Terra Cottas are advanced versions of the Terrapin soldiers that appear 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 a red shell, Terra Cottas further distinguish themselves from their green-shelled Terrapin brethren by wielding swords in battle. If Bowser is in battle, they, along with Gu Goombas and Malakoopas, will flee early in battle out of fear.
