* EvenBetterSequel: The SNES title, Battletoads in Battlemaniacs, is a big improvement over the first game. Featuring more balanced difficulty, better controls, an amazing soundtrack, and, best of all, the ability to turn the "friendly fire" option off. Sadly, not as many people remember this entry.
** The arcade game, a.k.a ''Super Battletoads'', is often consider better than the games on the consoles due to easier (though more challenging enemies) difficulty, abandoning the gimmicky platforming or racing stages, and for having all three toads playable in the same game and not one of them be captured (other than ''Battletoads & Double Dragon''). Not to mention they look and play differently enough from each other. The only downside is that you don't fight the Dark Queen in this title and Robo-Manus is the final boss instead, similarly to the first Gameboy game.

* HilariousInHindsight: The {{Franchise/Pokemon}} series now has at least three amphibian pokemon, Poliwrath/Politoed, Seismitoad, and Toxicroak. A small-but-significant number of fans jokingly nickname them after the legendary Battletoads themselves.

** "No, it's Doom 3."
** When someone on [[ImageBoards 4Chan]] asks for the name of an anime, the common response is a combination of Boku No Pico, Bible Black, and VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}, leading to such titles as Boku no Bibletoads.
** Would [=GameStop=] happen to have a copy of Battletoads? (Some people add "for the Wii", owing to Machinima/ArbyNTheChief.) [=GameStop=] seems to have been replaced by [[Series/PawnStars Gold and Silver Pawn Shop]] in recent years.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Much of the show's background music consists of genericized versions of old surf rock tunes (e.g. one of the battle scenes has a song that is clearly trying to sound like Music/DickDale's version of "Hava Nagila" of all things).

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: One part of the episode has a surf-style version of "Havah Negilah" playing over a fight sequence.

** Level 11, Clinger Winger. It qualifies for two reasons: First, due to a bug, it is ''impossible'' to win when playing two players in the NTSC NES release (it was fixed in the PAL NES release as well as in the Genesis remake), meaning it is impossible to win the game unless you're playing solo (or wait for the other player to lose all their lives so you can continue on by yourself). The other reason is that it's essentially the aforementioned Turbo Tunnel (there is very little room for error), only made ''even harder'', with absolutely no check points to boot. Again, arguably even tougher in the Genesis version, since the shape of the controller's D-pad makes it much easier to hit a diagonal and completely botch a turn. Oh, and you have to fight a boss at the end. Fortunately, they don't make you go all the way back to the beginning if you die to the boss. If it helps any -- by pausing the game the moment you come to any turn, you can then make a near-perfect turn every time, making this level a breeze. All bets are off with a second player.

** [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Level 6, Karnath's Lair, otherwise known as the snake pit]]. Giant snakes come out of the tunnels in the level, and you need them to climb to the top of each portion of the stage to advance. It becomes [[HarderThanHard stupidly hard]], even with a {{guide|DangIt}}, because in the later segments you must drop from one snake to the next, and it must be timed perfectly or you will miss the next snake and land on SpikesOfDoom. Also, good luck on the fourth room. The Genesis version is arguably even worse, mostly due to malicious changes in the physics that make your foundation to stand on disappear faster, as well as a newly installed glass ceiling in the fourth section that forces you to take the long way to the exit. Thank God the second room has a megawarp, which will also allow you to skip...

* ThatOneBoss: Karnath, that giant snake from the Arcade version can [[OneHitKO kill you in one-hit]] if you're playing in Co-Op (two if you're going solo). You'd better hope that you're quick enough to dodge his nasty bite attack or else you'll be out several dollars worth of quarters.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: It may just be a kick and a snare, but when we say that, we are barely implying that it means it's bad...[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jhl9pJB-2Ak the pause music.]]

Added DiffLines:

** A rather popular trend on the internet, particularly [=YouTube=], was for [[LetsPlay let's players]] to have races in ''Battletoads'' with an infinite lives code through emulators. The Rare Replay version of the game outright has "infinite lives" as a cheat you can turn on and off from the settings menu. This may even veer into a form of AscendedMeme.

* GrowingTheBeard: The arcade game amped up the violence while doing away with the nerve-wracking obstacle course levels. It's definitely worth a few of your quarters should you ever stumble across a cabinet (or if you play it in [[Creator/{{Rare}} Rare]] Replay.
