* ''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.

* The third segment of ''{{Robotech}}'' (based on ''GenesisClimberMospeada'') is also called ''Robotech: The New Generation''. However, technically, the new generation actually started with the ''The Southern Cross'' Robotech Masters'; General Leonard's opening monologue explicitly stated how the defense of the Earth was now in the hands of a new generation. The name may have been saved for the third segment due to the focus on how the younger members of the returning expeditionary force had few memories of Earth, but had they been born on Earth, they would have been roughly of the same generation (minus a few years) that fought the Masters.

** The show's MonstersOfTheWeek are called "Witches," but they're actually bizarre EldritchAbominations which spread despair. The name makes a bit more sense when you learn that [[spoiler:[[WasOnceAMan they were once Magical Girls]]]].

* Since ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' translates to "MagicalGirl Madoka [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Magica]]," you might be surprised to learn that Madoka is never a typical Magical Girl ([[spoiler:excluding alternate timelines]]). Up until the last episode, she spends the series as a MuggleBestFriend debating whether or not to make [[DealWithTheDevil a contract]] to become a Magical Girl, at which point she becomes a [[spoiler:patron goddess of Magical Girls and/or AnthropomorphicPersonification of hope]].

* The Pokémon episode "Haunter vs. Kadabra" does not feature a fight between Haunter and Kadabra.

to:

* The Pokémon episode "Haunter vs. Kadabra" does not feature a fight between Haunter and Kadabra. Since Haunter is never owned by Satoshi/Ash, everytime he tries to send it in battle, it disappears. In the end, Pikachu battles Kadabra, then outside of the battlefield, Haunter reappears and makes Natsume/Sabrina laugh so hard, her Kadabra who is spiritually linked to her is unable to battle because it is rolling on the floor laughing.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' sounds like an assault on the largest moon of Saturn. The series could be more accurately named as Attack of the Titans. Its Japanese name, ''Shingeki no Kyojin'', literally means "Advancing Giants", which is a much more indicative and fitting title.

** Osaka herself is an example; She doesn't really fit the [[TheIdiotFromOsaka Osakan stereotype]], and isn't even originally from Osaka, but Tomo decided to give her the nickname, and it stuck.

** The ''[=DragonBall=]'' franchise is generally well-populated with villains whose names don't sound particularly threatening, particularly with a tendency to be named after objects. Piccolo, [[GalacticConqueror Freeza, Cooler]], [[UltimateLifeform Cell]], [[DemonicPossession Baby]], [[RageAgainstTheHeavens Garlic Jr.]] - if you got on the wrong side of any of these people, they could destroy everything you know and love. In most cases, up to and including your planet.
