Big Goombas or Giant Goombas (デカクリボー, Giant Kuribo) are enemies from the Mario series.


Two Giant Goombas as they appear in New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

Big Goombas made their debut in Super Mario Bros. 3 as an enemy, and has become a recurring enemy in later Mario games. They are larger versions of the normal-sized Goombas. They can be easily defeated by jumping on them; however, in the New Super Mario Bros. series, when they are defeated by jumping, they split into smaller Goombas.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

As an enemy[edit]

Giant Goombas appear as enemies in The Subspace Emissary.

The Giant Goomba's behavior is similar to that of a Goomba, and they share the charge as their sole method of attack. Unlike their smaller counterparts, they are much more resilient, being able to sustain multiple blows and jumps on their heads before being defeated. Giant Goombas run faster when charging, and as expected, its charge attack is much more powerful, causing high damage and knockback. Giant Goombas also feature super armor to weaker attacks, which can make it difficult to stop a charging Giant Goomba.

Despite their high HP and power, Giant Goombas are still of relatively low threat. Having the same behavior as Goombas, their AI is rather basic, and they take much longer to begin their charge than regular Goombas do. When jumped on, they are also stunned for a sizable period of time while taking significant damage. Thus, they can be defeated with relative ease by simply jumping on their heads till they are defeated, which can easily prevent them from being able to begin their charge attack.

The Giant Goomba trophy can be obtained by using the Trophy Stand on a Giant Goomba in The Subspace Emissary.

A giant-sized Goomba, as the name suggests. In Super Mario 64, punching and kicking had no effect on this brute. It could be stopped like normal Goombas- by jumping on it from above. A colossal Goomba appeared as the boss of world four in New Super Mario Bros., but that's a Mega Goomba, not a Giant Goomba.

Giant Goombas, now referred to as Big Goombas, appear as enemies in Smash Run, reprising their behavior from The Subspace Emissary. They feature an attack where they stomp their feet down, which damages and trips the player. They can be easily defeated by attacking them normally or jumping on them three times. Despite their weakness, they drop above average power-ups.


The Big Goomba trophy appears in both versions. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, it is part of the New Super Mario Bros. Trophy Box.

Ntsc Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DSIt's a Goomba, only bigger! And much like normal Goombas, the worst they'll do is run at you. Unfortunately, their size actually makes this attack pretty dangerous! They can also stomp to knock you off your feet. They have a lot of health, but they take massive damage from being stomped on, just like a regular Goomba. Fortunate!
Pal Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DSIt's a Goomba, only bigger! And much like normal Goombas, the worst they'll do is run at you. Unfortunately, give their size, that actually puts you in a lot of danger. They can also stamp to knock you off your feet. They have a lot of health, but you can do major damage quickly just by stomping on them. Huzzah!
Super Smash Bros. for Wii UThese giant-sized Goombas make quite an impression. Some will net you a coin when you jump on them, and others will split up into smaller Goombas. They're often much stronger than normal Goombas, but jumping on them a few times usually does the trick. There's also an even bigger one out there: the Megasparkle Goomba. He's so shiny!
