The Haunted Towers are the second mansion Luigi travels to in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon to find a Dark Moon piece. This mansion, besides being partially destroyed by a giant oak tree growing in the middle, has a greenhouse-like theme, which can be compared to the forest worlds of the mainstream Mario games. The mansion contains six floors and a basement, making it the tallest in the game. Luigi meets a Toad assistant here. The mini-bosses are The Three Sisters, fought in the Old Graveyard, and the main boss is the Harsh Possessor, which possesses a staircase in the Tree House at the top of the mansion.

History[edit]

The Haunted Towers were abandoned for some time and were used as a greenhouse prior to their abandonment, but the whole area became infested with plants and started to fall apart. Everything in the mansion runs off a Hydro Generator. The Haunted Towers were owned by The Three Sisters, as three portraits of women can be found in the Family Room, toys for a child in the Rumpus Room, and a bedroom in the west tower. For unknown reasons, there is a large graveyard behind and under the mansion.

In-game description[edit]

These remarkable towers are built around a colossal tree. The original owners had a liking for gardening and exotic plants, which are now growing out of control!

Missions[edit]

Mission Image Description Mission Goal Objectives
B-1 A Job for a Plumber A Job for a Plumber from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon The towers' machinery isn't active. I'm guessing the ghosts broke it already. We need to get the Hydro Generator running before we can search for the next Dark Moon piece. Most of the machinery in the Haunted Towers is powered by water. Check the Hydro Generator, and make sure the water is flowing normally.
  • Check the Hydro Generator.
  • Fix the water pump on the roof.
B-2 The Pinwheel Gate The Pinwheel Gate from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon With the water flow restored in the Haunted Towers, we can resume our search for the Dark Moon piece. And now I have a better idea of where it might be! The next Dark Moon piece has been located in the upper section of the Hollow Tree. Explore the interior of the Hollow Tree, and find a way up.

A gang of hiders have removed the pinwheel vanes that are used to open the gate leading to the Hollow Tree. Recover them all!

  • Enter the Hollow Tree.
  • Recover the pinwheel vanes.
B-3 Graveyard Shift Graveyard Shift from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon It's time to repair that pinwheel lock! Once that's done, you should be able to get inside the Hollow Tree and look for the passageway to the top. Open the pinwheel gate, and make your way inside the Hollow Tree. Once inside, search for the passage leading to the upper section of the big tree.
The door that leads to the treetop is locked, and it can only be opened with a special key hidden in an old Crypt. Find the graveyard, enter the Crypt, and grab the key.
The special key is no longer in the Crypt, but you've rescued a Toad assistant. Escort him to the Gardener's Lab, and send him back to the Bunker.
  • Attach the pinwheel vanes.
  • Find the mysterious passage.
  • Search the Crypt for a special key.
  • Send the Toad to the Bunker.
B-4 Pool Party Pool Party from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon The Toad you rescued in the Crypt managed to bring back a snap shot from my tridimensional security camera! Let's take a look at it. Reach the Rooftop Pool, and look around for the special key.
  • Reach the Rooftop Pool.
  • Look for the special key.
B-5 Doggone Key
That Dog, the Key Hog
Doggone Key from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon A very frisky spectral pooch took the special key that we need! Track the dog down and get that key! Use the Dark-Light Device to find the trail of paw prints that the ghostly dog left behind. Once you find the dog, recover the special key.
  • Find the ghostly dog.
  • Recover the special key.
Boss Tree Topping Tree Topping from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon We've finally got our mitts on that elusive special key! Now we've just got to get to the treetop and grab the Dark Moon piece. Once inside the Hollow Tree, climb to the treetop and look for the Dark Moon piece in the Tree House.
  • Find the Dark Moon piece in the Tree House.
Bonus Hostile Intrusion Hostile Intrusion from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon We have a small problem. The Parascope found significant paranormal signs in the towers. Nothing you can't manage! Ghosts have returned to the Haunted Towers! Find and capture all of the ghosts as quickly as possible.
  • Capture all the ghosts as soon as possible!

Trivia[edit]

  • This is the only mansion to have its own opening cutscene for each mission.
  • Located in the Rumpus Room (Play Room in the PAL version), there is a pink dollhouse. The house appears to be the Haunted Towers, except without the huge tree in between the east and west tower. It is presumably what the building had originally looked like before it was abandoned (implied by the window matching the window of the Rumpus Room it gives the player a view through), indicating that after this happened and the building became overgrown with plants, the giant tree destroyed the middle tower.
  • If the player positions Luigi under the leaky pipe in the staircase, he will take off his cap and use it to scrub in between his arms while whistling a tune, as if he is in a shower.
