Giant Land Paragoombas[1] are enormous Paragoombas that are essentially Big Goombas with wings. They are named after Giant Land and possibly originate from there, but they are not seen in Super Mario Bros. 3.

History[edit]

The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3[edit]

Mario and Luigi stomping on two Giant Land Paragoombas in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3.

Giant Land Paragoombas appeared once in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Princess Toadstool for President". Bowser and Cheatsy had brought a cage full of Giant Land 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 Giant Land Paragoombas, stomping them as if they were standard Paragoombas.

Super Mario Galaxy 2[edit]

Giant Land 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 Big Goombas.
