I need some clarification on something regarding the Google theory.
View attachment 220759
I thought these four characters triggered the ad. When did this occur and does the ad still show up for Joker?
There was a period where those four weren't triggering the ad, but literally everything else was triggering the ad, which led to the theory that the characters had been turned into Negative Keywords. IE, Nintendo doing hasty damage control once they caught on to what we were doing

Interesting. I'm curious if there are more characters that have the same result.

Is this currently the condition of these four names in regards to searching them on Google? Are they still negative keywords?

Don't lose heart JUST yet

Also, the response in the post above included the Amazon analogy I proposed in an earlier post:

Of course you can have a Google Ad leading to an Amazon listing for your OWN product

Nintendo is a private company selling their own private products however.

Here's the way I see it: Nintendo is historically infamous for how vicious they are for protecting their property: They flew someone out to collect a leaked copy of Pokemon X/Y and reprimanded the Mom and Pop store that sold it early, and they nailed the ESRB Leak guy insanely fast.

Let's say the worst case happens and it's really some troll playing 5D chess with us all. Nintendo has proven that they've got an ear to the ground over what we're all talking about; the second they'd catch wind of a troll using their property and website to pull a prank, all they'd have to do would be to call Google and get their info from Adsense and nail them in an instant.

Whoever made the Grinch Leak just posted it on 4chan, kept their head down, and let us do the work for them. If a troll is behind this, they'd be in for a world of legal hurt

If this were a troll, the ads would have been gone the second this theory took off. But the fact that they're still up says to me that this is in fact Nintendo's doing... all that remains to be seen is if this means anything or if we're just making a mountain out of a molehill

Was anyone actually mad at the grinch leak ? i wasn't it was a really good leak IMO had actual convincing backstory (gamexplain ignoring it made it feel suspicusly more real)

what i was mad at was sakurai thought it was a good idea to end the smash hype train with Ken a echo (who sucks IMO) & incinaroar the most boring meh predictible pokemon pick he could of ever made & who barely anyone actually wanted 800+ pokemon & the dumb obveus marketing choice :/ plus mewtwo is a cat so why ANOTHER cat pokemon ? hell I'll take magickarp over incinaroar anyday.

OH YEAH & Piranha Plant a cut base roster character that no one wanted or asked for a generic mario baddy pushed to promotional DLC we have proof of this

the google leak seams real so far IMO but if it is fake GOOD ! only banjo & joker seam like good picks IMO sure this leak would conferm banjo & I want him but those characters are awful IMO

Ken's objectively the best echo. He's the most unique and the most iconic character who got the echo treatment.

Its only mid may and im already getting excited for E3 for possible dreams come trues or shattered. lol Heres hoping for Banjo-Kazooie making their grand entrance!!!

Also: lets just talk for a minute about details. You think IF BK is actually in Smash you think Xbox will let Nintendo decide on how they want to fix him up? like detail him will they go for the older looking Nuts N Bolts or from the games in N64?

Wait, if Incineroar is so predictable, how come his absence wasn't a red flag for Grinch leak's legitimacy?

EDIT: Also I find it weird that being deceived is not a problem for you, as long as the said lie is a pleasant one.

I’d say the same for this Google Theory and Erdrick. This is another reason I don’t buy this theory.
Again. There was never guaranteed to be a SE rep. Tansuit's source didn't even say Erdrick. Erdrick is Tansuit's personal opinion. Verge released a list of characters. Said Erdrick was his personal opinion. And when a character goes from base game, to first DLC, to "don't worry its still DLC but later" it makes me really doubt a SE rep is coming, If it has been known about for so long. Something more would have come out of it by now.

I've got a feeling most of us are being a little too cautious due to the little troll who cried Grinch. Though the Google theory has a few hangups, the semantics are far more connected to Nintendo as opposed to some French printing firm. We already know this cannot be faked, that much we know now. I believe we need to apply KISS, aka Keep It Simple Stupid. Complex explanations for this theory only serve to complicate things.

Yes. And I'm sure both Sakurai AND Microsoft would go for the older look. Microsoft has been pushing that one lately instead of the N&B one. I could maybe see N&B getting representation (a L.O.G. spirit or whatever) but not through Banjo and Kazooie themselves.

You have to admit that there's been an interesting set of events happening lately in regards to the Google Theory lineup:

Ninja Gaiden 2 suddenly gets an Xbox One X port
Rumors and whispers that FromSoftware is going to announce a new game at E3, possibly Dark Souls 4
Rare personally invites First4Figures to E3, who have made their Conker and Banjo statues

Could all be coincidences sure, but you have to admit it's interesting

Though in regards to that last one, let's be realistic: It's most likely going to be an announcement of a Battletoads Statue because of the new game

Well actually there is practically no chance the person who did this faces any sort of repercussions. Nintendo will do exactly what they do for all the people who make fake leaks and renders, nothing. Also there's no real grounds to make a lawsuit so really at most the person would get a C&D but so far the ads actually are to Nintendo's advantage so likely won't do even that. The only thing that would happen is the person who faked it wasted a lot of money and they are a certified ****.
This is not just a fake leak. It is IMPERSONATING NINTENDO and ADVERTISING on their behalf. Not only that, but it’s implicating a business partnership with 4 SEPARATE COMPANIES that, if this IS a fake, have NOTHING to do with Smash Bros DLC. Even if Nintendo didn’t WANT to pursue legal action (but it’s Nintendo, so they totally would), they would risk engendering SERIOUS animosity from those companies for letting someone do this without any ramifications.

I don’t say any of this to be rude or insulting, but we need to stop acting like there is literally zero precedent of companies taking individuals to court over arguably trivial issues. Companies do a LOT over MUCH smaller **** than this.

I don't want to be that guy, especially since I want the Google theory to actually be real, but you do realize that this line of logic was thrown around a lot by those who believed in the Grinch leak, right? Terms like Occum's Razor were used to justify the Grinch leak's legitimacy, and look how that turned out.

You say it's impossible to fake, but this is the Smash community we are talking about here. More than any other community, there are people who will go out of there way to create fakes through these elaborate bread crumb trails that we investigate into. Legal troubles be dammed, never underestimate the lengths people will go to fool others.

With all due respect, this is a very flawed way of looking at the situation.

No, I won't and the simple reason is I have looked up all these things and various related scenarios. And the results of the research have lead me to say that sadly this guy, if faking this, is extremely likely to face 0 consequences. I would love Nintendo to crack down on something like this but there's no precedent for it. Legally this guy is pretty safe.

I seriously doubt they will release Dark souls 4 because the series came to a conclusion with the 3rd game, at least that's how they put it. However, there were some rumors saying George RR Martín was collaborating with a video-game firm (probably Fromsoft) to make a RPG video-game based on his work. Sounds crazy but given how dark souls and GOT share "similar" genre medieval fantasy, maybe insiders confused this new game with Darksouls 4
