** Making the bat the one true threat of the game is that you can ''never kill it'', unlike the dragons. The best you can do is place it in a castle without any other items inside and make certain it loops upward (because if it goes in any other direction it will get out) or that you can lock the castle with the bat still inside.

* WordOfGod: [[http://www.gooddealgames.com/interviews/int_Warren_Robinett.html Warren Robinett]] has said he named the dragons (Yorgle, Rhindle, and ''Grindle'') and the Bat (Knubberrub), but only the names of the dragons made it into the manual, and Grindle got a slight name change in the process. ([[FlipFlopOfGod Or maybe not]], since [[http://www.stanford.edu/dept/HPS/TimLenoir/MilitaryEntertainment/Atari/Warren%20Robinett%20Interview.html in other interviews]] he says he named the green dragon Grundle from the start)

* ParanoiaFuel: The dragons. Especially in the harder modes where the [[GoddamnedBats bat]] will sometimes [[OhCrap steal your item and]] ''[[OhCrap give you a live dragon in return]].''

* UnfortunateCharacterDesign: More than one player has noted that the dragons look more like ducks. Parodied in WebAnimation/HomestarRunner, as whenever the dragons appear as a minor character, they call it a duck.
