* AntiClimaxBoss: Giga Skullmageddon in ''Neon'' suffers a good deal from this on higher difficulty levels: on Normal, he's a respectable challenge and about the right difficulty compared to the previous boss, but on higher difficulty levels he becomes vastly easier to kill since he mainly relies on having a high HP count but low defense: this means that since you basically need maxed out mix tapes to actually make it to him on Double Dragon difficulty, he'll take a lot more damage from your attacks than even basic enemies on earlier levels do and will go down that much more faster as a result.
* AudienceAlienatingPremise: The concept of ''Neon'' being an AffectionateParody. As soon as the bright colors and retro game lampooning reared their heads in previews, the gnashing of teeth could be heard for miles. Then people played the game...



* BrokenBase: Fans either ''love'' or ''loathe'' ''Neon's'' cheesy 80s vibe.



%%* HePannedItNowHeSucks: IGN's review of ''Neon'', which game the game a 3 out of 10, has received harsh InternetBackdraft from fans of the game.

* ContinuitySnarl: Because Technos sold the license to pretty much anyone as long as [[MoneyDearBoy the pay was good enough]], most Double Dragon games and media contradict each other and introduce several characters who do not appear in any other media. In general, [=DD1=] and [=DD2=] are canon, and then [[BaseBreaker no one knows.]]

* SpiritualAdaptation: When they came out, the ''Double Dragon'' games were the best ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' games you could buy. It's ''not'' a coincidence that Billy and Jimmy looked like Kenshiro and Raoh, fought punks in a post-apocalyptic world, and ultimately became each other's greatest enemies.

* CreatorsPet: Daj appears midway through season 2 and suddenly ''devours'' the plot. See GodModeSue and TheScrappy below.

* GodModeSue: Daj. In one of his first appearances he takes down Shadow Khan (a deadly demon built up as even more powerful than Shadow Master himself) completely by himself, using nothing but his animal control power.

* ParvumOpus: Usually agreed to be ''Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons'', due to the fact that it was a ObviousBeta, and many other problems as well.

** The Mansion of Terror from the NES version makes the most of its short length with the spooky BGM and, inexplicably, the huge, evil-looking pair of eyes in the wall that open up and stare directly at the player.
