** Master Contra, the BigBad of ''Neo'', won't be fought unless you score an A or S rank in the first five stages. If you beat him in the sixth stage (along with its TimedMission) with an A or S rank as well, you'll have to fight him one final time in his true final form, which is a giant head, while falling through Earth's atmosphere. You don't need to attack him, you can simply dodge all his attacks until he burns up in the atmosphere.

* {{Expy}}: The final boss in the arcade version of ''Super Contra'', Emperor Devil Gava (a.k.a. the Red Falcon Commander himself), is based on Mad Emperor Asmodeus, the final boss of another Konami arcade game, ''[[http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/arcade/c/bats.htm Battlantis]]''. ''Battlantis'' was directed by Hideyuki Tsujimoto, who was co-programmer in the original arcade version of ''Contra'' and later directed ''Super Contra'', as well as ''VideoGame/SunsetRiders'' and ''MysticWarriors''.

** The RecurringBoss "Big Fuzz", looks like a gigantic [[{{Film/Terminator}} Terminator skeleton]], and the two androids that are fought before him in ''Alien Wars'', look like normal sized ones.

* YeahShot: The true ending of ''Contra: Shattered Soldier'' has this, though the characters are shown jumping toward the crowd instead of the camera and they don't really shout "YEAH!"

* DiabolusExMachina: In the Amstrad CPC port of the original game, a particularly sadistic example occurs after killing the final boss. [[spoiler:''For no reason at all'', its destruction somehow triggers the Earth's ''self-destruct mechanism'' which then promptly wipes out humanity and all life along with it, rendering your entire effort moot]]. No, really, [[https://youtu.be/5stKSYNk6Z8?t=7m26s see for yourself here]].



** The original ''Contra'' ends with the destruction of the alien heart, which causes the island the game took place on to explode in a spectacular fashion, with the heroes escaping by helicopter. The Armstrad port, however, took this to [[RocksFallEveryoneDies downright sadistic levels]] by [[spoiler:instead having the '''entire Earth''' explode and [[KillThemAll kill everyone]] after you take out the heart]].
