Goombas resemble small brown mushrooms and are among Mario and Luigi's most persistent foes.

One of the major races of Mushroom World, Goombas are a fungus-based species like Toads, Amanitas, Spooks and Shroobs. Goombas are physically weak and are not much of a threat to Mario, since a single stomp usually defeats them, although a number of different Goomba sub-species have emerged throughout the years. The Goombas, as a collective race, used to be allied with the Mushroom Kingdom. However, many of the Goombas have turned traitorous and joined the Koopa Troop, an organization led by Bowser.
