Konami games

* "Life Force/Salamander" (Famicom/NES) - Enter the code at the title screen for 30 lives.

* "Gradius II" (PC Engine) - Pausing the game and then entering the code Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, II, and I activates full power. This code works more than once on Easy mode.

* "Gradius III" (Super Famicom/SNES) - Normally entering the code while paused activates all powerups, but the player's ship is instantly destroyed upon unpausing. The player must enter the code by substituting Left and Right on the control pad with the L and R shoulder buttons to apply the power-ups without penalty.

* "Gradius III" (PS2) - Pausing the game and then entering the code activates all powerups except for Speed Up and Double.

* "Parodius Da! -Shinwa kara Owarai e-" (GB) - Pausing the game and then entering the code activates all powerups except for Speed Up and Double. Entering the code when the Konami Logo appears enables the Sound Test mode.

However, entering B, B, X, X, A, Y, A, Y, Up, Left and unpausing will fully power up the player. The second code uses the same finger-movements when the SNES controller is held upside-down.

Contra series

* "Operation C" (GB) - Entering the code at the title screen will enable the Stage Select mode. Choose the desired stage by pressing select and then press start to begin. This code does not work in the Japanese version ("Contra"), since the Stage Select screen is a default feature.

* "" (GBA) - Entering the code when the Konami logo appears and choose Boss Rush to play as the original Simon Belmont, with the music and animations from the original "Castlevania" for NES. While significantly harder due to the limited movement of Simon Belmont, the player can do more damage with this character and collect far more hearts to fuel subweapon use against the bosses than the other two characters. Simon is also limited to special weapons from the first game: Holy Water, Knife, Axe, and Cross. (Additionally, the Holy Water weapon gives the "static flame" from the original "Castlevania", not the moving flame from when Juste uses it.)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series
