The Chimeric Alien Tarantula is a miniboss in Contra: Legacy of War and C: The Contra Adventure.

Description[]

A spider-like creature that has six legs and a large head with two affixed cannons. It can only be damaged when its weak point comes out of its lower area.

Trivia[]

  • Despite being called a "tarantula", it only has six legs like an insect.
  • The fact that it lowers its weak spot to allow it to take damage is similar both in function and looks to the Small Battleship's core from Contra: Hard Corps.
  • It returns in the training mission of C: The Contra Adventure, implying that it was the same creature being rebuilt and secretly used by the human forces for training purposes.
