*** The version seen in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' is even worse; Jim Craddock was a JackTheRipper-expy who murdered women as part of a DealWithTheDevil to make himself immortal. Unfortunately, [[ExactWords what the demon actually promised]] was that Craddock's "spirit would never leave this world". As a result, Craddock is executed for his crimes, and rises again as the Gentleman Ghost.

* One of ComicBook/ThePhantomStranger's origins was that he was the survivor of a divine judgment upon a city who was prevented from joining the afterlife after he lost his family in the judgment and commited suicide. He eventually discovered that his intended purpose was to turn mankind away from evil, one soul at a time.

** Yet ''another'' origin (he gets this a lot) has him be a former angel who didnt take sides during Satan's revolt on Heaven (he disagrees with God's plan for creation but isnt sure about actual revolt). When the War in Heaven rages, and Satan's side is losing, he still cant decide who's side he's on, and as such, isnt damned like the Fallen, but is still exiled from Heaven. The Fallen also want nothing to do with him, and tear off his wings before throwing him to Earth to live as an immortal outcast. Interestingly, this origin was created by AlanMoore during his DC tenure.

** This is the fate of Jim Craddock AKA the Gentleman Ghost, a supervillain ghost who was originally a British highwayman who was killed by 19th century vigilante Nighthawk. As punishment for his crimes, Craddock is cursed to wander the Earth as a ghost until his killer passes on himself. Unfortunatly, Nighthawk was the reincarnation of the ancient pharao Prince Kufu, who is himself fated to continually be reborn due to exposure to the alien Nth metal (most recently as Hawkman). As such, Gentleman Ghost is trapped on Earth.

It may be his fault due to UnfinishedBusiness, [[TheProblemWithFightingDeath getting a little too cheeky with Ol' Grim]], or [[DrivenToSuicide committing suicide]] in a setting where SuicideIsShameful, or being TrueNeutral and thus not good or evil enough for heaven or hell. Or everyone there was just too scared of him. Alternately, being left in limbo ''is'' this universe's version of eternal damnation. Or, for people with a [[DiabolusExMachina particularly difficult and troubled life]], being returned to life, to that horrible life, ''is'' their punishment. For some souls, such a state [[AndIMustScream could actually be worse]] than FireAndBrimstoneHell.

On the other hand, there's plenty of outside factors that can cause this: His remains didn't get their [[DueToTheDead funeral rites]], the CelestialBureaucracy can't find his ticket for the AfterlifeExpress, somebody [[YourSoulIsMine stole his soul]], or [[DeathTakesAHoliday Death went to Hawaii instead]].

Most likely he'll end up [[WalkingTheEarth Floating The Earth]] as a [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Ghost]] (often with GhostlyGoals,) but more rarely he may be forced back into his decaying body as {{Undead}}. Other fates include being stuck in the AfterlifeAntechamber, or shunted to TheNothingAfterDeath. [[LivingForeverIsAwesome If he's really lucky]], his "banned" status will mean that he is CursedWithAwesome; he CameBackStrong and now he has PurposeDrivenImmortality. Although [[WhoWantsToLiveForever that can suck, too]].

** Túrin Turambar. Or rather, barred ''himself'' from the passing on from the Halls of Mandos unto Eru, which is extraordinary since Men by their design are meant to depart Arda. Due to his failures Túrin is unable to rest in peace. Can anyone blame him? Morgoth ensured he had a fairly lousy existence. It's poetic then that he is prophesied to deal the killing-blow unto Morgoth and destroy his evil influence.
