Pac-Man Vs. (パックマンvs. Pakkuman Buiesu) is a Pac-Man video game originally designed exclusively for the Nintendo GameCube that was included as an extra bonus disc with the Player's Choice edition of Pac-Man World 2. It was also included in the GameCube versions of I-Ninja and Namco's R: Racing Evolution for a limited time, as well as a free giveaway at some stores.

Pac-Man Vs. is very similar to the Luigi's Ghost Mansion minigame in the Wii U title Nintendo Land. It features asymmetrical gameplay: one player controls Pac-Man on a Game Boy Advance, and one or more players play ghosts on the television. The Pac-Man player sees the entire field in 2D, ala traditional Pac-man games; while the ghost players see the action a limited vision 3D view on the television. The Pac-Man player's goal is to eat all of the pellets on the screen before being captured by ghosts, while the ghosts work as a team to try to capture Pac-Man. If a ghost catches Pac-Man, he will swap controllers with the Pac-Man player and take the role of Pac-Man in the next round. Single-player is not supported; it requires one player to play Pac-Man with a GBA, and one or more players as ghosts. It is the only GameCube game to require a Game Boy Advance and link cable to play.
