Boos (originally known as "Boo" Diddlys [1] and later Boo Buddies [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] ) are common ghost enemies in the Super Mario franchise that first appear in Super Mario Bros. 3 . They are a type of white spherical ghost with menacing and normally open mouths. They are known for their large tongues and small stubby arms. However, the most distinctive characteristic of the Boos is their shy personality, as they cover their faces when someone looks directly at them, but then uncover and move after the character when their back is turned; this exact behavior is used by Mumbies in the Kirby series.

Shigeru Miyamoto got the idea for Boo from the wife of his coworker and close friend Takashi Tezuka , as she is shy but one day got very angry with him for coming home late from work. [7] [8]

History [ edit ]

Since their debut in Super Mario Bros. 3 , Boos have mainly been identified as an antagonistic enemy species, having their most major role within the Luigi's Mansion series . Sometimes, a Boo has appeared as a playable character, and the Nintendo 64 version of Mario Tennis marks the first time that one appeared as a playable character. Boos have a variety of roles in spinoff series of the Super Mario franchise, such as being an item in the Mario Kart series .

General information [ edit ]

Physical appearance [ edit ].

boo the ghost

Though their specifics change from game to game, Boos are usually bashful, cowardly, spherical ghosts. They have black beady eyes and fangs. Although they are typically white, there are sub-species of the Boo race that appear in different colors, such as pink . From Luigi's Mansion onward, it became common to picture Boos sticking out their tongues. Boos often have wide open grinning mouths with their tongue sticking out. In most games, Boos are unable to change their facial expressions. The only exception is when they are looked at, in which case they bashfully cover their faces. However, the Luigi's Mansion and early Paper Mario games portray Boos as being more expressive than in other games, being able to frown, scowl, or even smirk. Since Super Mario 64 , Boos have been portrayed with a unique, high-pitched laugh. Both this laugh and Bowser 's laugh are derived from the same stock recording of a human man laughing recorded by Charles Martinet ; [9] it was sped up for the Boos and slowed down for Bowser. However, Boos received a new laugh starting in Mario Power Tennis , being more of a haunting laugh than before. Although most species of Boo will cover their faces and become intangible when looked at, they will often sneak behind their victim and strike when their back is turned. Due to their ghostly abilities, Boos are generally invulnerable and cannot be harmed by ordinary means of attack. Despite this, they are not invincible and are especially vulnerable to the light. If they are exposed to a source of light, Boos are usually weakened, and in some cases, they may even be defeated. Usually, they can also have other weaknesses. Because of their intolerance to the light, Boos will often hide if they are trapped in lit rooms. However, King Boo claims that Boos cannot truly be killed. While the ghosts generally appear to be more afraid of their victims than their victim is of them, this is not always the case. Some Boos have absolutely no problem meeting their victim's gaze, and will even try to attack. Boos tend to have a taste for the fine arts, as seen in Paper Mario and Mario Party 4 . In Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon it is shown that Boos will actually save someone if only later to trick them. This is seen when Luigi watches through pipe in the Old Clockworks as a Yellow Toad balances on a ledge. Some Boos appear and watch the Toad before it falls off the ledge, which is later found to be quite a drop, the Boos show a large amount of concern and shock when this happens before diving down for the Toad. The Toad is later found in a painting because of the Boos.

Boos are often characterized by their sub-species despite their similarities in appearance and attack manner. Boo species tend to vary wildly in size, with some such as Boo Buddies being miniature, while others such as the Big Boos boast gigantic size.

In Luigi's Mansion , Professor E. Gadd notes that Boos have mysterious powers that increase when they gather together in large groups. While it is difficult to stop them, they can be weakened if one is able to defeat members of the group. Although in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon this does not seem to affect them or King Boo in any way suggesting that they do not always need to be in groups anymore.

Boos have few predators, their only known threat being a Spike named Tubba Blubba in Paper Mario , when he began devouring Boos. This, however, may have been his revenge for the countless times the ghosts scared him.

Color variations [ edit ]

Boos come in many different colors. The following is a list of all known Boos and the first appearance of the respective Boo.

Tools [ edit ]

  • Boo's Sheet - Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
  • Fright Bomb - Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Boo Bell - Mario Party 2
  • Boo's Crystal Ball - Mario Party 4
  • Boo Biscuit - Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

Habitat [ edit ]

Boos typically make their homes in dark forests, such as the Forever Forest and Boo Woods , and tend to be most commonly found in older buildings such as mansions, castles, and Ghost Houses . Although most of them live in such dwellings, they also seem to enjoy wastelands. One of the only known Boo villages lies in Gusty Gulch .

They are typically found in groups because their fears make them find strength in big numbers.

Allegiance [ edit ]

Though most Boos tend to side with Bowser and King Boo , they seem to, for the most part, actually stand as neutral. For example, Boos are by now a common enemy in most side-scrolling games; however, in the Paper Mario series and now increasingly in the multiplayer games, Boos have been seen to take the side of the Mushroom Kingdom . Lady Bow, in fact, helped Mario save the kingdom in Paper Mario . In another example, the Boos in the Creepy Steeple from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door attack Mario initially, but later in the game Mario is sent a friendly letter from one of them. King Boo, on the other hand, has several times been shown to wish nothing but terrible things for Luigi (but this could be accredited to Luigi being easily scared, making him a prime target for most Boo antics). They also have attacked Bowser in some games, such as the Mario Party series , mainly from Mario Party 5 to Mario Party 8 .

Language [ edit ]

As hinted in the game Super Mario Galaxy , Boos have their own unique language called Booish. It most probably is spoken only by Boos since Mario cannot understand it. However, upon absorbing a Boo Mushroom and turning into Boo Mario , he gains the ability to read it, if not speak it as well.

Paper Mario also features Boos replacing certain words with "Boo", possibly as a part of the Booish language:

I am so bored!! Boo-ored! Boo-st of luck! Hey, what can I Boo for you? It's going to be the most Boo-tiful wedding ever!

Please revise this pattern, it is very difficult to understand the increase and decrease parts.

I’m so sorry to hear that. Could you explain in what way you think those parts are difficult to understand?

I have added a simple how-to on reading my patterns here:

https://www.neacreates.com/about/reading-my-patterns

Awesome pattern! Easy to understand. Thank you!

Thank you! I’m so glad you like it!

Love your patterns thank you

That’s awesome, thank you! 😊

The bottom of my ghost kept bubbling out; any way to fix this? I’m thinking next time I’ll go down a hook size. Otherwise super cute!!

This is the difficult part of Boo I think, you could perhaps stuff it less? You could also try sewing the bottom to the sides of the toy all around, but I haven’t tried this myself so I don’t know how it would turn out. 😉

I agree with Gena, I increases are confusing, especially when you get to end. Calls for inc, then slip stitch but doesn’t tell you if you how to continue after ss. I know how to read patterns & have been doing it for many many years but this one stumbled me. Would help if we new to repeat pattern from beginning increase, but I don’t think so because stitch count would be off I’m glad I’m not the only one confused

That’s too bad. Can you tell me more specifically which part(s) i.e. which rows/rounds and/or instructions you find unclear? Where does it not tell you how to continue after a slip stitch for example? Did you read https://www.neacreates.com/about/reading-my-patterns/ to see if that would make it clearer?

Can i know how much yarn was used for this pattern?

Sorry, I didn’t measure that for this pattern so I don’t actually know. If you use a 100% cotton yarn like Adlibris Cotton 8/9 / Adlibris Cotton Aran I would guess that you’d need less than 75g/113m. Hopefully that helps a bit. 😊

I haven’t crocheted this adorable ghost yet, but, about to start. I’m not great at following patterns, (Sharon Ojala I understand) Reading through your pattern I know I will be able to follow with ease (after reading your instructions for abbr.) I know Gina wrote in 2017 saying she couldn’t understand but, I feel she could, no, Should have asked in a more polite way what she didn’t understand, not Order you to revise the pattern. You are very kindly giving patterns for us, so people like Gena should be more appreciative. THANK YOU, I appreciate your time & creativeness.

Thank you so much for taking the time to tell me this, it means a lot to me! ❤️🙏😊

hi please h3lp I and struggling to do row 29 to 32 do u perhaps have a video tutorial I can follow??

Hi! Sorry for the super late reply, what specific parts of the instructions are you struggling with? I unfortunately do not have any videos for my patterns yet. I would like to do them in the future but I just don’t have the time currently.

I just picked up crocheting again and have always been a beginner, never really finishing a pattern due to difficulties in reading and understanding it.

I just finished this cute little ghost and just need to sew in the arms. I thought your pattern was easy to follow despite others saying it was confusing.

Thank you so much! I’m so certain my daughter will love her new friend Boo.

Sorry for the late reply but thank you! That’s lovely to hear! 😊❤️🙏

I’m confused on Rd30. It does not add up to 64 sts when you complete this round. Help please.

Hi! That’s understandable but as you can see in R31 you work in the back loops of R29 so the scallops in R30 don’t actually change the number of stitches. It wouldn’t be valuable to add the number of stitches created by the scallops since we don’t work into those after they’re created. I hope this makes it clearer, good luck! 😊

I was only able to do row 30 13 times I don’t understand why.

Okay, did you make sure you had 64 stitches at the end of R29? 😊

The Probably-Unheard Story of Boo, the Shy Nintendo Ghost

By John Jannuzzi

This image may contain Advertisement Poster Novel Book and Text

As it's the time of year when we commune with the dead, beg for candy, and assume another's personality for the night with a costume, I found myself thinking of a few of my favorite ghosts. There's Slimer, who is essentially me in ghost form, the Ghost of Christmas Future (but that's the wrong holiday), and then there's Boo, the lovable and giggly spectral blob of Nintendo's Mario franchise. You know him by his trademark cackle, a ghoulish giggle that says, "I'm scary, but also fun!" But, in my appreciation of him, I realized I know nothing of his past. Who is he? Who was he? What's his deal. This is his story (pieced together from the good folks at Nintendo and the InTeRnEt).

Boo's first appearance to the living occurred not until 1990, in Super Mario Bros. 3 on the NES. ( Ed note: still one of the greatest games ever .) Back then, he was just Boo Diddley (it's been reported as a cheeky reference to the singer Bo Diddley), not King Boo, and as yet was not the proprietor of the absurdly difficult and drifty Banshee Boardwalk racetrack.

Though he was meant to be a ghost and adversary to Mario and his friends, Boo would also cower and hide when he was faced with his so-called enemy. It wasn't until Mario turned away that he would make his approach. This actually makes a lot of sense when you consider Boo's Japanese Name, Theresa (yes, really). It comes from the Japanese words meaning "to be shy." According to representatives at Nintendo, the world is unable to confirm if he was sneaking in for an attack or just going to bro it out with a hug. As they put it "The Mushroom Kingdom may never know." Well, at least we can confirm the Mushroom Kingdom is in fact a real place. Always knew it.

As the years went on, Boo Diddley turned out to be more than just a single ghost. He was part of a tribe of the deceased, which became collectively known as Boos—the most common of them being the classic white boo. (Not that they're generic, they're all very special.) Amongst those ranks though, there are outliers, special examples of ghosts that break the mold. There's King Boo—the leader of the pack—who we became aware of in 2001 as the main villain of Luigi's Mansion. You'll know him by his crown. Then there's Boolossus, a colossus of 15 Boos that combine together to form this giant. Frightening! He's the same but different version of Big Boo, who you may remember from Super Mario 64. That dude's just a giant Boo and he's so fun if not evil. And that's just scratching the surface of the upper crust of Boo society.

There's some debate in the Mushroom Kingdom as to what these beings actually are, though. According to a Nintendo wiki, in Super Mario 64 it is hinted that they're the dead residents of the Kingdom itself. However, in future games they're conjured by magic and we also are introduced to other dead characters, yet they resemble their living selves. As of now, there is no official confirmation. We're not sure which we'd prefer in the end. It doesn't sit well that anybody from the Nintendo universe could actually die, so maybe we're chill with them being "ectoplasmic creatures" as the wiki describes them.

This Halloween, as you prepare to make contact with the dead, conjure spirits from the beyond, and try to decode Tinder with a Ouija board, pour one out for Boo. And perhaps you'll hear his giggle in the halls and he'll pay you a visit. He's super shy so let him come to you first.

Profile [ ]

Boos are a type of white, spherical ghost with menacing and normally open mouths. They are known for their large tongues and small "arms" of some sort. However, the most distinctive characteristic of the Boos is their shy personality, where they cover their faces when someone looks directly at them. They will uncover their faces once the subject turns around. It is unknown if Boos are the ghosts of formerly living beings or if they are an actual species, though it is more likely that they are a species. Goombario 's tattle for the Boo Igor in Paper Mario , however, states: "He probably was a merchant before he became a Boo," implying that some current Boos may have once been living beings. It is revealed in Super Mario Galaxy that they speak in a language called "Booish." While they have been enemies for most of their history, some spinoff games feature a Boo as a playable character, and some are even allied to Mario.

After following the cackle of King Boo, Mario arrives in a room with a mirror in it. To defeat King Boo, Mario must view him through the mirror, since King Boo is invisible. Once King Boo is defeated, Luigi is let free. Yoshi cannot defeat them, for ground pounding and sweep kicks have no effect, and if he tries to eat them he will spit them out thereby making Big Boo's Haunt , the only main course that not all four characters can access.

Boos inhabit the Creepy Steeple . 200 Boos are released from a chest after Mario answers it and one of them asks Mario a question about how many Boos just came out. If Mario answers correctly, the Boo rewards him with an Ultra Shroom . Later, the Boo can be seen by himself and asks Mario if he is going to hurt him. If Mario replies he won't, the many Boos soon start to flood in the main hall of the Creepy Steeple. If Mario waits too long in a spot, the Boos will crowd around him and throw him out of the steeple. If Mario swings his Super Hammer three times at them, the Boos will get angry and form into the Atomic Boo . If the Atomic Boo is defeated, then the Boos will no longer surround in the Creepy Steeple (except a few can then be fought as regular enemies). In battle, the Boos mainly attack by scaring at one of Mario's party. The Boos can also make themselves fly higher (preventing Hammer attacks) and invisible (preventing any attacks from hitting at all). In the audience, a Boo may fly out and make either Mario, his partner, or an enemy or boss invisible. Dark Boos also appear in this game.

Super Paper Mario [ ]

There are also unique types of Boos including the Disco Boos , Golden Boo , Crumbled Boo , and Boo Stack . After Mario captures all of the Boos, he returns the Book of Sealing into the basement.

In Luigi's Mansion series [ ]

Luigi's mansion [ ].

Boo Mansions

Boos play a majore role It is revealed that most of the Boos were formed from Boolossus but King Boo got angry after Professor E. Gadd captured him. This led to King Boo to capturing Mario and releasing all of the captured portrait ghosts with the help of Vincent van Gore. There are a total of 50 Boos that must be captured in this game in order for Luigi to gain access to King Boo in the Secret Alter. The Boos in this game doesn't pull against the Poltergust 3000 which means that Luigi must point the Poltergust 3000 at the Boo in order to suck it up. Boos will also tend to head into other rooms even those that haven't been unlocked yet. Boos can be tracked down using the Boo Radar function of the Game Boy Horror and Luigi must check in that certain location to reveal the Boo. After the Boo has been captured, E. Gadd will update the Boo and even save Luigi's current progress for him. The Boo's names in this game are puns of other objects or phrases such as the "Gameboo Advance" being a pun on Game Boy Advance .

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon [ ]

Boo Dark Moon artwork

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon artwork

Boos are much more smarter and tougher. Throughout the game, Luigi uncovers pictures that eventually lead to the Boos once again capturing Mario and using special crystals to power up the ghosts, and making them stronger than ever before. As for combat, the new way to capture Boos is much more complex from the original game. For starters, there is no Boo Radar to get an exact location to where they are and Luigi must search previously explored rooms and areas. Luigi must then search for an invisible object and reveal it using the Dark-Light Device . Luigi must then vacuum up the Spirit Balls to make the Boo appear and attempt to vacuum it up. The Boo will then turn invisible and fly around the room either summoning Spirit Balls to attack Luigi or by simply ramming into him. Luigi must reveal the Boo using the Dark-Light Device and vacuum at the Boo's tongue to send it flying across the room losing money and hp as it bounces around. After the Boo's HP has reached zero, Luigi must quickly vacuum it up into the Poltergust 5000 before it regains itself. Like with Luigi's Mansion , the Boo's names are puns of objects and phrases but they do not save the current game process.

Game data [ ]

Timeline [ ], behind the scenes [ ], etymology [ ].

The word "boo" is often used as an unexpected surprise. It might also be derived from peek-a-boo, being behind someone and shout the phrase behind their backs. Another way it is used is to express dislike, often at a comedic or musical act.

  • There is an enemy called a Mumbies in the Kirby franchise that behaves similarly. They are dormant when Kirby has his eyes pointed in their direction (45 degrees of error maximum). However, they enter their active form and chase him when the pink puff has his back turned.
  • The BOO Unit from Star Fox Guard bears a slight resemblance to a Boo.

History [ ]

Boo hanafuda

Boo hiding his face.

Super Mario series [ ]

Super mario bros. 3 [ ].

Boos first appear in Super Mario Bros. 3 . Here, they are referred to as "Boo" Diddlys, a pun off the late rock star Bo Diddley . However, future games refer to them only as Boos. They make their first appearance in the Desert Land fortress. The Boo shields its face if Mario or Luigi look at it, but it starts to chase Mario or Luigi, faster than in succeeding games, if they look away. Boos are unable to be defeated unless the two are equipped with a Hammer Suit , Koopa shell , or Starman . The game also has Stretches, which are Boos with very long bodies that live in the Fortresses throughout the Mushroom World . In the original, depending on the level's palette, Boos have either a dark blue or dark red outline.

Super Mario World [ ]

In Super Mario World , Boos are called "Boo Buddies," and they reside in the many Ghost Houses in the game. These Boos retain their usual pattern of attack from Super Mario Bros. 3 and sometimes make faces at Mario or Luigi. However, they are somewhat slower and less accurate than in Super Mario Bros. 3 . This game also introduces many new Boo variations, such as the Boo Block, Boo Buddy Snake, Boo Buddy Swarm, Circling Boo Buddies, Eeries, and Disappearing Boo Buddies. It also introduces a giant version of the Boo, the Big Boo . One Ghost House contains a secret boss, a special Big Boo. The only way to defeat a Boo is with Super Stars or with Grab Blocks when it is visible. Unlike the later games, the Boos in this game seem to have multiple tails. The groups of Boos also have different facial expressions, while individual Boos change theirs for a brief second if left alone for a while.

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins [ ]

Boos appear in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins . These Boos are relatively unchanged from the previous Boos from Super Mario Bros. 3 . Boos in this game are found in the Pumpkin Zone. A thrown Green Shell can defeat it. A variant named Terekuribō, which resemble ghostly Goombas , also appears in this game.

Super Mario 64 / Super Mario 64 DS [ ]

Boos make a starring appearance in the course Big Boo's Haunt in Super Mario 64 . A large group of Boos can be found in the castle gardens (eight of which are holding Red Coins in the DS version). After collecting twelve Power Stars , Mario is able to enter Big Boo's Haunt by going into the little cage that a certain Boo drops; this Boo will be somewhat bigger than the others. He also battles Big Boo three times here. Additionally, when Mario looks at the Boos, they attempt to hide by becoming partially transparent, but if Mario is not looking at them, they chase him. If they hit him, he loses two wedges of health. In the translucent Boo, the player can see a Coin or a Blue Coin . To defeat them, a punch or kick from behind or the side is needed. They can also be defeated with a ground-pound while he is not looking at them. When defeated, they give a Blue Coin, but the ones in the castle gardens give a normal Coin instead. When defeated in the first mission, Go on a Ghost Hunt , the Boos will say, " Ghosts... ...don't... ...DIE! Heh, heh, heh! Can you get out of here... ...alive? " when defeated. In addition, a Boo will appear in the hallway of Peach's Castle after twelve Stars are collected. Interestingly, their laugh is actually Bowser 's laugh sped up.

In Super Mario 64 DS , eight Stars are needed to spawn a small Boo in the hallway, who holds a Red Coin. After fifteen Stars are collected, the small Boo is replaced by a Big Boo, which then allows Mario to enter Big Boo's Haunt. Sometimes, if the player is not Luigi, one particular Boo will wear a Luigi Cap. In the haunt, Mario can find a Luigi painting, which will take him to the Big Boo Battle level on the balcony. After defeating King Boo within, Mario gains the key to the room in which Luigi is imprisoned and proceeds to free him. In the English version of the game, King Boo is incorrectly referred to as "Big Boo." Yoshi cannot defeat Boos in this game. Ground-pounding and other attacks yield no results, and eating them simply causes Yoshi to spit them back out. Fortunately, Mario, Luigi, and Wario can hit Boos with ground-pounds.

Super Mario Bros. Deluxe [ ]

While Boos do not appear in the original Super Mario Bros. , Boos appear in Super Mario Bros. Deluxe as the main enemy in the "You VS. Boo" mode. The goal is to reach the flagpole before the Boo. After defeating Boo within a certain time frame, it flies away, and a Green Boo replaces it. After that Boo is defeated, a Red Boo takes its place, and finally, a Black Boo with a yellow outline appears. Each new Boo gets progressively faster than the one before it, meaning the plain White Boo is the slowest, while the Black Boo is the fastest and hardest to defeat.

Super Mario Sunshine [ ]

Boos return in Super Mario Sunshine , terrorizing the residents of Hotel Delfino. In this game, they move around in slow, swooping motions and do not care if Mario looks at them. They tend to go in Mario's general direction while turning invisible (aside from some distortion), but spraying them with F.L.U.D.D. causes them to slowly become visible again. These Boos can be defeated by being jumped on, making Super Mario Sunshine the only game outside of the Mario RPGs where jumping can defeat them. Boos in this game can also be eaten by Yoshi. They also disguise themselves as Yellow Coins and Blue Coins , which unlike the real ones do not spin. Boos can also disguise themselves as Shadow Mario while the real Shadow Mario runs from Mario, though they appear lighter than Shadow Mario, lack the Magic Paintbrush , and do not have the theme music. When Mario approaches a disguised Boo, it laughs and bumps into him, though if it is sprayed beforehand it will start behaving like the other Boos. Like the other enemies, Boo's design is changed for this game, with drooping eyelids, blue circles surrounding their black pupils, and long, coiled tails. This is due to the fact that they are made from graffiti.

The Boos in this game are led by King Boo. Mario finds him in the basement of the hotel's Casino, and he has to battle him. He can defeat him by throwing a Chili Pepper at him and then throwing another piece of fruit at him. Mario has to do this three times before King Boo is defeated. Pink Boos also appear and can be turned into a platform if sprayed by F.L.U.D.D. Also appearing inside the hotel are a new species, known as Sleepy Boos. These Boos mostly appear to block passages. F.L.U.D.D.'s water does not affect them; they can be removed only by being eaten by Yoshi.

New Super Mario Bros. [ ]

Boos also appear in New Super Mario Bros. . They are found mainly in Ghost Houses scattered throughout the game, as well as World 8-1. They appear like they usually do, shy, and they act the same as in Super Mario Bros. 3 . They can only be defeated with a Shell , a Starman , a Mega Mushroom , or a Blue Shell . The game also introduces the Balloon Boo , which are normal Boos who can suck up air, and become much bigger. Broozer , the boxing ghost, first appears in this game as well. An icon of 2 Boos covers the progress map in Ghost Houses.

Super Mario Galaxy [ ]

Boos make an appearance in Super Mario Galaxy and can be found in the Ghostly Galaxy , the Bigmouth Galaxy , the Deep Dark Galaxy , and the Sand Spiral Galaxy . Boos act the same way that they did in the previous games, such as hiding by turning transparent when Mario looks at them and then following Mario when he looks away. Boos can be defeated only when they are brought under a ray of light (including the Toad Brigade captain's helmet and the light emitted from Shells while in the water) or by Rainbow Mario touching them. The spin attack, however, can throw a Boo around Mario, knocking it off course temporarily or into a light. Boos can also be found underwater in the Bigmouth Galaxy where they attack just by swimming back and forth, similar to Cheep Cheeps . In Deep Dark Galaxy , in the secret mission, there is a large Boo that has a Power Star in it.

Boo Mario also appears in this game. Mario has the same look as the other Boos, but retains his face when in his Boo form. He also wears his trademark Cap on his head. If a Boo spots Mario while he is a Boo, it develops an attraction for him and follows him. If a Boo hits Mario, Mario loses the power-up, but does not lose any health.

An individual Boo named Spooky Speedster is found in two areas of the game. Mario must race him twice to win a Power Star . He is raced once in the Ghostly Galaxy and once again in the Boo's Boneyard Galaxy . This game also introduces a new kind of Boo, called the Bomb Boo ; it is similar to a normal Boo, but is black with yellow eyes and can be grabbed by its tongue if Mario uses his spin attack on it.

Captain Toad also indirectly suggests that Boos eat people, as he worried that Luigi might have been eaten by ghosts.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii [ ]

Boos reappear in New Super Mario Bros. Wii in Ghost Houses throughout the game. They behave the same way as they did in New Super Mario Bros and they are invincible, unless the player has a Star power-up. Big Boos also reappear along with Broozers . Circling Boo Buddies can also be found in a small amount of Ghost Houses in the game. Despite their concept art, they appear with a blue glow as opposed to plain white in this game, giving off a more spectral appearance. In the level selection screen, a single Boo will be watching Mario, and will taunt Mario as he enters. If Mario gets tossed out, the Boo will laugh. However, once the level is beaten, the Boo will cover its face for the rest of the game.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 [ ]

Boos reappear in the game Super Mario Galaxy 2 . They behave the same way they did in its predecessor. They are found in haunted levels such as Haunty Halls Galaxy and Boo Moon Galaxy . The underwater Boos from the predecessor also appear in this game, in the Battle Belt Galaxy and Slimy Spring Galaxy . Bomb Boos and Mega Boos also reappear. A variant named Octoboo , which resemble ghostly Octoombas , also appears in this game.

Super Mario 3D Land [ ]

Boos later appear in Super Mario 3D Land . In the game, they retain their normal battle strategy, which is chasing Mario when he looks away while sticking its tongue out. Boos in this game also momentarily disappear when hit with Fire Mario 's fireballs and Tanooki Mario 's tail whips. Boos also laugh in their original phonic from Super Mario 64 . Some Boos have striped tails ; these are called Tail Boos. They act like normal Boos, but when they stop moving when Mario looks at them, they will swing their tails once, which can damage Mario. Big Boos also appear during the game. Another species of Boo is also introduced, called Peepas. They do not act like normal Boos, instead moving around a set position, and do not halt when Mario looks at them, as in Super Mario Galaxy .

New Super Mario Bros. 2 [ ]

Boos, along with Big Boos , return in New Super Mario Bros. 2 , with the same appearance and behavior as in New Super Mario Bros. Wii , except they turn completely red when Mario faces them. They can be found in Ghost Houses along with other ghost enemies such as Peepas and the new Boohemoth. All of these varieties, save for Boohemoth, can be defeated with a Star or Gold Flower . Boos can also be turned Gold Boos with a Gold Ring. When gold, Boos float away from Mario, leaving a trail of Coins behind them.

There are also Boos that push walls in a Ghost House , namely World 4's Ghost House. Here they push the wall either left or right and they do not stop when Mario looks at them.

New Super Mario Bros. U [ ]

Boos, Big Boos , and Circling Boo Buddies appear in the Wii U title New Super Mario Bros. U . Their behavior is the same as that of past installments. Boos also have their own Enemy Course in the haunted area of the Soda Jungle, where a group of Boos appear in an area with various Donut Lifts , and defeating them must occupy the Starman located inside a Flying ? Block. They can also be defeated with a Baby Yoshi .

Super Mario 3D World [ ]

Boos appear in Super Mario 3D World , along with Peepas and Big Boos. They retain the same strategy from Super Mario 3D Land and utter the same laugh from Super Mario 64 . They appear to be a bit more transparent than in the previous mainstream Mario games and give out a blueish glow like in the New Super Mario Bros. games, as well as a reddish glow and even steam when Mario faces them.

Super Mario Maker / Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS [ ]

Boos reappear in Super Mario Maker and Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS as enemies. They function the same as the previous games. In the Course Maker, they can be placed as enemies, and can be shaken to turn into Boo Buddies. They can also be dragged onto a platform, turning them into Stretches. Like many enemies, they can be enlarged by a Super Mushroom and be given wings, which the former will turn it into a Big Boo, and the latter will make them move much faster. They can be placed in Warp Pipes , Bill Blasters , Blocks , and tracks. In addition, adding Wings to a Boo Buddy will make the Boo Buddy move in and out.

Super Mario Run [ ]

Boos appear in Super Mario Run in Ghost House levels. When Mario looks at them, they cover their eyes, and also float up and down. They attack Mario by quickly following behind him. Mario can defeat them by backflipping over them. In some levels, pressing the pink P-Switch defeats Boos on-screen. They can drop Keys , Coins , or Color Coins after they are defeated, and the object they contain inside of them can slightly be seen through them before they are defeated. In Dark and Stormy, Boos are defeated when a lightning strike occurs. Stretches also appear in the game.

Super Mario Odyssey [ ]

Boos do not appear physically in Super Mario Odyssey , making this game the first Super Mario game to not contain Boos since Super Mario Land . However, Peach wears a Boo mask on the side of her head when she visits Bowser's Kingdom, a common way to wear masks of yōkai in festivals in Japan.

DIC cartoons [ ]

The adventures of super mario bros. 3 [ ].

Boos make infrequent appearances in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 television series, which depicts them as having a somewhat menacing appearance. Like in the game the show is based on, Boos work for Bowser and often aid him in causing trouble. An example of this is seen in the episode Reign Storm , in which Bowser has several Boos terrorize the new Mushroom Shopping Mall. In this episode, they are referred to as "Boo Diddlys."

Super Mario World television series [ ]

Yoshi sees a Boo

Yoshi encounters a Boo in the Super Mario World cartoon.

In Super Mario World , Boos, who are completely redesigned, appear in the episodes Ghosts 'R' Us , in which a gang of Boos, as well as a Big Boo, appears to chase Yoshi through Wizenheimer's Haunted House ; The Night Before Cave Christmas , in which they scare Yoshi away; and The Yoshi Shuffle , in which several Boos appear in the audience during the episode. They are never referred to by name, instead simply being referred to as "ghosts."

Nintendo Adventure Books [ ]

In Koopa Capers , a Boo confronts Luigi if he decides to simply look through a keyhole in a fortress door, instead of barging through it. If Luigi decides to run away from it immediately, he will successfully escape, but if he decides to stand his ground, the Boo will chase him onto some floating blocks after he dodges its attack. Making a beeline for the door after mounting the blocks will allow the Boo to catch Luigi, but doing evasive techniques will allow him to escape it. When he begins his descent into the Magma Pit, Luigi will hear a Boo behind him, which causes him to pick up the pace, and escape it.

Illustrations of a Boo are used in puzzles in Dinosaur Dilemma and Flown the Koopa , though none appear in the actual stories.

Super Mario World: Mario to Yoshi no Bōken Land [ ]

In the interactive OVA Super Mario World: Mario to Yoshi no Bōken Land , Boos appear in a Ghost House that Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi are passing through. A Boo starts following Luigi, who is in the back, but every time he turns around, it disappears. Finally, he quickly does a double take, and turns just it time to see it re-materialize. He panics and Boos start swarming the group. Mario grabs a candle and lights it, which repels the Boos, and one drops a key they need to progress.

Yoshi series [ ]

Boo Buddies make an appearance as one of the six falling objects in Yoshi . Boo Buddy's sprite in this game is similar to its sprite from Super Mario World .

Yoshi's Cookie [ ]

In Yoshi's Cookie , Boos return as enemies to Yoshi. Though in this game, they are depicted as one of Yoshi's "opponents". They are among the easy opponents, the others being Goomba , Cheep Cheep , Paratroopa , and Spiny . Eeries also appear, as well as the similarly-named Fishing Boos.

Yoshi's Safari [ ]

Boos [1] (misnamed "Big Boo" in the English manual [2] ) appear as enemies in Yoshi's Safari . Their first and only appearance throughout the game is in Ghost Mansion, a level in the Dark Realm. Unlike most enemies in the game that can be shot with the Super Scope to be defeated, shooting a Boo stops it in its tracks. While stunned, Yoshi can then run into it to defeat it. Defeating a Boo adds 500 points to the player's score (1,000 in Hard Mode), the highest amount of points earned from regular enemies. A Big Boo serves as the boss for the level.

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island [ ]

Boos also appear in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its remake Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 , where they are depicted with happy faces. They are first seen in World 2, which features numerous ghastly creatures. The only way to defeat Boos is by looking away and then make an egg bounce off a wall after it is thrown, hitting the ghost in the face. Kamek the Magikoopa turns one Big Boo into Bigger Boo , which serves as a mini boss and grows in size every time he is hit by an egg. The main boss of World 2 is also a Boo-like creature, Roger the Potted Ghost , who was a normal flower pot until Kamek made him giant and transformed it into a living creature. The game also features the Boo Balloon, who are balloons made to look like Boos that yield items when they pop, as well as Boo Man Bluff, a blindfolded Boo that relies on the player's noise.

Yoshi's Story [ ]

Boos appear in Yoshi's Story in Stage 6-3: Ghost Castle. They do not act differently, although they are slightly bigger. The Ghost Castle is also home to other Boo species: namely, the Boo Block, Blindfold Boo, and Baby Boos. Another variant, the Jelly Ghost, inhabits the jelly of Stage 2-3: Jelly Pipe and Stage 2-4: Torrential Maze. The Big & Little Boo family also appear in Jelly Pipe.

The normal Boo [3] is mistakenly called a Big Boo [4] in the Nintendo Power guide.

Yoshi Topsy-Turvy [ ]

Boos appear again in Yoshi Topsy-Turvy . In this game, they only appear in four missions. They follow the same tactics as normal, and are given their laugh from preceding releases.

Yoshi's Island DS [ ]

Yoshi comes into contact with Boos, again, in Yoshi's Island DS . Here, they are commonly found in castles, along with other ghastly creatures. Again, they work for Kamek. They attack the same as all Boos before, but like in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island , they can only be defeated if Yoshi looks away. So Yoshi must bounce an egg off of the wall into their face to defeat them. A Boo-like mid-boss, named Hector the Reflector appears as well, Hector the Reflector is an Invisighoul , another species of Boo. The Boos' laughs are used in many games before. It is used for the boss Six-Face Sal , and even Baby Bowser . Their artwork depicts them like in the main series, but the in-game sprites are based on their Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island sprites.

Yoshi's New Island [ ]

Boos return in Yoshi's New Island , and act the same way as in past games. They first appear in World 2-4: Beware the Boo Brigade. Big Boos also appear.

Mario Kart series [ ]

Super mario kart [ ].

Boos made their first appearance in the Mario Kart series , in Super Mario Kart . Though not as obstacles, they only appear in the three Ghost Valley courses . In each race, they just laugh when the player drives by. They also appear as items, under the name "Ghosts" . When the player uses the item, they will become transparent temporarily, while the "Ghost" steals the opposing player's item, if available. This item is only obtainable in "2 Player" mode.

Mario Kart 64 [ ]

Boos are used as an item, in Mario Kart 64 . When activated, the Boo selects a racer with the best item in reach, and steals the item and gives it to the player that released it. At the same time, the player obtains total invisibility and invincibility for a short period of time. While invisible, the player can pass the items, the course obstacles and the other racers more easily by simply going through them. If no other players have any items, the Boo will return empty-handed. Boos also appear in Banshee Boardwalk and one appears in neon lights in Rainbow Road , both as background elements.

Mario Kart: Super Circuit [ ]

Boos appear as items again in Mario Kart: Super Circuit . When activated, they can also slow down the leading racer. Starting in this game, if a CPU racer uses a Boo, it can also steal items from the player and make the player lose Coins.

Boos also appear in two new courses, Boo Lake and Broken Pier . At Boo Lake, Boos hold candles which guide the player through the track. On Broken Pier, they attack the players and take their Coins.

Mario Kart: Double Dash!! [ ]

In Mario Kart: Double Dash!! , Boos, as well as the Boolossus' gold frame portrait, appear in the Luigi's Mansion battle course. Also, King Boo makes his Mario Kart debut as a playable character.

Mario Kart Arcade GP [ ]

Boos appear as items in the arcade game, Mario Kart Arcade GP . A Boo appears as a basic item. It causes whoever is hit by it to slow down temporarily. There is also a new item called the Triple Boo .

Mario Kart DS [ ]

In Mario Kart DS , Boos reappear as items. The only differences are, they do not slow down the leading racer, and they no longer steal the best item in reach. Instead, they just steal the nearest racer's item. Also, using the Boo won't affect off-road racing, so various shortcuts can be made. Some pictures of Boos from the game, Luigi's Mansion , appear in the Luigi's Mansion race course. Banshee Boardwalk reappears as a race, along with the Boos. They do not do anything that affects the racer; they just laugh when a racer drives by.

Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 [ ]

Boos reappear in the arcade game, Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 . Like what they do in Mario Kart Arcade GP , they slow down the leading racer. Though, the Triple Boos do not appear in this game, even though it appears in the predecessor.

Mario Kart Wii [ ]

Boos do not appear as items in Mario Kart Wii , but King Boo appears as a playable character. However, Boos do appear in a returning course, Ghost Valley 2. Like their original appearance in the track, Boos only laugh when racers drive by, but they eventually disappear. Boo also makes a cameo in Bowser's Castle. At the end of the track Boo's Mario Party 7 artwork can be seen along with Dry Bones' artwork.

Mario Kart 7 [ ]

In Mario Kart 7 , Boos appear in the returning track, Luigi's Mansion, in place of the portrait ghosts. They will pop out of their paintings when the drivers race by them. They also appear as spectators on Toad Circuit .

Mario Kart Arcade GP DX [ ]

In Mario Kart Arcade GP DX , Boos return from Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 as items.

Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe [ ]

In Mario Kart 8 , Boos appear as obstacles on Twisted Mansion . If aimed correctly, the players can land on the Boos floating around near the gliding section. They also possess Hammer Knights near the end of the track.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe , King Boo is again a playable character, and Boos can also be seen floating around on GCN Luigi's Mansion .

Boos also appear as items again, acting like they do in Mario Kart DS , though the mechanics are slightly different. Unlike in that game, Boo users are still slowed down by off-road surfaces. Boos immediately steal an item from a random racer in front of the user (making their attack much more difficult to dodge), and invincible or other invisible players are not immune; the Boo will bring back a Mushroom if there is nothing to steal. The Boo is visible, both when it steals an item and when it gives the stolen item to the user. It takes a couple more seconds to deliver the item back to the player, however. Only one Boo can be in play at a time; once it brings back an item, another can appear in item boxes again, even while another player is still invisible. Lastly, due to the way deployed items work, a Boo is able to steal any timed or multiple usage item, except for a Crazy Eight, or a Potted Piranha Plant and Bullet Bill already in use. Doing so will always give the user a fresh version of the item. [5]

Mario Kart Tour [ ]

Boos reappear in Mario Kart Tour in the courses DS Luigi's Mansion and SNES Ghost Valley, where they act the same as they did on those courses in the previous games. In both courses, wooden cutouts of Boos appear.

Super Mario Adventures [ ]

In Super Mario Adventures , a horde of Boos appear to attack Mario and Luigi when they are tricked into a haunted house by Bowser and the Koopalings. Mario and Luigi become trapped by the Boos and a Big Boo, who are held at bay by the Bros staring at them in the face. Eventually, nearing exhaustion, Mario races to a nearby room, dragging Luigi while being chased by the Boos. Upon barging into this room, the Boos and Big Boo find Mario dressed as a psychiatrist with Luigi as his nurse. After some talking, Mario and Luigi manage to reform the Boos and the Big Boo, while learning they were bullied in their youth (which is why they act so nasty to everyone). These Boos and their Big Boo leader were last seen happily waving goodbye to Mario, Luigi and Yoshi as they left the haunted house, which the Boos led them out of.

Boos also make an appearance at Peach's wedding.

Mario Bros. [ ]

Boos make an appearance in the Super Mario All-Stars remake of Mario Bros. , where they replace the green Fireballs .

Hotel Mario [ ]

Boos also appear in the game Hotel Mario under the name Boo Buddies [6] . There are two types of Boos in this game. One type stays visible and does not hurt Mario until transparency is achieved, at which they can harm the heroic plumber. The other type of Boo uses the traditional attack method and turns invisible when looked at, and attacks Mario when his back is turned.

At first, Boos were being eaten by Tubba Blubba. Some Boos tried attacking the monster to save their friends, but they failed because of Tubba Blubba's "Invincibility". Seeking help from Mario, they captured Skolar , the Star Spirit Mario was trying to save in order to have Mario help them.

In the game, when Mario arrives at Boo's Mansion, Bootler tells him to get to the third floor. Boos have prepared some puzzle for him under the order of Lady Bow to test him. One puzzle is for Boos to form a rotary circle, throw an item several times and ask Mario to guess who is holding the item. The first time he opens a door a big Boo appears on the screen. In the eastern room of the second floor Boos holding a Record play this trick. In the western room of the second floor a Boo is guarding a chest box with a Weight in it. Mario plays the Record to lure the Boo away, and uses the Weight on the droplight of the mansion to open the western door on the first floor. Boos in the basement hide in a big chest box in the basement. When Mario opens the chest box, they play the puzzle with Super Boots. After Mario gets them, he is able to get Boo's Portrait with which he is able to get to the third floor.

He will let Mario through one door (Blocking him from using any other doors), where he finds a chest. When he opens it, 200 Boos fly out. The last Boo asks Mario " How many Boos came out of that chest? " If Mario answers correctly the Boo will give him an Ultra Shroom. If Mario is wrong the Boo will give him one Coin. Upon returning the main room, the first Boo is still there. He asks if Mario is going to be mean to him. If Mario answers "No", a bunch of Boos (The same ones from the treasure chest) will start flying around the main room, attempting to swarm Mario. If successful, they will throw Mario out of the Steeple, exactly like the Sentinels in Tubba Blubba's Castle. If Mario Spin Attacks them several times, they merge into the Atomic Boo . Once the Atomic Boo is defeated, Mario can fight Boos in other parts of the Steeple. Even before defeating the Atomic Boo, Boos could still be found, but only when accompanying Swoopers .

This game has the player shooting Boos, including Dark Boos and occasionally Atomic Boos, to score points.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star [ ]

Boos reappear in the Nintendo 3DS title, Paper Mario: Sticker Star , using their modern appearance from Mario Party 4 and onward. They only appear in World 4-3: The Enigmansion. Mario must use the Book of Sealing, given by the Mansion Steward , to seal away every Boo that has escaped. In battle, Boos can make themselves disappear and can slap Mario or they can go up to Mario and scare him by making a scary face. They are able to make Mario dizzy in this game with their scare attack preventing him from using any of his defensive/dodging stickers. The attack is determined by the sound the Boo makes when it disappears.

Among the normal Boos, there is one golden Boo that drops several Coins after Mario defeats it, which can be found in the safe. This Boo attacks exactly like the normal ones. Another notable Boo is one that is crumpled, which is found in a trash can. In battle, it only has 1 HP and cannot attack. Additionally, a group of eighty-two Boos called a Boo Stack also appears. Once all the Boos get returned to the book and it is placed in its rightful spot, Kamek appears and turns all the captured Boos into the mini boss, Big Boo .

Luigi's Mansion series [ ]

Luigi's mansion [ ].

In Luigi's Mansion , Boos are the main antagonists. This game also introduces the Boo leader, King Boo. King Boo sends a letter to Luigi, stating that he had won a mansion in a contest. However, Luigi does not enter any contest, but pays no attention, and heads off. Mario goes on ahead, but gets captured by the King of the Boos, King Boo. Luigi has to rescue him from the Boos, using E. Gadd 's Poltergust 3000 . Luigi manages to find his brother, stuck in a painting. He ends up having to battle King Boo in order to rescue Mario. King Boo sends them to the roof of the mansion, and uses a Bowser suit to battle him. However, the suit's head could come off once a spikeball was thrown at him, and King Boo would float out, leaving him open for Luigi's Poltergust 3000. After taking away all of his 500 HP, King Boo is turned into a painting, and Mario is restored back to his normal self. However, King Boo manages to escape by unknown means and reappears in several future Mario games.

There are 50 Boos (51 including King Boo) which Luigi must suck up in the Poltergust 3000. Of these, 15 of them make up the portrait ghost Boolossus , with King Boo as the final Boo. Unlike the other ghosts in the game, Boos will appear in a room, even when the lights are on. When Luigi attacks them, they usually run away, but occasionally twirl into him to cause damage. All of the 36 Boos, excluding King Boo and counting Boolossus as one Boo, have puns in their names.

The Boos in Luigi's Mansion seem to be the reverse of the Boos in the Super Mario series: while the Boos in the Super Mario series sneak up on Luigi when he's not looking and then disappear/hide when he looks at them, the Boos in Luigi's Mansion (excluding King Boo and Boolossus) hide when Luigi's not looking at them and then they face Luigi when he finds them. One of the Boos, Peekaboo, references the fact that Boos are notorious for hiding.

All of the regular missions in the game have a Boo in an object that is invisible, and Luigi must find it by revealing the invisible object with the Dark-Light function of the Poltergust 5000 ; the Boo appears after the revealed Spirit Balls have been vacuumed up. However, not all Boos are hidden in invisible objects.

To capture a Boo, Luigi must expose it with the Dark-Light, vacuum and pull on the Boo's tongue, and release it with the A Button, damaging the Boo as it bounces around the room. When it reaches 0 HP, the Boo can be sucked up; it sticks onto the nozzle, and Luigi presses the Poltergust 5000 against the ground to shove it inside. When Luigi returns to the Bunker after completing a mission, any captured Boos are sent to the Boo Canister in the Vault. After all Boos in a mansion have been captured, a bonus mission is unlocked for the corresponding mansion. There are a total of 32 Boos, 33 if counting King Boo, 10 of which merge into the Big Boo fought in the Treacherous Mansion .

Luigi's Mansion 3 [ ]

Boos return in Luigi's Mansion 3 . Like in the previous entries, they have "Boo"-inspired names, and King Boo returns as the main antagonist.

There is one Boo found on each floor, which appears after Luigi has obtained that floor's elevator button. The exact location of each Boo is randomised. To help find a Boo, Gooigi will begin to vibrate, corresponding with the player's controller, when next to the room with the Boo in it. Once Luigi enters the room with the Boo, the music will change and he must uncover the object with the strongest vibrations, which causes the Boo to appear and seal all exits. If a wrong object is uncovered, the Boo will flee to a different room. To capture the Boo, Luigi must expose it with the Dark-Light device, then pull on its tongue and slam it repeatedly. All Boos have 20 HP.

They cover their faces, but when they start to attack, the Boo would take one of its hands off one of its eyes, showing who it is about to attack. If it shows its right eye, it will attack Mario, but if it shows its left eye, it is attacking Luigi. Then it would appear from behind, and charge towards one of the Mario Bros.. However, this could easily be countered with a jump. If the attack was not countered then the boo would steal an item which could only be recovered by defeating the boo. After a turn for each brother, the boo would Flee with the item. They also appear during the battle with Sunnycide .

Boos make a reappearance in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story . They appear in Bowser's Castle , where they have been brainwashed by Fawful along with the rest of Bowser's minions once he took over the castle. When Bowser gets to have a feast as a reward for beating Midbus at the Fawful Theater show, three Boos serve him food cooked by Fawful himself. However, Bowser is tricked into eating too much food, and ends up getting fat, which results in him getting stuck in the floor due to his weight. Boos reappear later in the game to help many of the brainwashed minions of Bowser push the Fawful statue against him. In addition, a Boo appears whenever Bowser gets a level up. The Boo (just like the Fishin' Lakitu in Mario's or Luigi's level up screen) holds the circle for getting a bonus upgrade for the stat of the players choice.

An odd thing shown in the game is a Boo and Koopa Troopa in love with each other in Bowser's Castle. They not only love each other, but also love Fawful, possibly due to the brainwashing that was put on the minions.

Yikk , a ghost who appears in the same game at the Tower of Yikk , explains that he researches Boos. He even built a machine to visualize Boo transparency waves before he passed away.

During the fight with Bowser Memory ML, Bowser Memory L has an attack that involves a square shaped, pixelated version of a Boo appearing on his tail and chasing him around. The Boo can be jumped on by either Mario or Luigi to stop the attack prematurely, at which point Bowser Memory L walks back to his spot.

General information [ ]

Appearance [ ].

Though their specifics change from game to game, Boos are usually bashful, cowardly, spherical ghosts. They have black beady eyes and fangs. Although they are typically white, there are sub-species of the Boo race which appear in different colors, such as pink . From Luigi's Mansion onward, it became common to picture Boos sticking out their tongues. In most games, Boos are unable to change their facial expressions, often having wide, open grins on their faces, the only exception being when they are looked at, in which they bashfully cover their faces. However, the Luigi's Mansion and early Paper Mario games portray Boos as being more expressive than in other games, being able to frown, scowl, or even smirk. Since Super Mario 64 , Boos have been portrayed with a unique, high-pitched laugh. This laugh is the same as Bowser's, sped up several times [9] . However, Boos got a new laugh starting in Mario Power Tennis provided by Sanae Suzaki being more of a haunting laugh than before. Although most species of Boo will cover their faces and become intangible when looked at, they will often sneak behind their victim and strike when their back is turned. Due to their ghostly abilities, Boos are generally invulnerable and cannot be harmed by ordinary means of attack. Despite this, they are not invincible and are especially vulnerable to the light. If they are exposed to a source of light, Boos are usually weakened, and in some cases they may even be defeated. Usually, they can also have other weaknesses. Because of their intolerance to the light, Boos will often hide if they are trapped in lit rooms. However, King Boo claims that Boos cannot truly be killed. While the ghosts generally appear to be more afraid of their victims than their victim is of them, this is not always the case. Some Boos have absolutely no problem meeting their victim's gaze, and will even try to attack. Boos tend to have a taste for the fine arts, as seen in Paper Mario and Mario Party 4 . In Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon it is shown that Boos will actually save someone if only later to trick them. This is seen when Luigi watches through pipe in the Old Clockworks as a Yellow Toad balances on a ledge. Some Boos appear and watch the Toad before it falls off the ledge, which is later found to be quite a drop, the Boos show a large amount of concern and shock when this happens before diving down for the Toad. The Toad though is later found in a painting because of the Boos.

Boos are often characterized by their sub-species despite their similarities in appearance and attack manner. Boo species tend to wildly differ in size, with some such as Boo Buddies being miniature, while others such as the Big Boos boast gigantic size.

In Luigi's Mansion , Professor E. Gadd notes that Boos have mysterious powers that increase when they gather together in large groups. While it is difficult to stop them, they can be weakened if one is able to defeat members of the group. Although in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon this does not seem to affect them or King Boo in any way suggesting that they do not always need to be in groups anymore.

Boos have few predators, their only known threat being a Spike named Tubba Blubba. This is first seen in Paper Mario , when he began devouring Boos; this, however, may have been his revenge for the countless times the ghosts scared him.

  • Fright Bomb - Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

  • Boo's Crystal Ball - Mario Party 4
  • Boo Biscuit - Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

Habitat [ ]

Boos typically make their homes in dark forests, such as the Forever Forest and Boo Woods , and tend to be most commonly found in older buildings such as mansions, castles, and Ghost Houses. Although most of them live in such dwellings, they also seem to enjoy wastelands. One of the only known Boo villages lies in Gusty Gulch. They are typically found in groups because their fears make them find strength in big numbers.

Allegiance [ ]

Though most Boos tend to side with Bowser and King Boo, they seem to, for the most part, actually stand as neutral. For example, Boos are by now a common enemy in most side-scrolling games; however, in the Paper Mario series and now increasingly in the multiplayer games, Boos have been seen to take the side of the Mushroom Kingdom . Lady Bow, in fact, helped Mario save the kingdom in Paper Mario . In another example, the Boos in the Creepy Steeple from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door attack Mario initially, but later in the game Mario is sent a friendly letter from one of them. King Boo, on the other hand, has several times been shown to wish nothing but terrible things for Luigi (but this could be accredited to Luigi being easily scared, making him a prime target for most Boo antics). They also have attacked Bowser in some games, such as the Mario Party series, mainly from Mario Party 5 to Mario Party 8 .

Language [ ]

As hinted in the game Super Mario Galaxy , Boos have their own unique language called Booish. It most probably is spoken only by Boos since Mario cannot understand it. However, upon absorbing a Boo Mushroom and turning into Boo Mario , he gains the ability to read it, if not speak it as well.

Paper Mario also features Boos replacing certain words with "Boo", possibly as a part of the Booish language:

I am so bored!! Boo-ored! Boo-st of luck! Hey, what can I Boo for you? It's going to be the most Boo-tiful wedding ever!

Mario franchise strategy guide/Enemies/Boo

Boo ( テレサ , Teresa ) is a fictional ghost that appears in the Super Mario series. Boos made their first appearance in Super Mario Bros. 3 .

Characteristics [ edit | edit source ]

Physically, Boos resemble classical Halloween spooks. They are round, puffy and balloon-like in appearance, and usually sport a pair of sharp vampirical canine teeth. Boos have beady eyes and a variety of facial expressions comparable to those of classical jack o' lanterns. Boos have flaps for arms as well as short tails. There are many Boo variations, as they vary in color and size. The most common Boo type is a generic, milky-white Boo, but other Boos can come in hues of blue, green, pink, orange, brown, red and black. One type of Boo, found in Paper Mario, is the Dark Boo, which is violet with glowing orange eyes and a blue tongue. Even though they are ghosts, there has been some controversy as to whether Boos are true ghosts or a species of ghost-like creatures. Judging from their dialogue in Super Mario 64, it is hinted that they are in fact dead Mushroom Kingdom residents. However, this has been contradicted in more recent games, mostly when one takes it into consideration that the ghosts of Mushroom Kingdom citizens have been seen, and they were not Boos. The ghosts in Luigi's Mansion resembled the people they were before they died. Also, Boos can be killed and created by Koopa magic. Boos are often evil, but this is not always the case. They also tend to have jobs and friends, and most Boos appear to have functional roles in society. This indicates that Boos are actually ectoplasmic creatures, not deceased spirits. However, it is possible that Boos are the ghosts of dead Bandits; Bandits wear masks resembling the face of a Boo, and they share with Boos the tendency to steal from people.

Appearances [ edit | edit source ]

Boo first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3 , mostly in castles and fortresses. They won't move if Mario/Luigi faces them, but they'll give a chase when they turn their backs on them. In this game they were known as Boo Diddleys (perhaps a nod to Bo Diddley, an American singer).

Boos were given extended play in Super Mario World , which featured hundreds of them residing in various "ghost houses", with the ability to disappear, group together, rotate in impenetrable circles and make various faces. When Mario or Luigi look toward these creatures, they blush, flinch and stop moving. When the characters turn away, the ghost gives chase. In one level, there is a variant that turns to stone — stone which Mario can safely jump on — when Mario faces him. Eeries (Telesauls in Japan) appear to be a dinosaur version of Boos, but are not shy. Instead, they wander back and forth in groups. In 'Yoshi's Island , Yoshi cannot hit Boos with eggs unless he is facing away and the egg ricochets off of a wall while Boos are active.

Though Boos are, for the most part, minor antagonists, one is Mario's ally in Paper Mario ; Lady Bow, who assists Mario in his battle against Bowser, by making him invisible or scaring enemies.

In Super Mario Bros. Deluxe , a secret set of levels could be accessed if a certain number of points were obtained. In these levels (called "You vs. Boo"), Mario/Luigi raced Boo to the end of the level. Boo acted like a literal ghost in You vs. Boo, finishing at your time (and changing in color) every time you challenge him again after beating him.

In Luigi's Mansion , King Boo is the main antagonist in Luigi's quest to rescue Mario. (He reappears in Super Mario Sunshine ; Super Mario 64 DS, oddly named "Big Boo" like the non-crowned large ghost of that game, except he called himself "the" Big Boo; is playable in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! , and in Mario Party 8 as an NPC) Most Boos are shy but mischievous ghosts that love scaring others (especially Toad, as seen in Luigi's Mansion). Despite the fact that they are "ghosts", they do not seem to be the spirits of the deceased, but rather a separate type of creature.

Super Princess Peach introduced a reversal of this with the Mad Boo, a Boo that chased Peach whenever she looked at it, and cowered when she turned away. A larger boss version exists, known as "Big Boo" (who made its debut in Super Mario World ) and a boss in Yoshi's Island is named "Bigger Boo." Other types include "Fishin' Boo" (Spook in Japan), who floats overhead dangling a lethal blue flame, and a Pink Boo from Super Mario Sunshine who, when sprayed by FLUDD, would turn into a platform for a short time.

New Super Mario Bros. features a Boo (called the Balloon Boo) which inflates itself to massive proportions when stared at, and when Mario or Luigi looks away, it expels the air, propelling itself forward. This game also features a Boo-like creature called a Broozer , a pale ghost with green eyes, a sinister, fanged smile and boxing gloves, which could punch through solid blocks. The Yoshi series of games introduced Boo Balloon, who is a balloon version of a Boo who does not freeze if looked at directly, and Boo Man Bluff (an obvious reference to "blind man's bluff"), a large orange blindfolded Boo, who does not freeze if looked at directly. In Yoshi's Story, a blind variation exists, which approaches on basis of sound rather than sight, as well as a Slime Boo. Boo Guys are the ghosts of Shy Guys that appear in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, and Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. Two variations known as "Greaper" and "Glum Reaper" appear in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.

In Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time , Boos appear in Bowser's Castle. There, they attack simply, but they do not shy away from Mario and Luigi like in the platformers.

In Super Paper Mario , Boos haunt certain chambers in Merlee's Mansion, and Dark Boos inhabit parts of "The Underwhere", a realm where the dead spirits of sinners reside. This may lend evidence to Boos being the spirits of the dead, but it is also possible that they are merely a form of demon.

A recent trailer of Super Mario Galaxy has shown that, through the use of a power-up, Mario will be able to transform into a Boo.

Boos also appear briefly in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening , haunting a single room in Bottle Grotto. These Boos seem to have gotten over their fear of facing opponents and float carelessly toward intruders. Many of the game's weapons are useless against them, as they disappear when struck by them and appear on the diametrically opposite side of the room. When light touches them, however, they turn into retreating shadows and are vulnerable to nearly everything. The Magic Rod remains the only item able to dispatch their ghost forms.

In Mario's Picross , Boo appears as one of the puzzle solutions.

Boos were commonly featured in the Mario Party series. They would have their own space where players could steal each other's coins and stars. In some Mario Party games, Big Boo made an appearance with the role of a regular Boo but was able to steal coins and stars from all players. Starting with Mario Party 5, it became a playable character. Replacing it in its job would be Chain Chomp, and later, a pink Boo.

A Pink Boo appeared in Mario Party 6 . When a player landed on its space, it would steal coins or a star from chosen player for up to 40 coins. The Pink Boo wasn't a space in Mario Party 7, but was an orb that stole stars/coins and gave it to the player; it also appeared in mini-games like Mathemortician and Ghost in the Hall.

In Mario Party 4, Pink Boo appeared on Boo's board and when passed, he will cause the pink bridges to appear/disappear. When visible, in game events such as the Ghost Train will be unusable due to their presence.

Boo is also a playable character in Mario Party 8. There was also a board called King Boo's Haunted Hideaway Where you would give King Boo 10 coins in order to get a Star.

Boo appeared playable in Mario Party 5 and has appeared playable in every Mario Party game.

Some Mario Kart games feature Boo as an item that makes the user invisible and steals an item from a rival. In Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour , Boo is a playable character that must be unlocked by getting 50 best badges in tournaments. In Mario Tennis and Mario Power Tennis a Boo is a playable character; he possesses the ability to curve the ball a great distance and thus confuse opponents.

Boo is also a playable character in Mario Hoops 3 on 3 , and, Mario Superstar Baseball, along with King Boo. Boo is an above average hitter with poor defense and speed, but is a surprisingly good pitcher.

Boo will also be a playable character in the game Mario Strikers Charged , where he is a Playmaker sidekick. In the new Mario Kart Wii Trailer, Boo is seen at 00.50.

Variations [ edit | edit source ]

The enemy called Teresa in Japan has been translated with several names in English translations. The following are not variations: Boo Diddly in Super Mario Bros. 3 and The Big Boo in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars .

The Reason Ghosts Say Boo

A ghostly face

Ghosts have fascinated people for centuries. There are stories around the world about spooky specters, haunted houses, and ghostly encounters . Whether you believe in ghosts or not, you've probably seen the art, including movies and drawings, of a standard white figure shouting "Boo!" But where did that word come from, and why is it associated with ghosts?

The word "boo" isn't as old as the idea of ghosts, according to The Cut . It showed up around the 1400s as "boh." From there, it shifted to "boo" over the next few centuries. The combination of the loud "B" sound with the vowel makes it effective at startling almost anyone if done correctly, and it ended up as a key part of ghost mythology by the early 1800s (per Slate ). It also shows up in some Scottish idioms, and has even been recommended as a way to frighten away birds like geese and swans.

How have ghosts changed over time?

The Cut cites the Oxford English Dictionary's definition of "boo," which compares it to Latin and Greek words that meant "to cry aloud." But other writers have shunned that connection. Slate compares it, instead, to imitating the sound of a cow or a calf.

The use of the word "boo" has shifted some perceptions of how ghosts interact with people, according to Mental Floss . Before the word gained popularity, ghosts were usually seen as intelligent and pretty verbose. That interpretation is found in a lot of literary works, like Shakespeare's "Hamlet" and other pieces from earlier eras. In later works of art, ghosts seemed to lose some of those traits, opting instead for sounds like "boo" to scare the audience.

Taking on a Scottish trend as part of our spooky traditions isn't that unusual. Halloween traditions like carving pumpkins came from Celtic immigrants, too (per Mental Floss). But in other parts of the world, ghosts don't say "boo" at all. Instead, Slate reports, they opt for words like "hou" or "baf."

‘We Have a Ghost’ Review: Me and My Boo

David Harbour stars as an apparition haunting a family’s home in this supernatural Netflix comedy.

  • Share full article

In a bedroom, a smiling ghost stands behind a man as the man speaks with his son, seated on the bed.

By Amy Nicholson

The screenwriter and director Christopher Landon (“Happy Death Day”) will nevermore shudder at a bump in the night. Henceforth, it will just be specters thanking him for “We Have a Ghost,” a cheery kids comedy heavily syruped with pro-ghoul propaganda. Gauging from his appearance, Ernest (David Harbour) — a kindly, nonverbal ghost so named for the embroidery on his bowling shirt — died during the Nixon administration. Since then, Ernest has done spirit fingers in the attic of a cartoonishly spooky three-story Queen Anne, although the creepiest thing about him is his combover.

The gag is that Ernest’s scares are no match for the Presleys, a modern family of the internet age — the demographic of the film’s intended audience, although its ideal viewers will dial down their cynicism and play along. When a Realtor (Faith Ford) hoodwinks the Presley clan into buying the place — “Nothing a little landscaping couldn’t fix,” she coos — the younger son, a shy teenager named Kevin (Jahi Winston), embraces Ernest like a rescue mutt. Kevin’s father, Frank (Anthony Mackie), and older brother, Fulton (Niles Fitch), however, want to use him to get rich and famous. Frank’s rap sheet of cash-grab gimmicks has already dissipated respect for him in the home; even so, he fares better than the kids’ mother, a character so underwritten she’s practically vapor. (Worse, the lead part of Kevin is almost as lifeless.)

Landon’s tale, based on a snarkier short story by Geoff Manaugh, presents Ernest as the first viral video proof-of-afterlife — an odd situation for an unassuming chap who passed away before the invention of Pong. Before you can say “Boo!” Ernest becomes a meme, a stunt challenge, and a cause célèbre among TikTok do-gooders (“Just because you’re not made of matter, it doesn’t mean you don’t matter”). He’s also a target for a C.I.A.-connected paranormal researcher, Dr. Monroe (Tig Notaro), out to boost her own clout.

The film grasps onto anything that will amuse itself for a scene: a stalker dressed like Jesus, a nifty car chase, an unconvincing romance between Kevin and his wacky neighbor Joy (Isabella Russo), who blasts energy into the film as soon as she enters blaring a slide trombone. Jennifer Coolidge also has a cameo as a blasé cable TV medium who visits the house and waves off Ernest as a hologram until he rattles the furniture and melts the skin off his face. These high jinks are so carefree about coherence that during this rampage, we hear the screech of a terrified cat. Do the Presleys own a cat? No.

Conveniently, Ernest’s personality has been wiped by a case of necrotic amnesia that allows this Greatest Generation ghost to pal around with today’s teenagers. In life, Ernest might not have been their first choice to babysit. In death, he’s graced with the empathy of E.T. — and when he makes contact with Notaro’s character, the world-weary doctor melts into a state of wonder as dewy as when Sam Neill made goo-goo eyes at a brachiosaur. How delightfully morbid to give the netherworld a Spielbergian gloss. For his next trick, Ernest can study some scare tactics in the Temple of Doom.

We Have a Ghost Rated PG-13 for language, suggestive references and violence tied to Ernest’s untimely death. Running time: 2 hours 6 minutes. Watch on Netflix.

Screen Rant

Mario: why boo ghosts are so shy.

Though it might almost seem like an obvious idea now, there's an unusually personal reason Boos shrink away instead chasing Mario head-on.

Boos are easily one of the most familiar enemies in the Super Mario games - cartoonish ghosts that are best avoided instead of tackled head-on, typically because they can't be killed without power-ups. Their signature quirk, of course, is that they're shy, only chasing the player if he or she is facing in the opposite direction. The explanation for this has a surprising connection to a designer's personal life.

The first appearance of Boos traces back to 1988's Super Mario Bros. 3 , when they were actually referred to in the English edition as "Boo Diddleys" - a riff on the famous rock musician Bo Diddley. Since they really have nothing to do with Diddley, they later became just "Boos," and have appeared in virtually every Mario game since. They even took a starring role in the  Luigi's Mansion games , serving as an obvious hook for a horror-themed spinoff.

Related:  Mario: Can Yoshi Talk?

Boos were conspicuously absent as enemies from the last flagship Mario game, 2017's Super Mario Odyssey . Although, they'll almost certainly be back in the next big title, since they've made appearances in other games in the meantime, including even  papier-mâché form in Paper Mario: The Origami King . No matter their iteration, they're perhaps best known for being shy.

Mario's Boos Were Born Out Of Trouble

A Big Boo confronting Mario in Super Mario 64

A Boo's shyness was born out of friction between designer Takashi Tezuka and his wife, according to fellow designer Shigeru Miyamoto, who once explained the story in a Nintendo Power interview cited by The Guardian :  " Mr. Tezuka got an idea about putting his wife in the game ," said Miyamoto. " His wife is very quiet normally, but one day she exploded, maddened by all the time he spent at work. In the game, there is now a character who shrinks when Mario looks at it, but when Mario turns away, it will grow large and menacing. "

It's perhaps unsurprising that Tezuka would be in trouble for spending most of his time at work. Crunch has been a long-standing problem in the game industry, sometimes demanding that people work 60-plus hours per week in order to hit a launch window. Developers have been gradually improving their approach to the matter, but labor abuses are still grabbing headlines - former Rockstar producer Dan Houser infamously claimed that some developers worked multiple  100-hour weeks to finish Red Dead Redemption 2 .

Unfortunate origins aside, Boos are too popular to abandon. The only enemies arguably more sacrosanct in Super   Mario canon are Goombas. Still, it's pretty interesting that this is how Boos and their shyness got their origins.

Honkai: Star Rail - How to Win the Debate Against Dr Ratio (Mundane Troubles Guide)

T he new Honkai: Star Rail Version 1.6 has just dropped and with it comes the games’ new event, Crown of the Mundane and Divine. This new event serves as a Trailblaze Continuance mission and currently consists of two major quests that players will have to go through to be able to not only play the time-limited side events but also unlock the new characters' visitor invitations to the Astral Express. The first part of the quest is titled When the Stars of Ingenuity Shine and introduces players to the new limited banner 5-star character Ruan Mei.

Much like previous Honkai: Star Rail missions, this one is equally lengthy and time-consuming. You will have to follow Ruan Mei around the Space Station and help her retrieve some life forms that have escaped to the Seclusion Zone . As this is a new area that will be introduced during the event, players can indeed freely traverse around and explore to their heart's content. The quest will eventually lead to a fight with a new Boss enemy that will be introduced in this patch.

Honkai: Star Rail - Little Ghost Locations In Fyxestroll Garden (Boo Ha Ha! Hidden Achievement Guide)

How to defeat the starcrusher swarm king.

This new boss is not that hard to defeat as all of its summons are weak to Physical DMG . The fight has 2 Phases , and the Swarm King is weak to Physical, Ice and Imaginary type elements. One thing to keep in mind is that when fighting the boss in its Multiply State , players need to keep breaking the Swarm King’s Toughness. Forget about the Swarm surrounding it, as when you attack the Swarm King, breaking its Toughness will cause the surrounding swarms to self-explode.

Players can take characters such as Argenti , Yanxing, Physical Trailblazer, or Clara as heavy hitters that can weaken the Swarm King’s Toughness and their accompanying support to carry you through the fight.

After successfully completing the first part of the quest, you can then move on to the next part in the Master Control Zone. Follow through the story and recall the memories you shared with Asta, Arlan, and Adler to build an alibi. The main objective of this second quest - Mundane Troubles, is to try and investigate the attack on one of Herta’s puppets and recall the Trailblazer’s missing memory.

Once you have saved Adler, spoken to Asta again, and identified Emily as the other Researcher, you will then have all 3 Cognitive Chasms in your possession. Go back into the memory of Arlan’s Investigation and submit the Cognitive Chasm: Researchers’ Disappearance to Arlan and Cognitive Chasm: The Xianzhou Alliance to Adler.

Once you have received the Cognitive Chasm: Energy Lifeform , present it to Herta and reiterate all your memories back to Dr Ratio and the Investigation Team. Unfortunately, he is still wary of the Trailblazers' words, and this is where you will have to debate with him to successfully get through the test.

How to Successfully Counteract Dr Ratio's Argument

Once you continue on, the scene will switch into Questioning Mode, and you will have to present each of the following evidence for each statement that you collected through the Memory Recollection. Simply click on the Recall button to present the relevant evidence.

The debate will end, and a short cut scene will play afterward. You’ll need to receive some help from Arlan, Wen Shiling, Pamela, and Dan Heng, who will give you some Clues that can help further the investigation.

Once you meet back with the Investigation team, there will be another round of discussions where you will have to present evidence using the Clues previously obtained.

You will now be tasked with finding the Infernal Fire that has kidnapped Asta and embark on an Exploratory Excursion to track it down. Physical, Wind, and Imaginary characters are recommended for this Excursion, as there will be quite a few enemies lurking around the domain.

Successfully defeat all the enemies to complete the quest and invite Dr Ratio onto the Astral Express.
