    So I bought Fire Emblem and Fire Emblem : The Sacred Stones for really cheap what they are worth now. I got them for 60€ each and they are really good condition. I have checked cartigde insides and confirmed them as legit, but good condition and cheap price is really suspicious, how can you tell if boxes and manuals are real or fake? Here are some pictures.

    I can't see any indications that either's fake from those images. Although I've never seen another Australian copy of Fire Emblem to compare to that one.
    Looks like you got a legit good deal!

    I doubt anybody would have faked a box or manual for 60 Euros. Label maybe (those do look somewhat saturated but could just as easily have been the camera and dodgy white balance. If the cart is fine and if the labels have the little punched numbers somewhere in them then OK), but not boxes and especially not manuals*.

    * https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Support/...ls/Game-Boy-Advance-games-manuals-928652.html has nice PDFs you could probably print but that is 90 odd pages, couple of which are colour and then binding and slicing it. Even if you are a printer that is a lot of effort. Not much better for cutting, bending and gluing cardboard.

    Ebay prices for sold items are not that much higher also complete and good condition (not like this is mint unopened Ninja Cop/Ninja 50). Sounds more like someone had something in a country that does not have the biggest market and could not be bothered to deal with selling fees, time wasters and international postage.
