Beta “Boo Key” found in Mario 64

In a screen of Mario 64 Beta there was a strange item inside a Big Boo:

It was difficult to understand what it was, but the mystery behind this item was cleared a bit with the find of the same exact 3D model still in the game: thanks to Toad’s Tool 64, we can change the ID of some items to show up an unused small Key, the same one that was inside Boo in that old image! Dudaw12 has made a video with the ghost key that we can see in his YT channel:

Now the question is: what kind of use had this small key? Why we had to take it from Big Boo in the Mario 64 beta? Could it had some kind of use in the ghost mansion? Probably we’ll never know..

    OMG cool hmm my theory is that u had to kill a Boo to enter a room then kill another Boo to get the next key in order to go to all the areas in the mansion oh and monokoma its spelled mystery below the pic

    Fixed the error! The mansion level in Mario 64 had some unique layout and peculiarities, maybe it had different puzzles in the beta version.. and who knows, it could have been the level that inspired Luigi’s Mansion, were’n there some small keys in L’sM? I dont remember it very well..
