Template:InfoboxGoombas are the basic enemies in all Mario games. They are short and brown, and are very easy to kill. There are many variants of them, like the Paragoomba, Shell Goomba, and Micro Goomba.
When the Mushroom Kingdom was atacked by Bowser, the Goombas joined sides with him along with all the other species. However, in doing so, the Goombas gave up their freedom and lived as Bowser's minions, which gave him the nickname the Koopa King.
Bowser had the power to do anything he wanted with his new followers. For example, if he wanted to, Bowser could take a Goomba from a shop and put him in his Koopa Troop. Or maybe he might be feeling cruel and fire that Goomba and make him wash dishes. But in secret, Bowser loves his underlings more than his children.
The Goombas also had to put up with ranking. Every enemy is either better or worse than their sub-species, and the ranking decides that. For example, even if there was a Goomba with high talent, he would still be outranked by his winged sub-species: the Paragoomba.
Although many Goombas switched sides during Bowser's siege, some of them didn't and became very well known. Take Portabella for example, even though she's a Goomba, she is still well respected due to her helping beat Nia 3 many times. Other well known Goombas include Goombrian, Goombario, and Professor M. Goomba. A few Goombas even help Mario on his adventures.
