The Mega Goomba as it appears in New Super Mario Bros.
|First Game||Super Mario Bros. 3|
The Mega Goomba is a large Goomba who first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3 that appears in World 4-1. In New Super Mario Bros it acted as one of the bosses in the game. It guarded the fourth castle that Mario had to travel through to rescue Princess Peach. When Mario encountered him, he had to activate certain platforms by stomping on a switch, that would take him to the top of the Goomba. Mario could then Ground-Pound the Goomba three times (or hit it with 27 fireballs), defeating it. The Mega Goomba appears as a somewhat rare enemy which is renamed to giant Goomba in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Subspace Emissary. Its latest appearance was in Mario Party 10, where he acts as a miniboss associated to the Mushroom Park board.
