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