Balloon Boo is an enemy exclusive to New Super Mario Bros. They only appear in World 4-Ghost House.


Balloon Boos are big Boos with pink cheeks and a balloon knot shaped tail. They also have bigger eyes.


Balloon Boos act like normal Boos, but a little bit different. When you're looking at a Balloon Boo, it will suck in air, making itself bigger. This air won't affect Mario. When you're looking away, the Balloon Boo will chase you, using the air it sucked in. This will make the Balloon Boo shrink until it's around the size of Mario.
