The Goomball is a variant of the Goomba from the Super Mario franchise. Appearing in Super Mario World, the Goomball is quite different from the standard Goomba in a number of ways. Instead of resembling a mushroom, it looks more like an overgrown chestnut. It still behaves in the same manner as standard Goombas, although it is much tougher. Mario cannot kill Goomballs with a standard jump, he can only knock them over. Mario can then kick a Goomball a short distance or pick it up, kicking it into another enemy and killing both. If left idle long enough, the Goomball will get up again and continue walking. Mario can kill Goomballs by spin-jumping on them, striking them with the Super Cape or shooting them with fireballs. Alternatively, Yoshi can eat them.
