[[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.
** However, there are [[FlipFlopOfGod contradictions]] with this statement and the ones given in the series and by the producers about the origins of other ghosts (such as Ember, Desiree, and the Dairy King) as well as Maddie's definition of ghosts ("odd manifestation of ectoplasmic energy and post-human consciousness"). So perhaps only ''some'' of them are the spirits of the dead.
*** So far there appears to be three types of ghost: The first appears to be spirits of the dead (Ember, Box Ghost, etc), ghosts that are personification of concepts (Nocturn, Clockwork, etc), and naturally existing ectoplasmic creatures (ectopus, Wulf, etc).
* 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 (though WordOfGod later revealed that the Heaven and Hell parts of the afterlife are the Elsewhereness and the Unworld respectively); 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.
* HandBlasts: 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 fans 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?
* NoSell: For half-ghosts. Their human half makes them immune/resistant to things that affect ghosts (ex. ghost shields, Danny's ghost sense, MindControl over ghosts), while their ghost half make them immune/resistant to other ghosts' powers that affect humans, like Ember's MagicMusic.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Most of the ghosts diverge from mainstream paranormal expectations.
** Though [[JustifiedTrope justified]] since most of them 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.
