* DarkerAndEdgier: For all its quirkiness and humor, the game is still somewhat darker than most other ''Mario'' titles. It doesn't help that some of the Portrait Ghosts' deaths can be TruthInTelevision.

* DarkerAndEdgier: While it is much lighter than other examples, this is a true horror game by Nintendo's standards. For all of its quirkiness and humor, the game is still somewhat darker than most other ''Mario'' titles. It doesn't help fact remains that some gameplay consists of the Portrait Ghosts' player walking around genuinely dark rooms [[NothingIsScarier waiting for ghosts to sneak up]], and the boss characters' deaths can be TruthInTelevision.

Despite not having a sequel for many years, the game was represented in other games such as ''VideoGame/MarioKart'', ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', or ''VideoGame/NintendoLand'', showing that Nintendo hadn't forgotten the game. Eventually, in 2013, a sequel finally arrived via the Nintendo3DS: ''VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon''. An Arcade spinoff developed by Sega, simply called ''Luigi's Mansion Arcade'' was released in Japan in 2015.

* FanDisservice: One of the Portrait Ghosts is first seen in the shower, and her shadow is a beautiful shapely (and nude) woman. When you pull back the curtain to reveal her, however, she looks like [[CasperTheFriendlyGhost Fatso's]] twin sister.

** The first eight notes of the music that plays when Luigi talks to Toad are the same notes that played when he was talked to in VideoGame/SuperMario64.
** The song that the instruments play in the Conservatory is the {{VideoGame/Super Mario Bros|1}}. theme. Also in the Conservatory, Melody will play either the Athletic theme from VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3, the starting music from VideoGame/MarioBros, or the underwater theme from {{VideoGame/Super Mario Bros|1}}..

* AndIMustScream:
** Reading Sue Pea's description states "What was supposed to be a short nap turned into eternal sleep for the young Sue Pea." This also hits terrifying levels when you realize the AdultFear of something happening to a child after they fall asleep.
** Mario being trapped inside the painting possibly ''for all eternity.'' Of course, you could say the same thing about what happens the Portrait Ghosts, but at least one of them (Madame Clairvoya) doesn't seem to mind that at all, actually ''asking'' Luigi to put her there.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The entire scenario of the first ghosts you defeat in the game. First, you suck up Neville, then his wife Lydia next door. After you've done this, you can hear their baby crying in another room in the same hallway. The whole thing sounds very much like a SerialKiller coming in to slaughter a whole family, ending with the child who's completely oblivious to it. (Neville and Lydia are actually the most docile of the portrait ghosts, keeping entirely to themselves until you disturb them. If you feel guilty, well, Chauncey's a RealityWarper with a NightmareFace and the first boss of the game, which throws a curve ball at you as far as dealing with ghosts go).
* TheDragon: [[ArtInitiatesLife Vincent Van Gore]], technically. He creates all the minor ghosts you encounter in the mansion, is the final regular Portrait Ghost in the game, and is the one keeping the key leading to [[spoiler:[[BigBad King Boo, the FinalBoss]].]]

* GuideDangIt: The game dosen't tell you you have to skip the Boo save after getting the final Boo. This is because E. Gadd calls you right before you collect the gold diamond, making the game think you didn't collect it at all.
