Goomba is the phonetic spelling of the term "cumpà", which is the way people from Southern Italy used to pronounce the word "compare", that is "godfather". From the original sense it was gradually extended to mean a friend, a partner, etc.
hey, goomba, what about a glass of wine?

1. One of the classic, easiest Mario enemies that is defeated once there is a jump applied to the head or a fireball shot at it. Sometimes, however, in Paper Mario, there is spiked Goombas that you cannot jump upon. In the classic games, they will not come after you but can still hurt.

2. A close buddy or friend who enjoys socializing with you.
1. That dang Goomba was what caused me to get Game Over.

2. Teacher yelling at kids: Listen, I know you all love to chat with your goombas over there, but what you should be doing is working on your vocabulary.

Forget all the rest of the meanings of goomba, this is what a goomba really is: a goon, a goof, a kook, or poser who doesn't physically resemble a goomba from Mario Bros. but acts just like one. You know a true goomba when you see one. For an example see "Mark Coviello"
Did you see that fool go over the falls on that small inside wave? What a gooooombaaaa! goomba....
