Red Electrokoopas[1] are a variant of Climbing Koopa that appears in Super Mario Sunshine. Red Electrokoopas are one of two kinds of Electro-Koopas, along with the blue type. Both are quadrupeds and have electrical shells. Red Electrokoopas appear in Pinna Park during Episode 3 (Red Coins of the Pirate Ships) and Episode 5 (The Runaway Ferris Wheel) and in Pianta Village in Episode 3 (The Goopy Inferno), where they climb on metal screens. The Electro-Koopa King (which is colored green) causes the problem in The Runaway Ferris Wheel. To defeat Red Electrokoopas, Mario must kick, punch, or ground-pound them from the other side of the metal screen or below them. When this happens, they fly off. They shock Mario if he touches them, although they damage him by the shock and not by knocking him off the metal screen, unlike a Klamber. Also unlike Klambers, Red Electrokoopas merely crawl back and forth, instead of following Mario. As they climb, a squeaking noise can be heard; it is unknown if they produce the noise or if it is merely the grating they are walking upon creaking.

In Pinna Park during Episode 3, Red Electrokoopas can be found climbing green metal screens high in the air, and they must be defeated to get some Red Coins. In Episode 5, they are found climbing several metal screens at the back of the park, guarding the Electro-Koopa King. In Episode 3 of Pianta Village, they are found at the underside of the village, climbing metal screens alongside Klambers.
