A Waiter serving food to Mr. Luggs in the Nintendo 3DS remake

Waiters, also known as serving ghosts[1] or Waiter Ghosts,[2] are a type of Grabbing Ghost that appear in Luigi's Mansion and its remake. They are light blue ghosts dressed up in waiter outfits that carry plates of food in each hand. Only two Waiters are ever encountered, in the Dining Room, where they work tirelessly and endlessly to supply Mr. Luggs with food. Unlike most ghosts, Waiters cannot damage Luigi, and they have only 10 HP, like Gold Ghosts. Waiters are unaffected by elemental attacks despite their heart having neither fire, water, nor ice protection. Luigi can battle Mr. Luggs by making him run out of food, something that is usually done by vacuuming the Waiters into his Poltergust 3000, but Luigi can alternatively stun the Waiters with his flashlight, causing them to dissipate and reset and giving Luigi a brief opportunity to vacuum up Mr. Luggs's food. If the Waiters are present when Mr. Luggs is out of food, the Waiters flee in terror from his anger.
