When a Shady Koopa flips back up from its back, its Attack increases. Shady Koopas have a place of honor in the Koopa family tree because of this distinction.
That's a Shady Koopa. It's yet another member of the Koopa family tree. Max HP is 8, Attack is 3, and Defense is 1. The difference between them and other Koopas? They can attack from their backs! And, when they flip back up, their Attack gets boosted and they go totally ape! ...Wow! That's pretty tricky! No wonder they're called Shady Koopas, huh?
Other than having wings, this creature isn't very different from a Shady Koopa. Once it flips off its back, it boosts its Attack.
That's a Shady Paratroopa. It's a Shady Koopa with wings, obviously. Max HP is 8, Attack is 3, and Defense is 1. Knock off its wings and it's a Shady Koopa. Unlike typical Koopas and Paratroopas, its Attack jumps when it flips up off its back. This also says it has a move that hits you and your ally at once. Is that possible? Uh... I guess the best thing to do is just beat it quickly after we flip it.
Although the Shellshockers, like other major league groups, are rather cold towards Mario and his team, at least one of their members shows great support for Mario during the Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door's final battle.
