Power Pro Kun Pocket 8 (パワプロクン ポケット 8 Pawa Puro Kun Pocket 8?) is a sports game developed and published by Konami for the Nintendo DS handheld system. It is the eighth installment in the Power Pro Kun Pocket series, which in turn is a spinoff of the Power Pros series. The game was released on December 1, 2005, exclusively in Japan.

One of the minigames is a Contra parody.


The "Contra" parody minigame found in this title seems to be loosely based on Contra III: The Alien Wars, where at the end the player has to fight a reimagined version of the Armored Chopper boss from Super Contra. However, the gameplay experience greatly differs from that of the classic run-and-gun franchise, mostly due to technical reasons, such as the player character being too big and slow, and enemy projectiles being way too fast. Furthermore, the weapons' power-up nomenclature is different; for example, the "S" power-up does not stand for the Spread Gun, as one would expect.
