The Ghosts of Christmas are a trio of deceased specimen sent to turn the bitter Nerd from the Angry Video Game Nerd into a joyous friendly man, which was successful. They are obviously a parody of A Christmas Carols ghosts who were spiritually sent to guide a mean Ebenezer Scrooge away from his bitterness and into the Christmas joy.
Though the ghosts are somewhat friendly and helpful in the two AVGN episodes they appear in, they are minor antagonists and bosses in the AVGN indie game Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures in the stage Blizzard of Balls. They all battle the Nerd in a deathly cold winter cave until they are somehow shot down out of the sky by the Nerd's trusty Nintendo Zapper.
- The Ghost of Christmas Past is played by Stuttering Craig and the Ghost of Christmas Present is played by Handsome Tom, a pair of famous Screwattack employees.
- The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come is identical to Dracula from the Castlevania series, even maintaining the character sprite.
