Lantern Ghosts are lantern-carrying, shrouded Shy Guys appearing in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, Yoshi's Island DS and Yoshi's New Island. Despite hating the light and loving the dark, Lantern Ghosts can never be found without a lit lantern.
Several Lantern Ghosts appear in the basement of Horror Condo in Mario Party Advance. They are a part of a Toad Force V fan club known as the TFV Fan Club, which includes the group's leader, who asks the player to show them a Toad Force V Figure. Lantern Ghosts are also referenced in Super Princess Peach, whose King Boo battle (as well as the background of Shriek Mansion's map) featured lightposts modeled afterthem.
