Gallery (Luigi's Mansion)
The Gallery is an area in Luigi's Mansion located in the vicinity of Professor Elvin Gadd's laboratory. In here, one can see the pictures of Luigi's captured portrait ghosts. Each of its two halls leads to a room with a large portrait of King Boo. On either side of his painting are two angel statues, which will flap their wings if they are interacted with. A picture of Luigi's NEW Mansion also appears after beating the game.
The game's Nintendo 3DS remake features a brand new Gallery. The remake's Gallery includes a more open-spaced room design that houses all 25 portraits organized on each floor by Area, a double door leading to a dedicated room that holds King Boo's painting and a Game Boy Horror cartridge for a third-person camera search function, a silver statue base to the right of the double door to check in-game achievements, and a room to the east with three paintings of common ghosts, the Mansion's ranking, and the 35 named Boos. Luigi can interact with the portraits by changing their frame color to bronze, silver, gold or platinum and can enter "Boss Rush" mode to attempt to recapture the portrait ghosts in the fastest time possible. This mode can be used to obtain frames the player has missed.
In order to change a portrait to the silver, gold or platinum frame, Luigi must have caught the portrait ghost within the requisites for that frame first. For instance, if Luigi managed to capture Biff Atlas and only earned enough pearls for a silver frame, he cannot change the frame from silver to gold or platinum. If Luigi has caught the Ghost with enough pearls to earn a gold frame, the bronze and silver frames are unlocked automatically and can be switched between. In the remake, platinum frames are introduced, being superior to the gold frame and requiring Luigi to suck up at least 140 HP in a single pull and, in the case of Area Bosses, have 95 or more HP at the end of the battle. This is only possible to accomplish within the Hidden Mansion.
