A Bat is a ghost species that is found in the GameCube video game Luigi's Mansion. Obviously they're in the shape of a real-world bat, and in the game there are two different types of them, each one performing a different attack on Luigi.

Purple Bats

Purple Bats can easily be considered the worst of the two, seeing that they attack Luigi no matter what. They hang from the ceiling for a short while, then swoop down in a pack to attack Luigi. If attacked successfully, Luigi has five health points removed.

Golden Bats

Golden Bats perform the same attack as purple Bats, though only do so if Luigi's Poltergust 3000 is turned on.
