Goombas almost never made it into Super Mario Bros.

And more interesting factoid about the iconic enemy

For many, the Goomba was the very first enemy they ever encountered in a video game. The squishy mushroom-eque adversary of Mario has been famously trying to thwart the Italian plumber for over 25 years to little success -- though I'm sure we've all died a few times in the opening moments of the Nintendo original.

But how well do you actually know the goomba? Did you know their Japanese name "kuribo" means chestnut? How about the fact that they almost never made it into the original Super Mario Bros.?

Take a look at this interesting video from the folks over at GameXplain to learn a little something about the stompable saboteur's history.
