Doomsday Ghosts are ghosts that originate from within the Doomsday Door.
After doomsday plunged Earth into eternal darkness, the Doomsday Door was set to open and release poltergeist energy. The energy would then replace the physical world with a more supernatural version. The Doomsday Ghosts would also be released and govern the new world.
They appeared earlier than doomsday in the New York subway. Some are shown to be able to fly. The Ghostbusters didn't directly deal with the ghosts, however the Proton Streams brought the ghosts back into the Power Flow Core.
