I remember hearing some really ridiculous rumors from friends as a kid about outlandish secrets in video games. Obviously in retrospect they were completely full of it. What are yours?
As for me.
That you could bring Aeris back to life in Final Fantasy VII.
There was a quest rumor in my circle.
The requirement was you had to be nice to Aeris and mean to Tifa every time you had a choice ( buy the rose, be nice on the gold saucer date, ect). Then on disk 3 you get the key to sector 5 and Aeris’s ghost will be in the church ( she is there). You also need the medicine from wal-market that you can only get on disk 1. You take the medicine and heal the crazy dude in the pipe near Aeris’s house. Now cured he thanks you by offering a favor/wish. The rumor was that if you were nice enough her ghost would talk and start a quest line ending with you wishing her back alive with the crazy pipe guy.
Her ghost was in the church and you can heal the guy in the pipe. Nothing else about the rumor worked.
