* '''PlayedStraight''': The ghost looks like a flying white bedsheet with two eye holes.
** '''Justified''': This is the default form for ghosts and he can't help that.
** '''Inverted''': He is white like a bedsheet all over, but otherwise looks like an actual person.
** '''Subverted''': The bedsheet is just a trick or a normal person in a bedsheet cloth.
** '''Doubly Subverted''': And then it turns out he was confused for the real ghost, [[WrongGenreSavvy which his pals mistake for him doing the trick again.]]
** '''Untwisted''': The ghost tries to don many different forms, but ultimately settles on this form.
** '''Parodied''': The ghost uses the bedsheet disguise [[ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself so he can go out and enjoy Halloween.]]
** '''Deconstructed''': He needs to use a piece of cloth or else nobody would even be able to see him when needed, and he wants to prevent being a disembodied voice.
** '''Reconstructed''': He learns to actually don clothing and disguise himself so he can blend in a little more effectively.
** '''ZigZagged''': He can't assume this form, so we possesses somebody else to talk through them and have a form.
** '''Averted''': The ghost just looks like how [[JacobMarleyApparel they did in real life.]]
** '''Enforced''': The bedsheet ghost is used simply because its an audience expectation and [[BoringButPractical simple and clear to describe.]]
** '''Implied''': The ghost has a misty corporeal form that only vaguely resembles a bedsheet.
** '''PlayedForLaughs''': The bedsheet is full of holes, or the ghost is ridiculed for his [[NightmareRetardant laughably simple appearance.]]

** '''Downplayed''': The ghost only uses the bedsheet form sporadically.
** '''Lampshaded''': "They were having a sale at the thrift shop, so I made due with what I could get."
** '''Invoked''': The ghost takes on this form because that's what people expect him to look like.
** '''Defied''': A friend of the ghost suggests disguising himself as this, but scoffs at the idea as silly and cliche.
** '''Discussed''': "Did you see that sap down the street wearing a blanket as a costume? His ma's a real cheapskate."
** '''Conversed''': "Why do you think ghosts actually look like that?"
** '''Exploited''': The ghost disguises himself as an ''actual'' bedsheet so he can play a prank on someone, especially the "hide under the covers" type.
** '''Intended Audience Reaction''': The bedsheet ghost is intentionally used by the writer to make it clear the story is meant to be a lighthearted comedy, rather than scary.
