Galoomba (originally Goombos, Goombes and Goombas) are round Goombas in Super Mario World. In Super Mario World and Mario Party Advance they are called simply Goomba (and still Kuribōn in Japan). When they are stomped, they are flipped over and immobile instead of defeated. It has also appeared in New Super Mario Sunshine as an enemy. This time you have to flip them over and stomp on to defeat. In some 3D games, they roll down steep hills towards Mario. Galoombas reappeared in Goomsday Wii, apparently saved from extinction by the Scepter of Superiority. Once again, they were rolling down the hills to crush Waluigi. In Super Mario Evolution they appeared as an enemy.
Their next appearence was in Paper Mario: Sticker Festival. They are the weakest enemies in the game and have many subspecies. After that, they appeared as an early enemy in Kirby RPG and the Infinity Shard.
- Goomba's original name, Kuribo, is Japanese for chestnut people. Galoombas look more like (pelted) chestnuts than Goombas self, which are based off mushrooms. However, their Japanese name is Kuribon.
- In Super Mario World, they have just the same name as Goombas.
