* Music/{{Brentalfloss}} points out that it's weird that Mario is unable to escape the painting, considering that he could go in and out of paintings in ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''. This could simply be explained by assuming that the painting Mario was trapped in works differently from the paintings in ''64'', but even if it ''did'' work the same, there's another explanation. In ''64'', Mario can't exit a painting unless he gets a Star, or he dies. As far as we know, not only are there no Stars in there, but there is nothing that could kill Mario. In other words, [[AndIMustScream he really was trapped]].

* ''[[VideoGame/LuigisMansion Luigi's Mansion]]''. You go around sucking up ghosts for a little old man who turns them into paintings. While some of the ghosts, like Bogmire, are simply monstrous constructs, many of the ghosts are the ghosts of people, as in people who ''died''. Think about that: not only are you trapping the restless souls of the formerly living against their will, you're also ''flattening their very souls into paintings''! In other words, [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation E. Gadd is a madman who uses]] ''[[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation human souls]]'' [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation as decorations for his underground lair]]. To top it all off, one of the ghosts is a ''one-year-old child.''

* Wondering why doesn't King Boo have his Jewel Crown in later games? Because Luigi sold it to buy his new mansion (even though the jewel is worth 1 COIN).
* Luigi doesn't get to the mansion until Mario's been captured. Player 1 lost a life, and now it's Player 2's turn.

*** Correct. Older-style line phones are technically mechanical, not electronic, merely turning line noise into audible noise by passing electric signals through magnets. As long as the line is intact, they require no electricity.

** Similarly many land line phones actually run on a separate circuit system from main power which is why the older ones don't need to be plugged in to a wall outlet just a telephone jack. So generally speaking an older style land line, even up to the 1990's in some places like the continental United States, would still operate in a black out so long as phone lines remained intact.

* So, the portrait ghosts. It was already mentioned by someone else, they are real people being trapped in paintings against there will,you are the one doing it,etc. But have you ever gone to the gallery and noticed how they do not move inside the paintings like how Mario does? They just stand still, forever. So for the ghosts,it is like they are in sleep paralysis nonstop,unable to move or speak. And for anyone who has experienced sleep paralysis, you know how scary that is for just a few seconds or minutes. Now imagine that, but 24/7.

** A lot of older phones didn't actually use electricity - they've been around as recently as the 2000s. I had one in my house growing up. I remember it being the only thing that still functioned during blackouts.

** The same way a lightning bolt hitting the roof of the mansion and not an exposed power source can shut off electricity to the entire mansion and implicitly to E. Gadd's lab as well: [[MST3KMantra it's a video game.]]

** [[spoiler:Vincent Van Gore, the guy who created them. Bowser's involvement is nothing more than being the basis for King Boo's mech/suit in the final battle, and a mention beyond that from Clairvoya. Bowser Jr. isn't even implied to be part of the game.]]



* During the blackout, you can enter the telephone room and receive phone calls from Toad and E. Gadd. How can the phones work without electricity?

Added DiffLines:

** Or Lydia and Neville just had another baby after they died and became ghosts, so that baby also became a ghost. Granted, they don't seem to have much in terms of lower halves, but they might have found a way.
