In addition to the games, there was also an [[WesternAnimation/DoubleDragon animated series]] and a [[Film/DoubleDragon live-action movie]], as well as a comic where their dad was StanLee. Yes, that one.

Neon is not much of a remake. Only the first stage vaguely resembles Mission 1 from the NES version.

* AdaptationDyeJob: Billy (Player 1) had blond hair in the original arcade trilogy, while Jimmy (Player 2) had brown hair. When the games were adapted for the NES, the hair colors were switched, giving Billy brown hair (although often depicted as red hair) and Jimmy blond hair. The later console installments for the SNES, PCE and GBA stick to the NES style. ** The opening sequence of the first NES game (in which the Black Warriors kidnap Marian) depicts Jimmy Lee with [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue hair]] instead of his usual blond, although this could be attributed due to the number of different characters (Marian, Jimmy, Chin, Williams and Rowper) appearing in the scene, using up the limited color display of the NES (in the actual game, enemies always fight alone or in pairs and always as clones of the same character), causing Jimmy and Chin to use an unusual palette in the opening. ** The MasterSystem version also depicted Jimmy with blue hair. ** In the NES sequels, Jimmy's in-game sprite depicts him with red hair like Billy's, despite having blond hair in the cut-scenes and character select portrait. ** The ending photograph of the second arcade game the Lee twins are depicted with the switched hair colors they had in the NES games.

* AdaptationDyeJob: The series was never consistent as to which Lee brothers had which hair color. In the first arcade game, Player 1 (or Hammer, as he was originally named) wore the blue outfit and had the blond hair, while Player 2(or Spike) had the red outfit and brown hair. This was changed in the NES version, where Billy (Player 1) wore the blue outfit and had reddish brown hair, while Jimmy wore the red outfit and had blond hair in (aside from a brief scene where it's blue). Their respective sequels followed suit, although the original arcade trilogy, version of ''Double Dragon II'' deviated from this pattern a bit by having the Lee brothers wearing black and white during gameplay while Jimmy (Player 2) had brown hair. When the games were adapted for the NES, the depicting them with their "switched" hair colors were switched, giving Billy brown hair (although often depicted as red hair) and Jimmy blond hair. The later console installments for the SNES, PCE and GBA stick to from the NES style. ** The opening sequence of the first NES game (in which the Black Warriors kidnap Marian) depicts Jimmy Lee with [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue hair]] instead of his usual blond, although this could be attributed due to the number of different characters (Marian, Jimmy, Chin, Williams and Rowper) appearing in the scene, using up the limited color display of the NES (in the actual game, enemies always fight alone or in pairs and always as clones of the same character), causing Jimmy and Chin to use an unusual palette in the opening. ** The MasterSystem version also depicted Jimmy with blue hair. ** In during the NES sequels, Jimmy's in-game sprite depicts him with red hair like Billy's, despite having blond hair ending photograph.

* NamedByTheAdaptation: The characters in the arcade versions of the first two games didn't have names when the games were originally released, except for the two protagonists (who were initially named Hammer and Spike in Taito's promotional materials outside Japan, rather the names Billy and Jimmy that were later given). The NES version of the original game in particular was the first version to established the names of the Lee Brothers, Marian and the members of the Black Warriors gang, which subsequent versions used.

* LadyInRed: While Marian is established to be Billy's girlfriend in most of the series, Jimmy fancies her as well, resulting a rivalry between the two siblings.

* MartialArtsHeadband: Roper in the SNES version. Billy and Jimmy sported some as well in the American cover arts of the earlier games (including the cabinet art for the arcade game), but they never wore any in the actual games.

''Double Dragon'' was followed by two arcade sequels and numerous home versions for various platforms. The three NES versions (along with the first two Game Boy games and the SNES-exclusive installment) were actually developed by Technos themselves, while most of the other versions were licensed out and developed by other companies. The series died out after Technos went out of business in 1996 (long after the beat-'em-up boom ended), despite attempts to adapt it into a FightingGame format. The series was revived when Million Corp., a company founded by former Technos staff members, bought the IP. While the series is nowhere near as prevalent as it was back in the day, it still gets an occasional new game once in a while.
