* ''VideoGame/Marathon'':
** The original game was rumored to have hidden levels with wall-climbing invincible red Drinnols. It was started by the ''Marathon Secrets Guide'', and [[TVNeverLies everyone was inclined to believe them]]. They were eventually {{defictionaliz|ation}}ed when the game was ported to the Aleph One engine.
** There were false rumors of a true 3D ''Marathon'' game called ''Dr'At'Er'', and one website claimed to have screenshots of it (which were actually ''VideoGame/Quake'' screenshots). The game's title is also [[DudeNotFunny "retard"]] [[SdrawkcabName spelled backwards]].

* Due to the [[HardModeFiller predictable structure]] of ''ChuckieEgg'' (a new gameplay twist every eighth level), combined with its [[NintendoHard extreme difficulty]], it's not really surprising that there are rumours about twists that don't actually appear in the game, most notably a series of levels with two Mother Ducks. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen This was indeed planned]], but never implemented.

** [[http://tinycartridge.com/post/866743831/super-creepy-pokemon-hack Pokemon Black]] (not to be confused with one-half of ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'') was a rumored bootleg cartridge or romhack. It gives you a "ghost" Poké that you can never switch out of your party, which no opponents can attack, and whose only move, "Curse", is almost always a OneHitKO. If you fight a trainer, each curse causes the ball containing your opponent's mon to disappear from his roster. When he has no Pokémon left, you can now curse him directly; doing so causes him to disappear forever (or turn into an InstantGravestone). When you beat the Elite Four, you get a FlashForward to yourself as an old man, you see a vision of every mon and trainer you cursed, and your ghost [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters turns on you]] and subjects you to a HopelessBossFight. When your HP hits zero, it curses you; the scren turns black and will not change. If you reset the game, your save file will be erased.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' comes with very little in the way of explanation beyond "throw balls at Pokemon to catch them", meaning that rumour is absolutely rife. Eeveelutions are determined either randomly or by moveset, and whichever is true, the other is automatically this (although the one about nicknaming Eevee Rainer, Sparky or Pyro appears to be true). There was also a rumour for a while that the local-area Mon detector would flash green when you were facing towards the one you'd highlighted; that turned out to actually be its reset animation. Then there was the one about sending Nintendo proof you were disabled so they'd tweak the settings so Pokemon came to you rather than the other way around; even if that was a thing, it'd be more likely to be Niantic Labs - who make it - rather than Nintendo.

*** Missingno. was also a ''complete'' UrbanLegendOfZelda in most European countries, where the versions finally released they patched some of the glitches, including the ones that led to Missingno. Unfortunately for those European gamers, gaming publications (largely borrowing and translating from North America) didn't get the memo and left in the steps to get there, which now did nothing. The glitches that remained didn't help matters there.

* Some ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'' fans where convinced by a long-gone Wikipedia edit that a character named Satine would be featured as Craig's love interest in an episode called "Snake In Love"; the rumor somewhat died down after the final 7 episodes where revealed but Satine is still treated as an actual character in some circles.

** ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha 3'' had a rumor that it was possible for a fighter to purposely throw the fight [[CoolLoser in a unique way]], particularly Balrog the boxer (Mike Bison in Japan). Through various arcane controller inputs, you can have Balrog [[ManBitesMan bite his opponent]] (as Mike Tyson had recently done in RealLife) until the fight is called. ''VideoGame/SuperStreetFighterIV'' used one of those inputs (full joystick rotation and all three punch buttons simultaneously) for Balrog's new Ultra Combo, which didn't involve biting but did involve other things not allowed in boxing (stomping the opponent's foot, headbutting, and elbowing them in the face).

Added DiffLines:

* There is a screenshot of a ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' episode circulating around the internet that shows Dipper and Mabel with [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos the Slender Man]] watching from behind. The screenshot is actually fake; viewing the episode itself yields no Slender Man.

*** "Mewthree" was so common that it was grounds for a {{Gannon Ban|ned}}. It originally derives from screencaps of an armored Mewtwo in [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} the anime]], people thinking it was a different Pokémon altogether. Mewtwo got ''two'' Mega Evolution forms in Gen IV, but people saw some screenshots before the concept of Mega Evolution was made public, reviving the rumor for a bit.
