** For those still wondering about it, TheOtherWiki has an article on goldfish and most of them are effectively ''not'' golden.

** [[BrotherSisterTeam Android 17, Android 18]] & [[MadScientist Android 20]] are actually {{Cyborg}}s. This one is due to the fact that Japanese doesn't have separate words for cyborg and android.

* Archer from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''... is not an archer. He has a bow that he can use, but he's primarily a swordsman. The same goes for [[spoiler:Gilgamesh]], the Archer from the previous Holy Grail War. WordOfGod has stated either ''could'' have gotten the title of Saber (in each Holy Grail War, there's the same set of seven titles the servants go by), but the Saber who is [[spoiler:King Arthur]] fits it even better, and since they often used their swords [[StormOfBlades as range weapons]] "Archer" was the next best fit.
** This isn't entirely true since unlike Gilgamesh, who more or less uses his weapons in a MoreDakka / MacrossMissileMassacre role, Archer's[[note]][[spoiler:EMIYA]][[/note]] second most powerful ability after ''[[FieldOfBlades Unlimited Blade Works]]'' consists of creating fake Noble Phantasms with his Reinforcement and Projection abilities and then ''[[http://typemoon.wikia.com/wiki/Broken_Phantasm breaking]] and firing'' them from a Compound Bow created from an alloy only found in his original time, giving his role as an Archer a very good fit.
*** FSN Archer's personal combat philosophies are also quite close to the ideal of ''Kyūdō''. Not to mention the attitude which inspired the ''Independent Action'' ability associated with the Archer class being a strong element of characterization in both of the above.

* The one thing the titular group in the ''Manga/ChroniclesOfTheGoingHomeClub'' does not do is actually return home, especially since the title comes from a slang term for students not enrolled into a JapaneseSchoolClub.

* ''Anime/TransformersArmada'': The Star Sabre has nothing to do with stars. The Skyboom Shield neither flies nor goes 'boom'. The Requiem Blaster is very loud when fired. Who named these things?
** Also, the [[Anime/TransformersCybertron Cyber Planet Keys]] are not actually keys, nor does the Omega Lock lock anything.
*** Many such oddities make more sense from [[MerchandiseDriven a toy collector's perspective]]. Cyber Keys, for instance, are roughly key-shaped and are used to ''unlock'' various gimmicks. As for the Omega Lock, once all four keys are in place and it's put into its proper place in a temple on Cybertron, it ''unlocks'' [[spoiler:the planet, allowing it to awaken and transform into the god Primus.]]
** Some Franchise/{{Transformers}} are named for features that later incarnations won't have. Armada Smokescreen doesn't have smoke (though he did once activate such a feature in the Autobots' base... something anyone could've done.) Energon Sixshot doesn't have ''anything'' to do with the number six (the original Sixshot had six forms, though the 'shot' is ''still'' a misnomer.) Cybertron Crosswise's name has nothing to do with him, though he is a 'monster hunter' and some monsters don't like crosses... but that's ''really'' stretching it. The first use of the name was with a guy in ''Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'' who had a big X on his car hood. G1 Ramjet? An F-15, which doesn't use a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramjet ramjet]]. The list goes on and on.
** Ramjet's name actually suits him pretty well, considering his penchant for ramming other aircraft out of the sky.

* There is a species of ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' called "Flymon" even though they're really closer to bees. In fairness, they do, in fact, fly.

* Alphonse in ''Manga/FullMetalAlchemist'' is indeed an alchemist who is fully made of metal, but the title is in reference to his brother Edward, who has only one automail arm and leg. This is lampshaded early on when people assume Alphonse is the Fullmetal Alchemist.

* ''Robot X Laserbeam'' is actually a golf manga about a teenager nicknamed "Robot" by his classmates for being TheStoic and his signature swing, which sends the golf ball on such a straight path that onlookers call it "The Laserbeam." Aside from the guy's machinelike precision, it is completely mundane in its setting--there are no science fiction or fantasy elements whatsoever.
