Red Boos make their first appearance in the You VS. Boo feature of Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, in which one of them is the second quickest opponent in the mode, with Black Boo being the quickest.

In Super Mario Sunshine, Red Boos, here referred to as Pink Boos[1], introduce new mechanics. Unlike other Red Boos, Pink Boos can be frozen and turned into Yoshi Platforms when touched by liquid, whether it is F.L.U.D.D.'s water or Juice. These platforms can be used to reach higher areas, primarily in Hotel Delfino. The hotel manager asks Mario to get rid of the Boos haunting his hotel. Although Mario cannot completely defeat Pink Boos, they leave Hotel Delfino after Mario defeats their leader, King Boo.

Red Boos also appear in minigames as Boo-ting Gallery and Specter Inspector.
