Captain Goomba, Mario Party 8

Captain Goomba is an oversized Goomba who wears a pirate hat and appears as a non-playable character in Mario Party 8. He appears at the end of Goomba's Booty Boardwalk and gives players a free Star if they reach him. As his name implies, he is a captain of a ship and has a few Pirate Goombas serving under him.

This is a little bit different in Star Battle Arena. In this mode, he still gives characters a star, though it costs 50 coins. Whoever gets the star from him first before their opponent does wins. However, if a player arrive with less than 50 coins, Captain Goomba will let them roll a Coin Block in a Coin Block Area for a chance of winning 1, 5, or 10 coins. After that, he tells his crew of Pirate Goombas to take them back to the start using a cannon.
