Soopa Koopa Paratroopas, or Soopa Paratroopas, are a species of Koopa Paratroopa in Monster Mix-Up. They are the result of combining three Koopa Paratroopas with Bowser's Monster Mixer, creating an entity that has three heads and is larger than Colossal Koopa Paratroopas. They are capable of being ridden, as Larry Koopa demonstrates when he rides a Soopa Koopa Paratroopa in an attempt to capture Mario, Luigi, Toad, and the Mushroom King. It succeeds in grabbing Luigi, though the others escape. At a later point, while Mario and Toad are up in the clouds, the Paratroopa finds them again. If they attempt to jump down, the Paratroopa corners them, resulting in a Game Over. If they attempt to hide in the clouds, they either manage to escape or end up getting captured (depending on how the reader solves the given puzzle). It then gloats about finding them. While they are in the Soopa Koopa Paratroopa's claws, one of its feathers falls into Mario's hands, and he has to choose between trying to tickle the Paratroopa and trying to make it sneeze. If he tries tickling it, it goes crashing to the ground, bringing Mario and Toad to another Game Over. If he tries to make it sneeze, Mario and Toad are launched far away from it, and it loses sight of them. In another scenario, Mario and Toad intentionally sneak onto the Paratroopa's back to follow the Monster Mixer. Again, trying to force it down (this time with a wrench from Mario's pocket) causes it to crash.
