  • Behaviors:
    • Attacks: Melee, Range, Rush
    • Weaknesses: Slime


Possessed Humans are innocent bystanders possessed and controlled by Class III Possessor Ghosts. Slime Blower will drive Possessor Ghosts out of their human victims but beware, its lingering PK resonance is not enough to prevent Possessors from repossessing anyone already slimed.

Contact Protocol:

Possessed Humans don't pose much, if any, real threat. Use your Slime Blower to drive the Possessor Ghost out of its human host, then get to work on the Possessor Ghost.

Manifestation Point:

Stylized Version Information

According to Tobin's Spirit Guide

  • Category: None
  • Abilities: None

Tobin's Summary:

Certain ghosts have the ability to control living beings. To carry out this vile act, the spectre in question literally flies into its victim. At this point, a sort of ectoplasmic metastasis occurs, allowing the ghost to spread its presence throughout the body and exert its will over the muscles of the host. The degree of articulation with which the ghost can puppet its victim is dependent on the intellectual resonance of the spectre. A "smarter" and more coherent ghost will be able to mimic human (or animal) behavior more accurately, while a less advanced spectre will only be able to render the host immobile.

Egon's Notes:

This is truly one of the more frightening abilities that ghosts possess. Not only is there the implication of losing control of your own body, but with the more advanced specters, you cannot be sure who is your ally and who might be host to a malevolent being.

Ray's Tips:

Most ghosts aren't strong enough to pull off this trick, but when it happens, human possession is always nasty. Trust me, I know! Slime from the Slime Blower, applied directly to the unfortunate victim, is the only reliable way to force the ghost out.

Supplemental Data

Secondary Canon History

IDW Comics

Chi-You blasted several wedding guests and Casey Jones with energy and learned he had remotely possessed them. He had control of their bodies and minds. [1] Through Casey's mind, Chi-You instantaneously learned to speak in modern English and learned who the Turtles were. In turn, he manipulated the possessed humans and made them take martial arts stances but they were interrupted by the arrival of the Ghostbusters. The possessed humans soon displayed remarkable acrobatic feats under Chi-You's control. They dodged the Ghostbusters' attacks and escaped the church. On a rooftop, Chi-You recognized them as peasants unworthy of serving in his army. He released his hold on all of them, except Casey. Coming to, they saw Chi-You and ran to the roof access. In search of real warriors, Chi-You took control of NHL players at the Madison Square Garden. He further shared his power and transmogrified them into his thralls. Chi-You modified his control over Casey by the act of swallowing him, in reality enveloping him inside an adaptable ectoplasmic casing that allowed for finely tuned manipulation of the corporeal form. [2]
