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 on "Goomba" and "brat".
These sub-species first appear in the sky level of Acorn Plains, Mushroom Heights and one of the levels in Challenge Mode, The Goombrat Stomp.
