Booler is a floating ghost-like enemy which appears in early Kirby games. It resembles a Boo from the Mario franchise, though it does not behave similarly. It flies about in various patterns, either going in straight lines, circles, bounces, or seeking Kirby directly. Booler can appear out of thin air under certain circumstances.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land[edit]

KDL Booler sprite.png Booler makes its first appearance in the first Kirby game. It appears in Castle Lololo as well as Mt. Dedede, where it can be seen in a large variety of different flight formations. Booler can be inhaled (which yields 200 points), but is worth 400 points when defeated by other means.

In the Extra Game, Booler is replaced by a similar enemy named Gaspar.

Kirby's Pinball Land[edit]

Booler (known here as Bumpin' Boo[1]) appears as an obstacle on the Kracko Land stage of Kirby's Pinball Land. It flies around a Gordow and is worth 360 points when hit. Hitting them is necessary to call a Warp Star on that floor.

Kirby's Block Ball[edit]

KBBa Booler sprite.png Booler appears as a common enemy in this game, and is worth 300 points when defeated. It usually drops a Block Flip item.

Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble[edit]

KTnT Booler.png Booler reappears in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, appearing in some boss stages. Boolers often appear out of nowhere, holding position or trying to pursue Kirby when provoked. Some Boolers need to be lured away from the areas they guard in order to progress. Other Boolers will only start pursuing Kirby if he is occupying a Jump Hole.


In Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, Booler can be found in the following levels and stages:
