Watch out for his upper-cut! It will put you on the mat where you belong. Once you find his tell-tale signs it is possible to beat him, but man, is it tough.

7. Mother Brain from Metroid (NES) 

Mother Brain's stage is extremely tricky. The three D's of this board are dip, duck, and dive. If you can't master that, blast off.

A lesser know boss that can be avoided. An almost impossible fight if you are a low level.

He's back! The reoccurring creature from pretty much every Contra game there is. This time he is tough as nails!
