Purple Mice are ghosts that are found in Luigi's Mansion and its remake. Like Blue Mice, they serve as obstacles for Luigi. However, unlike Blue Mice, Purple Mice can also run up the walls and across the ceiling. This allows them to slam the doors shut on Luigi, causing him to take damage. If they hit Luigi, they reduce five HP, like Blue Mice.
