Pac-Man appeared as a playable racer in Mario Kart Arcade GP DX with his Ghostly Adventures design, an arcade game in the Mario Kart series. Alongside Mario and all his friends, he is joined by Namco's Don-chan.
- Originally, Pacster and Pac-Man were shown to be the same character as each other. However, many nods were made to imply the two were different as time went on. This was possibly done as a form of damage control; the "new" Pac-Man was poorly received by many fans, and these subtle nods may have been added to separate the divide slightly. Some notable differentiations include:
- The "new" Pac-Man character lives in a futuristic world, while the other Pac-Man lives in an old-timey village.
- Ghostly Adventures takes place in Pac-Man's childhood, despite the "old" Pac-Man's backstory being shown in Pac 'n Roll, where it was completely different.
- In the reboot, all of the yellow Pac-People are dead except for Pacster. In the original series, there are no Pac-Men that aren't yellow.
- A Pac-Man's Arcade Party machine can be seen in the background of the cafeteria in Ghostly Adventures. Ms. Pac-Man, who has no appearances alongside Pacster whatsoever, remains on the side art, as she does on the "home version" machine model. It also appears in Pac-Man Museum, where it is described as "a historic arcade cabinet".
- In Pacster's dorm room, you can see models of the ship from Galaxian / Galaga.
- Various games and merchandise, starting with Pac-Man Party, show a "prototype" version of Pacster with a slightly different design. Games featuring this design do not take place in the Ghostly Adventures universe.
