Vincent Van Gore
“Eet eez you, no?”
Vincent Van Gore, the Starving Artist, is a Portrait Ghost and one of the main antagonists in the game Luigi's Mansion. He has the ability to bring his paintings to life, and is responsible for creating the minor ghosts present inside the mansion.
Vincent Van Gore resides in The Artist's Studio, on the third floor of the mansion. When Luigi enters the room, the ghost expresses his anger at seeing his creations being vacuumed. However, instead of fighting Luigi directly, Van Gore brings his latest works of art to life to attack him. As such, Luigi has to vacuum seven sets of minor ghosts (with three ghosts per set) before he can capture Vincent Van Gore himself.
After Luigi eliminates all of his ghost creations, Vincent Van Gore becomes very angry by the loss of his artwork. In this state, his heart is exposed and Luigi can easily suck up the spirit with his Poltergust 3000. The struggling Van Gore is eventually sucked inside the Poltergust and drops the Secret Altar Key. The minor ghosts in the hallways stop appearing after his capture.
