Goomez, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Goomez is a Goomba who appears in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. His name is a portmanteau of "Goomba" and "Gomez". He is a very minor character encountered in Rogueport's west side. Goomez enjoys lounging in the pleasant, grassy area around Rogueport's fountain. He is mentioned in RDM Issue 4 where it talked about his embarrassment of falling asleep and accidentally eating the flowers. In that issue, he is revealed to be 40 years old.


  • "That's Goomez, the Goomba, He must be totally tired. He's ALWAYS resting here. Who can blame him, though? We could all use some downtime, am I right?"
