* The release of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' spurred a large number of rumors and alleged missing content, due to the TroubledProduction that ensued between Konami and Creator/HideoKojima. Some of the biggest include:
** That there was something planned with all the unused level space outside Camp Omega in ''Ground Zeroes''. Various videos showcase all of the buildings and terrain outside Omega itself via clipping through the gates, including detailed textures and far more space than what is normally visible inside the camp. While this may have been intended to be part of an OldSaveBonus that would have transferred to ''Phantom Pain'', nothing appears in the final version and the only remnant of Camp Omega is in a ''Metal Gear Online'' map, now cloaked in fog and called "Black Site".
** That the "Classified Intel Acquisition" tape found in a Side-Op in ''Ground Zeroes'' is actually a secret audio recording that [[https://www.msx.org/forum/msx-talk/general-discussion/metal-gear-solid-5-cassette-tape contained untranslated data from the MSX game system]]. There was rampant speculation as to its true purpose, including claims that it could be a secret message from Kojima himself or used to unlock additional content in ''Phantom Pain'' (and there was an additional MSX-related tape that could be found in that game). It was eventually discovered that the MSX data was an incomplete ROM for the game "The Portopia Serial Murder Case" (which inspired Kojima when he was younger), and that there was no hidden secret to be found.
** That there is an alleged missing chapter of the game, referred to as "Chapter 3", which was removed prior to the release of the game and was/is intended to be released as a content patch. Fans often refer to this missing content due to the unfinished nature of some plotlines (notably, Eli and the child soldiers steal Sahelanthropus from Mother Base and fly away to parts unknown). Evidence pointing to this includes a supposedly-unused entire ending detailing Mother Base celebrating global disarmament (in actuality, it's a [[GuideDangIt difficult-to-unlock ending that requires the online FOB mode]]), the existence of an unused and incomplete mission called "Kingdom of the Flies" (which appears in a pre-viz/animatic form on the Collector's Edition extras disc) and supposed hints in-game that there was more content to be discovered. This even [[http://gamingbolt.com/metal-gear-solid-5-producer-responds-to-secret-chapter-questions-as-fans-rally-to-unlock-it got the attention of producer Ken-ichiro Imaizumi]], who stoked the fires by claiming that he "couldn't tell" the fanbase what needed to be unlocked. It even inspired [[https://www.reddit.com/r/NeverBeGameOver an entire sub-Reddit forum]] dedicated to datamining its secrets. Although there are aspects of a "Chapter 3" still on-disc (namely, text files referring to a number of scrapped missions that were all harder difficulties of missions from earlier in the game) and a "Chapter 3" title card, it appears that nothing new was intended and most people have given up on waiting for the alleged content patch.
** There were also [[https://www.reddit.com/r/metalgearsolid/comments/3kbjuq/spoilerish_somethings_coming_on_911/ rumors]] that an alleged content patch would be unlocked on September 11, 2015. This was in reference to an image of the World Trade Center towers that appeared at the end of the unused "Kingdom of the Flies" mission with Liquid Snake's famous line ("It's not over yet!"), as well as a site called Ingsoc.org that was referring to an unrevealed game called "Black Hound". While the "Black Hound" game was a real title (though not developed by Kojima or Konami - it was developed by an individual coasting on the uncertainty and confusion around ''Phantom Pain''), no such content patch ever arrived.

* Various sites have claimed that ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'' was going to be a DarkerAndEdgier game in it's development, with some claiming that it was originally going to be the first T-rated Mario game. As the rumors go, Luigi was going to have a set time limit to find Mario and if it ran out, Mario and the mansion would disappear and Luigi would wind up possessed by the ghosts. However, the game was always intended to be family-friendly, and at no point was a time-limit part of the gameplay. The time limit idea seemed to have spawned from demos for the game that timed how long a person could play the demo.

** That you could unlock something cool if you played all the blue sphere levels with ''Sonic 1'' connected. That "something" could have been playing as Hyper Tails, Metal Sonic, or Robotnik. There are over 100 ''million'' blue sphere levels -- assuming you could solve each one in two minutes, it would take roughly 400 years of solid play to finish them all. And nothing would happen anyway.

** Shortly after ''VideoGame/DarkSouls2'' was released, a rumour spread that there was a form of copy protection present in the game files that, when activated, would throw a Screamer at the unsuspecting player. Anyone who played the game immediately figured out that it was a hoax due to the fact that a certain NPC mentioned in the story didn't actually exist. For those curious, you can still find the forum thread on Steam. It's very funny.

** There were rumors of a second new Eeveelution -- typically considered a dragon type - given that new Eeveelutions only come in pairs and that Nintendo hadn't promoted Glaceon or Leafeon. (Presumably, Sylveon was promoted due to it being of a then-new type, a trait that so far is only shared with Umbreon.) Within a few weeks of the games' release, and no one finding anything, the speculation died down.

* There are many (joking) rumors on how to unlock secret characters for ''[[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Scarlet Weather Rhapsody]]'', the most prevalent ones allowing you to unlock [[{{Tykebomb}} Flandre Scarlet]] and [[AnIcePerson Cirno]]. This was not helped by fans making their sprites for ''{{MUGEN}}'' based on the ''SWR'' spriting style; many of them emulated the look incredibly well, going so far as to modify SFX from the game to fit the fanmade sprites. (The Cirno rumors were officially killed with her inclusion in ''[[ExpansionPack Hisoutensoku]]'', though Flandre fans are still left waiting.)
** A slight bone was tossed to Flandre's fans one of Remilia's alternate color schemes is essentially Flandre.

* In the early days of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' fandom, there were rumors that Ash's Butterfree died in the original Japanese version of "Bye Bye Butterfree" and that the English dub [[{{Bowdlerise}} rewrote the script]] so that Butterfree [[NeverSayDie would live]]. It was supposedly claimed that Butterfree [[OutWithABang die after mating]], and Ash was sad because he knew this was the last time he was going to see his Butterfree alive. Once the Japanese episodes became more readily available, it became clear that this was not the case and Butterfree do indeed survive after mating.

** Rumors for ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'' are that Mew in the Japanese version had a [[FantasticRacism very horrible opinion on clones]]. It said that the originals were "inferior and should perish". In reality, according to to Meowth (Nyarth in this version) its dialogue was:
-->''The real one is real. If they fight only using bodies without skills, the true ones will not be beaten by their copies.''

** During the initial airing of the first season, there was a nasty rumor that Amon was to reveal himself as a somehow alive [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Aang]], fueled by a [[http://i.imgur.com/WLDKl.jpg very convincing photo]] of a supposed upcoming episode airing early in a foreign country. This was easier to believe due to the fact that the last episodes of ''AWesternAnimation/vatarTheLastAirbender'' actually did air early in foreign countries and had their plot points leaked to the west. In "Skeletons in the Closet," much to many a fan's relief, Amon's identity was revealed as [[StrangerBehindTheMask someone completely different]].

* 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. Out of those endings, many players had speculated what would happen if Lotte survives, Anne ''and'' Laura survive, or all three girls live alongside Jennifer. Due to a mass number of glitches, it actually ''was'' possible to achieve these, ([[HesJustHiding or in the former's case, technically count this by chalking it up to "if I don't see it, it didn't happen"]]), but unlike the rumors which implied that all the girls can potentially be saved to earn the best ending possible, [[DevelopersForesight the designers had partially anticipated this enough to automatically lead to ending F]] [[spoiler: normally, ending F, which involves Jennifer being killed in the elevator, is triggered if she had, at the very least, not witnessed either of Lotte's deaths. Note that it is also legally impossible without exploiting [[RandomNumberGod unpredictable]] [[GoodBadBugs glitches]] to have both Anne and Laura survive.]]
