* EightPointEight: [[http://asia.gamespot.com/luigis-mansion-dark-moon/reviews/luigis-mansion-dark-moon-review-6405758/ GameSpot]] gave the game a score of 6.5. The Metacritic average is 86.
** Not to mention the review itself was really strange. It mostly consists of glowing praise, only complaining about the check-pointing and one particularly frustrating sequence. Apparently it was frustrating enough to be worth 3.5 points.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: For E. Gadd since in the original game he states he was turning ghosts into portraits for his art collection, when makes him come off as a DesignatedHero since not only is there not any moral reason for it, but many of the ghosts he went after weren't even violent unless provoked. This game, most of the ghosts are friendly until the Dark Moon is shattered, and after it's reassembled and the ghosts go back to normal, he releases all of them.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In one of the missions for the third Mansion Dr. Gadd tells Luigi to stop trembling in fear whenever he uses the teleporter, saying that they've "done this a dozen times" and there's nothing to worry about. [[spoiler: Of course, he's proven wrong at the end when King Boo is able to sabotage it.]]

* JerkassWoobie: As cruel as the Boos are in this game, the helpless squeaks they make as Luigi crams them through the Poltergeist's nozzle do manage to make you feel bad for them, if only a little.

** The Ice Monster controlled by the Shrewd Possessor. You have to master using the [[ScrappyMechanic 3DS' Gyroscope]] and overall terrible circle pad aiming to destroy pieces of the boss' armor using finicky cannonballs. If you screw up 6-7 times in a row his armor will re-freeze so you have to do it all again. To top it off it is possible to overheat your cannon resulting in a [[OneHitKill instakill]]. And guess what? You have to do it all over again. That's not even getting into attempting to [[ThatOneAchievement 3 star it]].

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad King Boo]] sheds any [[WellIntentionedExtremist redeeming qualities]] from the [[VideoGame/LuigisMansion previous game]] and becomes an [[TheUnfettered unfettered monster]]. After his first defeat by Luigi, King Boo [[ItsPersonal is consumed by his lust]] for [[{{Revenge}} revenge]] against Luigi, and shatters the Dark Moon, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy enslaving the minds of the once-docile ghosts of Evershade Valley to his control]]. Unleashing them on the valley, King Boo abducts [[spoiler:Mario himself and]] several Toads [[AndIMustScream and imprisons them within paintings]]. Uncaring about his minions, King Boo [[spoiler:performs experiments on his ghosts against their will]] to amplify their destructive potential, and calmly allows his own Boos to be caught and sealed by Luigi in a stark contrast to his [[AFatherToHisMen characterization in the last game]]. After Luigi gets close to restoring the Dark Moon, [[VillainousBreakdown King Boo starts to lose it]], and [[spoiler:tears open a portal to the ghosts' homeworld with the intent to destroy the universe]] as an act of spite. Once he's foiled, King Boo [[spoiler:warps Luigi to his own dimension]], announcing his intent to trap Luigi and all his friends in paintings as he [[TakeOverTheWorld conquers the world]] and "paints the town red." [[KnightOfCerebus Shockingly dark]] for a [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros series]] that is usually [[VileVillainSaccharineShow lighthearted]], King Boo devolved into an [[TheSociopath uncaring sociopath]] who would willingly [[spoiler:kill everyone]] just for a chance to get back at his rival.

* [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter They Wasted A Perfectly Good Boss]]: After the battle against the Grouchy Possessor (see BestBossEver above), expectations were held high for the Harsh Possessor. The Haunted Towers theme is an overgrown garden of exotic and dangerous plants, and there are also two rooms devoted to [[GoddamnedBats crows]]. What form does the Harsh Possessor take? A giant carnivorous plant? A giant mother crow? Neither. Instead, a [[spoiler:staircase]]. Yes, it was an unexpected surprise, but given the theme of the Haunted Towers and the expectations created by the Grouchy Possessor, it felt like a bit of a let-down.

** The Boos (besides King Boo, of course) are rather adorable as well, with their [[PunnyName pun-tastic names]] and signature high-pitched cackles. Not to mention that little *squeak* they make when you vaccum them up.
