|Dr. Peter Venkman|
|Name||Dr. Peter Venkman|
|Vehicles and/or Gadgets||Ecto-1|
Peter Venkman is portrayed as the "lazy" Ghostbuster. He doesn't usually take his work seriously, has a dry sense of humour, and flirts with women, including clients such as Dana Barrett and Ilyssa Selwyn. While Peter is a scientist, he isn't as technically experienced or academically inclined as Egon and Ray, and also tends to be more aggressive when fighting ghosts.
Peter also slacks off on experiments and usually focuses on the women or other subjects, as in the first movie he is testing sixth senses and shocks the boy in the experiment for getting the answers wrong (even though he was really getting a majority of them right) and refuses to zap the pretty blonde (even though nearly all her answers were wrong). Peter is also a very outspoken person, as he back-talked to EPA representative Walter Peck and provoked him when the discussion shifted to the storage facility. This encounter led the Containment Unit being shut down and all the ghosts escaping over New York. Peter's fast-talking, however, "bargained" the percentage from the broker they consulted in mortgaging Ray's house (in order to lease the Firehouse), as well getting their first payday of $5,000 made busting Slimer. His "gift of gab" also won over the mayor's judgment against Walter Peck.
Peter Venkman alongside the other Ghostbusters are sent to trap all of the ghosts that escaped from the damaged containment unit. After the Ecto-1 crashes into a Dropship, General Zod comes out of a vortex and captures the Ghostbusters in his dropship, including Venkman who tries to escape. Later he and his colleagues are freed by Batman, Wyldstyle and Gandalf, and helps them by capturing the ghosts that were protecting Zod.
Venkman and the rest of the Ghostbusters are seen in the underground, (presumably looking for the River of Slime like in Ghostbusters 2) and see a light coming toward them, which turns out to be the trio seeking their help again.
During the fight on the riftloop, the Ghostbusters are summoned by the heroes to help them keep Lord Vortech distracted by attacking him with their proton guns. They later escaped from the riftloop before the battle continued on Foundation Prime, since when the Ecto-1 lands on the planet it was empty. They're later seen with the other heroes after Vortech is defeated.

- His new hairpiece is also the same as the Seventh Doctor's, but the Seventh Doctor does not have a physical minifigure. His hair is also usually hidden under his hat.
