Koopas are a turtle-like species who have appeared as enemies or characters in many games. Frequent subspecies include Koopa Troopas, Koopa Paratroopas, Dry Bones, Magikoopas, Lakitus, Hammer Bros., Buzzy Beetles, and Spinies. The ruler of the majority of Koopas shown is Bowser. However, not all Koopas swear allegiance to Bowser, and peaceful Koopa communities have emerged, such as Koopa Village and Petalburg.
