The battle in the original game

Wizakoopa (originally localized simply as "Magikoopa") is the leader of the Magikoopas in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and its Nintendo Switch remake. He is first seen leading Bowser's troop of Magikoopas in Rose Way and also in Moleville, where his units have dwindled and he complains to Bowser that they are inexperienced with fighting the Smithy Gang. By the time Bowser is met at Booster Tower, he and the rest of Bowser's Minions are nowhere to be seen. Later, he is found at Bowser's Keep. He has been put under mind control to work for Smithy. Wizakoopa first shows up in the battle courses in the Six-Door Chamber, where he summons various enemies. He is encountered again shortly after the chamber, where he attacks Mario's party for trespassing the castle. In battle, Wizakoopa attacks by using magic directly (such as Water Blast, Blizzard, and Flame Wall), and he can also summon monsters—Bahamutt, King Bomb, and Jinx Clone—to fight for and protect him. After being defeated, he returns to normal (signified by his robe changing from red to blue) and apologizes to Bowser. Wizakoopa makes a magic treasure box that has an infinite number of coins appear for the player. He also fully heals the party when spoken to from then on.

Wizakoopa's Thought Peek quote implies a connection to Kamek from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. In the original Japanese script, the quote is 「キイーッウキイーーッ! あの時の赤んぼう!?」 (Kiii ukiii! The baby from that time!?), presumably referring to Baby Mario. In the original English translation, his thought is "That's...my child?" which presumably refers to Baby Bowser. Despite this, Bowser is not required to be in Mario's active party. In the updated localization from the remake, the original line is translated more accurately to presumably refer to Baby Mario.

Unused battle setups from the original game reveal that the red-robed Magikoopa was originally intended as a generic enemy for Bowser's Keep rather than a specific boss character.[1]

In the original game, Wizakoopa's battle sprite is very large, appearing around the size of Bowser despite being around Mario's size in the overworld. In the remake, Wizakoopa is consistently around Mario's size.

With Wizakoopa's magical treasure box, having 9,999 coins is no mere fantasy. Just be careful not to hit it so much that your arm cramps.

Eep! Is that the baby from so long ago?
