* Bowling Ball Larvae in ''[[VideoGame/{{Bug}} Bug Too!]]'' are the first enemy the player character faces if they selected scene 1. These take two hits to die, but the first hit removed their armor making them harmless, and they would die eventually if not hit a second time. However, they were also TheSpiny -- they would hurt a {{Goomba Stomp}}ing player character when they were curled into a ball (their "turning around" animation had them do this), and it so happened that ''several'' of them in the first world are constantly rolling around invulnerable to damage, becoming stage hazards.

A type of [[VideoGameCharacters Video Game Enemy]]. The Goomba is the weakest and/or most basic enemy in a game. They have a simple movement pattern, are reassuringly easy to beat, and will almost always be encountered in the first level (and usually, but not always, as the very first enemy in the game). They are the meekest and mildest of {{Mooks}}, [[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 (in [[RolePlayingGame RPGs]]) to spoon-feed you easy [[ExperiencePoints EXP]] before more difficult opponents start showing up.

TheGoomba is often simplistic in appearance, suggestive of a nuisance rather than a genuine threat. They can easily be AdorableEvilMinions. The WaddlingHead is common Goomba-type enemy found in [[PlatformGame Platformers]]. In western fantasy {{RPG}}s, [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent goblins]] and [[RatStomp giant rats]] most get this role. While in Japanese RPGs and fantasy games, (thanks in part to ''[[VideoGame/DragonQuest Dragon Quest's]]'' popularity) [[BlobMonster slimes]] have been elevated to this role.

* Lampshaded by Kazuma in ''LightNovel/KonoSuba'' when one of the Demon King's Generals turns out to be a slime, which he assumes is just one of those rank-and-file ''VideoGame/DragonQuest''-style slimes. Ultimately subverted when it turns out slimes are [[PoisonIsCorrosive far]], ''[[PersonOfMassDestruction far]]'' [[NighInvulnerable more]] [[ExtremeOmnivore dangerous]] in the fantasy world Kazuma inhabits.

* From the SpectacleFighter ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Affinity angels]] are first encountered in the Prologue chapter, and offer little threat. They are basically there to allow the player to practice building combos and evading in preparation to stronger enemies in the near future. That being said, Affinities [[TookALevelInBadass get much stronger varieties later on in the game]].
