As such, they gain red and orange colored maniac eyes with black pupils and their mouth opens, revealing black, sharp teeth.

  • Their alias is the name of the Boos ruled by King Boo from the Super Mario Bros. series.
  • Before Sonic Adventure 2, there have been similar ghost-like enemies called "Hyudoros", which act similarly like Boos and are featured inside the pyramid at the second act of Sandopolis Zone in Sonic & Knuckles. Despite these facts, both Boos/Boom Boos and Hyudoros can be consider as separated ghost species.
