Blue Electrokoopas[1] are a blue variant of Electro-Koopa, derived from Koopa Troopas, that appears in Super Mario Sunshine. They are one of the two types of Electro-Koopas, along with the red type, and are much smaller and more aggressive than the other type. Blue Electrokoopas are found primarily in Pinna Park, but they also appear in the King Boo fight. Blue Electrokoopas attack by throwing their shells, which can electrocute Mario and remove a portion of his health. The shells return to the Blue Electrokoopas like boomerangs. A Blue Electrokoopas can be defeated from Mario either stomping them once they are exposed after throwing their shells or spraying them with water to make them vulnerable to their own shells. A defeated Blue Electrokoopa releases one coin when stomped, but it drops four coins if it gets electrocuted by its own shell. In the uncommon occurrence that a Blue Electrokoopa throws its shell over a cliff, the shell disappears after a few moments, but the Blue Electrokoopa spontaneously grows a new one. Similarly, the shell is destroyed if it lands in water, though it still takes some time before the Blue Electrokoopa replaces it.
