The Ghostbusters of Dimension 35-N[1][2] are a parallel version of the Ghostbusters who resemble vintage video game sprites.


A group of five Household Spirits in Dimension 35-N did something unique. They considered New York City to be their household.[3] They took on appearances similar to the Ghostbusters and Slimer of the prime dimension and were inspired enough to take on the names Stantzor, Zeddema, Venk, and Glereg. The one resembling Slimer took the name Jim.[4][5] There were still creatures of magic and used magic to bust ghosts rather than technology.[6] Despite their small size, they packed a significant amount of power and were fiercely loyal to their duty.[7] Still, they were impish in personality and demanded to be treated with respect like typical Household Spirits.[8] Once Proteus created the Cerberus Manifestation to search for The Real Ghostbusters of Dimension 68-R, the entity started searching the multiverse. One of the portals it passed over led to 35-N.

The Ghostbusters of the prime dimension initially concluded Dimension 35-N had no Ghostbusters and thus, no significant spectral activity. During one of his exploratory trips to 35-N, Peter Venkman went to watch the undefeated New York Jets. A Class 5 manifested during the game but Peter watched as it was taken down by that dimension's Ghostbusters.[9] During the course of contact, it was discovered they communicated empathically but could also write.[10] The two teams communicated directly with pen and paper. It was also observed they made sounds when they became frustrated. The prime dimension Ghostbusters wanted to study their methods and habits more fully, with their permission, when time allowed.

Egon Spengler, of the prime dimension, asked the Ghostbusters of 35-N for their help in retrieving ghosts that escaped from the Containment Unit and escaped into the multiverse. All of the teams involved in the operation gathered in the Warehouse. A field team consisting of Mike the Golem and Robo-Buster from Dimension 68-V and the Ghostbusters of Dimension 35-N tracked down the Bone Dragon to a location resembling Chinatown in a parallel dimension. The Ghostbusters stood on top of a construction barricade and fired. They easily wrangled the ghost. On Mike's call, Robo-Buster deployed a Trap-Gate from its chest. It reported the ghost was transferred to the Containment Unit and 20 percent of the missing psychokinetic energy was returned but they ran out of Trap-Gates. Venk stood on Mike's shoulder while the other three perched on Robo-Buster's shoulders and head. Jim continued levitating. Mike acknowledged he knew they were out of Trap-Gates. Venk said something in its language. Mike became annoyed, said he knew that, too, and called it stupid then opened a portal back to the prime dimension with his Remote Portal Access Band. Venk responded. Mike told it not to talk to him like that and asserted they were doing fine. Upon returning to the Warehouse, Venk declared something. Mike translated it declared they kicked a dragon's ass and added the sprites didn't lift a finger. Venk and Glereg stood atop the console being watched by Zoe Zawadzki and Kevin Tanaka and Jim levitated around while Stantzor and Zeddema stood on Mike's shoulders when Ron Alexander came through the teleportation unit portal.


The Ghostbusters look similar to the original Ghostbusters and Slimer but are only a few inches high.


The Ghostbusters are Class 3 entities like all Household Spirits.
