* 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.)

* 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.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* The Wrestling/AmericanWrestlingAssociation Women's Championship was almost exclusively defended away from America. After the AWA went under the belt was finally renamed as the American Wrestling Association Japan Women's Championship, 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 Sherri Martel'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.
* LLF PowerTrio The Brotherhood is made up of Polly Star, La Chacala and Lady Dynamite, all of whom are women.
