** [[spoiler:Actually, the ghosts are created by Vincent Van Gore, the final portrait ghost (if you do them in order). It seems he paints them to life and then everything after that is their own free will. Since even the real Bowser isn't involved in the game, besides being the basis for King Boo's mech-suit-whatever, it's likely Junior isn't either.]]

** Made better by a couple small things: some rooms, while dark, don't have ghosts (such as the Foyer), and [[AntiFrustrationFeatures you can technically make a room safe for yourself by sucking up all the ghosts in it]]. The lights don't come back on, but the ghosts stop spawning. Also, a GenreSavvy player may remember the parlor, anteroom, and wardrobe room that appeared to be [[{{Padding}} a dead end for just a key to an earlier door]] and think to go back there - but this still means that, even if you know where to go, you still have to go from the third floor back down to the first, and then through more ghost-filled rooms from there.

** Some FridgeHorror for you: we ''never'' find out who was talking here. Few of the Portrait Ghosts acknowledge knowing who Luigi is or having seen him before, and none of their personalities appear to match up with the voices speaking here. This is literally the only time in the game this happens, [[ParanoiaFuel and it never gets any sort of explanation]].

* If Luigi sprays ghosts with one of his elemental attacks without vacuuming them up, they fade away to nothing. Slowly. And their animations look like they're ''flailing around in pain'' while it happens. Sometimes they'll even ''whimper in fear'' just before they vanish. [[CessationOfExistence Just what is]] [[RetGone happening to them?]] Perhaps they're [[spoiler:dissolving, as the large majority of them are made of paint]]. [[spoiler:It may seem unlikely, but guess [[OverlordJr who]] [[FridgeHorror used paint]] in his [[SuperMarioSunshine debut?]]]]

[[folder: Luigi's Mansion]]



[[folder: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon]]

* King Boo actually looks rather frightening this time around, especially when he appears behind Luigi from the darkness at one point.
** He also broke out of his painting. On his own. Without the help of Boolosus. Before getting the new crown.
* The final security image. Whoo boy, that picture. Throughout the game, Toads give visual status updates...and gradually, a menacing figure becomes apparent on them. An unearthly glow just off-camera, a shadow whose owner cannot be seen, and so forth. On the final image, the BigBad is not even trying to hide himself, floating in plain view of the image. And when you examine him, ''[[JumpScare HE TURNS TOWARDS THE CAMERA AND CACKLES MANIACALLY.]]'' [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou He's]] ''[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou known]]'' [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou you've been watching him all along.]] [[ParanoiaFuel Because as you soon find out,]] ''[[ParanoiaFuel he's]]'' [[ParanoiaFuel been watching]] ''[[ParanoiaFuel you.]]'' The absolute worst part? This happens on a ''still image that is otherwise devoid of animation''. He is that damn powerful. To top it off, as he laughs, the screen breaks off into static before shutting down, a la Slenderman and every other horrible "caught-on-camera" abomination. Long story short, BringMeMyBrownPants, gents.
* Let's look at his motivations from the last game. He stated he wanted retribution on the Mario Bros. and Gadd for the trouble they caused him and his kin in the past. Working on behalf of his kind; understandable. Here? [[spoiler: He deliberately shattered the Dark Moon to ''break the minds of the ghosts residing there to experiment on and enslave them into an army to conquer the world.'']] [[{{Understatement}} Yikes.]] Combine that with how his eyes seem even more sunken in than before and how he obsessively stalks Luigi towards the game's end? [[SarcasmMode Call it crazy]], but King Boo might be [[{{Understatement}} a tad]] [[AxCrazy unhinged]] after his last humiliation.
* Speaking of paintings, [[spoiler:the look on Mario's face while he's trapped in there is particularly jarring. He's ''visibly terrified!'']] Do you want to know what else, in this game [[spoiler: He can't move or call for help. [[AndIMustScream Being trapped in a painting for all eternity and unable to move is a]] FateWorseThanDeath.]]
* The Rumpus Room in Haunted Towers is VERY creepy, at least compared to the other, less frightening rooms. There's a doll house that [[MindScrew mindscrews you]] if you look into it's window: you see the exact same room you're standing in, with Luigi looking through the same window. Then there's the obligatory creepy doll whose head rotates 360 degrees. To get a gem from it, you have to run around it so ''its head unscrews, landing on the floor with a thud and disappearing.'' [[Series/TheAddamsFamily Marie Antoinette doll wannabe]], anyone? Then there are some [[ScaryJackInTheBox creepy jack-in-the-boxes]] that have evil distorted laughs. And the room is dark at first.
* The boss of the Secret Mine, the Shrewd Possessor, when he possesses the ice itself, thanks to its spooky face, introduction and an EvilLaugh. Probably one of the more intimidating-looking bosses in the game.
* The cutscene right before Luigi enters the Mansion in Mission E2. [[spoiler: Luigi opens the door, but finds only darkness... As he turns around and scratches his head, King Boo appears ''right behind him'', with a horrible, evil smile, but vanishes before Luigi turns around.]] If ''that'' doesn't scare you, ''nothing'' will.
* The cutscene before the final boss fight. Just imagine how frightening that whole scenario was for poor Luigi. Without warning, he's suddenly been transported to an unfamiliar area where it's [[NothingIsScarier pitch black]]. Then, windows begin appearing all around him, and an all-too-familiar laugh starts coming from...well, ''[[MindScrew everywhere.]]'' Then, as Luigi spots [[spoiler:the painting Mario's trapped in]] and starts to reach out for it, King Boo appears [[JumpScare right in his face]]. And the worst part of all? ''[[OhCrap King Boo is pissed.]]'' No wonder Luigi was shaking like a leaf in there.
* The mansions have a lot of items left behind in them, like coats or other articles of clothing, but they're supposed to be abandoned. This suggests that perhaps they were abandoned in quite a hurry...
* In the second mission of the Secret Mine (D-2), Luigi discovers a room full of Boos, along with a Greenie, a Slammer, and a Sneaker trapped inside red crystals that the Boos have put them in. It becomes disturbing when you realize that the Greenie, Slammer, and Sneaker are all ''terrified'' and are banging against the sides of the crystals, voicelessly pleading to be released from their containment.
* The spiders. They cast blood red shadows, and if you look close enough, [[ParanoiaFuel you can find them hiding in corners of darkness.]]
* The coffins. [[spoiler:One forcefully traps you inside and forces you to watch through it's soul piercing eyes.]]
** The Antechamber doesn't help this.
* The final mission of Treacherous Tower, Paranormal Chaos has King Boo [[spoiler: open a portal to the ghosts' homeworld in an attempt to destroy the universe.]] The fact that [[TimedMission you have a limited amount of time to stop this]] is what makes it truly scary.

* King Boo's monologue at the end of the game conveys his utter ''hatred'' towards Luigi. What's worse, he remains completely calm, until he turns to Luigi... or since it's in a temporary Main/FirstPersonPerspective for the entire monologue... turns towards '''''[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou you.]]'''''
