Elite Goombule is a sub-species of a Goombule which is a sub-species of a Goomba whom appear in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.

Only two are found in the game and can be found after obtaining all ten Attack Pieces in the Trash Pit which converts to a Green Shell attack.

These enemies are immune to jumps or hammer attacks, since they wear black shell-like helmets to protect them. They must be attacked by Green Shells to be defeated. After these two enemies are defeated, no more of them are encountered for the rest of the game. These enemies appear to be blue with a green orb in the center of them.

They sometimes drop a Mushroom or Syrup once defeated.
