Clyde in the Caldera is the level in which you face Clyde. He shoots fireballs and regular fire at Pac-Man. Clyde's fire balls trail fire, his machine is impervious to Rev-Roll attacks, the four platforms can only be reached via Rev-Rolling, and the hitbox can be hard to find. Pac-Man will bounce off if he runs into Clyde while Rev Rolling, but when he lets his head down, he has to Butt-Bounce on the glass. Clyde was depicted as Blinky due to the Clyde/Blinky error.


At the first phase, Clyde's only attack is shooting fireballs at Pac-Man. The fireballs will leave fire on the ground that can also hurt the yellow hero. After a few rounds of doing so, he'll fly his machine down near one of the outer platforms. This is the Pac-Man's chance to butt-bounce on the glass and do damage. Pac-Man must do this twice to move onto the next phase.

In the second phase, Clyde will do what the first two previous bosses do, and circle around the main platform. But unlike the said previous bosses, Pac-Man can't use this way of movement to rev-roll into the boss and damage it, as it is immune to rev-rolls. After doing its circle, Clyde will try to roast Pac-Man with the fire coming out from the bottom of his machine by hovering over it around the main platform. He'll try to do the same if Pac-Man on the outer platform if Pac-Man escapes his first fire attack. After doing that, Clyde will again circle around the main platform, but the time, he goes lower. Pac-Man can damage him this way. Once he does twice, Cylde will move onto the next phase.


  • This boss fight is claimed by many players to be the hardest level in the game because of it's difficult to dodge attacks and strange hitbox.
  • This is the only ghost-like robot boss fight that doesn't have angled b-doings, nor does it have platforms for Pac-Man to walk on to access the outer platforms.
