It’s no secret I absolutely enjoyed my time with Luigi’s Mansion 3. It’s hard not to talk about this game all the time. I beat it within of week of having the game and I can’t wait to play through it again when I have the time. In the meantime, I’m going to talk about some of my favorite bosses in the game. Please note, this may contain spoilers if you haven’t beaten the game yet.
The third floor mimics a shopping mall and the boss is none other than the security guard. Except he’s scared. He sees Luigi and hides behind his desk. I think it shows the personality behind the boss and it made me feel bad to fight him. Kruller found a water gun and fights you using that which is cute. I know it’s to show off Gooigi’s weakness, but still. I enjoyed it.
This boss was actually pretty annoying. It took some getting used to when it came to figuring out how to fight him. However, the atmosphere was great. This battle is in a ring and King MacFrights is on a horse with a joust. Meanwhile, ghosts are sitting in the stands cheering when you get hit and booing you when you hit him. It’s quite funny.
This floor was pretty tough. For the first time in the game, I had to look up how to solve the puzzle. It was fun though and well designed for the most part. When you complete the puzzle and trigger the boss battle, Morty, a film director, is so excited to have you. He thinks Luigi would be perfect to play the star in his movie. Thus, the boss battle is between you and a ghost dressed in a Godzilla-like costume. Again, it’s a lot of fun. Morty is the main boss and it’s optional to catch him or not. Of course, you don’t know that right away until you catch him and get an achievement… I felt so bad that I captured him.
Serpci is a female pharaoh. You fight her in the Tomb Suites by a temple surrounded by sand. This battle was the first battle that killed me. I died multiple times, I’m sad to admit. The battle itself isn’t too hard but for some reason I kept messing it up. I enjoyed my time with it though. Serpci creates faces and hands out of sand that attack you. And yes, it is just as creepy as it sounds.
What a mouthful, right? I don’t care, this is the best floor, hands-down. This boss was so much fun and I wish it lasted longer. You fight on a dance floor while the DJ plays music and her minions, ghosts in red hoodies, dance to the beat. Yes, this is the actual beginning of the fight. No, I didn’t know that right away. Luigi stood still tapping his feet and snapping his fingers (adorable!) while watching the ghost dance. I was totally mesmerized and watched them dance way longer than I should have.
