"Obake Yashiki BGM" in Super Mario World
|First appearance||Super Mario World (1990)|
|Latest appearance||The Super Mario Bros. Movie (2023)|
"Obake Yashiki BGM" is a musical theme composed for Super Mario World by Koji Kondo. It is a slower and more eerie and foreboding arrangement of the Super Mario World "Ground Theme" similar to "Castle" that plays in the game's Ghost House levels and the Sunken Ghost Ship.
The following list does not include ports or remakes of Super Mario World.

Super Mario series
Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2

Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3
In Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3, an arrangement of "Obake Yashiki BGM" can be heard in the e-Reader levels Doors o' Plenty and Vexing Doors. This arrangement is very similar to the one heard in Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2.

The beginning of the music heard in Ghost House levels in New Super Mario Bros. uses a similar compositional technique as "Obake Yashiki BGM", beginning with the eerie high notes fading in. The rest of it, however, is completely different.

Super Mario Maker
In Super Mario Maker 2, "Obake Yashiki BGM" is given an original, more ambient arrangement for editing Ghost House-themed courses in the Course Maker, using eight tracks that fade in and out randomly to create a dynamic mix.
The theme also receives new percussion parts for when Mario rides a Yoshi in the Super Mario World style, as this was impossible in such levels in the original game. Like other themes in the original Super Mario World, the theme adds bongos to the instrumentation in its "Yoshi" variation.
