Full Name
Mechanical tentacles, fire propulsors, a huge cannon on it's front

The Kraken is the last boss from Metal Slug 7/XX.


The Kraken is found in the last mission where it is seen at the background resting on a rock while you battle eight of his mechanical tentacles. The tentacles will emerge from the lava and try to smash you. They can also fire electric balls or create lavaballs from the lava. They are fought one by one. When all the tentacles are destroyed, the head which is controlled by Morden will battle you. Kraken has many attacks. It can dive under lava and produce sensor mine to destroy the scrap metals which you stand on. Then it will emerge directly beneath you to throw you into the lava. It also can fires a shell from its giant cannon. The shell is a bigger version of the Huge Hermit shells that can bounce off the scrap metals.The third attack is to drop magma boulder from the bottom. Kraken can also summon grenades similar to the ones you use when you are going to space in Metal Slug 3 and toss them to you. The last attack is to drop giant barrel similar to oversize version of grenades you use when you are going to space. It will also summon pods for further backup.


  • The Kraken is very similar to the fourth boss from the game In The Hunt, by the same developers.
  • When you destroy the time portal (in the final mission) you can see the shape of the Kraken and Morden jumping into it.
  • Kraken's tentacle sprite is actually a recolored version of Worm Mecha sprite.
