A Gold Koopa Paratroopa[1], or simply Gold Koopa[2], is a Koopa Paratroopa under the effects of a Gold Ring in New Super Mario Bros. 2. They look and behave much like their parent species, except that their shells and shoes are gold. When stomped on, they will lose their wings, and then retreat into their shell when stomped again and give the player five coins. When a Gold Shell is thrown, a path of coins will follow it. Whenever a Gold Shell is thrown at an enemy, an increasing number of coins will be earned for each enemy defeated.
