* CultClassic: Has something of a reputation as such, considering that while it received flack at first for not being a true Mario sequel, it grew a fanbase and has been referenced frequently in later Mario games.



* EnsembleDarkhorse: Ask an old fan who their favorite Portrait Ghost was and there's a good chance it'll have been Area-spanning ally Madame Clairvoya or pretty young GamerChick pianist Melody Pianissima.

** King Boo went on to become this in later games through playable appearances in spin-offs and occasional boss appearances.



* ItWasHisSled: Mario being trapped by Boos in a painting along with King Boo's usage of a Bowser suit were surprising twists that have since become common knowledge about the game.



** Poison Mushrooms are generally more annoying than challenging as they just shrink you and forbid you from using your vacuum (it doesn't help that the non-boss Portrait Ghosts drop these when suck away enough of their health, and touching the 'shroom will break your lock on them automatically when you shrink, ruining your frame ranking.).

** The final boss, [[spoiler: King Boo]]. For starters, his Bowser Suit has quite a few more attacks than most of the other bosses in the game. He can toss explosive spiked balls at you, suck you into his mouth, breathe fire, and trample you. When you blow the suit's head off, his head can fire paralyzing ice balls as you are trying to pull [[spoiler: King Boo]] in for the kill, which can screw you over if you are going for the gold frame here. When [[spoiler: King Boo's]] health is lower than about 200, he will put his Bowser head on backwards, which results in him running all over the place sporadically. [[spoiler: King Boo]] himself has only one attack if you let him fly about, [[spoiler: which is trying to ram you, as is typical of Boos by this point.]] Plus, there are pillars that are littered around the arena which can be either a help or hindrance to your folly. But when you beat him once, you can beat him any time after that provided you keep on your toes and avoid the attacks effectively.

** Mr Luggs is an optional ghost for a good reason. While the process to get to him is not too difficult, once he gets mad, he starts shooting fireballs at the player in quick succession for a fairly drawn out period of time. Combined with the long dining table that takes up most of the room, this gives the player little room to evade when dodging the fireballs and vacuuming him up, which can make it a bit of a chore to acquire him, A Rank or not.



* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Mainly due to FanWank. For a game that has an E-rating; its FridgeHorror can come off as really grotesque for some, with all the events perceived as being downright ''horrifying'' with it's creepy music and ghosts. The game is thought to have a [[DarkerAndEdgier whole new level in dark]] compared to earlier Mario games with the player having to defeat [[spoiler: robot Bowser, controlled by King Boo by '''shooting off his head, and trying to suck up Boo's soul into your vacuum cleaner.''' On the other hand it IS a ''robot'' head...]]

* DesignatedVillain: Most of the Portrait Ghosts are found simply minding their own business and don't bother Luigi at all; a few of them even make it clear that they simply want to be left alone. (Since the regular ghosts are always willing to attack Luigi, this can lead to HardLevelsEasyBosses) They're not hostile and don't actually attack Luigi until they're attacked themselves, yet the game treats them as though they're villains. That said, there are also a few who are more malicious and will try to kill him with little, if any, provocation.

* TearJerker: The portrait ghosts are living shadows of their former lives, limiting themselves to one basic activity rather than letting go and resting in peace. Also Chauncey and Sue Pea are both aversions of InfantImmortality who die before being born and while sleeping respectively.

** [[AsteroidsMonster Boolossus, the third boss]]. The Boos that compose it start off fairly easy to catch. You have to freeze all fifteen Boos and capture them to win. Once you hit a certain number (usually around 7 or 6), they begin to avoid your ice blasts and will make more of an effort to harm you. Those alone are difficult to catch, but when you're one on one with the very last Boo, it will continue dashing at you and dodging your ice until you hit it. And you have to survive the fight without taking too much damage, whereas in most Portrait Ghost fights, it's determined on how long you hold them in your vacuum suction (in boss fights, the picture frame is determined by how much health you lost during the fight). This one Boo '''will''' outlast your health and quickly deny you that gold frame (if you have not lost enough health already earlier in the fight), [[LuckBasedMission unless you somehow manage to hit it during its dash attack.]] It was so difficult that the fight was given a re-imagining in [[VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon the sequel]] and made easier in normal gameplay. It's slightly more manageable in the PAL version of the game, as it allows Luigi to ride on the Poltergust while shooting ice (but only for this one boss), making him go faster. For those in the NTSC region... tough luck.

* GoddamnedBats: The ghosts that appear in the hallways. They're annoying, often pop out of nowhere, yet technically have zero health points (normally you have to battle ghosts to defeat them, but a ghost with 0 HP will die the moment you attack). It becomes even worse when the ''power goes out'' later in the game.
