Grombas are rock-like Goombas that appear in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. As they are encountered early in the game, Grombas are not very powerful, and their stats are quite low compared to other enemies. In the field, Grombas have a tendency to trip while walking about, and don't to chase Mario or Luigi upon sight like most other enemies. In one room of Pi'illo Castle, many Grombas are seen marching in a circle to form a propeller-like formation.

In battle, Grombas attack in two ways: After running up to Mario or Luigi, they will either trip and roll towards them, or dig out a rock with their feet and kick it at them. Both attacks can be dodged by jumping, but the former can also be countered. Sometimes, one will approach the bros. between them and roll towards the one that it faces, which can be used as a "tell" as to which bro. it is targeting.
