“Raaaaargh! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!”|
—The Phantom Gremlin pointing at the Princess Gremlin.
Phantom spawned at Clamp Center in 1990. Half of its face has been horribly scarred from getting acid splashed onto its face. Its character is a parody of the Phantom of the Opera as it dons a mask and is later shown playing an organ, in a homage to the Phantom of the opera.
He is first seen in the Clamp Center laboratory where he has acid (saying Acid : warning, do not throw in face) splashed in his face by the Acid-Throwing Gremlin, whereupon then he cackles and dons a white mask. He is later seen briefly during the Brain Gremlin's rendition of the song "New York, New York" and in his last appearance, he is playing an organ and another gremlin who is dressed as a damsel sneaks up behind him and unmasks him. The Phantom Gremlin gets mad about this, so he attacks the gremlin and then snarls and points to the camera as his figure blurs, reminiscent of the famous scene in the 1925 film adaptation starring Lon Chaney, Sr. as the Phantom. He presumably dies along with most of the other gremlins (except Greta) at the end when they are all wet by water and all electrocuted by the Electric Gremlin.
- The Phantom Gremlin is a spoof of the classic book, The Phantom of the Opera's main antagonist, Eric AKA the Phantom.
