* There is a bit of copypasta floating around the Internet claiming, among other things, that in Creator/ETAHoffmann's ''Literature/TheNutcracker'' Marie that lived in a loveless household, that she was depicted lying in a pool of her own blood after injuring herself, and that her parents punished her for it by locking her in her room until she admitted she'd been naughty. Only the second claim is true: Marie breaks the glass in the front of her doll cabinet and slices her arm open, and her mother finds her lying there surrounded by her dolls and passed out from loss of blood. Yet not only her parents are concerned for her health, but her worried parents confined her to her room soely because she needed to recover from such an injury, not to punish her.[[note]](It also could be confusing another scene, the battle between the Nutcracker and Mouse King is off-screen but when the Nutcracker returns depending on translation, usually says that "the Mouse King has been bathed in his own blood.")[[/note]]

* Due to the highly divisive nature of the events leading to ''ComicBook/SecretEmpire'', there were two 4chan posts that claim as to what the true ending to the story and how it would shape ''ComicBook/MarvelGenerations'' and ''ComicBook/MarvelLegacy'':
** One post posits that while the comic ended mostly the same, but that ''Secret Empire'' was meant to mirror ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion'' with the World Security Council (a group introduced over in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse and brought over in ''ComicBook/CaptainAmericaSteveRogers'') would have taken over, proceeding to clamp down on super heroics, mimicking the ''ComicBook/DarkReign'' era. Many of the fallen elder heroes would have returned via ''Generations'' and would go on a trip to reconnect with the people while the younger heroes would lead the fight against the WSC. These titles would also be converted into a brand new Ultimate line -- Miles Morales' ''Spider-Man'' title would go back to ''Ultimate Spider-Man'', ''All-New X-Men''/''X-Men: Blue'' would become ''Ultimate X-Men'', ''Champions'' into ''The Ultimates'', etc.
** Another post posits a quite different ending and follow up. This post would claim that ''Secret Empire'' was originally planned to end with Sam Wilson becoming Captain America once and for all, defeating an unrepentant Steve Rogers. With many of the previous heroes either dead or disgraced in some way, the legacy characters would have fallen into the spotlight. It's claimed that the immense backlash against HYDRA!Steve lead to a hastily re-written ending to how it is now, which holds credence in that the story has a plotline involving another Steve Rogers trapped in Kobik's mind that doesn't connect with the main story until the very end and the hastily thrown in hook to ''Generations''

* There's a legend among London architecture enthusiasts that George Gilbert Scott's St Pancras station was simply a [[RecycledScript carbon copy]] of his original design for the Foreign Office building in Whitehall, rejected for being too Gothic. Examination of the actual Foreign Office proposal shows that this is a complete urban legend (possibly originating as a joke).

** When the series was new, gamers didn't know what could and could not be done. There were various rumors on how you could date or even marry villagers, add new buildings like libraries to the town, start those clubs villagers mention, and get your own car similar to Gracie's. These rumors died out by ''Wild World''.

* There's been a hoax going around associated with ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' It involves a screenshot of a scene showing that Boo drew a drawing of her mother and "Uncle Roger" having sex. The picture is photoshopped. Despite this, people still claim it's a real case of GettingCrapPastTheRadar or that it was on the first edition before later being censored.

* There's one about ''Series/ElChavoDelOcho'', very popular on [=YouTube=], about how the original show ends with the eponymous Chavo dead after he gets hit by a car. This is totally false; the original run ended with the trip to Acapulco three-parter.
** "Street child killed by car" does happen in the companion book ''El Diario del Chavo del Ocho'', although to a friend of el Chavo, and before the events of the show.
* It's commonly assumed by Star Trek fans that the instrumental "Archer's Theme" was originally written to be the opening credits theme for ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' but was replaced by the Russell Watson cover "Where My Heart Will Take Me". Fairly plausible it syncs up with the opening credits perfectly, and a variation plays over the closing credits but not actually true: according to composer Dennis [=McCarthy=] he created "Archer's Theme" at a fairly late stage, and actually wrote it to match the opening credits rather than the other way around.

It's said Nick [[HideYourLesbians refused]] the plot, and they replaced it with the final ending. Alas, no one seems to have any concrete proof to where this rumor originates.

* 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 been dismissed by many Disney historians and it's highly unlikely the short will ever resurface, if it ever existed at all.
* 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 made a joke or two about it on Twitter.

** 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.

to:

** Undertale 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.

** For a while after the Western release of ''Anime/PokemonIChooseYou'' some voices (that were even here on this very site) said that in the Japanese version there was a [[TheStinger post-credits scene]] removed from the Western dubs featuring Giovanni and Mewtwo, hinting at a remake of the first movie being released in 2018. Reviews of the Japanese version such as [[http://dogasu.bulbagarden.net/old_news_archive/july_2017.html Dogasu's]] make clear that the only thing said at the end in the Japanese version was "the next movie will be released next year" in text form, with no extra scene whatsoever. It's unknown from where the rumor came from.

*** Also, the rumor about Silas being a GayOption can very easily be debunked by the fact that there were ''never'' any placeholder supports in any of the appropriate areas. Not only did Silas and a male Avatar not have an S-Rank at any point, Sophie and a female Kana never had any sibling supports, either.
