Flying Goomba is the winged version of a Galoomba, much like how Paragoomba is the winged version of a Goomba. Like Paragoombas, Flying Goombas jump around using their wings. Once stomped on, they lose their wings and change back into normal Galoombas.
In A Super Mario World
A Flying Goomba appears in the McLeodGaming cartoon A Super Mario World, where it briefly appears in the first episode as one of the monsters that Mario fights with the Master Sword. It flies through the air and towards Mario before being stabbed by the Master Sword and impaled on a Spiny, killing it.
A Flying Goomba also appears briefly in the credits of the third episode as one of the enemies fighting Link. It quickly approaches him before being immediately defeated with the Master Sword.
Flying Goombas are the second most prominent enemies, with Koopa Troopas being the first, to appear in the level Super Mario World. Their attack pattern is the same to all the airborne enemies in SSF, such as Beezleys or Buzzers; it has to make collision with the player in order to damage him. They are very weak enemies as one single attack is enough to get rid of them. A very notable difference between Flying Goombas found in Super Mario World and Flying Goombas found in SSF is that Flying Goombas in SSF will not lose their wings if they are stomped, or more specific, attacked; unlike those in Super Mario World. Also in SSF, Flying Goombas are able to fly freely while in Super Mario World the only thing they did was make small hops.
Flying Goomba is the only enemy in SSF to have a custom animation. When it is defeated, a Flying Goomba with cross-shaped eyes can be seen.
