Koops is a young Koopa Troopa appearing in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door as Mario's second party member.

Biography

Past

Koops hails from Petalburg, a small village east of Rogueport. Ten years before the start of the game, his father, Koopley had been eaten by the dragon, Hooktail.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, he first appears as a rather shy and timid fellow, however he joins Mario on his quest to Hooktail Castle in order to impress his girlfriend, Koopie Koo. After defeating Hooktail, the dragon spits out Koops' long lost father and both have a fond reunion. Koops then accompanies Mario and Goombella for the rest of their adventure.

After the events of the game, he starts making plans for his future, deciding to marry Koopie Koo and run for Mayor of Petalburg.

Super Paper Mario

Although Koops does not physically appear in Super Paper Mario, he does make a cameo in the form of a Catch Card.

Attacks

As a partner, Koops can quickly retreat into his shell and then get kicked by Mario. During this phase, Koops will recover any items he touches and bring them back to Mario, making his ability much like the Boomerang from the Legend of Zelda series.
