In Ghost Mode there are two teams: Ghosts and Runners. The Ghosts need to capture and convert all runners into Ghosts before the time runs out. Ghosts only have one life, if they die they can't come back. Runners either need to kill all the Ghosts or wait until the time runs out to win.
- Due to the nature of the game mode, lagging players can often have more of an advantage in Ghost Tag over other modes due to the difficulty in being cought.
- In some media/versions Ghosts are reffered to as "Zombies".
