The Goast [1] is the ghost of a male goat.


During an autumn season, the Goast manifested in Central Park near the Strawberry Fields memorial. In a rare instance, the Ghost Smashers took on the Goast pro bono. However, their streams failed to atomize it and it became agitated. Peter Venkman and Ray Stantz were nearby and detected the Goast on the P.K.E. Meter by chance. They arrived and trapped the entity before it could retaliate against the Ghost Smashers.


The Goast is a Class 6 entity. [2] [3] [4]


  • The Goast's name is a portmanteau of goat and ghost.
