The Squid Ghost [1] was created from the anger and hatred of every ghost the Ghostbusters ever trapped and put into the Containment Unit. [2] [3] [4]

HistoryEdit

After years of busting various entities, the Ghostbusters indirectly influenced the creation of a new and unique ghost. Filled with every captured entity's anger, an orange Squid Ghost with pinchers on the tips of his tentacles manifested. Made of pure hatred, its only goal was to destroy the Ghostbusters and anything associated with them. It haunted a Retirement Center and the Bowl and Coffee Shop, flattened the tires on Ecto-1, started trashing the Firehouse, chased Slimer, and used his slime to send the Ghostbusters and Ecto-1 flying. He was eventually trapped by Winston, Peter, and Slimer. Slimer utilized Professor Dweeb's Magnetic Flux Beam to help fully confine the ghost so it could be trapped.

PersonalityEdit

Being a composite of the anger of every ghost captured by the Ghostbusters, the Squid Ghost enjoys tormenting the Ghostbusters and everything it does to them could be interpreted as the ghosts' revenge for being captured.

PowersEdit

Like any ghost, it can fly and phase through walls. It is also resilient (shown when it pulled itself back together after being blown apart by an overloaded Proton Pack) and spreads laughing ink-like slime on its victims. After some experimentation, Egon Spengler determined the inky ectoplasm was highly volatile and could cause people and objects saturated in it to fly around. [5]

ClassificationEdit

Egon stated the Squid Ghost was a Class 6 or better while talking into his tape recorder after the retirement center bust. [6]

TriviaEdit

  • The Squid Ghost is one of the few entities, if not the only, not found in Tobin's Spirit Guide or any other occult reference.
