* YankTheDogsChain: After the {{Kaiju}} fight, Morty will be busy in the editing room giving his film the finishing touches. If you decide to capture him before he finishes, the film never gets completed. [[spoiler:You can downplay this trope after facing Polterkitty, which gives him time to finish it.]]

* SkippableBoss: There’s nothing forcing you to capture him once he hands over the ninth elevator button. You’ll just miss out on the achievement you earn by doing so and his canister in the Gallery will remain vacant.



* WritersBlock: Suffering from this when Luigi meets him. The goal of the floor is to help him shake it off, and eventually, help him complete his film.

* ZeroEffortBoss: If you decide to capture him, he has so little health (just 25 HP, exactly 1/4 of what a basic {{Mook}} has) that he doesn't have time to put up any significant resistance. In fact, Luigi will probably capture him before he can slam Morty even once.

Added DiffLines:

* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: She is defeated and captured by Luigi, but she gets to share a containment dome with her beloved Polterkitty. Later on, King Boo is defeated and imprisoned in a dome right next to hers and she's shown happily swooning at him in the credits.

Added DiffLines:

*InformedAttribute: His in-game bio in ''3'' claims that he '[...] is always by his (Luigi's) side.' That is only true during the playable intro: after that, he disappears, only showing up in the occasional cutscene and rare scripted sequence where he helps him out and then vanishes again.

Added DiffLines:

* OverlyLongTongue: While still short in comparison to those from Yoshi and King Boo of course, it's nevertheless quite long which seems to get even longer whenever he's licking someone. Justified though, since he has a big nose that tends to get in the way otherwise.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainsOutShopping: Can often be seen performing odd jobs or just idling or goofing off around the hotel. In some instances, they’re so absorbed in what they’re doing that Luigi can walk on by without incident.


* TokenGoodTeammate: Again, the only Boss Ghost that's not hostile to Luigi; once filming wraps on his movie, he freely turns over the elevator button he had on him without a second thought.

* SmugSnake: She’s quick to brag about her planning ability, believing that she could easily gift Luigi to King Boo on a silver platter. She’s flabbergasted when a [[SoCalledCoward scaredy-cat]] like Luigi systematically dismantles her scheme and makes it up to her.

* BadBoss: She sends her entire staff to their capture in attempt to defeat Luigi just to impress her crush and blames them for being too incompetent to achieve her goal. Cutscenes show that her staff is terrified of earning her wrath.



* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: She genuinely loves Polterkitty. In her pre-fight monologue, she loses control remembering that Luigi caught Polterkitty before this. The ending has her sharing her containment dome with her precious pet.



* RageAgainstTheReflection: The vanity in her bedroom has a broken mirror, and it's strongly implied by her frequent makeup use [[spoiler:and true appearance]] that she lashed out at the mirror in anger at her appearance.

Added DiffLines:

* UnskilledButStrong: She has a massive HP pool and is physically strong enough to crush large furniture with one blow, but her fighting style consists solely of using her mirror like a club. She uses her advanced security system to make up for her lack of combat skill.


* EyelessFace: Played with. Like the rest of the Evershade Valley ghosts, Polterpup initially lacks eyes due to the Dark Moon being broken (or when he's asleep), but they appear once the moon is reconstructed at the end of the game. Yet in the third game, he's back to this trope with no explanation.

Like the rest of the Evershade Valley ghosts, Polterpup initially lacks pupils due to the Dark Moon being broken (or when he's asleep), but they appear once the moon is reconstructed at the end of the game. Yet in the third game, he's back to this trope with no explanation.

Added DiffLines:

* VanityIsFeminine: Female, and spends the entirety of her afterlife looking in a mirror.


Added DiffLines:

* StarvingArtist: As revealed by his [[BossSubtitles boss subtitle]].


Added DiffLines:

* DarknessVonGothickname: ''Hell''en ''Grave''ly.


* FatComicRelief: Very much so; he's a girthy ghost who's portrayed as bumbling and goofy.



* TheDividual: They dress the same, fight alongside each other, and generally hang out together.

Added DiffLines:

* MagiciansAreWizards: Despite being mere stage magicians, they have the ability to [[GravityMaster manipulate gravity]] and switch around where the rooms are in a building.


Added DiffLines:

* CoolBoat: He ''becomes'' the Cool Boat during his boss battle by possessing his own ship.


Added DiffLines:

* FlyingSeafoodSpecial: Like any ghost, he moves around by floating, but since he's a shark, he appears to "swim" through air.


Added DiffLines:

* UnderwaterBossBattle: Of the "hero is above water, boss is in water" variety. He spends the entire fight submerged in the pool.


Added DiffLines:

* TheDeadCanDance: Her entire schtick. She's a ghostly DJ who summons dancing Goobs in her boss battle.
