Nana, the Scarf-Knitting Granny is one of the ghosts from Luigi's Mansion. She is found in the aptly-named Nana's Room, in the third area of the mansion. Nana resides in the room knitting a scarf. To get her attention, Luigi knocks her balls of yarn onto the floor, thus provoking her into attacking him. She attacks by floating around the room on her rocking chair. Luigi sucks up the three yarn balls and hits Nana with them to expose her heart to attack, all the while avoiding her needle eye beams. If Luigi misses, Nana cackles and disappears. The only way to make her reappear is to exit the room and enter again. She escapes with medium pulls when she gets sucked in by Luigi.

Trivia[edit]

  • Nana is the oldest portrait ghost (who has a known age) in Luigi's Mansion.
