Ghosts are undead spirits that cannot be harmed by ordinary physical attacks but can be damaged by magic, silver, daedric, enchanted weapons (the weapon does not need to have a charge to be effective), or hand-to-hand (Journeyman) combat.
Ghosts will only attack with ranged and melee magic; most of the time they use frost damaging spells.
Ghosts are particularly susceptible to shock damage.

- Sanctified Ghost – under most chapels.
- Benirus Manor Ghost – in Benirus Manor during the quest "Where Spirits Have Lease" – side quest.

- A way to tell friendly ghosts from hostile ghosts is by looking for legs. If they are just a floating figure and do not look anything like a human would, they are most likely dangerous.
- Sometimes they will use silence on their foes.
- The Honorblade of Chorrol, while not enchanted, is effective against ghosts.
- Ghosts usually move on after their death, except in locations with the power to hold them and feed them.[OOG 1]
- Some spiritual remnants such as ghosts are invisible to the untrained eye.[OOG 2]
