Ruined Base is a music theme originally composed by the Konami Kukeiha Club for Super Contra.


This theme is actually an arrangement of the second part of "Great Heli-Ruined Base", which is first played during the Great Heli boss/miniboss fight. It is the main boss theme for Super C (the NES conversion of Super Contra), and is played during most boss encounters in that version of the game (with just a few exceptions where "Great Heli-Ruined Base" is played instead).

An arrangement of this theme later appeared in Contra Returns (whereas "Great Heli-Ruined Base" not).
