It says in the Appearance section in the article: "Kamella, like all Magikoopas, is a Koopa..." Are all Magikoopas necessarily Koopas? Isn't she of a different species, or possibly a subspecies?Starshine (talk) 01:42, 28 November 2013 (EST)

Well I think it's referring to the fact that she's a "Koopa" (that being a turtle). It's like "Koopa" really refers to any turtles. See Koopa (species). MarioComix (talk) 02:15, 28 November 2013 (EST)
It goes by the logic: Kamella is a Magikoopa. All Magikoopas are Koopas. Therefore, Kamella is a Koopa. I think the line is unnecessary though; we can just say she's a Magikoopa and people can instantly infer that she is a Koopa.
