Kenny 1 & 2 (兄弟ロボ ケニ1号&2号 Kyoudai Robo Keni Ichigou & Nigou?, lit. "Brothers Robo Kenny 1 & 2") are a pair of minibosses in the Contra series. They are two robot brothers with mounted machine guns for arms.


Encountered in the Factory Zone, right before the Big Fuzz boss fight; one fashions a red color scheme and the other a blue one. They hop around and attack the player with gunfire and tackles, and they can also hang from the ceiling and walls. After sustaining enough damage, their lower body busts off and the remaining upper half scurries and jumps around until destroyed.

A good strategy to defeat them is staying on the walls and ceiling while firing constantly at them.

They make a reappearance in C: The Contra Adventure, reprising their role as minibosses preceding the Big Fuzz boss fight, although with a few different attacks.




  • Kenny 1 & 2 are based on Snatchers, the main enemies from Konami's 1988 video game Snatcher, originally released for the PC-8801 and MSX2 Japanese computers.
    • Snatchers are in turn based on the T-800 cybernetic organism from the Terminator franchise. This reference is further carried by how they keep going after getting their legs taken out.
