The Chuboomba is an enemy found in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. Their name is a portmanteau of "chubby" and "Goomba". Chuboombas are large Goombas holding lollipops, and are encountered at Cavi Cape and Plack Beach.
Chuboombas are fought by Bowser in the overworld, and are the first (and weakest) normal enemy he encounters. In battle, it attacks by tackling Bowser, which he must counter with a punch. If it wheezes before tackling, it will hesitate before impact, so the player must remain alert. Mario and Luigi can also go to Cavi Cape and/or Plack Beach to fight Chuboombas and their attacks can be countered with hammers. If Bowser uses the vacuum block to inhale a Chuboomba's lollipop, he will recover 30 HP, and the Chuboomba will run away upset, defeating it (though no experience is given).
Despite being very unintelligent, they can dodge Bowser's punches by simply moving in a different direction.
Chuboombas are always the target for the demo of Bowser's Special Attacks. Unless the player gets an "Excellent" during the attack, the Chuboomba will not die and instead run away.
