Super Mario World

Act the same as its predecessor, but they get an extremely new design. Instead walking like turtles, they use their feet. They are uncommon, acting like previous games.

New Super Mario Bros.

Paratroopas make their first ever appearance on a New Super Mario Bros. game. They are more common, but unlike in Super Mario World, whenever Yoshi jumps on a Koopa Paratroopa, it simply loses its wings, instead of being defeated instantly, but a ground pound still takes one out with a single blow.

Super Mario Maker

Koopa Paratroopas are enemies in Super Mario Maker, just like in past 2D Mario games. They can be created by combining a Koopa Troopa with a pair of wings. Green Paratroopas continuously leap on the ground in a zig-zag pattern, while the Paratroopas of red variety fly up and down on a vertical route. The player can enlarge Koopa Paratroopas by dragging a Super Mushroom onto them and they will then become Colossal Koopa Paratroopas.

In the Mario Kart series

Paratroopa is a character in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. His Special Item is three Red Shells or three Green Shell. He has a red shell instead of a green shell, and has wings. He is originally a partner of Koopa Troopa's, but you can mix him up with anybody else just as well. He didn't appear as a driveable character in any other Mario Kart game.

Karts


Mario Power Tennis

Paratroopa is an unlockable character in Mario Power Tennis. He is unlocked after completing the tournament for the first time. For his offensive power shot, he engulfs the ball in a purple light and lobs it, causing the opponent to slow down temporarily if they hit it. For his defensive power shot, he jumps into the air and flies at the ball.

Tip(s)

If you are in an area were there is a big gap that is too big to jump across but a Paratroopa is flying in above the gap, you can use the Paratroopa by hopping on it and bouncing off of it to get to the other side easier. You have go do this sometimes to beat the level.

Trivia
