Boogities are new enemies introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprisingthat act as guards of Gaol's Castle. They look like floating steel formations with a goblin-like creature embedded in them. Boogities use their slates of metal on their backs as shields, facing them towards Pit to prevent themselves from getting hurt. These metal plates even resist Arrows of Light. When ready, these frightening monsters can turn around to shoot large missiles at Pit. Boogities become vulnerable when they turn around to attack, as the metal slates that they live in protect them from any and all melee and ranged attacks. Boogities first appear in Chapter 2, then appear as recurring enemies throughout the game.
These enemies can shoot missiles and have impenetrable armor on their backs. But when curiosity gets the best of them, they turn around, revealing their weak spot. To their credit, they put a lot of effort into at least looking scary.
