Spooky Speedster, Super Mario Galaxy

The Spooky Speedster is a character from Super Mario Galaxy. He is a Boo wearing a helmet and a visor, and he challenges Mario to a race for a Power Star.

Mario races him in Ghostly Galaxy during A Very Spooky Sprint, during which Mario must use Pull Stars to navigate through the track. He also meets him in the Boo's Boneyard Galaxy during its only mission, Racing the Spooky Speedster. Here, Mario must turn into Boo Mario and race through a tunnel. When Mario meets the Spooky Speedster, he calls the Power Star "it", assuming Mario is also after "it". If Mario reaches the finish area first, the Spooky Speedster gives him the Power Star. However, if Spooky Speedster gets to the Power Star first, Mario loses a life.

Along with Cosmic Mario, he is a rough equivalent to Koopa the Quick and Il Piantissimo. When he starts a race he pulls his visor down over his eyes.

Super Mario Galaxy Trading Card Description[edit]


Mario encounters this restless spirit deep in the Ghostly Galaxy. Spooky Speedster is a Boo that challenges Mario to a race through the cosmos for a Power Star. Mario must use Pull Stars to navigate the creepy, bone-ridden course. If he beats him, Spooky will graciously award the celestial prize.
