Gradius V Stage 1 Is the first stage of Gradius V. It takes place partly within the Gradian force's sub-orbital space station and partly within space.


It starts off in a large hangar/spaceship and then exits into an area full of Zelos Forces, not dissimilar to stage 1 of both Gradius II and Gradius IV or stage 4 of Gradius Galaxies. (minus them spawning enemies, of course.)



  • it is unknown if the player is trying to stop an attack on the planet, or just the sub-orbital space station in this stage. This is due to the fact that while there are enemies within the station itself, none appear to be attacking anything but the Vic Viper.
