The Ghost Chess is the name of a group in MÄR: Marchen Awakens Romance. They are a sub-group in the Chess Pieces like the Zonnens. The Ghost Chess are anime-only characters featured in the filler eps 86-93.
It consisted of Chess members who were infatuated with Ghost ÄRMs. They were used against Team MÄR after they won The War Games. The Ghost Chess make their appearance after the battle between Rolan and Candice against Alviss and Dorothy. The Leader uses a special pendant that speeds up Alviss' Zombie Tattoo until it takes complete control over Alviss, putting Alviss under the control of Phantom. They later reappear and capture Team MÄR, along with Chaton and Loco, who happened to be there at the time. With Loco's help, all of them escape. Unfortunately, however, due to Loco's constant use of her Darkness ÄRM throughout the escape, Loco is aged back into a baby.
These are the members of the Ghost Chess.

The leader of the Ghost Chess and admirer of Phantom, he blames Team MÄR and Ginta for Phantom's current depressed state. He seeks the legendary ÄRM of the sky castle Clavier in order to restore Phantom to his reign and usurps even the King and Queen. Using the Ghost ÄRM "The Rondo of Time", he accelerates Alviss' Zombie Tattoo and presents a mindwashed Alviss to Phantom, much to Rolan's chagrin. He's eventually destroyed by Ginta.
