Original Appearance:

Super Mario Bros. (1986)

Koopa Troopas are the backbone of Bowser's army and one of his most commonly used soldiers. These loyal but not too bright turtles are frequently pitted Mario, Luigi and their friends during their adventures against Bowser.

History Edit

Koopas first appeared as Bowser's minions in the original Super Mario Bros. on the NES, and have shown up nearly every game since. They all have the same basic strategy of patrolling a single area and charging at Mario on sight, though some will have wings and are capable of flight. In other games, such as RPGs, they are more intelligent and can use items or armor to aid them.

Not all Koopas are shown to be evil. Some defected from Bowser's ranks and are capable of living in peace with other Mushroom Kingdom inhabitants. They have also been playable characters in several games, usually sporting events, kart races or parties.

Role in Rakenzarn Edit

Koopas are common NPCs. Like any NPC, they can be talked to for information, items or even Guild Quests.
