Several examples that aren't on the page but should:
Strider isn't the name of a character in Capcom & Moto Kikaku's Strider franchise, it's the name of the hero's profession, the hero is called Hiryu, if Strider was his name, he would've had an S instead of the kanji for Hi(飛).
You may not want to say Mariya is the sister of some one other than Hiryu, it's really a translation error(Hiryu still calls her his sister when he defeats a brainwashed Cain in the NES Game).
The Main Computer for the ZAIN Project isn't Yugdesiral, it's Yggdrasil.
It's not Kain, it's Cain, the letter on his uniform is a C not a K.
The name of the First Main Boss from the first Arcade Game isn't Urobolos, it's Ouroboros.
The name of the Flying Battleship from the Arcade Games is not Ballog, it's Balrog.
Do not call the Asian Letters that restore your health or increase it Chinese, they are really kanji that form Hiryu's name in Japanese.
Do not call the Grandmaster "Lord Eurasia", he was saying "He will never leave Eurasia alive."
Do not call Captain Beard Jr. "Captain Hook".
The Red Kuniang Sister isn't named Nam Pooh, SHE'S NAMED BEI POOH!!!
Herzog Schlange doesn't refer to the mechanical hydra at the end of Strider 2's second stage, it refers to the man riding on a flying platform, also Herzog Schlange is German for Duke Snake, and Duke is a ruling title, the mechanical hydra is actually called the Aluminum Hydra.
Do not mention Strider Returns/Strider II(U. Gold) or Hinjo for that matter.
Do not confuse the franchise with Beverly Cleary's Book, Aragorn's alias, or Dave.
Do not call Matic the "Director of the Striders", his Title is Vice Director for crying out loud, the Director Title belongs to Kuramoto.
Do not call the Horseman you encounter in Strider 2 "Metall Hengst", it's the name of the Robot Horse he's riding on.
Do not call Renegade/Nekketsu Kōha Kunio-kun a Double Dragon rip-off, Renegade was out in 1986 and Double Dragon was out in 1987, they were also made by the same people.
Mario's 180 sideways somersault move's first appearance wasn't in Super Mario 64, it was Donkey Kong for the Game Boy.
Do not call Harvest Moon a FarmVille rip-off or a Farm Town rip-off, you will be buried up to the neck.
It won't be a lucky seven if you call Final Fantasy VII the first game in its series, there really was a I.
Dr. Robotnik wasn't Dr. Eggman's original name, it was a localization change.
Amy Rose didn't debut in Sonic Adventure, she debuted in Sonic CD and before that, an obscure manga.
Fully-voiced dialogue didn't originate in Sonic Adventure either, it originated in SegaSonic the Hedgehog.
Team Chaotix never debuted in Sonic Heroes, they debuted in Knuckles Chaotix
Jake Hunter Detective Story isn't an Ace Attorney rip-off, "it's actually a localization of the latest installment of an older detective game series known as Detective Saburo Jinguji." according to TV Tropes.
Call Final Fantasy Adventure a Link's Awakening rip-off and it really will be your final fantasy.

Calling Tactics Ogre a Final Fantasy Tactics rip-off will prompt fans to beat you to death with a club.

Do not call the Skull Kid from Majora's Mask Majora.
Do not say the events of that game were a dream.
Do not call Lara Croft Tomb Raider.
Do not scoff at the idea of Pokemon based on inanimate objects, they've existed since the first generation.
Do not call Phantasy Star "Fantasy Star".
The wizard who fills in the party's last slot in the first Phantasy Star Game is not Noah, it's Lutz(This can be verified in PSIV), also don't call him a woman(That was a mistake in the first game).
Do not interpret Vanellope from Wreck-it Ralph as secretly evil, she's not, those who use that one, or wish she was deleted for good for that matter, will be on the receiving end of an armor-piercing slap for supporting slander.
Being convinced Felix, also from Wreck-it Ralph, is a jerk will get you slapped too.
Do not paint Dr. Brad Scott as an apathetic ex, even if he's just a programmed memory, you're just speaking ill of the dead, although you can get away with laughing at him being eaten by a Cybug.
Do not subject Rancis Fluggerbutter to that either, you'll be spanked on the butt.
Be careful what you say about Turbo, defending him over Vanellope will have you glitch-infected for supporting child abuse.
