That's a KP Paratroopa. It's a Koopa Paratroopa of a different color. Max HP is 4, Attack is 2, and Defense is 1. Its attacks are the same as your average, garden-variety Koopa Paratroopa. So, just do the same thing as always: stomp on it, flip it, and drop its Defense to 0. My Headbonk is pretty effective against it, too. Come on! Let's get him!


KP Paratroopa is a Paratroopa that has dyed its shell yellow. It is the winged variety of KP Koopas, which are yellow-shelled Koopa Troopas. Only one KP Paratroopa has been encountered by Mario, as part of the Glitz Pit fighter team, the KP Koopas, led by King K (who isn't actually as strong as his KP Paratroopa teammate). Other than its coloration, a KP Paratroopa is the same as a normal Paratroopa - it has no special abilities.

If Goombella uses her Tattle ability on the KP Paratroopa after it has been grounded, it will still give Tattle information for the KP Paratroopa; whereas all other types of Paratroopas, Parabuzzies and Spiky Parabuzzies give Tattle information on the grounded version of the enemy if Tattled after having their wings removed.
