    Remember the random, and eventually iconic, ghost that made the Ghostbusters franchise? Stay Puft, the marshmallow man, has been iconic for being the unintended summoning for Gozer's arrival in this dimension. Even though Gozer was defeated in the movies, we'll still be seeing Stay Puft causing terror throughout the streets!

    You might want to stop where you are, because there's a good chance that Slimer's looking right at you. We all know this ghost as the piggish green ghost that notoriously "slimes" people by rushing through them.What you might not know is that Slimer was conjured during a Gozerian Cult meeting at the Sedgewick Hotel. Ever since, the ghost has still been at large - it'll be up to you to catch him once and for all!

    Vinz Clortho

    You've probably seen this friendly pooch before if you watched the original Ghostbusters movies. One of the two terror dogs that serves Gozer, Vinz is a fully corporeal possessor that's capable of interdimensional travel. His job is to travel to any world that has summoned him and possess a male to become The Keymaster that will make way for his master's arrival. Even though his original body was destroyed in the movies, he can still manifest every now and again as an aggressive ghost.

    Have you ever heard of a ghost liberator? That's essentially what Samhain is; as a powerful entity, its main goal is to destroy any and all barriers between dimensions so that ghosts and demons can roam freely. Not much is known about Samhain, other than the fact that this may not even be his real name, but we do know that he's ben able to control lesser beings in the past. To release ghosts and ghouls could potentially give him an army, so it's important to capture him at all costs.

    Oh Zuuly, you nut! You've come back to possess people and take over the world! Zuul is the other corporeal terror dog that serves Gozer and, much like Vinz, is capable of interdimensional travel. She'll travel to worlds in order to make way for her master by possessing a female to be The Gate Keeper. Even though her physical form has been destroyed, she too can come back as an aggressive ghost from time to time.

    Are you ready to bring out the big guns? Yes, you can actually take on Gozer in this game! You may have thought that we'd banished it for good in the original movies, but Gozer is back with a vengeance - sort of. After it was banished, it lost a lot of its original power, meaning it no longer can cause the kind of destruction it once did. However, it can still manifest into a body of its own and cause damage, so don't let its weakened state fool you.
