Not to be confused with Arachne.

Arachnid[1] is a miniboss in Contra 4. It is a gigantic spider-like robot.

Appearances[]

Contra 4[]

A gigantic spider-like robot that appears midway through Stage 7, City, right after the Rino X-1 Battle Tank. The mechanical monster remains at the top screen, perched from two buildings, from where it starts shooting projectiles at the player below. It will eventually fire a flame shot at one of the walls, which will split in two once it comes in contact with it, with both resulting flames traveling along it, one upward and one downward.

This miniboss arguably poses a real threat, though, due to its predictable attack patterns, and can be destroyed quite quickly if the player manages to keep constant fire on it.

Contra Returns[]

The Arachnid boss reappears in Contra Returns.
