You are looking for Evil Otto. BYOP
Berzerk was a multi-directional shooter video arcade game, designed by Alan McNeil and released in 1980 by Stern Electronics of Chicago.
The player controlled a green stick-figure, representing a humanoid. Using a joystick (and a firing button to activate a laser-like weapon), the player navigated a simple maze filled with many robots, who fired lasers back at the player character. A player could be killed by being shot, by running into a robot or an exploding robot, coming into contact with the electrified walls of the maze itself, or by being touched by the player's nemesis, Evil Otto.
The function of Evil Otto, represented by a bouncing smiley face, was to quicken the pace of the game. Otto was unusual, with regard to games of the period, in that there was no way to kill him. Otto could go through walls with impunity and was attracted to the player character.
The game was ported to the Vectrex, the Atari 2600, and the Atari 5200. The Atari 5200 was programmed by Carlos Smith from General Computer in Massachusetts who added the arcade game's robot voice without any supporting hardware.
