* [[WordSaladTitle Team Shanghai Alice]], the creator of ''[[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Touhou Project]]'', is not based in Shanghai, has never included a person named Alice, and, most JustForFun/{{egregious}}ly, is not even actually a team (it's all just one guy).

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'', the ''blaze gun'' shoots ice and the ''glacier gun'' shoots fire. This is one result of the BlindIdiotTranslation that plagues the game. The guns were "'''Anti'''-Blaze Gun" and "Anti-Glacier Gun" respectively in the original Japanese. The PSP remake fixes this by simply swapping the names. In a similar fashion, the NPC ability "Stop Bracelet"? Instantly kills the target. Later releases renamed it "Suffocate."

** Enemy names have this. [=ReDeads=] have not died again; they're clay zombies, plain and simple. It's actually very annoying to find Rope, and it doesn't help in any way, since a Rope is a snake enemy. A Darknut is not a corrupted plant monster; it is a BlackKnight. [[note]] The Darknut's Japanese name resembles that of the similar "Iron Knuckle" enemy, suggesting that the intended name may have actually been "Dark Knuckle." [[/note]] There are also Bubbles (flying skulls that are usually covered with flames), Hardhat Beetles (squid enemies), Pol's Voices (silent rabbit-like enemies), and Wart (huge eyeball monster, sometimes depicted as jellyfish-like).

* ''The Swindle'' is not a game about swindling, which typically refers to parting people from their money through trickery and deception - you don't get people to invest in fake businesses, sell products that don't work or send out mass emails pretending to be the Prince of Nigeria. Instead, it's a game about heisting, with the mechanics focused on breaking into a place, dealing with the guards and running away with the money in a sack.

** The weapon called "Scythe" is clearly a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bardiche bardiche]], and even when ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' gave actual scythes their own weapon category (called "Reapers") instead of lumping them in with halberds, the "Scythe" stayed in the halberd category. ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' finally fixes it by changing its name to "Glaive", while including in its description that it ''used'' to be a scythe but had alterations made to the blade to make it more suitable for battle.

* ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' is not nearly as depressing and apocalyptic as the title makes it sound. This is largely due to copyright issue -- the game's Japanese name is ''It's A Wonderful World'', which makes the game sound rather more upbeat than it is. The true relevance of the title is revealed partway through, just not in the way you'd expect. It's a philosophical statement, and a reason why you should "expand your horizons."

** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' is actually the third game in the series, after ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories''. ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsIII'' is even worse, [[SequelNumberSnarl since it's the eleventh game]] (not counting re-releases and remakes), and, as of this writing, ''still'' hasn't been released.
** The "[[Film/{{Tron}} Space Paranoids]]" level from ''Kingdom Hearts II'' doesn't take place in space, it takes place in a computer simulation. It has absolutely nothing to do with space.
