First appearance Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (1996)
Latest appearance Super Mario RPG (Nintendo Switch) (2023)

Grand Troopas (originally called Tub-O-Troopas) are giant Paratroopas that only appear in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Grand Troopas are obese Paratroopas with green shells. They have smudged noses and puffed-out cheeks, as expected, as well as their enormous bulk, which is the major reason for their high HP. They are found in Bowser's Keep. They are very similar to Big Troopas, even fighting exactly the same. The original game even refers to them by Big Troopas' original names when it states "Heavy Troopa’s ready to launch," though the remake fixes this by having the quote say "Big guy" instead on both. Like Big Troopas, they appear to be based on Colossal Koopa Paratroopas from Super Mario Bros. 3.

They have more HP than Big Troopas, but the real reason for their higher rank is their outsized personalities.
