~ Description from the official Contra: Operation Galuga website

Lieutenant Stanley Ironside is a playable character in Contra: Operation Galuga.

He was voiced by Isaac Robinson-Smith.

History[]

A soldier bearing heavy armor. He fights alongside the Contra unit during Operation Galuga. The numbers 6645-⬛ can be seen on his left shoulder plate, as well as an insignia of the GX Army's logo.

Shortly after Bill Rizer and Lance Bean, of the Contra Unit, made landfall on Galuga Island, Stanley flies in to assist the heroes and welcome them on their "island vacation" as they climb the great mountain heights (occurring during real time gameplay). After some dialogue, Stanley flies away.

While the Contra Unit deals with their task of gathering information, Stanley searches throughout the rest of the island for his missing unit. Battling through monsters that surprise him, he finally encounters his lost platoon, under the merciless Red Falcon's control. He contacts Bill for assistance, requesting backup. Bill and the Contra commandos head toward an Ice Train to assist Stanley, but also so they can use the train to lead them straight toward the Lemris. Both Stanley and the Contra Unit put up powerful opposition toward the GX Army and Red Falcon's alien threats. Stanley eventually gets caught by a stray Gigafly and is forced to separate from the commandos.

Trivia[]

  • Stanley's assigned icon color is beige.
  • Stanley is the only survivor of the GX Army.
  • Stanley's armor bears a strong resemblance to Iron Man from Marvel Comics, more specifically the Hulkbuster Armor. The goldish coloring may reference the fully-gold armor Iron Man once wore during his original appearances. The overall character appears to also be a reference to Marvel's War Machine.
    • Further referencing this connection could be the last name of the character: Ironside.
  • Stanley makes a guest appearance as a playable character in the "Operation Guns" DLC of the roguelike shoot 'em up game, Vampire Survivors.
