The main Ghosts of the Pac-Man series: Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde
|Homeland||Ghost Land, Spectral Realm|
|Allies or Henchmen||Toc-Man|
Ghosts (モンスター), such as the Ghost Gang are the main rivals of Pac-Man. Some ghosts, such as Miru are nice, but most have rejoiced in antagonizing Pac-Man. They have to be careful though, because Pac-Man has a chance of swallowing them whole, usually when a Power Pellet is obtained. They are spectral-like beings that dwell in Ghost Land and sometimes the Ghost Gang and other ghosts come to Pac-Land to cause havoc.
The ghosts seem to be carnivores and do not appear to be related to any thing else seen in Pac-Land. Many scenes in the games cut scenes or the Pac-Man animated T.V. show suggests that they are not actually ghosts (which may be the explanation for them being called "The Ghost Monsters"), but creatures made of flesh makes Pac-People almost like meat-eating creatures. In one intermission in the original Pac-Man game, a portion of Blinky's hide is caught on a nail, revealing a flesh colored leg. This concept has been pretty much forgotten and Ghosts are now generally regarded to be just that, ghosts.
Ghosts are limited by not being able to turn unless they reach an intersection. Each ghost will behave differently once it has reached an intersection. Some will move randomly, while others focus on chasing Pac-Man or ambushing him. Other times, the ghosts will revert to 'scatter mode' where they try to spread themselves among the four corners of the maze.
The ghosts are the antagonists in most of the Pac-Man games. Their weakness is the Power Pellets, which can be eaten by Pac-Man, Ms. Pac, or Jr. Pac. When eaten, it causes them to turn blue, a state where they are vulnerable to being eaten. Once eaten, their empty bodies will return to a chamber in the center of the maze where Pac-Man has no access and return to their original colors to continue chasing him. Throughout the series, the roles and names of Blinky and Clyde are often mixed up. In the Hanna Barbera series for example, Clyde is the leader when Blinky used to be the head ghost in the past. And in Pac-Man World 3, Clyde is red, yet maintains his tough attitude.
