Were they ever officially named "Koopa Paratroopa" or do they only appear as simply "Paratroopa"s? Shouldn't the page be moved to Paratroopa? - Cobold

I've never heard it be called "Koopa Partroopa" i second the motion...Merge! Great Gonzo

They have been called Koopa Paratroopas rarely but Pratroopas mkore often. MOVE! Little Mouser.PNGPaper Jorge (Talk·Contribs)

Koopa Paratroopa is the original name from Super Mario Bros. -- Son of Suns

I really believe that Paratroopa (or even Parakoopa) is the better name for this. We should have a poll, I guess. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 09:11, 10 August 2007 (EDT)


Er... I thought the "P" in P-Wing stands for "power". Does it really stand for "Paratroopa"? --PaperStriker 04:14, 1 November 2007 (EDT)

Yeah, I thought it meant "Power" as well! Which is it? My Bloody Valentine
Yep, it's Paratroopa-Wing. --Mario Versus Luigi


Are Paratroopas evil and Parakoopas nice? That's what I always thought. --Blappity blappity boo I don't know. YOSHIKAR TSome other wiki My talk. Mi YouTubeKirby Wiki.Mi Kirby Talk

Offical name?[edit]

Were Paratroopas ever called Sky Troopas in offical material? Glitchy Missingno.jpeg SuperfiremarioGlitchy Missingno.jpeg

They are not a subspecies, just Koopas with wings. We should merge this with Koopa Troopa.KoopaMan.png Gumball of the Stars (talk)

There are many reasons why we wouldn't merge them. Two examples are: They act differently and are different playable characters in some games. YoshiwakerTyranitar.png
Also there name it different and why don't you do me a favor Koopaman and make a draft of the Koopa Troopa page with the Koopa Paratroopas merged in to it Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)
BUT THERE ARE NOT A SUBSPECIES!!!!!!!KoopaMan.png Gumball of the Stars (talk)
Calm down now there are a lot of things that have there own page Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

Green Paratroopas Hovering?[edit]

According to the article, the green Paratroopas bounce off the ground, while the red Paratroopas hover in a set path. However, in World 7-1 of New Super Mario Bros., there are green Paratroopas hover above a bottomless pit. Could this mean that both green Paratroopas and red Paratroopas are more or less the same? MimiTheCopycat 19:23, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

Well the whole thing is a confusion but as a general rule Red Koopas hover and Green Koopas hop. If you want to mention it in the Trivia section or somewhere else go ahead but these small details are sometimes better just to be overlooked to prevent even more confusion. Good observing though.

Mario Kart Mistake[edit]

I saw in the Mario Kart section that it said that Paratroopa was one of three characters in the mainstream Mario Kart not to appear in Mario Kart Wii. While that is not true, because there are 8 including Paratroopa, bold indicates not in the article. (Paratroopa, Petey (DD), DK Jr. (SMK),R.O.B. (DS), Metal Mario, Lakitu, Queen Bee/Honey Queen, Wiggler (MK7) Does "mainstream" not include handhelds? MTORedY.pngYoshi K (talk) Yoshired.png

It includes them. --NewSMBU (talk) 12:01, 31 August 2012 (EDT)

I think the wording was changed, as there were 3 beta characters with CSS Icons (excluding Mii Outfit C) for Mario Kart Wii, them being Hammer Bro, Petey Piranha, and Paratroopa. That was probably how there were three characters. Also, in my opinion, the four Mario Kart 7 newcomers don't count, since they weren't introduced at the time of Mario Kart Wii and no one thought of including them. MarioComix (talk) 16:09, 31 August 2012 (EDT)

Still, it doesn't say 3 to appear in mainstream Mario Kart before Mario Kart Wii, which would still be inaccurate because of R.O.B. Also, the article had listed Paratroopa, Petey Piranha and DK Jr.. So I don't think it came from beta. I added the information so it is solved now. MTORedY.pngYoshi K (talk) Yoshired.png

New Artwork[edit]

  • I was checking the Nintendo eShop earlier, and I noticed that when you go to "Recommendations", a new artwork image of a Koopa Paratroopa can be seen. It does not look like any artwork that exists here, but sadly I can't get a good quality image of what it looks like. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 08:42, 21 October 2012 (EDT)


Paratroopas are referenced twice in partners in time, once when a toad near the thwomp volcano time hole and once in the description for "para slacks". The toad calls them paratroopas but the description calls them parakoopas. RPG Gamer. I HAVE RPG!! (talk) 13:50, 5 April 2013 (EDT)

You can mention this in the article itself. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 13:53, 5 April 2013 (EDT)

Missing Paper Mario Information[edit]

This page is missing the Bestiary Info Boxes for Paper Mario, Paper Mario TTYD and Super Paper Mario. Hellmasterbg (talk) 02:06, 12 June 2014 (EDT)

Blue Paratroopa[edit]

With the exception of one blue koopa in New super Mario Bros, blue koopas have never appeared as a species (Excluding Paper Mario Npcs) However, in mario Kart 8, on Piranha Plant slide or Cloudtop Cruise, blue paratroopas as well as red and green appear in the audience. This marks the first appearence of a blue paratroopa, infact many. This is even stranger due to the fact that while Red and Green and Yellow but not blue Paratroopas appeared in super mario world. Could this be noted as trivia? (I am aware that Parakarry is a blue paratroopa)Toadbrigade5 (talk) 23:02, 31 August 2014 (EDT)

Oh, right, blue paratroopas from Bowser's inside story. But still.Toadbrigade5 (talk) 23:22, 31 August 2014 (EDT)

Quote is wrong[edit]

Sorry but it's "Shell Shock three, weapons free. Let's light him up. Over." as in military speak, not "light him up over" like it says now. Toadbrigade5(Sorry for forgetting to log in)

Okay, I changed it. MarioComix (talk) 21:17, 27 September 2014 (EDT)

uh so[edit]

I forgot to add a summary. i'll just say this. Paratroopa has appeared in Mario Hoops 3 on 3. You can revert this if you want. --Toad the Mushroom (talk) 18:27, 27 January 2015 (EST)


Shouldn't this be moved to Paratroopa considering that's the most modern name? Niiue (talk) 21:59, 13 September 2015 (EDT)

They were stilled called "Koopa Paratroopas" in their SSB4 trophies, so the name's hardly been phased out entirely, and so we might as well keep the current name rather than uprooting the page. Besides, I'd worry about potentially losing search engine traffic if we downgrade our article from the full name while other wikis keep the full one. - Walkazo 12:50, 13 November 2015 (EST)


I have an idea for a new quote for the top of the page: "I ain't no stinkin boid!" from Paper Mario: Color Splash. Does anyone like this or prefer the current quote, or can think of another one? Master of Masters KHXBC.png Keyblade Master

The phonetic accent on that may confuse people without context. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:36, October 6, 2020 (EDT)
I'd prefer not to since that accent isn't exactly typical of Paratroopas. --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 13:43, October 6, 2020 (EDT)
I admit that I didn't take the accent into account, so I guess we'll leave the quote as it is now then. Master of Masters KHXBC.png Keyblade Master
