[[folder:Ghosts and half-ghosts in general]]
Ghosts are among the main species and antagonists in the ''Danny Phantom'' universe.
----
* AlienBlood: Apparently, ghosts (and half ghosts in their ghost forms) bleed glowing green ectoplasm, as shown in "Fright Knight" when [[http://dannyphantom.wikia.com/wiki/File:S01e13_ectoplasm_from_cut.png Danny gets a cut by a blade]].
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Ghosts are shown to be able to have skin colors like blue, white (''not'' pale beige), gray, green and etc.
* BeatItByCompulsion: Ghosts' typical behavior makes them vulnerable to this. A notable example is Desiree granting every wish she hears, even ones that work against her goals.
* CallASmeerpARabbit: The ghosts actually are not the disembodied spirits of dead people. They're "monsters/creatures" from a mysterious dimension called the "[[PhantomZone Ghost Zone]]". Although it's never said in the series, but by WordOfGod. They're just called ghosts because it's easier.
* DemonicPossession: Called "Overshadow", ghosts can take over the body of a living person and operate it like a puppet.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: All of Danny's ghost enemies hold an annual truce with any and all other ghosts (including half-ghosts like Danny) so that they can celebrate Christmas. When they discover the Ghost Writer broke the truce, they are ''not'' happy, [[EnemyMine teaming up with Danny to stop him]], and save Christmas.
* FantasticRacism:
** Most ghosts don't like humans and most humans are terrified of the ghosts. Danny being half-ghost makes it worst, as he's hated period by most ghosts he meets and his Alter Ego is feared and hated by most humans except his SecretKeeper friends/sister and the AlphaBitch. It gets creepy when Danny hears about his parents discussing what to do with his alter ego's remains if they ever caught him.
** Although in the humans' case, it's somewhat justified. The majority of humanity's first experiences with ghosts stemmed from an attack by a group of Danny's enemies from the Ghost Zone. Until that point, it was the people that ''believed'' in them were the ones that were ridiculed. The reason [[AlphaBitch Paulina]] was amongst the first to stop hating Danny was because Danny outright saved her life, at which point she started to idolize him.
* GhostlyGoals: Which (if any) ghosts have "unfinished business" and will pass on after completing it is up for debate, considering the show never addressed afterlife beyond the Ghost Zone; however, almost every ghost Danny fights is the "attack the living" type.
* GreenEyes: Danny in ghost-mode, along with most of the ghosts. In fact it's something of a give away when it comes to the ones that can pass for human since while there are some human characters with green eyes, that particular shade of bright ectoplasm-green is unique to ghosts.
* HandBlast: While not really a thing ghosts usually do, some ghosts can fire ectoplasmic blasts or "Ghost Rays" from their hands.
* HandWave: You could say that the entire concept of a "half-ghost" is this. The mechanics behind it is never really explained, and many a fan has tried to figure out how being half-dead really works.
* ILoveNuclearPower: Half-ghosts are the result of the exposure to high levels of ghost energy.
* ImprobableHairstyle: Many of the ghosts have this, but this is averted with most of the humans. Except for Danny. What kind of hairstyle ''is'' that, a reverse mullet?
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Most of the ghosts diverge from mainstream paranormal expectations.
** Though [[JustifiedTrope justified]] since they aren't actually "ghosts" (i.e. the disembodied spirits of dead people). See CallASmeerpARabbit above.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: As with AmazingTechnicolorPopulation, this seems to be a thing for Ghosts.
