* BackFromTheDead: Robo-Manus. He's been blown apart and/or decapitated several times throughout the series' run, but he always comes back



* CoDragons: Robo-Manus and Big Blag. The intro to the first game even has the Dark Queen telling you to beat them before getting to her. Due to warps, however, you can actually beat the game without ever beating Big Blag.

* {{Cyborg}}: Robo-Manus. This is most evident in the arcade game where he bleeds after his hands and brain are damaged despite being part machine.

* FatBastard & GiantMook: The aptly-named Big Blagg. A mammoth rat with steroid-infused arms and a greasy pompadour. Like the worst character in a fighting game, he uses his girth to trap you in the screen's corners.

* IShallReturn: Robo-Manus declares "I'll be back!" after being defeated and blown apart in the arcade game.



* SwissArmyWeapon: Robo-Manus, who is generally armed to the teeth with a variety of ranged weapons, including [[EyeBeams eye lasers]], forearm-mounted blaster cannons, missile launchers, flamethrowers, and bombs, most of which are integrated into his cyborg body.


Added DiffLines:

* WalkingArmory: Robo-Manus, whose weapons generally consist of [[EyeBeams optic blasts]], [[ArmCannon arm-mounted blasters]], [[MacrossMissileMassacre missiles]], [[FireBreathingWeapon flamethrowers]] and [[StuffBlowingUp bombs]] among other things, all of which are parts of his cybernetic body.

* KillerRabbit: By the time they appear the player will have learnt [[EverythingTryingToKillYou to assume everything can]] OneHitKill, but Terra Tubes takes the cake with seemingly-innocent ''rubber ducks'' that do OneHitKill the player

** General Slaughter suffers this to a degree as well. After his appearance as the boss of Stage 10 of the original game, he was only seen in later games as either a [[WarmupBoss]] or a [[MiniBoss]].

''Battletoads'' routinely shows up in {{Top Ten List}}s of the hardest {{NES}} games, and is one of few titles where 2-player mode actually makes the game harder. Contrary to reputation, it's not the most difficult game ever produced at that time (''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'', ''VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins'', ''VideoGame/SilverSurfer'', and ''VideoGame/TheAdventuresOfBayouBilly'' were all keeping up); however, the amount of rote memorization demanded by ''Battletoads'' is extremely taxing on adult gamers, never mind its target audience. As the NES generation grew older, ''Battletoads'' naturally became a font of [[MemeticMutation memes]], to the point where Kayin went on record claiming that his homebrew platformer, ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy'', was a romhack of ''Battletoads'' and daring people to complete the game if they wanted to prove him a liar. The original is best remembered for its lascivious [[GameOverMan game over screen]], providing incentive (or rather, [[SexyPackaging two of them]]) for frustrated gamers to keep bashing away in hopes of meeting the Queen in person.

* DifficultyByRegion: The Famicom version is much easier compared to its NES counterpart. The Genesis version, which was ported by a Japanese team, used the Famicom version as its base.

Added DiffLines:

* GameplayRoulette: Pretty much every level is different. Sometimes it's a beat-'em-up, sometimes it's a platformer, sometimes it's an obstacle course where you're on a vehicle, sometimes it's a race against an enemy.
