​​Ghoul Slugs (aka Ghouls & Goons) were Slugs that have been corrupted by one of the various forms of "ghouling" using Dark Energy. Ghoul Slugs can be turned back into regular Slugs by healer Slugs or The Lightwell. Dr. Blakk uses a small machine that gases a Slug and then transforms it. Some SlugSlingers prefer Ghouls over Slugs because they are more powerful than standard Slugs, even though Ghouls are hard to control and prone to running away once fired from a blaster.

While Ghouls are stronger than regular Slugs, it has been seen that a highly trained Slug can defeat them. This indicates that Ghouls are not automatically stronger than Slugs, as seen in "The Trade", where Blakk offers to give Eli his Slug back in a stronger state. Overall, the strength of a Ghoul is dependent on the overall strength of the Slug's original power. A Ghoul can probably get stronger through training like normal Slugs, though this is unconfirmed.

When Ghoul are shot out of a blaster, they tend to run off and form wild packs but this does not seem to line up with the show where C.C. is seen calling his scattered Ghouls back by a whistling.  It is possible that the Ghouling process makes Slugs less likely to listen to their Slinger, requiring a stronger bond in order to control them.

It has been seen that the creation of Ghouls can cause devastating effects on Slugs. One such case would be Burpy in the episode "Lightwell", whose power was quickly being drained by the dark energy of Ghouls making him very sick and unable to transform when shot out of a blaster, forcing him to visit the Lightwell.

As seen in "Back to Blakk" a large number of Ghouls can open a portal for the Darkbane, but only four can pass through and the first ghoul was actually a Greneater.

  • All Ghoul Slugs are Dark Shadow elements.
  • Ghouled Healers cause severe sickness, instead of healing, and possibly even kill.
  • Ghouls tend to have longer arms than regular Slugs.
  • Ghouls all have sharper and longer teeth then their normal slug counterparts.
  • Ghouls were similar to Dark Spectrobes from Spectrobes and Dark Invizimals from Invizimals.
    • Dark Invisimals normally are like other Invisimal's requiring them to be corrupted, like Ghouls, except that the Dark Invisimals are already in a "Darker" form before being corrupted.
  • In The Fall of the Eastern Champion, Junjie introduces other word for "Ghouls" and calls them "Goons", which was probably why they called The Goon, The Goon.
