Ghost Vases are obstacles/enemies in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. They are floating vases found in Ghost Houses. At first they stand like normal vases. BUT! When the player nears the Ghost Vase it turns a purplish-pink, as shown in the picture, and fly into the air. It eventually stops and rotates faster. After this, it flies toward the player. If it succeeds in hitting the player, the player will take damage. The player can avoid the Ghost Vase by simply jumping over it or running away from it. If the Ghost Vase misses its target, it will continue to fly until it hits a platform or wall where it breaks and releases a Coin. Ghost Vases are found mainly in the World 3 Ghost House and the World 4 Ghost House, however, not all Ghost Vases act like this; others act as if they are for decoration.
