** The good end route in ''Contra: Hard Corps'' has you chasing down a multi-stage rocket carrying the Alien Cell bomb by riding on top of smaller rockets. Once you reach the main rocket, you proceed to climb up its sides while shooting at alien mutants bursting out of its hull, before reaching the warhead containment unit and fighting the Alien Cell itself. Destroying the alien [[LoadBearingBoss causes the rocket to explode]] and causes you to fall off...but thankfully [[BigDamnHeroes you're rescued by the Air Police]] in the nick of time.
