* In ''Anime/PokemonRangerAndTheTempleOfTheSea'', Despite the popular belief, Manaphy isn't technically royalty at all at all to begin with, Many Humans call it "Prince of The Sea", likely because it was rare.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/PrincessPrincipal'' has two possible interpretations, [[TakeAThirdOption neither of which is correct]]. It is not about a princess who is the principal of a school (though she does go to a school). Nor is it about a princess and her bodyguard--"principal" being a term for the person the guard is assigned to protect. Although Ange acts somewhat as a [[DeclarationOfProtection self-appointed bodyguard]] for the princess, [[spoiler:the higher-ups try to make her kill the princess at one point]]. The intended meaning is that it centers on the agency's "principal team" of spies (why they are called principal is unclear; it's implied they're not particularly high-ranking), which includes a princess. It's nearly a WordSaladTitle.

** Similarly, Sailor Saturn has an attack called "Silent Wall." Her planet is called the planet of silence, but she initiates her attack by screaming the phrase.

* The name of [[SwissArmyWeapon Raising Heart]] in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' doesn't exactly describe the SimpleStaff / BoomStick / BladeOnAStick the main character wields, especially since its design doesn't include any hearts at all. This is due to the name being an [[TheArtifact artifact]] from the original concept of Raising Heart as more traditional heart-shaped MagicalGirl wand with wings. Adding to the problem was Nanoha's memetic fan reputation for [[BewareTheNiceOnes heavy-ordnance fighting]], so many fansubs assumed the weapon had the more appropriate name [[SpellMyNameWithAnS ''Raging'' Heart]]....

** [[BrotherSisterTeam Android 17, Android 18]] & [[MadScientist Android 20]] are actually {{Cyborg}}s. This one is because the Japanese name for all the "Android" translates into English as the rather generic "artificial human", which covers actual robots such as Androids 8 and 19 as well as humans turned cyborgs like the aforementioned 17, 18 and 20; about the only way in Japanese to unambiguously distinguish between androids and cyborgs without resorting to {{neologism}} is to use loanwords (i.e. ''andoroido'' and ''saiboogu'').

* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' has most characters and their abilities being named after [[MusicalThemeNaming musicians, bands, songs]], tarot cards, fashion designers, and Egyptian gods. About a third have names that are relevant to their personalities or powers, another quarter could probably be {{Fan Wank}}ed, and the rest are pretty much at random. [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy Walking punchline]] Creator/VanillaIce lends his name to a brutal vampiric HeroKiller with PortalCut abilities. In fact, some seem to be reversed, including the heat-controlling villain AC/DC and the electrically-powered Red Hot Chilli Pepper, or the LightningBruiser insect Tower of Grey and the cursed radio mast Superfly.
