Uros (ウロス Urosu?) is a recurring enemy in the Gradius series.


It is an enemy introduced in Gradius, the fourth to be encountered in the Volcano stage, and the first to be found on terrain.

Attack patterns

Uros hover along the top or bottom terrain. The pod at the top of the Uros will occasionally open up and fire a bullet at the Vic Viper. One can utilize Missiles to destroy Uros hovering on the bottom terrain, though you have to go and shoot a Uros yourself if it appears on the top terrain. Red Uros are somewhat uncommon, but, as always, will drop a capsule after it is destroyed.
