From the Super Mario Wiki
A Tail Goomba is a Goomba with a Tanooki tail that appear in Super Mario 3D Land. Its powers were given by Bowser with his Super Leaves. It attacks by swinging its tail like Tanooki Mario.
Tail Goombas attack like Tanooki Mario by swinging its tail. They jump into the air and flutter down to the ground slowly, and perform a tail whip when they land. They are defeated like normal Goombas and Mario can take their Super Leaf after defeat. Some species of Tail Goombas jump into the air towards Mario, trying to catch him with a tail whip. There are also Grand Tail Goombas, larger variants of Tail Goombas. A late beta also featured golden variants of Tail Goombas. They attacked in the same manner as the normal variants, but flew further.
Defeating a Tail Goomba gives the player one coin, but some may also give a player a Super Leaf.
In Mario Golf: World Tour, Tail Goomba is one of the names that can appear on the tournament scoreboard.
