Parent Species Big Goomba

Big Tail Goombas are a sub-species of Big Goombas attached with Tanooki tails that debut in the Nintendo 3DS game, Super Mario 3D Land.

History[edit]

Super Mario 3D Land[edit]

A Big Tail Goomba as it appears in Super Mario 3D Land.

Like normal Tail Goombas, they move by leaping into the air, hovering to another area close to them, then swinging their tails upon landing—however, because they are larger than the average Goomba, their tail swing attack covers a larger radius. They are not much bigger than normal Goombas, though, due to their size being cut down to fit the screen.

They first appear in World 1-1, but seldom appear after that. Big Tail Goombas give the player three coins when defeated, and in World 5-5, one gives the player a Super Leaf.

Mario & Luigi series[edit]

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team[edit]

In Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Big Tail Goombas are found in Dreamy Neo Bowser Castle. They do not show up on the map. Instead, they appear alongside Mechakoopas or Antasmans.

In battle, the large Goombas have two attacks; the first has them hovering towards Mario, which must be countered with a hammer, or else Mario will be rendered dizzy. The second attack has them spinning on the ground in a semi-homing pattern towards Mario. Mario can move out of the way or jump over the Big Tail Goomba in this attack. The Goomba can damage another foe if made to strike them, and may make itself dizzy, signified by a more violent spin; in this case, it sits for a second in front of Mario when near him, and then simply walks towards him.

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam[edit]

Big Tail Goomba returns in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. They are found in Bowser's Castle. Like in Dream Team, they do not appear on the map, instead appearing in battle alongside Boomerang Bros and Paper Dry Bones. They can also be fought in one room of Neo Bowser Castle.

In battle, they have two attacks. Similar to Dream Team, their first attack has them hovering towards any one of the trio. They then will drop from the air onto the brother, who must then counter with the hammer. The Goomba can repeat this attack up to five times in one turn if countered successfully. The second attack has them briefly glancing toward Mario or Luigi, then jumping in front of the brother and spinning their tail, which must be jumped over. It can do this twice in one turn if dodged, after which it will spin toward Paper Mario, who must jump over the Goomba. The last attack can be countered if Paper Mario manages to land on top of the Goomba.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions[edit]

Big Tail Goombas appear in story mode of Bowser's Minions in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, where they appear as allies.
