Bullet Hell (called ''danmaku'', literally "bullet curtain", in Japanese) shooters are a subgenre of {{Shoot Em Up}}s that test both your dodging skills. To put it simply, they're (usually vertically-scrolling) shooters where all the enemies have ''[[MoreDakka lotsa dakka]]''. They often feature extremely elaborate and beautiful patterns of bullet flows, especially for bosses, with hundreds and sometimes thousands of bullets on the screen at once, requiring constant weaving and pattern memorization in order to get the elusive [[RankInflation S++ ranks]]. Not so [[PainfullySlowProjectile painfully slow]] when they ''cover the screen'', eh, tough guy? These games also tend to have {{True Final Boss}}es.

* ''HyperdimensionNeptuniaMk2'' has a DLC character by the name of Cave. [[VideoGame/DonPachi Yes,]] ''[[VideoGame/{{Espgaluda}} that]]'' {{Cave}}. True to the company she represents, she has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sf9-MYOlb6c an attack]] called [[ShoutOut Black]] [[UpdatedRerelease Label]], in which she unleashes bullet hell on the enemy.

** Minor mentions go to 'The Stain' which mimics the bullet patten of Mom's Heart to a smaller degree. This boss can be found as early on as the cave's

* The indie RPG ''{{VideoGame/Undertale}}'' uses brief bullet hell sequences for all enemy attacks.

* The Sentinel and the [[SkippableBoss Xedur Hul Variant]] in ''VideoGame/AxiomVerge'' unleash tons of projectiles. For the former, the level of bullet-hell is so high there is no strategy for it other than "shoot it until it dies before you die".

** There is also a notable "Bullet Hell" section in the game, which takes place during the ending of the Neutral storyline. It features a grotesque abomination of one of the characters in the game, [[spoiler: Flowey]]. It is a frustratingly hard sequence of bullets, fire, vines, and various other projectiles. To add to the irritation, the game closes itself when you die, forcing you to manually open the game for another round of bullet hell.
