*** The Morag Tong is an honorable and legal [[MurderInc assassin's guild]] officially sanctioned by the Dunmer government. Their name, when translated to Tamriellic, means "Foresters Guild". They obviously have nothing to do with maintaining forests.

** Those who have their heart removed become a Heartless, and sometimes also a Nobody. However, the creatures called "TheHeartless" are not made from the person-minus-the-heart, but rather the heart itself. The creatures made of the body and soul, that is, everything ''but'' the heart, are called "The Nobodies". In other words, Heartless have no bodies and Nobodies are heartless.

** Also: despite the misleading name, Nobodies have identities, and (usually) look exactly like their former selves. The Heartless are the ones who (usually) look like faceless ghosts and have no individual identities. [[RunningGag Confused yet?]]



** VideoGame/KingdomHearts2 is actually the third game in the series, after [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories.]] VideoGame/KingdomHearts3 is even worse, since it's the eleventh game (not counting rereleases and remakes), and, as of this writing, ''still'' hasn't been released.

** The "[[Film/{{Tron}} Space Paranoids]]" level from ''Kingdom Hearts 2'' doesn't take place in space, it takes place in a computer simulation. It has absolutely nothing to do with space.

** The developers carried this over to ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'' as well, where all thrown melee weapons get lumped under the term "glaive". Not that other weapon categories are exempt from odd nomenclature. Hammers also encompass maces, while the heavy blade category was originally named "axes", despite including greatswords; neither term accurately describes the Zenistar, a large, flaming club-like thing that can shoot out a fiery disk of death. The dual swords category really contains any pairs of bladed weapons that aren't dual daggers, such as short axes, sickles, cleavers, or even a sword paired with a dagger. Meanwhile, single sickles get dumped in the machete category. And that's to say nothing of all the guns that get called rifles and pistols, sometimes despite not being a gun in the first place.



* The Ronin from ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'' get their name from [[{{Ronin}} masterless samurai]]. They are not masterless: they do have a leader. [[LampshadeHanging This does not escape some of the members]], if you listen to their EnemyChatter.



** Quite a few Pokémon have names that barely resemble what they're supposed to represent: Sandshrew looks more like a armadillo or pangolin then an actual shrew.

[[UndergroundMonkey Alolan Sandshrew]] gets it even worse, trading away its old [[DishingOutDirt Ground type]] for a new [[AnIcePerson Ice]][=/=][[ExtraOreDinary Steel]] combo, making both halves of its name inaccurate.

** The Dwemer, a sub-species of [[OurElvesAreDifferent Mer (Elves)]], are also known as "[[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwarves]]. Though they do still have some similarities to typical fantasy Dwarves, the term is an archeological misnomer. The term "dwarf" was given to them by the Giants of the Velothi Mountains; the Dwemer were the first non-giant race with whom they came into contact, so they seemed very small even though they were average sized among the Tamrielic races. After it was picked up by the Nords (and through them, the other races of Men), the name stuck.

** While they tend to play significant parts in the backstory, it wasn't until ''Oblivion'' that an eponymous [[TomeOfEldritchLore Elder Scroll]] was actually seen in a game, and even then it was a MacGuffin in a side quest. It wouldn't be fully averted until ''Skyrim'', where one plays an important part in the main quest.
