* Why does King Boo seem to think that he's won just by intercepting the Pixelator stream and dragging Luigi back into his dimension? Even if Luigi loses the fight, doesn't King Boo realize that the final Dark Moon piece still made it back to the Bunker, and that E. Gadd could just combine it with the others to restore the ghosts to their normal temperaments? (And stemming from that, why doesn't E. Gadd actually do just that until after Luigi defeats King Boo?)

** There's a number of claims that King Boo has been controlling the ghosts. This likely applies to the Boos themselves. So once the threat of King Boo's presence (and more specifically, that crown) was gone, Gadd felt it was safe enough to let the Boos go.

** Its also because the Boos are foreign to the setting of the game.

** Boo's for the most part are lazy hovering jerks who'd rather hang around and scare people most of the time rather then cause any real trouble. King Boo just happens to be a psychotic lunatic among them who either convinces or scares them into obedience. Really everything they do can be explained by either room for personal gain, satisfying a grudge, or fear/loyalty regarding King Boo.

** Or the Boos could have released him. Since E. Gadd sold the painting at a garage sale there would have been no one to stop them from letting him out, and we already know the Boos captured in the original game aren't the only ones under his command.

** Don't forget the Polterpup can escape from Gadd's vault as it please as we've seen in the main story. It only stays at the end because it wants too. It's likely it's just hanging around just out of sight looking for a playmate and possibly tracking Luigi when he finds the bone. And then when Luigi gets knocked out, it's got a perfect chance to snatch the bone without the risk of getting captured. And still being a Ghost Dog thanks him which bring him back (it's still a dog, afterall). Also, that's why the Pup doesn't show up when Luigi doesn't have the bone, it can't/won't find him.

* This may not be a good question, but it just bug me. Why did the ghost have pupils? Sure, they lost them when the Dark Moon broke, but in the original LuigisMansion, none of the ghosts had pupils either, and the Dark Moon was never mentioned.

* Why, in the end cutscene, does Gadd have a button to release the boos? I mean, why in the name of Hylia (yes I realize wrong series)does he think that it would be a good idea to release the boos that have caused so much trouble for him and luigi?

** Because Gad put them there. They activate with ''his'' strobe-technology, and they even have "Gad" in their name. E Gad put those teleporters up himself in the mansions to facilitate getting around before the Dark Moon shattered.

** What if something important got stuck in there? Or what if they needed the help of the Boos to fight a bigger threat? Or what if they wanted to make another sequel?

** In the first game, the ghosts you fought were all ''fake.'' Apart from the Boos and the Portrait Ghosts, they were all paintings brought to life by the ''real'' ghost who created them. All of the ghosts in ''this'' game are real, and the presence or absence of pupils functions as a visual cue as to whether or not they are being affected by the Dark Moon. Granted, it was never made clear exactly ''what'' the Dark Moon does to the ghosts, and it doesn't explain why the Portrait Ghosts didn't have pupils ''either,'' or why in that game ghosts retained the form and identity of their living selves while in this one dying causes you to turn into one of several types of ghost, but the point is that the mooks in the first game were all fakes, and the mooks in this game weren't, and that's what's important.

** My guess is the Dark Moon gave them pupils. In the first game, the Dark Moon wasn't there, so they didn't have pupils.
