* The very first enemy the player is likely to face in the ''VideoGame/{{Stormwinds}}'' WebGame series is a small helicopter drone that has very little health and no attacks at all. Its small size makes it hard to hit, however.

* Waddle Dee fill this role in the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series. Only capable of basic CollisionDamage, they are more likely to serve as ammo for Kirby to spit at enemies than anything else. Bronto Burt, although they [[AirbornMook can fly]], aren't much stronger.

* Octoroks fulfill this function in many ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]'' games. Chu Chus seem to have joined them, as of late.
** For the UsefulNotes/GameCube additions: Octoroks were rare in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', and absent in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' (for the first time ever in ''Zelda'' history).
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', the Octoroks are replaced with strange creatures resembling dog-sized tadpoles, effectively making the Bokoblins the [[TheGoomba Goombas]].
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Deku Babas are the first enemy encountered.
** While ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'' does have Octoroks, the example from that game would be Spinuts, which can only attack by running into Link and don't take much effort to defeat.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds'' has Blobs, which take the Buzz Blob enemies from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' (which weren't safe to use weaker swords on because of their electric shield) and remove the electricity, resulting in a slow-moving enemy that's easy to defeat with even the weakest sword.

* Octoroks fulfill this function in many early ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]'' games. However in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' they are a little bit stronger and rarer, causing them to lose this role to the basic green soldiers.
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' Octoroks become exclusively aquatic and require the shield or a ranged weapon to defeat. Deku Babas, especially the withered variant, become the first and weakest enemy encountered.

** In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'', Rex took the Goomba spot (though each Rex took ''two'' hits to defeat), sharing it with unshelled Koopa Troopas. The Goombas did not show up early in the game, and when they did, they looked completely different and didn't go down with one GoombaStomp. The Japanese version of ''World'' gave these Goombas a slightly different name (Kuribon) than the standard ones (Kuribo), and ''Super Mario 3D World'' gave this subspecies a different international name, Galoombas.

A type of [[VideoGameCharacters Video Game Enemy]]. The Goomba is the weakest and/or most basic enemy in the game. They will ''always'' be encountered in the first level (and usually, but not always, as the very first enemy in the game), has a simple movement pattern, and is reassuringly easy to beat. As the meekest and mildest of {{Mooks}}, and are the very first entries in the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil. [[GoombaStomp Stomping]] or blasting one of these guys for the first time marks the moment where the person holding the controller really starts ''playing'' the game. Basically they're here to help you learn how to attack, and to spoon-feed you your first few [[ExperiencePoints EXP]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Pyro Jack, a jack-o-lantern in a wizard costume, and Pixie, a tiny fairy girl, are the two weakest enemies in the entire game, to the point they serve as VideoGameTutorial fights at the very start of the game. You'll only encounter them in the first few areas of the very start of the game, and they are the lowest level {{Guardian Entit|y}}ies behind your StarterMon Arsene.

* Zaku and its clones in the Franchise/{{Gundam}} multi-verse. In fact, they are named after the Japanese equivalent term "zako" (usually translated as "small-fry"). Ramba Rai's infamous [[MemeticMutation "No Zaku"]] is showing that the story's has moved pass the basic level for Amuro.
