* DirtyCoward: Wexler may be a harsh and imposing judge, but he gets a big fright when he sees the ghosts of the Scholeri Brothers, men he sentenced to death, appear in his courtroom. He has the cheek to order the Ghostbusters, whom he had just sentenced to prison, fined heavily and are still under a judicial order, for help. Plus, he grudgingly rescinds send order and then orders the Ghostbusters to put things right.

He hides under a table and tries to leave the court as quickly as possible, not bothering to help the prosecutor who is being terrorised by the ghosts of the Scholeri Brothers. Wexler also has the cheek to order beg the Ghostbusters, whom he had just sentenced to prison, fined heavily and are still under a judicial order, for help. Plus, he grudgingly rescinds send order and then orders the Ghostbusters to put things right.

* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: Apparently Gozer's trademark. When it arrives to cause an apocalypse, it forces the denizens of the world its about to destroy to choose the form it will end them with. Ray accidentally chooses the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, which he believes to be the least threatening of all the transformations (and probably would have been had it not been the size of a skyscraper).

Ray accidentally chooses the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, which he believes to be incapable of causing the least threatening kind of all the transformations destruction Gozer wants (and probably would have been had it not been the size of a skyscraper).



** Further, Gozer's habit of making the inhabitants of a realm choose the form used to destroy it works against Gozer. Gozer ends up stuck in a chubby, awkward body '''made of marshmallows''' and lacking any special destructive abilities, bringing Gozer down to a level where four random humans on foot manage to thwart the destruction entirely (multiple times if you count the ExpandedUniverse).



* TheNotSoHarmlessPunishment: Ray tries to think of a form for Gozer that couldn't possibly hurt anyone. Guess what?

* FlatEarthAtheist: At the start of the second film, even after dealing with real ghosts and an extradimensional deity, he still thinks the only reason a person would write a book about the end of the world would be to make a quick buck from gullible readers. Possibly justified by his line to Dana in the first film saying ''most'' people who say they see ghosts are nutjobs. In the second movie he's actually really bitter about this, believing his work with the Ghostbusters was the high point of his life, and now that they're not needed anymore, his life is essentially over.

A 16th century tyrant and sorcerer, Vigo conquered a good section of Eastern Europe before being put down by a rebellion at the age of 105. Vigo reappeared in modern day Manhattan possessing his own portrait, and generated a "mood slime" that heightened people's negative emotions, which hastened his return.
