You’ve known him variously as Shadow, Akabei, and of course, Blinky – the leader of the original Pac-Man ghosts squad (Pinky, Inky, and Clyde) who persists adamantly to chasing Pac-Man through the dotted maze. Blinky is the only monster in the Pac-Man arcade game that will always directly target our yellow-friend (hence the nickname, “Shadow”, because he always shadows Pac-Man).
- Blinky has a daughter named Yum-Yum.
- Blinky’s accelerated mode (triggered after a ever-diminishing number of dots are eaten), is known as “Cruise Elroy”.
- When in “scatter mode”, Blinky typically occupies the top, right-hand part of the screen.
- Originally, the Namco president dictated that all ghosts be colored red. The development team voted and nobody chose the all-red option. The Namco President gave in and allowed the well-known “colorful” array of Pac-Man ghosts.
- Blinky has appeared in more than a half-dozen arcade games and more than a dozen animated series and films including Wreck-It Ralph and Mario Kart.
