Goombas are a recurring enemy in the Mario series and one of the most prominent species in the Mushroom World. They are weak and not much of a threat to Mario, usually able to be defeated with just one stomp, although there are several sub-species. Not all Goombas are bad, however. Some Goombas, like Goombario and Goombella, are Mario's allies. It has many sub-species, like the Paragoomba.


The Goomba is a brown, mushroom-like creature with brown feet. It has to sharp fangs that stick up from the bottom of its mouth.
