Goombaria is Goombario's younger sister from the game Paper Mario. She discovers an unconscious Mario after his initial defeat at the hands of Bowser (and his Star Rod). After telling her family, Mario is brought to a Toad House to recover. Goombaria usually hangs in Goomba Village. Goombaria had also lost her Dolly. If Mario returns it to her, she will give him a Star Piece and a kiss.
Later in the game, Mario receives a letter from her, where she expresses her curiosity about his adventure with Goombario. She also says that she sometimes goes shopping in Toad Town with mom, which she does after Chapter 5. At the end of Chapter 7 they returned to Goomba Village. At the end of the game, Goombaria and her family is invited to the party at Peach's Castle.
In a similar manner to how Goombario's name is a portmanteau of Goomba and Mario, Goombaria's name would appear to be a combination of Goomba and the name Maria. It may also, however, simply be a more feminine-sounding variation of Goombario's name. Additionally, her Japanese name is Kuriko, which combines the Goombas' Japanese name (Kuribo) with ko, a Japanese name ending meaning child, which is often used for female names.
