Ex: Three Trouble Kings
One of the patterns in the Smash series was actually about the first event match. In Melee "Trouble King" was the very first Event match where you would fight King Koopa (Bowser) while playing as Mario.
In Brawl "Two Trouble Kings" was the first Event match where you fought both Bowser and King Dedede as Mario.

Many of us predicted that "Three Trouble Kings" would be the first Event match of Smash 4, and that King K. Rool would be the 3rd king; because of his popularity and being the only other notable "king" of Nintendo villians... Of course that didn't happen and alas it turned out to be a false pattern that didn't continue sadly...

I like the Chunky Kong assist trophy leak, that had people frantically trying to spot him at E3 demos. And then the guy who made the leak came out and revealed he made it up to screw with anyone making fake leaks. If it had Chunky, he knew it was fake.

Or the great Monado Monday:
A new character trailer was announced that would be streamed about a week after announcement. Said trailer announcement was retweeted by Monolith Soft. The famous Gematsu leak had Shulk playable. People thought that retweet meant Shulk would be announced. Then the guy who brought us the Gematsu leak said "Enjoy your Shulk".

Said trailer hit, and no Shulk in sight. Said leak had Chrom playable, too. Guess who was announced not playable in the trailer?

Speaking of Chrom: Ike will be cut and replaced with Chrom. That follows the pattern of "Marth + Newest Lord", based on the pattern of Roy not being in Brawl. As everyone knows, one occurrence is a pattern.

Before Ryu: We could only get one third party character per company!

Before Cloud: Third party characters must have strong ties to Nintendo or they'll never get in!

I remember him saying that he might've gotten it on camera and that he would review his footage the next day since he was apparently tired that night. He explained it with such detail about how bananas came down and people around him were laughing, and supposedly he was a reliable source on smashboards...yeah. I unfortunately believed him with false hope, mostly because I wanted it to be true, and we all know how that turned out...

The day of that reveal trailer had the smash community exploding in disbelief. I was so relieved when those predictions were false (even though I kinda wanted Chrom playable). What a real game-changer that was!

Speaking of Chrom: Ike will be cut and replaced with Chrom. That follows the pattern of "Marth + Newest Lord", based on the pattern of Roy not being in Brawl. As everyone knows, one occurrence is a pattern.

Yep people were so sure Chrom would be the new Fire Emblem rep but we pretty much got everyone but Chrom, haha.

Well that was a fake leak that turned out to be true. You mean the 3DS pic right?

I remember that. Leak model was different from the actual model in the game. Not often a leak gets revealed to be fake by the character in the leak being playable.

Gematsu.
Don't forget. Always, somewhere, someone is fighting for you. As long as you remember her, you are not alone.

SmashingBros and Oil_Panic are correct about the leak being fake. It was incredibly well done though.

Oh my gosh there's seriously a wiki page dedicated to the numerous fake leaks? Wow.
