King Boo's Illusion is the final area in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. It is where Luigi battles King Boo. Upon defeating the Tough Possessor from the ghost dimension for the first time, Professor E. Gadd tries to pixelate Luigi out to meet him in the Bunker. However, the transmission is intercepted by King Boo, and Luigi is placed back into the illusion world, automatically starting the next mission, A Nightmare to Remember. After completing the game's story mode once, King Boo's Illusion will be available on the mansion select screen.
