* 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.
