One of the pillars found in the battle with Hoohooros. Sprite of a Pillar from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions.

Hooroglyphs are ancient letters found in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They appear in the background of Hoohoo Village, Hoohoo Mountain, Guffawha Ruins, and Teehee Valley's underground ruins. Whether the pictographs are still used or not is unknown, although a Hoohooligan mentioned they were used by the Hoohoo civilization and chronicled the countless jokes developed by it. Hooroglyphs mostly look like a mixture of lines and dots that come together to form the picture of a laughing person. Hoohooros, guardian of Hoohoo Mountain, hides behind pillars engraved with Hooroglyphs during battle.

The name of the Hooroglyphs is derived from hieroglyphs, and it also includes the "Hoohoo" laugh title used by areas such as Hoohoo Mountain.
