What is this arcade character from? (this is from the Pixels movie)



This is one of the red-winged moth-looking enemies from Galaga.

Somewhat fittingly, the logo for Arqade, the spaceship, is also from Galaga.

    The ship in the Arqade.SE is inspired by Galaga. I am pretty sure the ship's design for the game is copyrighted. Unless you have a source that the stack indeed used it. [citation needed] – Mindwin Jun 25 '19 at 15:49

    @Mindwin The original ship was less stylized, but it definitely was inspired by it. – Nzall Jun 26 '19 at 14:55

    Hey, move the ship to the left. You want it captured by that blue shield! – LarsTech Jun 27 '19 at 19:34
