Bob-Omb

If it sees you, it will light its fuse and follow you around until it explodes. Either get them to chase you, or pick them up from behind and throw them. Each yields one coin, but be sure to keep a safe distance until they explode. Bob-Ombs will always respawn, but will not yield more than one coin.

Goomba

Koopa Troopa

A bipedal turtle. Destroying him (with almost any attack) removes his shell and reveals an embarrassing pair of pink boxers. His shell, once removed, can be surfed upon like a skateboard. Destroying the Koopa earns you a blue coin, but if you leave him shell-less for a while, he'll respawn a new one. Koopas will not respawn once you grab their blue coin.

When he lands on the ground, jump on his back. You can generate up to five coins by jumping continuously on his back. To destroy him, butt-stomp on his back.

Note: There is a special glitch involving Whomps. If you jump just in time as they attempt to land on you, you will jump right through them. This is an easy way to avoid being turned into a pancake.
