* In ''VideoGame/WanganMidnight Maximum Tune'', the player can earn "dress-up" parts through winning Ghost Battles to change the visual appearance of their car (spoilers, decals, tires, neon lights, etc.). As stated on official pages and in operator manuals, these changes are purely cosmetic. Despite this, there are players who, after 10 years of the dress-up system being in existence, still insist that dress-up parts influence vehicle performance in some way.

** There used to be a way to get to GM Island, and a weird rumor suggests that if you make it there, you'll be crowned an in-game GM. The truth is that if you do get to GM Island, you most likely get banned.

** The unmarked grave in Stormwind Cemetery. It has no statue or plaque, but does have a Lordaeron symbol. Who's buried there? Fans have some theories. Some think the remains of Arthas Menethil (as in, the Lich King) are buried there, which would explain the symbol. (When this was asked at Blizzcon 2011, [[ShrugOfGod Chris Metzen said he's not sure if that's true or not]], but it is an interesting idea.) It's also theorized that it's an empty plot intended for Varian himself when he dies, given its proximity to the grave of his wife. However, it is strange that he'd be buried in a grave with a Lordaeron symbol instead of a Stormwind symbol.

* ''VideoGame/Rayman3HoodlumHavoc'' has the 2D Nightmare, a DummiedOut minigame in the UsefulNotes/NintendoGamecube version (among a bunch of other unlockable minigames). First, people argued over whether or not it even exists (emulator hacks and cheats were eventually developed that prove it does). Then people argued over how to access it legitimately (still unknown).

** "Stop 'n' Swop" is an unlockable feature that displays special items you collect. The plan was for these items to be used in the sequel ''VideoGame/BanjoTooie'' (as hinted at by Mumbo Jumbo in the ending cutscene, even). The problem is that many of them, including a critical Ice Key, were DummiedOut or are in otherwise totally inaccessible areas, so there were a ton of strange rumors about how to get them. A fansite eventually had to release codes that allowed you to collect them; many of these codes are incredibly obtuse and as ridiculous as any rumor. Creator/{{Rareware}}'s original plan was for the items to be transferred between cartridges by swapping them out while the game was running (hence the name "Stop 'n' Swop"), but this proved to be beyond the Nintendo 64's capabilities[[note]]early designs for the console stored game data in RAM long enough for players to swap the cartridges, but later versions reduced this time significantly, making the mechanic unfeasible[[/note]]. ''Banjo-Tooie'' had to add in those features into the game itself (through items that resemble ''Banjo-Kazooie'' cartridges). Further rumors suggested that there are totally "legit" ways to get these items without using passwords (which suggests the only reason you don't get rewards for these items is because you used passwords to get them).

* ''VideoGame/ClubPenguin'' had an iceberg, and there was a rumor that if enough people drilled on it something would happen. When the game was about to shut down, it was discovered that the iceberg would flip over revealing a dance floor.

* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsDestiny'' has the infamous "armor bug", which is actually the result of enemy units packing far greater firepower than most other games provide them such that the normally NighInvulnerable super robots that rely on tanking hits through strong armor instead lack enough durability to survive through this method. This is such a radical departure from the norm for the franchise, which usually strongly favors super robots, that rumors began of a GameBreakingBug by players who didn't run the calculations.

** That if you beat the original NES game twice in a row, you can play ''Super Mario Bros. 2''. Chalk this up to a misunderstanding from the mid-1980s; there is a NewGamePlus which makes the game somewhat harder by replacing all Goombas with much tougher Buzzy Beetles, and people mistook that to be the game's actual sequel. It's not as if they understood that if [=SMB2=] had already been completed, [[RevenueEnhancingDevices Nintendo would just release it separately]]. Not to mention, the NewGamePlus unlocks a level select as well -- if ''Super Mario Bros. 2'' were made already, why not skip to it right away by skipping to and beating World 8-4?

** A similar rumor held that the game got more and more difficult with each subsequent completion, with Bowsers eventually replacing every Goomba or equally far-out scenarios (in reality, beating 8-4 in "hard" mode just repeats "hard" mode again).

* 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 emulate 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.
