** During the initial airing of the first season, there was a nasty rumor that Amon was to reveal himself as a somehow alive [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Aang]], fueled by a [[http://i.imgur.com/WLDKl.jpg very convincing photo]] of a supposed upcoming episode airing early in a foreign country. This was easier to believe due to the fact that the last episodes of ''AWesternAnimation/vatarTheLastAirbender'' actually did air early in foreign countries and had their plot points leaked to the west. In "Skeletons in the Closet," much to many a fan's relief, Amon's identity was revealed as [[StrangerBehindTheMask someone completely different]].

* In ''VideoGame/ClockTower: The First Fear'', the game features multiple endings, many of which are determined by whether or not each of Jennifer's friends are killed off during the game, bar a few exceptions, some varying on what Jennifer does in the last few screens, while others are determined by acts unrelated to the girls. Out of those endings, many players had speculated what would happen if Lotte survives, Anne ''and'' Laura survive, or all three girls live alongside Jennifer. Due to a mass number of glitches, it actually ''was'' possible to achieve these, ([[HesJustHiding or in the former's case, technically count this by chalking it up to "if I don't see it, it didn't happen"]]), but unlike the rumors which implied that all the girls can potentially be saved to earn the best ending possible, [[DevelopersForesight the designers had partially anticipated this enough to automatically lead to ending F]] [[spoiler: normally, ending F, which involves Jennifer being killed in the elevator, is triggered if she had, at the very least, not witnessed either of Lotte's deaths.

* There are many rumors about getting "secret" {{Mons}} not listed in the Digimon chart of ''DigimonWorld'', particularly ones that are known to exist in the game but aren't normally available. For example, Metal Etemon and Gigadramon function more or less properly, as do their digivolution items, but there is ''no way to obtain them'' without the help of a cheating device. [[SchmuckBait Although the "hints" you can find around the Internet tell a different story.]]

* ''Electronic Gaming Monthly'' once had an April issue prank where they claimed that you could unlock all the other actors of the Film/JamesBond series in the N64 game ''VideoGame/{{GoldenEye|1997}} 007''. There was some minor truth in that the game did have the data for the other actors present, but it had been DummiedOut over not being able to secure the likenesses of the other actors for the game. [[GameMod ROM hacking]] has allowed the fandom to (a tad bit messily) [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GoldenEye_007#All_Bonds add that back in]], though.

* The original ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' game had a rumor of a "secret cow level" that the player could access by [[StopPokingMe clicking on a certain cow]] in the town of Tristram. Although this rumor proved false, in ''VideoGame/DiabloII'' the developers put in an actual cow level in homage to the rumor; similarly, a secret Cow quest was added to the third-party expansion Hellfire, although it wasn't a genuine "Cow level". The phrase "There is no cow level" is also a ClassicCheatCode in ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'' and a loading screen tutorial tip in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. (It's false; there ''is'' a cow level. Thunder Bluff is ''full'' of [[http://www.wowwiki.com/File:Tauren_Dancing.gif Tauren]], 8 foot bipedal cows.)

* For April Fool's Day 2009, a quest involving an airship was implemented in ''[[Website/GaiaOnline zOMG!]]''. Of course, this being the first of April, the airship never went anywhere, instead crashing the game if one tried to fly in it. And being the first of April, it was natural that users would come up with their own pranks. So it was only a matter of time before someone decided to come up with some insane method to get the airship to fly. When someone finally did, people [[http://www.gaiaonline.com/forum/zomg-gaia-s-mmo/airship-and-airshark-guide-omg-april-fool-d/t.48633513/ ran with it]], with dozens of people contributing "information" about the new area. Though very few, if any, players fell for it, the prank was popular enough to turn the Airshark into a minor meme.

** Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly), the South East Asia region version of the game had one going around in the early 2000s. According to some questionable fansites, Asiasoft is extremely lazy, corrupt, or both. All it takes to become a GM is to have a new, clean account for a 6 months, and then to submit an application. Allegedly, if you succeed, they send you one heckuva high-end workstation fitted with 6 Full HD monitors. And then they won't care if you abuse it- numerous players on the Asia server have seen GMs abusing their power, and complaints to Asiasoft has allegedly fallen on deaf ears.

** There was another pervasive myth, dating back to 2001, about an underground farm that could be accessed by using a sapphire on a particular tree. Later versions of the myth swapped the sapphire for a herring. The farm was generally rumored to contain fantastic new armor; the herring era whispered of a place where the then-rare rune armor could be found scattered on the ground. One early resurgence of the story can be found [[http://web.archive.org/web/20020512023931/http://runetipit.board.dk3.com/viewtopic.php?topic=26759&forum=1&24 here]]. It's been said that this was the inspiration for the city of Zanaris.

** Case in point: in the earliest days of January 2015, [[TheWikiRule the parade's Wiki]] made a page announcing that a new ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} balloon would debut in the 2015 parade... just barely over a month after the ''last'' parade had happened, at a time when only the marching bands that would perform were known[[note]]they're always selected a year in advance[[/note]]. Information about new franchises to be represented in the parade generally starts to bubble during the summer, and gradually increases over the year until Thanksgiving month, when all of the elements come together. It's unlikely that Garfield will return to the parade[[note]]however, this didn't stop Macy's from resurrecting their Sinclair Dinosaur balloon for the 2015 parade after a 39-year absence[[/note]].
** Another article, surprisingly from an [[http://nestfullofnew.com/guide-2015-macys-thanksgiving-day-parade/ established site,]] reported that, among other things, there would be balloons based on VideoGame/AngryBirds, [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]], [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Optimus Prime]], and [[Franchise/StarWars R2-D2]], plus floats themed around [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]]'s [[MilestoneCelebration 60th Anniversary]] and ''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}'', in the 2015 parade. Of all of these, only the Angry Birds balloon has really been confirmed, as the other balloons are seemingly debunked via a [[https://d13yacurqjgara.cloudfront.net/users/215543/screenshots/2239465/ed-31_final_little_1x.jpg leaked promo picture]].

** IGN joked that an ExpansionPack for ''Brawl'' would be offered as part of a faux service called "Wii Expand". The supposed expansion in question is called ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl X: Extreme'', and it was said to be geared towards an adult audience, with gore and decapitations abound. [[http://video.ign.com/dor/articles/969169/ign-april-fools-videos/videos/supersmashexx_bc_spc_jpn.html Here is the footage of the supposed expansion pack in action]], as well as [[http://wii.ign.com/dor/articles/968498/smash-bros-goes-hardcore-video/videos/supersmashexx_spc_jpn.html an offscreen version]].

*** Interestingly enough, there actually IS a meaningful-looking code that's hard-wired into the game and not a result of the password calculations: "NARPAS SWORD" followed by blank spaces or zeroes[[note]]No, there's no Narpas Sword in the game. Due to how password components are spaced this is just how the game formats what should be "NAR PASSWORD." "NAR", depending on who you ask, stands for either '''N'''orth '''A'''merican '''R'''elease, '''N'''ot '''A''' '''R'''eal Password, '''N'''intendo of '''A'''merica '''R'''edmond (Redmond, WA is where Nintendo's US headquarters is located), or Tohru '''Nar'''ihito, who converted the game to cartridge format from the Famicom Disk System version, which used saves instead of passwords[[/note]].

* In fighting games, this takes the form of incessant rumors about unlockable characters. The most famous instance of this was the rumor about an impossibly hard way to cue a hidden final battle against a TrueFinalBoss named Sheng Long in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII: The World Warrior''. The character Ryu's win quote in the game was, "You must defeat Sheng Long to stand a chance [against me]" -- using the Chinese name for his Dragon Punch, and mistranslating it; the proper translation would be more like "You must ''overcome'' ''my'' Dragon Punch to stand a chance [against me]." A version of this rumor was later published by the magazine ''Electronic Gaming Monthly'' in 1992 as an April Fool's Day joke. It's rumored that the character Akuma in ''Super Street Fighter II Turbo'' was added because of the attention, as his appearance and abilities are similar to those allegedly possessed by Sheng Long; however, Capcom has neither confirmed or denied this (''EGM'' repeated the joke five years later after ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII: New Generation'' was revealed, [[http://fightingstreet.com/folders/variousinfofolder/shenglong/shenglong.html complete with more doctored screenshots and even character artwork]]).
