**** Though that doesn't make sense in some cases, as several ghosts are explicitly stated to be the ghosts of someone who died (Sidney, Desiree, The Dairy King, Ember...). It's possible it's a little of both, and that many entities of the Ghost Zone are ectoplasmic entities who simply belong in that world, but also serves as a purgatory of sorts (which is further supported by the existance of the Elsewhereness and the Unworld, the DP-verse's versions of Heaven and Hell, respectively.

** The Dragon Ghost's first appearance shows her shouting about how she wants to go to the ball. This isn't her being a SpoiledBrat; balls aren't just dancing get-togethers, they're events where rich men and women can search for marriage partners without breaking the bounds of etiquette. If the Dragon Ghost got married, she would leave her family with the new husband of her choosing. She's not raging at her mother for not letting her have fun; she's angry enough to turn into a dragon because [[TheWoobieDestroyerOfWorlds she can't access her one socially acceptable escape route from her brother]].

*** And that's not even mentioning that most of the tricks Vlad learned would have been through trial and error whereas Danny at least knew ''what'' was possible from watching Vlad instead of spending months trying to do something impossible.

** That or it has something to do with the Fentons being ghost hunters for centuries. It's likely that they developed some genetic resistance to ectoplasm over the years.

** When you think about it, [[spoiler: both Jack and Vlad being capable of withstanding the ghost portal's zap says a lot about why Vlad wants Danny as the son he never had. He sees a bit of his robustness in Danny, and it feels as though he could've been his son in another life.]]



* I was just watching TUE again, and I saw a pattern in Dark Danny's chaos. He destroys Ember's vocal cords, She's a singer. Johnny Thirteen is in a wheelchair, he is a motorbike rider. Box ghost, nothing without realizing he and Lunch Lady had a daughter, and Lunch Lady is nowhere to be seen. The kicker is with Vlad, truly alone, truly powerless and helped create the monster to help the kid he wants as a son. Dan Phantom was going for extreme Irony.
** Interesting theory. Now that I think about it, this could be Dark Danny's entire motivation for his evil acts. Remember he was created after Danny loses everything that mattered to him (his friends and family). So in an odd way, maybe Dark Danny is trying to make everyone know his pain, sort of like "if I am going to be miserable than no one else deserves to be happy". Skulktech even points out that Danny is responsible for causing the same misery and pain to everyone he knew just as much as he probably felt after losing his family. And maybe he doesn't want Clockwork or Danny changing his past because that would mean the return of his human conscience (and having to deal with the guilt of his actions) and the fact he probably feels he's too far gone for anything to change anyway.

*** It's been confirmed by Butch Hartman that the ghosts are ectoplasmic beings, not dead people.

* The idea of using a thermos, of all things, to contain ghosts seems a little odd. However, real thermoses are also designed to contain something intangible: heat. With this in mind, a thermos being used to capture creatures/beings that can turn intangible suddenly goes from weird to clever.

* Ironically, this thought was inspired by the NightmareFuel page, but it's mentioned that out of him and his friends, Danny is the only one who could've survived getting zapped by the ghost portal without [[NightmareFuel getting killed]]. Looking back at "Masters of all Times", and seeing [[spoiler: Jack Fenton survive the accident]], it becomes clear that Danny inherited his father's robustness.

* It's ironic when you consider Danny and Vlad's respective secret identities and alter-egos. Their ghost forms are their ''true selves'', whilst their human forms are the real ghosts of who they used to be (or pretend to be). Danny Fenton is the ghost of a lazy, selfish, immature kid. Vlad Masters is the ghost of a mild-mannered, gentlemanly, [[FromNobodyToNightmare harmless]] millionaire.

** And in the finale, it must've shocked Jack to know his worst fears were right (that Vlad still hated him), but that his friend was ''actively retaliating'' him. But what really hits home is, their final conversation up in space was one in which they finally brought up the issue that had festered beneath the surface for so long. Jack brought up their previous friendship as a show that all his efforts to make amends were to return to the friendship they once knew. And hearing Vlad reciprocate it with spite was the wake-up call he needed to realize his "old friend" was dead, and Vlad Plasmius was nothing but the ghost of his friend.
