Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo (クリボー, "Chestnut People"), are an enemy species appearing throughout the Mario series. They first appeared in Super Mario Bros. as the first enemy Mario encounters. Brown and mushroom-like in appearance, Goombas are most commonly seen walking around the Mushroom World aimlessly, often as an obstacle.
The Goombas have lost...Again?! Is this our destiny?! To be trampled by oppressive feet for all eternity? No, we will definitely triumph next time! Yes, next time! The Goombas' fate is not defeat, but perseverance!
'Marching straight ahead into the enemy's feet!' Didn't you memorize that in Goomba boot camp?
