Contra (魂斗羅 Kontora?) is a video game series produced by Konami composed primarily of run-and-gun style platformer games. The series debuted in 1987 as a coin-operated arcade game simply titled Contra, which was followed by the release of Super Contra in 1988 and several sequels produced for various home platforms. Many of the early games were known as Probotector in Europe, replacing the Human soldiers in the original games with robots.

The in-universe use of the term "Contra" is first explained within the Japanese instruction card of the arcade version of Contra, and reiterated in most games, as "a title awarded to a superior soldier possessing almost super human drive and ability, while excelling in guerrilla tactics."
