Spooky, the Hungry Guard Dog is a four-year old bulldog portrait ghost appearing in the game Luigi's Mansion. It is known to bite any seemingly edible thing in sight. Like the other portrait ghosts, Spooky is released by King Boo after the capture of Boolossus.
Spooky resides in the Boneyard in the mansion's backyard, where it rests in a doghouse. When Luigi approaches Spooky, the dog spots him and begins to chase him around the Boneyard, attempting to bite him each time after barking. If it does, Spooky won't let go of Luigi's rump until it is shaken off. After Spooky barks four times, an annoyed Mr. Bones appears. He complains about the noise and then attacks Luigi. Capturing Mr. Bones leaves a bone in the ground. Spooky stops chasing Luigi to lick the bone, causing it to let its guard down. In this state, Spooky is vulnerable and can be vacuumed by the Poltergust 3000. After struggling, Spooky is eventually captured, which causes a vortex leading to the Graveyard to appear in its doghouse.
One of the paintings in the Study is a picture of a bulldog. The picture may represent Spooky when it was alive.
