|King Boo's regular appearance and his appearance in the Luigi's Mansion games respectively.|
King Boo is the king of the Boos, and Luigi's arch nemesis. He despises the Mario Bros., but hates Luigi more. This hatred is more vicious than Bowser and Mario's rivalry. King Boo has great Magical Powers, and becomes stronger if there are more Boos in the area. King Boo is allied with the King of the Koopas, Bowser, and is best friends with Petey Piranha. Also note that King Boo's ambitions to take over Sarasaland are similar to Bowser's ambitions towards the Mushroom Kingdom. He stars in the McBoo series and plays in the Fantendo Football League.

King Boo was first mentioned by Mario in the fifth chapter as the latter was consoling Luigi after his lost to Bowser two chapters prior. It wasn't until the eighth chapter that King Boo made an actual appearance. In that chapter, King Boo and his underlings showed up at Ludwig's horror castle as Luigi/Mr. L, Lady Bow, Vivian, Doopliss, Mimi, and Nastasia were in the process of searching for one of the eight Purity Stars.
Upon hearing Mr. L boast that he wasn't afraid of ghosts, King Boo immediately recognized his voice as Luigi's, and showed up to confront him. Much to King Boo's annoyance, Mr. L stated that he had no recollection of him. Shortly afterwards, King Boo tried to coax Bow, Vivian, and Doopliss into joining him and the other Boos, claiming that Luigi "takes sheer pleasure and delight in stripping ghosts of their freedom". Unfazed by King Boo's manipulation attempt, the three of them turned down his offer. Shortly afterwards, King Boo ordered his army to attack the heroes. After Doopliss had all of the Boos transformed into pigs (with the exception of King Boo's newest recruit, Shade, who left the area minutes prior to the battle), King Boo decided to have him sealed behind a painting in order for his powers to wear off. He then did the same to Nastasia for a similar reason, figuring that he and the other Boos would have a better advantage if Luigi were to be transformed back into his original, "cowardly" self.
Once the Boos were changed back to normal, King Boo decided to merge with all of them and became King Boolossus. Although Luigi and the remaining heroes tried fighting him off, King Boolossus, due to his immortality, continued to recover from any and all damage that was inflicted upon him. As such, they had no choice but to flee, with King Boolossus promptly giving chase. After they reach a dead end, King Boolossus held Luigi, Bow, Vivian, and Mimi down with telekinesis, materialized, and merged the picture frames that he intended to trap them in. Just as he was in the process of doing so, Professor E. Gadd used the Pixelator to warp the Poltergust 5000 into the room, breaking King Boolossus's concentration. Not wanting to get sucked up again, King Boolossus tried to flee, but Luigi managed to keep him from doing so by snagging him just in time before he flew through the wall, effectively putting an end to the deranged ghostly king's ambitions once again.
Just as Professor E. Gadd pixelated himself into the area to congratulate Luigi and company in person, he revealed that Shade, of all people, was the one who informed him about their dire situation. After Doopliss and Nastasia were changed back to normal, E. Gadd decided to bring the Poltergust 5000 back to his laboratory in order to run King Boolossus through the Ghost Portrificationizer. After Luigi and company were finished defeating Ludwig and retrieving the Purity Star that he had in his possession, they all went to E. Gadd's laboratory, where a surprise birthday party for Luigi (and by extension, Mario) was being held.
King Boo appears in Mario Hoops 3-On-3 Switch (mainly known as Mario Hoops 3-On-3 Deluxe) as a playable character. He is a Tricky character type and his special move is Painting Shot. He is a starter character. His default partner is Boo. His team name is the King Boo Kings.
King Boo reappears in Mario & Luigi: Sage Quest as a boss fought in the Conundrum Manor (though in reality his fight takes place in the Paranormal Dimension). King Boo is first seen when the brothers reach a certain floor in the mansion, seen having a tea party with multiple Boos. Once he notices Mario and Luigi (and begins to lament the times where he kidnapped and trapped Mario in a painting, and Luigi had to defeat him using the Poltergust 5000), he orders the Boos to take care of them (forming the boss Jumb-Boo). He is seen again on the top floor of the manor, where he transports Mario and Luigi to the Paranormal Dimension for his boss battle. After being defeated, he disappears and leaves behind the gems on his crown, which are used to open the entrance door (which was locked earlier once the bros enter the manor for the first time).
His attacks are similar to the ones used in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, though he has new attacks; King Boo will create shockwaves by slamming into the ground four times, which will knock Mario and Luigi away for the rest of the attack duration should they be hit by the attack. Depending on which position he is in before he slams into the ground, either Mario and Luigi must jump first before the other bro jumps. If he slams into the ground hard (which makes the shockwave bigger, stronger and slower-moving), the attack will end prematurely, though spiked balls will fall onto the bros, which must be countered with a Hammer. He will also try to slap both bros by splitting into two and floating up to them, which should be countered by Hammering him multiple times to get him to stop. He can also summon Boos to capture the current Ally they have in their party, and threatens to harm them should they directly attack them or his minions, similar to how he did this with Paper Mario in the aforementioned game.
When he is low on health, King Boo will resort to slamming the platform, tilting it and launching the bros into the window of a mansion hallway, where he will chase after them via rolling into them in an attempt to flatten them. While traversing through the hallway, Mario and Luigi must jump over opened drawers that will stop them dead in their tracks, sand patches that will slow them down, and suits of armor that will swing their axes downwards. After avoiding all of those dangers, Mario and Luigi will hop right back on the main platform and the battle resumes after that. If King Boo catches up to one of them, they will take major damage.
King Boo makes an appearance as a boss in Super Speedstar RPG, under the moniker of Phantom King Boo. King Boo's appearance in this game takes on a reddish tint and appears with the Phantom Ruby in his crown as opposed to his original gemstone. His boss battle has him inflict the Fear status on the party, which allows them to become more susceptible to his attacks. He attacks with Bowser heads that fire off fireballs and getting illusionary boos to attack his fear-stricken opponents. When defeated, it's revealed that it's actually the doing of Infinite, who disappears immediately afterwards.
