Zuul, a ferocious female Terror Dog, was The Gatekeeper of Gozer. Being female, she had shorter horns than her male counterpart, Vinz Clortho, The Keymaster.

She was worshipped in 6000 BC by various primitive civilizations, and, along with Vinz, had a gargoyle crafted in her likeness flanking the temple on the roof of the Shandor Building.

Zuul originally appeared standing guard in Gozer's Temple inside Dana Barrett's refrigerator as she had arrived from getting groceries. The demon growled out its name at her in a horrendous demonic voice, frightening her into visiting the Ghostbusters for help. After it's original apparition, both gargoyles "hatched" from their statues atop the Shandor Building in the middle of a thunderstorm. The Terror Dogs possessed two tenants in the building, Dana and her neighbor Louis Tully, in order to copulate as part of the ritual required to open the gateway to Gozer's dimension.

Zuul in the body of Dana Barrett

Zuul chose to possess Dana Barrett, manifesting her possession in Dana by making her very sexually aggressive and giving her the ability to levitate, growl monstrously like a demonic dog, and shape shift into one.

After successfully possessing Dana, Zuul could speak in Dana's voice and use her human body but could not access her memory or knowledge. Awaiting the arrival of the Keymaster, Zuul encountered Peter Venkman when he arrived for his pre-arranged date with Dana. When Peter sees her he is immediately taken aback by the radical change in appearance Dana had undergone through the Gatekeeper's control. Catching Peter off guard Zuul (in Dana's body) asked him if he was the Keymaster, to which he replied negatively. Disappointed, Zuul quickly slammed the door in his face. Peter regrouped and knocked on her door once again, which she opened. Seemingly unaware of their previous encounter a mere moments ago, Zuul asks him once again if he is the Keymaster. This time Peter lies in order to gain entry to the apartment, stating he is a friend of the Keymaster. Zuul nods her head, smiling and lets him in. As Peter closes the entry door behind her, he asks for her name. She introduces herself as Zuul, the Gatekeeper as he looks around her living room. Peter notices the apartment walls and furniture are oozing ectoplasm and realizes the severity of Dana's situation. Peter cautiously asks her what are their plans for the day as Zuul walks into the bedroom. He follows behind as Zuul excitedly speaks of preparing for the coming of Gozer, “the Destructor”. Peter stares at Zuul as she lays back on the bed where she proceeds to wantonly seduce him, staring lustily at Peter as he walks into the bedroom. He speaks casually to her, ignoring her seductive advances. Zuul responds by intensifying her aggressive seduction writhing up and down

on her bed, commanding Peter to "take her", passionately making out with him and declaring she wants him inside of her. Peter withstood her advances, insisting instead on speaking to "Dana" the point that Zuul, increasingly frustrated by his rejection, responds in an otherworldy, demonic voice, "There is no Dana, only Zuul!". Peter, undaunted, gives Zuul to the count of three to let him speak with "Dana". As he counts down Zuul (in Dana's body) exhibits further signs of demonic possession. First rolling her eyes while purring demonically, then violently jerking her head while panting desperately like a dog and finally concluding their "date" by growling and barking ferociously before levitating above her bed. Finally free of Peter's grasp, Zuul snarled and roared monstrously as she continued to rise above the bed. Quietly observing the purring Zuul float in midair, Peter calmly asks her to come down to which the floating demoness angrily responds with a horrendous guttural bark which finally scares him. Afterwards Peter sedates Zuul and leaves her unconscious on her bed, panting like a rabid dog, while he heads over to the Ghostbusters headquarters.

When the firehouse explodes, releasing all of the ghosts onto New York City, Zuul awakes with a snarl, sensing the release of psychic energy. She rises from her bed and stares ecstatically at the events from the apartment then, as the supernatural energy flows past her window, unleashes another monstrous roar which causes her entire living room wall to explode outward leaving a contented Zuul staring through the haze. Louis, possessed by Vinz Clortho, the Keymaster of Gozer escaped the Ghostbusters custody during the firehouse blast and now wanders through the streets in search of Zuul when he walks by the Shandor Building. He suddenly stops, jaw dropping in shock as he turns to face the building, turning his gaze upwards to notice Dana's demolished apartment. He reaches Dana's floor and bursts through the apartment door to notice the ravishing Zuul lying seductively on her sofa. The possessed neighbors introduce each other then engage in a passionate kiss, interrupted when Zuul turns to lead Vinz toward a dark, ominous staircase up to the Temple of Gozer where the two demons, in their human forms, proceed to consummate their union as part of the ritual to prepare for the coming of their master, Gozer.

As the Ghostbusters make their way toward the Temple, Zuul and Vinz Clortho awake after having sex atop a large altar. Zuul sits up coyly, her evil eyes scanning the rooftop when Vinz awakes with a contented grin and dangling limp belt between his legs. The two demons briefly look at each other before they slide off of the altar. They stare in awe at the top of the Temple as it is struck by lightning from the hellish storm above. Zuul and Vinz take their places atop the stone pedestals previously mounted by the Terror Dogs where they await and watch excitedly as the massive structure before them is struck by lightning bolts shooting from the dark sky. As the Ghostbusters close in on the Temple, Zuul and Vinz raise their arms to the sky when, suddenly, lightning shoots from the top of the Temple striking both demons who redirect the energy toward the large Temple door causing it to slowly open. Upon completion of the opening of the portal for Gozer, Zuul and Vinz absorb the supernatural energy, briefly making their bones glow and causing their bodies to gyrate violently until they succumb and lower their arms down to their pedestals, transforming Dana and Louis' human bodies into Zuul and Vinz Clortho's natural dog forms.

Upon completion of their transformation their bones briefly glow, revealing an entirely different and monstrous bone structure. Zuul briefly stares at her demonic body before she and Vinz turn to notice the Ghostbusters, barking menacingly at them and wagging their tails before taking their places beside Gozer at the Temple. Zuul and Vinz snarl and roar ferociously when Gozer electrocutes the Ghostbusters. The dogs were later calcified when the Ghostbusters crossed the streams and reversed the particle flow through the gateway, creating a massive explosion. Dana was extracted, alive and unharmed, from Zuul's burnt corpse. However, some of Zuul's essence remained in Dana. For a few weeks, she had a passive aggressive personality and an appetite for rare meat. But, that finally passed, and Zuul was gone.
