Vincent Van Gore, Luigi's Mansion

Vincent Van Gore, the Starving Artist (Japanese: セニョールプジイ Señor Pujī) is a painter who has the ability to bring his paintings to life first appear in Luigi's Mansion.

History

Vincent Van Gore is responsible for creating the minor ghosts that flooded the rooms and halls of Luigi's Mansion. After being released by King Boo, Vincent Van Gore locked himself in The Artist's Studio, giving the key to his room to Sir Weston in the Cold Storage, and bringing his ghastly works of art to life. These ghosts filled the mansion, providing the backbone of King Boo's forces. As such, Van Gore was a fundamental player in King Boo's quest to capture both Mario and Luigi. Without the constant supply of ghosts, Luigi would have had a much easier time defeating King Boo and the portrait ghosts.

Story

After battling past almost all of the mansion's ghosts, Luigi ultimately discovered Vincent Van Gore, the source of the troublesome ghouls, in The Artist's Studio on the third floor of the mansion. However, instead of fighting Luigi directly, Van Gore brought his latest works of art to life to attack the green-clad plumber. As such, Luigi had to exterminate seven sets of minor ghosts (with three ghosts per set) before he could face off against the artist himself.

After Luigi eliminated all twenty-one ghost creations, Vincent Van Gore became deeply saddened by the loss of his artwork. In this state of depression, Van Gore's heart was exposed and Luigi easily sucked up the spirit with his Poltergust 3000. The ghost artist barely put up a fight, weakly pulling as he was being sucked in. After Van Gore was defeated, Luigi acquired the Secret Altar key needed to open the door to the Secret Altar.

Van Gore's ghosts

In battle, Van Gore used sets of ghosts to attack Luigi; each group consisted of three of the same kind of species (five in the PAL Hidden Mansion). In order, the seven following types of ghosts were:
