Carnivorous Plant

A Carnivorous Plant at the Haunted Towers Entrance

Carnivorous Plants are enemies that frequently appear in Haunted Towers and on occasion in Treacherous Mansion in Luigi's Mansion 2. If Luigi gets too close to them, they will attempt to bite Luigi and chew him on him for 10 HP. If Luigi does not try to struggle to escape, it will deal an additional 5 HP for every few moments Luigi is still stuck. To escape it's grasp, Luigi must struggle by moving in different directions on the Circle Pad. To defeat a Carnivorous Plant, Luigi must find a hitchhiker plant, and lock on to the Carnivorous Plant. Once locked on, Luigi can fire the hitchhiker seed, and the Carnivorous Plant will try to eat it. Upon doing so, it will shrivel up, allowing Luigi more space, and less distraction. If Luigi does not have a hitchhiker plant available to him, he can flash the plant with his Strobulb to stun it for a short time, which is useful for getting past it. They often guard areas that Luigi must go to, or may act as an annoyance at certain point of the game.
