** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DnARPUYxhQ music]] that plays during the fight against player's own shadow doppelganger in the arcade version of the second game is very eerie and frightening. Not to mention that the doppelganger itself comes out of nowhere and no explanation is given for its existence.

* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: While the film is generally loathed, the UsefulNotes/NeoGeo fighting game based on it is considered an underrated hidden gem of a fighter in the Neo Geo's library.
* SpiritualLicensee: ''Film/DoubleImpact'' is said to be a better live-action ''Double Dragon'' movie than the official ''Double Dragon'' movie.

** On the other hand, the Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme film ''Film/DoubleImpact'' seems to had been inspired by the games and it's an even more [[SpiritualLicensee faithful adaptation]] than the official ''Double Dragon'' film. Bolo Yeung, the actor who was the inspiration of Abobo's character design (so much that one of Abobo's head swaps is even named "Bolo"), even makes an appearance as a [[GiantMook giant henchman]] who throws oil drums at the heroes.

* BadassDecay: Shadow Khan's Terror Warriors take a sudden decrease in threat level the second time the Dragons face them. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as their first appearance ends with the Lee Twins getting armor specifically built to fight them.

** In the PC Engine version of the second game, the [[BigBad Mysterious Warrior]] dissolves into a skeleton during the ending cutscene.

* 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.
