That's a KP Koopa. It's a Koopa Troopa of a slightly different color. Max HP is 4, Attack is 2, and Defense is 1. Looks like its abilities are just like any Koopa… So he oughta be a piece of cake! Don't go easy just because you know King K, Mario… That's what friends are for!


KP Koopas are Koopa Troopas from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door with their shells dyed yellow. Only two KP Koopas are encountered; they and a single KP Paratroopa are all members of the Glitz Pit fighting team, the KP Koopas. It is explicitly stated that KP Koopas have the same abilities as normal Koopa Troopas, and they differ merely in coloration. As the Gold Star, KP Koopas are called "Gold Koopas" in French and Italian.
