Several different ghosts have appeared throughout the franchise, aside from the ones in the main aforementioned group. The enemies in Pac-Man are known variously as " ghosts ", " goblins ", and " monsters ". In an interview, creator Toru Iwatani stated that he had designed each enemy with its own distinct personality in order to keep the game from becoming impossibly difficult or boring to play. He stated that the red enemy chases Pac-Man , and the pink and blue enemies try to position themselves in front of Pac-Man's mouth. In the Pac-Man cartoon, with the male Ghost Monsters wearing various styles of hats and partnered with a new ghost named Sue who was purple and wore earrings , the Ghost Monsters work for Mezmaron who assigns them the job of finding the Power Pellet Forest. Just as Pac-Man could "chomp" the Ghost Monsters to devour their "suits" after gulping down a power pellet and thus turning the Ghost Monsters blue — with their disembodied "eyes" floating back to Mezmaron's lair — the Ghost Monsters themselves, whenever Pac-Man hadn't been able to consume a power pellet for a time, could likewise "chomp" Pac-Man to defeat him.
Main article: Ms. Pac-Man game. Sue first appeared alongside Blinky , Pinky , and Inky in Ms. Her role is identical to Clyde's in the original Pac-Man , and she looks identical to him as well. She starts on the righthand side of the Ghost Home in the Maze's center, sitting next to Pinky. While her movements are often described as being "random", Sue's movements are deliberate. Sue actually does directly chase Ms.
You left out one ghost: Kinky, though I can't remember which game he's from. One of the later ones. He's really weird. If Pac-Man eats him, he turns into a power pellet. And Pac-Man can eat him at any time. But he can also merge with other ghosts into a big, worse ghost. You did pretty good!
The most notable ghosts are the four members of the Ghost Gang who have appeared throughout the series as both antagonists and protagonists. Despite ghosts often being cruel and mischievous, some have been shown to be 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 beings that dwell in Ghost Land and will sometimes travel to Pac-Land to cause havoc and mischief. Ghosts are 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.
