Talk:Red Boo

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Article[edit]

The Mario Party 4 instruction manual calls them Red Boos-while other Instruction Manuals call them just Boos. If you notice carefully they look red too, not just pink.

What do we do? Change this article to Red Boo? Also notice there's also a lot of King Red/Pink Boos in Mario Party 7. Just wnated to point out King Boo is not the only king of Boos. Paper Jorge

King Boo is not his own subspecie Knife (talk)

Put your signature on. And just pointing that out! Let's talk about Red Boo shall we? Paper Jorge

  • Super Mario Sunshine's Manual are stated as Pink Boos. Period. WarioLoaf (talk)
Just pointing something out. Thank you. Paper Jorge

I know SMS has Pink Boos, but other games could have Red Boos. A split, maybe? -- Son of Suns

Hmm...I only noticed Mario Party 4 calling them Red Boos...Paper Jorge

This is just like the case of the Bloober and Blooper situation. Just create a redirect from Red Boo and add info about its name change. The Boos in MP4 are clearly the same (or look the same) as the Pink Boos we have now.Knife (talk)

Okey dokey then. What about King Pink Boo? Paper Jorge
  • Is there such thing? I thought King Boo was King of ALL Boos. WarioLoaf (talk)
There is such thing in a Mario Party game. There's a million of King Pink Boos too. Paper Jorge
  • UH, Those are called BIG Pink Boos, no Crown, and your thinking of Booed off the Stage, right? WarioLoaf (talk)

No idea but they DID have crown...it was in Mario Party 7... Paper Jorge

  • Oh, then I havent played that one yet. Just got it for Christmas. Havent played it yet. WarioLoaf (talk)

King Boo is not the king of ALL Boos. I know what Boo your talking about. Big Pink Boos is an incorrect name. First of all, they are not bigger than regular Pink Boos. Second of all, there is virtually no way to find out its canonical name, since they have stopped making official guidebooks for the MP series. In the Mini-Game description, it simply says "shoot the crowned Boos to get 3 points".

Also remember that there were many creatures like it, such as the Gold Goombas that were worth in "Royal Rumpus". See what I mean? Just DONT create a page, its useless.Knife (talk)

  • Hmmmm, mabey the crowned boos were Queen Boo and a couple of there royal family members.WarioLoaf (talk)

The Pink Boo from Mario Party 6 is a female... So perhaps all male Boos are white (the ones in Gusty Gulch were probably like that because of their environment which made them dirty.), while most females are pink, but can be other colors in Bow's case or the female blue Boos from Paper Mario 2. --King Boo 21:01, 2 August 2007 (EDT)

Title[edit]

Where are they officially called "Pink Boo"s? I've seen them be called Red in official manuals and such, but never Pink. Please explain? BNK [E|T|C] 23:47, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

No Idea, but they were named Red Boos in the description of Boo-ting Gallery. 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

Pink or red[edit]

A Paragoomba and the Koopa Bros. moved Red Boo to Pink Boo because they are only called Red Boos in MP8. Doesn't our policy tell us to name the page after the most recent name?

What? I don't understand. --APA TKB 250px-197Umbreon.png 07:49, 23 June 2013 (EDT)

Super Mario Sunshine[edit]

As seen here, the Japanese names for Boo Block and the SMS "Pink Boo" are the same. Even though it's more of an orange-pink, but whatever. This page's validity is questionable on a few accounts as it is, if it weren't for the Mario Party item I'd push for it to be merged with Boo. Aaaaaanyways, my point is, original creator's intent is that the SMS ones are the same as the things in SMW/YS. Yes they behave differently, but the Boos in this game don't care if you look at them, fly around meanderingly in upside-down arcs, look like they've had a little too many of the hotel's complementary margaritas, have curly tails, turn invisible over time and can be changed back with spraying, and are defeated with a jump. The slight behavioral difference regarding how they become blocks is paltry by comparison. As it currently is, the information that is linked to by other pages is on here, with a short reference of the Block Boo page, and I think it should be vice-versa. The page name should stay as "Block Boo," because "Pink Boo (block)" would only be valid for one game, though the YI blocks have pink stripes. Have I lost anyone? What does everyone else think? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:32, 7 October 2017 (EDT)

Anyone? I still think that section should be moved, based off of policy and logic. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:15, 5 November 2017 (EST)
I'd be in favor of a merge. Niiue - Who has lost his tail? 07:59, July 3, 2019 (EDT)
I'm not too sure about how to proceed. The enemies are off-model because of being made out of goop, but they work differently from the Boo Block. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 10:35, July 3, 2019 (EDT)
I agree with Doc and Niiue. The differences between Block Boo and this game's version of it are moot given how unusual the standard Boos are, and I should note that it's only called "Pink Boo" in the Prima guide, as "pink Boo" is used in the Versus Books and Nintendo Power guides. LinkTheLefty (talk) 11:05, July 3, 2019 (EDT)
We don't know wether the similarity to pink Boo is intended or coincidental. Out of curiosity, what's the internal filename? --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 10:03, July 6, 2019 (EDT)
The block form itself is in root/data/scene/delfino0.szs/scene/mapobj/telesablock.bmd, but I think the model for the pink Boo is shared with the white one in the root/data/scene/delfino0.szs/scene/telesa folder. LinkTheLefty (talk) 10:51, July 6, 2019 (EDT)

Merge Sunshine info with Block Boo and have the "mainarticle" template be here instead[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

merge 7-0

See above. The JP name for the Sunshine enemy is "Block Teresa," which is shared with Boo Block, and it essentially acts analogous to Boo Block given the nonstandard nature of Boos in the game.

Regarding this, the other colors, and the standard Boo page[edit]

Question.svg This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.

So, somewhat tying into the above, we may want to seriously consider merging the rest of this page to the standard Boo page, along with Green, Blue, (EDIT:oh wait "Blue Boo" is Boo Balloon) and potentially Black Boos. As this article says, "They are treated and behave similarly to white Boos, with the only difference being their coloration in most depictions," along with having that big old part-conjecture template. Furthermore, the roles have been shown to vary amongst each other (with MP6's just being a valley girl version of the previous games' Boos), sometimes Red, Green, and Blue simply act the same but as a trio (much like the split Koopa Kids, which share an article), and overall, this is primarily a color variant post-N64 to pre-Nd Cube Mario Party games used for variety's sake, with other appearances having even less reason to be split. Even the SMBDX thing is just a time trial gimmick that could easily share one page. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:46, October 22, 2020 (EDT)

I absolutely agree that the Green, and Black Boos should be merged since they hardly made relevant appearance besides one and two appearance respectively and acted the same. Not even the actual "Blue Boos" from Mario Party Advance and Mario Party DS have an article nor does the "Yellow Boo" from Mario Party DS. While its true that the Pink Boos are simply a color variation like most species and usually behaving exactly in almost every game. However, besides being the second most common Boo color in appearance in games with regular ones being the most common of course, Pink Boos had a purpose of being replacements to regular Boos due to Boo itself being playable since Mario Party 5, the Pink Boos took the regular Boos old role as replacements of being background characters, obstacles on boards or mini-games, thieves of stealing coins and stars up until Mario Party DS due to Boo not appearing as a playable. I honestly don't know who made the Blue Boo article redirect to the Boo Balloon without a source like a manual calling them that alternatively. Also a side question is that even though I own Mario Party: The Top 100 where did the Pink Boo cameo? I do find it funny were talking about this on a rather fitting month ironically. --KingGeoshiKoopshi64 (talk) 03:33, October 23, 2020 (EDT)
