Funky (ファンキー Fankii) is a green Common ghost from Pac-Mania. Like the rest of the ghosts, they are an enemy to Pac-Man. They are also partners with Spunky, who is stated to be their cousin.

In the Japanese versions of Pac-Mania, Funky is not named or referred to as a singular individual, simply being one of the numerous Common Ghosts encountered in the game.

At first, Funky appears as a standard ghost. They will do their best to try and catch Pac-Man, but tend to huddle around Sue most of the time. Funky never goes into a 'scatter' position, as they always use Pac-Man as their target. Starting in Sandbox Land however, Funky is given the ability to jump. Whenever Pac-Man jumps, Funky will jump with him; a well-timed jump will allow Pac-Man to jump over them.

Funky returns in Pac-Man 256, alongside Spunky. Funky appears in packs of four; the quartet moves back and forth, stopping upon bumping into the maze walls. They do not directly attack Pac-Man, but move very fast.

Possible other appearances

These games feature a green ghost similar to Funky, but are not 100% confirmed to be them, as they do not refer to the ghost by name. It is possible they are merely generic green ghosts with no relation to Funky.

A green ghost appears in the opening cutscene. Looking outside a window, they catch Pac-Man traveling towards Ghost Island via boat. They alert Toc-Man that Pac-Man is coming, before nervously stating "I mean...that pathetic fool, trying badly to impersonate you who is clearly the real Pac-Man..." It is then revealed that the ghosts, who intended to capture Pac-Man, accidentally kidnapped Ms. Pac-Man instead.
