The Core Cannon is the main weapon in the Space Invaders franchise used to destroy the Invaders. Not much is known about it, but Get Even expanded upon its story, saying that it was created as a last resort against the Aliens. Although it was successful, it quickly started an arms race that led to major wars among humanity.

In Infinity Gene, the Cannon is now more of a ship in itself with various different forms.
