The Messenger Wiki

Manhattan Banshee is an enemy in The Messenger.



Manhattan Banshee is a purple or pale blue ghost lady with white skin. Her long low-cut dress and long flowing hair are both the same shade of purple or pale blue. The hem of her dress is in tatters. Upon death, she lets out a high-pitched shriek.


Manhattan Banshee flies in a horizontal line towards Ninja. If Ninja changes elevation, she stops moving horizontally and starts moving vertically until she matches Ninja's elevation again. She can fly through walls in order to reach him.


  • Manhattan Banshee is referred to as "lady" in the sound files.
  • The name "Manhattan Banshee" is most likely a Ghostbusters reference. The main characters of Ghostbusters live in Manhattan and have their first ghost encounter with a purple librarian ghost lady.[1]
