Stanley the Bugman is Mario's cousin?
#1
In a recent trivia posted for the game "Donkey Kong 3", it states that Stanley the Bugman is the cousin of Mario.

The source provided comes from the Donkey Kong wiki, however that piece of information on the page links to a site which is HTTP 404.

Searching online, the only links I could find were fan fiction threads on Nintendo fansites.

If there is an official source which states this, can someone please post it here.

I've updated the trivia to say that he's "rumored" to be Mario cousin. I think that's the best wording.

On our friend's settee, she told me that she really liked me
And I said, "Cool... the feeling's mutual"
We played old 45's, and said it's like the soundtrack to our lives
And she said, "True, it's not unusual" - then privately we danced
We couldn't seem to keep our balance... A drunken haze had come upon us

We sank down to the floor, and we sang a song that I can't sing anymore
And then we kissed, and fell unconscious...
I woke up the next day, all alone but for a headache
I stumbled out to find the bathroom...
But all I found was her, wrapped around another lover
No longer then is he our mutual friend

Whether this is a rumor doesn't exactly mean that it's a fact. I recently submitted a trivia about a rumor which was officially stated by Capcom as supposedly being true in reagards to Mega Man 9, however Petie rejected it.

Plus those links, apart from IGN which may hold some truth, are all fansites which do not present any official material as research that confirms this. It all appears to be fan speculation.

Is there anything like an official interview or instruction booklet which does state this or even tells of some personal relation between Stanley and Mario being part of the same family?

There's a difference between a widely regarded rumor, like this, and the lack of a piece of trivia, like your submission. "There is an easter egg in the game" is not the same as "It is widely considered that" - the Mega Man 9 submission would be accepted if it told us what that Easter Egg is, but obviously that is unknown at this time. Once it is known, it can be submitted, and it will be accepted.

We should then probably further state in the trivia how the two are supposably related.
