Virtual Boo

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
Professor E. Gadd showing Luigi the Virtual Boo

The Virtual Boo is a device created by Professor Elvin Gadd in Luigi's Mansion 3, modeled after the Virtual Boy. Like the Game Boy Horror and Dual Scream in the previous games, it allows Luigi to communicate to E. Gadd, displays mission objectives and a map of the current floor, and displays the pause menu. Like the actual Virtual Boy, its screen is displayed in red and black colors. Its ringtone is an arrangement of the original Luigi's Mansion theme.



  • When E. Gadd gives it to Luigi, he mentions that he plans on selling it and claims that it will "fly off the shelves" and that "red is all the rage, you know?", a joking reference to the Virtual Boy's commercial failure.[1]
