Born to Ghost Hunters, Maddie and Jack Fenton, Danny Fenton was just a regular 14 year old teenager, until one day, his parents created a new invention, the Ghost Portal, and tested it out only for it not to work and walked away sadly, so Danny decided to check it and try it out, if they missed something, upon pressing a button, the Ghost Portal turned on zapping him, as a result, his molecules were fused with Ghost DNA, giving him the powers and abilities of a ghost.
From then on, sporting the name Danny Phantom as his superhero ego.

- Ghost-Weapons: In his ghost form he is vulnerable to all anti-ghost weapons, such as the Fenton and Plasmius' gadgets. Some devices can hurt him not only in his ghost form but also in his human form, namely the Specter Deflector.
- Spectral Energy Neutralizing Devices: Over the series, he has been depowered by several gadgets designed to neutralize his ghost energy such as the Spectral Energy Neutralizing Box and the Plasmius Maximus. Undergrowth's plants can also absorb his ghost energy weakening his powers.
- Ecto-ranium: As a half ghost he can be hurt by the ecto-ranium and weapons created with this same material.
- Blood Blossoms: when in their presence, he is rendered not only powerless, but also he will suffer in agony until the flowers were removed. Vlad referred to them as "a primitive Specter Deflector". Since Vlad was able to stand near them in his human form, it is safe to say that Danny can do the same.
- Infrared Vision: Danny can be seen with infrared visors as he still irradiates heat in his ghost form.
- Danny cannot overshadow a person or a ghost if he is not fully concentrated, or if he is taken out of the overshadowed by anti-ghosts gadgets. Also, Danny cannot overshadow, someone with enough willpower to stop him.

- Overshadowing: Possession of someone.
- Flight: Is capable of flight.
- Ghost Ray: Can fire green energy rays of ectoplasm.

- Ectoplasmic Energy Shield: Can generate a green force field around himself.
- Cryokinesis: Can create ice constructs and fire freezing capabilities.
- Ghost Sense: Is capable of sensing ghost activity, releasing a breath.
- Duplication: Can create copies of himself that are aware of being copies, though this is rather difficult.
- Ghostly Wail: Proves to be Danny's most powerful technique. Releases a very loud and powerful scream. Has effects comparable to a tornado, such as shattering glass and paralyzation of living things. A major downside is that this reverts Danny back to his base form.
Key: Season 1 | Season 2-3 | Ecto-Skeleton
Note: Danny Phantom is not granted Acausality due lack of information in verse. While he did continue of existing despite the erasure of his past, it should be noted that he was under Clockwork's observation the entire time. Thus it cannot be determined whether Danny continued to exist due to his own power or due intervention from Clockwork that has simply gone unstated.
