Greenies are the first ghosts that Luigi comes across in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. The Greenies were originally helping Professor E. Gadd, but when the Dark Moon shattered, they turn against him. Greenies usually appear in groups ranging from 2-5, and have 10 HP. In the ScareScraper, sometimes their HP is more than 10. There is also a gold variant that expels large amounts of treasure when captured.

Greenies attack Luigi with a short range punch that does 20 damage, similar to Gold Ghosts, and they are able to equip themselves with various objects to fight against Luigi. They can equip themselves with sunglasses to block the Strobulb's effect, which Luigi must vacuum off with the Power Gauge built up. They can also pick up objects (example: Keys, Pumpkins) if left on the floor for a certain amount of time. They also can use a rolling pin and pan lid (or other weapons) to increase their attack range and block the Strobulb's effect. This forces Luigi to remove the equipment or find an opportunity to use the Strobulb. Luigi can also use the Dark-Light Device to reveal them if they are invisible. If used long enough, the Greenie will taunt or lift up the item on its head, allowing Luigi to stun it and capture it.
Greenies are capable of disguising themselves as mummies. Luigi gets around this by leading the mummies into a wall or torch to burn the bandages or to give him a chance to pull them off. They also change up their attacks sometimes. In the Old Clockworks, several Greenies are found creating mini-tornadoes to drag in Luigi and do damage. They also develop a paranormal shield which gives them infinite HP that can be reduced to 10 HP by waiting for the Power Gauge to build up to at least the same power level as the color of the shield, and then pressing .
At the end of the game, like all of the other ghosts, they regain sanity and become friendly again as a result of the Dark Moon's restoration.
