Goomba Towers, also known as Goomba Stacks, are Goombas stacked on top of each other (ranging anywhere from stacks of 2 to stacks of 10) that first appeared in Super Mario 3D Land.
Super Mario series
Super Mario 3D Land
Goomba Towers attack by running at the player and attempting to hit him or her in a similar fashion to individual Goombas. Goomba Towers can be shortened or defeated depending on how many Goombas the stack has. For example, attacking a stack of four will reduce it to three, and so on. Alternatively, they can be killed all at once with a Ground Pound or Statue Mario. They can be defeated one-at-a-time by being jumped on, being hit with a fireball or boomerang, or whacking them with Tanooki Mario's tail.
Three Goomba Towers are seen in Peach's Letters. Two try to attack her when she attempts to escape, but she defeats one with her parasol (apparently getting a 1-Up in the process). Another Goomba Tower is later seen chasing Peach with Bowser and his other minions. During the credits, Bowser is seen on top of a massive Goomba Tower, trying to reach Mario, who is carrying Peach home in his Tanooki form, but this ultimately fails.
New Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario 3D World
Goomba Towers once again return as common enemies in the game Super Mario 3D World. Once again, their attack pattern is simply to try to ram Mario or his allies; however, some Goomba Towers have a non-Goomba enemy, such as a Fire Bro, at the top; defeating this enemy first takes out the whole tower. Goomba Towers can also hold objects; one Goomba Tower early in the game even has a Green Star in the middle of the stack. There are also a few that carry Super Mushrooms. Some Goomba Towers can be found with all the Goombas sleeping.
Mario Party series
Mario Party 9
Goomba Towers appear in Mario Party 9 in the Goomba Spotting minigame, where players attempt to count the total number of Goombas that run across the screen as accurately as possible. Sometimes, Buzzy Beetles appear in the tower to trick the players into tallying them.
Mario Party: Island Tour
Goomba Towers appear in Mario Party: Island Tour. One Goomba Tower is the first boss of the Bowser's Tower mode, being fought on the fifth floor, and its boss minigame is Goomba Tower Takedown. Another appears in the board Perilous Palace Path, and determines whether the player takes the main path or the Bowser Zone.
Mario Party 10
Paper Mario: Sticker Star
In Paper Mario: Sticker Star, five Goombas appear in Bouquet Gardens and stack together as a Goomba Tower to bend into a wheel as part of their dramatic entrance to attack Mario and Kersti. The battle against them has Kersti demonstrate to Mario how the Battle Spinner works. Afterwards, the five Goombas are defeated in battle and subsequently surrender.
