When Danny inadvertently enthuses himself with ectoplasm, he gets the ability to transform into the spectral Danny Phantom which also unlocks his powers. As a normal boy, he has black hair, blue eyes, and usually wears a white shirt and blue jeans. But, as Danny Phantom, everything appears in a negative color and he has white hair, green eyes, and a black and white jumpsuit. As if fighting supernatural beings isn’t enough, Danny also has to avoid and hide his identity from his ghost-hunting parents. But, with the help of his overprotective sister and his friends, Tucker and Sam, he always manages to pull through, eventually even mutually falling in love with Sam along the way.

Ember Mclain is one of Danny Phantom’s most tragic villains. As an unpopular teenager, she waited up all night for a date that stood her up. She was so tired that when she finally went to sleep, she didn’t wake up when her house burned down. She returns as a rockstar ghost and wants to take revenge the whole world to love by enslaving everyone using her mind control powers through her performances. She even bewitches Danny but her spell over everyone is momentarily broken by the awful singing of Danny’s friend Tucker. Bested and banished to the Ghost Zone by Danny, her vocal cords are damaged and she becomes overweight waiting for her chance to get revenge once again.
