** 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.

to:

* 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.

* 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 Evaluation who is herself Extraterrestrial," though.

* 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]]

* On ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife,'' Heffer Wolfe is neither a heifer nor a wolf. Played with, however: he ''is'' a steer, and his last name comes from [[ObliviousAdoption his adopted family]], who ''are'' [[SpeciesSurname wolves.]]

** "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.

* On ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'', Meatwad says his favorite computer game is called Clamdigger. The game is about the player's friend calling them to bet who can dig up more clams at the beach, and the objective is to find parking.

* Played with on an episode of {{Squidbillies}}, where Early and the Sheriff go to visit a therapist. Turns out it wasn't a therapist, just a misreading on "The Rapist".
