That's a Dark Koopa. It lives in dark places that the light never reaches. It's a bit tougher than a regular Koopa, so you won't be able to beat it easily. But it DOES have the same weakness as a regular Koopa. Flip it over and it's helpless. Why do you think it needs sunglasses down here, anyway? What's the point?

Dark Koopas are purple-shelled Koopas that live in dark places underground. They are found in Toad Town Tunnels in Paper Mario, where they sometimes grin and start to spin around when they attack, making their opponents dizzy. Dark Koopas are also found in the Pit of 100 Trials in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, but in this game, they do not cause dizziness. Instead, they are merely stronger than regular Koopa Troopas and have the ability to right themselves after being flipped on their backs. Dark Koopas can also make the First Strike outside battle to damage Mario.

This is a Dark Koopa. Dark Koopas are Koopa Troopas who live in the Toad Town Tunnels. They're known for causing dizziness. Be extra careful when you see 'em grin, because that means they're getting ready to do their dizzy attack. Their defense power is 0 when they're turned over, so you should use Jump attacks.
