Ghosts (オバケ, Obake) are a group of enemies from Luigi's Mansion, a game in the Mario universe.


Various types of ghosts appear in Luigi's Mansion as enemies encountered by Luigi in his quest to rescue Mario from King Boo, which can be defeated using the Poltergust 3000. The three types of ghosts depicted in Smash Bros., the Blue Twirler, Purple Puncher, and Gold Ghost, are common species found throughout the mansion. Boos also appear in the mansion, but are treated as a separate class of ghostly enemy.

In Luigi's Mansion, the ghosts are created by ghost painter Vincent Van Gore after the main antagonist, King Boo frees him from his portrait, along with other portrait ghosts. They appear frequently in darkened rooms and never appear in the direction Luigi is looking. They can be defeated by stunning them with the flashlight, exposing their heat, which allows them to be sucked up into the Poltergust 3000.

Different but stylistically similar ghost enemies appear in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Three ghosts from Luigi's Mansion comprise a single trophy under the name "Ghosts". The ghosts depicted are a Blue Twirler, Purple Puncher, and a Gold Ghost.

Ghost variations that appeared throughout Luigi's Mansion. They don't have the spectral power required to manifest any truly unusual ghostly phenomena, so they rely on such pedestrian physical methods as punching Luigi to frighten him. There are also some rare varieties that are very rich and drop a lot of coins.

Item in Smash Tour.

In Smash Tour, Ghosts (Luigi's Mansion) is a blue item. A player who uses it will be able to walk through stationary opponents on the map without triggering battles for one turn.


The trophy depicts the same three ghosts as in Brawl, all in the exact same pose.

These mischievous ghosts haunt an old, old mansion. Suck them all up with your Poltergust 3000, but watch out for their attacks while you do! The gold ones' short punches might not be too hard to dodge, but the pink ones have much greater reach. The blue ones will smack the floor to hit you with shock waves!
