Shiny Goombas are a species of Goomba that debut in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. A Shiny Goomba looks like an ordinary Goomba, but they have a noticeable sheen, much like those of shiny stickers. Shiny Goombas appear in four levels: Snow Rise, Ice Flow, Whiteout Valley, and Bowser Jr.'s Flotilla. Unlike normal Goombas, Shiny Goombas battle in groups of three or more. All stickers used against them (besides Things) have their damage halved. Just like an ordinary Goomba, Shiny Goombas attack by headbonking Mario, but they spiral in the air before making contact, causing this headbonk attack to be much slower. Shiny Paragoombas will have their wings fall off and transform into Shiny Goombas if they are jumped on but not defeated.
