* Creator/DCComics' answer to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is often referred to as the Film/DCExtendedUniverse by many people... except by Creator/WarnerBros and DC Comics themselves. It turns out the name was a joke that came from an article written by Keith Staskiewicz for ''Entertainment Weekly'' in July 2015. It's only two years later that Abraham Riesman of ''Vulture'' learned from DC Films executives that it's not the official name for that shared universe.

It didn't prevent some of the people involved like Creator/EzraMiller from referring to it by that name or "DCEU", still.

* According to several fans in the ''Manga/SoulEater'' fandom, it is official that [[AmbiguousGender Crona]] is male. This claim is based on the Funimation dub of the anime and YenPress translation of the manga, both which use male pronouns. So that should mean that Atsushi Ohkubo intended for Crona to be male in the first place, right? Wrong- official translators admitted that they only used male pronouns because [[ItIsDehumanizing they didn't want to insult Crona by using "it" or "they"]]. Ohkubo hasn't settled on a gender for Crona, and [[ShrugofGod probably never will.]]

* ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' fanbase is extremely bad for this, often believing fan videos or theories to be factual. A particularly bad example is the fans claiming, "The Purple Man is named Vincent" because a Tumblr user used that name in their artwork. Other examples include WebShow/{{Game Theory}}'s videos being the canon lore, Foxy being a good guy who tries to ''warn'' the player about the other animatronics and ''accidentally'' causes them to die of fright, or that the Puppet is the ghost of a grieving mother because of the lyrics in ''The Living Tombstone's'' music video.

** In a case of "God ''did'' say that, but not at that time", there were many who considered "William Afton" to be the Murderer's canon name ''long'' before Scott confirmed!ed it to be the case.

* Since Creator/AlexHirsch of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is active on Twitter, the fandom has an unsurprising tendency to photoshop screenshots to create fake tweets. After Hirsch hinted in the behind-the-scenes special ''Between the Pines'' that [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Dipper's]] real name [[ThemeTwinNaming had something in common with Mabel's]], one of these screenshots gave rise to a popular rumor that his real name was Michael. [[spoiler: Its Mason.]] Also, similar to the Greg Weisman example above, when he stated that a character would die in the show's second season, he never said that a ''main character'' would die: the death that he was referring to was of the town's elderly mayor, which served as the catalyst for a BreatherEpisode.

* Considering the headaches trying to figure out the timeline of ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', it was almost inevitable that one timeline or another would emerge in popular consensus as "official" and "verified". It was rarely stated who did the supposed verification, and flew in the face of several creators. A general chronology was believed to exist, which was flexible enough and with no dating system to allow them to put any new game they want anywhere in the timeline without screwing it up. Finally, in 2011, an ''actual'' official timeline came out that ([[BrokenBase mostly]]) settled all debates regarding the games released up to that point.

* A common misconception about Joe Odagiri is that he hated his role as Yusuke Godai, TheHero of ''Series/KamenRiderKuuga''. This stems from a mistranslated interview, [[http://tokusatsunetwork.com/2016/03/15074/ as noted here]] - while he ''does'' dislike Tokusatsu as a whole[[note]]most notably, his agency forced him to audition for a part in ''Series/KyuKyuSentaiGoGoV''; the staff asked him to do a pose, which he refused to, so he was rejected[[/note]], and he disliked doing ''Kuuga'' at the time[[note]]this was because he had passed the audition, and at the time, his only other option aside from playing Godai was to quit acting and leave his agency[[/note]], looking back, he does not regret his time playing the part. The only reason that the part isn't listed in his profile on his agency's website (the removal of said part is what started the rumor) is because it wasn't his debut - Odagiri himself says that there are other roles he did at the time that aren't listed either, and since ''Kuuga'' wasn't his debut, they can't give the part special treatment.

** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels'' was originally the the sequel to ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'', but it was never released outside of Japan until ''Super Mario All-Stars''. Many people believed that Nintendo of America refused to have the game released in the West fearing that the game would be too difficult for most players. [[labelnote:note]] Which wouldn't make any sense since there were a ''lot'' of NintendoHard games on the NES back in the day.[[/labelnote]] It was never confirmed that Nintendo actually said that, but Nintendo did say that they didn't bring the game over due to it being more of the same as the first game with very few new things added.

** On the old version of her website, Rowling had an entire section called the "Rubbish Bin" devoted to debunking rumors about both herself and the ''Harry Potter'' series.
