Roy appears as the fifth boss of the game. He has conquered Sky Land. To beat him the player must jump on his head. However, in addition to shoot wand rings, he can jump in his shell and cause an earthquake which temporarily pins Mario to the ground. Although Roy is stronger than the others, three bounces on the head will take care of him. His debut was in this very game.

Super Mario World

Roy is once again the fifth boss of this game. To beat him you must do the usual three-jumps-on-the-head routine. Roy's attacks include running up the walls and stomping down in his shell like Morton. In addition to this, the walls of the room are constantly closing in on them, even when Roy is stunned. So the player had better get whacking before the walls get them cracking!

Unlike his past appearances, where he was the fifth Koopaling that the player had to fight, Roy appears in World 2 instead. He is first fought in the Tower level. In battle, Roy will make jumps and ground pounds. If Mario doesn't jump when Roy lands on the ground, he'll be stunned by the shockwave, leaving him vulnerable. Roy's magic is pink in color and will hurt Mario if he comes in contact with it. Like most other bosses, three stomps on the head will defeat him. In the castle Kamek, helps him by magically bringing down pipes that Roy can use. Roy will then jump into a random Warp Pipe and start shuffling around. He'll then jump out of a pipe and make a huge shockwave, stunning Mario. Not only will Mario jump while he lands to avoid his shockwaves, but he also has to be careful not to be crushed by Roy from above. After three stomps, Roy is defeated.


Magic Wand:Like most Koopalings, he can shoot magic out of his wand, Roy's magic color is purple, he somehow can use it very fast.

Ground Pound:Roy has the ability to ground-pound, if the player character is standing or running, his/her character will be paralyzed, leaving an opening for Roy.
