Inky (known in Japan as Aosuke) is one of the four ghosts that chase Pac-Man
, Ms. Pac-Man
, and Pac-Man Jr.
around in the Pac-Man game series
. He was given the personality "Bashful" (also known in Japan as "Kimagure", meaning "fickle") due to his unpredictability. Sometimes he will move towards the player like Blinky
, sometimes he will try to ambush the player like Pinky
, and sometimes he will wander off like Clyde
. This is due to his "chase" mode programming, which not only requires the location and orientation of the player, but also the location of Blinky.
