* DifficultyByRegion: The Famicom version is much easier compared to its NES counterpart. The Genesis version, which was ported by a Japanese team, used the Famicom version as its base.

Added DiffLines:

* GameplayRoulette: Pretty much every level is different. Sometimes it's a beat-'em-up, sometimes it's a platformer, sometimes it's an obstacle course where you're on a vehicle, sometimes it's a race against an enemy.

** The NES game features ''SpaceInvaders'' aliens as enemies. The little bastards harm you by [[NoFourthWall flying up to the HUD and stealing pieces of your life meter]].

->''You played as Rash, Zitz, or Pimple, because we really were that dumb as kids, and their quest was to defeat the Dark Queen, because it's really easy to manipulate dumb kids. ''Battletoads'' wasn't a game, it was a secret project to electronically destroy the human soul. The game was harder than a diamond strap-on and did similar things to you when you played with it.''

While the game did have several sequels (including a IntercontinuityCrossover with ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon'' and an arcade game that played as a straight BeatEmUp), most of these were not nearly as popular, and for the most part [[FirstInstallmentWins only the original is remembered at all]]. Despite the rapid downturn of popularity -- but not necessarily quality -- of later entries, quite a few people still want to see the franchise revived[[note]]While it doesn't necessarily guarantee that a sequel or reboot is forthcoming, current rights holder Microsoft did re-register the ''Battletoads'' trademark in November 2014.[[/note]]. If you prefer a bit more tongue-in-cheek humor with your [[MerchandiseDriven merchandise-driven]] game characters, see ''VideoGame/EarthwormJim''.

* BossOnlyLevel: The final stage of the original game is merely the Dark Queen's arena. Oddly, you won't discover this unless you get a Game Over fighting the Dark Queen, as there's no transitional cut-scenes between The Revolution & The Armageddon.

* DifficultySpike: As soon as you jump on the riders in level 3. Most people won't get past this thing (you must time your jumps exactly as the speed increases, to the point you've got fractions of a second to time it right.) And when you finally press on and beat it, you get another difficulty spike. And another. ''[[SerialEscalation And another.]]''

Most people won't get past this thing (you must time your jumps exactly as the speed increases, to the point you've got fractions of a second to time it right.) The difficulty is squared on two-player, as if one person crashes you both start over. And when you finally press on and beat it, you get another difficulty spike. And another.

* {{Badass}}: ''So'' badass.
** One could also make a case for the player who ''beats'' Battletoads.



* LeatherMan: Some of those outfits almost have to be more than just a little HellBentForLeather {{Badass}}. In particular, {{The Dragon}}s General Slaughter, General Vermin and Big Blag, especially in the arcade game.

*** And then there's [[{{Badass}} another]] who [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evLw5uuZe4I beat the entire game in one life on a speed run.]] No cheats, no assists, on a classic NES.
