Luigi's Mansion Fandom
Luigi's Mansion is a series of action-adventure video games with a few light horror elements. It spans over three different systems and consists of three different games. It is a spin-off of the Super Mario series. It is the only series within the Mario franchise to have all of its games feature Luigi as the main protagonist, instead of Mario. Throughout the series, Luigi explores various haunted buildings, taking on a ghost-hunting role by capturing various types of hostile ghosts. The series commenced with the release of the first Luigi's Mansion game as a launch title for the Nintendo GameCube. As with many other Mario-series games, it has a horrifying (no pun intended) fandom.
Why It's Horrifyingly Toxic (No Pun Intended)
- It heavily overlaps (for obvious reasons) with the titular character’s fandom.
- They praise King Boo's design in this series and criticize the one used in the rest of the Mario franchise (Super Mario 64 DS, the Mario Kart series etc.) in general because they say it's a "Big Boo with Peach's crown".
- They draw explicit fanart and RULE 34 out of the characters. (Mostly Melody Pianissima, King Boo, and the rest of the portrait ghosts)
- Some of them despise Dark Moon for the following reasons:
- Its lack of "creepiness" and "realism" and having a brighter atmosphere, which doesn't affect the gameplay at all.
- The mission-oriented gameplay, because it has that instead of a strictly “open-world” which lets you explore the mansion without having to complete missions.
- The lack of portrait ghosts from the first game, which is justified in-game due to being a sequel where Luigi already got them all back in their portraits in the first games.
- Some also criticize the 3DS port of the first Luigi's Mansion game for the same reason as Dark Moon; lack of creepiness, and lower resolution compared to the original Gamecube version. It has lower resolution because it’s on the 3DS, which is lower resolution than the Gamecube.
The Only 5 Redeeming Qualities
- Some mature Luigi's Mansion fans exist.
- They do have a point about some of Dark Moon's problems.
- Some fans make good animation parodies and awesome remixes.
- Some mature Dark Moon and 3DS Luigi's Mansion haters exist.
- The fans don't immaturely criticize Luigi's Mansion Arcade (due to its obscurity) and Luigi Mansion's 3.
