Gooma is Goombario and Goombaria's kind grandmother in the game Paper Mario. Mario only needs to talk to her once throughout his entire adventure. She, along with the rest of the Goomba family, lives in Goomba Village.
- She's my grandma, Gooma. I hope she lives forever! She's the greatest! When she starts telling old stories, she always says, "When I was young, I was very popular with the boys."
