A Gobber is a large ghost in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. Gobbers are very large and slow, making them easy targets when alone. However, with a group of ghosts, they may be more difficult to catch. They are first encountered in the first mission of Haunted Towers interrupting Luigi's level-clearing animation. They have 100 HP.

Abilities[edit]

Gobbers are able to throw paranormal goo on the ground and at Luigi, similar to the Garbage Can Ghosts from Luigi's Mansion. These goo puddles will hurt Luigi upon contact. Luigi should use a Power Surge to stop him from throwing goo. Gobbers also try to slam themselves into Luigi when he gets too close.

In ScareScraper, specifically in Rush Mode, if a player approaches a door in a dark room that has been seemingly cleared of all other ghosts, a Gobber may drop from the ceiling and coat one of the doors with its goo as it lands, rendering the door useless; the goo will disappear once the Gobber is defeated. This usually happens during Red Coin Scramble or when a Luigi is the last one of a group to leave the dark room.

Ghost Container Description[edit]

Their appetite is...ah...formidable. With stomachs that lack physical boundaries, they won't hesitate to devour everything around them! Be wary of the puddles of...goo.

Trivia[edit]

  • Gobbers and Strong Gobbers are quite similar to Mr. Luggs, they are both significantly overweight, they both use projectile attacks, and they both serve as minibosses.
  • In the ScareScraper a Gobber and two Greenies holding food can be encountered in the rooms. This may be a reference to Mr. Luggs and the two Waiters from Luigi's Mansion.
