|Final Smash||Poltergust 5000|
This article details Luigi as he appears in Super Smash Bros. Crusade, not the character as a whole. Please do not edit anything here unless it is categories that could be added or if the creator gives you permission.
Luigi appears as a playable character in Crusade, as he has been in past Smash Bros. games. True to his nature of being the younger brother of Mario, many of his moves seem to be copied from him, but they all have their own unique flair to them that makes Luigi the way that he is.
Compared to Mario, Luigi isn't as great on the ground. His dash attack is rather weak and his traction is very slippery, causing him to slide when he stops running; his only truly powerful attacks on ground are his smashes. On the other hand, his jumps are higher than Mario and his scuttle lets him stay up in the air for quite a while, drastically improving his aerial fighting.

Luigi's Final Smash is the Poltergust 5000. When used, Luigi will pull out the machine of the same name and turn it on, causing a large vaccuum effect. Anything near Luigi while he is sucking in things will get trapped and take constant damage, with the max being 20%. At the end, Luigi will shoot them all out. As a bonus, any items caught will be spit out as food.
This move is a reference to the Poltergust 5000, the main weapon of Luigi in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, where he is tasked with ridding different mansions of their ghosts.
- Makes 5 quick poses.
- Stiffens up and falls humbly to the ground, lifting himself back up with his feet.

- Looks back shyly and twiddles his thumbs.
- Rubs the back of his head.
- Pulls on his nose, stretching it.

Mario's younger twin brother, he seems to be an eternal understudy. Even with his own year declared by Nintendo, he couldn't help but have Mario in the front of the titles. Poor guy. Luigi has picked up a few tricks of his own over the years, so don't expect him to be a full copy of Mario.
Luigi's fireballs challenge the power of logic and defy gravity...that takes some serious concentration. His Super Jump Punch is also quite different, in that it's only really powerful if you're right next to an opponent. Hit 'em when they're close to give them a taste of a Fire Jump Punch!...and if they're not as close, maybe they'll take a point of damage or two.
Luigi's awkwardness shows when using the Green Missile, but the misfires can be especially painful. The range gets better when using the Quick Missile. And then you've got the Luigi Tornado...like, what is he doing? Who knew spinning in circles could come in handy? Especially if it's the Luigi Super Spin - that's powerful!
Pulling out the Poltergust 5000, Luigi embraces his fears and turns it on, sucking anything in its path, from items to characters. Being trapped into that dusty container is no easy task and you'll be racking up damage quick. At the end, the characters inside will be shot out far away, while the items spit out will become useful items for Luigi.
- Luigi is now able to wall-jump, something that he could do in the beta of SSB4 but not in the final game.
