Nouei (小型ミサイル潜水艦 ノウエイ Kogata Misairu Sensuikan Nouei?, lit. "Small Missile Submarine Nouei") is a recurring boss in the Contra series. It is a ballistic missile submarine equipped with a wide assortment of artillery devices.

Appearances[]

Operation C[]

Nouei is the first boss of the game and is encountered at the end of Area 1. The vessel has three mobile turrets: one on its front, one on its sail, and one on its back, which can hide behind an armored shell for a short time. It also has five compartments on its hull, three on its front and two on its back, from which it launches missiles straight upward. The hatches can only be damaged when they are open; and once destroyed, they'll become unable to fire any more missiles. The submarine can also submerge for a short period of time while troops of Common Soldiers enter the battle. Once all of its armaments are destroyed, the entire ship will explode and sink.

Contra 4[]

In this game, Nouei appears as a miniboss in the middle of the Harbor stage. It retains most of its previous incarnation's characteristics, although this time it only counts with two turrets, three cannons and four hatches; and instead of missiles, it fires laser beams straight upward. Again, destroying all of its armaments will make the entire ship to explode.
