Luigi's Mansion 3 How to Dismiss Gooigi

Gooigi is your sidekick in Luigi’s Mansion 3. The gunky Luigi-alike can be used to solve puzzles that would otherwise be impossible. He’s malleable, so he can squeeze through tight spots, but he’s also water-soluble, so you shouldn’t make him step into puddles. Gooigi will come as a gift from E. Gadd, and you’ll have to play through a short tutorial after you get the ability to summon him. Despite this tutorial, a number of players are having trouble when it comes to recalling Gooigi after he’s played his part. This guide is going to show you how to dismiss Gooigi in Luigi’s Mansion 3.

How to recall Gooigi?

In order to dismiss Gooigi, all you have to do is press the right analogue stick (R) twice. It’s the same button you used to summon him in the first place, but with double the presses. That’s all there is to it. The tutorial mentions this once, but it’s easy to forget as you’re coming to terms with all the new rules put in place by the addition of the slimy sidekick.

After you’ve unlocked him, you and Gooigi will become inseparable. He really opens up a world of opportunities for good old green Mario, so much so that you won’t be able to solve a lot of the puzzles without his help. After you’ve obtained his services, you might want to go back to the areas you’ve already explored and check out some of the stuff you might’ve skipped over because there was no way to solve it.

Gooigi can also be used as a second player in multiplayer. If you’re playing the Scarescraper, several players can play as Gooigies of different colors, like blue and gold, but we all know the green Gooigi is the only true one.
