Variant of Galoomba

Parachute Galoombas,[1] originally known as Para-Goombas (alternatively Paragoombas),[2] are Galoombas with parachutes that first appear in Super Mario World. They descend slowly from the sky on parachutes, and once they land, they act like normal Galoombas.

Para-Goombas also make a minor appearance in Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3, where they are found at the end of the World-e level Rich with Ropes.

Parachute Galoombas make a reappearance in Super Mario Maker 2. They can be made only in the Super Mario World style by placing a parachute on a Galoomba. Their descending animation is changed to resemble the Galoombas' swimming animation from the first Super Mario Maker.
