The Merging Hemipod is a miniboss in C: The Contra Adventure.

Description[]

The Merging Hemipod is a species of alien that is fought as a boss in Pyramid. It starts the fight by dropping down from the ceiling and firing flame attacks at the player that stay burning on the ground for a while.

After taking enough damage, it jumps to the side and summons another of its kind, which starts as a sprout and rapidly grows into a big red bulb that bursts into another fully formed Merging Hemipod. They then connect to each other and fight as one creature by shooting laser blasts and a targeting light to get the player. It also performs cartwheels and flips side over side while firing lasers, as well as jumping around, and at times, jumping directly at the player.

After taking enough damage, its legs bust off and its remaining stumps function as wings; it then starts flying around dropping pods that cause streams to fire up from them. It keeps flying around dropping them until it takes enough damage and goes up in fiery bursts.
