A hooloovoo, U, is a type of monster that appears in dNetHack and notdNetHack. It is an unknown abomination that has the ability to phase through walls and over open ground, and is capable of emitting light. Hooloovoos tend to hang around constructed walls, typically confining themselves to the edges of rooms.

A hooloovoo has a teleporting touch and the ability to generate gizmos.


The hooloovoo comes from the series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, where it is described as a hyper-intelligent shade of the color blue. One is said to have participated in the construction of the starship Heart of Gold - this is likely the basis for its tinkering abilities.
