Toopa Strikers are deadly versions of Koopa Striker enemies found in the Wii game Super Paper Mario; they are encountered in the Bitlands, in Chapter 3-1. They are a kind of Koopa Striker, and as such, resemble Koopas with large brown eyebrows and a black and white checkered shell, although they can be told apart from the other species by their green-yellow clothes. They have the same stats as a Koopa Striker too, but they behave differently: pairs of Toopa Strikers will kick the shell back and forth between them in an attempt to damage their foes. Their name is a reference to this teamwork: "Toopa" comes from "two", but is spelled so that it resembles "Koopa". Toopa Strikers will also try to trick the player by kicking the shell upwards, and may kick the shell so hard, it catches on fire. Using Thoreau is a dangerous tactic as the Toopa Striker will kick the shell right back at the player. Even though they have low HP, They can be very aggravating when found in pairs due to their quickness and kicking shell back and forth. They will also back away from the Heroes of Light when they are close to them. However if one partner is defeated, the other one attacks like a regular Koopa Striker but they still can kick the shell if it hits a wall or if Mario kicks the shell at them. One of the best ways to defeat a Toopa Striker is to use Fleep to make them Dizzy. This makes them vulnerable to attack so they can't kick the shell back and forth. Another way to make them easier to defeat is to make a Toopa Striker face away from the other Toopa Striker so they can't kick the shell back and forth. They are the only striker to not appear in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials however they are quite rare, only 4 of these enemies appear in the game. Their card tells them that they are uncommon.

Toopa Strikers all have the ablity Flip between dimensions.
