Item Type Vehicle
First Appearance Super Mario Maker 2 (2019)

Koopa Troopa Cars are vehicles that debut in Super Mario Maker 2, and are exclusive to the Super Mario 3D World style. They are small, green cars operated by Koopa Troopas. Initially, the Koopa Troopa is sleeping, but should Mario come close enough, they will awaken and begin driving into him. By jumping on the Koopa Troopa's head, Mario can take control of the Koopa Troopa Car.

When operating it, the Koopa Troopa Car will accelerate automatically, so the player simply has to change what direction they drive in. They can also jump, allowing them to clear gaps. Driving into enemies can also defeat them, and even Meowser can be defeated by jumping on him with it enough times. Players must be careful while driving it though, as crashing it into obstacles such as walls three times will destroy the Koopa Troopa Car.


Super Mario Spikers

Super Smash Bros. Charged

Koopa Troopa drives a Koopa Troopa Car for the entirety of its moveset in Super Smash Bros. Charged. As in Super Mario Maker 2, the Koopa Troopa Car can damage opponents just by running into them. However, every time it takes 50% it will be broken, removing its ability to damage opponents while running after being broken once, and lowering its stats after each break. The car can repair itself gradually, and even faster if Koopa Troopa's attacks hit opponents.



  • The Koopa Troopa Car may be based off of the Koopa Chase, Bowser's vehicle that he uses during his boss battles in Super Mario 3D World.
    • Despite this, neither Bowser nor Meowser can be placed inside a Koopa Troopa Car in Super Mario Maker 2.
