* OhCrap: When the toads have this reaction, it's boss fight time! They [[WrongGenreSavvy don't do this]] when they see [[HardLevelsEasyBosses vehicles]] though.

* ThemeNaming: The main characters are named for ''skin disorders'', which is a reference to the old wives' tale that touching frogs and toads gave you skin problems. (It doesn't.)



* ThreateningShark: The Sharks in Terra Tubes swim really quickly, can combo you to death in a matter of seconds, can traverse through the spikes that will instantly kill you, can knock you INTO those spikes and take an absurd amount of hits to kill.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: in the original NES game, the Space Invader-esque creatures, if left alone, will steal pieces of your health bar and leave.

* CheckpointStarvation: Even with infinite lives, the [=NES=] version is not a cakewalk due to this, especially in later levels such as Intruder Excluder and Terra Tubes. Then there's Level 11 (the ball of static) which has no checkpoints until the boss. The easier versions of ''Battletoads'' don't have more checkpoints, but the relaxed difficulty takes away from this trope.

* RoyalBrat: ''Battletoads'' is rightly famous... but not for its deep canon or characterization. What little we see of the Dark Queen just suggests a spoiled brat who happens to command armies and possess magic.

''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, 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.

* CutSong: There's an unused song in the game's data, and can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhnnl-eRpio&feature=related here]]. Its use is unknown.[[note]]Common theories include it being a possible final boss theme thanks to its fan name "The Armageddon", and being the music meant for the level Terra Tubes, as the level shares the same music with Surf City, which is unusual as all the other levels have their own music.[[/note]]
