Boo, Goo, Bones, and Kipp are four minor characters in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, where they are a part of Dr. Topper's final question in one of his two puzzle courses in Bowser's Keep. They are a Li'l Boo, a Goomba, a Vomer, and a Goby, respectively, and say they had taken part in a triathlon together beforehand. Dr. Topper challenges Mario to deduce which of the four finished in each place, with each giving a single hint. The events were swimming, cycling, and a marathon. The character who gives each hint is randomized each playthrough, though each hint corresponds to a specific final placement.

Dr. Topper introducing the group

The one who finished first says that they outrode another on their bike, with the other never being able to pass them. The one in second says that they ended up in fourth place in cycling, but in the marathon got the same place they had in swimming. The one in third says they had the same placement in swimming and cycling, but were beaten by two others in the marathon. The one who placed last simply says they placed third in swimming.
