Kinky (known in Japan as "Kinzo") is a character in Pac-Man Arrangement, one of the games originally included in the 1996 arcade-exclusive compilation title Namco Classic Collection Vol. 2. He was given the personality "Hinekure" in the Japanese version, which roughly translates to "perverse" or "contrary". Unlike the other four ghosts (Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde), Kinky will always flee from Pac-Man because he is constantly in a vulnerable "blue" state while Pac-Man is inside the maze; as a result of his permanent vulnerability, Kinky can never harm Pac-Man directly. His natural golden color is only visible when Pac-Man loses a life or is otherwise absent from the maze area. Eating Kinky grants Pac-Man the effects of a Power Pellet, which are also gold-colored in Arrangement. Kinky is always the last ghost to leave the monster box at the beginning of a new stage.

In lieu of attacking Pac-Man, Kinky acts purely as support for the other four ghosts. He can combine with another ghost to grant them special abilities, which vary depending upon the ghost:

  • Blinky grows a pair of bull horns and can perform a charging attack that allows him to quickly dash through horizontal passages.
  • Pinky grows a pair of rabbit ears and gains the ability to leap across the maze in a single jump. Her landing point is marked by a glowing circular target for a few seconds before she jumps.
  • Inky dons a pair of sunglasses and can periodically produce a single clone of himself that mirrors his movements through the maze. The clone disappears when Pac-Man eats a Power Pellet, or if Pac-Man smashes through the clone with a Dash Arrow.
  • Clyde grows to an immense size and gains the ability to produce extra Pac-Dots in previously-cleared portions of the maze, slowing Pac-Man's progress towards completing a stage.
