Wonderbird (飛行大魔神ワンダーバード Hikō Daimashin Wandābādo?, lit. "Flying Devil Wonderbird") is a miniboss in Contra: Hard Corps.

Description[]

An heavily-armed jet-like aircraft that pursues the Hard Corps squad while they are soaring through the sky, hitching a ride atop an Air Police's cruiser. The aircraft appears to be composed of alien technology, bearing bio-mechanical parts such as a lightweight mechanical exoskeleton and a skull-like cockpit on its front.

The vessel counts with a pair of triple cannons, one on each wing, from which it fires three large energy balls in a spreading manner as it glides from side to side. Below its front cockpit it features a napalm gun from which it shoots a stream of flame straight down.

The heroes need to simply avoid its fire while delivering weapons fire of their own to defeat it, while taking care not to fall off the aircraft. The enemy vessel blinks constantly a slow flashing white when receiving damage. Once the aircraft has sustained enough damage, it will start exploding and drop down; however, in a last effort to stop the heroes, it will manage to take enough height one last time and crash with their cruiser, severely damaging it and forcing it to perform an emergency crash landing, where the player will be forced to get off the ship and proceed on foot for the rest of the level.
