Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (The Real Ghostbusters)
- View history
The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man has varied in the series from a villain to a hero but rarely displayed the same level of malevolence as it did in the original film - perhaps due to the fact that it was no longer one of Gozer's forms, the most noticeable examples being in The Real Ghostbusters .

Biography [ ]
The real ghostbusters [ ].
Due to the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man's extreme popularity with fans and his iconic status he was destined to return in the Ghostbusters cartoon series - though this version of Stay Puft was much more benevolent than the movie version, in fact the cartoon version of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man was often a heroic figure rather than an antagonist: though there were a few exceptions to this rule where the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man was back to his usual villainous ways.
The opening credits of The Real Ghostbusters showed the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man as a central figure amongst the horde of ghosts that were promptly "busted" by the group - this version of Stay Puft was shown as rather menacing despite the fact he was rarely a villain in the actual show (as mentioned above). In fact, he has even assisted the Ghostbusters on two occasions in the episodes Sticky Business , and The Revenge of Murray the Mantis respectively.
Ghostbusters video games [ ]
The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is a boss in several Ghostbusters video games including Ghostbusters: The Video Game . In both the stylized and realistic versions of this game, Stay Puft has the ability to spawn smaller marshmallow-based monsters, a power that the original Stay Puft Marshmallow Man never displayed before. Despite this, this version of Stay Puft has been described in-game to be neither as big or as powerful than the one in the film.
Ghostbusters (2016 film) [ ]
In the 2016 reboot Ghostbusters , Stay Puft returned as a parade balloon with the ghosts controlling him, which falls and lands on Abby, Jillian and Patty. It is later popped by Erin.
Fall Guys [ ]
In Fall Guys , a costume of a Fall Guy covered in small Stay Puft Marshmallow Men was added to the game as part of the game's second F2P season, being among one of the five Ghostbusters -themed cosmetics introduced for the its 2022 Halloween event.
Planet Coaster [ ]
In Planet Coaster , a crossover DLC was released, containing Stay Puft Marshmellows, a placeable marshmellow man object, and the Marshmellow Man as an entertainer.

Stay Puft Marshmallow Man
Fictional character from ghostbusters / from wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, dear wikiwand ai, let's keep it short by simply answering these key questions:.
Can you list the top facts and stats about Stay Puft Marshmallow Man?
Summarize this article for a 10 years old
The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man is a fictional character from the Ghostbusters franchise , who sometimes appears as a giant, lumbering and paranormal monster. He first appears in the 1984 Ghostbusters film as a logo on a bag of marshmallows in Dana Barrett's apartment, on an advertisement on a building near the Ghostbusters' headquarters, and finally as the physical manifestation and form of the apocalyptic Sumerian deity Gozer .
Gozer returns in this form multiple times; however, the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man in The Real Ghostbusters animated series is the manifestation of the dream of a child holding a bag of Stay-Puft Marshmallows during the attack by The Sandman.
Subsequently, he has been incorporated into many other types of Ghostbusters media, including the animated series The Real Ghostbusters , comic books, a stage show, and several video games.

Stay Puft Marshmallow Man
- View history
Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (also known as Stay Puft or nicknamed Tubby Soft-Squeeze by Ray and Peter) was the final enemy the Ghostbusters faced in the first Ghostbusters movie. It was Gozer's form for The Destructor, when Ray borrowed the idea by thinking of a "just pop in there" logo for a company.

History [ ]
Ghostbusters [ ].
Gozer defiantly told the Ghostbusters to choose the Destructor's form, and Ray Stantz "chose" the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man as that form. Everyone else claimed that they had emptied their minds, but Ray admitted that he tried to think of something totally harmless that could never possibly destroy them. As a child, Ray used to roast Stay Puft Marshmallows over the campfires at Camp Waconda. The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man was simply the mascot character for the Stay Puft brand. His accidental choice resulted in Gozer manifesting himself in the form of a 100-foot-tall killer marshmallow man determined to destroy the Ghostbusters, New York, and the entire world.
The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man passed Columbus Circle into the Shandor Building and sent civilians into total panic. He crushed a nearby church before attempting to climb 550 Central Park West. After the Ghostbusters tried to destroy it with their Proton Packs, Stay Puft caught fire and nearly burned the Ghostbusters. As it climbed up the building, the boys then decided to cross their proton streams into the Gozer temple to transfer the particle stream through the entrance portal. Stay Puft made it to the top and narrowly missed catching the Ghostbusters. He watched in horror as the Ghostbusters' streams crossed toward the temple. The Gozer Temple, part of the building, and Stay Puft completely exploded. Abundant marshmallow residue rained down all over the nearby streets, drenching thousands of citizens, and a huge lump fell directly on Walter Peck.
Ghostbusters II [ ]
In late 1989,Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore "remembered" Stay Puft after performing at a child's birthday party.
Ghostbusters: The Video Game [ ]
During the start of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in 1991, Stay Puft returned to the physical plane. Due to the Cult of Gozer's manipulations with the Mandala, Gozer was able to manifest again. And again, in the form of Stay Puft, this time by sweeping Times Square. Ray wondered why Gozer again assumed the form of the Marshmallow Man, since surely there are more effective forms of world destruction that it could have taken. Ray ends up theorizing that there is "one Destroyer Form per god per dimension", which means that Gozer can only assume this form in the Earth dimension. It is identified as a Class VII Outsider Avatar and a Deity (a supreme being). Due to the complications Gozer faced in penetrating the human realm, the Destroyer Form was not even as powerful as its original incarnation, which would seem to be confirmed by being finally outmatched by the firepower of a single Ghostbuster, the Rookie, who used the Boson Dart, a new feature added to the Proton Pack, against the god. Keeping Puft weaker than it was before may also explain why the Ghostbusters originally planned to trap him in the Ecto-1b's Super Slammer Muon trap.
During his assault of destruction, he demonstrated a new power: the ability to spawn numerous Mini Stay Pufts, minor marshmallow minions formed from his own residue. Gozer tried to capture Ilyssa Selwyn in order to sacrifice her and become stronger, but ultimately failed. Unable to reach its full potential, the Stay Puft Destroyer Form was destroyed, covering all the surrounding buildings and streets in a hot shower of marshmallows. His giant hat also fell on a building, where he was last seen hanging.
The Real Ghostbusters [ ]
The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man also appeared in a number of episodes of the Real Ghostbusters cartoon series. Unlike in the film, he was not simply an avatar of Gozer, but was his own entity entirely. He was also not always an antagonist, as in some of his appearances in the show, he would actually help the Ghostbusters fight even greater threats.
Mr. Stay Puft's alignment and intelligence seemed to shift with each episode. When he first appeared in the episode "Cry Uncle" , he went on a rampage across New York until being recaptured by the Ghostbusters. In the episodes that followed, he had supposedly been "rehabilitated" and was no longer the savage, angry destroyer he had once been. On one occasion, he helped to save New York by fighting against Murray the Mantis . On other occasions, he was shown to be capable of speech.
Classification [ ]
The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is a Class 7 Outsider Avatar (alternatively a Class 7 Avatar Manifestation in the stylized version of Ghostbusters: The Video Game ) as evidenced when it was scanned during the Shandor Incident in 1991.
Originally, Stay Puft was believed to be a Deity (supreme being). In his file with the Paranormal Contracts Supervision Commission, Stay Puft is stated to be an entry homunculus with psychokinetic charge and ectoplasmic animation. It was also said that with each formation, Gozer energy signatures were accompanied by physical readings from Stay Puft. More and more latent psychokinetic energy was introduced into the creature to make up for Gozer's deficiencies, so Stay Puft became more and more a separate entity from Gozer. Potentially being animated with energies without any willpower makes Stay Puft more vulnerable to domination by intelligent powers other than Gozer. In theory, ghosts of class 5 and up, which are capable of animating physical mass and attracting P.K.E. latent of the environment could take control of Stay Puft.

The Mind-Blowing Way Ghostbuster's Stay Puft Scene Was Actually Filmed
The newly released " Ghostbusters: Afterlife " is as much a continuation of the " Ghostbusters " franchise as it is a love letter to the series as a whole – and with all the Easter eggs and callbacks that director Jason Reitman included in "Afterlife," it's worth taking a look back at the movie that started it all.
When "Ghostbusters" launched in 1984, it became a cultural phenomenon: Proton packs, the Ectomobile, and the iconic Ghostbuster uniform became essential parts of pop culture, and the film's bizarre sense of humor helped establish it as a defining film for an entire generation of moviegoers. There is perhaps no better example of the film's bizarre comedy than the iconic final battle between the Ghostbusters and a gigantic Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man that is terrorizing downtown New York.
The climactic showdown against the giant fluffy marshmallow monster is as intense and action-packed as it is laugh-out-loud silly, and has stuck with audiences for generations after it hit the big screen. It's one of the most memorable and influential scenes in movie history (let alone the "Ghostbuster" franchise itself). In the current age of CGI, it might shock many fans to learn just how difficult it was to film the ambitious battle sequence.
The power of practical special effects
When director Ivan Reitman read Dan Akyroyd's original script, he stated that the movie would be impossible to film due to the ludicrous special effects the story would require — and while it obviously didn't end up being impossible, it was certainly very difficult. In order to correctly represent the scale of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, the set designers actually had to build a 1/18th scale model of downtown New York and fill it with handcrafted model cars built from toys (via CineFix) .
There were several different Marshmallow Man suits constructed for the project, and at least three unique puppeteered Marshmallow heads were sculpted to represent a complete range of emotion on the monster's face. The heads were so complicated that it took four puppeteers to control the monster's face as it lumbered around the set.
As if that weren't complex enough, for the scene where the Marshmallow Man is set on fire and begins scaling a building, the VFX department constructed a fire-retardant version of the suit and a head that could melt realistically in the fire. After the head "melted," the team dumped hundreds of gallons of shaving cream on the life-sized street, enough to a stuntman to the ground.
The emphasis on practical effects and the painstaking detail taken in crafting this scene is a big part of why the final battle continues to hold up remarkably well even to this day.

Do Ghostbusters: Afterlife’s Stay Puft Marshmallow Men Confirm Gozer’s Return?
Ghostbusters: Afterlife’s latest reveal, an army of mini Stay Puft Marshmallow Men, is not only nostalgic, but seemingly points to Gozer.

“I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us: Mr. Stay Puft!”
Ghostbusters: Afterlife just revealed how it will make those words from Dan Aykroyd’s Ray Stantz more prescient—and poetically meta—than ever. The line, from the 1984 original movie, was a contrite explanation for his impulsive decision to choose the now-iconic, pillowy “destroyer” form of ancient evil entity Gozer for its attack on the Big Apple. Now, the 32-years-awaited follow-up to the franchise’s original iteration (last seen with 1989’s Ghostbusters II ,) is bringing back Mr. Stay Puft—miniaturized and multiplied. Thusly, speculation on Gozer’s prospective return is potent.
Paul Rudd ’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife character, summer school teacher Mr. Grooberson, will collide with the original team’s spectral legacy, as indicated in a new teaser clip (seen below). Indeed, some grocery shopping—rife with forensically-framed Baskin Robbins product placement—goes sideways quickly when the search for toppings leads Grooberson to a moving bag of marshmallows—Stay Puft Marshmallows, which apparently survived its monumental PR nightmare—after which a single puff escapes, revealing its resemblance to the pancake-cap-modeling mascot himself, all to the needle drop of Elmer Bernstein’s haunting original movie score. However, the pint-sized snack’s brief display of Baby Yoda vibes abruptly ends when it gnashes its teeth and bites his finger. What follows is an orgy of macabre marshmallow mischief with a runaway Roomba and barbecue grill. While the small town Oklahoma location makes the Gozer connection seem puzzling, it’s actually not.
The 2019-dropped first trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife provided some Gozer-implicit material, notably with the shot of an abandoned property called Shandor Mining Co., which—barring an unnecessary coincidence in Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan’s script—explicitly points to the name of Ivo Shandor . Still not with us? Well, that name was mentioned in key expositional dialogue in the 1984 original movie from Harold Ramis’s Egon Spengler, who explained that Shandor—a wealthy architect and physician—was a cult leader who had Dana Barrett’s fateful apartment building constructed in the 1920s to secretly serve as a doorway for Gozer to enter our world, making it the hub for New York’s wave of supernatural activity. The endeavor—motivated by disillusionment from the First World War—would come to fruition in the events of the first film, decades after Shandor’s death, relegating his presence in the film canon only to Egon’s dialogue. Yet, non-canon offerings such as the 2009 Ghostbusters video game and the recent IDW comic book series utilized Shandor more effectively.

However, the mine and newly-revealed army of mini Stay Pufts aren’t the only things in Afterlife pointing to Gozer. The aforementioned trailer also contains a blink-and-you-miss-it shot of Rudd’s Grooberson in a car, seemingly in the midst of a frantic escape, when something lands on the hood. While the creature is mostly out of the frame, a familiar-looking clawed, canine-esque foot does make the shot, implying the film’s presence of Terror Dogs. One of the most iconic creatures from the original Ghostbusters (save for Stay Puft himself), the Terror Dogs were the frightening forms of Gozer’s demigod lackies, Zuul, a.k.a. The Gatekeeper, and Vinz Clortho, a.k.a. The Keymaster. Of course, the former ended up possessing Dana Barrett and the latter would take over her awkward floor neighbor, Louis Tully; a necessary step to create the coupling that unlocks Shandor’s interdimensional doorway. The result was a liberated Gozer, who initially took the form of a demonic-looking woman sporting a Sheena Easton haircut and pink jumpsuit before becoming a kaiju-sized manifestation of the fictional marshmallow brand’s mascot made from Ray’s happy childhood memory. Consequently, the apparent presence of Terror Dogs in the new movie seems to point to another Gatekeeper/Keymaster conundrum.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife – Who is Ivo Shandor?
The film will nevertheless serve as a generational handoff of the franchise from returning classic players in Dan Aykroyd’s Ray Stantz, Bill Murray’s Peter Venkman, Ernie Hudson’s Winston Zeddemore, Annie Potts’s Janine Melnitz and Sigourney Weaver’s Dana Barrett. The plot kicks off with the ordeal of single mother Callie (Carrie Coon), who’s forced to move to a rural Oklahoma farm owned by her family. However, her inquisitive two kids, Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) and Phoebe (McKenna Grace) discover that said farm was built for a purpose, one connected to the supernatural activity that now stirs within the Shandor Mine. While the film’s early character details remain ambiguous, the trailer shows the children at home finding the Ecto-1 and Ghostbuster uniform of the late Harold Ramis’s Egon Spengler, thus implying that they are his grandchildren. The apparent familial connection further solidifies the notion of a Gozer-centric plot, presumably with the idea that Egon purchased the farm to watch over things based on his research on Shandor.
Regardless, it’s clear that Afterlife is a legacy movie, and its usage of nostalgic concepts was always inevitable. Yet, while the name Gozer may be iconic to us geeky movie buffs, the creature itself is not widely renowned, at least not to the casual moviegoers who may have only seen the film once or just maintain passing knowledge due to the franchise’s pop culture presence. After all, even Activision’s infamous original Ghostbusters video game —most widely played via the 1988 NES version—mistakenly labels Gozer as “Zuul,” a famous botch (uncorrected across all of its ports) likely attributed to the film’s oft-quoted “There is no Dana, there is only Zuul” line and the Japanese development team’s equally infamous lack of competent English translators. Thus, we’re not quite ready to put Gozer on a Darth Vader -type pedestal of veneration.
It will be interesting to see if director Jason Reitman builds upon the legacy established by his father, Ivan Reitman, on the classic first two films, or if he ends up going the trope-mimicking, member-berries-bountiful unironic parody route that has become so commonplace with modern film reboots. We will certainly find out when the frequently-delayed Ghostbusters: Afterlife presumably makes its long-awaited premiere at theaters on Thursday, November 11.

Mr. Stay Puft
Mr. Stay Puft AKA the Stay Puft Marshmallow man is the mascott of the Stay Puft marshmallow's company. During the first Ghostbusters movie, Gozer says that he will take the form of what they think and use it to destroy them. Ray accidentaly thinks of the Stay Puft logo, so Gozer takes on the form of a giant version of Mr. Stay Puft. He then goes on a rampage through New York and the Ghostbusters know, that the only way to stop Gozer is to cross their beams, a process that would normaly kill them. They still do it and destroy Mr. Stay Puft, sending Gozer back into his dimension.
In The Real Ghostbusters (TV series), Mr. Stay Puft reappears, however this time as an allie to the Ghostbusters.
His last appearance was a small cameo in Ghostbusters 2016, where he was a part of the ghost invasion.
