  • If Flesheating Ghoul is honorably killed by  Deliverance, since the 3/3 copy of it is summoned prior to the completion of it's death, the death of the 1st ghoul buffs the attack of the copy.
  • An old video by Trump shows him reacting to a Ghoul being revived by  Redemption and being buffed by its own death, thinking 'it ate itself'.[1] Actually, it is buffing itself from the  Spellbreaker's death - it was played second and died simultaneously. Flesheating Ghoul cannot trigger off the same death that summons it.[2]

Ghouls act as the shock troops for the Scourge. These lumbering, rotting corpses were once innocent townsfolk who have made the final transition into true undeath. Ghouls have great stamina and revel in combat with living beings. Ghouls are ravenous cannibals who can replenish their health by devouring the flesh of fallen warriors, friend and foe alike.
Ghouls have the appearance of a bent, twisted humanoid figure. Much of their flesh has rotted away, exposing a fair amount of bone and twisting facial features until they are unrecognizable as human. As undeath progresses in a victim, it twists and corrupts the body, growing fangs and claws. The ghoul is the final stage of the process of undeath.
Only the Scourge and a few other necromancers know the secret of creating ghouls. Rumors say that zombies transform into ghouls when they make the transcendence to "true undeath", perhaps reclaiming a small portion of their former intelligence in the process. However, death knights have raised ghouls to their will to fight along side them as well. It is likely they know the secret to raise the dead to their command as well.
