* {{Expy}}: Bayou Billy is based on ''Film/CrocodileDundee''. In the Japanese cover art, he looks almost exactly like Paul Hogan, which is probably why a different artwork was used for the American release.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Despite coming out during an era when Nintendo of America had strict censorship rules, the game managed to get away with a character screaming "OH GOD!!!" during a cutscene (references to anything that could be seen as religious or blasphemous were generally a no-no in the pre-ESRB days, which is what lead to the famous "Oh my car!" line in the SNES version of ''VideoGame/FinalFight''). Also, Annabelle's outfit in the American versions allows for her to show off some noticeable cleavage in cutscenes (though it should be noted that Nintendo of America didn't censor Samus Aran's bikini in ''{{Metroid}}'' either). Godfather Gordon is also occasionally [[GoodSmokingEvilSmoking seen smoking]].

''The Adventures of Bayou Billy'' (known as ''Mad City'' in Japan) is a side-scrolling BeatEmUp released by Creator/{{Konami}} in 1988/1989 for the NintendoEntertainmentSystem. In it, an adventurer named Billy West (no, not [[Creator/BillyWest the famous voice actor]]) sets out to rescue his girlfriend Annabelle from the clutches of the evil gangster Godfather Gordon. There are nine stages in all, with driving and [[LightGunGame on-rails shooting]] sections thrown in for variety.

This game is notorious for being ridiculously hard. Although it should be noted that while it may qualify as NintendoHard, it wasn't a whole lot worse than many of the other games made for the {{NES}}. The [[RedOniBlueOni Final Boss]] however, may well be one of the hardest of the era. [[spoiler:Unless you have a whip from the previous level.]]

* ComicBookAdaptation: Most notable for being ArchieComics' first comic book based on a video game, predating their ''Sonic'' comics. It only lasted six issues though.
