** ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' was rumored to have a nude code. This was entirely spun out of misunderstanding a scene where Mega Man accidentally [[ShowerOfAwkward walks in on Roll in the shower]]; the only thing you see is Mega Man's embarrassed expression. People who hadn't seen the seen assumed this means the ''player'' can see Roll naked.

* There's a rumor that for one of Creator/WaltDisney's birthdays, two Disney animators drew a short of WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse and WesternAnimation/MinnieMouse having sex. According to the story, Walt laughed, asked who made it, immediately fired both of them, and then ordered all copies burned. Whether the story is true or not is hard to figure out. Its source has dismissed by many Disney historians and it's highly unlikely the short will ever resurface, if it ever existed at all.

* Some time around 2013-2014, someone edited the Italian Wikipedia page for ''WesternAnimation/BabyLooneyTunes'' to mention the existence of two unaired episodes that are ''way more'' DarkerAndEdgier than the remainder of the show featuring Zeno, Sylvester's EvilTwin who wants to kill his brother in his desire to TakeOverTheWorld. The page for the character was a blatant copypaste of the description for [[Manga/ZatchBell a completely different character]] [[NameIsTheSame sharing that name]] and the fact that it clearly mentions that MoralGuardians banned the episode only in Italy when there is no proof of such episode existing in any language made the hoax obvious.

*** There's apparently also a few ways to unlock the DummiedOut Governor's Island. Again, no footage.

* One persistent rumor on a few gaming sites said that jumping off of the Statue of Liberty 30 times in the game of ''VideoGame/SpiderMan2'' will let you play as Kermit the Frog. Sadly, this does not happen.



** According to some, [[ThatOneSideQuest reaching 100%]] in ''VideoGame/SpiderMan2'' would add a "Change" icon to play as Doc Ock somewhere on the game. There's absolutely no footage of this. There's apparently also a few ways to unlock the DummiedOut Governor's Island.

*** As Lizard was originally planned to appear, several people claim that he is still in the game. Usually the theories say that he's in the sewers, accessible through a certain manhole after a certain requirement has been met.

* Some Spider-man games have a few. The first Movie tie-in game allowed playing as the Green Goblin, so people claimed that you could play the sequels as their respective villains.

** 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.

** The most famous of them is [[TheMissingno the legitimate Missingno. glitch]], which seems [[RealityIsUnrealistic as insane and arbitrary as any of the rumors]] -- unless you're versed in programming, because it's ''real''. If you talk to a seemingly irrelevant tutorial NPC in Viridian City and then Surf along a specific beach in Cinnabar Island, you can make weird Pokemon show up, like Golbat and Snorlax over the level cap of 100, and glitched "Pokémon" called Missingno. and 'M.[[note]]There are at least twelve such glitched Pokémon, some of which are only available through [=GameShark=], as chronicled by [[http://www.glitchcity.info/ Glitch City Laboratories]]. The best is [=LM4=], which is a blur of dots that will, at level 18, evolve three times back-to-back: First into Clefairy, then into Clefairy ''again'', and then into Nidoking.[[/note]] They're actually placeholder values in the game, and so catching them makes even weirder stuff happen - in-battle graphics are screwy, the Hall of Fame will be permanently glitched, and if you put it in a PC box you might not be able to ever retrieve it (depending on your name). Missingno. got so popular for another reason, however. The sixth item in your inventory will be cloned to 128 after encountering it or 255 after capturing it. This means with a little planning, you can create infinite numbers of rare and powerful items like Master Balls and Rare Candies, which makes the game [[GameBreaker laughably easy]].\\

** [[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 screen 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.

** Another myth involves sending Nintendo proof you're disabled so they'll tweak the settings so Pokemon came to you rather than the other way around; even if that were a thing, Niantic Labs--who made the game--would be the entity to contact, not Nintendo.

** One might expect rumors about how to catch legendaries, especially Mew; but such claims were quickly disproven, as it became clear that they cannot spawn normally and have to be event-based. Instead, the rumor-mill went wild over Ditto, a non-legendary who was mysteriously absent from the game at release. The most sane theory is that it was region-exclusive to South America (where the game's release was delayed for some time), but this turned out to be wrong. Other ideas range from somewhat believable--a glitch where a Pokémon appears to change species when caught supposedly means it's actually a Ditto--to the strange and convoluted: one theory claims that because a rainbow appearing in the first anime episode with Ditto seems to lack a few colors, and most of the colors it ''does'' have appear as a decorative feature in [=PoGo=]'s menu, that somehow this is part of an elaborate puzzle to make Ditto appear. Eventually, Ditto was simply added in an update with the gimmick of appearing to be a different Pokemon until after being caught.

** That you can drive a car. Actual cars do show up in the game, and one NPC talks about getting a driver's license, but you can't drive one yourself. It's a nice send-up of old Gen II rumors that you can ride your Pokémon rather than travel by bike, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMnwB6neGlY which becomes relevant in Pokémon X and Y]] and even more so in ''Sun and Moon''.

*** A grassy path can be seen continuing north from Bill's house, but you can't access it. It became commonly known as "Bill's Secret Garden", and it was said to contain extremely rare Pokémon, usually Mew, [[EarlyBirdCameo Togepi]], or [[GannonBanned Pikablu]]. Others claimed it contains the starters Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur -- they can't be caught anywhere else in the game (and as breeding didn't exist back then, most people wouldn't want to trade their starters just to complete the Pokédex). If you use a GameShark to walk through walls, you can access it, but it's a patch the height of your character and as wide as Bill's house with nothing in it. In another fit of AscendedFanon, there ''is'' a "secret garden" area in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', accessible only after completing the entire Pokédex (bar Legendaries) and containing many rare and unique Pokémon, including a shiny Haxorus.

*** The Hall of Fame room, where Professor Oak records your victory over the Elite Four at the end of the game, is wide enough to seem to stretch past the screen borders, but you can't explore it. Legend has it that if you beat the Elite Four a ridiculous number of times, complete the Pokèdex, and fulfill various other equally insane conditions, Professor Oak will snap during the cutscene, yell "I'm sick of this!", and leave you there to explore the room, which was alleged to contain [[GannonBanned Mewthree]]. Like with Bill's Secret Garden, Gameshark has shown there's nothing there.
