Koopa Freerunning is a minigame featured in Super Mario Odyssey. Upon completing the main story, a Koopa Troopa wearing a green hat appears in the various kingdoms and challenges Mario to a race against it and three other Koopa Troopas (red, blue, and purple—known as the Roving Racers) across the kingdom's landscape for a Power Moon; these races are known as Regular Cups. The kingdom's landscape often changes to how it was before the kingdom's Multi Moons were collected during the race, such as Snow Kingdom being under a blizzard and Seaside Kingdom being in the daytime. Upon destroying the respective kingdom's Moon Rock and clearing the Regular Cup, the purple Koopa Troopa is replaced with a gold Koopa Troopa, who is much smarter than the other racers and uses advanced shortcuts and techniques; these races are known as Master Cups and award another Power Moon. Mario and the Koopa Troopas can capture enemies in his environment to speed themselves up; however, the Koopa Troopas rapidly spin inside of their shells and move rather than possess the enemy. After collecting both Power Moons from a specific race, the player can keep racing to beat their high scores; every time the player beats the gold Koopa Troopa afterwards, the Koopa Troopa awards 50 to 100 coins depending on the kingdom in which the race takes place. The racers appear in every kingdom besides Cloud Kingdom, Ruined Kingdom, Dark Side, and Darker Side.
Next to the Koopa Troopa who starts the race is a Rankings Board for the race, which shows global and friend leaderboards for all of the minigames when connected to the Internet.
