The Ghosts of Christmas are a trio of spirits that parody the three ghosts from A Christmas Carol, all debuting (and currently only appearing) in An Angry Nerd Christmas Carol.
Ghost of Christmas Past
- "I'm here to take you back to the past!"
- —The Ghost of Christmas Past
The Ghost of Christmas Past was the first ghost the Nerd encountered, fittingly. On Christmas Eve in 2007, he took the Nerd back to when he was a little kid playing the NES for the first time. He is played by Stuttering Craig from ScrewAttack.
Ghost of Christmas Present
- "I'm the Ghost of Christmas Present, bitch.""
- —The Ghost of Christmas Present
The Ghost of Christmas Present the second ghost that appears. He visits the Nerd when it seems that he has lost his Christmas spirit and takes him back to when he reviewed Shaq Fu. He is played by Handsome Tom from ScrewAttack.
Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come
- "I know who you are!"
- —The Nerd to the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come
The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come is the third and final ghost encountered by the AVGN. Perhaps this is its actual form, or perhaps only the Nerd's perception of it because it appears to him as Dracula from Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. On Christmas Eve, the Ghost showed the Nerd the events leading to his death while playing Boogie on the Nintendo Wii. Directly afterward, the Ghost showed the Nerd his gravestone which was actually one that appeared in Simon's Quest.
