* DoomedByCanon: [[spoiler:Bahamut is the BigBad in ''Contra: Hard Corps''.

Doctor Mandrake as well since he also appears as an antagonist and dies in that game, though again, it could be someone else with the same name.

There's one who resembles a Gigafly (from ''Contra III'', ''Shattered Soldier'' and ''Contra 4'') that tries to "kidnap" your character by taking them away to the top of the screen. ** The Cerberus boss resembles Devil Emperor Gava, who [[RecurringBoss appears in other Contra titles]], but is much more mobile.

** 573-Draconis from the end of stage 3, seems to be based on the blue battleship/submarine boss from the begining of the second stage in ''Contra: Shattered Soldier''. It also resembles the TIM Gunboat in ''Neo Contra''. ** The Lux Corona resembles a combination of Rocket Ninja Sasaki (from ''Contra Rebirth'') and Great Awakening Robo Big Fuzz. ** Arachne, the transforming black robot from stage 6, looks, and behaves like a [[CompositeCharacter combination of]] Super Power Robot Yokozuna from ''Contra: Hard Corps/Shattered Soldier'', and the Heli-Robot from the begining of stage 6 in ''Shattered Soldier''.

** All the increases to your max number of starting lives in Rising Mode reference previous Contra titles in their names: "Uprising S" = Super Contra, "Uprising III" = Contra III, "Uprising SS" = Shattered Soldier, ect. And then there's the prohibitively expensive [[KonamiCode "Uprising 30"]] earned by completing Rising Mode...

*** He's quite similar to [[BlazBlue Jin Kisaragi]] too. Both are sometimes at least a bit [[AxeCrazy crazy]], had a deep bond with one of the characters, that was broken(Ragna/Bahamut), and consider themselves kind-off the good guy, at least in the begining, despite being on the definitely wrong side of the conflict. Their faces and hair are also definitely similar.
