Super Mario series
Super Mario 3D World
Horned Ant Troopers have a pair of antennae, red feet, an overbite and wear a spiked orange helmet on their bodies. Despite the spiked helmet, they can be jumped on if they are walking along a vertical surface. Horned Ant Troopers attack by marching (sometimes out of holes or gray pipes) and will keep walking on to walls. They are vulnerable to Ground Pounds, projectiles, and both Cat Mario and Tanooki Mario's attacks. They first appear in World 4-1, Ant Trooper Hill.
Super Mario Maker 2
Horned Ant Troopers appear in Super Mario Maker 2, where they are placeable enemies exclusively in the Super Mario 3D World style.
Mario & Luigi series
Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam
Horned Ant Troopers make their first appearance in the Mario & Luigi series in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. They are enemies that are encountered in the Twinsy Tropics Dungeon alongside normal Ant Troopers. Mario, Luigi, and Paper Mario can attack them with their hammers to knock their helmets off, making them normal Ant Troopers. Both Ant Troopers and Horned Ant Troopers are fought in large groups. A Horned Ant Trooper's main attack is to jump up and dive head-first into one of the Bros., which can be counterattacked with the hammer. If the number of Ant Troopers and Horned Ant Troopers in battle combined is a multiple of three, they attack the Bros. by dashing towards them in groups of three. The Ant Troopers without helmets can be safely jumped on, but the Bros. will be damaged if they jump on a Horned Ant Trooper. Sometimes, Ant Troopers can choose to skip a turn on purpose.
