The Crinkled Goomba serves as an ally and enemy to the Mario brothers, helping them on some occasions (such as outright giving the Mario brothers Battle Cards) while hindering them on others (such as stealing the medallion necessary to enter Bowser's Castle). It is the family of Goombas (composed of Goompa, Gooma, Goompapa, Goomama, Goombaria, and Goombario) living in peaceful Goomba Village that first discovered Mario unconscious after the his initial defeat from Bowser. They are lured if they listened to the colorful notes from one of the players. Due to Mario Sports Superstars reusing Rosalina's golf animations from Mario Golf: World Tour, Lubba reappears in this game in the same capacity. At that point, the player can run into it to kick it and defeat it, releasing three Star Bits. A Goomba is one of the racers in Moped Mayhem. In the spirit battle, the player faces five tiny Donkey Kongs on the Battlefield form of the Mushroom Kingdom stage. Their behavior is the same as in the 3D Mario platforming games. They are commonly found in the Sunbeam Plains, several are fought during the mission Final Smash in Neo Bowser Castle, and one is fought alongside a Paper Goomba, a Koopa Troopa and a Paper Koopa Troopa as one of Bowser's last lines of defense. Bowser Jr., known in Japan as Koopa Jr. (not to be confused with Koopa Kid or Baby Bowser), is the secondary antagonist of the Mario series, and is the only child son of Bowser and the apparent heir of the Fire Kingdom. Lubba makes a cameo appearance in Mario Golf: World Tour in Rosalina's best post-hole animations. If they touch Yoshi, they knock Baby Mario off his back. They attack by charging into the player and can be defeated by attacking them or with a single stomp. Goombas appear in the background in Kart Wheeled, Dart Attack, Weight for It, and Light Speed. Goomba appears alongside Bowser, Bowser Jr., and their other minions in the opening scene, intent on becoming the Super Star of the party. Regardless of whether the former part of the attack was countered or not, if the Goomba wasn't defeated due to the counter-attack, it will then either run at the targeted Bro again or if the Goomba has stars around its head, it will charge into the Bro who wasn't targeted. Mewtwo in Smash 4 could count (depending on the source material) and Piranha Plant, Zombie, and Enderman in Ultimate are Mooks, but Sephiroth is the first to be explicitly villainous in nature. The Goomba then walks around the stage, damaging fighters until being defeated. The damage of a Goomba's thorn can be blunted by defending right before the projectile hits the party member. After the minigame, the Goomba gives the winner and second place runner up coins from his moneybag and will give a single coin to either the third or fourth placing players if the whole amount of coins taken can't be evenly divided by 2. If Mario's hammer is powerful enough, Goombas can be defeated out of battle with a First Strike in order to not enter into a fight. They also appear in Goomba Spotting and Goomba Village, the former involving counting the number of Goombas that pass by the player, and the latter involving trying to guess which Toad House contains the most Goombas. Regular Goombas oppose his efforts by slowly walking to closed doors and opening them (as well as generally just getting in Mario's way). Link can either jump on a Goomba to defeat it or slash it with his sword. Like a select few enemies, Goombas do not appear on the field, and can only be fought by getting into a battle with a Fly Guy or Durapurl. That's proof that we're Lord Bowser's favorites.
