* {{Intangibility}} or Phasing: Default state of ghosts tends to be intangible. They can, with an effort of will, become tangible, but they usually cannot pass on that intangibility to anything they were holding. Typically, if they pass through solid matter while holding something, the solid matter remains behind after the ghost has passed through.

This is most common in modern works; older ones are more likely to be (inexplicably) solid, and some can even pass for living humans.

# There's also the odd rare case of a ghost that was never a living human being. It may be an animal. It may be a synthetic ghost made by alchemy. It may just be some odd spooky apparition. In cartoon setting, a ghost child can be considered to be the son of a couple of "normal" ghosts, born after the two normal ghosts's death (this is mainly to have a young ghost spectators can identify to, without addressing the issue of a child's death). Or it may be some sort of... ''[[EldritchAbomination thing]]'' pretending to be a ghost to suit its purposes.

# That's just how the Afterlife works in this universe. No alternate dimension, Higher Plane of Existence or anything -- you just become a ghost when you die.

# The ghost hasn't yet figured out they're dead, or are so attached to what they did in life they are still doing it out of habit and/or affection. This can lead to a TomatoInTheMirror shock, an Obi-Wan or a SpiritAdvisor.
