** In Ravnica, they're primarily ghosts, due to the plane being trapped in its own little bubble in TheMultiverse and not allowing the spirits of the dead to escape, forcing them to manifest on the physical plane. They are heavily associated with the [[CorruptChurch Orzhov Syndicate]], which uses them as guards and enforcers and is ruled by a ghost council, the Ozbedat. That said, some spirits are known to be part of other guilds.

** Both worlds also give spirits a hierarchical structure, organizing them into courts with various ranks, but with different twists. In nWoD, each spirit is technically an independent actor that shares a Choir with like types - for instance, each dove spirit gets along with other dove spirits and is a member of the Choir of Birds. In cWoD, each spirit is effectively a "representative" of a greater totem, which may itself fall in with the brood of a totem more powerful than itself - for instance, each dove spirit is actually an aspect/representative of Dove, who is herself allied with the brood of Unicorn, and so forth.

* In ''Franchise/{{Nasuverse}}'', there is a lot of different types of spirits, although they do common characteristics:
** All spirits are immaterial, temporary existence that feeds off the life-force of material beings to continue existing. Due to how laws of physics work in Nasuverse (laws of physics are actually magical laws, created and inserted upon reality by the [[SentientCosmicForce Ultimate Ones]]), even spirits must obey physics (such as gravity and buoyancy), although they still can't be harmed by physical harm. Due to the unstable nature of a spirit's existence, they are almost always confined to a limited space, either to the location where they were born or a master whom they made contract with, and are unable to travel to the reality outside of that.
** From their origin, there are two types of spirits, spirits who came from [[TheHeartless Alaya]] (collective human conscious) and [[MotherNature Gaia]] (Ultimate One of the Earth). Spirits coming from Alaya are beings [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve who exist in human imagination]], such as mythical beings and gods (called Phantasmal Beasts and Divine Spirits, respectively). For these to exist however, they need the "approval" of the World (Gaia) and they stopped existing in the modern age since [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly fewer people believe in them]]. Spirits who came from Gaia are called {{Nature Spirit}}s, and they range from [[ElementalEmbodiment Elementals]] to [[EldritchAbomination bizarre monsters]].
** Finally, there are the Heroic Spirits. Humans who manage to imprint themselves inside the collective conscious due to their fame as "heroes" in human history (either actual or made-up). These are a special type of spirits, since they can't be created except by the [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Holy Grail]], powerful artifact of [[RealityWarper True Magic]] capable of manipulating and materializing souls. Once every 60 years, in an event mages call "Holy Grail Wars", the Grail will choose 7 mages as Masters for 7 Heroic Spirits that will be summoned as their "[[{{Mons}} Servants]]". These Masters must then kill the Servants of each other until only one Servant remains, at which the Grail will grant the wishes of the victorious Master and Servant. As said above, since spirits need life-force from material beings, the easiest way to kill Servants is to kill the Master that sustains them (although the surviving Servant can just consume the souls of innocent civilians to continue existing, most Heroes are too honorable for that).
