* The standard cyborgs in ''VideoGame/MetalGearRising'' qualify as this, as they are the most basic enemies, and most don't even require any damage in order to slice into ribbons via blade mode.



** Don't forget the first monsters in ''VideoGame/WarioLand'', the Gooms, which are completely unable to even hurt you.

** Don't forget the first monsters in ''VideoGame/WarioLand'', the Gooms, which are completely unable to even hurt you. Bandineros from ''VideoGame/WarioLandShakeIt'' are the same way.
** Magons from ''VideoGame/WarioWorld'' are the most common foe, the small ones can't even hurt you, while the bigger ones can, but aren't very likely to due to attacking very slowly.


Added DiffLines:

* Blankies, Flatties, and Clownies from the ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'' series have no special attributes and can be defeated easily even when not powered up.


Added DiffLines:

* Dwarf Bulborbs in ''{{VideoGame/Pikmin}}'' are the most basic common enemies, being easily killed by only one or two Pikmin. They're also the only enemies that can be killed instantly just by [[GoombaStomp throwing a Pikmin directly on top of them.]]

** Gnawties, Neeks, Sneeks and Awks. The Kritters/Klomps/Kobbles/Tiki Goons aren't much stronger (though Diddy's peanuts in the CoOpMultiplayer can stun the Tiki Goons, while they just kill the Awks outright); they're the Koopa Troopas of the series.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has Whimsun and Moldsmal, the only monsters in the game that can be spared immediately without having to do anything. Froggit also counts, being the first monster that actually requires some effort to spare.

** ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' gives us the Pantheons (with the most basic model, the Hunter, equipped with an ArmCannon) in the first three games while the fourth game has them replaced with the Variants (similar to the Pantheons, but the most basic one having shots that burn on contact). The ''[[MegaManZX ZX series]]'' has both of them replaced with the Galleons, which - while an appearance that mixes both the Pantheon and the Variant - is functionally more identical to the Pantheons.

* The MarioParty series' way of continuing this tradition is to put Goombas in the role of being animalistic creatures who are [[HorseOfADifferentColor herded like sheep]] into whatever part of the arena the characters are trying to move them to. And in some cases getting stomped. They tend not to have any aggression against the player characters.

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), have 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]].

The TropeNamer is from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' In an interview it [[http://iwataasks.nintendo.com/interviews/#/wii/nsmb/1/5 was revealed]] that they were actually created at the end of the game's development, because the other main enemy in the game, the Koopa Troopa, required a two-step process to defeat, and the developers wanted to give players something simpler to defeat.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
