Shovas[1] are large Hammer Bro-like Koopas that first appear in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. They slowly push objects such as pipes and boxes forward with their large gloved hands, and take three stomps or three fireballs to defeat. The color of their skin, helmets, and shells are reminiscent of those of the Hammer Bros. as they appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3. Their name derives from "shove", relating to their behavior. Shovas are introduced in Swamp Pipe Crawl and feature prominently in the eponymous Secrets of Shova Mansion.
