I have been wondering this for a while and don't want to test it myself, does anyone have any stories or evidence? And if it is only water resistant what is the extent?

Not waterproof no, though I believe they are mouthproof.

No I mean they won't break if you drop a little water on them but keep doing it And rust will happen

As far as fully submerged I would never Try that

@mandzilla: I think they've made them taste intentionally bad to stop children from eating them.

I knew the cartridge tasted bad already, (it was the first thing I did when I got my first game, wanted to know how bad it was) I just didn't consider the fact that the taste would rub off to my lips, so I licked my lips after I had held the cartridge and... well... you know the rest :D

I doubt they're waterproof, meaning that water will likely seep into the cartridge if it gets dunked, but modern electronics are very resilient, so it will probably be fine once it dries out. The important thing is not to run power through the cartridge while it's still wet because it could create a short circuit that has the potential to damage the cartridge and even the console itself.

They definitely are not. The open pins make them non waterproof. But the top label is water resistant. (To an extent)
