    === Introduction =================================================== INT01 ===
     While playing Project Zero, I always got frustrated at points where I would
     miss a ghost, ie. by running past it or having Miku facing the wrong
     direction and miss the situation of automatic targeting (not moving and
     pressing 'O' when a ghost appears).
     The very purpose of this guide is to help you to capture all the required
     ghosts in order to get the Zero Ability. Move along the list when you capture
     ghosts to see what's around the next corner.
     I do know there already are guides for all the ghosts in the game, including
     fighting strategies. This guide is solely about capturing all the ghosts,
     not on the strategies on winning the battles.
     This guide is based on the European PAL version of the game (Project Zero)
     for the PlayStation 2. This guide might apply to the Xbox version as well
     for the most part, but it has some exclusive ghosts. While you will find
     most of the ghosts in the Xbox version by following this guide, you will not
     get a 100% completion.
    === Version history ================================================ VER02 ===
     1.09 (26.01.2012)
        A rather small update. Fixed some minor issues.
     1.08 (21.03.2006)
        A bit late for this update, but I fixed the layout to match GameFAQs
        requirements and fixed few typing errors here and there.
     1.07 (31.08.2005)
        A huge update correcting the order of ghosts in the list. Some of the
        ghosts were listed in an order which would've made it impossible to
        capture each one of them.
     1.06 (21.07.2005)
        Small updates.
     1.05 (17.06.2005)
        A quick update that completed all the missing guides and fixed small
     1.04 (17.06.2005)
        The first published version of the guide.
    === Quick notes before playing ===================================== NOT03 ===
     - I assume you have some basic knowledge about the game and the places where
       the most basic ghosts appear. Of course, you also know each room and the
       objectives on how to beat the game by heart.
     - Did you know that when the ghost drops the blue spirit after you have
       managed to get rid of it, means that you actually get it on your ghost
       list? Good, now you know. Obtaining the spirit is not necessary to fill
       the list (unconfirmed for all of the ghosts).
     - Check this guide to see if during a certain ghost you have the ability to
       use the built-in auto-aiming. This immensely helps you capture the ghost,
       both faster and more easily.
     - NOTE: Load a save-game in which you have finished the game already (Clear
       Data), then choose "Story Mode" and "Start Game" to start the game.
       Some of the ghosts are impossible to capture on your first run (all of
       the ones during the intro, for example). You can, however use this on your
       first run, but you cannot get the full list with just one playthrough.
    === The ghost list ================================================= LST04 ===
    --- Legend -------------------------------------------------------- LEG04-1 ---
        The number of the ghost is given by the order of appearance of the ghosts.
        I know you can encounter the ghosts in a different order, but the order is
        the most efficient route when capturing ALL the ghosts.
        If there are three dashes where the number should be, it means that the
        ghost is already captured and can be walked away from. They are included
        only because the ghosts will appear even if you have them captured.
      - Moving
        The ghost is either moving horizontally or vertically. Moving speed does
        not have to be listed since mostly they move very slowly or at standard
        walking speed. The faster ghosts are mentioned on the guide itself.
        These types of ghosts will vanish after a short time.
      - Stationary
        The ghost is stationary and does not move. It will vanish after a short
      - Hidden
         Hidden ghosts make up noises and the Filament turns blue when you're near
         them. They don't disappear until you manage to take a photograph of them.
      - Seal
         Seal ghost are the type of Hidden ghosts that you HAVE to photograph in
         order to move on in the game, you can't miss them.
      - Boss
         Boss fights are the kind of enemy-encounters where the enemy is
         introduced you with a pre-rendered cutscene. You might have encountered
         the boss before in some smaller encounters like the ghost walking or
         turning before you. When you're in a boss battle, the room doors are
         locked (with a few exceptions).
      - Enemy
         In most cases, enemies are the same ghosts you fought in boss battles,
         only this time you don't see a pre-rendered video. During enemy fights,
         you can evade the enemies by running through several doors to lose them.
      - Random
         There also are random encounters in Project Zero, only the ones that need
         to be captured are listed in this guide. These happen when you spend too
         long roaming around and not completing the missions. To get the required
         random encounters, you will have to roam about headlessly until the
         specific ghost appears.
         This is the room where the ghost can be found, it might not be the exact
         room where you take the picture (ie. when you take a picture from the
         doorway); I have written the room the ghost itself appears in, not
         necessary where you must be to capture it.
         This clarifies whether you can press the finder button (without holding
         any movement buttons) and the screen will automatically target at the
         Auto-aiming is only listed for fightable enemies and normal ghost
         encounters (listed as Enemy, Boss, Stationary or Moving).
         Tells you if you can run away from the enemy (enter a different room or
         area) or if you are forced to fight it.
         Evade is only listed for fightable enemies (listed as Enemy or Boss).
         How many points you get from a hidden ghost. You also get points from
         basic enemy battles, but the amount differs depending on the power of
         your camera and other variables, so finding the minimum score would be
         hard and pointless.
         Points are only listed for hidden ghosts (listed as Hidden).

    === The capturing guide ============================================ GUI05 ===
    --- Intro: Himuro ------------------------------------------------ HIM05-1 ---
     001 Child Behind
         Right away from the start, turn to your left side and move near the cage,
         move around a bit in the finder view and you can see the child behind the
     002 RopeHallwayMan
         He (Junsei Takamine, the novelist) will walk right in front of you while
         you're closing to the mirror.
     003 ManLookingDown
         While walking near to the stairway, you can see the ghost appearing above
         you on the second level of the room.
     004 Angry Man
         In the small room-like walkway in the room, the ghost can be found on top
         of the book shelf.
     005 Bound Man
         You will automatically encounter this enemy while picking up the notes
         from the ground on the second level of Fireplace.
     --- Assistant's
         Before going back downstairs after capturing the Bound Man, visit the
         flock just above the door to the Rope Hallway and you will see the
         Assistant's ghost entering the Rope Hallway. Notice that this ghost is
         irrelevant and can NOT be captured at all.
    --- 1st Night: The Strangling Ritual ----------------------------- RIT05-2 ---
     006 ManAtPartition
         When you open the door to the Hallway, a male ghost (Koji Ogata, the
         editor) will appear behind the partition to the left of you, turn around
         and take a picture.
         NOTE: This is the only ghost that you can't take a photo of during the
         first time you're playing the game (with Miku), since Miku wont have the
         camera at this point yet.
     007 Man On A Beam
         As you pick up your mother's camera from where your brother had dropped
         it, a ghost will appear on the beam behind you, turn around and take a
     008 Bro's Shadow
         When moving near to the stairs, your brother's shadow will appear walking
         up the stairs. Take a picture.
     009 Hallway Man
         After you have tried the locked door, don't yet return to the downstairs,
         but instead, walk to the small pathway on the south-west side of the
         second floor, to the broken staircase. After moving close to the item on
         the ground, a ghost will appear down the stairs, enable your finder view,
         look a bit lower and snap a photo.
     010 Man at Screen
         Walk down the stairs (walking means no running ;) near the wall, on the
         fourth step, stop and open the finder view, you will automatically aim at
         the ghost.
     011 Wandering Man
         When you come through the partition, the editor can be seen right to you.
     012 DeadMan's Body
         After the FIRST cutscene when opening the closet, you have a short time
         to capture a picture of the editor's dead body. Enable the finder view
         and look a bit lower and to the right to capture the picture. The
         capturing range is quite small so you might miss it few times.
     013 Man at Window
         This ghost will appear when you walk inside of the Kimono Room. The best
         way to capture the ghost, is to run south, near the gap between the two
         kimonos, and take the picture of the editor near the window.
     014 Editor's
         After walking to the notes near the window, the battle will begin.
     015 Woman inKimono
         When leaving the room, be sure to check the two kimonos in the south-east
         corner of the room. The area and range to capture the ghost is a bit
         small so you might have to work on it a while.
     --- Editor's
         The editor appears again as you open the door to the Lamp Hallway, this
         time you don't actually have to take the picture, and you can run away to
         the Fireplace if you want.
     016 Man in Closet
         After coming back to the Lamp Hallway from the Fireplace and going beyond
         the corner, a ghost will appear in the closet in the other end of the
     017 Man Standing
         Editor getting scary ;) Right when you open the door to the Library, the
         editor will appear just before you. He wont stand there very long.
     018 Man Behind
         When you place the Mirror to the stand, the editor will appear right
         behind you. Just press the finder button to automatically aim at the
     --- Editor's
         After taking the picture, a battle with editor begins. It is necessary to
         kill him to get away from the room.
     019 Woman at Mirror
         When walking along the corridor upstairs of the Walkway, a female ghost
         (Tomoe Hirasaka, the assistant) will appear in the front of the mirror.
     020 Man w/ Long Arms
         When Miku goes downstairs of the Walkway, a cutscene will interrupt the
         game and the Ghost will appear after it.
     021 WanderingWoman
         After coming from behind the Partition, the assistant can be seen walking
         towards the door leading to Cherry-Atrium.
     022 Girl Pointing
         While entering the Storehouse, a child ghost (Kirie as child) will point
         to the pile of junk under the stairs.
     023 Seductress
         This hidden ghost is peeking from behind the shelf under the stairs.
     024 Woman on Porch
         When entering the Cherry-Atrium, after the corner, to your left you can
         see the assistant moving away from you.
     025 Woman In Pain
         At the west corner of the Moon Shrine, a ghost can be found at your feet.
     026 Woman inAtrium
         The assistant ghost will walk towards the Abyss when you move near to the
         doorway to the Abyss.
     027 Woman Pulled In
         At the left side of the waterwheel, the assistant's body appears in front
         of you.
     028 Woman Turning
         When entering the doll room for the first time, run in and ready your
         camera, as the assistant will disappear after turning around to you.
         She's easy to catch even from the doorway, so don't worry about it too
     029 Child Onlooker
         At the north-west corner of the larger doll-table, a child can be found
         peeking behind the table.
     030 Crawling Girl
         After taking the picture of the boy, a girl ghost will appear from a
         closet south of the room. You can't leave the room without defeating her.
     031 WomanWhoJumps
         When moving towards the stairs of the Cherry-Atrium, strafe right while
         having the camera ON and pointing in between the two Shinto gates. She
         will fall down very quickly so you have to hold on tight of the finder
         AND shutter button. The finder-mode automatically goes off when she
         falls, so be ready to enable it again, fast. I'd suggest you to look a
         tad lower than normal eye-height, also, shooting several times rapidly
         can also help capturing her.
     032 Broken Neck
         You have to battle the woman who just fell from the Observatory.
     033 Man Turning
         When entering the Stairway, the novelist appears in front of the mirror
         (straight forward from where you're standing at), ready your camera upon
         opening the door and take the picture.
     034 Woman atCorner
         When moving north from the spot where you saw the novelist, the assistant
         will appear at the other end of the corridor, moving behind the corner.
         Just another basic moving ghost.
     035 Assistant's
         You will emerge in a battle with the assistant upon entering the
         Fish-TankRoom. You cannot leave the room before defeating her.
     036 Monk into Dark
         At the middle of the Fish-TankRoom, where you can see some blood
         appearing to the water, equip your camera, face north and look up to see
         the hidden ghost.
     037 Woman Hanging
         Check upon the lonely tree at the Cherry-Atrium, you can find a ghost of
         Yae Munakata.
     038 Blinded Woman
         Before going to the center of the Cherry-Atrium, visit the Rubble Room
         through the Burial Room, and walk towards the the door at the opposide
         end of the room, The Blinded Woman appears in front of your for only a
         few seconds, so be cautious and ready with the camera.
     039 Female Head
         Right when you enter the Stairway, ready up the camera and aim at the
         stairs, the head will start "rolling" upwards the stairs from the bottom
         and disappear pretty quickly.
     040 Female Head
         After the Female Head disappears from the stairs, she will attack you as
         a normal enemy.
     041 Man in Backyard
         When coming from behind of the wooden fence, you can see the novelist
         walking past the well, going to towards the Forest Path. He will be there
         only for a brief moment.
     042 Girl Pleading
         This is a ghost which many seem to miss. After taking a picture of the
         novelist, equip your camera and face up to the black window in the
         building south. While moving backwards to the well, Kirie will appear at
         the window for a short time, take a picture of her.
     043 Girl Turning
         The ghost can be found behind the well.
     --- Assistant's
         Upon entering the small path in the Backyard, close to the gravestones,
         the assistant will start a battle with you.
     044 Standing Man
         Walk on the left side of the stone stairs towards the Shrine, the
         novelist will appear behind the right pole of the Shinto gate when you're
         around halfway to the top.
     045 Warped Man
         Near the halfway, the ghost can be found on the eastern side (on the
         right side if you're coming from the bottom) of the stairs, when looking
         to the woods.
     046 Crucified Man
         Instantly when the pre-rendered video is over, turn around 180 degrees,
         enable the finder view (or the other way around) and look up to the
     047 Novelist's
         After capturing the novelist crucified to the ceiling, he will attack
         you. Winning the battle adds the Novelist's to your ghost list.
    --- 2nd Night: Demon Tag ----------------------------------------- DEM05-3 ---
     048 Child on Porch
         This is the second hardest ghost to capture in the game. Right after you
         have opened the door, rapidly press the finder button to enable the
         finder view, then start pressing the shutter button rapidly to ensure
         that you will capture the ghost.
     049 Blinded
         When walking towards the stairway of the porch, the Blinded ghost will
         appear behind you. You CAN run away from this battle. But you most likely
         will want to have her on your ghost list, so be sure to capture her.
     050 Hanged Woman
         Again, you can meet the ghost of Yae, hanging from the tree.
     051 Burned Man
         In Abyss, at the south-west corner (north-east of the Moon Shrine) the
         ghost of a burned man can be found near the fence.
     052 Observatory Man
         When coming back from the Abyss, walking towards the mansion, the
         folklorist appears on top of the Observatory, and won't stay there for a
         long time either. Since auto-aiming doesn't work for him, be sure to look
         upwards when equipping the camera.
     053 Girl under Porch
         This ghost will be extremely difficult to capture if you don't know about
         her, luckily you're reading this guide. When moving towards the porch
         stairs, have the finder view view enabled, and aim under the porch by the
         right side of the stairs. Your finder view will go off when the ghost
         appears, so be ready to enable it again, take a picture and move on.
     054 KidRunningAway
         And here we have it, the very hardest-to-capture ghost in the game. When
         you enter the stairway and move towards the mirror, the Filament turns
         red. Right at this instance, ready your finder view and you will
         automatically aim at the ghost, take a picture. I would suggest running
         to the mirror near the wall so your field of view would be widest
         possible. Notice that if you have finder view on when you move near the
         mirror, it will go off when the ghost appears.
     --- Man w/LongArms
         When walking to the corridor leading to the door of the Fish-TankRoom,
         the long-armed ghost will appear. You don't necessarily have to capture
         him since you already did it once.
     055 VengeanceInWall
         Under the stairs of the Stairway, right from the door leading to
         Cherry-Atrium the second most scary looking ghost can be found :)
     056 KidRunningAway
         This kid must be in a real hurry, this time it's much more easier. Right
         away when you open the door and move in, you can see him running fast
         over the wooden planks, can't miss him.
     057 Girl in Well
         Upon "using" the well in the Backyard, a creepy looking ghost wants to
         fight you.
     058 Tormented ones
         Another ghost which a lot of people will miss during playing the game.
         Before returning to the Stairway from the Backyard, pay a visit to the
         Narukami-Shrine and take a closer look at the mirror.
     --- Broken Neck
         After getting the picture of the Tormented ones and leaving the
         Narukami-Shrine, the Broken Neck ghosts appears in the halfway of the
     --- Blinded
         She want's to fight you again when you return to the Stairway. Since you
         already have a picture of her, run away to the Cherry-Atrium (she might
         not leave you alone until you get to the Rubble Room).
     059 Bro's Shadow
         Mafuyu's shadow can be seen moving towards the Demon Mouth. I'd suggest
         you to run near the left wall of the Corridor to have err... a better
         view of your brother. He probably doesn't like you since he will
         disappear pretty quickly.
     060 Man Before Door
         Trying the large doors will cause the folklorist to appear at the "door
         lock" on the right side of the doors.
     --- Blinded
         The blinded woman will again, tease you when you move near the stairs.
         She will appear right behind you if you're facing the stairs. You don't
         necessarily have to capture her, but it's easier to get away from the
         Demon Mouth if you do.
     061 Girl Pointing
         Upon entering the Burial Room, the young Kirie can be found pointing at
         the candles on the table.
     --- Blinded
         When you succesfully lit all the red candles, the Blinded Woman will
         again, attack you, from the behind, as usual.
     --- Crawling Girl
         When entering the Doll Room, the crawling ghost will appear again. You
         already have a picture of her so you can decide either to capture her
         again or not.
     062 Kid Hiding
         Another harder one. When you enter the Kimono Room, enable your finder
         view and aim at the gap between the kimonos on the left. Start strafing
         right and the ghost will start running from the right to the left. Your
         finder view will be shut off, so be quick to enable it again, and press
         the shutter button when you can see the boy coming from the right (you
         can see his feet below the kimono).
     063 Boy Hiding
         When Miku walks near the clock, the boy ghost will attack her. This is a
         boss battle, so you can't escape before you capture him.
     064 Vengeance
         Yes, the most horrifying ghost in the game (at least if you're asking
         me). This apparation is between the third and fourth cross-bar on the
         ceiling. You can actually see it's body up there, I think.
     --- LongHair Woman
         When you enter the Hall from behind the wooden partition, all the doors
         open and this evil looking ghost wants to fight with you.
     065 Evil Woman
         Between the first and second partition (when coming from the east), the
         ghost can be found south while standing up the small platform and facing
         west. She is almost up at the ceiling.
         NOTE: If you take a picture of the Evil Woman (065), the Floating Woman
         (107) will NOT appear in the Grand Hall the second time you visit it.
     066 Man in Study
         After taking a picture of the safe in the small room, the novelist can be
         seen for a short time, walking east from the doorway. You have to be very
         swift, since there is no auto-aiming and he walks pretty fast.
     --- Blinded
         The blinded woman will attack you when you enter the second floor of the
     067 ManBeforeStudy
         After opening the safe and getting out of the smaller room inside of the
         Tatami Room, quickly ready your camera and face east to the middle of the
         room to capture the novelist. You have to be quick since there is no
     068 Observatory Man
         And again, just when you get to the middle of the room, the novelist is
         right to your left side, walking east (he is on the north-west corner of
         the room) to the Observatory. Again, no auto-aiming, so be quick.
     069 Monk OutOfDark
         On the second floor of the Stairway, near the few steps leading to the
         Dungeon, a monk can be seen in the window north. Many people will miss
         this ghost.
     070 Woman Hanging
         When walking to the tree, Yae will attack you.
     071 Talking Ghosts
         In the Hidden Passage to the Mask Room, this ghost can be found right
         after the first corner, look up and face west.
     072 Hall Wanderer
         When walking towards the east-end of the corridor, the folklorist can be
         seen entering the Mask Room.
     --- Blinded
         After removing the Happy Mask from the pillar, the blinded woman will
         attack you after the cutscene. Suprisingly, not for the last time.
     073 Folklorist's
         When you pick up the Mask of Reflection from the table, the folklorist
         attacks you.
     074 Man in Hall
         After getting out from the Blinding Room, equip the camera fast, since
         the folklorist appears to your left. He is walking to east in the
     --- Folklorist's
         During entering the Demon Mouth, the folklorist's ghost appears in the
         south-east corner of the third floor of the Demon Mouth.
     --- Blinded
         When you examine the "lock" on the right side of the huge doors, the
         blinded woman attacks you. For the very last time :)
    --- 3rd Night: The Calamity -------------------------------------- CAL05-4 ---
     075 Munakata
         While returning to the Banned Path, before the first Shinto gate, there
         is a hidden ghost down on the left side of the Shinto gate, hidden in
         the rocks.
     076 People Killed
         You will encounter THREE of these guys in the Banned Path. EACH of them
         have to be captured to finish the list.
     077 People Killed
         Same as above.
     078 People Killed
         Same as above the above.
     079 Floating Face
         Upon entering the Corridor, around half-way through to the Rubble Room,
         there will be an enemy encounter, this will be the only time you will
         see this enemy, although it will be a common random encounter in Night
         three. But don't worry, you will have to capture him to move on, so you
         will get him to the list anyway.
     080 Crushed Woman
         Among the pile of junk, there is a female ghost, whose body has probably
         been crushed underneath the junk.
     081 Man in Atrium
         When you enter the Burial Room and walk to the middle, the Family
         Master's ghost is walking towards the door leading to Cherry-Atrium.
     082 TurningMaskMan
         The Family Master's ghost that appears in front of you when you walk
         closer to the door leading to the Stairway in the Cherry-Atrium.
     083 Family Master
         You will have to battle the Family Master in the Buddha Room.
     084 HeadlessPriest
         The first Headless Priest encounter is in the Cherry-Atrium.
     085 Yae
         Before leaving to the Abyss, the ghost of Yae can be seen hanging from
         the tree located north-east of the Cherry-Atrium.
     086 Hirasaka
         In the Abyss, left side of the waterwheel.
     087 HeadlessPriest
         Upon walking near the monument at the northernmost point of the Abyss, a
         Headless Priest appears to battle you.
     088 HeadlessPriest
         In the Square Garden, walking near the monument makes a Headless Priest
         to appear.
     089 LongHair Woman
         The long-haired ghost attacks you when you enter the Fish-TankRoom.
     090 HeadlessPriest
         The last Headless Priest can be found from the Backyard.
     091 Takamine
         Many people forget to capture this ghost. Before returning to the Moon
         Shrine, pay a visit to the Narukami-Shrine and look at the ceiling where
         Mr. Takamine was crucified.
     092 Ogata
         In the closet, where you found Ogata's body, there is a faint apparation
         of his ghost in the back of the closet.
     093 Blind Demon
         Hopefully you exited the Hidden Passage through the door that continues
         to the Lamp Hallway, since you can use it to quickly enter the Blinding
         Room. There is a ghost of the Blinded Woman in the lantern in the middle
         of the room.
     --- Family Master
         Following whatever route to the Grand Hall, when Miku walks to the big
         pool of blood in the middle, the Family Master appears at the eastern end
         of the hall.
     094 Family Master
         Upon beating the Family Master, take a look on the shelf above the pool
         of blood.
     ??? Shrine Maiden
         I'm not sure what it was, but I actually saw a Shrine Maiden in the tiny
         alcove where the Girl Hiding could be found, and she attacked me.
         It probably was just a random encounter, but it was a pretty weird
         occasion. Drop me an email if you also have seen her here.
    --- Final Night: Kirie ------------------------------------------- KIR05-6 ---
     --- Female Head
         After looking down the hole in the floor, a Female Head apparition
         appears at the end of the corridor.
     095 LongHair Woman
         Before the corner where the Female Head appeared, there is sort of a
         straw mat above the cross-bars above you. Face north and look up to find
         the hidden ghost.
     096 Truth Binder
         When you're on the top of the altar at the northern-most point of the
         Buddha Room's cross-bars, look down to the altar and take a picture.
     097 Girl in White
         After Miku gets out of the cage, get ready. As the ghost of young Kirie
         appears at the door to west, right of Miku. She won't be there but for
         only a moment, so be sure to get her before she vanishes.
     098 Kirie's Love
         Paying a visit to the Abyss before going down to the Moon Shrine rewards
         you with two ghosts. The first one can be found west from second
         "island". Look to the sea on the western side of the "island" and you can
         see the ghost.
     099 Burdened Man
         Get to the second "island" and look northeast to find the second ghost.
     --- LongHair Woman
         On the Hell Bridge (seems like Hell has frozen over). After a cut-scene,
         the two ghosts, LongHair Woman and Wandering Man will attack you. You
         most likely already have the LongHair Woman on your list.
     100 Wandering Man
         This is the only place the Wandering Man appears unless you get it as a
         random encounter (which is not very likely if you're playing by the book
         and using as little of time as possible).
     102 Man at Bottom
         Halfway through the bridge, on the north-east side of the bridge (on to
         your left), look down to the bottom of the cave to find the ghost.
     103 Shrine Maiden
         Upon entering the Rope Altar, after the cutscene a Shrine Maiden on the
         rope shrine attacks you. Luckily you can use auto-aiming to capture her.
     104 Six Vengeance
         After finishing the Shrine Maiden, move to the third (no matter if you go
         from the left or the right side, it will be the third in any case) alcove
         near the shrine (or south-east of the room, although it's kinda hard to
         figure directions in the room), look up to the center of the ceiling and
         take a picture. As a ground-mark, there should be a rope on your left
         when you're taking the picture.
     --- Shrine Maiden
         Another shrine maiden will attack you when you walk through the Baptism
     105 Kirie
         And there we have it the final boss, Kirie. This is actually the EASIEST
         fight in the game, lol. Just finish her off to get her to the ghost list.
    --- Random appearances ------------------------------------------- RAN05-2 ---
     106 Bound Man
         Apart from the Bound Man Mafuyu encountered, Miku has to fight and
         capture one to fulfill the ghost list. They randomly appear throughout
         the mansion when you use too much time while running around. You could
         actually go and get all the additional items (like Spirit Stones and
         Elixirs) and with luck, you might see one of these. They usually roam
         around at Night 1 or Night 2, around the Rope Hallway, Fireplace and
         Kimono Room.
     107 Floating Woman
         I actually have no idea where these ghosts can be seen the most often,
         since the first time I played the game, I didn't capture the Evil Woman
         from the Grand Hall. I'm sorry about that.
         NOTE: If you take a picture of the Evil Woman (065), the Floating Woman
         (107) will NOT appear in the Grand Hall the second time you visit it.
     108 Wandering Monk
         During Night 3, unless you're really speedrunning through the mansion,
         you will most likely run into one. I think you can find one most easiest
         in the Hidden Passage, Abyss and Stairway.
    === Frequently asked questions ===================================== FAQ06 ===
     Q: Person 'X' already did a guide containing all the ghosts!
     A: Where other guides list ghosts and their abilities, this guide
        concentrates to guide you where and how to find each ghost to achieve 100%
        full Ghost List (in order to get the Zero seal).
     Q: Do I need to finish the game first before trying to capture all the
     A: Yes. There's a ghost in the beginning of the first night in a point
        where Miku doesn't already have the camera.
     Q: Why do I have to start a new game, I already have some of the ghosts and a
        game in progress.
     A: Not necessarily. Just make sure this is the second time you're playing
        (with the existing save-game) I'm not a psychic so I can't tell
        which of the ghosts you already have captured. To get the Zero Ability you
        only need to capture all the ghosts and buy the ability. As long as you
        play through the game following this list at least once (plus doing the
        intro with the camera), you should get all the ghosts.
     Q: I saw a ghost of some sort which you didn't mention about, why's that?
     A: Most likely it was a random-encounter (which have been explained above),
        or just a random triggered event (like the ghost playing Koto in the Koto
        room :)
        But if you're absolutely sure it was an actual ghost, please, tell me
        about it.
    === Final words ==================================================== FIN07 ===
     There might be few errors, especially myself having mixed up the folklorist
     and the novelist in the past. These will be fixed as I find about them.
     Oh yeah, stealing other people's work is not fun! >:| so hopefully you will
     not COPY, MODIFY or DISTRIBUTE this guide.
     Have fun hunting ghosts!
