Nintendo of Japan has Nintendo of America do all the dirty work. Neither want rando scrubs rummaging around their IP, releasing titles. Their level of aggro would have little to do with intelligence (that's a ignorant stereotype created by society. Most serial killers have above average intelligence), and more to do with how seriously they take their content and business.
The main issue is not whether or not you profit from said fan game, but what profits you make afterward using he exposure from their IP.
It's not rocket science if you just step back a tiny bit.

Come on, Kayzee. Very few people ever play these games, certainly not enough to do any brand, any favors.
And many games have been taken down from sites and steam, because again... It's illegal, and they DO. NOT. WORK. FOR. THAT. COMPANY.
Any little word of mouth can do a brand a favor sometimes ya know. Besides... Out of all the points I brought up, why are you disagreeing with the one used to agree with you? Don't you also think making fangames directly using a brand is a waste?
Anyway, honestly it's not the existence of copyright I have a problem with as much the ridiculous length of time it has been pushed to thanks mostly to Disney lobbyists. Didn't the original law only give protection for 20-30 years? I could live with that really. Sure 10-15 would be better in today's world where technology evolves so fast, but still. But at this point it isn't about protecting an artist for a limited time to encourage the production of new work, it's about huge cooperation hoarding everything they can forever, even if that's literally all they are doing. It's ridiculous. And that's not even getting into all the abuse of the system...
I'm an Anarchist. Mortal-made 'laws' are irrelevant.
But that's fine, go ahead and continue wearing those red-tinted glasses.
I'm not the bad person here for supporting the individual over the government or over corporations, just the opposite. I'm not the evil one for choosing love over money. I could go on, but I won't.
I can't lock this, but I sure as beans can ignore it.
