The Poltergust 3000 is a vacuum-cleaning weapon Luigi uses in Luigi's Mansion. After he meets Professor E.Gadd, he gives him the vacuum cleaner, which has the ability to damage, and eventually suck up ghosts or other objects like coins and bills. The Poltergust 3000 can also affect normal everyday items, like extinguish candlelit fires, make stationary ceiling fans move, and even cause vases to spin around. Throughout the game, Luigi can stumble upon "Element Medallions" that let him harness the power one of the three major elements (fire, water, and ice). Only one element can be active at any given time, and the only way use an element is to suck up an elemental mini-ghost. An updated version, the Poltergust 4000, was introduced in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.
