That's a Dark Boo. Purple just looks... so wrong. These Boos are SO creepy. Max HP is 8, Attack is 5, and Defense is 0. Its HP and Attack are high, but they're just like ordinary Boos otherwise. So, just attack it like a normal Boo. Get it before it turns invisible!


Dark Boos are purple Boos that appear in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Super Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. They may be found only in the hidden spot of the Poshley Sanctum, Underwhere Road, and also in the Pit of 100 Trials. Dark Boos are more powerful than their white forms. In Super Paper Mario, they hide in 3-D, waiting for somebody to walk by. Then, they flip to 2-D and attack.

Dark Boos reappear in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time in the Gritzy Caves area, once again stronger than a normal Boo. If a Dark Boo opens up its right eye, it means it is going to attack Mario by appearing behind Mario and ramming him. If a Dark Boo opens up its left eye, it means it is going to attack Luigi by appearing behind Luigi and ramming him. Additionally, if one of the Mario Bros. is attacked, the Dark Boo steals either a normal Item or a Bros. Item. In the next turn, the Dark Boo runs away after stealing the item. They are usually encountered in large groups, rarely appearing alongside other enemies.

Tattle That's a Dark Boo. It likes the dark even more than other Boos... Max HP 13 and Attack is 2. When it sees someone, it gets in their face... I wonder...do you think it looks forward all day to startling people?
