The Ghost is an unkillable melee enemy introduced in the final level of Spear of Destiny.

TacticsEdit

On the outside the Ghost doesn't seem like a very threatening enemy.  It moves relatively slowly, has no ranged attack, and is stopped by very little firepower.  The true challenge of the Ghosts becomes apparent, however, in their sheer numbers and their ability to regenerate and continue pursuing you. The Ghost doesn't drop any ammo and can potentially pursue the player throughout an entire level which can create a desperate situation where gunning them down is done as infrequently as possible to preserve ammo.  Shooting the ghosts becomes more necessary the more they gang up on the player.

Because they have more health than dogs and their melee attack is instantaneous dealing with them with a knife is ill advised.

Instruction Booklet DescriptionEdit

From The Official Spear of Destiny Hint Book:

Guarding The Angel of Death's lair are ghostly phantoms with an appetite for human flesh.
Ghost [sic] are slow, but their touch is deadly. They can be stopped with a single bullet, but in a matter of seconds they'll reappear.

From The Return to Danger Instruction Booklet:

Loyal to Hitler even in death - the ghosts of the dead SS patrol the final floor!
The ghosts have the touch of death - contact with them will drain the life out of you! Shooting them will make them disappear briefly- but they soon resurrect to continue their relentless pursuit!
Be cautious when preoccupied with battling the Devil Incarnate - a ghost is likely to sneak up behind you meaning almost certain death!
