Feats:


- Is classified as a class 7 ghost, which are incredibly powerful entities such as gods and demons 
- Started off as the shape shifting god: Gozer, who destroyed/conquered various worlds 
- Became the "destructor" form of Gozer for Earth thanks to Ray Stantz
- Actually succeeded in wiping all life from earth in an alternate time line
- Terrorized the city of New York several times
- Won an award for best costume (because some how no one caught on to the fact that he was a giant marshmallow ghost god)
- Was actually reformed (Real Ghost Busters)
- Helped the Ghostbusters fight a giant mantis (Real Ghostbusters)
- Was once the lieutenant for the evil goddess "Janna" (Genesis game)
- Destroyed a giant zombie doppleganger of himself (IDW comics)
- Did battle with his sibling "Tiamat" in Ray's mind and took over Ray's body (IDW comics)
- Once helped the Ghostbusters stop the "Mini Puffs" and travel back in time to undo their very own destruction
- Roasted the Mythbusters with his mad rapping skills (ERB)

Physicality: 




Strength:
- Despite being made of marshmallow he's surprisingly strong
- Is still strong enough to punch a monster of equal size and send it flying
- Can smash through and tear down buildings with ease
- Can easily lift and throw large chunks of debris or cars/buses at people
Durability:
- Can take all four Ghost Buster's proton packs to the face
- Is immune to toxic waste, poison goop, and similar hazards
- Though his body is soft and spongy like actual Marshmallows
- So his body can be easily burned/punctured (But his healing factor even things out)
Speed:
- Can some times react to proton streams being fired at him
- Though on foot, Staypuft is INCREDIBLY slow due to his massive size and weight
- Though when Staypuft shrinks down, he becomes much faster and can run as fast as a peak human

Special abilities/Powers:



Marshmallow body/Healing Factor/Immortality:
- Can be ripped/torn up and keep going due to being made of marshmallow
- Has no bones or vital organs of any kind
- Wounds heal/close up after a short amount of time
- Though Stapuft does still feel pain
- Can fling/spit out melted chunks of himself at targets (Also does this in the game "Ghostbusters World")
- Melted chunks are super sticky, so they can restrain targets
- Some times Staypuft will throw fiery chunks of himself that not only restrain enemies, but burn them as well
- Can create spawn creatures from his body (See "minions" below)
- Immortal: Will always reform as long as there are areas with large super natural occurrences (even if his physical body is destroyed)
- Spirit can retreat to other dimensions to regain strength over time (Though it can take days, months, or even years)
- If Staypuft is pulled back into the dimension he was beaten before he can regain his strength, he can be killed and finally cease to exist



Flight:
- Able to levitate off the ground and fly/float like a parade balloon
- Unknown how fast he can fly (Seems to be pretty slow)

Size by Doctorworm1987
Size Manipulation:
- Can shrink down to a much smaller form
- Can be used to fit into/enter places he normally couldn't fit (such as inside houses/buildings)
- When smaller, Staypuft can actually move/run around quicker
- Even when shrunken down to human size, Staypuft still has super strength (Enough to lift and throw a car and smash through walls)
- Can become small enough to ride his "Terror Dog" (See below)
- Can return back to normal size at any time

Stapuftattack01 by Doctorworm1987
Fire balls:
- Can shoot a small blast of fire
- Fire homes in and pursues the target for a few seconds before burning out


Eye Lasers
- Can be aimed and fired off in different directions

Breath by DoctorMooDB
Breath:
- Can exhale a great amount of air to send some one flying back and scatter them around
- Also damages them


Personality:


- Varies from incarnation and can be very inconsistent:
- Some times a dimwitted gentle giant who means no harm (The Real Ghostbusters)
- However, he will still fight back against what ever attacks him (The Real Ghost Busters)
- Some times a mindless destroyer who just grunts and roars (The Real Ghost Busters)
- Some times still has the mentality of Gozer (IDW Comics/Movie)
- Gozer is evil, sadistic, and manipulative as well as incredibly arrogant/cocky 
(IDW Comics/Movie)
- Gozer enjoys entering peoples minds and messing with them psychologically 
(IDW Comics/Movie)
- Turns out that Gozer actually resents/hates the form of Stay Puft due to Stay Puft being so big and cuddly looking opposed to intimidating (IDW comics) but is stuck in it thanks to Ray


Minions:


Mini2 by Doctorworm1987
Marshmallow Mini:
- Are spawned by Staypuft when he throws his melted chunks
- Can shoot fire balls
- Can bite
- Are actually quite quick and can scale buildings faster than Staypuft
- Linked to Stay Puft physically and utilize a “hive mind”-like connection
- weak, so often travel in large numbers
- Easily blown up with explosives/powerful energy beams



Stay Puft Mini Men:
- Also spawned from Stay Puft’s marshmallow chunks
- Drench people in their marshmallow residue
- Can get them stuck/paralyzed

MiniMarshMallow by DoctorMooDB
Mini Stay Puft:
- Small clones of Stay-puft that throw gooey marshmallows at opponents.
- Staypuft can spawn many of them at once from his hat.


Mini Puffs:
- Sentient marshmallow excretion expelled from Staypuft's body
- In other words: They're living thinking marshmallow poop
- Are very aggressive and attack anyone/anything, including staypuft himself (Though they can't really hurt him)
- Use thier sheer numbers to over welm enemies from all directions
- Some of them even know martial arts and attack with flying kicks
- Explode upon death, covering everything in sticky marshmallow and leaving them stuck
- Also, these marshmallows do not follow orders and just attack things randomly, mush to Staypuft's discontent


Ghosts:
- Unlike the rest of Staypuft's minions, these aren't made of marshmallows
- Instead, they're just generic weak ghosts that fly around attacking opponents
- Since they're ghosts, they're most likely intangible to regular weapons/attacks
- Can be summoned when Staypuft is Gozer (Pictured on the left)
- Might be able to be summoned at any time since Staypuft IS Gozer (See below)


Terror Dog:
- Can be summoned by Staypuft and used as a mount
- Can ONLY be used as a mount when Staypuft is shrunken down to human size
- Based on Gozer's Terror Dog minions "Zuul" and "Vinz Clortho" 
- Faster than Staypuft on foot: Can run as fast as a car
- Can ram into enemies head first like a bull
- Also had two additional forms it can alternate between:

Terror Dog Destroyer:
- Second form of "The Terror Dog"
- A two headed form that shoots fire balls 
- Can fire in two directions at once
- Can also give simultaneous flaming bites


Soaring Terror Dog:
- Third form of "Terror Dog"
- Gains wings, allowing for flight
- Can also shoot blasts of fire from it's mouth

Other Forms:



True form: Gozer the Gozerian:
- Gozer's true form: Not used to bring wide spread destruction (Only does so as Staypuft)
- Able to shape shift: Becoming different people and monsters
- Despite being a shapeshifter, Gozer has only one "Destructor form" per realm
- However, Gozer can take as many "Destructor" forms as he wants in the Astral plane or Mental Plane (I.E. In people's dreams/minds) 
- Is able to read minds
- Can infiltrate dreams/minds
- Very quick, agile and acrobatic (Could dodge the Ghostbuster's proton beams)
- Can disrupt natural forces resulting in storms and earth quakes
- Can manipulate the weather
- Has Pyrokinesis
- Can fire lightening blasts from palms
- Can become invisible or intangible if he wishes
- Can possess human bodies
- Can travel between dimensions
- Can increase paranormal activity with his mere presence 
- Can summon smaller weaker ghosts to fight by his side (or act as decoys)
- Can fire shock waves at the opponent in a straight line
- Immortal/Spiritual: Can't be killed like a regular human/mortal (Unless completely eradicated)
- Chances are some of these abilities can be used by/manifest as Staypuft (Considering Staypuft is Gozer)

Past Destructor Forms:
- Gozer has taken other forms over time
- Most notable are a giant Torb (Far left) and a Giant Sloar (Second from the left)
- It is not clear what unique attributes these forms have or share aside from massive size
- It's unknown how many other forms Gozer has total, as there are MANY more than just these
- Can only change between these forms in the astral plane, mental plane, or dream plane
- Otherwise, is just limited to "Staypuft" and "Gozer"

Weaknesses:

Weaknesses by Doctorworm1987
- Very slow, heavy, and sluggish
-- Being heated/melted slows him down further
- Body is very soft/easy to penetrate

- Easily angered/lead around/distracted
- Incredibly arrogant and cocky
- Knows he looks adorable, and hates it
- Often just sticks to brute force during battle and mainly relies on out muscling his opponents
- Can be completely blown up and reduced to nothing with a powerful enough explosive
- Can actually be completely destroyed once and for all if pulled back into the dimension where he was defeated and finished off before he can properly regenerate
- Gozer can only use one destructor form per realm (unless he's in the astral, dream, or mental plane)  
- Can be captured/sealed with a "
Mega trap" or powerful magic
- Gozer's essence can be drained away through a "Mega Trap" or powerful magic
- Can be banished to other dimensions (and it'll take awhile for him to regain his strength/return)
- True powers are unknown due to the Ghostbusters constant interference with his coming/resurgence 
- "Staypuft" could potentially be Gozer's weakest destructor form compared to past ones



 "I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay Puft!" - Ray Stantz

"Nice thinkin', Ray." - Peter Venkman

First off, this is a composite Staypuft.

I'm well aware that Staypuft's personality, powers, weaknesses, and even origin/story change in different incarnations and are very inconsistent and contradictory.

So what you see is a generalized composite that I tried to keep as consistent as I could given all there was to work with.
