Danny Phantom Wiki
Not to be confused with: Shapeshifting and Transformation.

Going Ghost is the ability of half-ghosts to transform between human and ghost at will.


Rings extend from the center of the user's body and sweep in opposite directions as the body transforms from human to ghost. The rings are typically oriented so that they sweep vertically across the user's body, though they can take on other orientations.

The coloration of these rings varies from user to user; for example, Danny Phantom's rings are blue-white in color, while Vlad Plasmius's are black and white.

Whenever the user generate their ghost clothes over their human clothes they also put away the additional clothes they get when they go ghost. Various times, Danny has put on lots of other ghost disguises that disappear when he switches back to human form.


  • In most cases the user loses the transformation by getting knocked out or losing too much energy.
  • If the user has little experience it can consume a lot of energy when transforming or is not controlled, the user can lose the transformation involuntarily, being able to reveal his identity (in the case of wanting to hide it) to those who observe him.
  • In Identity Crisis, Both Danny's halves Super Danny and Fun Danny were able to stay in their ghost forms under the Fenton ghost shield, but full Danny was unable to go ghost in/under the ghost shield in "Pirate Radio." However, it could be possible that Danny can't go ghost while being in human form under a anti-ghost shield and can stay in ghost form while in/under a anti-ghost shield.
