I just found a Toad in the Haunted Towers tree, then I get blocked by 3 female ghosts with mirrors. They spin around and eventually one peeks from behind the mirror and you can strobulb them, but after you start vacuuming them up, one of the other ghosts will hit you.

They hit you so early and for so much damage this isn't enough to beat them. So what exactly do I do against these three? If I flash one and wait, all three disappear again, so I don't see a way to catch more than one off guard at once.

I'm also having trouble defeating the three sisters because if you miss with the strobulb while they are circling, they all charge at you and you can't escape, so you lose 20hp. Meaning if you miss 5 times, you are dead! I have tried the mission 20 times now, each with the gold dog bone to revive me. When I do get hold of them and I try the method where you go towards the ghost you are capturing, I get dragged and lose 5hp. –  user65945 Jan 5 at 14:07

The main thing I was missing in the fight with The Three Sisters is that while vacuuming you dodge much faster by following the ghost, allowing me to dodge the attacks. Here's several useful tips:

  • Wait for a Sister to put down her mirror (which one does it is random) then quickly strobe them and start vacuuming.
  • Dodge toward the ghost you're pulling to avoid the other ghosts, then pull away to change up your A button attack. Repeat as necessary.
  • Strobulb the birds that spawn on occasion for some extra hearts between attacks.
  • Defeating a ghost gives you a heart.
  • Defeat the orange, small Sister first as she has the least HP. It's much easier to dodge with one ghost down.

Good answer. I got them to drag me to one side, then I pulled back, then when the others were about to attack, stop pulling and get dragged over to the other side. –  DisgruntledGoat Apr 5 '13 at 10:58

Charge the strobobulb and hope to hit all three with the blast.

This doesn't appear to work at all –  Ben Brocka Apr 2 '13 at 3:19
