Pac-Man

Pac-Man

A guest character courtesy of Bandai Namco, Pac-Man has joined the battle! The original Pac-Man game was an incredibly simplistic title, consisting of gobbling pellets throughout a maze and avoiding ghosts, all while trying to earn the highest score possible. Pac-Man went through a change in design in 1984 when a new game called Pac-Land released in the arcades. This game was a sidescroller, deviating quite a bit from the original arcade game's gameplay.

Pac-Man’s look in Smash is based off of his Pac-Land design. Pac-Man fights with a combination of kicks, punches, and retro moves that call back to his origins as well as other Bandai Namco games. You can say that he has several tricks of his glove. Where'd he pull that fire hydrant from? We may never know.

Pac-Man’s taunts are a callback to retro Namco games such as Galaga, Dig-Dug, and Xevious.
Charge up his Bonus Fruit move to scroll through the classic bonus items. Each item has a different effect when thrown.
Create a trail of pellets with Power Pellet by holding the Special Attack button and directing with the Control Stick, then release to gobble away.
Bring out the Fire Hydrant to repel enemies with water, or kick it away to deal damage.
For his Final Smash, Super Pac-Man, he eats a Power Pellet and Super Pellet to transform into a giant 2-D version of himself, moving in four possible directions as controlled by the player to gobble up enemies.

 - Pac-Man Neutral Special - Sakurai said:  «Pac-Man's standard special move, Bonus Fruit. As you charge this move, the bonuses will change, and all of them have different characteristics and movement patterns when thrown. The bonuses cycle in the same order as in the original game, and the charge-up period doubles once you cycle beyond the orange.» 19.Jun.2014
