The Capsule Monster Cappuccino (カプセル怪獣カプチーノ Kapuseru Kaijū Kapuchīno?) is a recurring boss in the Parodius series.


His shape is that of a big Power Capsule, like a big pillow bubble with a coin. It is also a parody of the Bubble Eye from Gradius III.

Attack patterns

Gokujō Parodius!

Cappuccino has almost no attacks except for ramming. It shoots lots of power ups to help you, so it is advised to stay where the power ups are heading. If you take too long to kill Cappuccino, it flies off into space. If you defeat him, though, it flies away, but fails as it crashes into a planet, a crater is seen shaped like the boss as it falls. Be careful, though! Some of the power ups are spiked, and kill on touch.

Sexy Parodius

Capsule Monster Cappuccino has learned a new move since his defeat. He will still fire power ups but there are also spikes mixed in with them, which can hard to see. On higher difficulties, he'll have more spikes which will make collecting power ups much harder.



  • The Capsule Monster Cappuccino also appears in Jikkyō Oshaberi Parodius. In this game, it is much more smaller and has a different purpose; it acts as a power meter randomizer if the player touches it.
