Paragoombas are fairly uncommon enemies in the Newer series. They are winged variants of the Goomba.


Paragoombas appear like normal Goombas with white wings reminiscent of Koopa Paratroopas.


Paragoombas slowly walk left and right, hopping occasionally. Unlike normal Goombas, Paragoombas follow the player—even if it leads down a pit. Once they are stomped on by the player, they will lose their wings and begin to function like a normal Goomba. Paragoombas can be defeated instantly by a Fire Flower's fireball, Hammer Suit's hammer, or Mega Mushroom.
