The flashlight is an item Luigi uses in Luigi's Mansion. When Luigi first enters the mansion, he is only armed with the flashlight. When Luigi progresses in the game, however, he can use it to stun ghosts.

The flashlight, under stylus control, is also used to stun Boos in the Super Mario 64 DS and New Super Mario Bros. minigame Hide and Boo Seek.

In the Nintendo Land minigame Luigi's Ghost Mansion, which is based on Luigi's Mansion, each of the four Mii players looking for the Gold Ghost Mii is armed with a flashlight, which is used to attack the ghost. It can be turned on and off; however, if players leave it on for too long, its batteries will run low until they run out altogether. New batteries that appear in the mansion can be collected to restore the flashlight's battery life.

Luigi's flashlight also appears in Mario Super Sluggers where it can be bought at Blue Pianta's shop to unlock the Luigi's Mansion stadium.

The flashlight is an inventory item in the Nintendo Adventure Book Flown the Koopa. If they have it, Mario and Luigi use it to explore the basement of Magikoopa's fortress, but the batteries die, leaving them vulnerable to a pack of Mega Moles.

The flashlight merges with the Poltergust 5000 in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. This flashlight has two upgrades Luigi must find: the Strobulb and Dark-Light Device.

The flashlight returns in Luigi's Mansion 3, along with the Strobulb and the Dark-Light Device, serving as similar purpose as it did in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. An unlockable aesthetic upgrade called the Flashlight Type-B can be unlocked by capturing all the Boos in the game.
