 Enemy Fighter
Shoot down a red captured Fighter!

Only do this if you have at least 2 fighters/lives left. Allow your fighter to get captured in the tractor beam formed by Boss Galaga, then with your next fighter, shoot the captured one. Don’t shoot Boss Galaga as that will release your fighter.

Only do this if you have at least 2 fighters/lives left. Allow your fighter to get captured in the tractor beam formed by Boss Galaga, then shoot Boss Galaga (takes 2 hits to kill) to release your fighter. Be careful not to shoot your fighter instead. Killing Boss Galaga and freeing your fighter will pair up your 2 fighters. Highly recommended you do this often, especially for the Challenge Stages.
