Encyclopedia Super Mario Bros.[edit]

「ルドウィッグ
クッパ七人衆のひとり。頭脳派で目立ちたがり。」

Ludwig
One of the Koopalings. He is an intellectual, and a show-off.

Super Mario Pia[edit]

「ルドウィッグ
出っ歯のような牙がかわいい。初登場時はジャンプで地震を起こす攻撃を使った。」

Ludwig
His overbite is cute. In his first appearance, he used an attack in which he caused earthquakes by jumping.

Super Mario Bros. 3 Nintendo Power Strategy Guide[edit]

Ludwig von Koopa
Bowser's oldest Koopaling and second in command, he's a real monster!

Bio from The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 Writers Bible[edit]

When Koopa's villainous schemes require sheer lunacy, he calls on Kooky. A graduate of Frankenstein University, Kooky loves to construct monsters in his basement lab in Kastle Koopa. He's responsible for many of the new villainous characters in SM3.[sic] He built the Doomship. Kooky never showers or combs his hair. He sleeps during the day, if he ever sleeps at all. Eats nothing but candy and fried foods.

性格 落ち着きがない
登場ゲーム 3、ワールド
クッパの仲間だ
クッパ大王(P26)の一族で白いたてがみを持っている。都合が悪くなるとすぐにこうらに隠れてしまう。マリオワールドでは、中ボスとして君臨。コクッパだからと、なめてかかると痛い目にあうぞ。」

Ludwig
Species: King Tribe
Disposition: Never calm
Appears in: 3, World
An Associate of Bowser
A member of the family of Great King Bowser (P26) who has a white mane. When the situation becomes bad, he hides in his shell right away. In Mario World, he reigns as a mid-boss. Since he's a Koopaling, you'll have a bad time if you underestimate him.

「着地する瞬間にジャンプだ!
マリオ3のコクッパは、着地したときに地震を起こし、地上のマリオを行動不能にしてしまう。ジャンプしてよけよう。」

Jump at the Moment he Lands!
In Mario 3, the Koopaling causes earthquakes when he lands, immobilising Mario. Jump to prevent that.

「ルドウィッグのはく火の玉に要注意!
ワールドでのルドウィッグはこうらに入っている間は、無敵なので攻撃してもムダ。出てきて火をはこうとした瞬間に踏むのだ。」

Pay Attention to the Fire Balls Ludwig Spits!
In World, Ludwig is invincible while he's retracted into his shell, so it's pointless to attack him. The solution is to stomp him at the moment when he comes out to spit fire.

Prima Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 Guide[edit]

Ludwig von Koopa
With mad hair and roving eyes, this lunatic turtle has all the abilities of Roy (he can pound the ground), but he improves on this by leaping into the air at a much quicker rate once he’s hit, allowing more frequent attacks. He’s very adept at wand-firing too. Stay on the upper portions of the room, stay in the air as he lands, and then dispatch in the normal manner, finishing Pipe Maze in style!

Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 Nintendo Power Strategy Guide[edit]

Ludwig von Koopa
Second in command only to big Bowser, Ludwig von Koopa is the oldest Koopaling. He's also the most vicious.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii Official Japanese Website[edit]

「ルドウイッグ
大人びてナマイキな.仲間のうちで一番の頭脳派?ー筋縄ではいかないかも。」

Ludwig
A grown up and impertinent one, who is the most intellectual of his comrades? It's possible that dealing with him will not be straightforward.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii Trading Card[edit]

Prepare for destruction. Ludwig's skillful fighting technique will demand the best of you. Ludwig makes his first appearance at Princess Peach's birthday, when he assists in kidnapping her. He will assault you with fireballs and spin in his shell to knock you out. His ability to hover makes defeating this opponent even more challenging.

The cleverest of the Koopalings, easily recognized by his big tufts of hair. He's got a mature air about him, but he likes to show off and can sound a bit pompous. In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, he's the boss of World 7 and torments Mario by firing homing magic blasts and floating too high in the air to be jumped on.

Palutena's Guidance (Wii U and Ultimate)[edit]

Palutena: That's one of the Koopalings, Ludwig von Koopa.
Pit: Hmm. The resemblance to Bowser Jr. is strong.
Palutena: That Koopa Clown Car is the mass-produced type.
Pit: I guess as heir to the throne, Bowser Jr. would get preferential treatment.
Viridi: The relationship between Bowser and the Koopalings is a real mystery.
Pit: I kind of feel bad for them.
Palutena: That's sweet of you but not very conducive to taking them down, Pit.

In-game tip[edit]

Ludwig's origins - Ludwig von Koopa first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3, released in North America in 1990. You could call him the brains of the Koopalings.
