          懒鬼 lǎnguǐ (“lazy devil”) – lazybones
          酒鬼 jiǔguǐ (“alcohol ghost”) – alcoholic; drunkard
          醉鬼 zuguǐ (“drunk devil”) – drunkard
          烟鬼 yānguǐ (“smoke devil”) – opium addict; chain smoker
          调皮鬼 tiáopguǐ (“naughty devil”) – naughty child
          捣蛋鬼 dǎodnguǐ (“make-trouble devil”) – same as #6
          吸血鬼 xīxuguǐ (“suck-blood devil”) – vampire
          鬼佬 guǐlǎo (“devil old-guy”) – foreigner (usually derogatory)
          胆小鬼 dǎnxiǎoguǐ (“small-gut devil”) – coward; chicken
          二鬼子 rguǐzi (“two-ghost-thing”) - a “banana” – someone yellow (Asian) on the outside but white (Caucasian) on the inside (derogatory)*
