to:

* Why did Luigi fall for such an obvious scam? He didn't. He was there to find Mario. Mario fell for the scam. And "Your brother won a mansion in a contest you didn't know he entered" is a lot less unbelievable.

Added DiffLines:

* Luigi can't jump as normal because he is carrying a cumbersome vacuum around on his back.



to:

* Why does King Boo and the rest of the ghost seem so much more terrifying and KnightOfCerebus in this game when compared to thier other appearances. Simple because in those games we are seeing the ghost how the Fearless Mario sees them, but in this game we see how the Phasmophobia Luigi see them.


* A weird meta example: the game is kicked off by Luigi winning a mansion in a contest he didn't even enter. Or, to put in another way: in true Luigi fashion, [[WinsByDoingAbsolutelyNothing he won it by doing absolutely nothing]].

** Not made any better when Madame Clairvoya herself is shocked by [[spoiler:Bowser actually being relevant at all in King Boo's scheme, since she points out that Bowser had been soundly defeated by Mario, and specifically theorizes that King Boo has ''[[BackFromTheDead revived]]'' Bowser. If Bowser was still alive after his defeat, then said choice of words wouldn't make much sense]]. This is made even more horrifying when this also presents hints that [[spoiler:Mario may have ''[[KilledOffForReal killed]]'' Bowser at some point in the past]]. Luigi is a dark game indeed.

* There's those two ghost twin children who love to play hide and seek, nothing inherently wrong with that right? Well if you happen to find a diary in the study, reading an entry reveals that they both like to hide during the game, sometimes causing the game to go on for a very long time...oh dear.

** Nana has the key to Henry and Orville's room, implying she is their grandmother, but Petunia is never referred to as "Aunt" in thd game.

** [[CowardlyLion Yet somehow through all this traumatization]], [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome he took out an army of ghosts by himself]].

** Her name is ''Miss'' Petunia. But Nana's diary entry about pranking her makes it seem like they're family, so her being an aunt is possible.



* All the area 1 portrait ghosts plus Henry and Orville are members of the same family. That means something horrible must have happened to kill all five at the same time. It gets worse if you notice there is also an Uncle Grimley, Aunt Petunia and Nana who could also be related to this family.

to:

* If you look carefully, you'll see that all of the ghosts on the Second Floor are related--Neville and Lydia are married with three children, and Uncle Grimmly, Aunt Petunia, and Nana are their extended family. The only exception is Sue Pea, although many [[EpilepticTrees fan theories]] HandWave this by claiming she's a cousin.
* Why does the first child you find in the Twins' Room accuse you of cheating after you uncover the second? Simple--if you're doing it the "right" way, that first twin just saw you expel an element on the box! Of course that's against the rules!

Added DiffLines:

** This is further supported by the fact that Luigi ''does'' find Mario's Star but it's hidden away inside of something ([[ItMakesSenseInContext the Moon]]) rather than in the mansion proper, which suggests that Mario could've had a way out of that painting if he hadn't lost that star.

Added DiffLines:

* Luigi's humming and calling for his brother make up a chilling, creepy "soundtrack".


* E. Gadd seems [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight none too shocked]] that the person making surprise contact with them is his own future self. But that makes sense if you remember this [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime isn't the first time]] he's been the "past self" in time travel shenanigans.
