Card Description
A Goomba that thrives in dank, depressing holes. A strict all-mushroom diet makes this guy extra fungal.
This is a Gloomba, a Goomba that lives its entire life underground... Max HP is 2 and Attack is 2. It doesn't see a lot of sun, so it's a little pale... But it is stronger than your average Goomba...and has a very dark personality... It must be hard to be a pale, friendless Goomba that lives underground...

Not to be confused with Galoomba.

Gloombas are blue Goombas that appear in the Paper Mario series. Gloombas live deep underground, in areas such as Toad Town Tunnels and the Pit of 100 Trials. These Goombas are much more powerful than their surface-dwelling cousins. It is said that a Gloomba gets its blue hue from living without sunlight and are possibly based off the blue Goombas Mario encounters in the underground levels of Super Mario Bros. In the Prima Super Paper Mario strategy guide, it is stated that Gloombas can poison the player, although this is false[page number needed].

Log A Goomba that likes dark, damp places. It must look like that because it lives below ground!
Tattle That's a Gloomba. It likes dark, damp places. It's stronger than a normal Goomba, so be careful. That's not a healthy color for a Goomba, but it doesn't mean it's sick or anything. So don't show any mercy!
