** The summary for ''Billy Bob'' reveals that the aim is to escape from a prison and rescue your girlfriend, neither of which are made clear in the actual game. Likewise, the manual makes clear that the Action Gamemaster featured in the introduction to ''Cheetahmen'' transforms into the three title characters throughout the course of the game, while the actual game never even mentions him after the intro sequence.

* AllThereInTheManual: The manual summaries for the games appear to be based on the projected versions rather than the final ones. They talk about features that don't appear, or give descriptions of the games that are just flat-out wrong. For instance, the description of ''Bits and Pieces'' in the manual makes it sound like a ''Videogame/{{Tetris}}''-esque game, but the actual game involves Frankenstein jumping over monsters. The description of ''Shooting Gallery'' describes several different modes of play, but there's just one style with several levels of increasing difficulty.

* MinusWorld: Several that are encountered during normal gameplay, in many cases unavoidably.
** If you fall down a hole in Level 5 of ''Cheetahmen'', you end up in [[SecretLevel Level 9]], which is a room with a OneUp. When you exit the room, you go to Level 10, which is a garbled mess where you fall to your death.
** In the second level of ''Thrusters'', the screen starts blinking, and you can't progress any further. If you crash here, your ship scatters into a glitchy mess that can still move around. It can be avoided only with a right emulator and rom.
** The "lost levels" of ''Cheetahmen 2'', which are {{Remixed Level}}s from ''Cheetahmen 1'' where the music is all glitched, and your Cheetahman is invincible for some reason. Once you play through here, the game locks up, just like at the end of Level 4.
** The third level of ''Lollipops'', with its [[SensoryAbuse musical mind rape]], that results from the game interpreting other game data as music.
** The last level of ''Ninja Assault'' is populated by [[TheMissingno Missingnos]], and you're stuck in limbo at the end.
** Level 8 of ''Beeps n Blips'', where the background is garbled and the level can't be completed because both the player and enemies are invincible.

* BlatantLies: According to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Action_52_%28NES%29_box_art.jpg the box]], as displayed on TheOtherWiki, its creators gave it the "Action Seal of Quality Assurance". What kind of quality they were talking about is unclear, but it certainly doesn't mean what most of us would think "quality" means. Hopefully, it means "We're saving the best for last". Also: the manual.
