Ghost is an installable performance-enhancing component for Extreme Gears. Its actual appearance is unknown, though it is presented as an icon on the head-up display in the top-left corner of the game screen. Its icon is a light green-colored circle with a black stereotypical ghost sticking its tongue out, inscribed in it.
In the game, Ghost is permanently installed into only certain Extreme Gears. When used, Ghost makes the playable character and his/hers Extreme Gear completely invisible to the opponents participating in the race. For the player using Ghost, however, his/her playable character only becomes transparent, allowing the player to still perceive his/her character.
