Tim is an orange ghost that appears in Jr. Pac-Man. Much like Sue in Ms. Pac-Man, he replaces Clyde.

Jr. Pac-Man

Main article: Jr. Pac-Man

Tim first appeared alongside Blinky, Pinky, and Inky in Jr. Pac-Man. His role is identical to Clyde's in the original Pac-Man, and he looks identical to him as well. He starts on the righthand side of the Ghost Home in the Maze's center, sitting next to Pinky.

While his movements are often described as being "random", Tim's movements are deliberate. Tim actually does directly chase Jr. Pac-Man (exactly the way Blinky does) most of the time; but when he gets within an eight-space radius of Junior, he starts to retreat to the lower-left corner of the maze.

In The Sandbox Evolution, after over three decades of absence in the Pac-Man series, Tim makes a return. He was redesigned to be colored peach, and has unique, black eyes. His AI is similar to that of Funky, except it is designed to be vertical.


  • In Jr. Pac-Man, due to the difference in the game's color palette, Tim is a slightly darker shade of orange compared to Clyde or Sue.
