Magically-animated hands made of mud; they first appeared as randomly encountered monsters in the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) video game Dragon Warrior II. An adventure may find a Wizard's Ring on one of Goopi's sticky fingers after slaying it; this ring allows the user to recover some magical power (i.e., MP, magic points) when the artifact is activated. Goopis are weaker than their more robust, crimson relatives, the Graboopis.
These slimy fellows attack by bunching themselves into a fist and delivering a gooey blow. Goopi is a coward at heart and will often call for help from nearby monsters, via a hand signal, if it feels the odds are not in its favor--adventures who don't wish to fight additional enemies would be wise to dispose of Goopi quickly.
Goopi must avoid water--even a moderate downpour of rain can dissolve the creature quickly. Likewise, Goopi cannot cross any body of water, except small, shallow puddles, without returning to the muck from which it rose. Allies don't always come to Goopi's aid when it calls them, leaving the muddy fiend to fend for itself.
Cardboard, white paper, white glue, hot glue, acrylic paint, and watercolor paint.

Unknown; this figure's creation occured before I started keeping thorough records of my work (which means it was made sometime prior to May 30, 2004).
