Pandora's Box is a box that contains evil horrors from the Ghost Zone and Earth.
- Main article: Boxed Up Fury
In "Boxed Up Fury," the Box Ghost, desperate to gain the attention and the fear of both Earth and the Ghost Zone, sneaks into Pandora's lair and steals the box. Upon opening it, the Box Ghost absorbs the box's power, greatly increasing his power and causing him to become more malevolent. Only through trickery from Danny's side could Pandora act in time to stop the Box Ghost (switching the setting on the box from "spew" to "reclaim") and retrieve her box.
Pandora's Box has two settings, "spew" and "reclaim". Opening the box while it is set to "spew" causes an evil within the box to be released, which increases in severity with each subsequent opening of the box. Entities contained within the box include unicorns, bats, frogs, snakes, a pegasus, and a giant fire-freathing hydra. Opening the box also releases evil energy which makes the user more powerful. If the box is set to "reclaim" mode, it will recapture all of the entities it released.
