|“||When the moon waxes terrible, aethereal harmonies begin to cascade through the hollow grottos of the Cove and out into the surrounding environs, haunting the dreams of any and all who dwell nearby with visions of mossy crevices and the unspeakable horrors of the sea. In the comfort of bright candlelight, mariners speak of briny corpses rising from the depths and taking up a barnacled bow to draw out faded memories of revelries long since past. In these melodies there is no joy or reverie to be found, only madness and death. To sing and dance along to the tune of the tottering Squiffy Ghast is to quicken the heart to bursting and forsake all attachment to wholesome, surface-dwelling life. What fate then, for those hapless souls whose ill-charted course leads them to dance forever in the aphotic shadows?||„|

The Squiffy Ghast is an enemy that only appears in Champion-tier expeditions in the Cove. The Squiffy Ghast fights with his madness-inducing music, sliding to the very front of the enemy ranks before unleashing a powerful piece that inflicts Horror upon its audience, much like how the player's own Jesters prepare and unleash their Finales.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
The Squiffy Ghast starts battles off in the back ranks. Its first turn it will use Maddening Shanty to move itself to the front. On its next turn it will use Offkilter Jig to send itself to the backlines. However, Offkilter Jig also inflicts Horror on your heroes. This is a unique status that works like Blight and Bleed, but deals 5 Stress damage for the next 4 rounds.
If there are only two enemies left on the field, including Squiffy Ghast himself, he will only use Maddening Shanty. This attack is guaranteed to target the Jester if you have one in your team.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Squiffy Ghast's attacks are programmed to move him forward and back 4 positions. This is despite only requiring to move 3 positions to always end up in the first and fourth positions after executing each move respectively.
- Maddening Shanty is the only attack in the game which is programmed to target a specific hero class, the Jester, exclusively if you have him in your team.
- There is the "Mine Goes to 11" achievement for killing a Squiffy Ghast with a Jester. This achievement is named after a scene from the film "This is Spın̈al Tap".
