Regular Ghosts [ edit ]
Gold ghost [ edit ].
Though orange in colour, these ghosts known as Gold Ghosts are the first ghosts Luigi meets in the game, and among the weakest. They have a maximum of 10hp. They attack by sneaking up on Luigi and punching. Sometimes, these ghosts appear with hearts of fire, in which case the fire must be quenched with some Water. These fiery Gold Ghosts are called Temper Terrors.
Purple Puncher [ edit ]
Purple Punchers, as the name suggests, attack Luigi by punching him. Their punches are stronger than those of the Gold Ghosts, causing 10hp damage with each hit. They have 20hp. These ghosts may appear with frozen hearts, and their hearts must be melted before the ghosts can be captured.
Blue Twirler [ edit ]
Blue Twirlers have 30hp, and attack by pounding the ground heavily, causing shockwaves that cause Luigi 10hp damage if they hit him. Some of these ghosts have hearts doused in water, and must be frozen to become vulnerable. These watery Blue Twirlers are called Blue Blazes.
Garbage Can Ghost [ edit ]
Garbage Can Ghosts do not attack Luigi directly. Instead, they appear, eat a banana, and throw the skin on the ground, disappearing soon after. This makes it more difficult to catch them, since Luigi must avoid the banana skins while trying to catch them. They have the highest HP of any regular ghost, with 40hp.
Grabbing Ghost [ edit ]
Ceiling Surprise [ edit ]
Ceiling Surprises hang from the ceiling, trying to scare Luigi. They have 0 HP, and so are defeated instantly if Luigi turns the Poltergust on them. A sub-species called Purple Bombers act similarly, but can attack by dropping bombs on Luigi. If either version of this ghost is sucked up by Luigi, it will then drop a free heart. Both are usually found together in corridors, although they have been known to pop up in areas like the Courtyard and Sealed Room .
Shy-Guy [ edit ]
Shy-Guys are ghosts whose main feature are the masks that shield their hearts from Luigi's flashlight. If Luigi wishes to catch a Shy-Guy ghost, he must first remove their masks to reveal their 20hp hearts. Shy-Guys often appear in pairs. They will only attack if their masks are removed or if their partner is sucked up, and attack by trying to pierce Luigi with a spear.
Speedy Spirit [ edit ]
Speedy Spirits are similar to Gold Ghosts, in that they have the same amount of health, and similar appearance, but with a light blue colour rather than orange. They do not attack Luigi, but instead fly away from him at a rapid speed. They only appear in fifteen locations throughout the game, and are therefore very valuable, but you only have one chance to catch it if you find one. They give out large amounts of cash when caught. If you miss one, you may get another chance to catch it during the blackout, but this isn't guaranteed to happen.
The Boos [ edit ]
A total of fifty Boos appear throughout the game, after they have been released from the Storage Room . They have varying amounts of HP, and only appear in rooms after the lights have been turned on. 35 Boos appear in rooms throughout the Mansion, and the remaining 15 form the Boss of Area 3, Boolossus . Luigi must catch 40 Boos (45 in the PAL Hidden Mansion) before he can face the final boss .
Skeleton Ghost [ edit ]
Skeleton Ghosts have 30hp. They attack Luigi by throwing bones at him. After throwing a bone at him, they will collapse, drift away to another location, and reform themselves. During the rebuilding process, they become vulnerable to Luigi's flashlight.
Minor ghosts [ edit ]
- Mice and Bats: These appear mainly in corridors. They do not attack, and only cause damage if Luigi walks into them.
- Gold Mice: Similarly to Speedy Spirits, these reward Luigi with cash if caught. They appear if Luigi scans wedges of cheese in certain rooms.
- Bowler Ghosts: These often appear in corridors alongside Ceiling Surprises. They attack by throwing a bowling ball at Luigi.
- Waiters: Two of these appear in the Dining Room . They have 10hp, and their only purpose in the afterlife is to replenish Mr. Luggs' meal.
- Flying Fish: These ghosts are small and come in many colors. They don't have health, but they fly around Luigi and try to hit him. They tend to hang out in areas or rooms with water.
- Spark: Spiky, explosive ghosts that appear in awkward locations in corridors. They explode if touched, causing 10hp damage. Can be quenched with Water, although they regenerate quickly.

How to capture Rare Ghosts in Luigi's Mansion 3
If you're nearing the end of the story in Luigi's Mansion 3, you might have noticed that your gallery is sparse in one particular area: the Rare Ghosts section. You might be poking into every corner of the hotel, looking for these mysterious Rare Ghosts you somehow haven't come across yet, to no avail. That's because there's a very specific way to find these Rare Ghosts, and if you're not playing the multiplayer modes, you're doing it wrong.
Products used in this guide
- Ghost bustin': Luigi's Mansion 3 ($60 at Amazon)
How to find Rare Ghosts in Luigi's Mansion 3
- When you load up the game, instead of choosing Story, select the Scarescraper game mode.
- You can play with friends locally or online, but if you're flying solo, select Online play and choose to play with random players.
- Select 10 Floors.
- Capture ghosts and complete objectives with three other players until you get to the 5th floor .
- There, you'll be able to battle several Rare Ghosts .
- If you want the ghost for your collection, you must be the one to ultimately capture it .
What Rare Ghosts can I capture?
There are nine total Rare Ghosts, all of which are variations on ghosts you have seen in the Story Mode, but with special abilities and more health:
- Speed Goob: 250 HP, moves very fast
- Speed Hammer: 350 HP, moves very fast
- Speed Oozer: 250 HP, moves very fast
- Regen Goob: 250 HP, regenerates HP when not engaged
- Regen Hammer: 350 HP, regenerates HP when not engaged

No. Rare Ghosts can only be found on the fifth floor of the Scarescraper and are not available anywhere else in the game.
What do I get for capturing all the Rare Ghosts?
There, unfortunately, is no special reward for capturing all the Rare Ghosts except the joy of having your Gallery completed. There is an in-game achievement for capturing a total of 40 Rare Ghosts, but it doesn't give you any special rewards like collecting all the gems will.
But if you're trying your best to finish your entire ghost collection, you'll need to be the one to suck up all nine Rare Ghosts, which likely means you'll be making multiple trips to the Scarescraper. Good luck, Luigi!
Our top equipment picks
All you need to sink into the frights of Luigi's Mansion 3:
We ain't afraid of no ghosts
Luigi has once again gotten himself into a pickle when an invitation to a resort hotel turns out to be extremely haunted. With Mario, Peach, and the Toads captured and trapped in paintings, Luigi must navigate the 17 floors of The Last Resort with his trusty Poltergust, sucking up ghosts, and putting a stop to the designs of King Boo and Hellen Gravely for good.
If you want the best experience in Luigi's Mansion 3, consider these additional items:
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller ($63 at Amazon)
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is easily one of the best controllers for the Nintendo Switch and is recommended in most cases over trying to maneuver the tiny Joy-Cons. Its look and feel are more akin to standard controllers for other systems, but it still has the motion controls and haptic feedback you want from the smaller, built-in controllers. This should be your first purchase after getting a Nintendo Switch, every time.
ButterFox Carrying Case ($11 at Amazon)
Keep your adventures in The Last Resort safe with an inexpensive traveling case for the Nintendo Switch. It can hold 19 games, the Switch itself, and multiple cables and Joy-Con controllers.
Nintendo Switch Lite ($200 at Amazon)
If you're obsessed with gaming on the go, consider the Nintendo Switch Lite as an alternative or addition to the regular Nintendo Switch. It's smaller, cheaper, more durable if you have kids playing the system, and comes in fun colors like yellow and turquoise. It can't dock on a TV, but if you're primarily a handheld gamer, this may be the best option for you.

Luigi's Mansion 3: How To Catch Rare Ghosts
Luigi's Mansion 3 features several rare ghosts that require extra care from players to catch. Here's how to collect them all.
The most satisfying part of playing Luigi's Mansion 3 is capturing the ghosts that Luigi encounters along the way. In the main mode of the game, players will discover boss ghosts that fit the theme of the area they are in. But they will also encounter a rotation of average ghosts as well.
RELATED: Pro Tips For Luigi’s Mansion 3 You Should Know
But while catching these normal ghosts can be fun on their own, one thing most players miss out on is attempting to capture rare ghosts. These variations of the normal enemies appear in Luigi's Mansion 3 's ScareScraper mode and have an extra layer of difficulty when it comes to fighting them.
3 What Is ScareScraper?
ScareScraper is a multiplayer mode for Luigi's Mansion that was first introduced to the series in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon . It can be accessed from the game's main menu. The goal of the game is to conquer a specific task that is presented to the players on a floor. Before each game, players can choose how many floors they want to conquer.
Objectives range from capturing ghosts to rescuing Toads. While playing, players should keep an eye out for any upgrades to their weapons and abilities, including a suction upgrade and dark-light glasses that help players see invisible ghosts or items.
Be wary while playing, though as there are a ton of potential hidden traps that could put a stop to potential progress. Most of these include fake-outs, like fake doors and chests. Other times, there will be a blackout or each player's Poltergust will be teleported to a different area of the room and they must retrieve it.
2 Where Are The Rare Ghosts?
Among the many tasks, the players could face a mission called "Capture The Ghosts (Rare)." This task will only be available if players choose to play on ten floors or higher. The first thing players must do is work together to find a key.
RELATED: Luigi's Mansion 3 - Where to Find Gems in The Basement (B1)
This will unlock a door that will eventually release the ghosts. Essentially, players will have to get themselves and their Gooigis all on top of the circle panel in the middle of the room. This will unlock the rare ghosts and they will begin to come out in droves. Players must capture all the rare ghosts before time runs out.
1 Who Are The Rare Ghosts?
As noted earlier, these rare ghosts are replicas of the other ghosts players are used to fighting in the normal version of the game . However, these ghosts each have a specific ability that makes them tougher to catch. The abilities range from being more powerful to generating health while not being attacked. The list of rare ghosts include:
- Speed Hammer
- Speed Oozer
- Bomb Hammer
- Regen Hammer
- Regen Slinker
- Lethal Goob
- Lethal Hammer
- Lethal Oozer
- Lethal Slinker
- Thieving Slinker
- Electric Oozer
- Diffusing Goob
- Diffusing Hammer
- Warp Slinker
There are also DLC packs for Luigi's Mansion 3 that add a good handful of rare ghosts to the collection. That includes:
- Disco Hammer
- Swabbie Goob
- Goob the Magnificent
- Hammersaurus Rex
Luigi's Mansion 3 was released on October 31, 2019, and is available on Nintendo Switch.

The Grabbing Ghosts are a type of ghost that Luigi encounters in Luigi's Mansion .
They move at a slow speed towards Luigi and will attack by grabbing hold of Luigi from behind and squeezing him, which prevents movement. The player has to shake the Control Stick to throw off a Grabbing Ghost. They are also vulnerable to any element. There are four variants of Grabbing Ghosts.
- 1 White/Lavender
- 3.1 Turquoise
- 5 Abilities
White/Lavender [ ]
Abilities [ ]
Scare: Just like most other ghosts, the White Grabbing Ghosts can scare Luigi upon appearing, briefly interrupting his movements.
Invisibility: White Grabbing Ghosts can become invisible when not attacking.
Grab: The White Grabbing Ghost can grab Luigi and hold him.
The weakest and first variant to be encountered, in the 1F Bathroom . They have 10 HP and don't harm Luigi when holding him, but will continue to hold on as long as the player doesn't shake the Control Stick.
Scare: Just like most other ghosts, the Red Grabbing Ghosts can scare Luigi upon appearing, briefly interrupting his movements.
Invisibility: Red Grabbing Ghosts can become invisible when not attacking.
Grab: The Red Grabbing Ghost can grab Luigi and hold him, dealing 5-13 damage over time.
The most common variant to encounter, with the first time being in the Storage Room . They have 20 HP and will deal 5-13 damage to Luigi while grabbing, letting go if he takes the maximum amount of damage. Three of them (six in the 3DS Hidden Mansion) are fought as the fourth wave of ghosts Vincent Van Gore sends at Luigi.
Turquoise [ ]
Scare: Just like most other ghosts, the Turquoise Grabbing Ghosts can scare Luigi upon appearing, briefly interrupting his movements.
Invisibility: Turquoise Grabbing Ghosts can become invisible when not attacking.
Grab: The Turquoise Grabbing Ghost can grab Luigi and hold him, dealing 5-13 damage over time.
Also known as Mirror Ghosts , this turquoise variant is only encountered in the Mirror Room , and also in the Wardrobe Room in the Hidden Mansion . They have exactly the same behavior than the red variant, but can only be seen in the reflection of a mirror. Another hint to their location is a small puff of dust on the ground that appears when they materialize.
Scare: Just like most other ghosts, the Purple Grabbing Ghosts can scare Luigi upon appearing, briefly interrupting his movements.
Invisibility: Purple Grabbing Ghosts can become invisible when not attacking.
Grab: The Purple Grabbing Ghost can grab Luigi and hold him.
Also known as Cinema Ghosts , this purple variant is only encountered in the Projection Room . They have exactly the same behavior than the red and turquoise variants, but can only be seen in the movie screen thanks to their silhouette. Another hint to their location is a small puff of dust on the ground that appears when they materialize.
- Their design have been slightly changed in the 3DS remake , with them now having a full row of teeth. The weakest variant is also now white rather than light lavender.

So how the heck do I catch a SPECIFIC rare ghost I’ve spent 24 hours or more trying to catch a certain kind but with the dlc I’m back to square one say, a speed goob for example how do I make sure that that specific ghost spawns in instead of other ghost?

Luigi's Mansion Theory: The Portrait Ghosts Are Poison Victims
A recent fan theory could potentially uncover something dark in the original Luigi's Mansion -- but does it hold up?
Three games in, Luigi's Mansion is an action-adventure series with mystery and light horror elements, making it a paradigm example of the Nintendo Treatment . Although the games aren't particularly dark, the series has possessed some fans of a particularly dark theory concerning the mansion's Portrait Ghosts.
In Luigi's Mansion , players control the titular character, who has won a mansion in a contest he didn't enter. After promising to meet up with Mario there, but not seeing his brother anywhere, Luigi ventures into the spooky, old house and attempts to track Mario down. He encounters several ghosts along the way and fights them using a special ghost-hunting vacuum designed by scientist Professor E. Gadd.
Related: Luigi's Mansion 3 Is All Kinds of Sweet, Not Scary
One fan theory suggests there is a behind the scenes plot that is often overlooked for the main story. It involves the spooky portraits of people who have long been dead -- Portrait Ghosts -- and the ghost of the mansion's butler, Shivers. The theory posits a classic mystery trope, with a twist: The butler did it.
In Luigi's Mansion , there are a total of 23 Portrait Ghosts, each with the appearance of an undead person wearing the clothes they wore at their time of death.
Professor E. Gadd says the spirits of the portraits where released from their paintings by Boolossus under the command of King Boo. These include Shivers, who wanders the mansion in search of the master's will, hoping he was in it. Shivers is also smitten with Melody Pianissima, but she does not seem to return the feeling.
Related: Tales of Monkey Island Is Back - Here's What You Should Know
The Reddit theory, posted by username CrustCrusty, suggests that Shivers poisoned the members of the mansion's family in order to be the sole inheritor of the master's will before dying of old age at 72. As the mansion's butler, one of the responsibilities Shivers had was serving or cooking food.
Interestingly enough, Portrait Ghosts drop a Poison Mushroom item with a bite mark -- and they are the only ghosts who do. There is an unused animation for the game in which Luigi touches a Poison Mushroom and coughs, taking on the same ghastly appearance as the Portrait Ghosts.
Plus, the classic Mario mushroom is based off of a real-life poisonous mushroom -- the Amanita Muscaria -- which can cause hallucinations, drowsiness and loss of equilibrium when ingested. In some cases, people have died.
Many of the Portrait Ghosts reveal what they were doing just before they died. For example, Neville yawns while reading in a night robe. Sue Pea's bio suggests she took a nap and died in her sleep. These symptoms of the ghosts further support the idea that the residents were poisoned.
Related: PS5 Theory: Spider-Man Miles Morales Brings the Spider-Verse to PlayStation
However, this Luigi's Mansion theory also posits that Shivers poisoned himself -- which doesn't fit with how he sets himself on fire with his candelabra before his death, unless he did so due to loss of equilibrium. It's hard to imagine that the 72 year-old butler suddenly forgot how to handle a candelabra. This makes sense, as realistically, poison affects individuals differently based on things like age, size, health and exposure.
It's also possible he did not poison himself and the mushroom he drops is someone else's. After all, the item can be found by other means throughout the game, like from opening drawers.
In addition to possibly poisoning himself, the theory also suggests Shivers poisoned Melody Pianissima, the subject of his unrequited affections. Perhaps he killed her for turning him down, but that seems unlikely given how smitten he still is in the afterlife.
These holes are not explained in CrustCrusty's Reddit theory, but it does have some merit. Shivers has the motive to poison the others in Luigi's Mansion , since he seems to be the only Portrait Ghost interested in finding the will. Plus, as the butler, he had the means to do so.

Luigi's Ghost Mansion
Luigi's Ghost Mansion is a competitive attraction minigame in Nintendo Land . It is loosely based on Luigi's Mansion .

Gameplay [ edit ]
The game involves up to four players, wearing costumes of Luigi , Mario , Waluigi , and Wario , respectively (as dressed in player order), each armed with a flashlight , aiming to evade the Gold Ghost and use their flashlights to defeat it. The single player controls the Gold Ghost and must try to make the other players faint. If the Gold Ghost is near, a vibration is felt through the Wii Remote . Lightning also appears on occasion, making the Gold Ghost briefly visible.
When there is less than four players on the human side, then some Monitas join in to fill in the remaining spots and support them. They only follow specific routes on the map and turn off their flashlight if a player-controlled human approaches. They cannot be defeated by the ghost player and they can damage the ghost just like a human player. When there is only one human versus a ghost, the human player has three lives. If two humans are against the ghost, they have two lives each.
Occasionally, batteries spawn onto the map for players that have run low on batteries. The human players' batteries eventually run out as they continue to search for the ghost. Rarely, a larger, more powerful battery spawns on the stage that upgrades the flashlight the player is carrying to the Super Light. This flashlight is gold in color and has a star-shaped top. It has the ability to revive fallen players faster and deals damage to the ghost at a much faster pace.
If the Mii dressed as the ghost wins against the Miis dressed as the humans, the message "Good night!" (the Game Over message in the Luigi's Mansion series) appears before fading to the results.
Stages [ edit ]
There are different layouts of the game depending on how many players there are. There is the Main Floor which is the starting stage of the minigame. It is a large basic mansion with many walls and awkwardly designed corridors. The Basement is unlocked second after a game has been completed on Main Floor. It is very similar to the Main Floor but the walls are replaced with large crates and it is more open for players to move freely without limits. The Research Lab is the third stage, and is set in a laboratory that has multiple conveyor belts that move in specific directions. The Storage Room is the fourth stage and features knights in armor that shake around when human players approach. The fifth stage is Monita's Rooftop. It features almost no areas for the ghost to hide in and Monitas patrolling the stage.
Professor E. Gadd is heavily implied to be the one describing the different courses in Luigi's Ghost Mansion, as they match his manner of speaking.

- One song for the Jukebox:
- Battery : This is a flashlight battery--the type that just pops into existence when you need it the most. It's a strange yet convenient phenomenon, but I do wish they'd stop appearing so far away.
- Flashlight : This special flashlight is specifically designed for ghost trackers. These things hardly last more than a few minutes, though. Shoddy product design, if you ask me.
- Ghost Statue : In Luigi's Ghost Mansion, you can zap ghosts with light to drain them of their supernatural energy. That's just the magic of Nintendo Land. Obviously, real ghosts would laugh at such a pathetic attack.
- Robotic Arm : The lab appears to be long abandoned, but these arms are still hard at work assembling something. Running for so long without malfunctioning is quite a feat. I wonder who designed them?
- Suit of Armor : A poltergeist decided to settle down in this ancient set of armor. They say when the park is closed, it saunters listlessly through the halls...
- Super Light : When you're in trouble, this high-powered battery will turn up to help you zap apparitions with ease. But why can't they appear before you're in a pinch?

Trivia [ edit ].
- According to an Iwata Asks interview, Luigi's Ghost Mansion helped adjust a mechanic used in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon 's multiplayer mode, the ScareScraper . Originally, the developers wanted a fallen Luigi to stay dead and could not be revived. After playing Luigi's Ghost Mansion, they changed it so other players could revive a fallen Luigi.

Enemies found in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon range from your average ghosts, to very unique ghosts, and even critters that can harass Luigi if he isn't careful.
The mice, spiders, bats and crows that roam throughout the areas can all cause slight damage to Luigi. While you can vacuum them in to get them out of the way, it's better to flash them with the flashlight. Mice and spiders will net you a coin, flying critters will cough up a Bill. There is also a harmless critter that can be found in the Chalet of the Secret Mine . These fuzzy guys won't hurt Luigi, but they will crowd him, usually getting in the way. They can be shot out of the Poltergust and stunned for a short while.
Golden versions of all critters exist as well. They are usually hard to find, either lurking behind furniture, or darting across a room rapidly. Once spotted, they won't be around for long, so use the Stroboscope to get a good amount of money. Gold versions of the fuzzy harmless critters can also be found, and shooting them out of the Poltergust repeatedly will net Luigi some cash.
Often found near Boos , and certainly where invisible items are found. While Orbs won't attack or charge like ghosts and critters, bumping into them will cause minor damage. Just vacuum them up and they will vanish.
Just like the first game, you'll be having to catch a variety of different ghosts.
Much like the first Luigi's Mansion, it's possible to get cash by vacuuming the ghosts up. Depending on the level of the Poltergust's suction power you can get several values of coins.
- Lv 1: 3 Coins
- Lv 2: 1 Gold Bar
- Lv 3: 3 Gold Bars
Getting multiple ghosts at once will give you a bonus as well. It appears to be an extra gold bar per ghost caught appearing with whatever treasure you earned by boosting the Poltergust. So assuming you get a level 3 Boost and catch two ghosts, that's 4 gold bars per ghost.
They're the mildest of creeps you'll encounter, but don't go easy on them. They'll cause a problem if you don't exterminate 'em quick. Greenies have 10 HP.
Greenies are pretty simple on their own, but they can vary greatly in the tricks they use to fight Luigi. Here are the different kinds of Greenies you can expect to face.
- Glasses Greenie - Using sunglasses or similar headwear, they will be immune to the Stroboscope. Grab the glasses from them with the Poltergust to disarm them.
- Helmet Greenie - Wearing a helmet or bucket over their head, they will be immune to the Stroboscope and the helmet cannot be taken off. Wait for them to get confused, and they will peek out to look around, leaving them vulnerable to the Stroboscope.
- Spade Greenie - Using a shovel or similar type weapon, they will hide behind the spade blocking the Stroboscope. Wait for them to divebomb, and use the Stroboscope immediatley afterwards.
- Weapon and Shield Greenie - Using makeshift weapons and shields, these Greenies will block stroboscope flashes, and cannot be disarmed. Either wait for the moment before they lunge or after they have spun around to flash them.
- Rock Greenie - Similar to the Glasses Greenie, they will carry a heavy object to smash Luigi with. Disarm them with the Poltergust.
- Mummy - A Greenie in disguise, flashing them will cause them to charge blindly in the direction of the flash. Aim them in the direction of a wall or eachother to cause them to collapse, then Use the poltergust on a bit of wrapping to unravel them. They can also be lured into fire to destroy the disguise.
- Suit of Armor - Another Greenie in disguise, and only found in one area of the game, wait for the suits of armor to charge and lure them to a carpet. Dodge their attacks and suck up the carpet to trip them up, exposing the Greenie.
A stronger version of the greenie ghost, it has 50 HP.
[[File:|Image result for strong greenie]]
Rare, gold colored Greenie. It's faster than the standard variety and has 20 HP. Capturing it will cause a spew of money to appear. With a fully upgraded poltergust it's possible to get 150G from one. Usually appears in the same spot in each mission, making it an excellent way to upgrade the Poltergust quickly.
These strong ghouls can cause very powerful energy waves just with a clap of their hands. Slammers have 30 hp.
A stronger version of the Slammer, it has 150 hp.
These cowardly creeps hide behind furniture and pelt you with objects when you walk by them. Hiders have 15 hp.
A stronger version of the hider ghost, it has 75 hp.
A purple ghost that creates puddles of goo that it will hide in. Luigi will be swallowed by the Creeper if he stands over one of their puddles. Aim the Poltergust at the puddles to cause them to solidify, then flash them as Luigi would a normal ghost. Creepers have unlimited HP, so Luigi will have to charge the Poltergust and press A to capture them.
Creepers can also split into mini forms, though they can be sucked up without a fight.
These stealthy ghosts will seldom expose themselves, usually right as they are about to pounce from behind on poor unsuspecting Luigi. In a group of ghosts they can quickly ruin the fun, causing Luigi to let go of the other ghosts he was wrangling. Look for signs of their movement in the enviroment (water trails, wobbling furniture) and flash them before they get close, or cast the Dark-Light Device on them. They have 25 HP.
A powered up version of the Sneaker, these ghosts have more HP and can do more damage if they aren't exposed by Luigi. They have 100 HP.
That big brain of his let's him wreak havoc by manipulating objects with his mind.
A very old and very strong version of the Poltergeist, this blue colored ghost possesses something Luigi needs. Much like the regular Poltergeist, he will throw objects at you, even while being wrangled. He will also toss bombs at you when he hides. He has 100 HP.
A more powerful version of the Poltergeist that behaves similar to the Ancient Poltergeist, he has 200 HP.
The Brain *Scarescraper Mode*
A stronger version of the Poltergeist that appears in the scarescraper as a boss level ghost. He has 300 HP.
These ginormous ghoulies throw gross globs of goo at you every chance chance they get. Gobbers have 100 hp. You can usually avoid the goo simply by strafing while sucking them up.
A stronger version of the gobber. it has 200 hp.
Polterpup *enEmies in scarescraper mode*
These playful pups has a strange appetite. They tend to eat objects that you need, running off with them at exactly the wrong moment. In the single player game a polterpup will revive you if you have a golden bone when you are KOed. In Scarescraper mode you can track them with the darklight to find where they are hiding. The normal has 50HP. The huge has 100HP.
If you thought Boos were bad in the Mushroom Kingdom, they're going to be your worst nightmare here in the Evershade Valley. They're returning with more tricks up their proverbial sleeves than ever before. Boos have varying HP, often around 25 or 30 in the first two mansions. If you take too long vaccuming them up, they'll start tossing out Spirit Orbs to trip you up and hide things. Find them with the darklight and hit them with suction. When you charge up the Poltergust, you'll send the boo ricocheting off of the walls and dropping coins on each hit.
This will be his second appearance in the Luigi's Mansion series, as he starred as the main antagonist in the last installment. He will resume that role in this one too, as he is the orchestrator of the whole Dark Moon debacle in the first place (Which E. Gadd can’t seem to figure out until E-3 even though we've SEEN him twice on our adventure.)
