'''Ghoul Panic''' (''Oh! Bakyuuun'' in Japan) is a LightGunGame developed by Creator/EightingRaizing and released by Creator/{{Namco}} in 1999 in ArcadeGame form, and then ported one year later to the [[SonyPlayStation PlayStation 1]]. It is considered a SpinOff of the more popular ''VideoGame/PointBlank'' series of games, and in fact it has the same structure comprising various mini-games. This time it also includes full 3D graphics, boss battles and (in the [=PS1=] port) an Adventure Mode.

The game is about a witch's curse that turned people into cats. Kevin and Lisa are two kids who try to rescue them, but the witch caught them and turned them too into humanoid cats. Now they need to free the mansion not only from the ghosts but also from the family of monsters that inhabit it.

Not to be confused with ''[[http://www.zombiepanic.org/site/index.php Zombie Panic]]'' or with ''Ghoul Patrol'', the sequel to ''VideoGame/ZombiesAteMyNeighbors''.

!!''Ghoul Panic'' provides examples of:
* AnimeHair - The main characters, in both human and cat form.
* AttackItsWeakPoint - Bosses' weak points are always signaled.
* BlueBoyPinkGirl - Lisa has pink hair/fur and Kevin's is blue/dark purple.
* ColorCodedMultiplayer - Just like in ''Point Blank'', in some stages you have to shoot the targets in the same color of your player character. Failure in doing so results in the loss of a life.
* CuteWitch - Witchina.
* CuteKitten - The people turned into yellow kittens you need to rescue (i.e. don't shoot them) and of course the players.
* DemBones - Disco dancing skeletons!
* TheEndOrIsIt - [[spoiler: The ending shows Witchina very much alive and pissed off.]]
* FrankensteinsMonster - The first boss, Frankie, is based upon him.
* GaidenGame - Arguably to the ''Point Blank'' series.
* GogglesDoNothing - Kevin sports a couple of them.
* HauntedHouse - The entire game is set in one.
* HighClassGlass - Vladie sports a monocle.
* LighterAndSofter - Compared to every other monster-killing light gun video game ever made.
* MamaBear - Mama Mia, natch. Right after Witchina is defeated, Mama rises from the ground to provide the final boss battle.
* NoblewomansLaugh - Witchina.
* NonIndicativeTitle - Are there any ghouls in this game? Why didn't they call it ''Ghost Panic'' (because, you know, ghosts are about 99% of the enemies)?
* NonMammalMammaries - Mama Mia. It's always a bit unsettling seeing a huge dragon with equally huge, [[{{Gainaxing}} bouncy]] breasts.
* NoOntologicalInertia - After Mama Mia's defeat, the witch's curse is lifted (so the players and the other people revert to their human state) and the ghosts are free to leave the mansion.
* OneWingedAngel - Frankie goes from a toddler hopping on a pogo stick to a huge burly guy throwing cinderblocks, and Vladie the vampire turns into a giant bat.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent - Mama Mia.
* PantyShot - You can get a glimpse of Witchina's underwear when she's riding her flying broom.
* QuirkyHousehold - The bosses (a [[FrankensteinsMonster construct]], a vampire, a witch and a dragon) are all part of the same family, which is possibly the weirdest example of this trope since ''TheMunsters''.
* ShoutOut - The battle against Vladie the vampire is similar to the fight against the Hangedman, the bat-winged creature from the first ''HouseOfTheDead'' game. They both attack by flinging bats at the player, have similar poses and an annoying high-pitched voice.
* ThirdIs3D - If you assume this to be the third installment of the Point Blank series.
* XMeetsY - [[VideoGame/PointBlank Point Blank]] meets HouseOfTheDead.
