Koopa Troopa

Koopa Troopa

Koopa Troopas are enemies who first appeared in Super Mario Bros.. They are a turtle species that appear in various colors, and their shells can be weapons. Most of them aren't very tough, making them easy enemies for some. However, though they are weak, they are actually very hard to kill, as they withdraw into their shells when they are attacked. They can only be killed by making them fall off cliffs, getting attacked by fire or ice, or getting attacked with another shell. Kamek has modified several Koopa Troopas, giving them wings and weapons. In Paper Mario, there are 4 evil Koopas, known as the Koopa Bros..

Koopas mainly live under Luigi's house, because there they can pour salsa on their heads without being questioned. They appear in Giant Land with their bigger counterparts and are found in other areas like Donut Plains.

During Mario & Luigi: War of the Kingdoms, green and red Koopa Troopas mainly live in the bakery's basement. Also, a member of orange Koopa Troopas, Koopa the Quick, patrols the whole bakery every day and writes recipes in the magic book before Mario, Luigi and the fighters go here.
