Red Pod - Increases bottom weapon bar by one.

Yellow Bell - gives 500 points, keep grabbing them to get more points. (2nd 
bell worth 1000, then 2500, then 5000, and finally 10000 pts!)

Blue Bell - Bomb. You can have up to 3.

Red Bell - KIKU Beam. Shoots out a vertical laser to protect you from enemies 
and projectiles.

Green Bell - Big. Turns you into a giant and makes you invincible for a 
limited time. You can't grab bells while in this mode.

Purple Bell - Turns enemies into Pods or Bells.

White Bell - Summons Alex!

The Lustful Pac-Man-like Alex - Each player can have his/her own Alex:

Grab more white bells to increase his HP and abilities. Grab Yellow to 
recover his lost HP. Just don't let him fight female enemies ;)

3. Options
After pressing start on the anime sequence, you'll be at the title screen:

I.   1P start
II.  2P start
III. Options
IV. (Empty Space)

I. 1p Start
Start a one player game!

Auto - Game chooses weapons for you (including speed-ups), but you can start 
in the same place where you died and you can get 5 bells.

Auto-Manual - Game gives you the best weapons, but you can choose your own 
(ie. Game gives you Micheal's Round Shot, but you want the Wave Laser 
instead.) When you die, you start close to where you died.

Manual - You choose your own weapons, but when you die you must start near 
where you died.

II. 2p Start
Unlike the Super Famicom Parodius games, 2 players MUST play at the same time 

The 2 player mode has many different things than the one-player mode:

- If 2 players are playing at the same time, and one or both people choose 
auto-manual or manual, you can start at the same place where you died and 
you'll still be able to choose your weapons.

- When the 2 players get close to each other, they can shoot out a various 
weapon. Consult the instructions for the chart on page 19.

N - Wave - Shoot out waves in 8 directions (depends on where the players are 
on the screen)
H - Heart - A homing weapon
X - Spark - Goes straight ahead
SP - Wave 2 - Homes in on enemies
? - Coins - Shoots out smily coins

III. Options
Choose difficulty level, stereo or mono, etc...

IV. (Empty Space)
? ;)

4. Areas w/ tips on completing the missions
The areas on Sexy Parodius are like on the Darius series. Once you complete 
or do not complete a mission, you will go to a different level...

World 1 - Down on the Farm

It seems a giant corn-on-the-cob is picking on the chickens! Help them!

Think you finished the game? Check out the spoilers section if you dare...

5. Bosses
(Note: If you wait a long time, the boss will leave, but if you completed 
your mission, it won't matter. The only one it will matter on is the 1st 
boss, Corn Chiwa.)

World 1 - 
Corn Chiwa (Konichiwa. Get it?)

Your first battle is a fight with a corn-on-the-cob! Start by staying on the 
left side of the screen and blast him and the popcorn he shoots. Soon, he 
will get off the ground, but stay right where you are, then soon he will go 
back to his original position. After that, fire away!

World 2 -
Toilet Penguin

During the battle, stay to the far left, shooting the bubbles as they 
approach, and aim for the penguin's navel. If you need more coins, grab as 
many as possible from the bubbles, but don't take too long, or the boss will 
leave!  Once you defeat him, his helmet will drop a group of coins worth 
about 40. Grab them!

World 3A -

She's back, and bigger than before! Stay to the far left, aiming for her eye. 
After she throws 3 of her 2-way petrify beams that home in on you, she will 
summon 4 mice. Kill them if you need them for your total. Also, if you get 
turned to stone, make sure her snakes projectiles aren't coming after you!

World 3B -
Egg-Shaped Ginsu Lady

Stay to the far left, and when she throws her knives, go slightly right, if 
one is aiming for you. When she throws her head, stay to the far bottom-left. 
Once in a while she will jumpkick towards you. When this happens, head right, 
then above and back to the left. If she throws her head and it goes into the 
foreground, then background, get above and behind her!

World 4A -
Raccoon with a Giant... Well... There's no polite way to explain it...

When the battle begins, he will run to the left, and wrap around to the right 
side of the screen. Shoot him in the face, and when he summons rocks, hit him 
in the obvious place :) Once in awhile, he will walk to the left and wrap 
around to the right side of the screen, so watch out for this. Once in a rare 
while he may turn into a female raccoon! I've personally only seen this once, 
and I'm not sure how to trigger it!

World 4B -

The only time you can hit the penguin is when he is on the far right side of 
the screen or at the top. Once in a while he will drop out boxes, shoot them 
for women or birds that leave power-ups behind (if you kill all 3). When the 
penguin's machine is at the very top of the screen, make sure you are near 
the bottom to block his projectiles (same when he is moving up and down on 
the right side of the screen). After you defeat him, he will pull out a 
machine gun. Just stay away until he disappears.

World 5 -
Dreamcast Symbol

No, that's not what it is. it's a Peppermint with a bad attitude! Start by 
shooting it while staying near it, and when it is about halfway dead, the 
pieces of candy near it will go in 4 directions, leaving coins. Grab the 
coins, but watch out when the candy goes back to its normal position!

World * -
Parade of Bosses


Shoot him, while moving around the screen, grabbing the many options he 
throws at you.


Shoot at his navel, and don't let the background bug you!


Worry about the boss, not the background! Move up and down, avoiding his 
feathers and beam, and shoot him repeatedly in the face. If you are facing 
the parade of bosses earlier in the game (and if you are full-powered), then 
his beams will be gigantic, and tough to avoid!


Kill at least 4 of the lips, then a giant lip will form with the remaining 
ones! Shoot at it, while moving around the screen, wathcing out for the 


She has the properties of the previous 4 bosses! Stay near the left, but 
watch out when the angels she throws out goes into the "lips" phase!

World 6 -
Nice Lady

Oh no! The hardest boss in the game! Good Luck! ;)

weapons, but it can only be done once per stage.

"OH!" Option (which takes away all your weapons.)

After "defeating" the final boss, and after you watch the closing credits, 
you get to go through a special stage!!!
Better yet, defeat it and you can choose it from the main menu, even after 
turning your system off (depends on if your system has a WORKING battery in 
it! (Mine doesn't!)) The background on the option menu also changes!
