Str2 unused ashika b.png

The Ashika-β (アシカーβ) is a scrapped enemy machine from Strider 2. It was planned to appear during the 3rd stage, Antarctica Research Lab[1]. The enemy's name is based on "ashika" (葦鹿), the Japanese word for sea lion.

The Ashika-β is a small machine in the shape of a sea lion. This machine was a simple enemy that'd have attacked Hiryu in groups: They'd have appeared lined up in pairs, and using their detachable top as a spring they'd bounce a round, ball-like bomb toward Hiryu. The Ashika-β also sports tank wheels at the bottom, so it's presumed it'd also have been able to move on its own.[1]
