* BettyAndVeronica: The Veronica to Pac's Archie and Cylindria's Betty.

to:

* BettyAndVeronica: The Veronica to Pac's Archie and Cylindria's Betty. Only difference is that Cylindria doesn't have a crush on Pac, not that Pinky even care to know.


* BewareTheSillyOnes/ BewareTheNiceOnes: Pac is a glutton with his head in the clouds and an almost naive temperament. Next thing you know, on a moment's notice, he's raining fire from the sky, pile-driving monsters in a steel body, freezing over an evil army, or taking out an apocalyptic threat by becoming a planet--all on a moment's notice.
** If the above is a bit much to read, just note that the ''entirety of the Netherworld'', after being free for the first time in years, ran back ''screaming in fear'' upon just ''seeing'' him.

* SuperStrength: While not as prominent as when under the effects of certain berries, Pac's strong enough to force a speeding vehicle to a halt with his bare hands. ...Well, he wears ConspicuousGloves, but you get the idea.
** In addition, he's shown ability to ''snap a lamp post from its base'' and swing around a ''ghost shark'' like a flail with little issue.
* SuperpowerLottery: And. How. With the berries of the Tree of Life, Pac can do virtually anything. Manipulate fire, ice, magnetism, become as stone, fly, breathe underwater, become gigantic, gain martial arts mastery, become a planet... Just as well, "Stand by Your Pac-Man" shows us that these powers can actually ''stack''.
** Somewhat subverted in that other Pac-Worlders can use the berries, but they regularly are less effective, they last far shorter, or something in their usage backfires.
