''[[http://www.tosstheturtle.us/ Toss The Turtle]]'' is an online game that is almost ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. You shoot a turtle out of a cannon and pepper him with bullets in the hope of getting major distance. Along the way, you can grab cash for upgrades at the shop and ammo for the gun to continue shooting the poor turtle.

Also, the land is littered with [[SpikesOfDoom spikes]], [[TheGoomba goombas]], bombs, [[FunnyAnimal gangster hounds]], angry suns, [[PlayingWithFire flame dudes]], small and big birds, street fighting bananas, cars, [=UFOs=], chainsaw-wielding maniacs, and angry ground creatures. That pretty much makes it a [[WidgetSeries Weird and Hilarious American Thing]].

You can find it on Website/{{Newgrounds}} [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/508440 here]] or at it's [[http://www.tosstheturtle.us/ official website]]. The artist, Gonzo, has also gone on to create art for another game, ''Goin' Up''.

A sequel, ''Super Toss the Turtle'', was released December 22nd for iOS and Google Play. It includes the same action packed game play, while adding new cannons, guns, power ups, and characters.
* AmusingInjuries
* BlingBlingBang: The Golden Gun, probably the best out of all your weapons.
* BloodyHilarious
* CatchPhrase: [[StreetFighter SHORYUKEN!]]
* CollisionDamage
* CosmeticAward: Several. Some of them, however, actually increase your effectiveness in torturing the turtle.
* {{Crossover}}: The August 2017 event for ''VideoGame/{{Zombidle}}'' features a crossover with characters from Toss the Turtle as well as [=GonzoSSM's=] other works.
* DepthDeception: You can collide with the sun without even ''leaving the atmosphere''.
* DeusExNukina: You can buy several nukes to bolster your speed and height.
* EquipmentBasedProgression: The game has this as the main game mechanic. The farther you launch the projectile the more money is available for upgrades, and each upgrade helps you go further, and so on ad infinitum.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning
* {{Expy}} - That Squirtle, I mean, turtle sure [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} looks familiar]].
** Also the [[strike:Diglett]] angry ground creature.
* FunnyAnimal: The gangster hounds.
* TheGoomba
* [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus One Items]]: The Newgrounds Tank and the Golden Gun. With both of these weapons, you can easily breach the 100-mile mark.
* JustOneMoreLevel: There's an achievement for that.
** Three of them!
* LethalJokeWeapon: That banana gives you the biggest boost out of anything you could possibly hit.
* MadeOfIron: It doesn't matter how much abuse the turtle goes through, he just sits up and breaths a sigh of relief when he comes to a stop. And even if you hit the spikes, he's still up and about, none the worse for wear.
* MoreDakka: You buy increasingly more powerful tanks and guns over the course of the game.
* {{Pun}}: "Get shot up" says the achievement for landing in the gunfire of a ganster dog and being propelled upward.
* {{Shoryuken}}: The banana performs this maneuver if you so much as touch him.
* ShoutOut: Several, to ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'', ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' and perhaps Newgrounds' own revered characters.
** The Newgrounds Tank from the Website/{{Newgrounds}} logo.
** [[Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun The Golden Gun]], with its reputation as one of the more powerful weapons in ''VideoGame/GoldenEye1997''.
** The bonus modifier for somehow not hitting any objects is "[[Creator/VinceOffer Boring Life]]".
** In some stages there are the remains of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'''s cyborg ninja on the ground.
** The title image, with the turtle on a cliff looking at a distant city, is reminiscent of ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden''.
** And the title theme is taken directly from ''{{VideoGame/Contra}}.''
** One of the enemies is a [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Goomba]] wearing a [[HighClassGlass top hat and monocle]]. Stomping only one of these gets you the bonus modifier "[[MemeticMutation Weegee]]".
** Another enemy is a Banana, who delivers a [[StreetFighter Shoryuken]] uppercut when hit. He's even called Bananayuken in the sequel.
** Hitting enough UFO's gives you a bonus modifier at the end of the level with some bonus cash. The name of the modifier: [[TheWaroftheWorlds War Of The Worlds]]
* SpikesOfDoom: This particular variety stops you instantly, unless you have a chest bomb on.
* StandardFPSGuns: With a slingshot as your [[WithThisHerring starter weapon]].
* TankGoodness: The most powerful cannon in the game is the Newgrounds Tank.
* TurtlePower
* VideoGameCaringPotential-You can guide the turtle to a safe landing and end his suffering...
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential-...After launching the poor shmuck out of a cannon and shooting at him.
