BACKGROUND: Rumour has it that a clever Goomba developed the spiked helmet as a defense against the stomping tactics used to squash Goombas in battle. The spike prevents stomping attacks by those who are not equipped with sturdy footwear. The spikes are sometimes dipped in poison which can paralyze attackers who try to stomp Spiked Goombas.
Spiked Goombas are mostly used to reinforce unprotected Goombas. Because the helmets are made from Spiketop shells, there are not enough to meet the Koopa Troop's needs, and most Goombas must still go without protection from stomping.

OTHER BACKGROUND INFO:
"This is a Spiked Goomba. Spiked Goombas are Goombas with spikes on their heads. Whatever you do, don't jump on their spikes or you'll get hurt or even paralyzed!" - Goombario
"A Goomba finally grew tired of resting under Mario's large shoes, so it armed itself with some painfully pointed headgear. Unless you have a Badge to protect you, you must rely on Hammer attacks." - Paper Mario Player's Guide
