Variant of Goomba

Goombas on swim rings appear in Super Mario 3D World and its Nintendo Switch port Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. They first appear in the level Pipeline Lagoon, and are also seen in Sprawling Savanna Rabbit Run. Normally, they are sleeping peacefully in the water, but if the player gets close, they wake up and try to attack the player and damage the player if they touch them.

Goombas on swim rings return in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, appearing in water levels such as Floaty Fun Water Park and Goomba Galleon. They behave the same as in Super Mario 3D World.
