Copter KoopaSMWWii

A Copter Koopa.

Copter Koopas are actually just regular Koopa Troopas who wish to fly, appearing in the Super Mario series. This type of Koopa must have their shell painted tan in order to sport the propeller. Once the propeller is attached, the Koopas will be able to float on air (like a helicopter) and attack their enemy from above.

Their roles have varied over their appearances. While introduced as enemies in their debut, they were rideable similar to Yoshi in Super Mario Panic.
