** For years, there were rumors of a cheat code in the early games that would let you play as Lara without any clothes. While the PC version ''did'' have a fan made patch that made it possible (which was taken down after a cease and desist order), there wasn't any actual codes to achieve that effect.

** Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly), 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.

** There was a rumor that you could play as Venom in the PS2, PSP and WII versions of ''Film/SpiderMan3'' tie-in game [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames (The not-so-good version)]]. As collecting 50 Spider-emblems after the final mission unlocks the Black suit for unlimited usage, people latched on the idea that collecting 100 meteorite fragments would unlock Venom as a playable character. [[ForeGoneConclusion Turns out that it doesn't]]. All footage about it is just very blurry footage of the Black suit.

** Unstable also kicked out a few Urban Legends of Zelda of it's own by breaking the long-held rule that each card must have a unique name. The set features a number of cards with the same name and cards type but different stats, rules text, and/or art. This led to some very interesting discoveries in the time between the official "complete" spoiler of the set (which listed one version of each of said cards) and the product's wide release a few weeks later.

* ''Go Go Gadgetinis'' was allegedly the DarkerAndEdgier [[NoExportForYou UK-only]] sequel series to ''WesternAnimation/GadgetAndTheGadgetinis'', despite fan claims that it was real, there is no evidence to prove it. It is rumored that whoever holds control over this long running hoax maintains several dozen accounts throughout the web, including information sites and art galleries, all under different or similar names. All information draws back to the member "Axel Alloy", a member fairly well known on DeviantArt, and the acclaimed voice actor herself. She holds several accounts online, specifically art galleries where her style is easily decipherable.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'':
** The [=TemShop=] (''a.k.a.'' the only place in the game where you can sell stuff) generated a strange rumor. Sometimes, Temmie will announce that she really wants an item, and saying "No" to her at this point makes her increase her offer. If you say "No" again, she will reply "You will regret this" in perfect English. There was a rumour that if this happens, all Temmie enemies encountered from then on will kill you in one hit, which is not true.
** A rumour so prevalent that it's posted on many fan sites as fact: The strange-looking, skeleton-like NPC in a DummiedOut room (that can only be accessed by editing your save file) that starts and disappears when you examine it is almost universally said to be W.D. Gaster, even though this has not been confirmed by WordOfGod and the game files identify the character as "spr_mysteryman_0".
*** W.D. Gaster in general seems to be an intentional nod to this trope, TheMissingno and DummiedOut characters. Every reference to him in the game is only accessible by tampering with the game settings or through incredible luck, and together they paint a [[NightmareFuel disturbing picture]] of a brilliant scientist who was shattered through time and space by falling into one of his machines, erasing him so utterly that [[UnPerson it's like he never existed at all]]. Gaster seems intricately connected to the plot of the game - especially to [[spoiler:Sans, who just might be the one person who still remembers him]], but you would never know that if you didn't dig deep below the surface of the game. In short, his very existence seems to be tailor-made to incite fan speculation about his nature, his death and his role in the events of the game.
** An example of what could be called an Ascended Urban Legend of Zelda: the demo of the game features a Toy Knife as an equippable weapon, so a rumour started that by playing violently, you can find a Real Knife instead. This rumour turned out to be true in the actual game: [[spoiler:the Real Knife replaces the Worn Dagger, the strongest weapon in the game, on a Genocide run, which indeed is playing violently. The description for the Real Knife says, "About time". Problem is, by then [[BraggingRightsReward you have no need for it]], since the only battle left after you acquire the knife is against an enemy whom your attacks don't work on.]]
** The game has several unused music tracks. Some of these music tracks have rumors surrounding them--that "kingdescription" was used for an early version of the scene where you meet Asgore, that "star" was meant to be used when Madjick's attack orbs turn into hearts, and that "ruinspiano" was meant for a longer version of the ending showing the monsters leaving the Underground. In reality, all of these were invented by a fan to promote their animation project; when it fell through, they confessed they had made them all up. This hasn't stopped some people from swearing up and down that this is ''absolutely'' what they were intended for.
** ''Undertale'' attracts a lot of this, due to its reputation for large amounts of DevelopersForesight. See its [[{{Trivia/Undertale}} trivia page]] for a more complete list.

* Many games featuring {{Third Person Seductress}}es are subject to "nude code" rumors, most famously ''VideoGame/TombRaider'''s Lara Croft.

** ''DigimonWorld3'' continued the series tradition with rumors about secret partner Digimon you could add to your party by fulfilling some obtuse tasks and Digivolutions for existing partner Digimon who, naturally, required absurd stats to unlock. A notable example of the latter was the nonexistent "Kaseidramon", who was supposedly only unlockable on Veemon and was originally from a "Japan-only" Digimon movie. There even used to be a multi-page document floating around the Internet which detailed his backstory, explaining how he was originally conceived for ''DigimonTamers'' but had to be axed due to his considerably DarkerAndEdgier nature not sitting right with Toei Animation. Needless to say, Kaseidramon never existed, in either ''Digimon World 3'' or ''Tamers'', but some people believed the rumor anyway.

** Additionally, a persistent rumor held that, in the Japanese version of [[Anime/DigimonAdventure Piedmon's Last Jest]], Takeru and Hikari kiss, a scene that was supposedly censored out for the English version.

** Additionally, a persistent rumor held that, in the Japanese version of [[Anime/DigimonAdventure Piedmon's Last Jest]], Takeru and Hikari kiss, a scene that was supposedly censored out for the English version. An even more persistent rumor held that the series was only supposed to run for a dozen or so episodes, consisting only of the Devimon arc, but its popularity caused it to be extended into a full 50-episode-long series.[[note]]No official statement has ever been found to support this, and the way anime series are made and planned would make this course of events highly unlikely.[[/note]] Yet another rumor claimed that the franchise's first movie, included as part one of the localized ''Digimon: The Movie'' was originally a stand-alone project whose good reception led to a full animated series being produced; the movie was actually shown at a film festival the day before ''Adventure'''s first episode aired, making this impossible.

* ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth'' was born from an April Fool's preview by Creator/{{Capcom}}. They teased screenshots of Phoenix Wright freely walking through crime scenes to investigate. The joke was taken seriously by fans, especially at Court Records, as the date this was published wasn't on April 1st but rather during the week surrounding it. Due to positive fan reaction, Capcom actually made it a real game.
