Latest appearance New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (2019)
Variant of Goomba

Goombas[1] attached to floating balloons appear in New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. They are basic enemies attached to balloons, acting similarly to the Parachute Galoombas of Super Mario World except floating from the opposite direction. Balloon Goombas appear only in the Sparkling Waters stage Skyward Stalk, where six of them are found. They float on balloons straight upwards from the bottom of the screen. When a Goomba's balloon pops, it begins walking like a normal Goomba. Mario can jump off the balloons for extra height.
