Ultimate's move list

The Poltergust 5000 (オバキューム, Ghost Vacuum), also known as Poltergust G-00, is Luigi's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. 4 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, replacing Negative Zone from Brawl.

Overview[edit]

Poltergust 5000[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. 4, when preforming this move, Luigi starts by trying to trap opponents and items close to him inside the vacuum. Upon activation, Luigi will automatically sweep the vacuum's suction around him radially--a couple sweeps in front, once behind, then a few more in front--remaining in place for the move's duration, even when used in the air. If any opponents are caught in the initial pass, they receive up to 30% damage before Luigi shoots them out upward diagonally, causing an additional 10% damage and tremendous knockback. Opponents caught will receive the same amount of damage regardless of the time they were sucked in (their percentages increases faster to compensate). Some types of items can be shot out at the end of the move, further damaging opponents as they travel and it is possible to pick them up afterward. Foes sent flying will potentially collide with each other (excluding Team Battles), also causing even more damage. If no opponents or eligible items are caught, the Final Smash will fail. It can't suck in opponents behind solid walls. If used in midair, Luigi will bounce upwards once the move ends to aid recovery.

The items Luigi can shoot out include the Steel Diver, Fire Flower, Gust Bellows, Ray Gun, Super Scope, Beam Sword, Drill, Fire Bar, Star Rod, Ore Club, and Home-Run Bat.

Poltergust G-00[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it is renamed as it now uses the design of the Poltergust with the same name from Luigi's Mansion 3. The Poltergust is further applied to his existing movement as it gives him a new tether grab, but in the Final Smash, it remains functionally identical.

Origin[edit]

The Poltergust 5000 in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

The Poltergust 5000 debuted in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, where it was an upgrade of the Poltergust 3000 that was used in Luigi's Mansion for the Nintendo GameCube. It was found by Luigi in the Gloomy Manor inside a car. Luigi also needed to find the Strobulb and the Dark-Light to help him on his quest. Poltergust 5000 is Luigi's weapon for the entire game, constantly gaining upgrades as Luigi collects money throughout the game.

The Poltergust G-00 will formally debut in Luigi's Mansion 3.

In this game, it sucks in enemies, damages them, and then fires them diagonally upward. If it's used in an area with no ceilings, you might send them soaring right off the screen!

ntsc Luigi's trusty tool, the Poltergust 3000. This isn't your neighbor's boring, old vacuum—the Poltergust 3000 sucks up ghosts! It also can find them when they are hiding and can blow them around a room! Why doesn't every family own one of these, I wonder...

pal Unlike your run-of-the-mill vacuum cleaner, this one sucks up...ghosts! And it doesn't just suck them up - it blows them around, draws them to you, and even helps you find them when they're hidden. Talk about convenient! No home should be without one. No Luigi should be without one, either.

Trivia[edit]

  • Poltergust 5000 is one of the few moves in Smash 4 which allow careening fighters to damage other fighters, despite this property being removed from general gameplay since Brawl.
