''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'', ''Video/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, nevermind 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.

* ArtEvolution: The cover of the NES version depicts the three toads, was obviously drawn while the game was still in development, before the designs of the Toads were individualized in the finalized game. As a result, every toad on the cover looks like Zitz.

* CoversAlwaysLie: All three Toads on the cover look like Zitz. However, in both the intro and the sprites Rash and Pimple look like themselves. This was fixed in future games.
