Bill Rizer: What the hell is it now?!
Commander Doyle: ...on the radar. Rizer, do you read us?!
Dr. Drake: It's the Zagardian life form they were growing in the lab... but without Varanis to control it!
Bill Rizer: Damn, guess we missed one?!

Appearance[]

Java appears rather large, possessing a whole dark colored humanoid/dragon-like body with four arms and red menacing eyes. This appearance is a drastic change from his usual iconic mainline appearances of either just being a flesh-colored neck or being worm-like all over. Overall, this Java appearance strongly resembles a xenomorph from the Alien franchise (which the Contra series takes inspiration from).

Trivia[]

  • This incarnation of Java mixes elements from Demon Dragon God Java from the original Contra timeline, who was the main antagonist and penultimate boss of the original Contra, as well as from Emperor Demon Gava, who was the main antagonist, final boss, and supreme leader of the Red Falcon forces, introduced in Super Contra, combining both into a new, single character. Physically, Java in Operation Galuga resembles the original Java to some extent, with its head having a worm-like structure and seen from the side, but attack-wise, it more closely resembles most Gava fights from previous titles.
  • Java's cyclopean brain, which is exposed after the skull is destroyed, is very similar to the Living Brain Organism Searle, who emerged from Gava's destroyed body in Contra III: The Alien Wars and Neo Contra.
    • In turn, Java's brain bears a strong resemblance to Mother Brain from the Metroid series (another game inspired by the Alien franchise). Furthering the resemblance is the brain being able to fire energy rings. The overall body with its brain exposed also slightly resembles the large body Mother Brain used in Super Metroid.
  • The similarity of the giant arm that protects the Alien Heart during its boss fight in Stage 4, as well as dialogue by Dr. Drake when the monster appears,[1] imply it is the same creature that somehow survived the previous encounter and is now in a completed state, or another one of Varanis's experiments to create a similar creature.
