*** FridgeBrilliance might be that they were not in the show ''yet'', but, as shown below, it was CutShort.

Added DiffLines:

* NonIndicativeFirstEpisode: Everything about the first episode, right down to the opening, implies a completely different overall premise to the actual series.
** The Oldest Dragon's voiceover states 'Billy Lee, You are Dragon Master now' in the opening, when the ACTUAL series opening says, 'Jimmy and Billy Lee, You are Dragon Masters now'.
** Shadow Master's part in the intro is filled by Shadow Boss.
** The two sidekicks of Shadow Boss... are used as an example in the second episode, and never seen again.

* AdaptationDyeJob: The Lee brothers are given the different hair colors and hair styles they had in ''Super Double Dragon'' (which in turn were based on the designs they had in the NES versions of the games), but Billy's hair is colored black like on the game's American boxart instead of the reddish brown hair he has in-game and Japanese promo art, which ends up making him look a poor man's [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro]] with the ensemble he's given. A coloring mistake in the episode "The Price of Oblivion" ended up inadvertently giving the Lee brothers their arcade colors for one scene, with the dark-haired brother (Billy in this case) being given a red outfit, while the blond-haired brother (Jimmy) being given the blue outfit.

** The Season 1 [=PSAs=] were pretty generic in nature, being nothing more than scenes from the actual show that were clearly redubbed at the last minute to shoehorn a lesson in order to meet the education content quota required for children programming at the time. There were only six [=PSAs] made for the first season, so the show reuses them all for the latter half of the season.

* AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle - Every episode, except for the pilot, ended with a public service announcement featuring the heroes teaching some kind of moral to kids, as was standard with most animated shows at the time. The Season 1 [=PSAs=] were pretty generic in nature, being nothing more than redubbed scenes from the actual show and recycled for half the season. The Season 2 [=PSAs=] on the other hand were unique to each episode and had morals that were actually related to the episode's plot. One particularly ironic example is in "Virtual Reality Bytes", which centers around a kid's video game addiction. The moral was essentially "don't play the video games all the damn time"--which, while certainly a good moral, is kind of odd coming from an adaptation of a video game.

The first episode makes a fair adaptation of the first game (at least the NES version, which had Jimmy [[AdaptationalVillainy as the final boss]] and [[DemotedToDragon Willy as his henchman]]), but the series deviates from Episode 2 and onward. However, a tie-in video game titled ''VideoGame/DoubleDragonVTheShadowFalls'' was produced by the franchise's U.S. license holder at the time Tradewest, released in late 1994 on the [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super NES]], [[SegaGenesis Genesis]] and [[AtariJaguar Jaguar]].

* InNameOnly: The Pilot makes a fair adaptation of the first NES game and even features bad guys from the game (namely Abobo and Machine Gun Willy), but the rest of the series deviates from the games completely, with the Shadow Master being loosely modeled after the unnamed fighter from the second NES game.
