Jarvis, Luigi's Mansion

Jarvis, the Jar Collector (Japanese: ツボーン tsubōn), is an antique jar-collecting ghost of unknown age in the game Luigi's Mansion. He is a purple ghost with yellow eyes and a rounded mouth and speaks in a stereotypical Scottish accent. Jarvis is said to love jars so much that it is the reason he lives inside one. Luigi first finds Jarvis in the Ceramics Studio on the third floor of Luigi's Mansion. Although Luigi does not need to capture Jarvis to save Mario, he can earn a Silver Diamond and two Gold Bars if he succeeds in capturing him.

After Luigi examines the area around the far left wall, Jarvis appears from one of the jars and challenges Luigi to a Whac-A-Mole-style game. If Luigi can hit Jarvis with blasts of ice seven times, the ghost allows Luigi to fight him. After collecting an Ice Elemental Ghost, Luigi shoots icy mist at Jarvis as he warps to different jars around the room. After seven hits, Jarvis proceeds to the next portion of the fight. If Luigi fails to hit Jarvis seven times, he gets teleported outside of the Armory.

Angered by losing the game, Jarvis levitates ceramic jars and tosses them at Luigi, dealing five HP damage for every hit. Luigi counters by sucking up Jarvis with the Poltergust 3000. Eventually, Luigi overcomes Jarvis's medium pull and captures the portrait ghost.
