The Giant Goldfish was created by Elwin Spalding as a ironic twist in a old college frat game. Elwin shot a beam from his fingertip and caused a goldfish to enlarge into a behemoth. Elwin and two fellow Fraternity of the Dead members grabbed and threw Dudley, Specs and Willis into the fish's open mouth. Before a fourth student could be swallowed by the oversized goldfish, the Ghostbusters neutralized the fish. Dudley, Specs and Willis were unharmed.
