These are the creepiest video game ghosts we’ve encountered so far.
With so many ways to get your horror gaming on during the month of October, it’s no surprise that we’re ranking the creepiest video game ghosts of all time. Here are the 10 video game ghosts we think are creepier than any other.

10. Dampé (The Legend of Zelda)
The Legend of Zelda is supposed to be a lovable series full of charm and whimsy; we do not embark on Link’s latest quest expecting skin-crawling creepiness.
Recurring across the franchise, Dampé is the resident headliner of chills. He skulks around any graveyard in the series, and spouts creepy one-liners that leave you feeling less that safe around him. He’s mostly harmless, but still really creepy.
9. The Crawling Girl (Fatal Frame)
The Fatal Frame series has enough ghosts to fill up two full lists itself, but for the sake of this creepiest video game ghosts list, we’re sticking with the crème de la crème of creepiness in video games. The crawling girl is one of the most goosebump-inducing ghosts from the series.
What is it about little girls and creepy crawling that gets our hearts beating in fear? Maybe it’s the fact that this ghost’s terrifying scream is literally paralyzing.
8. The Blinded (Fatal Frame)
This is a creepy ghost simply for the fact that she was so fast, she could grab you before you even knew what hit you. She was one of the harder bosses in the game, sensing any sort of noise your character made.
Imaging tip-toeing around a room, thinking you’re being quiet, then having this ghost jump out and grab you. Seriously, it was terrifying every…single…time.
7. Alma Wade (F.E.A.R.)
This game has the same issue as Fatal Frame – more ghosts than you can shake a stick at. That doesn’t stop the ghosts from being absolutely soul-shattering, however, and Alma Wade is one of those ghosts.
She’s basically a Carrie-esque style ghost with psyonic powers, bloody eyes, and a nasty streak to boot. She’s the main protagonist and will scare the pants off of you.
6. The Walrider (Outlast)
If Batman: Arkham Asylum taught us anything, it’s that traversing a mental hospital alone is creepy. Outlast takes this concept and kicks it up a notch with the Walrider. This ghost is a skeletal spirit behind the madness of the inmates.
This is absolutely chilling because the Walrider represents the idea that your mental stability is tangible. It can so easily break at the hands of external stimulus, reminding us that our mortality and sanity are completely reliant on those around us.
