Moai Orb is the third boss in Gradius ReBirth.

Attack patterns

The boss will unleash a flurry of lasers, with little gaps to slip through. Afterward, the orb will detach and start to bounce around the area, creating thunderbolts as it does so. Moai heads will attack along with the orb. The orb will then return to the forehead of the giant moai head, repeating this process until it is destroyed.

The boss's weak spot is precisely this red orb. Once defeated, the boss will scream while exploding and falling into space.


Overall, this boss isn't difficult as long as you have a few Multiples when you fight it. It's recommended to have Missiles and two Speed upgrades.
