* ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' has Doppel, an EldritchAbomination masquerading as a CuteMonsterGirl. Her nickname (her actual name cannot be pronounced or understood by humans) implies she's a doppelgänger, but she's actually a shapeshifter. Doppelgänger are exact copies or look-alikes of a single person, while Doppel can turn into anyone, and possibly any''thing''.



* The Snipers in ''Anime/{{EL}}'', who don't ever appear to do any actual sniping in the [=OVAs=], and in fact mostly just use pistols while running around and doing ordinary police work. Though it's possible that The ''Serial Rapists'', while more accurate, wouldn't have gone over as well with the public.

* ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' itself. The title means "King of Games", and refers to Yami no Yugi/[[spoiler:Atem]], who [[spoiler:goes back to his own time]] at the end of the first series (well, second, but first outside of Japan), ''Anime/YuGiOh'' and hasn't been seen since (except in ''Anime/YuGiOhTenthAnniversaryMovie''), yet the series is still called King of Games even though the titular King of Games isn't in it anymore.

** Signum's SignatureMove ''Shiden Issen'' is translated as "Purple Lightning Flash". It's not purple. And it's a ''[[PlayingWithFire fire-elemental]]'' [[FlamingSword sword slash]]. Later in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', she teaches it to Erio. His version is a [[ShockAndAwe lightning-elemental]] [[ElementalPunch punch]]; however, it's not purple either; it's [[YellowLightningBlueLightning blue, then yellow, then blue again after the attack is over]].

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' sounds like an assault on the largest moon of Saturn. The series could be more accurately named as Attack of the Titans.

* ''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.

** 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.
