** Also on Tumblr, there's a ''very'' highly reblogged post that appeared around the time the last movie premiered about the child actor playing [[DeadGuyJunior Albus Severus]] being the same one who played baby Harry in the first movie, despite the fact that a quick IMDB check shows that the first baby Harry was actually played by a set of triplets. Also, bonus points for using a picture of baby Harry from ''Deathly Hallows'' instead of the baby Harry from ''Sorcerer's Stone''.

*** An older one, in the same vein of the previous one, said there was an interview where the creators confessed that Candace was based off of Candace Newmaker, a young girl accidentally murdered in a 'rebirth session.' Considering the lack of proof of the interview existing anywhere, and that the show was still being pitched before the accident, this one was sort of obvious.



** Another Wikipedia edit around the same time had someone claim there were more episodes of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' with Jon's [[CanonForeigner (created for the series)]] niece Sharon in them, and that she was removed from the series in the later seasons and had her episodes edited [[TheScrappy because nobody liked her.]] Asides from this being a potential slam at ''WesternAnimation/PinkyElmyraAndTheBrain'', it would be borderline impossible to cut her out of certain episodes ''where she was the main protagonist alongside Garfield'', and many of these episodes she was in [[TransplantedCharacterFic simply had her taking the place of Jon or Odie themselves in the 'edits'.]] Again, kinda obvious.

* There was a very popular theory that ''WesternAnimation/PhineasandFerb'' was really based off the ramblings [[TheSchizophreniaConspiracy of a schizophrenic little girl]] and what she wrote in her diary, which was found after she killed herself. It got to the point where both creators had to debunk it themselves, and even make a joke or two about it on Twitter.

* There is not a ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' movie in production, but the constant faked screencaps and articles seem to refuse to let it go. You'd think they would have caught on by now when the first news of it came out [[SchmuckBait April 1, 2014.]]

** Another infamous theory claimed that Doofenshmirtz was Phineas and Candace's biological father, and there was a lost/cancelled episode that confirmed it. This theory was, too, stated to be false by the creators.

*** However, Banpresto has stated that there are some shows they won't include in ''SRW'' for various reasons. One example cited was ''Manga/DaimidalerTheSoundRobot'', since its {{Ecchi}} plot elements can't be written out and would cause too much conflict[[note]]The titular robot draws power from teenage girls getting groped and molested, which is something that most other Mecha characters wouldn't tolerate[[/note]].

** One persistent rumor sees fans claiming that Mist Rex, protagonist of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsK'', will be appearing in whatever game is upcoming. This is simply a {{Troll}} joke, since Mist is hands-down the '''least''' popular protagonist who's ever appeared in ''SRW'' (details on ''K''[='s=] page) and is done to elicit angry reactions from fans not savvy enough to realize it's a joke.

*** The ''MK'' clone ''VideoGame/TattooAssassins'' ran with this idea and actually implemented "nude-alities". However, it was PlayedForLaughs rather than titillation: nude-alities make the opponent's clothes poof away, leaving them humiliated and [[HandOrObjectUnderwear trying to cover up]].

* EverQuest generated a lot of these due to the heavy secrecy that Verant maintained regarding the mechanics of the game behind the scenes. Verant was adamant to ensure that the actual number of XP points gained and the formulas used in combat calculations were completely hidden from players, leading to numerous guesses and false rumors about the system's functionality.
** It was long believed that the game only checked your dual-wield skill when your mainhand weapon swung. This lead to the practice of always keeping the faster weapon in the main hand thinking that it would give the offhand weapon more opportunities to swing. In reality, the dual-wield chance is checked every time the weapon should be swinging, and both hands work independently of one another.
** Due to the game's tick-based timing system that processes all effects in blocks of six-second intervals (to reduce bandwidth in a time where most people still used dial-up), it was believed for a long time that the Harmony spell cast by druids and rangers increased mana regeneration. This was because casting the spell on a player would force their client to update their current mana level, sometimes ahead of a meditation "tick," giving the illusion that the Harmony spell itself had increased the target's mana.
** The game's experience-sharing system and classes with XP penalties were the source of a ''ton'' of theory-crafting leading to mountains of false assumptions. In reality, no class or race had a penalty imposed on gained XP. Instead, certain classes and races required more XP per level than others. Furthermore, the way that XP was split amongst the party was based on total current XP, not level, so while it was true that certain class/race combinations received a larger chunk of the share, the actual percentages were usually grossly overstated. However, because Verant so vehemently hid the mechanics from the players, this lead to many players falsely believing that those classes were imposing an experience penalty on the entire party, which in turn made those classes and races less likely to be invited into groups.
** Many players for years believed that performing certain actions in Castle Mistmoore, such as killing specific [=NPC=]s at specific times of day, using stealth to turn in certain rare quest items to specific hostile [=NPC=]s, or even peforming quest actions in completely different zones would cause Mayong Mistmoore, a dark elven vampire that's mired in EQ's lore, to spawn in the throne room of Castle Mistmoore. In reality, Mayong Mistmoore only appeared as part of GM events run by Verant's event staff, and is not an NPC that can normally spawn in-game.

* It's commonly assumed by Star Trek fans that the instrumental "Archer's Theme" was originally written to be the opening credits theme for ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' but was replaced by the Russell Watson cover "Where My Heart Will Take Me". Fairly plausible it syncs up with the opening credits perfectly, and a variation plays over the closing credits but not actually true: according to composer Dennis [=McCarthy=] he created "Archer's Theme" at a fairly late stage, and actually wrote it to match the opening credits rather than the other way around.

* There was a rumor that the original airing of the ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' episode, [[Recap/SpongebobSquarepantsS1E13ScaredyPantsIWasaTeenageGary "I Was A Teenage Gary"]], contained a scene that depicted Squidward turning into a snail that was cut from later airings. An awkwardly placed transition that happens after Squidward gets injected with the snail plasma which then immediately cuts to Gary, Spongebob, and Squidward on the fence as snails was often used as evidence that a scene was cut. However, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSH1jHvgX6Y a recording of the original airing]] debunked this rumor. It was also rumored that the Polish dub still contained this scene, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiu4ODTEnlk which was also debunked]].
