** The Spike factory: simple and boring; no moving parts, just a constant stream of small piles of tacks. But it can be upgraded to pop lead bloons, there's a special option for ceramic bloons, and it kills [=MOABs=] more quickly than a Super Monkey.

** {{Subverted|Trope}} on Extreme difficulty tracks on [=BTD5=]. The Easy mode is ''merely'' a Point Five Oh Sniper Monkey, the Medium being a Ray of Doom Monkey, and the Hard mode is a Sun God Monkey. You know it's Extreme when the easy mode pic is a BadAss (although not as badass as the other two).

Added DiffLines:

* UnwinnableByDesign / [[UnwinnableByMistake Mistake]]: Certain Daily Challenges from 5 like ''Anti-Camo Dust'', ''Highly Opinionated'', and ''Ten Hits'' were impossible for many players and so they had to be fixed later, either after 12 hours since the challenge released or even three months after it initially expired.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The Cool Math Games version of the first game changes a pre-round message about the [[{{Badass}} Super Monkey]] from "he really [[{{Badass}} kicks ass!]]" to "he is really [[{{Badbutt}} poptastic!]]".

This game was a spinoff of the lesser known ''VideoGame/{{Bloons}}'' (a series of aim-and-power-meter puzzle games with many player designed maps), but became so much more popular that this series got its own spinoff, ''VideoGame/BloonsSuperMonkey'' (a top-down aerial shooter starring the titular monkey from the [=BTD=] series).

** For an actual example, Tunnels is infamously easy despite its "Expert" rating, because MOAB-class bloons fly over the tunnels instead of through them, so they are not protected by the tunnels unlike regular bloons.

** On the other end of the spectrum, Crypt Keeper and Downstream are rated "Advanced", yet their designs reek of an Expert map.
