Koopa General, The Super Mario Bros. Movie

The Koopa General is a supporting antagonist of The Super Mario Bros. Movie. He is a Koopa Paratroopa sporting a blue-colored shell with spikes, blue boots, a blue-plated gorget with shoulder guards, and a spiked blue helmet with Bowser's symbol on it.

The Koopa General is the general of the Koopa Troop, and he is portrayed as much more stern and rigid than his soldiers. He is first seen guiding the Koopa Paratroopas as the army attacks the Snow Kingdom, and he is seen restraining the Penguin King after Kamek forces him and his subjects aside. The Koopa General is later seen with the Koopa Troop at the celebration of acquiring the Super Star on Bowser's airship, where he listens to Bowser's victory speech. Later, he interrupts Bowser and Kamek acting out the former's marriage proposal to Peach and informs him that the Kong army, joined by Peach and Mario, intends to surprise them by taking a shortcut via Rainbow Road. The Koopa General then guides the counter-offensive by riding a giant bulldozer with maws towards Mario. Determined to kill Mario, he destroys Mario's Standard Kart with two Bullet Bills from his vehicle and then a Pipe Frame Mario hijacked from one of the Koopa Troopas, but he manages to hide from the Koopa General on his bulldozer and get onto Donkey Kong's kart, who blows up the Koopa General's bulldozer with a Rocket Barrel. As Mario and Donkey Kong drive away, the Koopa General emerges unharmed from the explosion. Enraged, he throws away his spear and helmet and retracts into his blue shell, then flies at the two and explodes on them, destroying the road and making them plummet to the sea below and get eaten by a Maw-Ray. Later, however, Mario and Donkey Kong manage to cooperate and escape. The Koopa General is not seen again for the rest of the film.

The Koopa General is voiced by Scott Menville.
