Hatches (ハッチ Hatchi?) are recurring enemies in the Gradius and Parodius series.


Hatches are the most common enemies in the series, appearing in pretty much every game under a different visual. There are many different variations of Hatches, although all do the same thing: launch out fighter ships (Gradius) or enemies (Parodius), with the only change being their appearance.
