The Mimic Ghost so far can become a duplicate of Sonic or Tails, minus its glowing red eyes. In its cutscene sprite it seems to have a ghostly body including a ghost tail and lacks legs. However, during the act it is shown to have a complete, transparent body of the character's appearance.
When Sonic and Tails entered Mystic Haunt Zone to investigate the mysteries surrounding the Ifrit, the Mimic Ghost took notice of their arrival, shape-shifts into their form, and challenges them throughout the zone, before losing to the pair.
Powers and abilities
The Mimic Ghost can shape-shift into other characters which in turn, it can match its sources' abilities and is capable of using all of their moves.
- Whether or not there is more than one Mimic Ghost is unclear; the Mimic Ghost that Sonic or Tails faced in Act 1 changes into a duplicate of the other character in Act 2 while in the cutscene before fighting the Egg Phantom, both the Sonic-like and Tails-like forms of the Mimic Ghosts are present suggesting that there are two Mimic Ghosts as implied by Tails.
