  • Gradius (PC Engine) – Pausing the game and then entering the code III activates full options, missile, and shield.
  • Life Force (NES) – Enter the code at the title screen for 30 lives. The code does not work in the Famicom version of the game.

  • Nemesis (GB) – Pausing the game and entering the code will give the player full options.
  • Gradius III (Super Famicom/SNES) – Normally entering the code while paused activates all powerups, but the player's ship is instantly destroyed upon unpausing. The player must enter the code by substituting and on the d-pad with the L and R shoulder buttons to apply the power-ups without penalty.
  • Gradius III (PS2) – Pausing the game and then entering × will activate all power-ups and the Laser weapon. Alternately, pressing and in place of × and will activate the Double weapon with the other power-ups.

  • Parodius! From Myth to Laughter (Super Famicom/SNES) – Pausing the game and then entering the code destroys the player upon resuming. However, entering BBXXAYAY and resuming will fully power up the player. The second code uses the same finger-movements when the SNES controller is held upside-down.

  • Gradius Gaiden (PS) – Pausing the game then entering the code × will result in a power up.

Contra series[edit]

  • Contra (NES) – Entering the code at the title screen gives the player 30 lives. If the two-player option is picked using the Select button before or after entering the code, both players will have 30 lives. In the Japanese version, the 30 lives code can be used alongside a stage select code exclusive to that version. The codes were removed from the special Contra 4 version.
  • Super C (NES) – Entering the code(ABStart) before the title screen appears, gives the player 10 lives in US version of the game while in Japanese version the code gives 30 lives. If the two-player option is picked using the Select button before or after entering the code, both players will have 10 lives. This is different than the original game which offered 30 lives to a player. The codes were not included from the special Contra 4 version. To access sound mode in Japanese/US version enter the code Hold(AB) and press Start.For stage select in Japanese version At the title screen, press and hold on the crosspad, while holding it press Start and immediately hold Select.

  • Neo Contra (PS2) – Same as Contra: Shattered Soldier
  • Contra 4 (DS) – Entering the code during play in the pause menu will power-up whatever weapons the player is currently carrying. The code can only be entered once per stage, as inputting it a second time will kill off the player, taking away a life. This code has no effect on the Easy setting, where all the weapons picked by the player are upgraded by default. The codes were removed from the unlockable emulated bonus versions of NES Contra and NES Super C due to illegal reasons.
  • Hard Corps Uprising (Xbox 360, PS3) Before starting the first stage, enter the code when the loading screen is shown (a sound will confirm it) and the usual background music will be replaced with the Jungle theme from the original Contra. Entering the code at the title screen with L3 and R3 as the button presses will unlock a 30 lives powerup for purchase in Rising Mode.
  • Super Contra (Xbox Live Arcade) Enter the code to receive unlimited lives (the life counter will remain at 4) and the most powerful gun in the game (collecting gun powerups will also not affect the weapon used).

The Probotector versions of the games also allow use of the code.

Castlevania series[edit]

  • Akumajō Special: Boku Dracula-kun (Family Computer) – Entering the code at the title screen will display a black screen with the text "There's nothing here!" in Japanese. In the unofficial translation hack of the game, this was reworded as "Sorry, that won't work!".

  • Castlevania Chronicles (PS) – Entering X on the title screen will take the player to a hidden options menu that allows them to adjust the "system time" and turn on-off the transparency of the status bar in Original mode.

  • Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance (GBA) – Entering the code when the Konami logo appears and choose Boss Rush to play as the original Simon Belmont, with the music and animations from the original Castlevania for NES. While significantly harder due to the limited movement of Simon Belmont, the player can do more damage with this character and collect far more hearts to fuel subweapon use against the bosses than the other two characters. Simon is also limited to special weapons from the first game: Holy Water, Knife, Axe, and Cross. (Additionally, the Holy Water weapon gives the "static flame" from the original Castlevania, not the moving flame from when Juste uses it.)
  • Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (Xbox 360, PS3) – Entering it at the Load Screen of a Level (With Analog Sticks) and the player gets a Cheat Menu at the Extras Point.
