That’s a Dark Headbonk Goomba. They live in the Flopside Pit of 100 Trials... Max HP is 10. Attack is 4. They will try to hop up and bonk you... They look almost exactly like your garden-variety Dark Goomba, so be careful...

Dark Headbonk Goombas are stronger versions of Headbonk Goombas in the game Super Paper Mario. They look exactly like regular Dark Goombas, only they attack with Headbonks. They are only found in room 95 of the Flopside Pit of 100 Trials, but they occur in large amounts in this room.

This is the last of the Dark enemies encountered in the pit, discounting Shadoo's four forms.

The Dark Headbonk Goomba's Catch Card is one of the only instances where text was changed between the North American and PAL region versions of the game. The NA version reads "They look like Dark Goombas, but they bonk!", but because "bonk" is a British slang term for sexual intercourse, the line was changed to "They look like Dark Goombas, but they're not!" in the PAL region.
