YMMV: Xenozoic Tales
  • Adaptation Displacement: Most people think of the arcade game when they hear the title Cadillacs and Dinosaurs.
  • Animation Age Ghetto: Basically what killed the cartoon after a few episodes. They tried to make it a smarter, darker TMNT-killer and it was a bit too heady for a Saturday morning cartoon. Maybe if they had revived it for the Cartoon Network era it would have had more success...
  • Anvilicious: Some have suggested that the environmental overtones are just a bit heavy-handed in places. Then again, Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped.
  • That One Boss: The arcade game is ruthless but Tyrog and Slisaur are the toughest bosses in the game aside from the Final Boss himself. The former is due to you fighting him three times, each stronger than the last with little health recovery if you're lucky. The latter is being a Dual Boss if single player or three bosses in multiplayer. If you had a hard time fighting Slice by himself, good luck fighting more of them.
  • The Problem with Licensed Games: Averted; the beat-em-up arcade game is considered to be one of the classics of the genre, thanks to it being developed by Capcom.
