The Bone Dragons are a pair of enemies in Contra 4. They are long, bony alien mutant fishes that live deep within the ocean.

Description[]

The Bone Dragons are a pair of long serpent-like creatures that live deep under the sea. They are encountered in the Ocean level, right after fighting the first shoal of Killer Fishes. They have hollow lightweight skeletons covered in durable body armor that can be easily busted off with gunfire. They leap out of the water and try to tackle the player off their hovercycles.

The Bone Dragons are quite fast in comparison to the player's speed; they can suddenly come into view and knock off the player if the latter aren't on the move, and can often come out from offscreen if the player dwindles too long near one of the screen's edges, practically giving them no chance to get out of their way. As such, it is advised to use heavy weaponry against them in order to kill them as soon as possible and remove their constant threat. Once their entire armored hides are shot off their bodies, they'll sink to the bottom of the sea and break apart.
