* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: ''Pac-Man 2'' gives you many ways to abuse the main character and others.
* VideoGameRemake: ''Pac-Man Arrangement'' in ''Namco Classics Collection Volume 2'' featured two-player co-op play, new power-ups, new stage elements, such as dash arrows and jump panels, and introduced a fifth ghost that could give the four other ghosts [[SuperEmpowering special powers]]. This game, in turn, got remade again for ''Namco Museum Battle Collection'', and the original is available in ''Pac-Man Collection'' for the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance.

* FollowTheLeader: Pretty much every game console and home computer in the Second Generation Of Video Games had either an adaptation of this game available or some maze game that resembled ''Pac-Man''. Magnavox's ''K.C. Munchkin'' for the Odyssey 2, however, was deemed so close to the original that it was pulled from the market.



* MarketBasedTitle: ''Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures'' is called ''Hello! Pac-Man'' in Japan.



* NamesTheSame: The name ''Pac-Man Arrangement'' can refer to one of two games: The original that was released in ''Namco Classics Collection Vol. 2'' and the second alliteration in 2005 that first appeared in ''Namco Museum Battle Collection'', also known as ''Pac-Man Remix'' in certain re-releases.

The game depicts an abstract round yellow character vaguely reminiscent of a head with a mouth opening and closing [[ExtremeOmnivore to gobble up nearby objects]]. The player must steer the character around a maze and "eat" all of the dots and four special [[PowerUpFood power pellets]] (originally "energizers"). Four ghosts (originally [[http://www.2600connection.com/articles/pac-man_monsters_ghosts/pac-man_monsters_ghosts.html "monsters"]]) pursue the character, and their touch is fatal unless Pac-Man recently ate a power pellet.

The game was originally released in Japan as "Puck-Man". It was changed for the North American release when marketing noticed how easy and tempting it would be to blot out a bit of the P to [[PrecisionFStrike undesirably retitle]] the game. Either version of the name is based on the Japanese sound "paku-paku", for eating.
