Snarg[2] is the mother to Zonk and wife to Slug. She appears to be the smartest of the three, however she always relies on Slug.


Snarg is the maternal entity in a trio of ghosts. They appear to originate from New Jersey, according to the P.K.E. Meter readings taken while they haunted a Conrad's chocolate plant.[3] The Ghostbusters eventually captured them after a lengthy bust, but they escaped from the Containment Unit. Slug desired revenge and set up a fake paranormal eliminations and investigation business to bankrupt the Ghostbusters. Slug and Snarg disguised themselves as paranormal investigators and pretended to capture Zonk on busts.

As his plan went on, Slug decided to escalate things and seek out an old friend named Turlock. They arrived at an abandoned toy factory in Brooklyn, a known dwelling of Turlock. Instead, Slug awoke and angered a Free Roaming Vapor that turned out to be a Full Magnitude Class 10. It pursued Slug and his family across the Brooklyn Bridge. The Ghostbusters recaptured them and then focused on the Class 10. Slug and the family were later part of the entities that witnessed the arrival of Egon Spengler into the Containment Unit universe when he was in search of the Ghost of Christmas Future, Ghost of Christmas Past, and Ghost of Christmas Present.


Snarg acts like a typical mother.


Shapeshifting: Just like Slug, she can alter her appearance.

Flight: She can also fly, just like the other ghosts on the show.


Snarg is a Class 5 Full Torso Apparition.[4]
