[[WMG: That turtle is TooKinkyToTorture]]
Feel a bit guilty about [[VideogameCrueltyPotential all those horrible things you're doing]] to that poor turtle? Don't worry about it! The turtle likely signed up for this game himself to begin with, because he ''likes'' being thrown out of a cannon, shot at, bounced off various objects, etc. Yes, he may look horrified while being thrown through the air, and during the loading screen, but at the end of the toss (assuming he doesn't land on spikes or get abducted by aliens) he looks more exhausted than in pain.
* The Kongregate badge for three million feet in a single launch has the description "You know, he secretly loves it."


[[WMG: This game takes place in a BizarroUniverse of HappyTreeFriends]]
Think about it. The {{Ridiculously Cute Critter}}s in ''HappyTreeFriends'' are MadeOfPlasticine. Something as seemingly harmless as a playground ride or a shutting bus window can easily tear them apart. The just-as-cute turtle in ''VideoGame/TossTheTurtle'' is MadeOfIron. Despite the LudicrousGibs throughout the game, he can be shot at, blown up, [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace thrown out of the atmosphere]], but as long as he doesn't hit the SpikesOfDoom he'll be just fine in the end. Both works involve [[GrotesqueCute adorable cartoon animals getting involved in bloody violence]], but the end result is quite different.
