* In ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' (Gamecube), when wandering the town at 3AM you can sometimes be disturbed by an unknown presence whispering, which reveals itself to be a ghost if you stay in one place long enough. He explains his dire situation, where he needs to retrieve 5 Ghost Lights which slowly float around the town. If you don't, his Master (whose name changes every time) will be very displeased. Collecting them for him before Sunrise will have him perform a favor for you, one of which is simultaneously plucking every Weed in town for you.

Will O' Wisps are what happens when swamp gas ignites, resulting in spectral [[TechnicolorFire blue flames]] floating in the air. [[OlderThanDirt Ancient cultures]] [[UniversalTrope across the globe]] tended to associate this with the spirits of the dead and other supernatural forces.

The possession part is rarely played straight in {{anime}}. People dressing as a ghost will usually tie burning candles to their heads to simulate the light. Being surrounded by ghost lights are a visual indicator of someone who is already a ghost. (Which raises the odd FridgeLogic; if ''one'' Ghostlight is a soul, why are ghosts surrounded by multiple ones?)

* The ghost girl from ''Manga/SgtFrog'' is often accompanied by GhostLights, and Dororo tends to sulk in the corner with ghost lights around him when his "[[HeroicBSOD Trauma Switch]]" turns on.

*** Both Yuyuko and Youmu use their GhostLights as {{Attack Drone}}s in the games where they are playable. So does [[BrotherChuck Mima]] from PC98 games.

* Kana from ''MyLovelyGhostKana'' naturally sports them. They are a good indication of her mood, since there are more of them and they make little "pop" sounds when she is especially happy.
