** The arcade versions were intentionally made to be short, as most arcade games are meant to play in short sessions. A perfect playthrough of either game can be done in less than ten minutes, which is an ideal time period if you're a kid in the 80s waiting for his mother to finish her grocery shopping.

* MoodWhiplash: ''Contra: Hard Corps'' looked like to be set on a less bleak universe and more fighting human terrorists that used a lot of robots. In one of the path, however, suddenly the Alien Cell broke loose and takes you straight to a WombLevel that looks more like belonging from ''Contra'' games that has Bill Rizer in it. You also get to see Bahamut's soldiers infested on screen and becoming alien creeps, and the music itself takes a darker turn unlike the rest of the action-packed stuffs. [[NightmareFuel Brrr...]]

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: At the time the earliest games were released, there was controversy over the US, under Ronald Reagan, supporting rebel groups in Nicaragua called the Contras, short for ''Contrarevolucionarios'', or "Counter-Revolutionaries." This caused some minor controversy and may have contributed to European release of the arcade game being titled ''Gryzor'' (since support for the Contras was considered right-wing and heavily opposed in Europe) and why the NES version of ''Super Contra'' and the Game Boy ''Contra'' game were retitled ''Super C'' and ''Operation C'' respectively.

** Genbei "Jaguar" Yagyu and Bill Rizer in ''Neo Contra'' especially in Joke Ending. To clarify, they swim in space, [[{{Fundoshi}} only in loincloths]], while Bill holds that of Genbei, and to add a cherry on top of this all,
[[HellIsThatNoise there are sounds of gay sex in the background]].

* HoYay Bill and Lance, especially how their [[spoiler: broken]] bond practically moves the story in ''Shattered Soldier''. Also, in the European ''Gryzor'' contuity, the title is from their shared surname, as if they ''were'' a married couple (well, they could be also brothers, but that wasn't ever clarified, and the subtext remains).

** In the original ''Contra: Hard Corps'', there is a Joke Ending, where' the player character is transported to prehistoric Earth, and becomes a monarch of proto-humans, with one of the females being the player character's queen. This happens [[PurelyAestheticGender even if you play as Sheena.]] Of course, it also happens if you [[{{Robosexual}} play as Browny]].
