Huge Paragoombas (also referred to as Giant Land Paragoombas or Giant Winged Goombas) are enormous Paragoombas that come from Giant Land. They are essentially Grand Goombas with wings.

History[edit]

The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3[edit]

Huge Paragoombas do not actually exist in Super Mario Bros. 3. Instead, they appeared once in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Princess Toadstool for President". Bowser and Cheatsy had brought a cage full of Huge Paragoombas to the Mushroom Kingdom, which they unleashed on a field of crops. However, Mario and Luigi showed up and made quick work of the Huge Paragoombas, stomping them as if they were standard Paragoombas.

Super Mario Galaxy 2[edit]

Huge Paragoombas also appear in Super Mario Galaxy 2 in the Supermassive Galaxy. The only way to defeat them is to spin and then kick or spin into them again, as if they were standard Grand Goombas.
