Goompapa is the father of Goombario and Goombaria and the husband of Goomama in Paper Mario. He is also fishing friends with Muss T., Koover, and Fishmael.

In the beginning of the game in Goomba Village he can be seen fixing the gate to Goomba Road. Soon Kammy Koopa will appear and destroy the gate with a block. Goompapa has a fit and Mario will need the Hammer to progress.

There is a letter to Goompapa below a cliff in Mt. Rugged. After Mario and Parakarry send the letter to Goompapa, he will give them another letter to Muss T. After that is a long delivery chain. At the end of the chain is another letter to Goompapa. After this, he will give the two Lucky Day badge and praise the delivery service.


  • He's my dad, Goompapa. He's willing to do anything for us. We can always count on him. He doesn't look like it, though. But did you see him fixing stuff after that earthquake? That's when I knew he was cool.
