Intimidating last names
After a long absence, Galoombas reappear in Super Mario 3D World, alongside regular Goombas and a bigger variation named Big Galoomba.Like normal Goombas in 3D Mario games, they attempt to chase after the player upon seeing them.They also lack a stem; the Galoomba's two feet are attached directly to the bottom of the head.As such, they resemble chestnuts more than mushrooms.Galoombas (named "Goombas" in Super Mario World) are somewhat rare enemies from Super Mario World.They either walk across the ground, parachute from above or float down in bubbles (which burst upon coming into contact with any object), or can even appear with wings to hop around.Para-Goombas are Galoombas which utilize parachutes instead of being Goombas with wings.Flying Goombas (wing-bearing Galoombas) also appear, and can only hop on the ground instead of fly.
Many female actors retain their maiden names for professional purposes when they get married, since an important part of an actor's marketing is his or her name.
Running into them or jumping on them when flipped causes them to be kicked around (though they do not ricochet, like shells do).
After a few seconds they right themselves, which damages Mario if he is carrying one.
They first appear in "The Wheel Thing", in which they are shown as being the "power source" for the cars made by Mario and Luigi.
Galoombas also briefly appear in "The Yoshi Shuffle" in the audience during the football game.
Like Paragoombas, Flying Goombas' wings are clipped after one stomp, reverting them to normal Galoombas, and thus, stomping on them after their wings are gone just renders them helpless for a few moments, allowing the player to throw them at other enemies.
