* HurricaneOfPuns: Most of the Boos' names. There are a total of ''[[http://www.mariowiki.com/List_of_Boos_in_Luigi%27s_Mansion thirty-six]]'' Boo puns, each cheesier than the last. One is even named [[spoiler:Booigi]]! (There's actually a practical reason for this: It helps you keep track of them). You need to catch 5 of them when they first appear in Area 2 to continue with that stage of the game in the downstairs Washroom, 20 to fight Boolossus (who adds the 15 Boos that make him up to the counter when you defeat him), and 40 to fight the Final Boss, [[spoiler: King Boo,]] and [[spoiler:catching ''all 50'' of them gains you one of the two Golden Diamonds, the most valuable treasure in the game.]])

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Biff Atlas is, of course, [[TheAhnold Arnold Schwarzenegger]] in appearance, vocal mannerisms, and strength (he's one of three ghosts that can take off a fifth of your health if he punches you; the other two are Sir Weston and his icicles and the final boss's body).

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: This was one of the first games to depict Luigi as being phobic, and his fear has since [[DivergentCharacterEvolution become his most distinguishing trait]]. This was first touched upon in VideoGame/PaperMario if you read Luigi's diary after Toad Town has been visited by ghosts. Luigi ''really'' does not like ghosts.

Added DiffLines:

* TheDoorSlamsYou: This is what you get if you open one of the trap doors in the house, open the fridge in the kitchen by hand, or open the Toad shed in the courtyard on the wrong side. For the trap doors, they swing wide open and squish Luigi against the wall (the trap/fake doors reveal only a wall behind them), then they close, a Paper Luigi falls to the floor, and a ghost laughs.

Despite not having had 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.

* LostForever: The two Gold Diamonds, the most valuable items in the game, can be missed under the wrong circumstances:
** The next-to-last room of Area 2, the Boneyard, has a plant you can water once you bag the resident skeleton and Spooky, the guard dog. You need to water it before you enter the Graveyard beyond this point, since you become unable to leave the Graveyard and it has the boss of Area 2. Afterwards, you must water it at some point in Area 3 before its boss, and watering it in the last area rewards you with first Gold Diamond in the mansion. Miss a watering, and you can't get the diamond.
** The second Gold Diamond is earned after capturing all Boss except King Boo [[spoiler:(as he's the FinalBoss and only has a much less valuable treasure)]]. Although you're given the option to save your progress every time a Boo is captured, the Diamond can only be collected after you finish talking with E. Gadd and save. If you get the Diamond but forget to save ''again'' afterwards (either by talking to a Toad or by defeating [[spoiler:King Boo]] and finishing the game), it will be lost permanently since you'll have already captured the last Boo and won't have a chance to claim back the prize.

* BossRoom: Four rooms in the mansion (the Nursery, the Graveyard, the third floor Balcony, and the Secret Altar, in that order) have a boss ghost residing in them to close out the Area where you enter these rooms. The bosses of the first two rooms have small puzzles that you need to solve to be able to fight them, but you can walk up to the other two bosses (though they are behind Boo checkpoints that require a certain amount of caught Boos; you need 40 out of 50 to reach the final boss). These bosses also take you to a special arena when you encounter them.

These bosses also take you to a special arena when you encounter them.

Added DiffLines:

* CowardlyMooks: If Luigi finds a Boo in the furniture, they will attempt to flee to the nearest room. Justified as they are afraid of the Poltergust, which is their weakness.
