Mega Goomba (enemy)
As the player enters the arena, Bowser Jr. is seen laughing and leaping away. A regular sized Goomba enters the room before it magically increases in size. It will walk around the arena at a reasonable pace. It is however faster than a regular Goomba.
There are three little holes in the floor of the arena for the player to hide in—two of which require the player to crouch, while one holds a ? Switch. Upon pressing this ? Switch, green rising platforms will appear for a set amount of time on either side of the arena. When the player is on one of these platforms, it will rise, allowing the player to jump onto Mega Goomba. This isn't the only way to reach Mega Goomba's top, however—once Mega Goomba is close enough to either wall, the player can also wall jump to gain enough height.
Simple jumps will not affect Mega Goomba. The main way to deal damage to it is to ground pound. This must be done three times before the boss is defeated. Mini Mario must do this 9 times Other ways to damage the boss include firing several fireballs from a Fire Flower or using a Mega Mushroom to instantly defeat the boss.
Once the boss has lost enough health, it will fall over, turning into a Boss Key to unlock the room to the right. There, Bowser Jr. will be waiting with Princess Peach, who will run off with her as the player follows him to Dorrie's Island.
