Who Or What Is Scripulous Fingore?

In April 2021, Twitter user @CutVideoGame shared two images of a strange gray-blue ghost character with a big pointing figure flying around in a level of New Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo DS. The post claims that the character is named Scripulous Fingore and was found fully coded in the files for the game. To make matters stranger, the user claims that when Miyamoto was asked about it, he became "unusually upset."

Unfortunately, this post is a hoax. The account is a parody of legitimate video game fact gimmick accounts that shares blatantly false video game discoveries. Scripulous Fingore is nothing more than a well-photoshopped invention of the account's imagination. The character actually bears a large resemblance to Graggle Simpson, a similarly fake character purportedly seen in The Simpsons.
