A new and very powerful glitch has been discovered involving Pac-Man. It seems that Pac-Man is capable of sending all characters through the stage on all stages using his up-b. Upon a character breaking the red shield, if Pac-Man initiates his up-b the character will fall through the stage. Depending on the character and placement on the stage, there is no way to recover. Youtuber StylesX2 made a video showcasing this strange phenomena.


When will this be patched out of the game? Will this need to be banned from tournaments? There is a lot to discuss on the matter so feel free to do so in the comments, and stay tuned to Smashboards for future updates on the situation.

SmashCapps could see this making matches in For Glory VERY interesting. To discuss this glitch or keep up with all things Smash follow him on Twitter.

Doesn't look broken, as anyone who is aware of it could just immediately jump to counter it. Or even bait out the upb and punish. But this doesn't look intentional by Sakurai at all.

Oh, Pac-Man.
So Troll.:4pacman: I think it's the second time his Trampoline is giving players trouble?
Oh well oO

I suppose players will have to be careful to not jump on his trampoline in online play. I do wonder what's going to happen in tournaments, particulary EVO, if Nintendo doesn't patches it soon.

This ain't Pac-Man, this guy can summon the almighty trampoline and can decide whether you live or die with the drop of a hat.

No, this is Pac-GOD.

For those saying that you should just recover, I would like to stress that certain stages actually make it completely impossible.

The thing is, with the right positioning, his down throw will send them right into it.

This is just Sakurai and team's way of testing (a messed up version of) the Portal gun. Newcomer Chell confirmed. Oh, and Half-Life 3 too. :p

pac man mains make yourselves a favour and don't even bother trying to master this for competitive use so when a patch comes out and fixes the glitch you won't feel like you were "nerfed"

PAC MAN GOD TIER :eek:
Pac-Man goes beyond. He's TITAN TIER! But seriously, this doesn't change anything in the tier list in my opinion. It just doesn't seem very reliable at all, and it will be taken away later. But like I said earlier, it does seem interesting, and I know this probably will happen at least once in tournament...

It's actually surprisingly easy to pull off.

But it's definitely getting patched soon, so it doesn't matter.

as screwy as it looks, it's as folks say, it doesn't look that hard to avoid...

it's not like I need the trampoline, and those recoveries looked lousy, any competent player can have a chance of recovering from underneath Smashville.

Lol of all characters it has to be the troll master Pacman. This will definitely be patched out but not so troublesome for tourney goers that know about it.

Oh, man...That glitch is bound to make Pac-Man :4pacman: overpowered.
Here's hoping it quickly gets patched.

MOST BROKEN THING EVER.
Literally, everyone but :4villager::4pit: and multiple jumpers instantly die.

Shouldn't be banned. It'll go on the patch list for sure, but I can't see anything immediate unless everyone is running to For Glory as I type to do this(>__>) then it might get a Mewtwo esque patch within the week/month.

You can also jump out of this afaik unless you're knocked onto it with fair or something.

Anyway, pretty neat. Not remotely difficult to pull off, but requires you to jump on the trampoline while pacman is at neutral, so I doubt it'd work against anyone who isn't aware. Might be pretty neat against ledge options similar to red tramp setups, but without the huge setup time.

Doesn't seem very broken. One could easily avoid the red trampoline.
And anyone notice that Pac-Man is just full of glitches? Once one goes, another pops up.
