Contra: Hard Corps (1994) was the first game in the series to be exclusively released on a non-Nintendo console. The game took a lot of elements from previous installments and spiced them up with even more dynamic combat, different playable characters, nonlinear plot and about twice the amount of boss fights.

In this movie the author takes the secret "fifth ending", thereby skipping most of the game. The Japanese version was chosen because, for some reason, it gives the players a health bar, allowing them to take some damage without dying.

This is Ash Williams's second take at this route, now 2.23 seconds faster than previously.
