* Perhaps on the future of Filmation's ''Ghostbusters'', even. Ghost catching rope, ectoplasm gum, it makes sense.
* ''Ghostbusters The Game'' makes this even more plausible, with a short romp into an unnamed ghost dimension in 1991, possibly the first human contact with the Ghost Zone. Ghostbusters' ghost dimension is a parallel of the human geography, however, this doesn't make it incompatible- Note how easily Ember, Skulker, The Box Ghost, and others find new homes in Reign Storm, perhaps these are the places exaggerated into their lairs in the Ghost Zone?

If he was killed by a harsh prank, the prankers could've stuffed his dead body in his locker, thus tying his spirit to the locker and, possibly, explaining why his locker hasn't been touched in so long to the point of not being repainted and rusting. Plus explaining why they never removed the mirror from the locker. It was obviously something Poindexter added to the locker himself, seeing as normal high school lockers are bare at the beginning of the school year to be filled by the student that the locker's been assigned. Being attached to objects is common in hauntings which, rather you believe in real ghosts or not, is a real world correlation of hauntings whether it's something as small as a hammer, or something as big as a house, most hauntings are said to be caused by the spirit(s) being attached to something in the vicinity of the place or people being haunted. Thus explains the attachment Poindexter has to the locker, as it was his in addition to being shoved in it constantly. Doesn't explain the black-and-white Ghost Zone version of the school, but it could be his mind interpreting what's going on in the spirit realm. Plus, most hauntings don't begin until the spirit is awoken by something they perceive as a disturbance to the status quo of where they are, which would explain why the excess bullying is what finally allowed him to break out of the Ghost Zone.

When Danny went inside the portal to the [[PhantomZone Ghost Zone]], he accidentally activated it while inside. This caused him to be [[ElectricTorture electrocuted]] ''and'' [[PainfulTransformation mutated]] with ectoplasm'''(1)'''. Whiling enduring said shock, he was caught between two worlds… and two different states of being.

to:

* Kind of not possible, considering he's shown shirtless in the Undergrowth episode and is not shown with developing breasts at all. Plus his voice is distinctly male.




to:

* Maybe more of the fact that he's undead already, seeing how his human self in The Ultimate Enemy never became a ghost, maybe he's already dead, but his body's still partially alive, considering his skin color doesn't change from its normal pigmentation when he goes ghost, unlike Vlad, or maybe it's a case of being OnlyMostlyDead, considering his DNA's been shown as turning into ghost DNA. Though it maybe isn't the case. Considering how, in his normal form, he can still be overshadowed by Poindexter and his clone, he's most likely still affected by ghosts, and other things, like any other living human, he's most likely still mortal, just with a higher invulnerability than everyone else. Considering his father couldn't handle the robot suit pants from 'Reign Storm' for more than a minute, but Danny could handle the entire suit itself for a lot longer by comparison, it stands to reason that he can exert himself longer than the average person when in ghost form.




to:

* Could be a natural case of either ClarkKenting, or the fact that his powers allow him to become more extroverted than he's been. If you take the Clark Kenting into consideration, he needs to hide his powers from the world, which he does for several reasons. If you take the extra extroversion into account, it's revealed in the episode where Sam wishes she never met him or Tucker, that they'd really be doing nothing with their lives until college outside of school, then the confidence his powers give him allow him to break out of his shell a bit as his regular self. Well, that and Sam, but speaking as someone who was in a case similar to Danny's in high school, you're either at the bottom of the school social ladder either because you're very introverted, or you become that way as a result of being there, especially if you don't have many friends you hang out with outside of school. It's basically like Peter Parker. He puts on a facade as himself, but as Spider-Man, he can let his true self out. The confidence spills over into his normal personality a bit because he's becoming accustomed to having to draw the line between his two personas. It's a common trope amongst super heroes. Seeing as Danny's characterization seems to be primarily influenced by Spider-Man, as well as the entirety of the show itself seemingly being influenced by Spider-Man, this only makes sense. Just watch the 2012 Spider-Man film for a perfect example of this with Peter showing up Flash at Basketball.




to:

* Might explain why his human self's ghost is nowhere to be seen in the bad future in 'The Ultimate Enemy,' he's already dead. Plus Vlad kept his body on life support when he ripped his ghost half from his body. Maybe it was a theory Vlad developed, but it was never revealed to the audience. It's possible Vlad didn't expect Danny to survive the process, which is why he said he was freeing Danny himself from the pain of human emotions rather than just separating his ghost half from his human half. Doesn't explain 'Identity Crisis,' or 'What You Want,' where he's fine when they're separated for periods of time.




to:

* Are we sure this wasn't supposed to have "not" in the title? Anyways, since the episode's ''especially'' vague on how Danny's parents, Jazz, Sam, Tucker, and Mr. Lancer ended up at the nasty burger, that alone could've been a timeline set in stone by Clockwork after the Box Lunch fight. Some other ghost could've taken advantage of the situation and gotten their vengeance on Danny. Since we never saw this original timeline before the explosion, it's just guessing, but it seems this was the most likely option. Future Danny's logic also doesn't really hold up to any kind of logic either, at least from my perspective. Danny would be filled with grief, yes, but not enough to repeat the mistake Vlad described to him in the future from that timeline as far as I can see. He would've angrily entered the ghost zone and tracked down Clockwork to demand he take him back in time to undo what happened rather than become him after the shit he was just through. After all, why would Danny knowingly set forth horrible events he knows would happen if he could prevent it? If you take the theory from ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration]]'s'' episode 'Parallels,' his timeline was just one of many possible outcomes Danny could've faced. The fact that Dark Danny still exists in the Fenton Thermos pretty much confirms that, while probably unintentionally considering the dialogue at the end of the special, that his timeline was relegated to alternate timeline status rather than main timeline status as it became.




to:

** I'm more inclined to believe he still exists because of a mix of Clockwork transporting him to a place that exists outside of the space-time continuum, his lair, an the fact that we never saw Dark Danny get rid of his medallion. Think about it. He needs it to be rooted to the past, so he's obviously hanging on to it n his person. We just never see it past the scene where he uses it. It's possible it's under his suit in his regular form. The medallion keeps you from being affected by any timeline changes, or time effects of any kind, hence why they could move when Clockwork paused time while wearing them, so why would he get rid of it when he needs it? You either need to be in contact with one, or in indirect contact with someone who is to maintain your presence along the space-time continuum, or you either get sent back to Clockwork's lair, your origin point you left, or possibly get erased from existence if your timeline's erased, or your past self dies in any way (though that last one's speculation).

[[WMG: Sydney Poindexter either committed suicide or was killed by a dangerous prank.]]
Think about it. His ghost self is still 14, possibly 15. It was the 50s, so it wasn't as socially accepted to be outwardly nerdy or geeky back then amongst the teenage crowd. He wasn't shown to have friends, confirmed by him saying as much after he took over Danny's body by replacing Danny's spirit with his, or seeking counseling to help deal with his situation, if he even could back then. If he committed suicide, then that would explain why his corner of the Ghost Zone is as it is. It's his personal purgatory for atoning for one of the greatest sins in most religions. It explains why, in his part of the Ghost Zone, he has no powers, but in the real world, he does. With teen bullying causing a lot of reported suicides today, it could've affected just as many teens back then to be driven to the same result, it's just that it wasn't as widely reported because people didn't take it as a serious cause of teen suicide. Thus when he died, he remained as he was physically and was forced to repent by having to deal with the constant frustration and humiliation of being around those douche bags from his life in high school as a result.

If he was killed by a harsh prank, the prankers could've stuffed his dead body in his locker, thus tying his spirit to the locker and, possibly, explaining why his locker hasn't been touched in so long to the point of not being repainted and rusting. Plus explaining why they never removed the mirror from the locker. It was obviously something Poindexter added to the locker himself, seeing as normal high school lockers are bare at the beginning of the school year to be filled by the student that the locker's been assigned.

Plus, most hauntings don't begin until the spirit is awoken by something they perceive as a disturbance to the status quo of where they are, which would explain why the excess bullying is what finally allowed him to break out of the Ghost Zone.

A bit grim, and even I prefer the first explanation because it's a bit more plausible, or good because it's about how teen bullying needs to stop, but it still makes sense nonetheless.

The theory is portals open for newly killed ghosts and both of the portals Jack created exploit that fact but by some loophole create portals by only half killing a person. Since if Jack did this conciously he should know this idea works with the theory that Jacks inventing skills act more like magic than science. The reason on button was inside was because that would be the best place to put the human sacrifice.

[[WMG: Dark Danny ''is'' still Danny's future.]]
Let's take a look at [[https://youtu.be/1rVTlNMoOak?t=20m20s this scene]] near the end of An Eye For An Eye, where Danny ruins Plasmius' latest scheme. Yay, the villain's defeated - mostly - everything is awe- Wait a second, ''did he just '''overshadow Plasmius?!''''' ''Really'', Danny? Yeah, because that worked out ''so'' well for you [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEtFsVJhZ-8&feature=youtu.be&t=37m45s last time]]...
-->'''Dark Danny:''' But me, my future? [[OhCrap I'm inevitable...]]
-->'''Dark Danny:''' You don't get it, do you? ''I'm still here. I still exist.'' That means ''you'' still turn into ''me''.
*So let's fast forward a few years into the future. Picture the scenario: post series finale, [[NotQuiteDead Vlad comes back]], out for vengeance. Total VillainousBreakdown, wants to blow ''[[PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery everything]]'' up [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge as payback.]] He's the ''only'' ghost who is an existential threat to the world at this point. And he's beating the shit out of Danny Phantom. Heck, maybe he even ''succeeds'' in killing a few... or ''all''... of Danny's family and friends.
*And so, in his DarkestHour... Danny comes up with [[GodzillaThreshold a desperate plan.]] A possibly-HeroicSacrifice to rid the world of Vlad Plasmius forever... by [[EnemyWithin overshadowing him and locking him away inside him]].
-->'''Dark Danny:''' NiceJobBreakingItHero. -[[WorldWreckingWave World-Wrecking]] [[FantasticNuke Ghostly Wail]] time!-

** As interesting as this theory is, I'd be more inclined to believe that he was simply an incredibly androgynous kid that and possibly suspected by his parents/classmates to not be entirely straight given their having the 'We love you for you' speech on hand and caught no end of shit for it. It fits with every point except for Dani being the only successful clone and, given that the setting is shown to use lego genetics, that one can probably be hand waived.
