With twin blasters glowing, this robotic bone-shaker will make holes in your team if you're not quick on your feet.
~ Official description from the manual

The Retro Blaster is an enemy in Battletoads/Double Dragon. They are hovering robotic drones which will shoot their twin cannons at the player during certain portions of Level 1, Tail of the Ratship. A pair of them also show up during the final stage.

Description[]

Hovering sentry robots originally from Battletoads that patrol the exterior of the Colossus. While not particularly difficult, they can blast their turrets from the opposite side of the screen, potentially taking players off guard, although they will often play fair and wait for their turn to attack if the player is currently dealing with another enemy.

Oddly (and fortunately) enough, they can be grabbed in midair, even if they're flying way above the player; all that is required is to approach one (its position can be determined by its shadow on the ground) and start attacking; the player will then automatically grab the drone and either start repeatedly knee-kicking it (in the case of the Dragons) or smashing it on the ground (in the case of the 'Toads).
