* EVE's job in ''WesternAnimation/WallE'' is to look for living plants on Earth, which is the one place she ''shouldn't'' be looking according to her name ('''Extra'''terrestrial Vegetation Evaluator).
** {{Justified|Trope}} if you interpret it as "Vegetation Evaluator who is herself Extraterrestrial," though.

** In "The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy", Summer accidentally [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever turns herself into a giant]] when using Rick's growth ray to increase her breast size. Against Morty's advice, Beth attempts to fix the problem herself, but makes thing worse because the machine's settings are a case of this; when she sets it to "normal", Summer expands through the garage. When she sets it to "reverse", it turns Summer inside out.

** InUniverse: in "Any Given Sundance," Marge goes to see a film called ''Regularsville'' and sees that it's about cross-dressing, then one called "Candyland" that's about heroin addicts.
-->'''Marge:''' I get it. Every title means the opposite of what it means. Then I bet I'll love ''Chernobyl Graveyard!''
-->''(Enters movie theater, only to emerge a moment later.)''
-->'''Marge:''' [[SubvertedTrope I didn't]].

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham''. The name would suggest that ComicBook/{{Batman}} is the lead character, but in reality he has barely twenty minutes of screen time and spends most of that screen time as the HeroAntagonist to the ComicBook/SuicideSquad, the ''real'' stars of the movie, with ComicBook/{{Deadshot}} in particular being the unofficial protagonist.

* The {{DC Universe Animated Original Movies}} eventually settled on only making movies with "Superman," "Batman" or "Justice League" in the titles[[note]][[WesternAnimation/TeenTitansTheJudasContract and eventually ''Teen Titans'']][[/note]], because those were the ones which sold best. As a result, their names sometimes wind up where they don't really belong.

** Likewise, ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueTheFlashpointParadox'' only features the Justice League as a group for five minutes near the beginning, though you could justify it saying that we see the various members' states in the dystopian timeline. The Flash/Barry Allen is the main character.

* In ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall,'' [[BigBad the Beast]] is a HornedHumanoid, but other than that doesn't seem very "beastly," being FauxAffablyEvil and relying mostly on [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation]]. He also has an [[EvilSoundsDeep excellent]] [[VillainSong singing voice]], being played by a professional opera singer. [[note]]However, it becomes much more accurate if you keep in mind that he's not ''a'' beast, he's ''[[SatanicArchetype the]]'' [[SatanicArchetype Beast.]][[/note]]

** "Zanzibar" is a memorable MusicalEpisode with a GreenAesop. Why is this episode named after a semi-autonomous region of the African nation of Tanzania? ''Nobody knows.'' The title seems to be completely random.
