Grabbing Ghosts are slim but long eel like ghosts. They come in grey, red, blue, and purple. Grey ones have 10 health but deal no damage. Red ones have 20 health but are able to deal damage. Blue and Purple Grabbing Ghosts are invisible but their shadows can be seen. They also have 20 health and deals damage. Once they grab on, the player must shake the control stick to lose them.
