Three of the four Ghostbusters (Patty Tolan, Abby Yates, and Jillian Holtzmann) encountered six ghost balloons on the way to The Mercado Hotel. The first five were easily dealt with by standard Proton equipment. However, the last balloon, Stay Puft withstood the blasts and landed on them and they couldn't move to fire at it. It bellowed until Erin Gilbert arrived and popped the Stay Puft ghost balloon with her Swiss Army Knife.
- The balloon is of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. In this continuity, Stay Puft Marshmallows is also a brand name product. There is an ad for the marshmallows in Times Square later in the chapter.
- ↑ Narrator (2016). Simon & Schuster- "Ghostbuster's Handbook" (2016) (Book p.77). Page reads: "One of the balloons was a Class VI possession in the shape of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man with (obvious) temporal displacement."
