* There is a VERY odd and persistent rumor about a movie called ''Shazaam'' starring Sinbad as a genie. (not to be confused with {{Kazaam}}) Despite there being no evidence of it existing and Sinbad himself [[WordOfGod offcial denying it]], hundreds of people claim to have seen it.

A common source of these is [[AprilFoolsDay April Fools']] issues of popular gaming magazines. After all, if it's in print, [[TVNeverlies it must be true!]] Other sources include mistranslated lines, aspects of the game being DummiedOut, and {{Missing Secret}}s. The Internet doesn't help either; while it's quick to debunk rumors, it's also very good at generating them.

** 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.
