Ghost (DK series)
DK: King of Swing
Ghosts debut in DK: King of Swing, appearing in the level Ship of Souls. They float around a set area until they spot Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong, at which point they will start approaching them, fading in and out. In their opaque statue, ghosts can damage the Kongs upon contact, but can also be defeated with a charge. When translucent, they can be safely passed through.
DK: Jungle Climber
Ghosts return in DK: Jungle Climber, appearing in the level Spooky Woods. They are now visible only when Donkey Kong is moving, and stay invisible in every other circumstance. If Donkey Kong gets too close to one, it will scare him away without damaging him.
