSpoil. He says the only way out is to make deliberately misleading trailers - hence his embracing of this trope.

** ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIV:BlackFlag''. See the official trailer (which is in the game) in all its shameless glory [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_GDeIee6Kc here]]:

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rQLqeX_LcQ Trailers]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCh74Q0o_AE commercials]] for ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon'' keep showcasing the ''Anime/PokemonIChooseYou'' hat Pikachu with no explanation on what it is, giving the implication that it's available in regular gameplay. It's actually available only by scanning a QR code that came along the promo card given to those who saw the aformented movie in cinemas.

** The Main/GameDotCom commercial for ''Sonic Jam'' featured sped up footage. The actual game is an [[PortingDisaster extremely slow]] compilation of levels based on the Mega Drive games.

** Jokingly used in the trailer, which at one point shows a 3D shot of Toriel being slammed into a pile of blocks, with her head (in realistic detail) in the background saying "My child, you are breaking my heart.". Even the trailer is confused by this.

* The trailer for ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}: Episode 2'' at the end of ''Episode 1'' implies that Alyx didn't survive the train crash at the end of ''Episode 1'' and this would drive the plot of the second episode. This spectacularly fails to happen.

*** This is actually not true. If you use Kolgrim's Horn on the mountaintop, a dragon will attack you. You also face a dragon during one of the companion quests.

* The trailer for ''VideoGame/SuperScribblenauts'' shows a boy creating a huge, living skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Too bad you can't even make something remotely like that in the game, for if you type in "giant skeletal tyrannosaurus", all you get is a big normal tyrannosaurus with bones painted all over its body.
