"Goombit the Great"
First Appearance Paper Mario: The Shards of Time

Goombit is a character who debuts in Paper Mario: The Shards of Time. He is a practicing magician who specializes in card tricks. He is also the first Party Member to be recruited; he is recruited in Toad Town, after Bowser kidnaps Peach.


Goombit first appears around the beginning of Chapter 1, where he is seen practicing his card tricks for a small crowd of people. Unfortunately, he doesn't do a very good job, and the disgruntled crowd soon disperses. He laments to Mario that he wanted to perform for the princess at her party, which is why he was practicing. He worries that he won't be good enough to impress her, however.

After Bowser shows up and kidnaps Peach, Goombit is the first person to approach Mario. He tells the plumber that he saw Bowser heading in the direction of the Midnight Forest. Mario quickly prepares to leave, but Goombit stops him and asks if he can accompany Mario. Mario agrees, and the two head towards their first stop; Koopa Village.

Physical DescriptionEdit

Goombit looks like any other Goomba, except he wears a plain cloak, and has black hair. He also has a single, downward-pointing fang sticking out of his mouth.


His Field Ability tells Mario about the world around him. Approaching an NPC (to make a miniature speech bubble appear over their heads) and using Goombit's Ability will tell Mario about that person. This Ability is also used in battle to reveal the enemy's HP as well as record their stats in the Tattlelog.

Goombit aspires to be the Mushroom Kingdom's greatest magician. Unfortunately, he tends to lose his focus rather easily. Despite this, he has a kind heart, and loves to make people smile and entertain them with his magic tricks.
