Vincent Van Gore is one of many ghosts that Professor Elvin Gadd had captured for his study of the paranormal. When he was released by King Boo however, he locked himself up in the artists studio on the Mansion's third floor, and brought to life an army of ghosts that became the backbone of King Boo's forces.

Van Gore created all the ghosts who tried to ambush Luigi throughout the game. To find him, Luigi must go to The Artist's Studio on the third floor of the mansion. Once there, Van Gore exclaims how angry he is because of Luigi vacuuming his creations. He creates seven ghosts to defeat Luigi, but when he vacuumed them, Van Gore becomes sad to the point of showing his heart. Then Luigi vacuums Vincent Van Gore and is later turned into a portrait.


  • It is unknown if Vincent Van Gore had some relation to the ghost family. However, it's very likely because he has some sculptures of the members of the family on The Artist's Studio such as Biff Atlas.
  • Vincent Van Gore's name is a spoof of the artist Vincent Van Gogh.
