Mega Goombas are gigantic versions of Goombas in the Mario franchise. They are larger versions of Big Goombas.


Super Mario series[edit]

New Super Mario Bros. Wii[edit]

Mega Goombas first appear in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Mega Goombas only appear in the World 1 Enemy Course, where two of them appear trying to stop the player from saving the kidnapped Toad. Mega Goombas share the same attack pattern as many of their smaller relatives. When jumped on, they split into two Big Goombas. If Ground Pounded, it splits into four normal Goombas. It takes four fireballs to defeat a Mega Goomba. Mega Goombas cannot be frozen by iceballs from Ice Mario; they will break out instantly after being frozen.

New Super Mario Bros. U[edit]

Mega Goombas reappear in New Super Mario Bros. U. They act the same as in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. When stomped or Ground Pounded, they still split into two Big Goombas or four normal-sized Goombas, respectively, but they now require three fireballs to take out and can now be defeated by Koopa Shells. They are found in Soda Jungle's course Jungle of the Giants and in a challenge called Big Goomba Bounce Bash.

Mario Golf: World Tour[edit]

A Mega Goomba appears in Mario Golf: World Tour on Hole 2 of Wiggler Park. Because it appears behind the green, it is unlikely that the player should hit the ball into it. If they manage to do so, it will cause the Mega Goomba to look around wondering what just happened while the player's ball would likely land Out of Bounds.

Mario Party series[edit]

Mario Party 10[edit]

Mega Goomba makes its first Mario Party appearance in Mario Party 10, where it is one of the game's bosses. Its boss minigame, Mega Goomba's Ladder Leap, involves players climbing up to a higher platform and jumping down onto it to deal damage.

Mario Party: Star Rush[edit]

A Mega Goomba makes an appearance in Mario Party: Star Rush, as the first boss. His boss minigame, Mega Goomba's Bad Dream, has the players collect 25 apples when he is asleep. When Mega Goomba stops dreaming, players need to collect another 25 apples, though he attacks players who approach the apple pile. After the minigame ends, a butterfly appears and Mega Goomba chases it. In Toad Scramble mode, the winner gets one Star.

Super Mario Maker[edit]

Mega Goombas make a minor appearance in Super Mario Maker. If the player puts a Super Mushroom on an already-enlarged Big Goomba, it will become a Mega Goomba, though it will immediately cough out the Super Mushroom and shrink back to Big Goomba, this is because the player cannot enlarge an enemy more than once.

Paper Mario: Color Splash[edit]

Mega Goomba is an enemy fought in Mondo Woods of Paper Mario: Color Splash. Everything in this forest area is bigger than usual due to Kamek's magic.
