Repsac is a male ghost character who appears exclusively in JumpStart Adventures 4th Grade: Haunted Island.


Repsac has four long fingers on each hand with pointed fingernails. His eyes appear to be entirely white with no pupils. He has a large nose and crooked teeth. His body is dark blue. Like most depictions of ghosts, he has no legs or feet, and his body ends in a wisp.

Repsac also appears to always be grinning. Even when expressing disappointment (be it sarcastic or legitimate), his lips maintain a smile.


Repsac is a menacing ghost who serves Ms. Grunkle loyally. He tends to maintain a calm, yet threatening disposition, but will express smug mirth when his riddles aren't answered correctly.

In Games

JumpStart Adventures 4th Grade: Haunted Island (1996)

Repsac roams around the Haunted Island, and occasionally springs upon the player to ask multiple choice questions that will deplete the player's health if answered incorrectly. Most of his questions seem to involve science and grammar, as well as sentence structure. This is presumably due to the fact that the game does not have activities which specifically address these topics.

Repsac can be encountered on any of the island paths, as well as inside the Labyrinth. Repsac can also still be encountered after the player has completed the game's goal of defeating Ms. Grunkle and rescuing the kids, if the player chooses to keep exploring the island afterwards. If the player uses the map, Repsac's appearances are less frequent.

  • "You again? I love a good challenge."
  • (If a question is answered correctly) "You're right. But I'll stump time."

  • (If a question is answered incorrectly) "Hmm...too bad. [Chuckles] That'll cost you some health points!"
