Gradius Deluxe Pack (グラディウス DELUXE PACK) is a compilation of both Gradius and Gradius II - two arcade shoot-'em-ups developed and published by Konami. It remains to this day the only Gradius release on a Sega system (in this case, the Sega Saturn), though there have been several Parodius games (which parody Gradius) and Salamander Deluxe Pack Plus (a Gradius spin-off) also saw a release on the Saturn. The game sadly never left Japan.

The games are identical to their arcade counterparts, bar a few touch-ups.

Games included
