Octoombas are creatures that bear a resemblance to Goombas. However, they distinguish themselves with their unique ability to spit rocks.
Octoombas are characterized by their blue bodies adorned with several yellow spots. They possess funnel-shaped mouths, which they use for spitting rocks. Their heads are topped with antennae, and they move by hopping side to side on their three rounded feet. Their eyes glow and are set deep into their faces, giving them a constant scowl.
