“Hey, it's a funny man. Should I play with him?”
Nana, Text from searching her heart.

Nana, the Scarf-Knitting Granny (Japanese: ババーラ Babāra) is one of the Portrait Ghosts that is encountered in Luigi's Mansion. She resides at the aptly-named Nana's Room, located at the third area of the mansion.


When Luigi enters the room, he sees Nana knitting a scarf; he then knocks her nearby yarn balls onto the floor, thus provoking her into floating around the room on her rocking chair. Luigi must suck up the three yarn balls and hit Nana with them to expose her heart to attack, all the while avoiding her needle eye beams. If Luigi misses when trying to hit Nana with the yarn, she cackles and disappears. The only way to make her appear is to exit the room and enter again. She tries to escape with medium pulls but she is unable to defeat Luigi.
