The Psycho Mother (unofficial name) is a secret boss in Contra: Hard Corps.

Location[]

In the Junkyard stage, right before entering the room to fight Noiman Cascade, if the player climbs up the wall they will find the Mysterious Character, who will ask them if they want to fight in the Battle Arena. If the player agrees, they will enter a crowded fighting arena where they'll fight Simondo Belmont, the Psycho Mother and Huge Face.

Description[]

The Psycho Mother is a large demonic creature who pushes an armored baby carriage that has a mobile cannon attached near its front. She fights by ramming the carriage against the wall and the turret is capable of launching flashing homing missiles at the player at a fast rate of fire. Her equally gigantic and ghoulish child also rises from the carriage and attacks by extending its arms in an attempt to grab the player. Once the child is defeated, the mother will angrily keep on ramming the carriage into the wall repeatedly as it spews smoke. The carriage itself can be stood on when the child is not present, but it doesn't feature any traction, meaning that a character may slide off of it if it moves. The side of the carriage is always lethal to touch.

If the player is careful enough to avoid the incoming attacks, they can go to a safe zone on the top-right corner of the room and just keep blasting until this boss is defeated. However, the homing missiles can still prove to be a threat in this safe zone if the turret wasn't taken care of beforehand.

The Mother herself has around 80 HP. Interestingly, homing attacks do not lock-on to the mother at all, but will lock on to both the child and turret (if present).
