Big Green [1] is an evil doppelganger of Slimer. There was a leak in the Containment Unit that caused Slimer to turn into Big Green every time he went to sleep. He was captured when Slimer and Big Green were separated by slightly modified Proton Streams.

HistoryEdit

The Containment Unit occasionally suffered from fatigue and stress. The Ghostbusters once failed to prevent a seal failure. [2] As a result, a small amount of ectoplasm escaped but not enough to constitute a whole ghost.[3] The ectoplasm was some form of catalytic paranormal flux, harmless to corporeal entities but to incorporeal ones, the flux could induce malevolent ectoplasmic metamorphosis. It changes small, friendly ghosts into big, scary ones. [4] [5] The energy leak infected Slimer while he slept. [6] [7] Thus, Slimer would sleep walk, in a sense, and transform into a monster form without knowing it. The monster carried out his base desire, to eat everything.

The Ghostbusters first encountered the monster at a 24 hour deli where it was dubbed "Big Green." They met it again at Neptune's Floating Restaurant where they tried to use Plan 52-A but failed to trap it again. While checking the Containment Unit, the Ghostbusters were attacked by Big Green. They trapped it but tripped on his ectoplasm and released him, only to find Slimer. Egon realized Slimer was infected and tried to find a way to reverse the process with Ray. If they didn't, Slimer would remain in this monster form forever after a few more transformations. [8] Meanwhile, Peter and Winston tried to keep Slimer awake and prevent anymore transformations. They failed and Big Green took off.

The Ghostbusters confronted it the 24 hour City Supermarket. They took a risk and induced ectoplasmic fission to separate Slimer from Big Green by setting their guns to 50,000 Giga Hertz. [9] [10] Peter reflected his Proton Stream off a store mirror and succeeded. After the dust cleared, Slimer and Big Green were two separate entities. However, there was so much ectoplasm present that Egon couldn't pinpoint Big Green's location with the P.K.E. Meter. They asked Slimer what he would want to eat the most. Slimer took them to the ice cream section, where sure enough Big Green was. Although confined in the Proton Streams, he still managed to drag the Ghostbusters before Peter trapped him.

AbilitiesEdit

Big Green employs unique tactics to avoid the Proton Streams. It spins in a circle and can spin itself into a vortex and emit large amounts of ectoplasm.

TriviaEdit

  • Flashbacks of Big Green's appearance are seen in the hour-long version of the later episode "Deja Boo."
