Terra Cottas are advanced versions of the Terrapin soldiers that appeared in Bowser's Keep in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Their name comes from "Terrapin", but is also a pun on the ceramic terra cotta. As well as having |red shell, Terra Cottas further distinguish themselves from their green-shelled Terrapin brethren by wielding swords in battle. Though they changed sides and worked for the Smithy Gang, they are easily scared off by Bowser.
