Variant of Hyper Goomba

A Hyper Paragoomba (or H. Paragoomba) is a green Paragoomba with the ability to charge its attack power to increase it to eight points. When attacked once, they will lose their wings and become regular Hyper Goombas.


Paper Mario[edit]

Sprite of a Hyper Paragoomba, from Paper Mario.

In Paper Mario, Hyper Paragoombas are found alongside Hyper Goombas in Gusty Gulch, though unlike normal Hyper Goombas they are only found outside. Like other Paragoomba types, they try to dive into Mario on the overworld. Like with normal Hyper Goombas, Goombario suggests becoming transparent if he sees one charging its attacks.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door[edit]

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Hyper Paragoombas are found along Twilight Trail, where they again appear alongside Hyper Goombas and act mostly the same as before, barring some base statistic increases.

Tattle This is a Hyper Paragoomba. Hyper Paragoombas are Hyper Goombas with wings. Max HP: 7, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 0 They sometimes charge their power before attacking. That charged attack will take away 8 HP, so watch out when they start to glow. It'll miss you if you can become transparent. Except for that, they're no different from normal Paragoombas, so use a Jump attack to defeat 'em.

Log When this winged Hyper Goomba charges up, its attack power rises to 8
Tattle That's a Hyper Paragoomba. It's basically just a Hyper Goomba with wings. Max HP is 8, Attack is 2, and Defense is 0. After charging up, you'll be dealing with moves that have an Attack power of 8. Once you damage it, it'll lose its wings and turn into a regular Hyper Goomba. Not that THAT'S all that cool. Even normal Hyper Goombas are dangerous.
