Boss Galaga (ボス・ギャラガ) is an enemy from the game Galaga. In Galaga, it uses a tractor beam to take one of the player's ships and turns it into an enemy ship.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

The Boss Galaga item, when thrown, will circle around a few times before hovering in the air. It will then swoop down on a select a character, and use its tractor beams to "abduct" the fighter and carry them away to the upper blast line. It will also deal 1% damage to the abductee, in order to make the kill count for the player who threw it. It can be shot down, however. [1] If you get caught, you can escape it by Button mashing.
