* CompleteMonster (includes ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion3''): [[VileVillainSaccharineShow King Boo]] sheds any of his [[WellIntentionedExtremist redeeming qualities]] from the first game and becomes an unfettered monster. After his first defeat by Luigi, King Boo is [[ItsPersonal consumed by his lust for revenge]], [[SanitySlippage devolving]] into an uncaring sociopath who would willingly kill everyone and destroy everything just for a chance to get back at his rival. In ''Dark Moon'', King Boo shatters the Dark Moon, enslaving the minds of the once-docile ghosts of Evershade Valley to his control. Unleashing them on the valley, King Boo abducts Mario himself and several Toads and [[AndIMustScream imprisons them within paintings]]. Uncaring about his minions, and in a stark contrast to his [[AFatherToHisMen characterization in the first game]], [[BadBoss King Boo]] 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. After Luigi gets close to restoring the Dark Moon, King Boo starts to lose it, and tears open a portal to the ghosts' homeworld with the intent to [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum destroy the universe]] as an act of spite. Once he's foiled, King Boo warps Luigi to his own dimension, announcing his intent to trap Luigi and all his friends in paintings as he conquers the world and "paints the town red". In ''3'', he is set free by [[LoonyFan Hellen Gravely]], and together they gather Luigi and his friends in the Last Resort hotel in another attempt to trap them in paintings. When Hellen and her staff are all captured, King Boo dismisses them as worthless failures and eventually tries to absorb the entire hotel, including all the captured ghosts and his own Boos, into a group painting [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill just to capture Luigi]].

* HilariousInHindsight: The Scarescraper has players controlling multiple different-colored Luigis. One of them is orange, which carries an uncanny resemblance to [[{{Webvideo/Vinesauce}} Sponge]].

* CriticalDissonance: Critics lauded ''Dark Moon'' much more than the first game, citing it's inventiveness, graphics, length, and gameplay to be superior to it's predecessor. Fans however believe that while the game is great in it's own right, consider this to be the OddballInTheSeries and find it weaker than the first.

** One of the first game's most major flaws was it's [[ItsShortSoItSucks short length]]. Thankfully ''Dark Moon'' was quick to fix this.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: For E. Gadd, since in the original game he states he was turning ghosts into portraits for his art collection, which 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. In 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.

* TheScrappy: Polterpup. A lot of fans hate this ghostly dog for always appearing out of nowhere to hinder Luigi's quest in a way (especially since he is supposed to be going after the Dark Moon pieces). Polterpup forces Luigi to track it down with the Dark-Light Device and backtrack through previous rooms and, unlike other ghosts, always seem to be able to escape from the Poltergust 5000. However, he does get rescued at the end after [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone genuinely being ashamed of his actions]] and Luigi (who has grown to dislike the dog as well) forgiving and adopting him.

* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: Gadd constantly calling you to critique your work is probably the only universally agreed weak point of this game. It gets annoying at times and he does it so frequently that it really slows down the pacing of the game, making him an almost unbearable chatterbox for even first-time players.

Added DiffLines:

* SophomoreSlump: While fans still argue that it's a great game in its own right, this game is generally agreed to be the weakest game in the Luigi's Mansion trilogy due to its mission-based structure, lack of portrait ghosts and its [[BrokenBase divisive]] "wacky" art style.
