Ghostfreak is a phantom/ghost-like alien with claw like hands. He has grey skin with black lines running all over it. This skin is removable, which will reveal Ghostfreak's tentacles and his true form.
In Ultimate Alien, Ghostfreak looks like the Ectonurites from Ghost Town, but is more muscular. His eye is bigger and green, and the spikes on his elbows are gone. Ghostfreak wears the Ultimatrix symbol on his chest instead of inside his skin.
In Omniverse, 16-year old Ghostfeak appears to now have green chains all over his front side which lead to his neck, waist, and center/chest. The spikes on his elbows have returned and his skin is now a greenish white. He also has two cuffs on each of his arms. The Omnitrix symbol is located at the center of his chains. His voice has returned to the faint and whispering kind. When possessing someone, he has a green glow. He also appears to have a mouth because of the lines on his face.
Despite Zs'Skayr having his skull turned right-side-up in Omniverse, Ghostfreak's skull remains upside-down.
Powers and Abilities
Ghostfreak's powers are composed of several aspects of traditional ghosts from myths and lore, such as hovering and phasing through solid matter, making his intangibility a powerful defense as well as a means of infiltrating high-security locations. He has shown himself capable of making other objects or people intangible as well through physical contact.
Ghostfreak has enhanced strength, durability, agility, and speed. He also possesses the power of flight, a movable eye, invisibility and space survivability. Ghostfreak is able to possess the bodies of his enemies and control their movements, allowing him to freely slam them against walls or hit themselves. He can also access the abilities of other superpowered beings. In the case of Darkstar, he also had access to his powers once he possessed him.
Ghostfreak can also use the tentacles under his protective skin as a means of scaring his enemies into submission. However, Ghostfreak has also been seen using them to grab heavy objects, such as a bus full of people. The tentacles also appear to be resistant towards sun light, which is shown when Ghostfreak saved the people on the bus with his tentacles without burning.
Ghostfreak's true form, without his protective skin, has telekinetic abilities, as seen in Ghost Town, when he fought against Vilgax using only his telekinetic abilities with energy beam projection. His true form also has sharp teeth and claws, as well as an inverted skull. His outer skin protects him from burning in the sunlight.
Ghostfreak is immune to Darkstar's energy absorption ability, as he is a ghost-like alien and thus has no life energy to absorb.
Ghostfreak can rotate his skull.
Much like other intangible beings, certain substances can neutralize Ghostfreak's intangibility and his invisibility, as seen in Hunted, when Kraab neutralized Ghostfreak's intangibility and invisibility with a special, orange-colored liquid.
Ghostfreak's second skin inhibits many of his powers, but removing it makes him vulnerable to sunlight.
Though he is able to fly, he is not very fast in the air, and therefore must rely on his intangibility and invisibility to evade attacks.
In the original series, Ghostfreak's DNA was linked to the conscience, memories, and personality of Zs'Skayr, who took over Ben and freed himself after the Omnitrix timed out, making Ghostfreak a dangerous alien to use. However, Ghostfreak now exists independently from Zs'Skayr, complete with Ben's personality, so this is no longer an issue.
His intangibility is useless when faced by another species that can go intangible.

- 4" Ghostfreak
- According to Ben in the original series, he was always creeped out when he was Ghostfreak and was still was scared to transform into Ghostfreak 6 years later (especially after the Zs'Skayr incident), but when he transforms into Ghostfreak in Mystery, Incorporeal, he states that he feels like himself, suggesting that he is no longer in danger of being taken over by Zs'Skayr.
- Ghostfreak makes a small cameo in the game FusionFall, inside the Dizzy World Infected Zone.
- Ghostfreak is the only alien to have different designs in all 4 series.
- He replaces Shocksquatch in the intro for Omniverse's Arc 5 (the part with Toepick, Astrodactyl, and Bullfrag)
- In Mystery, Incorporeal, it is revealed that Ghostfreak, and other Ectonurites, don't have mana in them (as mana is life energy, and Ectonurites are not alive in the same way that most sapient lifeforms are).
- Ghostfreak was used in all 4 series of Ben 10, as were Diamondhead, Cannonbolt, Upchuck, and Way Big.
- When Zs'Skayr broke out of the Omnitrix, Ghostfreak became the first alien to be removed from it, until he was taken back in Be Afraid of the Dark. Prior to Alien Force, however, he was removed from the Omnitrix, along with Zs'Skayr.
