Villain Overview

The Ghosts are the main antagonists of the Pac-Man franchise.

History[]

In the original Pac-Man, the Ghosts chase Pac-Man around a maze to keep him from eating all of the dots. It was the player's objective to avoid the ghosts and collect all of the dots.

Power Pellets are the ghosts' ultimate weakness. When Pac-Man eats one, the ghosts turn blue, and Pac-Man can eat them.

  • One Ghost eaten - 200 pts.
  • Two Ghosts eaten - 400 pts.
  • Three Ghosts eaten - 800 pts.
  • All Four Ghosts eaten - 1600 pts.

In the original Pac-Man, there were four ghosts (referred to as the Ghost Gang), each member having their own unique personalities, more members have appeared in later media with their own personalities as well:

  • Blinky - Red, he is the most aggressive of the ghosts as he chases Pac-Man relentlessly and is the leader of the Ghost Gang in most media.
  • Pinky - Pink, she is deceptive as she strategically ambushes Pac-Man from the front. She was the overarching antagonist of Pac N Roll as she came up with the plan to free Golvis in the first place.
  • Inky - Cyan, he's friends with Blinky as the two work together to scare Pac-Man into making the wrong move. He and Clyde were the secondary antagonists of Pac-Man Allstars.
  • Clyde (original sprites were reused for Sue in Ms. Pac-Man and Tim in Jr. Pac-Man) - Orange, he's not very smart and flees if Pac-Man gets too close. Ironically, Clyde was the secondary antagonist of the Hannah-Barbera cartoons since he led the Ghost gang whenever Mezmeron wasnt present and had Blinky's personality while the Pac-Man World trilogy swapped his and Blinky's colors and personalities and both he and Inky were the secondary antagonists of Pac-Man Allstars.
  • Sue (reuses Clyde's sprites for Ms. Pac-Man, later appearences made her purple)
  • Tim (like Sue, he reuses Clyde's sprites for Pac-Man Jr.)
  • Orson (light grey) - Leader of the Ghost Gang on the original Pac-Man World and its remake.

In the Pac-Man cartoon series from 1982 to 1984, the Ghost Gang work for Mezmeron and help him try to find the Power Pellet Forest and often call Pac-Man names such as "Pac-Fink".

In the TV series Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, the Ghost Gang work for Lord Betrayus but secretly they help Pac-Man foil Betrayus' plans and hopefully get their bodies back.

Biology[]

In the older games and the original 80's cartoon, the Ghosts were originally portrayed as monsters (some can wield magic) and are considered tangible. However, they had a few ghostly traits such as being able to levitate.

In the Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures animated series and games, the Ghosts are portrayed as spectral ectoplasmic entities with the common ghostly traits of being semi-intangible, being able to levitate, and can leave trails of ectoplasm on living beings and the majority of them are former Pac-People.

In most of their portrayals, the most consistent thing about the ghosts' morphology is their true form, that being disembodied eyes that control ghostlike bodies that can only be destroyed by their natural predators and rivals, the Pac People.

Other Media[]

Wreck-It Ralph[]

The Ghost Gang appears as supporting characters in Disney's 2012 film Wreck-It-Ralph. While Blinky, Inky, and Pinky can be seen in Game Central Station, Clyde leads the Bad-Anon support group in the Pac-Man game consisting of iconic villains including Dr. Eggman, M. Bison, and Bowser. Clyde is also one of the villains to react when Ralph reveals he does not want to be a bad guy anymore, by turning blue. When Ralph laments how he gets no respect from the others in his game, Clyde suggests that he will just have to accept who he is.

The Ghost Gang makes a cameo in the 2018 sequel Ralph Breaks the Internet.

Super Smash Bros.[]

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS[]

A playable fighter, Pac-Man will summon the ghosts when using a smash attack: Blinky for his side smash, Pinky for his up smash, and Inky and Clyde for his down smash.

The Ghost Gang also appears as an Assist Trophy. When summoned, they wander around the stage as if it was a maze, dealing damage to fighters when collided with. After a few seconds, their movement becomes faster until they wander off. Each Ghost moves similar to the arcade games: Blinky takes the shortest route to reach the enemy, Pinky tries to move in front, Inky moves from behind, and Clyde moves randomly.

In the 3DS version, the Ghosts are hazards for the Pac-Maze stage. They randomly move about the lanes, damaging fighters when contacted. Grabbing a Power Pellet turns the Ghosts blue, and touching them will temporarily bring them out of the battlefield.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[]

The Ghost Gang returns as an Assist Trophy, reacting just as they did in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. The only difference is that they can be defeated by taking enough hits. They will telegraph their defeat by turning blue before fleeing.

The Ghosts also appear as an advanced primary shield-type spirit. Their spirit battle is against a red Kirby (Blinky), Jigglypuff (Pinky), Squirtle (Inky), and Pac-Man (Clyde) on the Battlefield form of Pac-Land. The Ghost Assist Trophy can also be summoned at random. A blue Ghost named TURN-TO-BLUE also appears as a novice support spirit, which grants the fighter an increase to their speed at the cost of starting the battle at 30% damage. Its spirit battle is a timed battle against four Mr. Game & Watch on the Wrecking Crew stage who tend to avoid conflict.

Just Dance[]

Blinky, Pinky, and Inky appear as P2, P3, and P4 in the Just Dance 2019 routine, which shares its name with the series. Pac-Man appears in that routine as P1.

Fortnite[]

While not appearing as a skin, the four classic ghosts appear in two crossover cosmetics, in the "PAC-MAN" back bling (appearing as style variations for the default Pac-Man sprite) and cameoing in the "PAC-Brained" emote.

Fall Guys[]

In Fall Guys, a costume of a generic ghost (sharing their appearance mostly with Blinky's design in the Pac-World series) was added to the game as part of its fourth free-to-play season, being one of two Pac-Man-themed costumes currently in the game.

Trivia[]

  • The Pinky in the Hanna-Barbera cartoon may be a different Pinky, since he and the original (who is a female) are of opposite sexes.
  • Despite the modern viewpoint of Pac-Man's antagonists being spectral beings, this wasn't the original intent of Namco, but rather a result of their appearance making western audiences believe them to be ghosts. In fact, the original Pac-Man only refers to the creatures as generic monsters (with the original Japanese version using the term "Obake", a type of yokai usually equated to goblins), with their cloak-like body merely serving as a sheet covering their true body, being a pink, worm-like being with legs. The term "Ghosts" was actually first applied in the Atari 2600 port of the game.
