** You can play this sequence as a minigame afterward, and you can select from two ships: the R-360 cabinet you use in the story mode, and the Syrinx, which was meant to be the main ship for ThunderForce VI on the Dreamcast before it got scrapped. The final boss theme, ''The Justice Ray Part.3'' is also on the "Broken Thunder" soundtrack for ThunderForce VI.

* Level 2 of ''Battletoads'' for GameBoy is a horizontal-scrolling shmup level. Level 7 of the original ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' would be this, except that you can't shoot anything. Level 4 of ''Battletoads and Double Dragon'' is a turn-and-thrust shooting stage clearly based on ''VideoGame/SolarJetman'' (a previous {{Rare}} game for the NES), and the final level of the arcade ''Battletoads'' is best describable as a 2D side-view rail shooter. Another horizontal shooter level is "Pot Holing," exclusive to the UsefulNotes/{{Amiga}} port of ''Battletoads''.

** In ''Touched!!'', Ashley's boss stage has you controlling the Earth itself, dodging bullets and other stuff before finally shooting away at an alien mothership, similar to a heavily toned-down version of ''Videogame{{/Touhou}}''.

* ''[[VideoGame/AlexKidd Alex Kidd In The Enchanted Castle]]'' has the In The Air level, where Alex is required to use the missile-firing Pedicopter to fly over a long distance and get to the castle. The Pedicopter can be used in other levels too, but it's not required there and there's very rarely opportunity for long shmup runs.
