The Ghostly Wail is an extremely powerful ability. The user releases a highly destructive stream of ecto-energy from his or her vocal cords and mouth. It is accompanied by a distinct ghostly moaning sound. This power is unique to Danny Phantom and his dark future self.

In the "The Ultimate Enemy" future, Dan Phantom develops this power and uses it to bring devastation upon Amity Park. Later, after meeting his dark future self, Danny gains the ability to use the Ghostly Wail himself, and uses his new power to defeat Dan.
The Ghostly Wail is Danny's most powerful technique. With it, Danny can cause massive damage to ghosts and humans and can destroy solid objects or send them flying. It can completely destroy ghosts that are too weak to withstand it.
- When Danny uses this power, it drains his energy extremely quickly. Just one use can leave him with no energy left at all, forcing him to revert to his powerless human form. Inexplicably, he does not suffer this drawback in "Phantom Planet."
Dan Phantom uses this power in "The Ultimate Enemy" to destroy Amity Park's ghost shield. He later uses it against Sam and Tucker, but they escape by using Clockwork's time medallions to return to Clockwork's lair.
In "The Ultimate Enemy," Danny was able to defeat all his old enemies in the Ghost Zone at once with his Ghostly Wail. He later uses it twice in one battle to defeat Dark Danny.
In "Phantom Planet," once Danny regains his powers, he uses his Ghostly Wail to repel all the enemies who were ganging up on him in the Ghost Zone.
Why he didn't use such a powerful technique against Undergrowth (in "Urban Jungle"), Vortex (in "Torrent of Terror"), or Nocturn (in "Frightmare") is unknown. It is possible that he didn't want to take the chance that his attack would fail against these extremely resilient ghosts, as if it did he would have been rendered defenseless.
