The Battle Toads example on the main page mentions E3 but not the year, so could someone with more knowledge and interest add which E3 it was announced at? Was it this years? Cause i remember hearing or seeing something about a new BT game around E3 2018...

I read up in RomHacking.Net that there are Golbez and General Leo Edition of FF4 and 6 hacks that allows their "urban legends" to happen.

Removing "and that he died at age 18 of mercury poisoning" from the 2003 Fullmetal Alchemist example in the Anime/Manga folder, because Dante states in episode 50 that Envy died of mercury poisoning (and it's also confirmed on the Fullmetal Alchemist wiki).

Do real world events count?

An example I want to add is how release dates of Dragon Quest was said to be restricted to weekends and holidays in Japan because it had caused a lot of disruptions (which btw is false).

Is Blaze mentioning Crisis City in Sonic Generations even an urban legend? It's true, but the method listed on the page (saving her with Modern Sonic) was incorrect.

The real method is to complete the Modern mission "Blaze: Piercing the Flames" and then talk to her, as I added to the article. Her exact words are "I never thought I'd find myself in Crisis City again".

  • One of the most well-travelled examples; there were many, many rumoured ways to play as Goro, Shang Tsung, or Reptile in the first Mortal Kombat. None of them worked.

I just added the part about Reptile. I think that was only a myth. Correct it if I'm wrong.

Why does this page even exist? Nobody outside a very few specialized nerds are even going to understand it.

Tvtropes is for very specialized nerds. Other people being able to understand most pages is a secondary bonus.

The video for the futuristic Zelda trailer is gone. Does anyone know the name of it, or if there's another video on You Tube?

Neat, new system. Turrican here, I thought it might be interesting to point out ages after the edit that the "Those lines. What are those lines on the left there?" joke at the bottom of the page actually referred to a TV Tropes format error at the time that added black lines in the margin. Thankfully the gag still works thanks to the spoiler someone added later on.

Incidentally, the TV Tropes bonus level is really awesome.

I am working on folderizing the examples as they are kind of cluttered up.

Does anyone know how to decode T42-V86-454-559-T68-R24-450-O28-592-42P-28E-4S3 into english?

If you view the page's source HTML via your browser's "View Source" function, you won't find anything unusual. But if you click the link at the bottom of the page itself that says "view source" in the blue button, then you'll see an extra two word message at the end...

Well, turning all the numbers into letters (except for 0, which is just discarded) will come out as...


"RX" can also be "RBD" if you wanna do it as 2, 4 instead of 24.

You could also turn them all into numbers, but I'll leave that up to somebody who wants to work out whether the first one is 19, 4, 2 or 19, 42. And also whether you add, subtract, multiply, or divide the numbers, and do what where. I'm sure they all add up to 666.

As far as I can tell, the sequence "T42-V86-454-559-T68-R24-450-O28-592-42P-28E-4S3" is just the letters for the words "TV Tropes" surrounded by random numbers

I just deleted this from the description for the reason given in the edit history.

If the Urban Legend of Zelda is referring to an entire level/part of the game it may be a Cow Level (where a level and/or alternate reality [or dimension] is rumored to exist in Fanon but actually does not). If the Urban Legend of Zelda refers to a cheat code it may be a Naked Lara Croft or a Blood Code (depending on whether the thing in question is an attempt to recover a nostalgic part of the game that has been removed, or just wishful thinking).

So yeah, if the guy who wrote this paragraph wants to create trope pages for Cow Level, Naked Lara Croft or Blood code, by all means do so. Assuming they don't already have equivalent tropes of course.

EDIT: Ah crap, I added this in the wrong place. Just assume this is its own topic.

I don't get why they're being restored... they have no place here. They're straight misuse.

Because this is not something that only happens in relation to computer games. All media get fandom rumours.

Yes, this one looks like an unnecessarily media specific trope.

^^ And those wind up on the Urban Legends page.

Now mind you, I am super, super, super into splitting Urban Legends into "Works centered on Urban Legends" and "Urban Legends about Works," and I think this is unnecessarily media-specific, but this is media specific and until the aforementioned split on Urban Legends actually happens, listing non-video game examples here is pointless and redundant.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
