This isn't their official name. If it where is the source of the name?NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png

There's no sources for the name, as of now.

I made the article conjectural. Are you guys happy now?

Electrical Bowser jr. (talk) 13:55, 27 July 2012 (EDT)Electrical Bowser jr.

P.S. Could someone make an article for Undead Piranha Plant?

Does this have enough information to be a non stub now?? Pseudo-dino (talk)

I think they should be called "Skull Goombas" because they're not necessarily "undead", they're just regular blue Goombas wearing skulls. KoopaKiller13 (talk) 22:59, 27 July 2012 (EDT)

I agree. Pseudo-dino (talk)
Me too. Shall I rename the article? Lakituthequick.png Lakituthequick 07:06, 31 July 2012 (EDT)

Why don't call this enemy "Dry Goomba" and the undead Piranha Plant, "Dry Piranha Plant"? Cherry_totodile (talk)

Why don't we wait for the official Prima guide to come out? Raven Effect (talk)

Happy?The official name is Dry Goomba.The souce is

Yeah, that's just a fan name. Technickal (talk)

Move to Skull Goomba[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

do not rename 15-18
Undead Goomba: to be more precise, the name should be used if the enemy was undead.

Skull Goomba: This name is more correct than the first one—if you look at the artwork, you see nothing but an underground Goomba with a skull on its head.

What we shall do, keep the current name or move to the more correct one?

Move to Skull Goomba[edit]

Mario4Ever (talk) While I think that it would be best to wait for the Prima guide or another official source to provide a name, in the meantime, we may as well provide the article with a name that more accurately describes it (from what I can gather, the "undead" distinction describes enemies that look similar to Dry Bones, such as the Undead Piranha Plant, which this enemy does not).

  1. MarioSmasher (talk) – The name is more appropiate. Per proposal.
  2. MarioManiac164 (talk) – Skull Goomba is much more fitting.
  3. Ultra Koopa (talk) – I totally agree. There's no sense in "Undead Goomba".
  4. Lakituthequick (talk) I already thought about "Skull Goomba" a while ago, and these Goomba's aren't undead.
  5. Loxo (talk) Per proposal
  6. YoshiGo99 (talk) How would we know if someone will get the Prima guide? What if it doesn't even have the full list of enemies in it?
  7. YoshiKong (talk) Still conjectural, but it does seem like a more fitting name.
  8. DonnyKD (talk) - This enemy just looks like a Gloomba with a skull mask, so "Undead Goomba" doesn't make sense.
  9. KoopaKiller13 (talk) - My suggestion.
  10. DoctorMario (talk) - Per all.
  11. IGGY7735 (talk) - Per all.
  12. Spenzer66 (talk) - Per all.
  13. Exo (talk) - Per all.
  14. Pseudo-dino (talk) - Per all. It's clearly not undead.
  15. MegaKoopa (talk) - Per all. We need a fitting title until the official name be revealed.

Leave to Undead Goomba[edit]

  1. Raven Effect (talk) There is no point in moving the name in a month or so the official Prima guide will come out and we will just move the article to what ever it calls them.
  2. Electrical Bowser jr. (talk) Per Raven Effect.
  3. GreenDisaster (talk) Per Raven.
  4. Tails777 (talk) Per Raven Effect.
  5. Mercury Mech (talk) Per Raven Effect.
  6. JORDAN DEBONO (talk) Per Raven Effect
  7. Walkazo (talk) - Per Raven Effect. Why update everything twice when we can do it once, all because one arbitrary placeholder name is a little "better" than our current conjecture?
  8. Vommack (talk) Per Raven.
  9. Prince Ludwig (talk) That's just a waste of time. Per Raven Effect.
  10. MarioMaster2011 (talk) Per Raven Effect. The Prima guide will be out in a couple weeks just wait until then.
  11. Technickal (talk) Per Raven. Let's just wait and see.
  12. Glowsquid (talk) per everyone.
  13. BabyLuigiOnFire (talk) Per all
  14. Bop1996 (talk) Per Raven Effect.
  15. Master R.O.B (talk) Per all.
  16. MrConcreteDonkey (talk) – Per all.
  17. Mario4Ever (talk) Per all.
  18. MushroomMan3 (talk) Per all.


Wait, so the Goombas are alive? Zakor1138 (talk) 23:33, 31 July 2012 (EDT)

Yes. Watch this vid on YouTube and skip to 0:22. Lakituthequick.png Lakituthequick 04:43, 1 August 2012 (EDT)

@YoshiGo99 then we can move the page to something like this but until then it's irreverent to move it to anything. Raven Effect (talk)

I am still going with the move but I think we should still have a temporary name until the official name is out. Undead Goomba makes it seem more like a dead Goomba like Dry Bones but it's not, and the name Skull Goomba gives it more of what it is like. YoshiGo99 (talk)

I did not say in the proposal "Skull Goomba" is "WAY BETTER!!". I just told that the name is more correct, period. Plus, chances are that the Prima guide may use the same name, no more. …this proposal should be cancelled for its stupidity. ._. --NewSMBU (talk) 04:21, 7 August 2012 (EDT)

Bad name![edit]

I say we should call it Skull Goomba or Skull Gloomba.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by MarioManiac164 (talk).

I think we should wait until they give an OFFICIAL name to the enemy. Zakor1138 (talk) 23:31, 31 July 2012 (EDT)
You see this category? Do we have to wait till all off these objects/characters have official names? No, we don't, thats why we give conjectural names to unknowns. Lakituthequick.png Lakituthequick 04:49, 1 August 2012 (EDT)
But most of those things wont get official names this one will in like a month... Raven Effect (talk)
Still we need names during the time there aren't any officials. Lakituthequick.png Lakituthequick 10:18, 1 August 2012 (EDT)
Jeez, Lakitu. The way you posted your comment made it look like you're mad at me or something. Zakor1138 (talk) 12:55, 1 August 2012 (EDT)
You are not the first to say that, I'm not the best in talking (kindly) to people. I tempt to make things clear above being kind. Lakituthequick.png Lakituthequick 06:24, 2 August 2012 (EDT)
If the upcoming Prima guide does not give an official name, but an official name is to be found in a later appearance, then {{part conjecture}} should be used. As for now, we should decide on the conjectural title via the proposal.

That's.... kind of jerkish, Lakitu. No wonder they are the bad guys most of the time. Zakor1138 (talk) 14:17, 2 August 2012 (EDT)
Can we stop the conversation here before it escalates too far? GreenDisaster (talk) 14:21, 2 August 2012 (EDT)

I don't think it's going to go to the point where they start throwing swear words at each other.

Dry Goomba[edit]

I believe we should have the title as "Dry Goomba" like Dry Bones and Dry Bowser.

Problem is, it's not a skeletal Goomba, but a Goomba wearing a skull helmet BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
Lets just wait until the prima guide comes out, where the name for the undead Goomba and the Piranha Plant will be shown.--MarioMaster2011 (talk) 00:21, 6 August 2012 (EDT)

Official Name[edit]

Alright, Prima guide is out. Anyone have one? Technickal (talk)

Seems like Bone Goomba and Bone Piranha Plant are the official names according to Tails777.--Prince Ludwig (talk) 16:39, 19 August 2012 (EDT)


Theese are like gloombas with a mask.World 6 (talk) 03:12, 3 September 2012 (EDT)

Their official names are Bone Goombas however, regardless of what they look like. JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 03:19, 3 September 2012 (EDT)


I don't think they're really undead. If versions of them without skulls appear in World Flower, then technically they aren't dead- they're just blue Goombas (probably Gloombas) with a skull hat. I think we should remove the undead category. --Peanutjon (talk) 15:26, 14 September 2012 (EDT)

I aggre with Peanutjon. These are not undead goombas. They just have a skull mask.World 6 (talk) 04:50, 19 September 2012 (EDT)
