For Goomba Village minigame in Mario Party 9, see Goomba Village (Mini-game).

Goomba Village is a village inhabited by the Goombas in Paper Mario.


Goomba Village is the first major location Mario visits in this game after being knocked out of Princess Peach's Castle by Bowser after he lifted it into the sky. It is only populated by a family of Goombas and a Toad who runs the Toad House.

Mario can get Goomnuts here by hitting the tree with a Hammer. This is also the location where Mario gets his hammer.

The village acts as the tutorial for the game, as Mario learns about battles, items, badges, and various other information.

Mario can also take a blue Warp Pipe that is located in Toad Town Tunnels to reach Goomba Village faster and easier.
