This is the first game in the Battletoads series. For other games in the series see the Battletoads category.

Battletoads is a video game created by Rare Ltd. to rival the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games. The first game was released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1991 before being ported to a number of other systems. It is arguably one of the most graphically advanced video games for the NES, at a time when the video game market was turning to the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It is best known for being extremely difficult.

The game stars two anthropomorphic toads named after skin disorders (Rash and Zitz), who have to save their friends Pimple and the Princess Angelica from the Dark Queen, ruler of Planet Ragnarok. They will do so with the assistance of Professor T. Bird and his space ship, The Vulture. The backstory of Battletoads, written by Rare employee Guy Miller, was also published in a Nintendo Power comic. The storyline in Battletoads in Battlemaniacs is somewhat based on this back story.
