The Ecto-Clone [1] was a mean creature eating junk and metal around the city. Its main power was to self-replicate if shot with Proton Streams, so when the combined team of Real and Extreme Ghostbusters captured it, there was already eight of them.

HistoryEdit

The week before Thanksgiving, the Extreme Ghostbusters got a call to Hell's Kitchen, in Midtown Manhattan, to investigate. They observed an entity digging through a dumpster in an alley near 145 West 45th Street. While listening from the Firehouse, Ray Stantz warned the team to modify their Proton Gun's ecto-tropic particle filter then recalibrate the main circuit. [2] However, they only heard the first half of the instructions. After trapping the ghost, two duplicates appeared and the teams' equipment was out of energy. The original Ghostbusters arrived and used a 'carrot on a stick' strategy to distract the ghosts. Winston Zeddemore blasted a parking meter pole and threw it out to the ghosts. While they fed on it, the Ghostbusters trapped them.

Soon after, another call comes out from the George Washington Bridge. The Ecto-Clones were present and eating up the bridge but now there was four. Egon Spengler realized they had the same P.K.E. density as the previous ghosts the team encountered. [3] As the bridge lost its stability, Janine Melnitz called in the Extreme Ghostbusters to help. They rushed in and trapped the four ghosts. While the teams regrouped at the Firehouse, Kylie Griffin noticed a high ion discharge off a clone. It was concluded the metallic ions ingested by the ghosts correlate directly to their self-replicating abilities. When the ghost is zapped and trapped, the protons displace the self-replicating ions into the atmosphere. The entity then reforms and replicated one other Ecto-Clone. Ray proposed they fuse the ions and trap all of the Ecto-Clones. [4] [5] [6]

The Ghostbusters created a Fusion Blast Adapter to add to the Proton Guns and fuse the Ecto-Clones. The next morning, they tracked the Ecto-Clones, now eight in total, to a radio tower. Before the bust began, Ray warned everyone that ionic fusion carries the risk of releasing enough energy to instantly vaporize the immediate area into a crater the size of Death Valley. [7] Undaunted, the two teams blasted the ghosts and trapped them successfully.

PersonalityEdit

They for the most part are like dogs, and to a degree can be distracted like one.

ClassificationEdit

In Hell's Kitchen, they theorized it was a Class 4 Feeder. [8] [9] After the bridge encounter, Egon concludes they are a Class 4 Self-Replicating Specter, an extremely rare type of ghost. [10]

If it's a Class 4 Feeder, you don't want to blast it without kicking in the ecto-tropic particle filter...After you kicked in the ecto-tropic filter, did you remember to recalibrate the main circuit?"

Kylie says: "And because protons tend to displace ions, every time we blast the entities with Proton Beams, their self-replicating ions are displaced into the atmosphere where the entity is duplicated."

If too much energy is released during the process...well, this area we're standing on can end up a crater the size of Death Valley."
