Bowling Ghosts are a fairly common type of ghost, that are about the size of a Gold Ghost and are yellow in color with green glowing eyes. Bowling Ghosts haunt hallways instead of rooms and are usually found along with Ceiling Surprises and in later areas Purple Bombers. They throw bowling balls at Luigi, attempting to trip him. They are one of the weakest ghosts in the game as they have 0 HP. Even if the player wards them off them with the Poltergust 3000 or an element, they eventually respawn. They are only removed when an area is finished.
- The Bowling Ghost is related with the gold ghost except thinner and taller.
- The Bowling Ghost replaced the Basher ghost after the beta.
