The Hoohooligans are an elliptical people that inhabit Hoohoo Village. Their body structure is very comparable to a cactus, but they are most likely designed after upright beans. Their civilization is apparently very old; the ancient Hoohooligans wrote jokes in an ancient language called Hooroglyphy and constructed the Hoohooros.

In Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Hooskis who resemble brown Hoohooligans appear.


  • The Hoohooligans' name is a portmanteau of "Hoohoo" (the style of laughing Hoohoo Mountain was named for) and "hooligan" (meaning "a rowdy person").
  • The Hoohooligans closely resemble Haniwa, simple ancient Japanese sculptures, as well as the Gyroids from the Animal Crossing series and the Cactuar monsters from Final Fantasy.
