Pac-Man is the most widely-loved video game icon in history. The simple, cute yellow-faced, dot-eating character has captured the smiles and competitor-spirit in millions of people since 1980. It’s no wonder you can find a large amount of Pac-Man-inspired art or the occasional similarity in everyday life. Without any further adieu, here’s 35 things that look like Pac-Man.
Pac-Man Meets Nature
For the sake of argument, even God loves Pac-Man. To prove that we’re taking a stroll through nature’s Pac-Mans. To start off, take a look at these wet Pac-Man lily-pads taken by simple polariods and Duckprints.
And if not God, aliens certainly seemed to have a place in their hearts for the popular icon when they designed one of these crop circles.
Heck, there’s even a giant Rock-Man, although it could also be a half-eaten ghoul.
Still, we’re not sure it can beat Jamie’s massive Pac-Man Crevice.
Nothing says beach like Pac-Man seaweed covered rocks. It appears this green guy is on the…chomp. Groan if you must.
Still, if you’re looking for the most perfect Pac-Man in nature, all you have to do is look up at the night sky. Sure, it isn’t always yellow, and it’s not actually made of cheese, but Pac-Moon is still a natural phenomenon.
And if you’re really reaching, there’s always room for the infamously photo-shopped Pac-Man Island.
Besides nature, perhaps the most appropriate place to find Pac-Man inspiration is in food. That’s pretty much all Pac-Man does anyway, right? Eat, that is. To start off, let us introduce you to Hanzabeen‘s Pac-Casso Man, the breakfast of Arcade and Cubism champions.
Then there’s the Japanese Cookie-Man.
Don’t forget Pistachio-Man.
You knew this was coming, right? Pac-Man Pizza, but of course.
Speaking of pizzas, what about Pac-Man dessert pies? Here’s three.
How about a taste of Apricot-Man?
Even more appropriate for Pac-Man look-alikes is the character’s alternative diet of bonus points, and by that we mean fruit. A true Pac-Man fiend would never go a day without these high score-worthy treats.
Melon-Man. Peach, Peach, Orange?
kkkelsy’s Watermelon-Man eats tennis balls.
All right, this one is actually a vegetable. But really, who doesn’t love cucumbers and carrots for a mid-day snack. Cucumber Pac-Man approves.
Patchworkbunny’s Satsuma Pac
I don’t know about you, but I’m plenty full at this point. It’s best we move on to something more materialistic. Meet Tree Stump Pac-Man.
Palmu’s “Damn you Pac-Man”, AKA Broken Glass-Man
Another glass Pac-Man bites the dust
The Anti-tobacco Pac-Man lobbyist. He won’t table this issue.
The bookshelf is greater than the idiot box. Make sure to get this bookshelf for your kids to let them know whose boss when it comes to reading time and homework. If that’s not enough, get them a Pac-Man light to read under.
Pac-Man may be licensed and trademarked by Namco, but this hasn’t stopped others from playing around with the character in other logos. Have a look at this fun LG Pac-Man rearrangement.
Troutfactory got a shot of this Pac-Man-inspired logo. Lawsuit pending?
This bus stop logo has a bit of unintentional Pac-Man resemblance. Look hard.
Credit Cruncher indeed.
