In Super Mario Odyssey, if Mario captures a Goomba then jumps on top of another Goomba, he can stack them to make a Goomba Tower. I’ve seen these stack as high as 10-15 Goombas, but I’m curious if it’s possible to go even bigger.

What is the largest possible Goomba Tower Mario can make? Is there a maximum size?

    There probably isn't a hard cap. My guess is that you're only limited by the number of Goombas in the vicinity, which would make this more of a "where can I create the tallest Goomba tower" question. Fun question, I'm interested in the answer!

    Tallest I've found is 26 as seen in this vid. I'm going to venture a guess and say that this is probably the tallest one you can make.

  • The boss probably stops spawning them because there would be too much entities to track. Maybe with the one in Bowser's Keep you could spawn a few more?

According to the Mario Wiki, the maximum number of Goombas in a tower in Super Mario Odessey is 30 according to this quote.

The maximum number of Goombas there can be in a Goomba Tower is 30. This can be done in the Darker Side, in the area with the Yoofoe.


A hard limit of 200 Goombas has been found. The Switch will crash if any more Goombas are added. Note that this number cannot be achieved in game and a special way was used to create this tower. Legitimately, the limit of 30 in redaddple8787's answer is the maximum possible without involving any cheat.
