In Luigi's Mansion, Luigi used it to suck up ghosts, Boos, coins, and other things. The Poltergust 3000 was created by Professor E. Gadd, and the professor gave it to Luigi and taught him how to use it at the start of the game. It can not only suck up things, but can also shoot fire, ice, and water.
And in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Poltergust 3000 appeared as a collectible trophy.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl Trophy DescriptionEdit
This is the Poltergust 300 trophy's description in Super Smash Bros. Brawl:
"A vacuum cleaner developed by Professor Elvin Gadd of the E. Gadd Science Corporation. He gives it to Luigi, who uses it to trap ghosts in a haunted mansion after stunning them with his flashlight. It also absorbs elements like water, ice, or fire that it can then shoot out. An optional accessory to this fine product is a machine that converts the trapped ghosts into portraits."
- In Mario Kart DS, one of Luigi's karts is known as the Poltergust 4000.
- A similar device known as the Super Poltergust 3001 appeared in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. It was also created by Professor E. Gadd. Just like the Poltergust 3000, it can suck up things. The only difference from the Poltergust 3000 is that the Super Poltergust 3001 can be ridden on.
