The Koopalings are a clan of Koopa-like children with a close relation to Bowser. The term originally debuted in Super Mario Bros. 3, with the introduction of the canonical seven Koopalings: Iggy Koopa, Larry Koopa, Lemmy Koopa, Ludwig von Koopa, Morton Koopa Jr., Roy Koopa and Wendy O. Koopa. The group has worked alongside many other fanon Koopaling characters, as well as Bowser Jr. on occasion.

According to Nintendo, the original Koopalings are unrelated to Bowser and Bowser Jr.. Of all the Koopalings, only Dolly P. Koopa, Gwendoline T. Koopa, Kevin Koopa and Bowser Jr. are Bowser's children.

According to Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Larry Koopa is considered the leader of the Koopalings.

List of Koopalings

Every Koopaling has his/her own personality and looks, though some newer fanon Koopalings resemble some original ones. Some have different skins at birth, others got them by other manners; some Koopalings even wear clothes as well. There are also a few Koopalings who resemble their father, Bowser. A large group of Koopalings are actually adopted, and not the biological children of Bowser.

Here is a list of the Koopalings, split into Canon and Fanon. The fanon Koopalings themselves are divided into Bowser's children, Becki Koopa's children, Adopted With Reasoning, Mythical Koopalings, Adopted With No Specific Reasoning, Other, Aivalings, and Joke Articles. They are listed by age in descending order.

Canon Koopalings


All confirmed Koopalings are adopted, except for Bowser Jr.

Character Description
Possibly the smartest of all Koopalings, Ludwig von Koopa is the oldest of the original seven. He creates classical music and inventions and dislikes it when people annoy him. He can also be cocky and a bit of a show-off.
Lemmy Koopa NSMBU.png
While the smallest of all Koopalings, Lemmy Koopa is yet the second oldest of the original seven. He is kind of dim witted in a child-like way and has more interest in becoming a circus star than beating Mario.
Roy Koopa is big and bulky Koopaling that resembles a hooligan thanks to the glasses. He seems to like the colors pink and purple, and bullies most of the Koopalings.
The craziest of the Koopalings, Iggy Koopa has been said to be an inventor. He originally looked like Lemmy (aside from for glasses and teeth), but he later became even taller than Morton Jr., and gained a plant-like hairdo.
Wendy O. Koopa Artwork.png
Wendy O. Koopa is the only female of the original Koopalings, and a bossy, spoiled Koopaling that throws hissy fits when she doesn't get her way.
The largest of the canon bunch, Morton Koopa Jr. is a Koopaling with a different skin color, which resembles Morton Sr's skin color. Earlier canon shows him to be talkative and sometimes annoying, but more recent games have him shout simple words in all-caps.
Larry Koopa is the sneakiest of all Koopalings, and occasionally the leader of the group, despite being the youngest of the canon Koopalings. Can have quite the temper.
Bowser Jr NSMBU.png
Bowser Jr.
Bowser's favorite child and the most recent canon one. Bowser Jr. is a spoiled brat who always gets special treatment from Bowser, like gettng his own Koopa Clown Car while the other Koopalings didn't (until 2014), and going on exclusive missions with Bowser.

The Koopalings are the main bosses of the game. They work for Bowser again, and they are the ruler of the first 7 castle. Nothing much more than that is specified by the creator of this game. Morton is the first boss, Wendy is second, Larry is third, Ludwig is fourth, Roy is fifth, Iggy is sixth and Lemmy is last Koopalings to fought.

Lets-a-go, Mario

The Koopalings appear in Lets-a-go, Mario, again, as bosses. However, they only appear in the Nostalgic Area and some DLC Areas.

Each of them are fought in their own airships, unlike the previous NSMB titles. This time the Koopalings aren't so easy to take down, as they are stronger than the previous titles. This time, Roy is the first Koopaling, Wendy's the second, Iggy and Larry are two bosses on the same plan, as the player can choose to have to deal with Tomato Jungle and Banana Beach respectively (just like to Sparkling waters and Frosted Glacier in NSMBU), even though Iggy is technically the third one and Larry the fourth one, Morton the fifth one, Lemmy the sixth one and the second-to last, leaving Ludwig as the last Koopaling to be fought.

Mushroom War

The Koopalings are a collection of villains featured as recurring bosses and allies in the online game, Mushroom War. In this game, their actual relation to Bowser is specified: The Koopalings are revealed to in fact be King Bowser's children, which he fathered with his since-deceased spouse; however, with their multitude of failures to stop the Mario brothers, Bowser has since officially disowned them all, and now favors his youngest son, Bowser, Jr. However, each has been afforded a small parcel of land, becoming vassals of Bowser's great Dark Kingdom, while Bowser Jr is the rightful heir to the throne. The Koopa Kids are also revealed to be direct clones of Bowser, and as such, the three remaining loyal Koopa Kids can, on occasion, be seen trying to boss the Koopalings around or even insisting on them calling the Kids "dad", "father", or "pops", depending on which Koopa Kid is being insistent.

For those who choose to side with Bowser and the Koopa Troop, the Koopalings act as quest givers instead of bosses, often providing small skirmish missions to raid other kingdoms but also attempts to sabotage the other Koopalings' duchies.

He uses his magic wand to attack, jumps on you, and hits you and your partner with his shell.

  • Lemmy appears in the Craft Box in Chapter 4, performing for a group of Shy Guys instead of getting the Emerald Crystal. He has 20 HP, 2 attack, and 1 defense.

He rams you while in his shell, launches Bullet Bills at you, launches a Bullseye Bill that pierces Defense, and does a flipping slam that launches two Bullet Bills. He can also summon two Bullseye Bills into the fight. After his defeat, his bazooka jams and blows up in his face, knocking him unconscious.

  • ​​​​​​​Morton appears in Chapter 14, as one of Bowser's enforcers. He has a Max HP of 80, attack of 6, and defense of 4. He attacks with shell slams, hammer swings, flipping hammer strikes, boulder kicking, ground pounding, and his equivalent of Fire Drive. Upon defeat, he stomps enough to drop a rock form nearby on his head, knocking him out.​​​​​​​

New Super Dry Bones Bros.

When Dark Bowser succeeded in kidnapping all the Dry Bones (Minus Dark Bones), he mind-controlled the now heartbroken Koopalings, save for Morton who he kept as a slave. They appear in the Castle of each world.

  • Larry Koopa (Leafy Plains): Simply runs around and shoots blue fireballs from his wand. The walls close in on the player, making the arena smaller, every round.
  • Morton Koopa Jr. (Dairy Desert): Runs around and shoots purple fireballs. Puts up a similar fight to Larry, although he shoots fireballs more often and his fireballs are faster. Lava bubbles will begin showing up once you stomp on him once.
  • Wendy O. Koopa (Peanut Poolside): Jumps around and calls for Cheep Cheeps to attack the player. Sometimes, Cheep Cheeps come out of pipes on the walls of the arena, especially later on in the fight.
  • Iggy Koopa (Pyre Pillar): Jumps about and shoots green fireballs in sets of three. Sometimes, he'll shoot a single red fireball which, if it touches the lava beneath the arena, creates a giant mouth that attempts to eat the player.
  • Lemmy Koopa (Frosted Falls): Rides on his ball, in a frozen room with icicles of various lengths. He will often jump or shoot golden fireballs in sets of three to knock these icicles down.
  • Ludwig von Koopa (Misty Mount): Shoots homing blue fireballs. Should you stomp on him, four blue fireballs will appear and attempt to home in on the player during his Shell Spin. The arena is full of moving platforms and has spikes on the ceiling.
  • Roy Koopa (Savvy Skies): Fights on a platform held by a chain over lava, complete with Lava Bubbles. Mostly shoots bouncing pink fireballs which turn into Lava Bubbles if they hit the lava, but also uses Ground Pounds that, while they don't stun the player, release blue shockwaves that deal damage. After two stomps, he now releases purple shockwaves which are taller and thus harder to avoid.
  • Bowser Jr. (Pyre Pillar, Misty Mount and Bowser's Castle): Tosses Bob-Oms in sets of two (three in his third phase) as well as fireballs and Mechakoopas from his Junior Clown Car. The player must use Propeller Blocks to get high enough to land a hit. In Bowser's Castle, he now rides the Koopa Clown Car and shoots giant spiked bombs which must be launched at him with a ground-pound.

New Super Mario World

All the seven Koopalings will appear in the upcoming Switch Game New Super Mario World. In this game, they're shown to be faithful servants of Bowser, but it's hinted here and there that they're genuinely worried about their boss' ambitions, which in this game have to do with the ancient and dangerous powers of the late Duke Orion. They're ordered by Bowser anyway to invade all the kingdoms of the Duke Orion to steal the seven amulets who have kept the Duke magic quiet for 1500 years; Iggy is ordered to take care of the first world, Kibble Valley, Roy invades the second world, Nut Wasteland, Wendy is given the third world, Coconout Waterpark, Ludwig guards the fourth world, Rotten Glacier, Morton rules over the fifth world, Crispy Forest, Lemmy controls the sixth world, Sugary Canyon, and Larry is ordered to keep an eye on the seventh world, Cheese Moon City. Each Koopalings brings havoc in their respective world and causes some major plot events: Iggy for one unleashes the Scoundrogoss rage on Kibble Valley (likely referencing The Baskerville Hound). They all come back in Bowser's Pit-Castle, to try to stop Mario and his friends all together. They however survive the fight, and it's soon revealed that the fight was just a trap for Bowser to steal all the 7 amulets all together. The Koopalings follow their leader up to the final castle, where they realize Duke Orion has taken over Bowser and that their own safety is in danger. Thus, in a curious twist, they aid Mario and his friends in the final battle, launching over the battlefield Power-Ups, or destroying some minor obstacles.

Mario & Luigi Partners in Time + Ludwig's Legend

The seven canon Koopalings appear as playable characters in the side story Ludwig's Legend. They each have their own movesets and statistics, making gameplay varied. A younger version of Ludwig also makes his debut in this game.


All of the Koopalings, including deleted ones, will appear in DanganKoopa as major characters. In this game, they are all students with ultimate talents who attend Kaen Academy.

St. Clair Publications

  • The Koopalings appear in Koopa Troopa, as allies. However, you can only use them (and Bowser Jr.) in this capacity close to the end of the game, after you've overthrown Bowser and are preparing for the final battle against Mario and the Mushroom Kingdom. They are NPC's until then.
  • The Koopalings are playable characters on Super Smash Stadium. On this show, they are actually separate characters from Bowser Jr., and as such, have their own moveset. They debuted alongside Mushroom Kingdom 3, late in the show's second season. The Koopalings are also unique in that each "costume" has separate stats. The "costumes" go in the order you fight them in Super Mario Bros. 3, and the eighth "costume" is a Lost Koopaling that appears only in beta elements for Super Mario World 1.


  • In the official guide for Super Mario Bros. 3, Boom Boom was dubbed the "Forgotten Koopaling".
  • Kevin, Bowser Jr., Gwendoline and Dolly are the only ones that are Bowser's biological children.
  • Larry, Morton, Wendy, Iggy, Roy, Lemmy, Ludwig, and Bowser Jr. are the only ones with their own personal Koopa Clown Car. This is likely due to them being the only canonical Koopalings.
    • However, Jackson, Pietro and Iago have their own personal Clown Cars as well, although Jackson stole his from Bowser Jr. and customized it.
  • The Koopalings appear to have inspired other similar squads.
