* In 2007, a Website/YouTube video popped up that supposedly showed that you could unlock a galaxy in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' and play it on your UsefulNotes/NintendoDS. While the DS could connect to the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} for some games, the DS didn't have the graphic capabilities for this, but it was so well put together for a hoax that people believed it.

* ''VideoGame/HeyYouPikachu'' had a persistent rumor that saying "UsefulNotes/PlayStation" or "SEGA" would make Pikachu angry. Neither word is in the game's voice recognition library. ** A 2005 April Fool's prank started a rumor of a remake for the NintendoDS that introduced a new Pokémon called "Korechu".

** Before the Wii U title was released there was a screencap going around where Palutena said Pit in the original games looked like a one-night stand between [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue MissingNo]] and a garden gnome. Nevermind they'd never word it like that in an E-10 rated game, it's in the wrong location. It still got well over 10 thousand notes on Tumblr and people thought it was real.

* In ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'', there tends to be a rumor (or an accusation) made that a certain male townsperson (specifically, a cat named Bob) wears a dress. According to some, this is a programming error — he's supposed to have normal "guy" clothing. However, this is false Bob wears the same type of [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal sacklike clothing]] both male and female cats wear. His "default" shirt pattern has flowers on it, but it's a flower shirt that is available to all characters (players included) and is worn indiscriminately regardless of gender.

** And then there were the numerous other rumors of what Resetti does to you if you continue to reset long after he nearly has a stroke trying to hammer in "RESET THE GAME '''''NOT'''''!" into your head. Without going into the more gory or "colorful" outcomes that are blatantly false, one particular (and common) variant to this rumor is that if you reset over 60 times, Resetti will finally get fed up and dig like crazy underground, migrating all the neighbor's homes up a hill from below and causing all the neighbors to be mad at you for a week. Less outrageous (but just as false) is the rumor that his joke about erasing the player's save data stops merely being a joke at some point (this also tends to be claimed to be triggered by a certain amount of resets). The reality is, after a certain number of resets, the game simply recycles the last six conversations. ** There was one rumor floating around for the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube version that if you opened your file every day and talked to the same neighbor (again, every day) for a straight year, you'd have the option to marry that neighbor.

* Electronic Gaming Monthly, prolific prankster on April Fool's Day, suckered in a lot of people with its claim of a realistic remake of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' rendered with the graphical engine of ''Twilight Princess''. They claimed it was available with a ''Twilight Princess'' pre-order and photoshopped Link fighting a bird enemy in ''Twilight Princess'' style in an area clearly from ''Wind Waker''. People asked local retailers if the pre-order offer was real, and the May issue included letters mocking those who were fooled.

When the first details about the story were reveled, they claimed that Link began his new adventure by trying to rescue "his little sister". A little sister that wasn't revealed until a few months later. This was something new in the franchise, not only because Link had never had siblings before, but also because in previous games, if the story set up was about rescuing someone, that was usually Zelda. This brought back some people to a particular line at the beginning of ''A Link to the Past''. When Link finds his [[spoiler:dying uncle]], his last words in the English translation of the [=SNES=] version were "Zelda is your..." These people guessed that that sentence was supposed to finish with "sister", meaning that Link and Zelda would be secret siblings. And that by extension, the little sister in ''The Wind Waker'' would be Zelda herself. The rumor spread like wildfire in the Zelda community, and many of them took it as true... even though there was absolutely no other proof or even hint in the rest of ''A Link to the Past''. To the point that Nintendo went out of their way to change the line that started the rumor in the rerelease of ''A Link to the Past'' for GameBoyAdvance. However, although obviously the rumor died out for ''The Wind Waker'' once Aryll was revealed, a lot of people kept believing Link and Zelda were siblings in ''A Link to the Past''... and some of them still genuinely believe it up to this day.

** Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly), some exists for the South East Asia region version of the game had one going around in the early 2000s. According to some questionable fansites, Asiasoft is extremely lazy, corrupt, or both. All it takes to become a GM is to have a new, clean account for a 6 months, and then to submit an application. Allegedly, if you succeed, they send you one heckuva high-end workstation fitted with 6 Full HD monitors. And then they won't care if you abuse it- numerous players on the Asia server have seen GMs abusing their power, and complaints to Asiasoft has allegedly fallen on deaf ears.\

* In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar'', in World 5-1: Shy Guy Jungle, one of the things Mario can find in the pile of trash is a serial key: "XD3R-B8HH-9ZR2-FL16". Some say that this is an actual serial key for something, but nobody knows what it's for. It's not a Club Nintendo or eShop code, because both display the "wrong code" message instead of the "code has already been entered" message.

** That Zekrom, Reshiram, and Victini can be shiny. Sadly, it's not true, but this hasn't stopped rumours that you can get a shiny one from Dragonspiral Tower. This probably arises out of the fact that they have shiny sprite data ([[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything so that the game doesn't crash if someone hacks them in]]). All three were available at Wi-Fi giveaways, which leads fans to believe their shiny versions may be available in such giveaways in the future; this is unlikely, though, as Zekrom and Reshiram are plot-critical legendaries in their respective versions.

* In ''VideoGame/ClockTower: The First Fear'', the game features multiple endings, many of which are determined by whether or not each of Jennifer's friends are killed off during the game, bar a few exceptions, some varying on what Jennifer does in the last few screens, while others are determined by acts unrelated to the girls.

If you use a Gameshark to play as either of them (or Master Hand, or any of the Fighting Polygon Team, for that matter), the game freezes at the end of the match, because none of those characters have an animation for the post-match "applause" screen.
