There's a typo on the line "Kintaro was origially meant to have a intro in Mortal Kombat II like Goro did in Mortal Kombat?" Someone should fix that. Mario Weaboo 01:02, 17 August 2013 (EDT)
You should ask an admin. --Hiccup (talk) 11:31, 3 September 2013 (EDT)
There's ton of them. Mario Weaboo (talk) 22:38, 3 September 2013 (EDT)

...that the NES version of Action 52 could have had eight more awful games?
This has been debunked on the game's talk page, so I suppose it should be removed from DYK. -- Sheeza (talk) 00:17, 12 November 2013 (EST)

Final Smashes

This suggestion was implemented.

"...that there are voice clips in Super Smash Bros. for two characters' Final Smashes?"
Actually, in the Super Smash Bros. page, there are six. TempleofDreams (talk) 18:29, 26 January 2014 (EST)

Why can't users edit this?

I mean, we can edit everything else on the site. Robotortoise (talk) 00:58, 14 September 2014 (EDT)

For exactly the reason the protection reason says? "this shouldn't be publicly editable, it's too easy to break". — Vague / Rant 01:02, 14 September 2014 (EDT)
also because this template only exists as part of the wiki's front page, which you can't edit either --Devin (talk) 01:17, 14 September 2014 (EDT)
That's annoying. If people could edit it, it wouldn't always be the same DYK facts. They're getting kinda stale. Robotortoise (talk) 01:21, 14 September 2014 (EDT)
So propose new facts here on the Talk page, it's not limited to being a complaints page. — Vague / Rant 01:52, 14 September 2014 (EDT)
Huh. That's....a great idea. Okay. Robotortoise (talk) 02:14, 14 September 2014 (EDT)

Robotortoise (talk) 17:18, 14 September 2014 (EDT)

I got one more. "Did you know...that Kid Icarus: Uprising has two fully orchestrated unused music tracks?"

Fact Ideas

I have a few fact ideas:

... that Mario Bros. has a sprite of an unknown creature?

... that the Port Test Cartridge has early sprites from Popeye?

... that according to Ten Pin Alley, Alex Shatsky sucks?

... that SpongeBob's Truth or Square on PSP has unfinished versions of its cutscenes?

This suggestion was implemented.

My Ideas

Here's some I thought of.

This suggestion was implemented.

* ... that Lakitu's behavior in Super Mario Bros. is the result of a bug?
  • ... that Mega Man 3 has a large number of early and unused graphics?

Super Princess Peach

The current Super Princess Peach fact mentions "Koopa Kids" instead of "Koopalings". (They were called Koopa Kids in the cartoons, but Koopalings in the games.) --Flicky (talk) 16:53, 11 January 2015 (EST)

This typo is still there btw —AquaBat (talk) 22:13, 25 March 2019 (EDT)

My Suggestions!

  • ...that Pikmin has a debug executable that enables the game to run natively on PC?
This suggestion was implemented.

    Suggestion again

    This suggestion was implemented.

    * ...that College Football USA '97 contains a hidden team known as the Roms?

    You can also link to the SNES version (the above links to the Genesis version) as both have identical text and features. Raymie (talk) 13:14, 3 April 2015 (EDT)

    I think you could reasonably link to both. Probably reword it to:
    • ...that both the SNES and Genesis versions of College Football USA '97 contain a hidden team known as the Roms?

    Just a thought. -WarioBarker (talk) 07:07, 1 June 2015 (EDT)

    Wind Waker clarification

    The "Did you know......that The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker has many, many unused rooms?" should probaly be clarified to how many rooms. To leave room for expansion, I'd suggest saying something like "over ___ rooms." Also, it should probably link to this page instead of the main Wind Waker page. Robotortoise (talk) 22:34, 23 May 2015 (EDT)

    Just to throw in my two cents, I believe that it would be more preferable to have two links for that line. Specifically, a link to the main article for the section containing the title of the game and a second link to the unused rooms for the section containing the number of rooms. --Sgv Sth (talk) 04:35, 24 May 2015 (EDT)

    Manhunt 2 Fact

    I see we have a fact for Manhunt 2. Since the page is garbage at this given moment, I don't think it's a great idea to link it on the front page of the website; the sucks template even says it's embarrassing. Improving that article is also an option as well. --Chpexo-sig.pngChpexo

    Unitalicised titles

    This suggestion was implemented.

    The following entries in the Did You Know column have game titles that are not in italics:
    • ...that Catherine contains an original arrangement of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl's wild battle theme?
    • ...that the devil was hidden inside of a reversed version of Cuphead's theme song, which only plays if you pirated the game?
    • ...that the Game Boy Camera has all of the content used in an undumped CoroCoro Comics version that was never released to the public?
    • ...that Star Fox was renamed Star Wing due to potential legal issues in Germany?
    • ...that inside the Mario Kart Arcade GP ROM, there exists a picture of the Beslan school hostage crisis, a major terrorist attack?
    Just a heads-up. --BSonirachi (talk) 15:34, 26 January 2018 (EST)

    Super Mario 64

    The entry "...that Super Mario 64 has an unused Yoshi egg graphic?" should be edited to "...that Super Mario 64 has an unused Yoshi egg graphic?" to disambiguate the link from the 64DD version. Rjd1922 (talk) 23:33, 16 December 2018 (EST)

    Kemco’s licensed games

    Since I recently saw a YouTube video bringing it up, why don’t we refer to the numerous licensing troubles Kemco faced with their games in a DYK, linking to the various pages we currently have? We’re missing a couple of games, but it’s enough.

    (By the way, some of the errors and typos users bring up above are still present)

    It was hard to find information on this particular template, and I'm still finding my footing on this site, so let me know if I've done anything wrong here. Also, let me know if this information doesn't belong on the articles's "notes" page, or if it should just be on the main one.

    I feel like it's been forever since any of these suggestions have actually been added to the template.
