|Koopini, the Magikoopa magician.|
Koopini is a Magikoopa magician member of the Party Planners, and a boss in The Rescue Squad: Birthday Blitz. He is battled in Pangeria of the Magic Kingdom, where he is seen taking the Birthday Kid's Crown.
Like most Magikoopas, Koopini has glasses and red shoes. He wears a black tuxedo with a fuschia undershirt and black buttons. He also wears a green bowtie. Rather than the long, pointy hats Magikoopas commonly wear, Koopini instead wears a top hat, which has a fuschia stripe across the center. His scepter is also quite different from other Magikoopas', being a small, black rod with a white stripe near the top.
Being the eldest of the Party Planners, he is often the most knowledgeable of the group, though is still willing to follow orders from Gustavo. Though previously working under Bowser's army, even training Kamek and Kammy Koopa in their magic abilities, Koopini eventually retired, and joined the team to entertain kids with lighter, more harmless spells at birthday parties. As such, he is great with kids and always willing to perform a trick or two to entertain them. He is, however, quite annoyed with the majority of the other Party Planners, quite likely due to his old age.
Koopini makes his debut in The Rescue Squad: Birthday Blitz. He is a boss alongside the other Party Planners, being battled in Pangeria of the Magic Kingdom. In battle, Koopini will teleport around the arena and fire one of three spells; red ones summon fireballs that bounce across the stage, blue ones create flames that remain on the ground, and green ones summon Goombas. In order to damage him, the player must jump on his head while he is firing spells, which causes him to go in a fit of rage and begin throwing spells left and right. After three hits, Koopini is defeated, and grants the player a Party Star and the Birthday Kid's Crown.
- As it is stated Koopini trained Kamek and Kammy Koopa in the art of magic, he may have been a leader of the Koopa Troop, or at least had a high-rank, before he retired.
