[[GhostlyGoals The primary reason]] for ghosts to be BarredFromTheAfterlife. They want revenge, their story to be told, or simply to be informed once and for all that they are, in fact, ''dead''. To get rid of the ghosts, the hero or heroine will have to either do extensive research in old newspaper articles or communicate somehow with the ghosts. Ghosts with Unfinished Business almost always have PurposeDrivenImmortality; once their business is finished, they vanish in a flash of light.

** [[spoiler: Seymour]] is a dark(er) example, using his undeath as a way to continue pursuing his OmnicidalManiac goals. He definitely turns into a monster, it just so happens that he kinda already was one.

* Occasionally, [[WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters the Ghostbusters]] didn't actually have to zap the ghosts to bust them. By helping them accomplish their Unfinished Business, the Ghostbusters made the ghosts rest in peace, which worked just as well as blasting them with the proton beams.
