Background

Genocide Core is the final boss in Gradius NEO Imperial. It, just like Dual Big Core, has two cores. It's armaments are somewhat similar to the Big Core Custom with missiles (both straight firing and semi-homing), homing spread missiles, and a powerful laser. Its upgrade is the snake-like boss from Nemesis Legend: Armageddon, Genocide Cobra.

Attack Patterns

Genocide Core will usually start out aggressive by closing it's side doors and shooting off a quick blast from the middle laser. This is not as big as the Big Core Custom's laser but it is just the right size to cause lot's of damage. Next it may fire four straight firing missiles followed by at least five semi-homing missiles. If it's not doing that, it will shoot small homing spread missiles. As the barriers are destroyed, it will shoot a spread of bullets at the Big Core Custom.
