The Screamin' Banshee is the antagonist in Mater and the Ghostlight.
"The Screamin' Banshee lurks outside of Radiator Springs in Ornament Valley. The Banshee waits for anyone who wanders out alone in the darkness of night. He is rarely spotted but is well known through myths and legends. Nothing can make the Banshee show fear. However, he is a bit puzzled by Mater."
He was seen at the end of Mater and the Ghostlight, with Mater in front of him. However, Mater doesn't know that it's the Screamin' Banshee and warns him of himself. Then, he drives away, drives back, says goodnight, then drives away again, leaving the Banshee puzzled.
- Screamin' Banshee's name is based on the Irish legend of the Banshee, who is traditionally a female spirit; however, Mater calls the Banshee a "he".
- Screamin' Banshee is one of two cars that has an excavator's bucket as a jaw. The second is Dr. Frankenwagon's Monster.
- In a comic story in the Italian Cars Magazine is a male, pacific, monster and Mater's friend, but when Lightning calls he (thought, in the Italian edition of the short, is a "she") "ragazzone" ("big buddy"), he rages.
