''Nightshade Part 1: The Claws of Sutekh'', more commonly known simply as ''Nightshade'', is a game for the [[NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]] released in 1991 -- the very end of that system's life. For plenty of reasons, the game was not successful and faded into obscurity. Yet, in recent years -- thanks to internet and particularly WebVideo/TheHappyVideoGameNerd and WebVideo/JonTron -- it has undergone something of a revival.

* BigRedButton: The first lever in the game is labeled "SelfDestructMechanism! Do not touch!" It actually turns off water to reveal the exit. If this is Sutekh's idea of security, you can guess the extent of his idiocy his later on.

** If you check out the crowbar at the beginning of the game, you will find a reference from ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'', a furry comic: [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v205/luisedgarf/NightshadeU-0_zps37f1f074.png A very odd romantic message written by Toki (A character from the comic who doesn't appear in the game) addressed to the heroine Erma (who she neither appears in the game either) appears.]] This is justified as the game was scripted by the Australian writer Paul Kidd, who worked with Albedo's creator, Steven A. Gallacci in some of his stories.[[note]]This also overlaps with GettingCrapPastTheRadar, being ''Albedo'' a very obscure comic, there's no way the Nintendo's censors could catch the reference, as Toki is female, and the crowbar thing is a reference towards the ''[[ADateWithRosiePalms Erma with a crowbar]]'' meme in the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom, not to mention the fact there is a ''[[LesYay lesbian joke]]'' in a NES game.[[/note]]

* DefeatByModesty: A weird kind. Mummies can't actually be beaten in fights. You have to hit them with a combo that makes them spin around so their bandages fall off. This leaves them so embarrassed they run away.

* TheChosenZero: Nightshade's real identity is Mark Gray, an encyclopedia researcher. No parents dying or lab accident or being made a champion. Nightshade is just some guy who gets bored and decided to fight crime.

Nightshade is just some guy who gets bored and decided to fight crime. Doesn't help that he was preceded by Vortex, an actually well-equipped and formidable superhero who lost to the same villains.
