Tutankoopa?[edit]

Is it possible that this character is the same as Tutankoopa from Paper Mario? They dress nearly exactly the same, are based on the same type of enemy, and fill much the same purpose. The name isn't all that different, and could actually simply be a shortening of it. He may also be taller and thinner, but then again many Mario characters have differing appearances throughout the various media. Most characters in the Paper Mario series are small and squat anyways, while the characters in this game appear to be taller and more colorful. It seems likely to me, but some sort of confirmation would be good. Redstar 16:05, 8 December 2009 (EST)

One's a Koopa Troopa and the other's a Magikoopa. Just look at their beaks. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
I'm not sure if that's entirely conclusive, since I always thought Tutankoopa was based on a Reznor. While similar to a Magikoopa, I just don't see it. I'd like their Japanese names, since there's enough similarity to warrant an investigation. Redstar 16:39, 8 December 2009 (EST)
