Paragoombas are recurring enemies in the Mario series. They are a winged variation of Goombas, similar to Paratroopas, winged variations of Koopa Troopas. In order to inflict damage upon them, Mario must jump on top of them to knock them out of the air.


Super Mario series

Super Mario Bros. 3

Super Mario Bros. 3 marks the first appearance of Paragoombas. They first appear in World 1-1 and continue to appear throughout the game.

Super Mario Galaxy

Super Mario Galaxy 2

Paper Mario series

Paragoomba (Paper Mario)

In Paper Mario, Paragoombas appear as the third enemy, excluding Jr. Troopa. They first appear on Goomba Road while Mario is making his way back to Goomba Village. With Goompa temporarily in the party, he informs Mario of Paragoombas briefly.

This is a Paragoomba. Obviously, Paragoombas are Goombas with wings.
Max HP: 2, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 0
You can't hit 'em with the Hammer while they're airborne.
If you damage 'em, they'll fall to the ground and become ordinary Goombas.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

They appear as they normally do in the first Paper Mario game, but now there are less of them.

Super Princess Peach

Many species of Paragoomba appear in Super Princess Peach. Paragoombas fly randomly along the screen. Along with regular Paragoombas, Red Paragoombas make a reappearance from Super Mario Bros. 3, which cling to walls instead of falling off ledges. Paragoombas are also affected by the Vibe Scepter, creating emotional variants.

Mad Red Paragoombas (M. Red P-Goomba in the glossary) are encountered in Fury Volcano, which charge at Princess Peach on sight. If they fall off a ledge, they fly back up.

Sad Paragoombas are the Sad variant, and unlike the regular Paragoombas, they have a set flying pattern, but fly faster.

New Super Mario Bros. series

New Super Mario Bros.

They appear in only one level, World 2-4. They act like in some previous games, periodically hopping around but never actually flying. When Mario or Luigi jumps over them or stands on a platform below, they turn to face them and continue their pursuit. When stomped they lose their wings and become regular Goombas, losing the ability to turn.

NSMB Paragoomba

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Paragoomba NSMBW

In this game, they are rare, unlike its predecessor. They only appear World 7-5 and World 8-3. They act like the previous game in the series.

New Super Mario Bros. U

They appear as they normally do.
