Background

Lizard Core is the boss of stage 9 of Gradius III Arcade and stage 2 of the X68000 remake of Nemesis II. It is a very tricky boss to fight due to the two arms the boss has and it's mass of lasers.The other name for it is Plant Core (which the arms can be destroyed and watch out for shrapnel bullets).

Attack Patterns

When the boss appears, the arms will extend from the middle area and then move up and down firing lasers. The main part will also fire lasers. The tricky part is that the "hands" also block incoming fire. In Nemesis '90, the "arms" can be destroyed. It fires like Big Core MK-III when it got one core left.
