The Spiked Koopa, also referred to as a Pirate Koopa, Spiked Pirate, Spiky Pirate, or Turtle, is the first boss in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 and a member of the Brown Sugar Pirates. While given a generic Koopa identifier in English, his Japanese name derives from Hammer Brother (｢トゲブロス」 Toge Burosu, translating as "Thorn Bros.").
In Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, the Spiked Koopa resides at the end of the Rice Beach stage and is armed with spiky armor similar to a Koopatrol. In his fight with Wario, he employs a three-pronged attack of striking from land, air, and underground. His shell makes him invulnerable to ground pounds and fire. However, he can be rammed into, exposing his soft belly. After three hits to his vulnerable underside, he is defeated.
