The Infected Statue is the boss of stage 1 in Gradius: The Interstellar Assault.


It has two heads but you must destroy the head on the bottom and then destroy the top head in order to defeat this boss.

Attack patterns

Infected Statue fires bullets patterns from the bottom head. Players have to destroy the bottom head first. After that, the top head rips off, and explodes to reveal a mouth like monster. It roars and attaches itself to where the bottom head was. Now, along with the bullet pattern, it will screech and bite at you. After you destroy that, the top of the statue crumbles, and you fly through the hole on be captured by the Coreship.
