Goro[1] is the fourth boss that Toad faces in Game B of Round Mode in the Nintendo Entertainment System version of the game Wario's Woods. He is a gorilla-like golem made out of an unknown rocky material. Goro makes his appearance in the thirty ninth round of the game; he has twelve hit points, which requires Toad to bomb the boss twelve times.

His special move is a mighty stomp that brings the Thwomp on the top of the tree hollow battlefield down a few notches. He is also able to re-locate himself to any part of the battlefield through some means of teleportation and throw enemies around the field. If he re-materializes on Toad, he will instantly defeat him.
