    Students of Scare School 


  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: In "Vote for Casper" Mantha strokes Casper's head when she reveals that she did vote for him. In "What Possessed You?" Stretch also strokes Casper on the head when he believes Casper gave up on being friendly.
  • Anti-Hero: At first and for most of the series, he is unambiguously friendly and kind, even if he is more than a bit snarky who isn't above lying and generally being an occasional "trouble-maker" in school, even during the earlier installments. Then Casper got Darker and Edgier, doing things that become much more questionable as time goes on, even when they're being used to reach goals that are unquestionably heroic.
  • Berserk Button: Unsurprisingly, he doesn't react too well to his friends being threateaned.
    • In "What Possessed You?" he scarred one of the Normans after he possessed Casper and bullied his classmates and Jimmy.
    • In "Messy Bussiness at the Manor", Mosshead found out about Casper being friends with a fleshie and contemplated to tell everyone at Scare School. Casper finally snaps and chews him out for being an Ungrateful Bastard. He gives Mosshead a mighty "The Reason You Suck" Speech and unintentionally scares him.
    • Don't you ever embarrass him in front of his classmates.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Pushing him around too much is not a good idea.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: He is great at scaring people, both on purpose or in accident, and even scarred a crowd better than Kibosh himself once and he wasn't even trying to.
  • Character Development: In season 2, he's gotten a lot more aggressive towards Thatch and will fight back when Thatch picks on him.
  • Cheerful Child: Has a usually upbeat demeanor.
  • Children Are Innocent: Sums him up pretty good.
  • The Chosen One: Fans believe that Kibosh wants to make Casper the next leader of the Underworld.


An Egyptian prince.

  • Older Sidekick: Ra is 2500-years-old while Casper is hundreds of years old.
  • Older Than They Look: He appears to be somewhere around Jimmy's age, but he is really almost three thousand years old.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly Man to Casper's Sensitive Guy. Ra is hot-blooded and manly, while Casper is calmer and more effeminate.


Casper's other best creature friend and love interest who is a "Zombie Activist".

  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Masculine Girl to Casper's Feminine Boy.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: She is actually smart and agile. The walking slowly while chanting "Braaains..." routine is just a scare tactic zombies use. And though she does eat brains, it's not all she eats.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Subverted. She wears a pink shirt and her shoes have pink shoelaces but she's rather tomboyish.
  • Purple Eyes: Has purple as her eye color.


The head bully at Scare School and Casper's arch nemesis.

  • 0% Approval Rating: He certainly believes that he's popular, but nobody really seems to like him much. Even his henchman don't know why they hang out with him.
  • Butt-Monkey: In season 2, he gets put through a bit of slapstick. It is often karmic.

Thatch's gang

Thatch's "followers".

Mickey and Monaco

Preppy Skeleton twin girls.

    Scare School Staff 

Alder and Dash

Scare School's headmasters. Dash, the head on the left, is very cunning and intelligent. Alder, the head on the right, is somewhat lacking in the smarts department but has ideas from time to time. But what they have in common is that they are both rude and manipulative.

  • The Leader: Dash is the "smart one" and Alder's leader.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Alder has his moments of pure idiocy at times.
  • You Have Failed Me: In "What Possessed You?", Kibosh sent them to the Chamber of Unspeakable Horrors for failing at turning Casper into a terryfing creature.
  • Genius Ditz: Alder is rather incompetent, though he has his moments where he is the smart one, but not normally.


Scare School's gym teacher.

Hedy Hopper

Scare School's history teacher.

    Other Creatures 

Ghostly Trio

Casper's uncles and caregivers.


The much feared leader of the Underworld.

  • Bad Boss: He once threatened to close Scare School unless Professor Burns performed his party trick for him.
  • Berserk Button: Creatures being friendly/not being scary and to a minor extent being interrupted then talking.
  • Meaningful Name: He is determined to put the kibosh on Casper's friendliness.
  • The Dreaded: To all humans and creatures (except Casper).
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid/Not So Different: He used to be a friendly ghost like Casper when he was his age.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Played with. He was never seen hurting a student. However, he has made things that would have hurt or even killed the students in season 1, plus Alder and Dash implied that Kibosh gives the students the same hideous punishments he gives to adult creatures, although Kibosh believes he is doing what's best for his people.
  • You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry
