It is publicly known that the "Boo" ghosts are based on assistant director Takashi Tezuka's wife. Shigeru Miyamoto commented on this: "She is very quiet normally, but one day she exploded, maddened by all the time Tezuka spent at work. In the game, there is now a character which shrinks when Mario looks at it, but when Mario turns away, it will grow large and menacing."
