* HeavyMetal magazine has nothing to do with the music genre of heavy metal music. It's an anthology of adult themed comics, many of them fantasy and science fiction. It's original French name is Metal Hurlant and was co-founded by the artist Moebius. The movie adaptation attempted to incorporate some examples of the music genre into the background music but the film score was still clearly dominated by Elmer Bernstein. And even when rock was incorporated, the majority chosen for whatever reason, definitely non-metal acts like Journey, Grand Funk Railroad, Stevie Nicks, Music/CheapTrick, and Music/{{Devo}}. (Grand Funk ''was'' [[ValuesDissonance considered metal]] in TheSeventies, however.)
* You would think that a magazine named [[http://gardenandgun.com/ Garden & Gun]] would be perfect for that firearms enthusiasts with a nurturing side, but it's really about Southern fine dining and high culture.

* ''Webcomic/OrangeMarmalade'' is about a vampire, Ma-ri, dealing with humans at her school (mostly a boy with very tasty blood who has a huge crush on her) on the backdrop of vampires being allowed to live within society and lots of FantasticRacism. No marmalade at all.
** In an FAQ, when asked what orange marmalade was (in regards to the story), the author simply explained how one made orange marmalade.

* This very wiki is neither about television nor tropes. At least, not what your literature professor would think of first when he heard the word. The German version is called 'Media Tropes'. The French version is still TV.
* The '''MexicanStandoff''' trope wasn't coined in Mexico, but in Australia. Read the article for more information.
* Quite a few examples in '''NonindicativeName''' are indeed indicative, just not literal.
* Most of the tropes in '''AlwaysFemale''' and '''AlwaysMale''' aren't ''always'' that way. See GenderInvertedTrope.
* '''WhereNoParodyHasGoneBefore''', as befitting a [[StockParodies Stock Parody]], features parodies that resemble each other. (The page is named after the ending of the ''Series/StarTrek'' opening monologue.)
* '''ZettaiRyouiki''' is an interesting case. In Japanese, it literally means "[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion absolute territory]]", and most Japanese people won't recognize any figurative meaning. For [[PerverseSexualLust some reason]], though, otaku around the TurnOfTheMillennium started using it to refer to the area between where an anime girl's skirt ends and socks begin, which is uncovered. Then, the wiki further adapted the term to refer to characters who wear socks that extend past their knees, with any resemblance to the TropeNamer being [[ThisIndexIsNotAnExample forgotten]].

* The "Vid-Grid Pac-Maze" in Creator/BallyMidway's ''[[Pinball/MrAndMrsPacManPinball Mr. & Mrs. Pac-Man Pinball]]'' does not feature and video and is not a maze. It is, instead, a five-by-five matrix of lights.
* In Creator/DataEast's ''[[Pinball/TheWhosTommy The Who's Tommy]],'' the "One Way Combo" isn't a {{Combo}} at all -- the player simply shoots the ball into the Tommy saucer.
* ''VideoGame/SuperPinballBehindTheMask'' has nothing to do with masks.
** Similarly, ''VideoGame/SuperPinballIITheAmazingOdyssey'' does not feature an odyssey of any sort.
* ''VideoGame/PsychoPinball'' sounds like a perfect title for a pinball game either based on gothic horror or heavy metal music, instead of a collection featuring cartoonish clowns, pink whales, and a MascotWithAttitude.

* The female half of the family most commonly associated with the name Moreno in Mexican promotions such as Wrestling/{{CMLL}}, LLI and Wrestling/{{AAA}} are largely made up of blondes, except Alda, who is a [[NoExceptYes dirty blonde]]. The best case one can make is Rossy being slightly dark skinned if you want to stretch the world to is primordial origins.(Alfonso did have dark hair as do his sons, who are also all semi dark skinned too). Similarly, Carib wrestler La Morena usually has blonde highlights at the very least(though she can also pass under the semi dark skinned clause).
* For that matter, does "[[Wrestling/{{AAA}} Advisory and Management Assistance]]" sound like a lucha libre company to you?
* The Wrestling/AmericanWrestlingAssociation Women's Title belt was almost exclusively defended away from America, though this was mostly concerned a replacement belt created by Super Stars Of Wrestling, a company ran by former AWA employees who wished to stay in the business after AWA closed down. After Superstars Of Wrestling was sued by WWE and went under itself, the belt was finally renamed as the American Wrestling Association Japan Women's Title, which implies there was an AWA Japan, which there was not. Wrestling/ProWrestlingZero1 eventually sent it back to the States, only to retire it after Wrestling/SherriMartel's passing.
* On March 8, 1999, Wrestling/WorldChampionshipWrestling did not have a single wrestling match for its entire first hour. So fans tuned into the Wrestling/WorldWrestlingFederation instead, causing Nitro's ratings to plummet.
* WCW and later Wrestling/{{WSU}} valet Gorgeous George is anything but a GorgeousGeorge.
* Wrestling/{{AAA}}'s Degeneration Mex only had one Mexican in it. The name actually came because of Wrestling/XPac's membership.
* LLF PowerTrio The Brotherhood is made up of Polly Star, La Chacala and Lady Dynamite, all of whom are women.
* Terriblemente Guapo el Rey, sounds like a self given {{narcissist}}ic title or something swooning fan girls would call a man. TGR is actually three wrestlers (El Terrible, Shocker and Rey Bucanero) operating in Wrestling/{{CMLL}}.
