** As stated in the main article, the creators had big dreams of making Cheetamen into a big franchise, now, had they put all that wishful thinking into developing one functional game, instead of 52 broken ones, they might have maybe, possibly gotten somewhere. Mayhaps.

* StillbornFranchise: Honestly, the guys at Active should have known not to pin their dreams on ''Action 52'''s success. They had to have ''played'' the game at some point, right?

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: ''Storm Over The Desert'' is very transparently based on [[UsefulNotes/TheGulfWar Operation Desert Storm]], which concluded just before the game's release.

** The [[BandLand music themed]], psychedelic ''Manchester'' is likely a reference to the "Madchester" music scene that declined in the early 90's.

* CreatorKiller: This game's infamous execution cemented Active Enterprises as SnarkBait right away, and they only got partway through ''Cheetahmen II'' before they effectively vanished.

Added DiffLines:

* CashCowFranchise: Attempted, but failed miserably. Active was clearly expecting ''Cheetahmen'' to become the next ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', or at the very least the next ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}''. While it could perhaps have enjoyed some success, as many agree that the basic concept was kind of cool if not especially original, having the only way of obtaining it be as part of a $200 cartridge pretty much killed that idea from the word go.
* ManualMisprint: Taken UpToEleven, as several of the manual descriptions bear absolutely no resemblance to the actual game. Several examples are rather {{Egregious}}:
** The manual describes ''Crazy Shuffle'' as a matching game, but it's actually a game where you shoot stuff in a hedge maze.
** ''Bits n Pieces'' is described as a puzzle game but is actually a game where you jump on stock movie monsters.
** In the manual, ''Jigsaw'' is described as being ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. However, it's actually a carpentry-themed platformer.

** Active Enterprises had plans to create a Cheetahmen animated TV series and toy line.
