Chef Soulfflé is the fourth boss encountered in Luigi's Mansion 3. He is encountered and fought on the second floor after Luigi locates him in the Mezzanine kitchen. Defeating Chef Soulfflé rewards Luigi with the elevator button to the fourth floor, after retrieving it from some mice. His name is a pun on "soul" and "soufflé".
It is actually possible to get inside the Kitchen as soon as the Suction Shot is unlocked (used to remove the sign blocking both doorways leading from the Grand Lobby), but to prevent the game from progressing on early, Chef Soulfflé will not appear until after Kruller has been defeated.
Chef Soulfflé bears an appearance similar to that of a normal chef. He has unruly brown hair, a large messy mustache, and turquoise eyes and mouth.
Luigi and Gooigi end up exposing Chef Soulfflé after sucking up a huge amount of smoke (presumably caused by his attempts at preparing food). After discovering Luigi and Gooigi in his kitchen, he drops the fish he was flipping and angrily confronts them.
Chef Soulfflé wields a frying pan, which he uses both to attack and to protect himself from the Strobulb. In order to defeat him, the player has to take it from him with the Suction Shot or fling pumpkins and/or watermelons at him to disarm him of his pan allowing for an opportunity to flash him and stun him to suck him in. If Luigi runs out of pumpkins and watermelons, Soulfflé will toss fish at him which can be thrown the same way. Once defeated, he struggles to escape before being sucked in, releasing several fishes in addition to the fourth floor elevator button, although a mouse steals the button before Luigi can retrieve it.
