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.

* WhatAnIdiot: Gadd. While he's clearly not there mentally throughout the game, the fact that he sold the King Boo painting at a garage sale really shows it. True, the Professor was led to assume that King Boo would need to be sent back through the Portraitficationizer, like Mario was, to be restored (little did Gadd- and us- know that Spirit Balls were kind of a thing King Boo could use), but being so careless with something so dangerous is still pretty bone-headed of him.

** The [[MarathonBoss Overset]] [[LevelInBossClothing Possessor]]. For starters, he's the biggest CombatPragmatist among his brethren: His possession choice? The arena itself, leaving you without a specific target altogether most of the time. His main attack method? ZergRush waves of prior enemies -- including some DemonicSpiders -- that even repeat if undefeated within their respective time limits. The rare event of him coming out to fight directly? His Paranormal Shield's actually immune to the Poltergust; you have to wait for an opening first. Oh, and the kicker? The wide-reaching clock hands can damage you as well -- and that includes whenever you get dragged into them.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: To continue on the point from HypeBacklash above, after beating the Spider Queen/Grouchy Possessor, E. Gadd makes a big deal out of the fact that possessor-types can possess and control living beings...which is never used again considering the following bosses are: A staircase, a clock, ice itself and suits of armor.

* HypeBacklash: 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]]. So what form does the Harsh Possessor take? A giant carnivorous plant? A giant mother crow? Neither. Instead, he chooses 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, many players felt a bit let-down.

* BrokenBase: Despite its overall better reception than its predecessor, the major divisive element is the Mission-based gameplay.
** And the game being split up into 5 mansions. Both are understandable given the platform and the need for more variety, but it's a shift away from the original style.

* 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.

* 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.
