Purple Grabbing Ghosts (sometimes called Purple Grabbers) are an enemy found in Luigi's Mansion. They are a sub species of the normal grabbing ghost. As their name suggests, they have a purple color. Similar to Blue Grabbers, they are invisible to Luigi.

Grabbing Ghosts

They are only found in the Projection Room and about 10 of them are encountered. They are able to deal damage so be mindful of that. In order to spot them, the player must use the screen projector to mark their shadows and location.


The Projector Room is their only appearance in the game. They only are in this room during Area 3.


  • Rather than being completely invisible, they have a shadowy outline.
  • They only appear in one room throughout the game.
