* NumericalHard: The difficulty levels just increase the speed of the bloons, the price of the towers, and the number of lives you have. In imppoppable difficulty, the M.O.A.B-Class Bloons are stronger and there are 5 instead of 1 Z.O.M.G(s)

** For [=BTD5=] Steam, there's ''Revenge of the Bloons'', which has changes such as glue gunners hitting M.O.A.Bs, but the most notable change is that there are fewer rounds to complete on all difficulties, but the game is a LOT harder. In fact, it makes [[HarderThanHard Impoppable]] [[NintendoHard Mastery]] impossible to complete [[FunWithAcronyms NAPS]], and still quite '''brutal''' with anything short of Double Cash!
*** Junior Monkey also modded the Flash-based version of [=BTD5=] to add Mastery Mode and camo-removing Viral Frost from the mobile and Steam releases, glue that affects M.O.A.B.s, and ice wizards that freeze and pop normal bloons and can conjure Absolute Zero, only it can stall M.O.A.B-class bloons as well!
** ''Battles'' has ''Bloonz Reborn by Blaze It (not exactly 420 Blaze It, but probably inspired by this), which balances out all towers and upgrades so that anything is viable and the presence of a META is minimized.
** Also for ''Battles'', Randumb returns with ''4/4 Towers'', which adds 3rd- and 4th-tier upgrade combinations to all towers except the monkey sub, engineer, bloonchipper, heli pilot, and supermonkey. Example: the tier 3 dart monkey throws spike balls in volleys of 3 like in ''[=BTD3=]'' and ''4''. When upgraded to tier 4, this becomes volleys of ''3 giant SpikedBallsOfDoom'' '''AND''' the Fan Club ability causes dart monkeys to '''''rapid-fire said spike balls!!'''''

* FuumaShuriken: The Boomerang Throwers can be upgraded to use these, as of [=BTD3=]. In [=BTD5=] and the spinoff game ''VideoGame/BloonsMonkeyCity'', they can also upgrade to [[PrecisionGuidedBoomerang HOMING fuuma shuriken]], and then get two of them that ''permanently rotate around them, shredding anything that gets close.''

to:

*** "No Farming" means no method of cash gain other than bloon pops. YMMV, but the 3|x village (Monkey Town) is debatable in this respect.
*** [[NoDamageRun No Lives Lost]] can be a challenge on its own, but prohibiting spikes and pineapples ups the ante. Not selling towers goes further still by denies money and space refunds, meaning that careful placement and upgrading is required.
** Any variant of NAPSFRILLS, including [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs NAPS, NLL, and NAPS NLL]], can be used not only for normal maps, but special missions, [[PlayEveryDay daily challenges]], and random missions as well.
