Sometimes when a work wants to sound comedic and edgy, or maybe just easy to remember, it will adopt a title consisting of [[OneWordTitle one word]]; a verb in the past perfect tense. Occasionally they'll even take a word that isn't a verb and make it into one. This trend seems to go in and out of style, though currently it seems to be in vogue once again.

This trope doesn't always transfer well across languages, and works will often be given more self-explanatory titles overseas. In Russian, for example, it doesn't sound any kind of comedic or edgy. That's why ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' was released in Russia as ''Rapunzel: A Tangled Story''.

The VerbedTitle is a subtrope of OneWordTitle.
