Card Description
A Goomba that thrives in dank, depressing holes. A strict all-mushroom diet makes this guy extra fungal.
This is a Gloomba, a Goomba that lives its entire life underground... Max HP is 2 and Attack is 2. It doesn't see a lot of sun, so it's a little pale... But it is stronger than your average Goomba...and has a very dark personality... It must be hard to be a pale, friendless Goomba that lives underground...

Not to be confused with Galoomba.

Gloombas are blue Goombas that appear in the Paper Mario series. Gloombas live deep underground, in areas such as Toad Town Tunnels and the Pit of 100 Trials. These Goombas are much more powerful than their surface-dwelling cousins. The coloration of Gloombas resemble that of the Goombas found in underground levels in Super Mario Bros. which, according to their Catch Card description, is the result of their living without sunlight.

In the Prima Super Paper Mario strategy guide, it is stated that Gloombas can poison the player, although this is false.[1]

Log A Goomba that likes dark, damp places. It must look like that because it lives below ground!
Tattle That's a Gloomba. It likes dark, damp places. Max HP is 7, Attack is 3, and Defense is 0. It's stronger than a normal Goomba, so be careful. That's not a healthy color for a Goomba, but it doesn't mean it's sick or anything. So don't show any mercy!
