  • Coblynau: Coblynau are spirits of dead miners that inhabit mines, knocking on the walls to warn the miners of danger. Traditionally they were good-natured, though could be controlled to do evil.
  • Banshees: Banshees are vengeful female spirits that hail from Ireland.
  • Dybbuks: Dybbuks are a type of malevolent spirits from Jewish mythology.
  • Spectre: A spectre is a rare type of spirit that is in tone with the energies of the multiverse, and the Speed Force, allowing them to travel dimensions at will and appear alive. The Spectres also possess powers to manipulate energy, matter, and antimatter to defend the multiverse or recreate it should it be destroyed. Due to the sheer amount of power they possess, the Spectres can be considered one of the most powerful beings in the multiverse. So far only to Spectres have been known; Jim Corrigan and Oliver Queen. However, the latter's status as a ghost is unclear, as he was still able to die, implying that Spectres can manifest a physical living form imbued with vast and near-limitless power even if their original body has been destroyed as was the case for Oliver since the Anti-Matter wave destroyed his original body completely, alongside the pre-crisis multiverse.
