Contra

Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A. Whereas the famous Konami code was actually first used in the 1986 release of Gradius.

Ninja Gaiden

God Hand

God hand commercial failure means that many great ideas remain to be stolen.

NARC

The Simpsons 

Several arcade beat-em-ups can happen at this location - TMNT, X-Men.
