Luigi's Poltergust appears on his back and begins vacuuming in different directions around him. Luigi can guide which direction the suction is facing, but cannot move. After a certain amount of time or when all opponents are caught in the vacuum, the suction will stop and anyone caught in the vacuum will be ejected, flying far away.
Opponents trapped within the suction will be dealt 30% damage before being knocked back, being dealt an additional 10%. Because the Final Smash deals high knockback diagnonally upward, this makes it extremely effective on stages with low upper blast lines. However, the Poltergust 5000 will not affect opponents behind solid walls.
Additionally, items can become sucked toward Luigi, which can be knocked back to deal extra damage and allow Luigi or another fighter to pick it up. Items that are drawn to Luigi are the Steel Diver, Fire Flower, Gust Bellows, Ray Gun, Super Scope, Beam Sword, Drill, Fire Bar, Star Rod, Ore Club, and Home-Run Bat.
As Luigi can suck nearly anything near his location, this move technically combines trapping and focused Final Smashes.
A ghost-sucking vacuum cleaner created by Professor E. Gadd. In Luigi's ghostly adventures, it's the only thing standing between him and complete terror. In this game, it sucks in enemies, damages them, and then fires them diagonally upward. If it's used in an area with no ceilings, you might send them soaring right off the screen!
The Poltergust 5000 is the name of the vacuum that Luigi uses in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. It is an updated version of the Poltergust 3000 from the first game. It is also created by Professor Elvin Gadd, which he abandoned inside Gloomy Manor when the Ghosts of Evershade Valley became hostile. So Luigi goes inside the mansion to retrieve the vacuum found at the Garage inside of a vehicle's hood. Like the first game, Luigi can use to Poltergust 5000 suck up ghosts and objects (by pressing R button and blow).
As with the Poltergust 3000, the vacuum is equipped with a Flashlight. Throughout his quest, Luigi will encounter various tools to make the vacuum's power greater by collecting treasure in the mansions. Unlike the first game, the Poltergust 5000 can suck in 3 ghosts at a time; any other ghosts stunned with the Strobulb remain stunned until Luigi stops sucking up at least one and switches to the other one.
If Luigi uses the Poltergust G-00 on the Ice Climbers, it will spit them out individually as Popo and Nana are both technically separate characters.
