This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Luigi's Mansion
Roivas Mansion will be a bonus level in the 2nd game
It would be interesting.

The twins are the cause of the mansion's current state.
Odd and reclusive from the game's very description, the two kids were probably that way for their dealings. They may have found a book of black magic in the library and locked themselves in their room trying to figure out a spell. When they did, things went horribly right, resulting in some force overtaking the mansion and killing the inhabitants, thus completing the ritual and releasing King Boo. This is the LEAST nightmare inducing possibility under this premise, as it could also be the twins becoming possessed and killing everyone personally before committing suicide.

At the end of every mansion but for the last in the second game, Luigi will rescue a Toad
Each time, they will exclaim,
Thank you Luigi! But your brother is in another mansion!
The second part is Jossed.

Luigi's Mansion actually occurs at the end of the Mario timeline

I'm actually kinda surprised that nobody has guessed this yet. King Boo is actually the ghost of Bowser coming back from the dead to take revenge on Mario in the afterlife. The game states that Bowser had died, and King Boo himself said that trapping Mario in a painting is revenge for all the troubles; it also explains why he has a giant robot of Bowser for the final boss. Additionally, the 50 Boos you capture in the game are the spirits of his long dead Koopa army.
  • Actually, King Boo ISN'T Bowser. When he talks about a grudge against the brothers, he could be referring to his various other defeats, such as in Super Mario Sunshine, which had Bowser as the final boss. Partially Jossed.
    • Luigi also uses the Poltergust 3000 for other occasions as well, such as Mario Power Tennis as his Defensive Power Shot, and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, where he uses it to suck E. Gadd in two occasions. In both the games mentioned, Bowser was clearly alive. Completely Jossed.

Luigi's been Dead All Along

The shadow "glitch" just seems too logical, and it would further explain this situation he's in.
  • Jossed, it seems like he's alive for the sequel.

Bowser has really been King Boo in all the later games.
Bowser had a Heel Face Turn and lets KB play him.

Luigi's original mansion will be the final level of the sequel.
  • If nothing else, it would be a great Shout-Out, plus all the new ghost types along with the old ones? Yes please.
    • Jossed.

The mansion in the sequel will be Ashley's.
It'd be great to team up with her to get rid of the ghosts.
  • Personally, I think that it would be cooler if Ashley is the boss and you have to fight her.
  • Maybe one of them, since the sequel will have multiple mansions.
  • Jossed.

Luigi singing the game's theme music is a form of Survival Mantra.
It makes sense, since he's visibly terrified throughout the course of the game. Why else would he be singing?

Chauncey died while still in the womb.
Chauncey's bio says he was born a ghost. However, this is impossible. This may be a clever way of saying he died before he could be born, perhaps intended to not freak kids out so much.
  • It's plausible that Lydia died while still pregnant with Chauncey.
    • Wow, this actually makes sense... Nice Fridge Brilliance.
    • Check the relative ages of Chauncey vs his parents. Unless they were ageless when alive, then they must have died long before he was born.

Neville was a relative of Nigel Thornberry.
Notice the resemblance?

The Ghost Portrificationizer was used to create the "painting" of Mario.
How would he become a painting in the first place?

The Mansion is a hundred percent real and the former resident human ghosts are on some kind of agreement with them.
Take warning, this is a long one.

Basically, the mansion is real. Professor Gadd only saw it appear out of nowhere because the Boos brought it back from a pocket dimension they put it in. They are known to do this to parts of the house throughout the game. Due to the fact that there is electric light hooked up to the house, there is no way the Boos could have made it from scratch. They hate light, it makes them extremely vulnerable to the Vacuum, which, according to King Boo, they are very aware of. They also go out of their way to keep the lights off. That's where the ghosts that were human came in.

They made a Deal with the Devil (or King Boo, but whatever) in which they were freed from their portraits (On that note, Gadd's a pretty shady character, isn't he? How do we know he was telling the truth about the mansion popping up out of nowhere? But, I digress.) and they would get their mansion back, sharing it with the Boos, of course, in return for keeping the lights of the house off, and stopping (or at least hindering) any of Mario's allies, such as Luigi.

Also, who are these ghosts, really? If this mansion has existed before the Boos caused their mischief with it, we can surmise that the original owners were most likely Nevillie and Lydia. They had their twins while alive, and while Lydia was pregnant with Chauncey, they all got some kind of disease, measles, smallpox, whatever, and died. As for the rest of the people, well, in whatever order, famous, rich people bought the house (Musicians, athletes, models) and also died. Sue Pea is a strange case, but it's possible that she's a friend of the twins who stayed the night at one point... and died. When scanning her, she says something about promising not to wet the bed, so, perhaps Neville or Lydia or whoever was really letting her stay murdered her for wetting the bed... Anyway, I'm still not sure where Bogmire fits in here.
  • Bogmire was stated to be a product of the mansion's fear and despair. Perhaps the mansion was cursed, and Bogmire was the reason for whatever killed everyone. To be perfectly truthful, I've always though Bogmire had something to do with the mansion, but was never quite sure what. Thanks to your theory, I now have some form of answer! Thanks!

In Dark Moon, King Boo will be planning to actually KILL Mario and Luigi.
Simply capturing them didn't work out, and King Boo is quite a bit more evil than Bowser...

First time Gadd and Luigi encountered each other in the mansion, they had the vaguest feeling they'd met somewhere before.
But they simply brushed it off as probably meaning nothing.

King Boo wasn't using a Bowser made suit. King Boo is the ghost of Bowser.
For starters, he's the "king" of the boos. He's also mad at Mario and Luigi for causing him so much grief when this has been the first appearance of the character...unless he was Bowser, a villain who would have perfectly good reason for having such a grudge against the Bros. Plus, Bowser has been known to dabble in the dark arts so this also wouldn't be anything new for him.
