New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Prickly Goombas first appear in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, where they are encountered only in World 9-7. The players will sustain damage if they jump on their spiked shells. Prickly Goombas will remain stationary until their shells are burned open with a single fireball, thus reverting them to regular Goombas. They can also be frozen by ice balls.
New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U / New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

They retain the same behavior from their previous appearance. In New Super Luigi U, Prickly Goombas are encountered in Fire and Ice. They can be walked on by Yoshi.
