* {{Acrofatic}}: George is by far the largest of the main trio but is actually able to move pretty quickly around a basketball court and even manages to jump high enough to do a slam dunk. (Though ends up going through the hoop himself in the process.)

* StillbornFranchise: Never got past the pilot, no plans for additional animated adaptations despite the cult status of the original game. A good example of how attempts to leverage popularity in one genre to another can go awry.

* HowDoIShotWeb: The Battletoads have to find out how to use In the course of their first fight Rash activates a Smash Hits.Hit attack by accident. As soon as the professor tells them to "think with your hands" to do so in the future, [[InstantExpert they pretty much master it right away]].

For many years it was nearly forgotten (though it was released on VHS in 1994), buried in the wasteland alongside hundreds of other failed TV pilots, until rediscovered by the Internet. See it in its 30 minutes of glory [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=df5UEKxHQ3U here]]. An {{MST}}-style version by WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}}'s Diabetus is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKkL-e5FfEA here]]. TheAnnotatedSeries has also covered it.

The pilot bombed spectacularly. The aborted series is a textbook example of a StillbornFranchise: a niche work being rammed into another medium, adaptation changes alienating the existing fans, critical panning, and a failure to capture a mainstream audience. No further episodes were broadcast, and it likely destroyed any chance of a good ''Battletoads'' series ever being made.
