** ''Gradius V'' accepts both the left-right-left-right and shoulder trigger versions (in the case of the latter, L1, R1, L1, R1). One version gives you full power with Laser, the other is full power with Double. The amount of times it's used is recorded in the high score table under "Konami Command".
** ''Gradius [[MarketBasedTitle Galaxies / Generation / Advance]]'' gives you about three seconds after inputting the classic version of the code and unpausing before you explode. The shoulder button version carries no such penalty.
