Deep within Luigi’s Mansion, when you’re exploring the Twisted Suites, you’re liable to come across a set of Magical Ghoulies boss – a tripartite set of ghosts that will astound you with your magic and, assuming you’re not careful, whoop your butt with it as well. This Luigi’s Mansion 3 guide will help you deal with the trio of Magician ghost sisters: Nikki, Lindsey, and Ginny.
Luigi’s Mansion 3 Magician Ghosts
All 3 sisters will be wearing top hats, which is their defensive item. They will all hide within the top hat and there’s nothing you can do to get them out of it. You’ll just have to bide your time and wait patiently for them to come out.
While you’re waiting, the magician sisters will shoot out playing cards at you, this isn’t a terribly difficult attack to overcome; either get out of the way or use Stomp. However, things get a bit more difficult when the top hats starting moving around on the stage (most likely going to circle close to the border of the stage) and will then start shooting out playing cards.
The strategy remains the same, but you’ll have to be a lot more mobile and more vigilant of everything around you.
At long last, the three tops hats, with the open part facing up, will land on the ground, with a rope made of handkerchiefs hanging out. Use the vacuum to start sucking up one of those handkerchiefs and pull the ghost out of the hat. Each ghost has a 100 HP of health, so you can beat them in one cycle, just make sure to make your attack count.
The magician sisters, once out of the top hat, will make an attempt to take you down, but stun them with your flashlight and bash them onto the ground a few times; beating 1 ghost will end the 1st phase.
The 2nd stage involves 3 top hats once more, except this time one of the top hats contains a bomb. So if you’re not careful and keep a watchful eye on each one of them, you’ll end up pulling out the bomb by the end.
The top hats will move around, trying to confuse you and lose track of the hat containing the bomb; just make sure to remember which hat has which – a ghost or a bomb. Outside of that, they’ll continue shooting out playing cards.
The magician ghosts will circle Luigi again and eventually end up with handkerchiefs sticking out. If you’ve kept track then you’ll know which hat to not go to. Go to any of the other 2 and pull out the ghost. Do the same thing you did with the previous ghost. After this, we head into the final phase.
The final phase is pretty much the same as the 2nd one; there are 3 top hats and now 2 of them contain a bomb. The best way to approach this is to keep a close eye on the hat that contains the ghost. That way, you’ll always know the right choice.
However, this phase may prove to be a bit of a challenge as not only will the top hats be moving a lot more swiftly, but when they begin to encircle Luigi, the lights will go on and off every few seconds, attempting to make you lose sight of the hat. You just need to remember which hat is which and estimate where it would be in terms of positioning after the lights come back on.
If you were able to keep track of it, this battle’s a done deal. Pull on the handkerchief when the time comes, and bash the ghost onto the ground. That’ll end this strange battle with the magician sisters
