The Hazmat Soldier (unofficial name) is an unused enemy in Contra 4.

Description[]

The Hazmat Soldier appears as a human (or humanoid creature) wearing a silver hazmat suit with a red visor and carrying a large flamethrower pack on his back, with the connected flamethrower gun sort of resembling a shotgun. Given his appearance, this enemy was probably intended to appear in either the Laboratory stage or the Harvest Yard.

This character is seen only in an unused testing room via hacking, where there are two present. Because this room positions the hero far out of the flamethrower soldier's range, it's unknown what attacks this enemy possesses, if any. The solider can only be seen slowly pacing back and forth with his large flamethrower in hand. While pacing, he points his flamethrower upward (although this is probably due to the player being positioned high offscreen).

Why these enemies were scrapped is unclear, or if they were meant to be enemies at all. It is also currently unknown if this character can be hacked outside of the test level(s).
