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



1 Answer 1


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] Jun 25, 2019 at 15:49

    @Mindwin The original ship was less stylized, but it definitely was inspired by it.

    Hey, move the ship to the left. You want it captured by that blue shield!
