** Inverted with the Japanese arcade version of ''Super C'', which has a second loop not featured in the overseas release that is basically the hardest setting of the game with your score, lives and weapons restored from the first playthrough but no continues nor joining in. The western version ends the game once the final stage is cleared.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the arcade version of the original game, you have to wait until the other player runs out of lives before you can continue if you are playing cooperatively. Inverted in ''Super Contra'', where you can continue at any time without having to wait until the other player runs out of lives.



* HardModeFiller: Completing either NES game will restart the game on a harder difficulty and they can be played in countless loops until the player uses all of their continues. Surprisingly averted with the first arcade game, which ends on a single loop. The Japanese arcade version of ''Super C'' has a second loop not in the overseas release that is even harder than the "Very Hard" setting (if only for the sole fact that continuing is impossible).

** The Famicom version of ''Contra'' also had a secret stinger by holding Select and Start during the end credits, foreshadowing [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Red Falcon's eventual return]].

** The ending of ''Contra III: The Alien Wars'' is similar; the game merely addresses the player to congratulate him for his efforts, and for completing the game in Hard difficulty.
