Blue Twirlers, also known as smashers, are slow, normal ghosts that appear in Luigi's Mansion and the remake. They are one of the largest, heaviest and most powerful non-portrait ghosts found in the mansion. Blue Twirlers have over-sized fists that they use to make shock waves, that spread around and take ten HP if they hit Luigi. They have thirty HP each (45 in the PAL and 3DS Hidden Mansion), which can be whittled down by suction or elements. Though Blue Twirlers do not appear in any later installments of the Luigi's Mansion series, Slammers from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, and Hammers from Luigi's Mansion 3 behave similarly to them.
Blue Twirlers make a few minor appearances in other games of the Super Mario franchise. In Mario Power Tennis, a Blue Twirler occasionally appears in the Luigi's Mansion Court. In Mario Super Sluggers, Blue Twirlers are found in the Luigi's Mansion stadium, where they stun fielders that run into the graves that the Blue Twirlers reside within.
