Parent Species Boo

Tail Boos[1] are Boos with Tanooki tails granted by Super Leaves that appear in Super Mario 3D Land. Their tails are white and grey, unlike Tanooki Mario and other Tanooki-tailed enemies, who have brown and beige tails.

Tail Boos first appear in World 4-4. When Mario looks at one to stop it, it will perform a tail whip as it stops. They can only be defeated by Invincible Mario, just like normal Boos. Some of them drop a Super Leaf or a Statue Leaf upon defeat.


Tail Boos reappear as both enemies and usable minions in the Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser mode of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. Tail Boos are flying troopers, and attack by running into enemies. Their special attack, Spin Cycle, allows them to attack enemies by spinning their tails.
