* GoodBadBugs: It is possible to kill two enemies in a single shot and thus have a hit ratio of over 100%, up to 200% if you only make one-bullet double hits or don't fire anymore. [[AwesomeButImpractical Not that having a >100% ratio is any useful to scoring.]]

* GoodBadBugs: GoodBadBugs:
** There is a very small gap in the hitbox between your Dual Ship, so there's a slim chance that you can exploit it to allow an enemy missile to slip through without losing either of your ships, but this requires very lucky timing to pull off.

Added DiffLines:

* ComplacentGamingSyndrome: In the original game, world-class players will start a 2-player game and play on the player 2 side. This is because player 1's score counter is only 6 digits long and will roll scores over 999,990 back to 0, but player 2 has a 7-digit score counter.

** [[LoveItOrHateIt The jury is out]] on the [[NintendoHard maddeningly difficult]] ''Gaplus'', but the features it added (''your own'' TractorBeam that you can use to convert enemy fighters to your side) are pretty neat.

* AwesomeMusic: Galaga Arrangement, part of Namco Classics Collection Vol. 1, has a surprisingly incredible soundtrack. Particular mention goes to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWm1a4LzK6s Nebula Zone]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkVEfvra1Vc King Galaspark]].
* EvenBetterSequel: To VideoGame/{{Galaxian}}.
** Galaga '88 to the first Galaga, to those who actually played it.
* FirstInstallmentWins: Good luck finding someone who's at least heard of the sequels. Subverted in that this is actually the second installment, with Galaxian being the first.
* MostWonderfulSound: The special jingle that plays if you shoot down every enemy in a Challenging Stage.
