Lantern Ghosts are lantern-carrying specters 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. They closely resemble Shy Guys and Duplighosts. 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 were also referenced in Super Princess Peach, whose King Boo battle (as well as the background of Shriek Mansion's map) featured lightposts clearly modeled after Lantern Ghosts.
