The ghosts in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The ghosts, also referred to as monsters, are a group of characters that make up the main antagonists of the Pac-Man franchise. The group typically consists four members, Blinky, Inky, Pinky, and Clyde, each having a different color. The group is led by Blinky. In the first Pac-Man game, the four ghosts chase after Pac-Man.

The ghosts appear as a collective Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, retaining their appearance from the original Pac-Man arcade game. The ghosts fly around the screen, damaging any players they touch and knocking them away. After a while, they speed up before leaving the screen. The ghosts also appear on the Pac-Maze stage in the 3DS version, in which they again damage the player if they are hit. Collecting a Power Pellet causes the ghosts to turn to blue on the player's screen, allowing the player to "eat" the ghosts like in the original game. The ghosts also appear as Pac-Man's smash attacks. They also appear in Pac-Man's reveal poster for the same game, where Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde are shown, respectively, traversing the northwestern portion of the maze as Sonic is trying to regain balance near a ledge above it; pursuing Samus Aran at the bottom of the maze; cornering Princess Peach in the ghost area; and in TURN-TO-BLUE form about to be sprayed by Bowser's fire breath.
