“That's right, Kylie Koopa's got your number!”
Kylie Koopa is a female pink-shelled Koopa Troopa who appeared in the game Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. She works as a photojournalist for the Koopa Kronicle, which is most likely a news organization in the Mushroom Kingdom of the past. As a reporter that is always on the lookout for "The Big Scoop", she has a ritzy personality, uses slang when she talks, and likes to take lots of pictures with her camera. She is turned into a Shroob Mushroom by the Elder Shrooboid late in the game, but is revived when E. Gadd spreads baby tears, the healing ingredient, around the Mushroom Kingdom of the past.
The four heroes of past and present first encountered her when they were traveling to Yoshi's Island. There they saw her actively snapping pictures and getting information about the Shroob monster Yoob. The Mario Bros. saw her trying to see where the Yoshis were. The babies helped her out and found the Yoshis. However the Yoshis got eaten by Yoob who also found them. Kylie Koopa was even foolish enough to go and take pictures right in Yoob's face. Yoob then inevitably ate her. However, since Kylie was a Koopa, Yoob immediately spits her right out. Kylie wasn't seen again until the 4 heroes entered Gritzy Desert. She told Mario about the Shroob meeting and about the secret entrance into it (while Luigi and the babies were getting chased by a single Shroob). Later she gets kidnapped and tied up by the Shroobs and then fed to Petey Piranha. The Mario Bros. rescue her and defeat the monster and Kylie spins away, but not before revealing that Princess Peach was inside the monster, but was spat out. Later on in the game, when it seemed as all hope was lost for the Bros., (Princess Shroob was going to defeat them), she revealed she was disguised as a Shroob and rescued the bros. Then she finds out Toadbert recovered his memory and they quickly follow the Mario Bros. to tell them. But she and Toadbert got hurt by The Elder Shrooboid and turned into a mushroom mentioned above by the Elder Princess Shroob. She got turned back (along with many others) by baby tears at the end of the game.
One of the Toads in Princess Peach's Castle mentions having read a book called "Fungicide: The Epic Battle for the Mushroom Kingdom". The book had been written by Kylie. This implies she wrote a book about the adventure of the four Mario Bros. and their battle against the Shroobs.
