Koopa Striker, Super Paper Mario

A Koopa Striker is a species of Koopa introduced in Super Paper Mario. A Koopa Striker has large, orange eyebrows and a similar body shape to a Koopa Troopa. They wear soccer uniforms and have black and white checkered shells, with the color scheme and pattern of a soccer ball. Its name may refer to the striker position used in soccer.

Koopa Strikers attack by placing a shell on the ground, then kicking it at any and all assailants. They guard the area around Bowser's castle in The Bitlands along with other Koopas, and appear in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials. A Koopa Striker is also seen in the minigame Hammer Whacker; he launches giant shells at Mario, Peach, Bowser, or Luigi.

They are similar in concept to the Blue Koopas without shells of Super Mario World, which kick empty shells at Mario.
