Colossal Koopa Paratroopas[1], also known as Big Koopa Paratroopas, are gigantic Koopa Paratroopas.

Super Mario Bros. 3[edit]

Colossal Koopa Paratroopas appear in Giant Land in Super Mario Bros. 3, and do not act differently than other Koopa Paratroopas. Like Big Koopa Troopas, their large shells can be used to smash Giant Brick Blocks, and can be picked up. They only come in Green Shells.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars[edit]

Tub-O-Troopas from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars bear a resemblance to Colossal Koopa Paratroopas.

Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition[edit]

In Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition, they are known as Big Koopa Paratroopas, and come in green and yellow-shelled variants.

Big Green Koopa Paratroopa[edit]

Big Green Koopa Paratroopas are Water-attribute enemies. In battle, in addition to attacking normally, they may occasionally use Big Shell to nullify Fire and Dark attribute damage for three turns, and may also use Frenzied Blows to deal a large amount of damage. When defeated, they may randomly drop Super Water Blocks of Green Koopa Paratroopas, while defeating them with 10+ Combo attacks guarantees they will drop Rare Fruits. As Water enemies, they take extra damage from Wood attribute attacks and less from Fire damage. Only three appear as enemies in the entire game: in the last regular battle in World 4-PDSMBE-WendyAirship.png and its Special World counterpart, and in the first battle of Course 2 of the Fixed Challenge mode in Score Attack. A Big Green Koopa Paratroopa also appears in the demo version of Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition, as the boss of Intro.

As teammates, Big Green Koopa Paratroopas gain a Light sub-attribute (being Water/Light teammates), and have an HP rating of 6/6, an ATK rating of 2/6, and a RCV rating of 3/6. Their Big Shell Skill changes any Fire and Wood Orbs on the player's Orb field into Water Orbs, while their Awoken Skill Health Boost raises the HP of the player's entire team. Big Green Koopa Paratroopas use Fruits and Rare Fruits to raise their Skill Levels. The player can create a Big Green Koopa Paratroopa by transforming a Green Koopa Paratroopa with five Super Mushrooms.

Big Yellow Koopa Paratroopa[edit]

Big Yellow Koopa Paratroopas are Light-attribute enemies. In battle, they may occasionally use Shining Shell to nullify Dark attribute damage for three turns, and may also use Frenzied Blows to deal a large amount of damage. When defeated, they may randomly drop Super Light Blocks of Yellow Koopa Paratroopas, while defeating them with a 10+ Combo attacks guarantees they will drop Rare Fruits. As Light enemies, they take extra damage from Dark attribute attacks and normal damage from any other attribute. Only two appear as enemies in the entire game: as the bosses of World 7-7 and its Special World counterpart,

As teammates, Big Yellow Koopa Paratroopas gain a Light sub-attribute (being Light/Light teammates), and have an HP rating of 6/6, an ATK rating of 3/6, and a RCV rating of 3/6. Their Shining Shell Skill changes any Fire and Dark Orbs on the player's Orb field into Light Orbs, while their Awoken Skill Health Boost raises the HP of the player's entire team. Like their green-shelled counterparts, Big Yellow Koopa Paratroopas also use Fruits and Rare Fruits to raise their Skill Levels. The player can create a Big Yellow Koopa Paratroopa by transforming a Yellow Koopa Paratroopa with five Super Mushrooms.

Super Mario Maker[edit]

In Super Mario Maker, they can be produced if the player puts a Super Mushroom onto normal Koopa Paratroopas; another way of creating them is to attach a pair of wings to a Big Koopa Troopa. Colossal Koopa Paratroopas come in green and red-shelled varieties, just like their smaller relatives, and for each they behave differently: green-shelled ones make consequent hops on the ground, heading towards the direction they are facing, and red-shelled ones fly in a straight pattern up and down.
