|This article is a work in progress.|
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
The long-awaited (at the time) sequel to Bloons Tower Defense 4, Bloons Tower Defense 5 was a massive expansion to the series' tried-and-true formula of simians attacking horribly misspelled bags of helium.
In 2012, a deluxe version and a mobile version were released (the former of which is now gone forever), and in 2020, this version of the game was re-released alongside the company's other Flash games under the Ninja Kiwi Archive on Steam, ensuring the game's continued existence beyond Flash's discontinuation.

The Monkey Engineer's Bloon Traps from BTD5 Deluxe exist, and appear to be fully-functional. When spawned on the path, it automatically sucks in up to 250 bloons that pass over it. Once the trap is full, it will explode after a few seconds, giving cash equal in value to all the bloons it sucked in. It can also be manually harvested by clicking, which gives double the amount of cash it would otherwise.
Wizard Lord Description
No longer an apprentice, this monkey wizard has mastered the dark side and needs to absorb the tower with the most cash put in to it to survive.
The Wizard Lord has a unique description for its tooltip, separate from the Monkey Apprentice. This is impossible to view, as the tower only comes pre-placed in a special mission and cannot be selected from the tower menu.
Mode Description Placeholders
In early versions of BTD5, the script that handled the menu for choosing game modes contained placeholder descriptions for each mode. All these strings were removed in an update.

Click this one if you're bored of easy!
Click this one if you're totally 1337 or something...
Ever taken a girl to the beach? Something about experimenting.
Make no mistake. The end IS coming.
Early Track Names
In early versions of BTD5, there were no tooltips for the tracks, meaning there was no way to see the names of the tracks in-game at the time. The strings containing the names for the tracks did exist, but were unused until tooltips were added in an update, which also changed the names of several tracks.

- The track used in the Protect Monkey Town mission is considered Beginner difficulty. Since the track cannot be selected on the track menu, this parameter is never seen.
- The image used for the Full House mission thumbnail is named two_of_a_kind. This suggests the mission originally had a different objective, challenging the player to use only two towers per type at a time (like a less extreme version of the mission There Can Be Only One), rather than 5 towers of any type.
- The Wizard Lord, like the Monkey Apprentice, is configured to contribute to the Temple of the Monkey God's tornado-type attack when sacrificed. However, the Wizard Lord cannot be sacrificed, and it has no cash value, so this parameter is never utilised.
