* UnexpectedShmupLevel: Worlds 3-1 and 3-3 in ''Turrican'', and the Commodore 64 version of ''Turrican II'''s final stage. In all three levels, you needed to find a hidden item to start the level, but this was changed in later ports. However, later versions of ''Turrican II'' changed it to a platform jumping stage.

The Amiga version of ''Turrican 2'' also had stage where you get into a ship and experience a ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}''-like shoot'em up segment.

* MultipleChoicePast: The manual for [[http://www.lemonamiga.com/games/docs.php?id=1693 the Amiga version]] of ''Turrican'' describes the main villain, MORGUL, as an ancient creature that spreads nightmares, and it makes it sound like the game is in a fantasy setting. However, [[http://www.retrogameguide.com/games/Genesis-Turrican/ the Genesis version's manual]] talks about space colonies and mutants and describes MORGUL as a computer. (This one is more in keeping with the actual game.)

* LaserCutter: The intro to the first game shows a laser or heat ray cutting a rectangle from the black background. The piece falls out, and the developer's logo (Rainbow Arts) becomes visible. This is a reference to a special ability the in-game character has in most of the games. See it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fvha_2hAzq0 here]].

It's TheFuture, and mankind has spread into space. Their sole protection from the scum of the universe is the [[TheFederation United Planets Freedom Forces]] and its armored champion, Turrican. The person wearing the mantle of Turrican varies, as do the villains, though a frequent foe is the evil cyborg/{{Galactus}} impersonator known as [[SpellMyNameWithAThe The Machine]].
