These creatures cannot damage Luigi on contact or via attacks. Instead, they chase Luigi around and get in the way of the Poltergust 5000. If Luigi picks one up using it, he can shoot it around the room and stun it for a short time, similar to the Poinks from Super Mario Sunshine. They appear at the end of the first mission, Cold Case.
