Goompa is a character from Paper Mario.


Goompa is the grandfather of the Goomba Family. He is found outside of the Goomba House fixing the veranda. After the earthquake caused by Kammy Koopa, the veranda falls along with him. After attempting to go onto the veranda to find him, Mario falls to the ground as well.

Once in Jr. Troopa's Playground, Goompa explains to Mario that they must find the Hammer. Once Mario finds the Hammer and Goombaria's Peach doll, Goompa and Mario attempt to leave the forest. Interrupted by Jr. Troopa who claims that the land is his and wants a fight, Goompa helps Mario out by couching him on the sidelines during the fight. If Mario chooses to do one of Koopa Koot's favors, he asks him to retrieve his Tape that Goompa has.


In a similar manner to how Goombario's name is a portmanteau of "Goomba" and "Mario," Goompa's name would appear to be a combination of "Goomba" and the name "Pa," another word for "grandfather."
