First appearance Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story (2009)
Latest appearance Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey (2018)
Variant of Magikoopa

Magifoofas are Magikoopas with Fawful-like grins, swirly glasses, and green robes that appear in Bowser's Castle during the events of the game Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. Bowser can defeat this enemy by touching it in the overworld, but Mario and Luigi can battle them.

In battle, they can use their magic to summon shapes above the Mario Bros., which will then solidify. The shapes formed are a triangle, a square, and a circle. The Bros. will have to jump over the triangle and square in order to prevent being damaged; however, the circle will bounce over Mario and Luigi's heads. If timed well, the triangle or square can be crushed by a jump counter-attack. Occasionally, the spell may turn into a Bean similar to the ones the Crawfuls eat to heal, which is indicated by black smoke coming out of the Magifoofa's wand. The bros. will need to jump over this attack. It can also heal itself and its allies for 30 HP when in battle, similar to Love Bubbles and Soul Bubbles from the previous game.

In Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey, they have new attacks that are identical to that of regular Magikoopas from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, their shoes are now purple, and their hats are no longer especially pointed. They are also found in the Bowser Jr.'s Journey mode as enemies, where they are ranged troopers that are weak against Bowser Jr.
