Ghost Portals are a form of transportation in the Danny Phantom Universe. As the name implies, they are portals that serve as a gateway between Earth and the Ghost Zone. With specific modifications, ghost portals can serve as pathways to other dimensions as well.


The Ghost Portal works by opening a dimensional rift to the Ghost Zone, which can then access other dimensions if the user wishes to go that far. The energy released from a Ghost Portal can bind ghost-like properties to human DNA if direct contact is made.

Known Ghost Portals

Fenton Works

This is the one seen in 5 Years Later. It is located in Fenton Works and was created by Danny's father. Danny's father started the work onto the portal to give it the ability to open pathways to other dimensions. He later gave up on it and Danny finished his work. It served as Danny's way to gain access to the Null Void. This led to him meeting Ben for the first time.


This Ghost Portal was created by Vladco. It's briefly seen in Chapter 2. It works the same as the Fenton Works Ghost Portal.

Plumbers Base

Plumber Base Ghost Portal began development in Chapter 2: The Lonely Ghost and was developed by Blukic and Driba, it was completed later on by Cooper in Chapter 8: Risen, and was used by him and the Orion Squad to get to Ben, Danny, Gwen, and Kevin to inform them about the machine the Alliance built and prevent it from activating.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison

This was the Prototype of the Ghost Portal developed by Jack Fenton, Maddie Fenton and Vlad Masters on the campus of The University of Wisconsin-Madison using artificial ecto purifier and various components and scrap from nearby junkyards. On April 17th, 1984 during an attempt to activate it the machine malfunctioned which led to the accident which gave Vlad Masters Ecto-acne and after that his ghost-like abilities.
