“I'll send all the ghosts and trinkets you collect during your adventure down to the Vault for safekeeping. Check 'em out, sonny!”
Professor E. Gadd, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

E. Gadd's Vault, also known as the Vault, is an area in Professor E. Gadd's Bunker in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. It is available after the player completes the first mission in the main story mode for the first time. Here, the player can view all of their stats in the game. The amount of gold the player has obtained is shown on a computer monitor in the background while the player selects a unit. The rising floor panel lifts Luigi back to the Bunker.

The player can earn an E. Gadd medal on their file if they complete the entire Vault: This includes collecting every gem, capturing every Boo, receiving every Poltergust upgrade, and capturing every normal and boss ghost from Evershade Valley and ScareScraper at least once.


Ghost Container[edit]

The Ghost Container provides research information on all the ghosts Luigi has captured as well as showing a 3D model of each ghost. It also shows the highest W (Spectral Mass measurement) of the highlighted ghost the player has ever caught, along with the number caught. The number caught never rises above 99 no matter how many of the ghost have been caught.

The Ghost Container is similar to the Containment Unit used by the Ghostbusters.

The remote used to release the ghosts

Not found in the Vault itself, the Release Device is a yellow remote with a single antenna and two red buttons, one for the Ghost Container and the other for the Boo Canister. When one of the buttons is pressed, the corresponding device releases its ghosts. It is seen only in the epilogue, where E. Gadd holds it out in his hand.
