Booler is a nearly transparent specter. He glows with an eerie blue glow and has a wicked smile on his face. Booler has a long, wispy tail and often bears his large red tongue in a childish manner. Booler is also shown to be trailed by a paranormal flame in official artwork, which is a common trait of many stereotypical spirits.
In Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, they don't stick out their tongues out but have a tendency to get angry if Kirby bothers them.
Booler appears as an enemy in Kirby's Pinball Land and Kirby's Block Ball (in which it behaves the same way it did in Kirby's Dream Land) and then once more as another generic enemy in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble.
To date, Kirby's Dream Land is the only platformer that Booler appears in. The rest of its appearances are all in early spin-off titles.

- In Kirby's Pinball Land's Super Game Boy palette and the instruction manual for Kirby's Block Ball, Booler appears lavender instead of light blue.
- A ghost enemy from the Super Mario series called Boo heavily resembles Booler. However, Boos hide their faces when they are seen by their victims, unlike Booler. Coincidentally, Booler's name in Kirby's Pinball Land was "Bumpin' Boo."
