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". In fact, he helps Mario by disposing of a bunch of Battle Trunks that the plumber picked up in the Glitz Pit. An issue of the RDM later states that he attacked the Pianta Exchanger at the Pianta Parlor in anger, causing the parlor to temporarily shut down. Goomfrey also wears a hat similar to Link from The Legend of Zelda games.


  • 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.
