The recurring bosses of Contra - Part 4

Written by Recoil

Super Power Robot Yokozuna

This huge killer robot is quite the sprinter. Thanks to his superior hydraulic limbs he can even outrun trains, and he's got a wide array of weapons and attacks at his disposal to carry out the job. Interesting to note is that "Yokozuna" is the highest rank in professional sumo wrestling. I guess the name comes from how he pushes the train like a sumo wrestler to make it stop.

Contra: Hard Corps
Yokozuna makes his first appearance.

Contra: Shattered Soldier
The vastly improved model, Yokozuna Jr is deployed to stop Bill Rizer. The new model has the ability to transform into an airplane.

Slave Beast Taka

Taka is, simply put, a monster turtle from hell. The creature has a nasty habit of spitting out alien larvae that come crawling your way. It also stretches its neck out in an attempt to chew you to pieces. You don't want to get too close to this fellow.

Contra III: The Alien Wars
Taka makes its first appearance, with quite an entrance.

Contra: Legacy of War
The PS1 graphics don't really do this monster justice, but there he is.

Contra: Shattered Soldier
A much fiercer version, who also likes to make an extravagant entrance. Beware of its second form, you're in for a nasty surprise.
