Para-Goombas[1] (or Para-Goombahs)[2] are Flying Goombas with thorns on their heads that protect them from jump attacks. They appear in Mario Clash. To defeat them, Mario must hit them with a Turtle Shell at their sides from the background or foreground to stun them, then hit them again or kick them.

They also make a cameo appearance in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! and WarioWare Gold in the Mario Clash microgame.
