Who is Ghost? A history on Call of Duty’s favorite Grim Reaper

Noah Pather

Noah Pather

Who is Ghost and why is he so important in the COD community? Well join us as we go over a brief history of the beloved grim reaper of MW2.

With the release of the remaster of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, we are treated to the return of Ghost. He made his debut in the original Modern Warfare 2 series and has been a fan-favorite character since. So, with his return in the remaster, a lot of newer players haven't had the time to get to know Ghost. So, let's dive into who Ghost is and the history of what makes him so iconic.

Ghost's Origins in CoD and Why he's loved

Simon "Ghost" Riley made his debut back in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Although he wasn't the player character, Ghost was your right-hand man throughout the majority of the game. The British Special Forces officer was infamously known for his skull pattern mask that never leaves his face. He was the partner in crime of the protagonist of the games. A cold-hearted killer on the outside but a truly good friend to those close to him. He's cemented himself as one of the best characters in the series for his role in the Modern Warfare trilogy.

It's hard to specify one reason as to why the CoD community loves Ghost. Modern Warfare 2 had incredible missions like "No Russian" or "Hotel Whiskey" that became iconic in the game's history and Ghost was with you through it all. But it's hard to pinpoint a specific reason. For some, it's because Modern Warfare 2 was their childhood game, for others it was his loyalty to his partner. But for most, it was his tragic end in the series that cemented his position as an all-time great character.

One mission in CoD MW2 cemented Ghost's position in the hearts of players, which was "loose ends". This mission starts with a phenomenal infiltration of a cottage safehouse that's been occupied by Makarov. And after a narrow escape and important documents acquired, fighting through tooth and nail Roach and Ghost make it out.

At the extraction point, the two meet with Col. Shepard. And seemingly out of nowhere, Shepard ties his loose ends, and shoots both Roach and Ghost. This was an utter shock to every player who's touched the game, as few games kill the main character out of nowhere. And as Ghost lays on the ground, being covered by gasoline, he hears on the radio about Shepard's betrayal. And as Ghost's eyes begin to close, Shepard tosses his cigar onto their bodies, and the pair meet their end. You can check out the full scene here .

The iconic betrayal in the CoD MW2 mission "Loose Ends" (<a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/MemeTemplatesOfficial/comments/fydl6n/mw2_remastered_loose_ends/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener nofollow">source</a>)

The CoD Modern Warfare series as a whole had a great story throughout its trilogy and really made players fall in love with characters like Ghost. And to see such a cold betrayal of not only the player character, but his-ever loyal partner too? That is a therapy session waiting to happen. But out of the sadness comes love. And that's why the community loves Ghost so much, because of his history with the franchise and how good of a friend he was.

Biography [ ]

Early life [ ].

Simon Riley was born in Manchester, England to unnamed parents and a older brother named Tommy, who would often scare him when he slept. While working as an apprentice butcher, Simon saw the 9/11 attacks and joined the British military, and later became a member of the Special Air Service. He returned home in 2003, and refused to return to the military until he fixed his family, as his father was cheating on his mother, and Tommy began a drug addict. Simon managed to help Tommy break from his drug addiction, and made him marry a woman named Beth, as he kicked his father out of their home.

Modern Warfare 2: Ghost #1 [ ]

The first mission depicted in the series has a captured Special Ops soldier wearing a skull-patterned balaclava in a classroom filled with children of a Ukrainian school that has been taken over by terrorists (who threaten to kill one child each hour if their demands are not met). The soldier passes the time by telling a story of his friend, Simon "Ghost" Riley on a mission in Mexico. The SAS loaned "Ghost" to USSOCOM to bust a heroin cartel that has recently begun smuggling terrorists into the U.S. This mission takes place on the Mexican holiday, "Day of the Dead", when Riley and the others wear skull face-paint and skeleton costumes to blend in with the celebrating crowd at the party that the leader of the Heroin Cartel is throwing.

Modern Warfare 2: Ghost #2 [ ]

During Modern Warfare 2: Ghost #2 it is revealed that Ghost and his team are captured by the Mexican cartel, and during their captivity they endure continuous torture and brainwashing techniques in order to be used as hired guns for various criminal and terrorist groups. Throughout this ordeal the reader sees flashbacks of Riley's early life, from his childhood and how he had to endure an abusive fiend of a father.

To his early years in the SAS and how he, after coming back from his first tour of duty in Afghanistan on January 2003, takes care of his abused mother and helps clean up his drug-addicted younger brother named Tommy. In June 2006, Riley is seen as best man at his brother Tommy's wedding, who is now completely free of drugs. During these flashbacks, many of Riley's adversaries are by seen wearing "ghostly" makeup (presumably a hallucination of Riley) of similar style to that worn by participants in the Day of the Dead celebration.

Eventually, the USSOCOM members Sparks and Washington are able to escape, having learned that the Mexican cartel plan to kill them due to the fact they can not break them down, but are forced to leave Riley behind. Moments later, Riley is buried alive with the decaying corpse of Major Vernon.

Modern Warfare 2: Ghost #3 [ ]

At the start of Modern Warfare 2: Ghost #3, Riley digs himself out of the grave by using Vernon's lower jaw bone, which took him thirteen hours, and later found by a Texas sheriff. The story then jumps to December 18, 2010, Riley is being debriefed about his experience to his superiors. Physically Riley is fine, but his superiors fear that his mental state is still in question. Riley has nightmares every time he sleeps, with Roba haunting and taunting him. While spending Christmas with his family, Riley gets a surprise visit from Sparks.

While having a beer together at a local pub, Sparks and Riley rehash old times and their experience during those hellish months in Mexico. Sparks tells Riley that he and Washington are getting ready to deploy to Afghanistan. As they are walking back home Sparks approaches a young woman he previously saw at the pub and tries to sweet talk her into bed, the young woman is not impressed. Angrily, Sparks knocks the woman out, and orders Riley to help him get her inside her house so that they can rape her.

Riley secretly calls the police, and they arrive just before any harm could be done to the woman, forcing Riley and Sparks to retreat. Once they both arrive at Sparks' hotel room, Riley suspects that Sparks is up to something, and by the time he finally pieces the clues together, Sparks points a gun at Riley's head. Riley immediately disarms Sparks, and interrogates him. Sparks reveals that he and Washington have been working for Roba, showing that they had been successfully brainwashed, but before Riley could get any more information Washington arrives from a task and attempts to gun down Riley.

Riley escapes by jumping through Sparks' hotel window, slightly injuring his leg, and steals a cab to make his getaway. Remembering what Roba said about his family, Riley speeds towards his family's home and witnesses a shocking display. His mother; Tommy, Tommy's wife, Beth; and his nephew Joseph have all been executed, no doubt by Washington himself. In the end, Riley claims that he will kill them all: Sparks, Washington, Roba and his entire organization.

Operation Kingfish [ ]

Ghost worked alongside Sandman , John Price , and "Soap" MacTavish on Operation Kingfish in 2013. This would have to mean that Price and Soap had met between the events of " Game Over " and " The Gulag ".

Task Force 141 [ ]

Lt. Simon "Ghost" Riley is first seen in the level Takedown talking to Cpt. John "Soap" MacTavish via radio while they search for Alejandro Rojas's assistant. After John "Soap" MacTavish and Sgt. Gary "Roach" Sanderson begin pursuing the assistant, Ghost meets up with them at the Hotel Rio and joins the chase. Once the assistant is taken down by Roach, he is seen with MacTavish preparing to interrogate him. Ghost is then heard via radio for the rest of the mission as he attempts to pursue Rojas through the Favela. After the capture of Rojas, Ghost is heard requesting extraction from Command but to no avail. Ghost appears in the mission "The Hornet's Nest" with Task Force 141. He manages to escape with Captain MacTavish and Roach aboard Nikolai's helicopter.

Infiltration of the Russian Oil Rig and rescuing Prisoner 627 [ ]

He then takes part in the infiltration of the Russian oil rig, which is being used as a makeshift SAM ( S urface-to- A ir- M issile) site in "The Only Easy Day...Was Yesterday" to rescue hostages. After clearing the oil rig, Ghost takes part in the operation to rescue Prisoner 627 from a Russian gulag. He takes control of the gulag's security systems and guides Soap and Roach to the prisoner, revealed to be Captain Price, imprisoned following his capture during Operation Kingfish.

Infiltration of a Russian submarine base [ ]

Ghost also appears in the level Contingency , where he helps Captain Price infiltrate a Russian submarine base along with other Task Force 141 members. However, he is shocked when Price launches a SLBM at Washington D.C. where the Russian-American war rages on. Ghost contacted command of Code Black, the statement that a threat of a nuclear weapon has been launched and must be disposed of immediately. It is possible that he retracted this though after he learned of Price's intention.

The Search for Vladimir Makarov and Death [ ]

Ghost's final appearance is in the level "Loose Ends" where he leads a strike-team to search for Vladimir Makarov at his safehouse on the Georgian-Russian border. However, Makarov is nowhere to be found but the safehouse is loaded ("a bloody gold mine" as Ghost said) with intel. Ghost along with Roach, Ozone, and Scarecrow with sniper support from Archer and Toad, protect the DSM while it downloads information regarding Makarov's operations. As the team head to the LZ set up by Shepherd, Ozone and Scarecrow are killed by enemy mortars and Roach is injured. Ghost manages to get Roach to the LZ, but Roach and Ghost are betrayed by Shepherd, who initially appears to help Ghost get Roach into his MH-53 Pave Low to escape, but instead fatally shoots Roach in the gut, and Ghost in the head/chest at point-blank range with a .44 Magnum before he could use his ACR in retaliation. Ghost's body is then thrown into a ditch and set on fire along with Roach's by Shepherd and his Shadow Company forces.

Call of Duty: Heroes [ ]

In Call of Duty: Heroes , Ghost became a playable character in an update where he can purchased with a thousand Celerium.

Call of Duty: Mobile [ ]

Ghost appears as a playable operative in Call of Duty: Mobile , and as a supporting character in the Mobile comics. In the game, he guides the player through various tutorials. In the comics, he is a a member of the United Ant-Terrorism Coalition, a group was founded by Captain Price, and they act as a countermeasure to the Five Knights and later the Dark Covenant. In the comic, the Ghost character is the original, as his Jawbone costume given to him by Captain Price is purely cosmetic.

Ghost would soon come across Vladimir Makarov, who somehow survived being killed by Mace, and the latter explains each member of the Five Knights. When Makarov explains that the leader of the Five Knights is unknown unless he takes him in, Ghost agrees but the two are stopped by Templar. Ghost battles the operative until he is stabbed and left for dead by Templar, but Riley is recovered by Makarov, who gives his body to the Ghosts.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) [ ]

In the 2019 reboot of the Modern Warfare series, Ghost is mentioned at the end of the campaign by Captain Price. Price tells Kate Laswell that he's creating of team called Task Force 141, and Simon Riley is part of his recruitment, alongside Kyle "Gaz" Garrick and Johnny "Soap" MacTavish. In addition, Laswell notes there's no picture for him, and Price simply replies "never."

He appears as a playable character for the Armistice and the Coalition for Modern Warfare's season two DLC. Towards the end of the season, Ghost works with "Alex" and later joins the task force to stop Victor Zahkaev. It's also assumed the character will appear in the sequel, and will be aiding Captain Price on missions since his recruitment into Task Force 141.

He is voiced by Jeff Leach, and by Samuel Roukin in the upcoming sequel Modern Warfare II .

  • He is the announcer of multiplayer (for TF 141), and most of the Spec Ops missions.
  • According to two Army Rangers in "S.S.D.D.", Ghost has the second highest score in the pit.
  • Despite having blue eyes in the game, he has brown eyes in the titular comics.
  • Possibly, the title of Ghosts is a reference to the character due to his popularity.
  • Another reference is the use of Ghost mask, as they have skull patterns on them as well.
  • Additionally, Ghost's model can be used as a multiplayer skin, and will cause the player's character to become mute.

Who is Ghost in Call of Duty, and why is his return a big deal?

New Modern Warfare Season 2 trailer teases the return of fan-favorite Lt. Simon “Ghost” Riley.

This article contains spoilers for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 2: Ghost.

A fan-favorite character has been hinted to return in  Call of Duty: Modern Warfare . A teaser that was posted features the return of Lt. Simon “Ghost” Riley, which is due to drop on Feb. 11 – when Season 2 is tipped to begin. 

The teaser, posted in a tweet, shows someone logging in to view encrypted files that they received from Captain Price. Ghost can be seen in the reflection of the laptop screen. “New team: Operators” and “updated weapons system/ordinance” also show on the screen, which could hint what will arrive in the game with the update. Some fans have also pointed out that the images that appear are of Rust, the iconic map from  Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 . Could this be where Ghost makes his return?

Who is Ghost?

It is no surprise that the Ghost has made a return. First seen in  Modern Warfare 2  in 2009 as a British Special Forces operator, he has been popular with fans ever since. The last time fans saw him was as a customization option in  Call of Duty: Ghosts,  so there’s quite a buzz surrounding his return.

Players first encountered Ghost in Rio de Janeiro in  Takedown , although he was only around in person for a short time. He then communicated via radio for the rest of the mission. He was also seen in the mission  The Hornet’s Nest  with Task Force 141, an “elite, multi-national counter-terrorist unit under Lieutenant General Shepherd’s command.” 

Ghost’s final appearance was in a mission that shocked every single  CoD  fan that played it and became infamous in the community –  Loose Ends . This is the last level in which players see Ghost alive. In it, both he and Gary “Roach” Sanderson, a fellow member of Task Force 141, are betrayed by Shephard.

Ghost and Roach are sent to the antagonist’s safehouse on the Georgian-Russian border to search for intel. When they find “a bloody goldmine” (according to Ghost) of information and return it to Shephard, he betrays and kills them to take the glory for himself, and cement his status as a war hero. He then dumps both characters’ bodies in a ditch and sets fire to them with his cigar.

Why is he a fan favorite? 

Many players were very affected by Ghost’s brutal death, hence why Loose Ends became such an infamous and painful level – and still is, even over 10 years after its release. At the time, his death was horrific, and players are still mourning him to this day. Fans had warmed to Riley throughout the game, charmed by his English slang (I can still hear him saying, “Bloody hell those trucks are bulletproofed!”) and his permanent skull-mask-and-sunglasses ensemble.

Lt. Simon Riley had such a positive reception that shortly after  MW2  released, Wildstorm Productions developed a six-issue comic series,  Modern Warfare 2: Ghost , as a companion to the game. In the series, fans got to explore Ghost’s life before the events of  MW2 , including his childhood and the origins of his iconic skull mask. 

It is revealed that Ghost’s childhood in Manchester, England, was traumatic, mainly due to his abusive father, who used to taunt him with deadly animals. Skulls and their symbolism are a recurring theme in Ghost’s backstory, which explains the mask he wears. When he was a child, his brother used to wear a skull mask at night to scare Riley.

While in the Military, Ghost was ordered to take down a Mexican drug dealer who was also smuggling terrorists into the US. He is instead captured and tortured by the kingpin following a betrayal from the mission’s leader (do you sense a pattern?). His torturers condition him to see skulls on other peoples’ faces to remind him of his abusive father and troubled childhood to get him to kill his betrayer.

Ghost refuses to kill his former comrade, and the cartel leaves him for dead in a coffin underground with the corpse of his betrayer. Later in the series, the cartel he was chasing murder his entire family, except for his father, and frame Riley for the killing. He goes to visit his father one final time in the hospital, and both of them, having slipped into madness after their troubled lives, laugh at the idea of death. His father is then killed.

Riley finds and finally exacts his revenge on his torturers, before being picked up by Task Force 141, beginning his story as fans previously knew it.

The harrowing events in  Modern Warfare 2: Ghost  made Simon Riley a sympathetic figure for fans and allowed them to connect and feel closer to his character. The things he has survived only cement his role as a complete badass and most  CoD  fans remember him fondly. Furthermore, the fact that his mask always hid his face led to lots of speculation about his appearance. Despite his short in-game appearance, he is an icon of the franchise, and the idea that we could see him again in  Modern Warfare  is fascinating.

What can we expect?

Although we don’t have any information about Ghost’s return other than the teaser, he will likely join the game as a multiplayer character or feature in a new Spec Ops mission. Perhaps he will be part of the new Operators team that is also briefly shown during the teaser.

Since there are at least  five years  between the events of the first  Modern Warfare  and  Modern Warfare 2 , there is a possibility that we’ll get to see Ghost in the early days of his role in Task Force 141. Although it’s unlikely that his cameo will delve any deeper into his character, it would still be interesting to see a section of Ghost’s story that we haven’t been party to yet. 

Regardless of how Ghost’s revived role plays out, it will still be a special experience for fans to take a nostalgia trip and see the franchise’s most-loved character alive again.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare  Season 2 begins on Feb. 11.

Gay Call Of Duty 'Ship' Makes Fanfic Site’s Top Ten

There were nearly 9,000 ghost and soap comics, short stories, and more published to archive of our own last year.

Image for article titled Gay Call Of Duty &#39;Ship&#39; Makes Fanfic Site’s Top Ten

Some of you may be surprised that a gay Call of Duty ship is in the top ten of fanfiction site Archive Of Our Own’s annual, unofficial roundup , but I’m not. Not long after the 2022 release of Modern Warfare II , a bevy of TikToks bimbofied Call of Duty character Simon “Ghost” Riley , who is only ever shown in-game wearing a full face mask with a skull emblazoned on it. The baby girl-ification of the decidedly masculine character led to a massive increase in Archive Of Our Own (AO3) stories shipping Ghost with fellow hard-boiled military man, John “Soap” MacTavish.

According to the roundup, which ranks the pairing tags with the “greatest gain in total fanworks” posted to AO3, the two potential lovebirds are the sixth-most popular ship on the site, and the second-most popular from the world of gaming, falling behind only Genshin Impact ’s Kaveh and Alhaitham. The next gaming ship on the list? Baldur’s Gate 3 ’s vampire hottie Astarion and the player-character Tav. Check out the entire list below.

As you can see, Good Omens ’ angel and devil duo Aziraphale and Crowley top the list, likely thanks to the performances from Michael Sheen and David Tennant in the Amazon Prime series based off of the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett book of the same name (they were 30th last year). In second place, we’ve got a tried-and-true ship: Harry Potter ’s Sirius Black and Remus Lupin, followed by Dazai Osamu and Nakahara Chuuya from the Bungou Stray Dogs manga. In fourth place, the holdovers of 2022 stand strong: Stranger Things ’ Eddie Munson and Steve Harrington, though they’re down from their first-place ranking in 2022. The newest addition to the AO3 rankings is Genshin ’s fifth-place spot, which is rather impressive, and then there’s our Call of Duty Task Force 141 boys, who jumped up a whopping 75 spots this year—and I think I know why.

Call of Duty’s Ghost and Soap, in love

Late last year, Ghost became such an iconic character for shippers and ThirstTok fans that even wildly popular influencer Brittany Broski (you may know her as Kombucha Girl , though she has long since grown beyond that moniker for me and millions of others) was openly pining for him on the social media platform. In September of this year, Broski bought herself a Cameo (a personalized celebrity video you can purchase for yourself or a really funny birthday present) from former Ghost voice actor Jeff Leach , who offers videos of himself wearing full Ghost cosplay for $99. The subsequent clip of her watching her personalized Cameo almost sent me into orbit.

Though it may initially seem like there’s several degrees of separation between the inherently masculine and bombastically bro-y Call of Duty series and very graphic, gay fanfic, AO3’s 2023 roundup is here to dispel your disbelief. I did a cursory glance to see what kind of content was on offer and found comics depicting Ghost as an actual ghost who provides emotional support for a very-much-alive Soap, a story where you’re a new recruit to Task Force 141 and the masked man piques your sexual interest, and one where Soap’s aunt brings home a new SAS boyfriend for Christmas who turns his attentions to her nephew instead. The Ghost content is either deliciously raunch or adorably sweet, but almost all of it is very, very gay.

The layered, complicated connections between the military and LGBTQIA+ people has a long and messy history, but clearly something about Ghost and Soap is clicking with fanfic writers across the world. Are there any other additions to this year’s list that surprise you?

Correction 01/02/2024 at 4:00 p.m. EST: It’s Michael Sheen in Good Omens , not Martin.

I did a cursory glance to see what kind of content was on offer and found comics depicting Ghost as an actual ghost who provides emotional support for a very-much-alive Soap, a story where you’re a new recruit to Task Force 141 and the masked man piques your sexual interest, and one where Soap’s aunt brings home a new SAS boyfriend for Christmas who turns his attentions to her nephew instead. The Ghost content is either deliciously raunch or adorably sweet, but almost all of it is very, very gay.

The layered, complicated connections between the military and LGBTQIA+ people has a long and messy history, but clearly something about Ghost and Soap is clicking with fanfic writers across the world. Are there any other additions to this year’s list that surprise you?

Reliving Iconic Moments: The Legendary Ghost Meme in MW2

  • by Matthew Paxton

In the vast digital landscape of memes, there are few that manage to capture the essence of a character’s emotion and create a universally relatable experience. Enter the Ghost meme from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, a phenomenon that has swept across social media platforms, bringing joy and laughter to millions of fans worldwide. 

In this article, we will delve into the roots of the Ghost meme, examining its versatility and widespread usage that has solidified its place in the pantheon of gaming culture.

Background of Ghost Character

Simon “Ghost” Riley, a name that resonates with Call of Duty enthusiasts, was first introduced to gamers in the iconic title, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, released in 2009. 

Clad in his signature skull mask, Ghost embodies an enigmatic persona that has left an indelible mark on the franchise. 

His brooding personality, coupled with his unmistakable appearance, has garnered a dedicated following, making him a standout character in the Call of Duty universe.

Ghost’s presence extends beyond his initial appearance, as he continued to grace subsequent Call of Duty games, cementing his status as a fan-favorite.

Creation of the Ghost Meme

The Ghost meme’s inception can be traced back to a pivotal scene within the Modern Warfare 2 campaign. Ghost, accompanied by his fellow operative John “Soap” MacTavish, finds himself in a vehicle alongside Alejandro Vargas and Rodolfo “Rudy” Parra. 

This encounter takes them into the heart of Mexico’s notorious drug cartel, Las Almas, setting the stage for a memorable sequence. However, it is not the cartel’s presence that triggers the meme-worthy moment.

Rather, it is a chance encounter with a group of children donning Ghost masks and carrying weapons. The scene unfolds with Soap spotting the kids and their eerie paraphernalia, including the unmistakable Ghost mask.

As Soap turns to take in the sight, he is met with Ghost’s intense gaze, accompanied by a remark that humorously captures the surrealism of the situation: “Kids, guns, and balloons… that’s a new one.” 

This brief yet impactful interaction provided fans with a canvas upon which they could paint their own interpretations, leading to the birth of the Ghost meme.

Fans' Interpretation and Utilization of the Meme

The Ghost meme’s strength lies in its malleability, allowing fans to imbue it with relatable contexts and scenarios from their everyday lives.

By overlaying Ghost’s intense expression and his memorable quote onto various situations, fans have managed to create a diverse array of humorous and relatable memes.

These internet memes [1] quickly found a home on popular social media platforms, including TikTok, Twitter, and YouTube, where they garnered significant attention, views, and likes.

From witty captions to humorous video edits, the Ghost meme has transcended its gaming origins to become a shared language among internet users. 

Whether it’s Ghost’s stare juxtaposed with mundane tasks or his quote repurposed to fit unexpected situations, the meme’s adaptability has contributed to its meteoric rise to internet stardom.

Impact and Popularity of the Ghost Meme

The Ghost meme’s emergence parallels the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on October 28, 2022, which enjoyed resounding success, becoming the franchise’s most successful launch. 

Ghost’s enduring popularity as a character within the Modern Warfare series undoubtedly played a role in propelling the meme to new heights. With a devoted fanbase, any content associated with Ghost has the potential to capture the internet’s collective imagination.

Platforms like YouTube and TikTok have served as fertile grounds for the Ghost meme to flourish. Highlight videos showcasing Ghost and Soap’s interactions have amassed impressive view counts, with one YouTube video alone garnering almost half a million views.

Meanwhile, TikTok users have embraced the meme, with numerous videos crossing the million-view mark, and over 54,000 videos dedicated to Ghost and Soap’s dynamic exchanges.

Notably, this is not the first time Ghost has taken the internet by storm. A previous memorable moment involving Ghost’s betrayal in the 2009 edition of Modern Warfare 2 spawned a wave of parodies that flooded social media platforms, underscoring Ghost’s enduring impact on gaming culture.

The Ghost meme stands as a testament to the power of gaming culture and its ability to transcend the confines of virtual worlds. Born from a fleeting yet impactful moment in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the meme has captured the hearts of fans and internet users alike. 

With each new adaptation, interpretation, and iteration, the Ghost meme reinforces its position as a beloved and timeless artifact in the ever-expanding tapestry of internet culture. As Modern Warfare 2 evolves with ongoing updates and new content, it’s certain that Ghost’s legacy, both as a character and as a meme, will persist, captivating new generations of gamers and internet enthusiasts.

Ghost is the commonly used name for the character Simon "Ghost" Riley in the 2022 video game Call of Duty : Modern Warfare II. The character is recognizable for his skull face mask, which he never removes in the series. Though the character had appeared in previous Modern Warfare titles, his 2022 iteration developed a significant fandom on social media, as well as a presence in memes such as Ghost Gaze .

Simon "Ghost" Riley appeared in the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare titles released in the 2000s and returned in the 2020 reboots, first as a playable character in multiplayer modes of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and as one of three playable protagonists in the 2022 reboot of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II . [1] A compilation of popular scenes featuring Ghost, seen below, was uploaded to YouTube [3] by Major Alex on October 22nd, 2022, earning 469,000 views in just over two weeks.

Ghost quickly developed a fandom among Modern Warfare II fans on social media. On TikTok ] a remixed audio clip featuring Ghost talking with Soap about his mask posted by @momentsofgaming has gained over 1 million likes in three weeks (shown below, left). The audio has been used in over 200 videos as of November 10th, 2022, with many commenting the pair sound like they're flirting. Another example posted to TikTok [5] by @tophathunni gained over 136,000 likes in one week (shown below, right).

https://www.tiktok.com/embed/v2/7162018744942726402

The dialogue exchange, particularly when Ghost says he's "quite the opposite" of ugly, also prompted parodies where people imagined what Ghost was doing at that exact moment. For example, user @bigyuyu17 posted a TikTok [6] imagining Ghost squatting in a sexual pose, gaining over 515,000 likes in three days (shown below, left). User @jeshurunchen posted a similar TikTok, [7] gaining over 335,000 likes in six days (shown below, right). The audio for these TikToks has been used in over 54,000 videos as of November 10th, 2022.

https://www.tiktok.com/embed/v2/7161981429667122474

Some Call of Duty fans were unhappy with the trend. For example, TikTok [8] user @thecubancrusher lamented the sexualization of Ghost, remembering the iconic Shepherd's Betrayal scene in Modern Warfare 2, gaining over 389,000 likes in one week (shown below).

The Call of Duty Ghost Mask is an iconic piece of headgear worn by Simon “Ghost” Riley, a character in the Call of Duty video game franchise. The mask made its first appearance in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, released in 2009.

The developer behind the game, Infinity Ward, was looking to create a character that would stand out from other soldiers and be instantly recognizable to players. The mask was designed to be both intimidating and mysterious, with its skull-like appearance and the fact that it covers Ghost’s entire face.

The origins of the mask within the game’s storyline are also shrouded in mystery. It is hinted that Ghost wears the mask to hide his identity and protect his loved ones from retaliation by his enemies. However, the exact reason for the mask’s use is never fully explained.

Despite this lack of explanation, the Call of Duty Ghost Mask has become an iconic symbol of the franchise. It has been featured in merchandise, cosplay, and even real-life military uniforms. The mask’s popularity has also led to speculation and fan theories about its origins and purpose within the game’s storyline.

Symbolism in the Game

The mask worn by Ghost in Call of Duty has a significant symbolic meaning in the game. The skull motif has long been associated with death and danger, making it an appropriate choice for a soldier in a combat zone. The mask represents the fearlessness of Ghost and his ability to evade death in the face of danger. It is also a symbol of the anonymity that Ghost maintains throughout the game, adding to his mystique and making him a more interesting character.

The mask is also a way for Ghost to hide his true identity, which is a common theme in the game. Many characters in Call of Duty wear masks or have code names, which adds to the intrigue and mystery of the game. Ghost’s mask is unique in that it is a skull balaclava, which serves to intimidate his enemies and add to his reputation as a skilled and deadly soldier.

In addition to its symbolic meaning, the mask also serves a practical purpose in the game. It helps to conceal Ghost’s face and identity, making it more difficult for his enemies to identify him. This allows him to move more freely and operate more effectively in combat situations.

Overall, the symbolism of Ghost’s mask adds depth and intrigue to his character, making him one of the most iconic and memorable characters in the Call of Duty franchise.

Design and Aesthetics

The Call of Duty Ghost mask is a highly recognizable and iconic piece of gaming merchandise.

The mask is available in a variety of materials, including resin, plastic, and cloth, and can be worn as a costume accessory or used as a display piece.

The mask’s design is based on the character Simon “Ghost” Riley, a former British special forces operator who becomes a member of the Ghosts, a fictional elite special forces unit in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The mask has become a symbol of the Ghosts and is often associated with the character’s mysterious and deadly persona.

The mask’s aesthetics are highly detailed and realistic, with intricate skull features and a weathered, battle-worn appearance. The mask is often painted in a dark, muted color scheme, which adds to its ominous and intimidating appearance. The mask’s design has been praised by fans of the game for its accuracy and attention to detail, and has become a popular item for cosplay and Halloween costumes.

In addition to the standard Ghost mask, there are also variations available, such as masks with added 3D features or masks with integrated balaclavas.
