Terra Core, while in its asteroid shell.


The Terra Core is the first boss in Gradius Galaxies. It has almost the same attack pattern as a normal Big Core.

Attack Patterns

At first, Terra Core will be in an asteroid shell, though this can be blasted away. the core will slowly move up and down, firing two lasers from it's front. After firing six times, it will stop and shake, and summon five asteroids. After the shell is destroyed, the Terra Core will fire twice every time it stops moving. After it has no shell, it will never shoot asteroids.
