* TheUnfought: Swampy is never fought directly. He does manage to be a GetBackHereBoss in spite of it, though, as one of the space levels involves pursuing him on a rocket as he drops obstacles and baby frogs.

* NintendoHard: Oy. For starters, time limits are present on every level, so you can't afford to dawdle lest you die. For another thing, [[EverythingTryingToKillYou unless it's another frog, a switch, or a static platform]], [[OneHitPointWonder a single touch from anything will kill you]]. Third, [[CheckpointStarvation there are no checkpoints within levels whatsoever]], you either get all the frogs in one go, or you get a game over. And some of the levels are not only difficult, they're difficult and have gimmicks which will make them an utter nightmare. Uncanny Crusher, anyone?

** It's never mentioned in-game, but the [[AllThereInTheManual manual]] for Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge (the ''third'' game) reveals that Frogger suffers from a [[NoodleIncident never-described]] childhood trauma involving water. The suggestion is that jumping into water gives him a panic attack, causing him to flail and drown. Still doesn't explain why every other playable character (including frogs) [[PlotHole has exactly the same problem]].

The player starts with three frogs (lives). The player guides a frog which starts at the bottom of the screen. The lower half of the screen contains a five-lane road with motor vehicles, which in various versions include cars, trucks, buses, taxis, bicyclists, motorcycles or some combination thereof, speeding along it horizontally. The upper half of the screen consists of a river with logs, alligators, and turtles, all moving horizontally across the screen. The very top of the screen contains five "frog homes" which are the goals for each frog. Every level is timed; the player must act quickly to finish each level before the time expires.

By jumping on swiftly moving logs and the backs of turtles, the player can guide his or her frog safely to one of the empty lilypads. For some odd reason, the frog cannot swim. The player must avoid alligators, snakes and otters in the river, but may catch bugs or escort a lady frog for bonuses. When all five frogs are directed home, the game progresses to the next, harder level.

Konami and Sega had a legal battle over who owned ''Frogger''. Despite this, the original ''Frogger'' was the final licensed game ever produced and released for the Sega Genesis in 1998 (as well as the SNES) and Konami would bring installments of ''VideoGame/{{Contra}}'' and ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' to Sega consoles, and several years later Konami itself developed and published a ''Frogger'' game for the Nintendo3DS, simply titled ''Frogger [[SuperTitle64Advance 3D]]'' (not to be confused with the FanNickname of the first Frogger game with polygonal graphics).

''Frogger'' was also featured in a subplot of an episode of ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}''.

* MeaninglessLives: You only have three lives so Game Overs can and do happen, but all that happens is you get spit back to the main menu, where you can restart the level you just died on. Might as well have just had infinite lives, since navigating through the menus to pick up where you left off is annoying, especially if it happens repeatedly. And it often does on the harder levels.
