Mario and Goombario traveling through Goomba Road
The Goomba Road is a small road that leads to Goomba Village and Toad Town. The road only appears during the events in the game Paper Mario. As Mario and Goombario travel through this path, they must fight off the notorious Goomba Bros. and the Goomba King, the first boss of the game, to continue their hike to Toad Town. The Goomba King's fortress is here, as is many secret items. It is mostly an introductory area where basic skills are learned.
