Goombette[1] is a female Goomba from the game Super Mario Odyssey. She is pink, similar to Goombella and Goombaria, and has a distinct blush, eyelashes, and a hat similar to Pauline's. She also holds Power Moons; to get them, Mario must capture a Goomba and approach her. If she is standing on a raised ledge, Mario must hop on other Goombas to make a Goomba Tower high enough to reach the ledge she stands on. At this point, she becomes romantically charmed, and gives Mario a Power Moon while surrounded by hearts. If Mario approaches her in his normal form or aims at her after capturing a Sherm, she will panic for a split second before disappearing in a puff of smoke. After Mario leaves the area or lets go of the Sherm, she will return with the same purple effect that signifies a respawning enemy, despite her not being an actual enemy.

After the main story is completed, two Goombettes can be found in the Sand Kingdom at the same time, implying that she is not an individual character, but simply how a generic female Goomba looks. This is supported by the Japanese name, which is the generic description of "Girl Kuribō."
