Micro-Goombas, also known as Mini Goombas, are a subspecies of Goomba, and an underling of the Paragoomba. They don't make many in-game appearances and are simply a smaller carbon copy of Goombas.


Super Mario series

Super Mario Bros. 3

Micro-Goomba first appears in Super Mario Bros. 3. They first appear in World 1-2.

In this game, Micro-Goomba's primary aim is to slow down Mario/Luigi, or better still, inhibit their progress by distraction. Contact with the Micro-Goombas results in them clinging to either one of them. This prevents the brothers from being able to jump high. Incessant jumping shakes off these foes.

Super Mario 64/DS

Micro-Goombas reappeared in Super Mario 64 and its remake Super Mario 64 DS.

In the game, these small foes can be found on the small version of Tiny-Huge Island. They cannot do any damage though. Instead, they knock Mario back a few feet. Like normal Goombas, they can simply be defeated by a bonk on the head or punched/kicked. They are usually located near bottomless pits, hindering the progress of Mario even more. Despite their miniature size, they release a regular coin two times its size when defeated.

They turn into Grand Goombas when the island becomes huge.

Super Princess Peach

Micro-Goombas reappeared in Super Princess Peach. They usually appear when there is a Paragoomba near by. Just like in Super Mario Bros. 3, their aim is to slow Peach/Perry down, making them jump lower. The player must jump multiple times to shake them off.

New Super Mario Bros.

In New Super Mario Bros., they appear in bonus rooms that only Mini Mario can access. They act like regular Goombas, but Mini Mario can defeat them with a stomp attack. Larger Marios can defeat them simply by touching them. They appear in Levels 1-4, 3-A, 6-1, 7-5, 8-2 and 8-4.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

They act similar to Super Mario Bros. 3, but can be defeated by stomps and fireballs, and are not dropped by Paragoombas.
