Rocket Ninja Sasaki (ロケット忍者ササキ Roketto Ninja Sasaki?) is a recurrent miniboss in the Contra series.


Sasaki is a very agile ninja robot who flies via a rocket-pack on his back. He wields an extendible hook with which he can latch onto objects and pull himself toward them.

He also carries a katana on his back with which he slashes at enemies in close combat. Each time he does so, he also throws a shuriken that travels some distance and then returns arcing in an upward direction.
