In Phasmophobia, the Obake’s unique evidence eludes players in a particular way thanks to the ghost’s latent abilities meant to confuse. The journal states the Obake is a shapeshifter, which can be a little misleading.
New players often assume the Obake is actually able to shapeshift in Phasmophobia, possibly taking on the shape of other players or even objects. This is false. Though the Obake is technically a shapeshifter, there is only one way it manifests: through the Fingerprints evidence.
The Obake can be determined through three pieces of unique evidence:
- EMF 5
- Ghost Orb
Fingerprints is the only evidence that may show the Obake’s unique ability, which is that sometimes the handprint may have six fingers instead of five. This ability sounds cool, but the handprint left behind isn’t all that different from the ones you can get from other ghosts.
Additionally, unique evidence comes with the added burden that Obake Fingerprints can disappear in half the time they do from other types of ghosts. Normally, Fingerprints will disappear after two minutes. Obake Fingerprints, whether the six-fingered prints or not, can disappear after only a minute.
It’s worth noting that the new Mimic ghost may be able to imitate the Obake’s unique evidence. Keep this in mind in your investigations to avoid getting too excited and choosing the wrong ghost.

That’s all you need to know about seeing the unique evidence of the Obake in Phasmophobia. In my experience, Obake tend to be particularly aggressive ghosts who hunt often. Though of course, that may not be the case for you. Take a look at our other Phasmophobia guides to learn more about effective ghost hunting.
