* 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 release of the game 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).
* GiantMook: Blackie Blue

* {{Expy}}: Bayou Billy is based on CrocodileDundee. In some of the Japanese ads for the game, Billy looks almost exactly like Paul Hogan.

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.

Added DiffLines:

* HitboxDissonance: To a ludicrous degree in the driving stages. The short version is that if if you're rounding a curve, trying to shoot at an enemy car is not going to get you anywhere.

* WhipItGood: A whip can be obtained from the bad guys in earlier stages and there is one enemy named A.L. Hurt who uses one as his primary weapon.

* WhipItGood: A whip can be obtained from the bad guys in earlier stages and there is one enemy named A.L. Hurt who uses one as his primary weapon. It's also bar none the best weapon in the game if you can get your hands on it, as it has the most range out of anything you can get besides a gun, also ignores armor, which not even bullets do, and it carries through stages as long as you don't die.

* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: Inverted. The [[http://www.retrogamingaus.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Adventures-of-Bayou-Billy-Mad-City-JP.jpg Famicom version's cover art]] has a similar composition to its later NES counterpart shown above, yet it has a more serious and darker mood. Billy's expression is pretty stern(in contrast to the goofy grin he has on the western art), Godfather Gordon is pointing his knife at Annabelle ([[StandardFemaleGrabArea instead of merely holding her arm]]) and the setting is during sunset instead of daytime.
