Galaga: Stop enemies from firing at you.
On the first level, wait until the enemy ships are in their proper formation. Shoot every last one except the one in the bottom-left corner. Now move your ship to the right corner. Let your enemy dive at you and go around until he doesn't fire during his pass. During the pass after not firing, shoot him down if he still isn't shooting in the next pass. If you do this correctly, the enemies in the rest of the levels will not fire at you for the rest of the game.

Double Shot Galaga Zap
Start Galaga, and when the bad guys fly on screen press A... wait a tenth of a second, and then press R. You will fire out two Zap Rays instead of one. This is much more effective while moving instead of staying still. You can do this with the double fighter as well.

Stop Enemies from Firing
On most revisions of Galaga, there's a trick that stops enemies from firing at your ship. In Stage 1, kill all aliens except the two bees in the bottom-left corner. Allow the bees to dive down and shoot at you, while dodging their shots. After around 15 minutes or so, the bees will continue to drop down, but they won't fire. Let them drop down another 5 or 6 times, then kill them. After all this, enemies will not shoot at you for the rest of the game.

Wait until one of the top ships(the green ones that take two shots to kill) comes down and fires off a tractor beam(the beam that can capture your ship). Let it capture your ship. Now, wait until it swoops down again with your ship behind it. Simply kill the head ship(the green one), and it will lose your ship. Your ship will then lock on to the side of your current ship, giving you two ships to play with at the same time! Now, be careful. Not only will both ships be firing at you after your ship gets captured, but if you accidently shoot your captured ship, you'll destroy it. Also note, this will cost you one life, but will definately make the Challenging Stages, and perhaps the game itself, a little easier to play.
Note: This works in all non-bootleg/hack versions of Galaga, as well as most of the sequels and Arranged Mode in Namco Classic Collection Vol. 1.
