Colossal Koopa Paratroopas[1] are inhabitants of Giant Land in Super Mario Bros. 3. Colossal Koopa Paratroopas are nothing more than Big Koopa Troopas with wings, and do not act differently than other Koopa Paratroopas. They can also be used to smash Giant Brick Blocks, and can be picked up. They only come in Green Shells. Colossal Koopa Paratroopas bear a resemblance to Tub-O-Troopas from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.

In Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition, they are known as Big Green Koopa Paratroopas. Additionally, there is a new yellow-shelled variant called Big Yellow Koopa Paratroopas.

They are set to reappear in Super Mario Maker, which can be produced by enlarging a normal Koopa Troopa with a Super Mushroom and giving it wings.
