In terms of sheer ridiculousness I'd have to go with the ones from Space Bomber. The ridiculous Engrish dialogue between stages really sells it.

Castle Shikigami 3's first boss is the fourth stage boss from Shikigami 2 who's upset that she was demoted.

That's exactly what I said. Though her real life counterpart looked drastically different than her illusion form. How can she go from long haired blonde to blue-haired twintail?

The NES shmup of Gun-Nac is a wacky STG in it's own right. I bought it thinking that it was a used game but that wasn't the case as it was a brand new game, indeed, from the defunct "The Video Park" movie & video game rental business back in the early 1990s. Of course, the American Toys-R-Us stores sold brand new copies of the NES version of Gun-Nac on clearance for a mere $19.99 USD back in the early 1990s as well.

Hidden Gun-Nac Stage Select: If you set the BGM tune on the NES version of Gun-Nac to number 7 and highlight the stage number, you can choose your starting stage (including the very last stage if your heart so desires it). So be it.

I like how the NES version of Gun-Nac feels like a parody version of the classic PC Engine STG of Gunhed (aka Blazing Lazers in the USA with the TurboGrafx-16 console) -- it never takes itself seriously combined with that classic Compile infused gameplay and game mechanics.

PC Engine Fan X! ^_~

I do remember hearing something about the Yukari Horiguchi in the second game being a fake or illusion. Maybe the one in Castle Shikigami 2 is some kind of alter-ego of hers. But isn't the one in the third game an illusion too?

Well, I kind of do, but I won't lose sleep over it.
(Mind you I'm the one who was crazy enough to spearhead a fan translation for the first game that all of 80 people played...)
