The most common thug Mario encounters in his adventures. Goombas are easily scared, beat, and don't have much of an attack pattern. It is said, however, that huge and tiny variations exist somewhere...

Goombas are recurring enemies in the Mario series. They are a common enemy, appearing in every game of the Newer series.


Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii

Goombas are depicted as brown mushroom-like creatures with feet. They have bushy eyebrows and a pair of fangs sprouting from their lower jaw.

Goombas can appear in different colors. In Navyblue Molemine, they appear blue, and in Grey Mountains, they appear grey. Also, in snowy levels, Goombas wear Santa hats. These Goombas are known as Christmas Goombas.

Newer Super Mario Bros. DS

Goombas appear the same as the last game. Though this time, they're 2D sprites instead of 3D models. This is because in the original game, they're 2D sprites.

As with Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, some Goombas wear Santa hats. But in Lunar Realm, some Goombas wear astronaut helmets. These are called Space Goombas. Also, in Pumpkin Boneyard, Bone Goombas can be found.


Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii

Goombas are the easiest enemies in the game. They slowly walk left and right, fall off ledges, and can be defeated by almost anything.

Newer Super Mario Bros. DS

Goombas behave the exact same as the last game. They walk slowly, fall off ledges, and can be killed by almost anything.
