Richard Charles Goodman is the questionably-biological pubescent son of Mr. Goodman. He made his debut as the main antagonist in Mr. Goodman's Son! He currently serves as the main antagonist of Season 11 as well as the one of the Two secondary antagonist‘s of the sml series(the other being Black Yoshi) with even his father nervous to stand up to him.
Richard was seen as a carbon copy of Goodman. He was snobby, 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 of 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.
