This article is about the Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated incarnation of the character. For the original incarnation in The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, see Vincent Van Ghoul.

Vincent Van Ghoul is Shaggy Rogers and Scooby-Doo's favorite B-movie horror actor.

Physical appearance

Vincent is a middle-aged Caucasian male, who has black hair, with white streaks. He wears a purple cape, blue shirt, and has a small mustache.


Vincent mostly acts dramatic in his clothes and speech the same way he would in his movies. He thinks highly of himself as a "thespian" and that he's improved roles for people.[1] However, his bravery in the real world is quite low, and when he is scared he says, "I think I'm going to tinkle..." It's only through motivation that Vincent will throw himself in danger in order to stop it.[1]

When he had to direct a play on the history of Crystal Cove, he knew little about where it even was, resulting in him being heckled by an audience member.[2]


Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

Season one

Shaggy and Scooby watched several Vincent Van Ghoul movie marathons on TV across several days, which included him saving the day by vanquishing an army of vampires. In another movie, he needed some meat to go with his huge feast. He brought a chainsaw into the dungeon to slew a pig beast.[3]

He had to give up his love with a lady. She wouldn't leave until his face turned into a lizard-like one and scared the woman away.[4]

Shaggy and Scooby had dinner with him in person at his mansion (after the former won a contest about how much he liked Vincent), but then had to save him from Nightfright.[1]

In another movie appearance, he attacked zombies with a stethoscope.[5]
