King Koopa's alter egos are the many aliases used by King Koopa throughout numerous episodes of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! With a few exceptions, an alter ego involves both a special costume as well as a different name. Aside from cosmetically fitting the theme of a given episode, it is unknown why King Koopa uses these alter egos.
