The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come is initially a dark shadow on a wall, but when he comes out of the walls, he looks like The Grim Reaper. Scrooge states to the ghost that he "fears him more than any specture he has seen".
The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come shows Scrooge the possibilities if he doesn't change his ways. In this future vision Scrooge is shown, Bob Cratchit and his family mourn Tiny Tim's death. Because Bob Cratchit was underpaid, he couldn't provide the food and medical help Tiny Tim needed to survive. It is also shown that Scrooge had died, however there is more joy to his death to that of Tiny Tim. Fred inherets Scrooge's money, Scrooge's maid robs all of his clothes (even the ones he was buried in) and sells them to Old Joe and people are only attending his funeral for a free lunch. Scrooge begs the ghost for a second chance, but the ghost shoves Scrooge into his own grave, where his coffin is deep within the flames of Hell. Ocasionally The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come rides a Specture Hearse and chases Scrooge throughout London on it. One chase sequence sees Scrooge shrunk to the size of a rat after the ghost cracks his whip, creating a shockwave in doing so.
