Welcome back, everyone, to my 7th character comparison! I will be using Galactic Petey's idea this time, a comparison between two enemy kings! Both are in a spin-off game, a 3D game and DS handheld games but what's so different about them? Let's see!

Physical Appearance

Petey Piranha

Petey looks almost like a Piranha Plant, except he has flower petals on his head, he has legs, he has arms, and he's giant!

King Boo

King Boo looks almost like a regular boo, except he has a crown.


Petey Piranha

Petey appeared in many 3D and spin-off games. His first appearance was in Super Mario Sunshine for the GameCube. Bowser Jr. assigned him to guard Bianico Hills. Mariofought bravely and defeated Petey twice. His appeared again in New Super Mario Bros. as the fifth boss. After this, he appeared in almost every spin-off such as the Mario Golf series, the Mario Kart series and the Baseball series. After the spin-offs, he appeared in Super Princess Peach as a boss.

King Boo

King Boo first appeared in Luigi's Mansion for the GameCube as the villain. Apparantly, he wanted to capture both Mario and Luigi. He got Mario but he lost to Luigi in the end. He next appeared in Super Mario Sunshine as one of the bosses. He then appeared in Super Mario 64 DS for the DS as the boss of Big Boo's Haunt. Once again, he lost. He then appeared in some spin-offs, the Mario Kart series, the Baseball series, the Mario Party and the Mario and Sonic series. He also appeared as a boss in Super Princess Peach.


Petey Piranha

Petey has the ability to fly, headbutt, dig and make a Piranha Plant seed, make shockwaves, stomp and spit Nipper Plants.

King Boo

King Boo can teleport, blow Luigi into the foyer, materialize things out of thin air, fly and blow fire!


Petey Piranha

Petey is huge, but not very smart. He loves sleeping but will come running at Mario if he is waken up. His goal is to kill Mario and will stop at nothing to achieve it. He also loves food.

King Boo

King Boo is really intelligent and powerful. He is also very confident, such as at winning or at defeating Mario. He also likes taunting at this enemies.

PETEY PIRANHA- I have seen a lot of Petey lovers on this wiki and the world. Anyway, the reason why he won is because he's funny, strong and appears in more games then King Boo! Well that's the end of my November comparison. I'll see you in December!
