This is another organic level. The music is Dead End Cell.

The Tentacle Golems from Gradius are back, and although almsot the same, they can only spawn two arms at a time. They have less health, and Type B(Spread Bomb, Tail Gun, Ripple Laser) takes advantage.

There's not much after the stage comes in, although the passageway in the middle of stage narrows. 4 Tentacle Golems occipy it here, and Octas and Suparugus are found during the stage.

The regenerating walls from Salamander are found at the end of the stage, although different. Here, there are spaces where Tentacle Golems are taking it up, making a limited amount of space for you.

The boss is Gregol.
