|First appearance||Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (2013)|
|Latest appearance||Luigi's Mansion Arcade (2015)|
Gold Greenies are a gold variation of Greenies in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. They have 20 HP and can be found usually in all missions in each mansion. They are hidden in several places of furniture or objects and spring at Luigi when he shakes the furniture or object. They do not attempt to hurt Luigi (except for the Hockey Gold Greenies at the Ice Lake), instead they try to escape upon being sighted. Capturing one yields a large amount of treasure, a large amount of coins, Bills and usually one Gold Bar, unless caught with another ghost or with a full bar.
Their concept is based upon the Speedy Spirit from its predecessor, Luigi's Mansion. Both hide in furniture, both attempt to escape, both yield a large sum of money if they are captured, and both cannot be found again if the player fails to catch them.
Ghost Container description
These greedy Greenies traded their slimy bodies for ones made of molten gold! Can't say I blame them.

|C-2: Underground Expedition||Canyon Narrows and Quarry||In the Canyon Narrows, there is a shaking door that leads to a minigame where five Gold Greenies can be caught.
In the Quarry, if the first few Greenies are caught quickly enough, then a Gold Greenie will appear.
|C-3: Roundhouse Brawl||Warehouse||On the second floor of the Warehouse, there is a moving box. Follow it until it stops moving and then open it.|
|C-5: Piece at Last||Crank Room||There are two Gold Greenies in this room. The first one is found sleeping northeast of the room. To get to it, Luigi must slowly walk past the two Slammers without alerting them, then travel up the gear and into the alcove to capture the Gold Greenie. The second one is found in the second locker from the left (the one that a Slammer was beating on).|
|D-1: Cold Case||Chalet, Ice Lake, and Under the Ice||In the Chalet, after capturing the Hiders and the Sneaker, pull on the bear rug's tail to expose a Gold Greenie.
At the Ice Lake, there is a Hockey Puck at the southeastern corner. Luigi should shoot it into the goal and two Gold Greenies will appear wearing hockey gear. These Gold Greenies have 10 HP.
|D-2: Hit Rock Bottom||Shaft and Deep Hall||While going down the Shaft, a Gold Greenie will appear holding up a crystal.
In the Deep Hall, Luigi should go to the left and look through the window into the Cinder Mine to find another Gold Greenie. When Luigi is done investigating, a Sneaker will appear and trip Luigi. The Gold Greenie and the Sneaker then high-five each other.

|E-3: A Train to Catch||Space Exhibit and Archives||In the Space Exhibit, there is a Gold Greenie hiding in a rocket. A log must be picked up from the Jungle Exhibit, then lit on fire with the torches in the Ancient Exhibit. The ignited log must then be taken back to the Space Exhibit to ignite the rocket. Once the rocket takes off, Luigi must exit through the door, and then re-enter the room to find the rocket crashed and the Gold Greenie exposed.
In the Archives, there are four boxes that Luigi must open in the correct order to get the Gold Greenie to come out. Luigi should open the southwest box first, then northeast, then northwest, and then southeast, and the Gold Greenie will come out.
