Richard Goodman is a recurring antagonist of the SuperMarioLogan franchise. He is the questionably-biological pubescent son of Mr. Goodman. He made his debut as the main antagonist in Mr. Goodman's Son! and served as the main antagonist for the first half of Season 11, with even his father afraid to stand up to him. His voice is completely identical to his father's voice. He is as heartless as his father and his brother, Benjamin Franklin Goddman.
Richard was seen as a carbon copy of Goodman. He was snobby, spoiled, egotistical, selfish and greedy like his father. His methods of getting stuff that he wants to be involved tempting those with money, which is different from his father, who threatens physical mutilation to force others' compliance with his demands. He was seen to be a rich bully, who only wanted to make those around him feel lower class and inferior. Richard also described everything he saw or smelled 'poor'.
But later, Junior and Cody manage to convince him that money can't buy happiness, and the most important things in life were friends and family, which later makes him a nice person with a conscience. However, his father does not agree with him.
It is revealed that Goodman abuses his son, smacking his AirPods off his face in the end of Mr. Goodman's Son!. And forces him to be like him. This shows that Richard's personality stemmed from his father, though he later reformed when learning the truth his father refused to hear. He bribes people for anything he wants.
In Bowser Junior's AirPods!, Richard seems to have forgotten who Junior was and seems to be back to how he was in his debut. This implies that his father had corrupted Richard's mind so much to where he forgot who he is friends with. And like his father, he doesn't seem to know how technology works nowadays with him not knowing he is able to charge his phone instead of buying a new one.
Despite being reformed in his first appearance, Richard returned to being antagonistic in his later appearances. This could be from Goodman forcing Richard to be like him.
Bribing: It states that he bribes money to get anything that he wants.
Theft:He takes Ken and Cody’s bike away from Cody, The Game Of Life away from Junior,and Mario’s clothes away from Mario.
