Is This Battletoads

From Encyclopedia Dramatica

(Redirected from Battletoads)
Jump to: navigation, search
This is Battletoads.

Battletoads, Combat Frogs, Conflict Amphibians, War Tadpoles, Internecine Anurans, Bufonidae Proelii, etc. is the most awesome game ever created. It kicks the shit out of TMNT. The first game was released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1991 and then ported to the Amiga in 1992, Sega Mega Drive/Genesis in 1993, Sega Game Gear in 1993, and Amiga CD32 in 1994.

This meme/troll started on 4chan after a VG screenshot contest, the "Is this Battletoads?" phenomenon is now a modern classic and appears whenever someone requests a game title, information or screenshot. Another good use is to go to the most popular boards on GameFAQs and inquire whether or not the game in question is, in fact, Battletoads.

The correct answer to the question is, of course: "No, it's Doom III", whatever the game is.



Contents

The game itself

Battletoads is known as one of the hardest video games in history, and it's also surprisingly good, assuming you don't go batshit insane trying (and failing) to beat it, chances are that you will quit within the first 2-3 levels.

The story, in essence, is that a leather-clad whore called the Dark Queen captures one of the Battletoads, Pimple, and the princess, probably to rape them. The Battletoads' pedophile leader, Coach, tells the other two, Rash and Zitz, to rescue them. And the Battletoads, being the Conflict Amphibians they are, do so.

The third level, being completely impossible, has caused many a player to completely rage while playing, so most people now use this simple plan to actually enjoy some of the game:

  1. Play until Level 3
  2. Turn off the machine and insert a Game Genie
  3. Enter GAXAALAA and begin playing
  4. ????
  5. PROFIT!

Rebirth of an old meme

 
 
STOP CALLING MY FUCKING STORE
 

 

—Random GameStop Employee

Suddenly, on the 12th, 13th and 14th of November 2007, Anonymous decided to prank call GameStop, asking for Battletoads pre-orders. /b/lackup was formed in the name of the lulz and lots of prank calls were made.

Moar than 40 GameStop stores were targeted, some stores received over 9000 calls all day.

At first, some stores were friendly and explained that they don't have it. After a few hours they got really pissed. Some employees called Anon very bad things, things you can't say on Faux News. Other employees thought this was funny, and joked about Battletoads.

A few weeks after the beginning of the raid, according to Anonymous spies, a GameStop conference call announced that all Battletoads calls should be handled politely. 4chan was also mentioned. /b/tards were called "a hazardous group of people on the internet" and theorized to be attempting to take over GameStop.

PROTIP: If you decide to troll Gamestop, and they ask for a name, say Richard C. Mongler

The best store to call is:785.760.7850

2010: Re-rebirth of an old meme

Blizzard causes massive butthurt among their own fans but it's for a good cause.

On July 26th 2010 at 10 pm, Gamestops around the country held a massive pre-release party for Starcraft II fans waiting for the game to go on sale at midnight. Gamestop employees were forced to leave their parents' basements during their normal social time to sell special copies of the game that contain Battletoads as a hidden fourth race, in addition to the usual Zerg, Terran, and Protoss factions.

Best video game of 2007

Over 9,000 readers of Kerrang have decided that Battletoads was the best video game of 2007, many of whom were also avid participants of the 4chan /b/ board. Lots of people voted, but the boards got shut down since people also mass voted for some other girl as the sexiest female. The winner was supposed to get its name into Kerrang's December 2007 issue as the best video game.

Update! BestActEVER.com is currently using an autovoter for the 2008 issue which includes votes for Battletoads as the THE BEST video game.

LiveJournal is on the case

Sometime last Thursday, LJ user slaneyder failed to lurk moar and made a post in the community customers_suck, whining about the people calling and asking for Battletoads. Lulz ensued when several LiveJournal faggots hopped onto the /b/tard bandwagon, under the assumption that being a /b/tard makes you cool.

See the full thread! - Featuring an old friend: Merle Whitefire, survivor of the First Feminazi War.

Also in the customers_suck comm, known furry defconn1 made a post about how a customer had called them upset because one of his co-workers had apparently given the customer's son a case for a Wii version of Battletoads. Obviously, as no such product actually exists, customer Jr was understandably heartbroken. "It's sad that some people are so bored they can only think of destructive things to do."

The new Battletoads games are being released

/b/


Gamespot's site as of September 1st, 2009


At the end of June 2008, the pre-ordered Battletoads games was still not in stores. Since the development of the Battletoads games for the Wii and Xbox 360 took some time, Anonymous decided to release the game himself. Covers, flyers and other kinds of game art was made. The plan this time was to sneak fake covers into GameStop stores.

Not so obvious memes were added to the covers, The plan was simple, fucking with GameStop employees as usual.

The Great Battletoads Raid of July 2008

July 12th is an important date for Anonymous. Two years ago marked the first Great Habbo Raid and exactly one year later history repeated itself. While protestfags were off saving the world with their Spy vs. Sci protests, the Anonymous who seek a greater goal did so at 2:00PM July 12th.

Battletoads: The Movie

Battletoads Movie.jpg
Something you would most likely see in a Battletoads movie.

On 23rd July 2008 Battletoads - The Movie was announced by Universal Studios.

Due to the incredibly high demand and hype surrounding this movie it's recommended that you pre-order tickets at your local cinemas when they become available. Call in and ask about the date, all pre-orders get a special Battletoads card and 50% off Battletoads for the Wii at your local GameStop!

The cast includes Will Smith, Samuel L. Jackson and Bill Cosby providing the voices of the toads.

Preview critics have called the movie a CGI sensation.

—4chan

Richard Fleming is a GameStop employee that on 12/07/08 was on the verge of becoming a meme. He was asked about Battletoads nearly to the point of becoming an hero.

His fellow employee Eric picked up where he left off, while he was on "lunch break", though it is more likely that he was bleeding in a corner. Eric was a fellow /b/tard and had a taste for Mudkipz.

An anon also found Richard's GameStop# which is 714-544-9975. The Address of his Gamestop is 13210 Jamboree Road, Irvine,CA, 92602. UPDATE: Richard's new store is #5082 @ 26750 Aliso Creek Rd, Aliso Viejo CA, 92656. Phone #(949)643-8570. Have fun! Also in the news, Richard is hated by his own employees for his display of faggotry of levels thought unobtainable. Richard is also a huge fan of Full Metal Alchemist. He has angel wings on his back, saying they were for someone he knew in the Army that died, then telling someone else they were from Full Metal Alchemist. His appearance is one of a fatass with a jewfro and the biggest christbot to evar grace the mystical portal of Gamestop. Richard has fuckbuddies David and Jacob, who apparently is a /b/tard himself telling someone they had "over 9000 copies that came with mudkip oil changes".
