BIRTHPLACE Koopa Village, Mushroom Kingdom Koopasburg (Super Koopa Mario!)
CLASS Partner

Kooper is a Koopa Troopa from Koopa Village in the Mushroom Kingdom. He grew up next door to the koopa troopa Kolorado and had a lust for adventure which he finally got to exploit when Mario came to his village asking for help.

After the events of the original Paper Mario Kooper signed himself up as Kolorado's protege and soon found that archaeology is more paper work than anything else however when Kolorado had a mission to go to the Dry Dry Ruins in the Dry Dry Desert Kooper signed himself up immediatly. When the mission was done, Kooper moved to Koopasburg.

Kooper is eager to explore and go on adventures and is very loyal to his friends. He has the ability to hit far away switches with his shell or bring far away items closer.

Disdain for the mentor

Kooper appears with his "mentor" Kolorado in Wrapped Up however where he once respected, looked up to and admired the senior arcehologist he now loathes and resents him for the trials and tribulations he has put him through. However he sticks it out with him partly due to loyalty and because he secretly enjoys the adventures he gets to go on. He appears trailing behind Kolorado and vents his frustration to Iron and Amber occasionally providing an insight to things his mentor may have missed. He appears throught the mushroom kingdom stages like his boss. He is playable in multiplayer mode.
