Goombob, Mario Party Advance

Goombob is a rich young Goomba who appears in Mario Party Advance. He lives in Goombob Manor, a mansion located in the Town Area of Shroom City. One of the game's missions involves locating a seashell for him to give to his crush, Goombetty. Upon collecting the shell and giving it to him, Goombetty shows up at the Manor, and Goombob gives her the shell and asks her on a date. Goombetty accepts, and Goombob gives the player the Gaddget Dessert Menu. Goombob is also one of the three suspects when the Koopa Bank is robbed. He explained that he was so terrified, he stayed where he was. He then remembers that he heard the safe open. The ending of the game states that Goombob is considering moving to the beach with Goombetty.
