Nana, the Scarf-Knitting Granny is one of the Portrait Ghosts from Luigi's Mansion. She is found in the aptly-named Nana's Room, in the third area of the mansion. Nana resides in the room knitting a scarf, which she never finished in life and has gotten very long. Her portrait number in Professor E. Gadd's gallery is 3.

Luigi's Mansion

To get Nana's attention, Luigi knocks her balls of yarn onto the floor, thus provoking her into attacking him. She attacks by floating around the room on her rocking chair. Luigi sucks up the three yarn balls and hits Nana with them to expose her heart to attack, all the while avoiding her needle eye beams, dealing ten HP worth of damage. If Luigi misses, Nana cackles and disappears. The only way to make her reappear is to exit the room and enter again. She escapes with medium pulls when she gets sucked in by Luigi.

Physical Appearance

Nana wears a light violet dress over a multicolored shirt. She wears a choker and triangular earrings. She has a single tooth protruding from her lower lip, a long nose, round green eyes, poofy white hair, and pale blue-green skin.


  • According to her portrait bio, Nana still keeps knitting on her scarf, which she never finished in life. Now, it stretches 871 feet.
  • A portrait of a woman resembling Nana can be found on the east side of the parlor. This image may depict Nana's appearance when she was alive.
  • Nana is the oldest Portrait Ghost (who has a known age) in Luigi's Mansion.
  • On the bookshelf, Nana has a diary that states that she once pulled a prank on Miss Petunia by placing ice into her bathtub; this is the same strategy Luigi must use to defeat her.
