While he may be the slowest moving of the Spikels, Hoogi is always very heartfelt, kind, creative and affectionate. However, he mostly expresses his emotions freely and dramatically, often going into over-dramatic spells when he gets upset, being outright weak in some situations and tending to give up easily. He cares for his friends and loves to show his love with his cute giant bear hugs especially to Scorpi, whom he regularly holds nuzzle-wuzzle moments with. He is also fond of paper-craft, using his sharp blade-like fingers to cut paper into chains.
Hoogi is mostly tan in color. His body is rectangular and also acts as his head. He has two eyes placed on the edges of his body. He has a well-defined jaw with a darker tan stripe right above it and two saber-teeth that point upwards. On top of his head is a darker tan stripe with a single spike. His arms are silver and very long. There are two tan spikes on each of them. His hands are darker tan with a black stripe and brown spike on them. His fingers are tan, but shift to silver blades near the end. He has short black legs that bow and boot-like dark tan feet with two brown toes on each.
His fingers are knife-like talons that pierce easily.
Calling All Mixels
- Twin Slash: Do two quick slashes, damaging all enemies in front of you.

Little is known about Hoogi's early life. However, he created a nightly Nuzzle-Wuzzle time with Scorpi at one point.
At a party, he managed to get kidnapped by the Nixels, and had to be rescued to help rescue the other Mixels. ("Calling All Mixels")
While spending a day with his brothers in Mixel Park, Scorpi leaped on his head out of fear from Glurt's overenthusiasm, and stayed on it for a while. When a blast of magic from Magnifo scared him off and caused him to Murp with Glurt, Hoogi was extremely worried for his brother, especially because he was afraid of him missing their nightly Nuzzle-Wuzzle time. After Footi and Torts failed to catch him, he and Glomp Mixed in an attempt, but only managed to crash into a Wiztastics billboard. Once inside the Magic Tent, they climbed the rafters and followed the Murp, eventually catching him. After a blast of magic from Magnifo caused the rafters to break, all of them fell into an upside-down pyramid. ("Murp Romp")
When Glomp was sick with a cold, he was one of the Mixels there to try and help him feel better. He suggested a hug, as he believes hugs cure everything. He then decided everyone there needed a hug, causing the others to run away from him. ("Glomp's Gooey, Sneezy Cold!")
Hoogi was one of almost all of the Mixels who searched and fought for the Mixamajig, and then captured by King Nixel. He Maxed with his branch of the Spikels in order to defeat him, and Mixopolis was revealed by the Weldos soon after. ("A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig")
- "And poor little Scorpi will miss our nightly nuzzle-wuzzle time! WHAT’LL WE DO?!" - Hoogi, Murp Romp
- "Yeah! He's our bestest nuzzle-wuzzle buddy!" - Hoogi, Murp Romp
The set includes a Nixel.
