- "Chosen by its fellow minions to lead them in battle, Captain Goomba must recruit an army, defeat the enemy, and rescue Lord Bowser."
- ― Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions website
Captain Goomba, with the name Goomba, is a regular Goomba identical to other Goombas. While recruiting the crew, Goomba had a new appearance with a red flag on his head. The red flag has a yellow outline, yellow ornament and a metal pole connected to a yellow collar. The collar sticks onto Goomba's head.
Captain Goomba is an enthusiastic and determined leader. At the start of Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser, its fellow minions mention to Captain Goomba with the "aura of stupidity". Throughout the story, Captain Goomba gained trust from Bowser's minions. After rescuing Bowser, Ludwig von Koopa gained trust from Captain Goomba.
The Search for Bowser
Inside Koopa Cruiser
- "Let's band in together next time. Strength in numbers and all."
- ― Goomba, Koopa CruiserBy the name, Goomba, is affiliated with the Koopa Troop who was present in the group before boarding the Koopa Cruiser. The Koopa Troop blocked Luigi's path who was mistaken to be part of the troop. After everyone attended the cruiser, the Koopa Cruiser flew to the skies.
Meanwhile, Mario and Luigi encountered a Koopa Troopa who is struggling to capture Goomba and the other Goomba. Koopa Troopa asked Mario and Luigi to help him capture them, Koopa Troopa also taught Mario and Luigi how to battle them. After defeating the two Goombas, Koopa Troopa managed to trap them inside separate Barrels as Mario and Luigi left the room.
Goomba and Goomba quietly complained about Mario and Luigi stomping on them "again", whispering to each other to "band together next time" and up their game". Koopa Troopa hears them whispering and demands them to "keep quiet". Roy Koopa, Wendy O. Koopa and Iggy Koopa arrives to Koopa Troopa; Roy asked if he has finished, which Koopa replies that he finished. The three Koopalings walked closer to the barrels and mocked the Goombas. Another Koopa alerts Roy, Wendy and Iggy about the Koopa Cruiser is under attack. Unfortunately, after Bowser helped Mario and Luigi battle against Fawful, Fawful destroyed the Koopa Cruiser, resulting the Koopa Cruiser to explode that sent attendees flying off into different locations.
- "One lone Goomba with ample gumption, who has been knocked unconscious in a far-off land is in for a rude awakening..."
- ― Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser story
Goomba who was inside the barrel has crashed into a cave that was between Stardust Fields and Hoohoo Village. From his rude awakening, Goomba woke up and looked around inside the cave questioning where he was, Bowser and his minions. Goomba calls to question anyone nearby, realizing that he was alone and had no idea where he was. By surprise, Goomba heard the rumbling outside and decided to check.
Goomba realized he was on Hoohoo Mountain and wondered if there are minions nearby and was hoping that Bowser was alright. Goomba was shocked to see Bowser in the sky, who had been launched out of the cannon by the green Starshade Bro off-screen. Goomba was about to rush for Bowser, but decided to "excerise" before doing anything else.
Goomba spooked the Beanie referring it as "freaky monstrosity", offending the Beanie. With Goomba realizing it can talk, the Beanie was irritated for its "ignorance". Goomba realized that it "came out wrong", and decided to complement it by referring it as a "great" bean rather than a "weird bean". The Beanie assumed Goomba was joking and declared a battle. Goomba reminded himself that he is used to fighting Mario, so he will "keep bashing" his opponents.
Recruiting the crew
- "Whatever it is, I promise to rise to the challenge!"
- ― Captain Goomba, Hoohoo Mountain
Goomba found the other Goombas discussing who will be the captain; Goomba was joyful and ran to the group. Goomba settled the conversation saying that they are "bound by honor". Goomba was eager to venture his minions, even the Goomba mentioned about him being "chummy so quickly" is not "very Minion-y". Other Goombas decided to include him in the squad with the "super special position".
Goomba has changed to his different appearance with a red flag on his head. Goomba and his minions agreed to find more of their minions to rebuild their squad. However, Goomba was puzzled the flag on his head, disappointingly surprised the minions. One of the Goombas told him that he is the captain; this gave him the name Captain Goomba. Captain Goomba began to lead the troop.
Captain Goomba and the three Goombas discussed their strategy to take down the opposing squad's captain. After defeating the Beanies, the Goomba squad recruited two Goombas.
Recruiting Hammer Bros.
Captain Goomba found two Hammer Bros. with Hammerhead Bros.. Captain Goomba informed the Hammer Bros. that "Bowser is in big trouble". The Hammerhead Bros. and Hammer Bros. misunderstood Captain Goomba's statement; the Hammer Bros. declared a battle. The Goombas learned about the three units: Ranged, Flying and Melee. Goombas understood that Melee troopers (Goomba) can outclass Ranged troopers (Hammer Bro).
After the Goombas defeated the Hammer Bros., Hammer Bros. joined Captain Goomba's crew. Hammerhead Bros. gave advice to Captain Goomba before the crew left.
Captain Goomba attempted to recruit the Paragoombas. However, the Paragoombas assumed it to be an enemy. After defeating the Paragoombas, the Paragoombas were free from brainwash. Captain Goomba questioned them. The Paragoombas explained their story: they attempted to protect Bowser from Fawful. Fawful brainwashed them into thinking that Fawful is their master. The Paragoombas confirmed that Fawful brainwashed Bowser. Furious Captain Goomba ran to Fawful.
Meeting Ludwig and Lemmy
- "If I go and save Lord Bowser myself... the Koopalings might change their minds about me."
- ― Captain Goomba, Hoohoo MountainCaptain Goomba's crew defeated their enemies and recruited the Bob-ombs. Captain Goomba met Ludwig von Koopa and Lemmy Koopa. Captain Goomba informed the Koopalings that "Bwser went flying towards the mountain" and "a weird guy with odd verbiage might spray" them. Confused, they ignored him and continued their own path. Captain Goomba considered if he rescued Bowser by himself, "the Koopalings might change their minds about [him]".
Meeting Private Goomp and Fawful
Captain Goomba defeated Private Goomp's army. Private Goomp was freed from brainwash; Captain Goomba recognised Private Goomp (one of the Gooombas trapped in the barrel at the Koopa cruiser). Before Captain Goomba could take action for Bowser, Fawful launched the two Goombas.
Captain Goomba fell onto Hoohoo Village and woke up. Captain Goomba asked Hoohooligan "[the] way to the castle", the Hoohooligan told it that they are at the base of the mountain. Captain Goomba jumps off the mountain and injured itself.
Heading to the Beanbean Kingdom
Captain Goomba lead his troop towards the Beanbean Kingdom. Captain Goomba recruited Shy Guys and met Shy Guy. It plots to unbrainwash Bowser's minions. Shy Guy and Captain Goomba joined forces; Shy Guy gained the title, Captain Shy Guy. Lakitu carried Goomba and Shy Guy and dropped them to their destination near Beabean Kingdom. Lakitu promised to help Captain Goomba scout for the minions. Captain Goomba and Captain Shy Guy witness Larry take Lakitu. After Goomba fought Larry's army, Captain Goomba and Captain Shy Guy rescued Lakitu and Larry left. Captain Goomba learnt Fawful brainwashed the Koopalings. Captain Goomba considered that they should be stronger than the Koopalings before freeing them from brainwash.
