|“||The extraordinary Ghazt only manifests itself when conditions are absolutely perfect. Imbued with the Ethereal power of Plasma, its sleek frame and ability to become intangible are ideal for slipping in and out of places unnoticed. However, these traits also make it vulnerable to accidental interdimensional travel. It plays well with the other Monsters, but can only breed with members of its own class.||”|
|— Monster Biography|
The Ghazt is a transparent purple cat-like creature featuring ghostly characteristics such as glowing eyes, and a tail that shrinks to a point as seen in some depictions of ghosts. Some of its other features are feline: pointed ears, fangs, and large claws. Five floating orbs revolve slowly around it, which make musical tones when the Ghazt touches them, and occasionally (when the orb it wants to play is out of reach, or it is using both of its claws already), they'll light up and play a note on their own, which is pretty ghostly.
When this monster is idle, it stays in tempo by bending and floating back and forth with its orbs slowly revolving around it. It will sometimes move its arms as if it's trying to pedal a bike, but with its arms.
Instrument: Electronic keyboard
Ghazts softly patter one of five floating orbs which makes electronic keyboard sounds. To play this on any piano, do this pattern:
C C D E♭ F G, C D E♭ F G F E♭ D C, C C D E♭ F G G, C C D E♭ F E♭ D E♭ D C.
(Next octave higher) C C C D E♭ C, C C D E♭ F G, G G F E♭ G, G G F E♭, C C C D E♭ C, C C D E♭ G, G C F E♭ G, G G F E♭ D, (repeat whole song)
On Plant Island, the Ghazt has a plasmatic ambiance accompanying its song.
On Ethereal Island, the Ghazt mainly plays descending arpeggios and long notes.
Their sound is similar to a robotic Quibble sound.
The Ghazt can be bred using a combination of an Entbrat and one three-element monster. Possible combinations:
There is roughly a 1% chance of breeding this successfully. It is uncertain whether some combinations work better than others, but for the shortest wait time per attempt, the Entbrat and T-Rox combination is recommended. According to statistics, doing 70 attempts gives you a 50% chance of successfully breeding at least one Ghazt; and doing 690 attempts gives you a 99.9% chance of successfully breeding at least one Ghazt.
The Ethereal Breeding Bonanzas improve your chances of breeding a Ghazt. These increase the chance of breeding an Ethereal by 500%, i.e. 5 times the usual odds.
The Rare version of any monster can be used for breeding instead of the common version.
Earning Rate and Maximum Income
Earning rate is in coins or shards per hour and depends on Happiness % (Likes increase Happiness), also each monster has a limit to how much income it can hold at a time. Increasing the monster's level increases the limit.
Each monster needs to be fed four times before it reaches the next level. Increasing the monster's level increases the shards earned per hour, as well as the maximum shards earned.

More info can be found in this article. Note: with the Ethereal Island update, Ghazt can be fed up to level 15, at which time it can be placed on Ethereal Island, instead of Gold Island.
Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster, the monster's happiness will increase by 25%. Placing more than one of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase its happiness by 25%. If there's a Unity Tree on the island, items don't need to be near the monsters. Below are the things liked by Ghazt:
- Entbrat (requires level 9) ()
- Whisp (level 9) ()
- Babayag Tower (level 15)
- Squeed Statue (level 16)
- Crumpler Tree (level 19) ()

To see how efficient Ghazt is at generating resources compared to other monsters check:
The name "Ghazt" comes from the middle-English word "ghast", meaning "to frighten" or "having a weird appearance". It's related to the word "ghastly" and the spelling is also associated with the word "ghost", all possibly relevant to the monster's appearance. The Ghazt may also be based on Bast, the Egyptian cat god because of its appearance.
Possible Monster Names
To see all possible names for Ghazt, see Monster Names.
- The Ghazt, like any other Ethereal monster, can only be placed in the Breeding Structure on Ethereal Island.
- The line "The rare Ghazt only manifests itself when conditions are absolutely perfect." had been changed to show "The extraordinary Ghazt..." in the Version 1.3.3 update.
- This was of course because of the introduction of the Monster, Rare Ghazt, so players wouldn't get confused or mixed up.
- The sentences "All the Ghazt really wants to do is return home to... wherever it is it came from. No one is entirely sure." were removed from the Ghazt's description due to the appearance of the Ethereal Island, which is its home.
- Even though the Ghazt resembles a cat, it also looks somewhat like Toothless from the movie How To Train Your Dragon, who is also supposed to resemble a cat.
- The orbs which float around the Monster are meant to resemble balls of yarn, fitting the Ghazt's cat-like features.
- The Ghazt is the only monster that can appear on Plant Island that never touches the ground.
- Other monsters with the ability to fly or levitate are Tweedle, Cybop, Riff, Glowl (from trailers), Theremind, Poppette, Yuggler, Floot Fly, Squot (technically Squot can levitate, but further examination is needed.), Clavi Gnat, Déjà-Jin, Withur, Grumpyre, Jeeode, Humbug, Whisp, Jellbilly, Flum Ox, and Plixie.
- The reward for placing Ghazt is much lower than other Ethereals. While the rest reward 50,000-100,000 , or some , Ghazt only rewards 5,000 and 50 .
- Between June 13th, 2018 and June 20th, 2018, the Ghazt was discounted by 75% to celebrate its 5-year anniversary since its debut.
- One of the default names for Ghazt, “Aethuri-awl”, is a pun on “Ethereal”. "Aethuri-awl" is also a level in the "Thumpies" game
- When the Ghazt first came to the game, you needed one in order to power up the Gold Island Wubbox, however, you could only feed it to level ten when you would receive the message "This Monster is satisfied for now, and will not eat any more food." Now the Ghazt only powers up the Wubbox on Ethereal Island and is not able to go to Gold Island, because that role is not meant for Ethereal Monsters.
- In Furcorn's Jelly Dreams, Ghazt design looks a little different: its skin is brighter, more saturated, furrier, and almost completely visible.
- During the Light Island Trailer, when a Ghazt on Plant Island had it's orbs blown away by a Spunge, a cat-like "meow" can be faintly heard. This implies that Ghazts are able to meow like cats, since they also look like cats.
- A group of Ghazts is called a 'maelstrom'. (Monster-handler Matt in BBB ExtraLife 2020 stream, though it was mentioned earlier. (no source)
- This is the first and only ethereal to have an epic variant so far.
