Hyper Goombas are hyperactive, green-colored Goombas that appear in the Paper Mario series.


Hyper Goombas have the uncanny ability to charge their attack power up from their normal 2, to a deadly 6. Their hit point value is also much higher than a regular Goomba's too.


Paper Mario

In Paper Mario, Hyper Goombas appear in the third chapter, but only in the second half, at Gusty Gulch. Along the road to Tubba Blubba's Castle, Mario encounters this enemy as well as its evolved forms, the Hyper Spiky Goomba and Hyper Paragoomba. A few Hyper Goombas could also be found in Windy Mill.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Hyper Goombas' appearance and abilities don't change. However, they are more powerful in both their hit points and attack strength. To compensate this increase, the Hyper line of enemies don't appear until chapter 4 of the game, rather than chapter 3. They can found on the Twilight Trail.

Tattle This is a Hyper Goomba. Hyper Goombas are crazy, uncivilized Goombas living in Gusty Gulch. Max HP: 7, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 0 They sometimes charge their power before attacking. That charged attack will take away 8 HP, so watch out when they start to glow. It's a good idea to use Bow or an item to become transparent. The attack will miss for sure.
