A Gamyga (ギャムギャ, Ghamgha) is one of the members of the Subspace Army, and first appears in the Path to the Ruins level. A Gamyga has a mask and four Gamyga bases beneath it for support. It has one attack, in which it closes its eyes and shoots three multi-color lasers homing the player's direction, dealing severe knockback, though it can still be reflected or absorbed by things such as PSI Magnet or Oil Panic. Gamyga Bases have two eyes on them with two small arms. The arms do not do any damage to characters, despite providing support for the Gamyga mask.
If the player destroys the Gamyga Mask directly, all of the Gamyga Bases will be destroyed along with it.
On lower difficulties, it is easy to destroy the bases and then attack Gamyga itself. However, at higher difficulties, it becomes harder to do so with Gamyga firing its lasers immediately upon springing up. Gamyga is temporarily stunned when the player attacks its head, so focus on the head and prevent it from getting a chance to attack. At higher difficulties, the flinch resistance becomes higher and higher. Falcon Punch, Warlock Punch, Judge (only on 9) and a fully charged Oil Panic can destroy all the bases in one attack. A trophy stand thrown at one of its bases will disappear no matter how much HP the base has.
There is a glitch that occasionally happens when attacking many parts of the Gamyga at once. Sometimes, the player will destroy every part of the Gamyga, but the bottom base will be left on the ground, still wiggling, as though ready to attack the player (though it is unable, for the mask is the only part that attacks).
