In derby 36, there were about 400 text pac-men. Woot decided, since it takes less than no talent to make a circle with a chunk taken out, especially what with digital illustrators, that Pac Man was overdone enough to warrant a ban. They have previously done this with Flying Penguins (Derby #32) and Street Signs (I forget when) in the interest of making the derbies less full of uncreative references geared solely to having a built-in fan base.

So yes, it is a real thing.

As of the derby before last (text as art), all things Pac-Man were permanently banned. I don't really feel like taking the time to produce a link, but this is an actual rule.

It's not "official", but it is a list built from experience and examples:
