Goombrats are a species of Goomba that debuted in the Wii U title New Super Mario Bros. U. They are short, are lighter brown, and resemble persimmons more than mushrooms. They have different facial features, and the black stems on their head are similar to tomato leaves. They also turn when they reach edges, which is similar to the behavior of red Koopa Troopas. The enemy's name is a composition of "Goomba" and "brat". Additionally, their teeth point down, when regular Goombas teeth point up.
In New Super Luigi U they are significantly more common.
