Contra is the name given to those elite warriors with an indomitable spirit and superior guerrilla tactics. It was created by the Earth Federation Government and is composed of the military's best super soldiers. Their most renowned members are Bill Rizer and Lance Bean.
Contra's mission is the defense of Earth against any who pursue its conquest, mainly the Red Falcon. Their most persistent foe is Red Falcon's leader, Emperor Demon Gava. Contra has on numerous occasions foiled the ambitions of the extraterrestrial conqueror, but his persistence seemingly knows no end.
