"I'll make a wish to the stars for you to have good luck."
Goompapa is the father of Goombario and Goombaria, and the husband of Goomama. He only appears in Paper Mario. He also happens to be a fishing friend with Muss T., Koover, and Fishmael. His name is a referance to "goomba" and "papa."
At the beginning of the game, he can be seen fixing the gate to Goomba Road. Eventually, Kammy Koopa destroys the gate by dropping a large block on it to stop Mario from going any further. He becomes angered but happy after Mario finds Goompa and destroys the block.
- He's my dad, Goompapa. He's willing to do anything for us. We can always count on him. He doesn't look like it, though. But did you see him fixing stuff after that earthquake? That's when I knew he was cool.
