Stay Puft Ghost Balloon was one in the group of ghost balloons that appeared as a obstacle for the Ghostbusters. He appeared in the 2016 movie.


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.
