You may think you know everything there is to know about Nintendo, but you probably don't. Okay, sure, it’s definitely impressive that you can name each of the Koopalings, that shiny Mewtwo in your completed Pokedex is also pretty cool and maybe you can finish the Ocarina of Time’s Water Temple without swearing, but that doesn’t mean you know everything. Some of the most popular and well-known Nintendo facts are actually false no matter how many times you’ve heard them or wish they were true.

It’s common knowledge that Mario was known as Jumpman in the Donkey Kong arcade game, but was that his original name? Many Nintendo gamers believe Donkey Kong is a mistranslation of “Monkey Kong,” but that is not the case. The NES wasn’t the first home console released by Nintendo. A lesser known console was released earlier, but only in Japan. Speaking of the NES, it’s very difficult to pinpoint when the original Super Mario Bros. was actually released. Contrary to popular belief, it’s actually pointless to blow into Nintendo cartridges. If you’ve played the original Metroid, you’ve heard of Justin Bailey, but did he work on the game? The movie The Wizard led us to believe gamers played Super Mario Bros. 3 at the Nintendo World Championships but it never happened. Nintendo didn’t even develop the Power Glove! While the characters of Star Fox may look like they have robotic legs, we assure you they are normal. Don’t even get us started on trying to understand the genders of Yoshi and Birdo. Without further ado, here are 10 lies you were told about Nintendo!
