We’re already nearing the end of October and Halloween is so close. I thought it was only appropriate to talk about a ghost dog.
Polterpup is an adorable dog from Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. He’s a ghost so he somehow passed away, but that doesn’t damper his spirits (sorry, not sorry).
Dark Moon is the one and only game Polterpup has been in. So far, at least. I believe he’ll be making an appearance in Luigi’s Mansion 3 for the Nintendo 3DS! He aids Luigi as much as he hinders Luigi in Dark Moon. He’ll steal important items such as keys to the next area and Luigi needs to chase him down to get it back. It’s all a game to Polterpup, though. On the other hand, if Luigi finds golden dog bones throughout the levels, Polterpup will revive Luigi when he game overs.
I love Polterpup as a character because he contributes to plot in some ways and also is a revive mechanic for Luigi. Plus, he’s cute and who doesn’t want a ghost puppy around?
I’m looking forward to seeing what else Polterpup can get into! Honestly, I’d love to see him as an assist trophy in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate.
