 Pirate games
 
Argument: Generic

Why there are bootleg games in no-intro database? Unlicensed games are ok, but pirated games?

X-Men vs. Street Fighter (World) (Unl) (Pirate) for example.

Should they be removed?

Hmm. I hear you. :3 It's a good point. One we should examine.

What about Multicarts? They are just duplications of games already available alone.
C. V. Reynolds @ 2017-08-08 02:28:59

Do you mean official multicarts? Because all officially licensed cartridges must be recorded in No-Intro's database regardless of their content. Removing them would be like removing a Rev 1 because Rev 2 exists, etcetera. No good.

I mean unlicensed multicarts. Nes has a lot of them, for example:

Maxi-15 Pack (Australia) (Unl)
Quattro Arcade (USA) (Unl)
Caltron - 6 in 1 (USA) (Unl)
Super Cartridge Ver 2 - 10 in 1 (Asia) (Unl)
Pegasus 5 in 1 (Unknown) (Unl)
Rumble Station - 15 in 1 (USA) (Unl)

And a lot more in the DB. They are just copies of repeated games.
