Gyaraga (Also called Galaga) is the name of the protagonist ship that appears in Galaga and some of the game's successors. It is the ship that destroys the Galaga army and is the futuristic Earth's mechanical guardian.
In the original Galaga, the Gyaraga appears as a white bomber. When captured, it turns red. In Gaplus, the Gyaraga keeps the same design, but arrives in three pieces. In Galaga '88, the Gyraga has a bigger fuselage. It moves faster than the Galaxip, shooting more bullets at a time. In Namco Museum DS, the X button is a rapid fire button. Its dual form is simply two Gyaragas bolted together, while a triple fighter is a huge model of the ship, shooting three different bullets.
