Micro-Goombas or Mini Goombas is a mini size of the Goomba. They would make their debut appearance in Super Mario Bros. 3. Micro-Goombas would look like normal Goombas but are smaller in size and their main purpose is to slow down the player to try and impede their process.


[edit] Game History

[edit] Super Mario Series

[edit] Super Mario Bros. 3

Paragoombas would drop Micro-Goombas in Super Mario Bros. 3. When they are attached to Mario or Luigi, they will weaken their jump temporarily. They would first appear in level 1-2 and after they are launched, they will float to the bottom of the screen slowly. If they touch Mario or Luigi, they will cling to him and slow them down as they prevent them from jumping high. They would need to jump repeatedly until they knock them off. Pile Driver Micro-Goombas would also appear in this game.

[edit] Super Mario 64

Micro-Goombas could be found on Tiny-Huge Island in Super Mario 64 and its remake, Super Mario 64 DS. They would not appear on the huge size of the course but only on the tiny side. Mario could not be hurt by these enemies, but they could knock him back a few feet as they die. They could be found close to near bottemless pits or cliffs, and will often try to knock Mario off them. They could be defeated by being jumping on, or by being punched or kick. They will only give Mario a Coin when defeated.

[edit] New Super Mario Bros.

They would return in New Super Mario Bros. where when Mario is a Mini Mario, he will be able to enter the mini pipes. When he enters one, he can sometimes find a Star Coin and occasionally will be guarded by Micro-Goombas. They will have to be defeated so that Mario can collect the Star Coin. They can be defeated by being jumped on while being Mini Mario but be defeated by walking into them from other forms.

[edit] New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Micro-Goombas could also be found in New Super Mario Bros. Wii in the open world and usually in groups. They would not be dropped from the Paragoombas but they will weigh down Mario after swarming them. They will not hurt Mario but just slow him down. They could be defeated by a Spin Jump.

[edit] New Super Mario Bros. 2

Micro-Goombas will appear in New Super Mario Bros. 2.

[edit] Nintendo Adventure Books

When Mario explores the Mushroom Kingdom in Double Trouble, he would come across a swarm of Paragoombas that would drop Micro-Goombas on him. If Mario picks them off instead of running for cover, they will knock him out with some kind of gas. If he runs for the pipes instead, he will pick them off and be left alone when the Paragoombas get bored of waiting for him.

[edit] Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars


There would be a species called Goombettes that would appear in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. They could be found only in the Sunken Ship and would be one of the enemies in the ship. There would be a group of them(The Triplets) that would run a shop. The shop would sell Mushroom that could heal 30 HP but would turn them into a mushroom. The party member who uses it would still heal HP as long as the Mushroom status remains.

[edit] Super Princess Peach

The Mugger Micro-Goombas from Super Mario Bros. 3 would appear in Super Princess Peach as they would help Bowser with his conquest of Vibe Island. They would completely weight down the player and the player would need to use the Rage vibe or the Joy vibe to get them off.

[edit] Mario & Luigi Series

[edit] Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time

During the battle with Mrs. Thwomp in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, there would be Micro-Goombas who act as miniature clones.

[edit] Paper Mario Series

[edit] Super Paper Mario

Micro-Goombas would not appear in Super Paper Mario, instead a resident in The Underwhere would mention that he died because of a Micro-Goomba and a bottomless pit. There is also a Sammer Guy called "Micro Boomba" as a reference.
