Goomfrey, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Goomfrey is a 30-year-old[1] Goomba who lives in Rogueport. His name is a portmanteau of "Goomba" and the male name "Geoffrey". He resides near Professor Frankly's house in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Goomfrey is a pretty shady character who makes a living by "eliminating problems," and talks in a manner similar to a hitman. However, he ends up helping Mario by disposing of a bunch of Battle Trunks that Mario picked up in the Glitz Pit as part of the Help wanted! trouble. An issue of the RDM states that he attacked the Pianta Exchanger at the Pianta Parlor in anger, causing the parlor to temporarily shut down.


  • Tattle: "That's Goomfrey the Goomba. He looks kind of shady, I guess, but he's cool. People call him a "fixer." Y'know, a guy that can make any problem...just go away."
