Octogoombas (also known as Octoombas, Electrogoombas, or Electroombas) are enemies that first appeared in Luigi's Mansion 4: Haunted Dreams and later appeared in Luigi's Mansion 5: Curse of the Mansion. They are aliens and are common in most mansions of both games. They are most likely a combination of Goomba and octopus, which also make up their current name.
Luigi's Mansion 4: Haunted DreamsEdit
In the Luigi's Mansion series, Octogoombas make their debut in Luigi's Mansion 4: Haunted Dreams. They appear in many mansion throughout the game, making them one of the most common enemies of the game. Should Luigi get near an Octogoomba, it will try to headbutt him with its antenna stuck to its head. When an Octogoomba is defeated, it will produce three Ghost Combs (if they are defeated by being sucked up) or it will produce a coin (if they were defeated by being jumped on). Two other species are known as Octoguys and Octopi make an appearance.
Luigi's Mansion 5: Curse of the MansionEdit
Octogoombas make a reappearance in Luigi's Mansion 5: Curse of the Mansion, where they are once again common enemies. Unlike in Haunted Dreams, they do not just try to headbutt Luigi, but instead, they also spit rocks, much like Octoguys. Additionally, a new species is introduced: Elite Octogoombas.
Luigi's Mansion 6: U Are Doomed!!Edit
