Clyde (Japanese: オトボケOtoboke) is one of the four main ghosts in the Pac-Man series. Of the other 3 ghosts, Inky is shown to be his closest friend. While the other three ghosts are off chasing Pac-Man, Clyde will be off doing his own thing. After an error in Pac-Man World 2, describing Blinky as orange and Clyde as Red, all other World series games place Clyde as the red ghost and elevate him to the rank of leader of the ghost gang. This is nothing more than an error that was forced into being reused. Namco aside from the World series and Arrangement has always called Clyde the orange ghost.
Clyde first appears alongside Blinky, Pinky, and Inky in the original arcade classic. He is the final ghost to leave the chamber in the middle of the maze. Unlike the other ghosts, Clyde has a random pattern he follows until he detects Pac-Man near him.
