Big Tail Goombas (also called Grand Tail Goombas) are enemies appearing in Super Mario 3D Land and the Mario & Luigi series. They are Grand Goombas which have been empowered with the effects of the Super Leaf. Their attacks are similar to that of a regular-sized Tail Goomba but they can float much higher and their tail swing is much stronger and packs quite a wallop. Like the Grand Goombas, Big Tail Goombas are commonly no more durable than a regular Tail Goomba and any attack can be used to bring one down.

Profile

Physical description

Big Tail Goombas are large Goombas equipped with tails. They also almost always have an angry-like facial expressions.

History

Super Mario 3D Land

A Big Tail Goomba in World 1-1.

Big Tail Goombas (under the name Grand Tail Goomba for this game) first appeared in Super Mario 3D Land. They first appeared in World 1-1, but their most prominent role is in World 5-5. In said level, some will drop Tanooki Leafs when defeated. They behave identically to regular Tail Goombas but their tail swing is much stronger, has slightly larger range, and they can also fly higher than a Tail Goomba as well. Grand Tail Goombas however, are no more durable than their regular-sized counterparts and can be defeated with any attack.

Mario & Luigi series

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

Big Tail Goombas first appeared in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team in the Mario & Luigi series. They are only fought in Dreamy Neo Bowser Castle. Big Tail Goombas are also never seen on the overworld and are only seen in battle alongside Antasmen, Lakitu and Spinys.

Battle

Big Tail Goombas mainly attack by flying at Mario and then attempt to crash down on him. This attack can be counter-attacked with swinging the hammers.
