Luigi, with Polterpup sleeping on his detent, is watching the picture being took by Strong Greenie from Luigi's Mansion : Dark Moon. However, then, he hears King Boo laughing. He decides to go outside, where he notices the Treacherous Mansion is infested with ghosts AGAIN. Suddenly, a Hider, who had sneak him up from behind, takes his Poltergust 5000, and throws it into the wall, thus nearly destroying it. The Plotergust malfunctions, transforming him into Polter Hitman, a dangerous robot. Luigi, who can't believe a Hider should do that while friendly due to the Dark Moon, and Polterpup flee to the Bunker, where E.Gadd and R.William combine the Poltergust 3000, the Poltergust 5000 (a copy) and the Poltergust 4000 (from Mario Kart) into one powerful machine : The Poltergust 1200 ! But when they arrive back at Luigi's house, it's revealed why the Hider broke the Poltergust 5000 : The Dark Moon is not broken, but all the ghosts are brainwashed and hypnotized by The Brain ! He also trapped King Boo and the Koopalings into mind control ! And the Brain even parodies Star Wars by freezing Bowser into carbonite ! Luigi will need to go through all the mansions again, including some new ones to save the planet from being conquered by The Brain !
