King Boo

Don't let his looks deceive you, he's very mean.

Game Series Mario series
First Appearance Luigi's Mansion

King Boo is a recurring character in the Mario series. He is the leader of all the Boos. He can easily be identified by the crown on his head, and his larger size compared to most Boos.


Luigi's Mansion[]

King Boo has a prominent role in Luigi's Mansion. He is the final boss, and the cause of all of Professor Elvin Gadd's troubles (it is later found out that King Boo released all the ghost boss portraits, as one of the portraits was of Boolossus). King Boo created a mansion next to E.Gadd's lab where the portrait ghosts roam freely. Luigi later finds out that King Boo has captured Mario inside of a golden portrait, and must travel to the furthest point of the Mansion (after defeating a good chunk of Boos).

In the final confrontation, King Boo hides within a giant Bowser suit and is invincible until Luigi shoots a spike bomb at him. "Bowser's" head pops off, and King Boo pops out, and sucks him up. He has a whopping 500HP.

Once Luigi sucks him up, King Boo is turned into a portrait, and Mario returned from inside the portrait.
