* 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.)

* BigBad: While the main antagonist in the first game is the three-faced computer MORGUL, every subsequent game has the Machine take over the role of the central antagonist.

* 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]].

The series borrows elements of ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros.'', ''Videogame/{{Contra}}'', ''Videogame/{{Metroid}}'' and ''Psycho-Nics Oscar''. The games were developed by the now defunct company Rainbow Arts. The levels themselves were massive with lots of secrets to find, like hidden power-up blocks and extra lives. Also, bosses at times didn't necessarily appear at the end of levels. They would show up in the middle of levels, and even the beginning at times. It also has an awesome soundtrack.
