Troopeas are the Beanbean Kingdom counterpart to Koopa Troopa in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. Their name is a portmanteau of "Troopa" and "pea", the latter of which is a legume like a bean. Troopeas have dark blue shells and sprouts on their heads, and are found mainly in the south-eastern area outside Beanbean Castle Town, near Woohoo Hooniversity. Troopeas are rather basic enemies, with their only method of attack being to ram either Mario or Luigi, although they can create small water droplets that restore HP to one of their allies. If one of the Bros. jumps on a Troopea's shell while countering its ramming attack, their shell can be used against other enemies akin to the Green Shell Bros. Item/Special Attack in later games. Troopeas are extremely resistant to hammer and hand power attacks, but can be defeated with jump attacks. Parabeanies sometimes appear with Troopeas in battle.

Later, in Gwarhar Lagoon, a stronger version of the Troopea called the Elite Troopea appears, which have red shells in contrast with the Troopea's blue ones. There are also winged variants of Troopeas called Paratroopeas.
