Appearances in video games
The Parlor first makes an appearance in Luigi's Mansion for the Nintendo GameCube.
When Luigi enters the mansion into the Foyer, he goes up a staircase and finds a set of doors in front of him. He attempts to enter the area, only to realize that the doors are locked. He then hears a ghost laugh, so he precedes to the Foyer to investigate the noise. Downstairs, Luigi finds that a Gold Ghost has a key inside of it. The Gold Ghost flees at the sight of Luigi, accidentally drops a key on the floor, and hides in the Parlor. Luigi then picks up the dropped key that allows him to access the Parlor.
When Luigi enters the Parlor, he walks in the room cautiously and scared. A Gold Ghost unexpectedly appears in front of Luigi, causing him to be scared. Luigi creeps away from the Gold Ghost as it tries to attack him. Luigi is then rescued by an old man who tries to vacuum the Gold Ghost inside of a vacuum cleaner, but gets punched by it. The old man introduces himself to Luigi, and is revealed to be called Professor E. Gadd. Three Gold Ghosts suddenly appear and they try to attack E. Gadd and Luigi, so they head to E. Gadd's lab.
At the lab, E. Gadd gives Luigi his vacuum cleaner, the Poltergust 3000. He trains Luigi to use it at the Training Room. He also gives Luigi a Game Boy Horror that primarily allows the two to communicate from far distances.
Back at the mansion, Luigi heads back into the Parlor. He finds six purple-lit candles and extinguishes the candles. The portraits of the Parlor then complain to Luigi for making the room light. Three Gold Ghosts then come out to target Luigi. Luigi uses his Poltergust 3000 to suck all three of them inside of his Poltergust 3000. The lights turn on and a treasure chest appears in the center of the Parlor. Luigi opens the treasure chest which has a key that allows Luigi to access the Anteroom.
When the mansion experiences a blackout, there are five Gold Ghosts that appear in the Parlor, instead of three.
The beta Parlor has a couple of differences in the beta version of Luigi's Mansion. The differences include the following:
- The entrance to the Anteroom is always blocked by two pieces of wood that makes the shape of an X.
- The picture in between the candles depicts a beta Gold Ghost. The beta Gold Ghost is a purple ghost wearing a top hat. In the Spaceworld 2001 version, the picture depicts a portrait of a man; this portrait is used in the final version.
- The table with alcohol bottles on it has a tablecloth underneath the bottles.
- There are only two candles next to the picture of the beta Gold Ghost, one on each side. The candle lights are orange, as opposed to purple.
