Hello, We meet again Mario. As I always do, I will surely destroy you as I go to rule the universe. Do not worry, I shall make this quick. But, this will only hurt a lot! HA HA HA!
Ludwig von Koopa, Super Mario Crystalline World

Ludwig von Koopa is one of the Koopalings. He is the oldest out of the canon seven and the second oldest of Bowser's twenty-six sons.



Ludwig was Bowser's second in command until Bowser Jr. was born.


Ludwig is considered the most intellectual and intelligent of all of the original Koopalings. Back in 2012 when he was 15, he was a mad scientist who had the nickname Kooky. Today, at age 25, he is known to enjoy composing what he calls "Koopa Symphonies" and being mean. He prefers being around Bowser Jr., thinking he is very cute but also believing he's in his way because Bowser likes him a little more, and frequents around Roy. However, it is rumored that he had once developed a gruesome grudge towards Junior, stated in the Super Mario Madness instruction booklet. He is also mean to Alex Ember Koopa, but not always. Ludwig is often showcased as self centered and arrogant. He'll often betray the other Koopalings to save himself. He is also often seen reading, being quite fond of that and other quieter activities. Despite this selfish and standoffish attitude, he still secretly cares deeply for his siblings.


Like most of the Koopalings, he has a spiked shell, yellow scales, and the ability to breathe fire. What sets him apart is his wild blue hair and his overbite, which is a single fang in the center of his upper lip.

Ludwig's old look.


Ludwig is able to breathe fire, shoot electrical charges from his fingertips, teleport, flutter jump, fire magical bolts from his scepter, and has recently been shown to know how to operate a Lakitu cloud. He is also shown to be a great tactician, as he commands the army with great skill in several games. It is implied that if Bowser and his son didn't get in the way, he could singlehandedly conquer the Mushroom Kingdom.

Ludwig's Plot

Ludwig von Koopa is the Final Boss in Super Luigi Land: Ludwig's Plot. In this game, he is on also the Secret boss for Worlds 1,2,4, and 7. In the World 1 Airship, he breathes both sprays of fire and fireballs. In World 2, teleports from place to place, shoot electric bolts from his fingertips. In World 4, he flies in a Lakitu's cloud throwing random items like Bob-ombs, Koopa Shells, Fireballs and electric bolts. In World 7, he also Flutter jumps and uses a secret ability: he can ground pound, aggressively trying to attack you. In the World 8 Final Battle, he rides a Lakithunder cloud and throws fireballs as well as shooting lightning bolts. Once stomped once, he gets out and he utilizes every move that he used in the other worlds, making him extremely difficult to defeat.

 Super Mario RPG the quest of koopa

Ludwig was on the Doomship. He gave Mario advice. At the end he felt a little guilty that his dad King Koopa double crossed Bowser who taught him how to breathe fire and do other amazing stuff. At the end of the game he and his siblings got adopted by Bowser.

Lets-a-go, Mario

Ludwig's sprite in Lets-a-go, Mario

Ludwig Von Koopa reappears along with the other 6 Koopalings as the bosses of the Nostalgia Area in Lets-a-go, Mario. Like in New Super Mario Bros. 2, he has three chains on his ceiling. Like the others, he can breathe fire. He will occasionally jump near but not on the player as a fake-out. Sometimes, he will do a very high jump, followed by a flutter jump. Ludwig will flutter over the player, and after a while, he will do one of three things. He can either attempt to ground pound on to the player, teleport back to the ground, or stay in the air and create two duplicates of himself - similar to New Super Mario Bros. U. The three proceed to spit fire at the player. Like in that game, the real one will spit three fireballs, and the duplicates are either darker and lighter. If he creates duplicates, he will spawn three Rocket Pipes for the player to attack Ludwig. If the other two are destroyed first, the real one will laugh mockingly and do a huge ground pound. This creates several shockwaves which must be jumped over. His personal minions are Sledge Bros., Bony Beetles, and Climbing Koopa Troopas.

He reappears with the other 6 Koopalings in HURRY UP! in the last part of the stage, again as a boss. He is the last Koopaling to fall off of the Koopa Clown Car. There, he attacks by creating a pair of duplicates, who simultaneously fire pairs of magic blasts at the player while the real one fires three blasts. Like his brothers and sister, he falls off after he is hit by one of his own projectiles after it was reflected by Tornado Mario.

Super Paper Mario 2: Rock, Paper, Scissors

Paper Ludwig

Ludwig is the 13th boss of this game being just after Mrs. R, to defeat Ludwig you can, summon a some scissors, but put your self in danger, summon a rock and make it harder to defeat him or summon some paper, this will make both of you stronger. The best way to defeat him is to summon some paper and some scissors, then cut out a weapon then battle him with scissors and you weapon. There is a glitch in his battle if you play as Princess Mimi Ludwig will walk on the walls instead of the floor. I KNOW he looks Derpy.

New Super Mario Bros. 6:The Great Journey

Ludwig appears the most out of all the Koopalings,and actually was mostly seen with Alex,either fighting Mario,or fighting each other.Ludwig did not fight in one battle,rather he issued orders and was one of the only koopalings needed to take down.

Newer Super Mario Bros U

Ludwig Von koopa reappears in this game as the mini-boss of the world 7: Grassland.

Super Mario and the 8 Elemental Crystals

Ludwig reappers in this game as the boss of Ludwig's Flooded Castle in World 4: Shoreline Beach.

Super Mario Bros.: Fury Combined!

Ludwig appears in this game as the boss of World 3: Wave Waters. Similar to the other Koopalings, he is faced twice in his world.

Super Mario World Ultimate

Ludwig reappears as the boss of World 7: Malt Snowfields. His battle, like the other Koopalings is similar to New Super Mario Bros. U. He flies up and clones himself with one twist, your on an icy floor, which makes it harder to avoid the barrage of magic fireballs. Wait till the last one comes down and hit that one—that the real one. Repeat twice to defeat.

Super Mario Bros. 5

Ludwig, along with the rest of the Koopalings and Bowser, appears in Super Mario Bros. 5.

Episode I

Ludwig serves as the first Koopaling boss to be fought, specifically in the world Brooklyn.

Episode II

Ludwig serves as the fourth Koopaling boss to be fought, specifically in the world Tornado Spires.

Wario & Waluigi: Golden Pyramid Raid

He appears as the sixth Koopaling to be fought.  In his battle, he can create clones of himself that shoot large blasts of magic at you, but the real one fires the biggest.  The clones will remain until jumped on.  Not only that, he can breathe fire that homes towards the player.  He spends most of the time far above ground, meaning that Wario and Waluigi need to fly up using one of the special orbs that come.  Once they have jumped on the real Ludwig's head, he'll get into his shell and ram around the arena three times before he gets out again.  Hit him twice more to defeat him.

He rebattles you after you finish the first half of stage 8, this time in a mech.  He can fire multiple fire balls, jump around, and destroy platforms.  To hit him, you need to get inside the mech and hit Ludwig.  Once you hit him, he'll fire his weapons faster and will start using stronger weapons like spiked maces and missiles.  He can even start using a giant laser cannon.  Once you hit him 6 times in total, he will go down in defeat waving the white flag.

Pipes Won't Save You Now!

Ludwig conquered the Pipe Maze again during Godzilla vs. Bowser. He even tramsformed the true king into a Venus Fire Trap again. He was then beaten up badly by Gigan.

Super Koopaling World

His new look, in the style of Super Mario Bros. 3.

Ludwig and his siblings appear in Super Koopaling World. Ludwig is saved in World 6: Pipe World. He can flutter, ground pound, shoot Bob-bombs with has scepter and he could flutter-kick.

Going Blue

Ludwig is a boss for Blue Cavern in Super Mario 3D Overload. He will shoot fire at you when you are far, and if you jump, he jumps. And lastly, if you fly, he will flutter after you. Oh yeah, if you jump on him, he spins around like Boom Boom, but twice as fast. And defeating him gives you the blue rainbow shard.

New Super Mario Bros U 2:Legend of the Rainbow Stars

Ludwig appears with his brothers and sister in this game. He is the boss of World 7:Cotton Candy Clouds. To defeat him, collect a Koopa shell he throws you and send it back while he is not on spiky mode.

New Super Mario World (3DS)

Ludwig will reappear in New Super Mario World (3DS) as a boss. He'll be, specifically, the fourth Koopaling boss, unlike the previous titles, where he was the seventh Koopaling to be fought. He's fought at the end of the snow-themed world, the Sweet Glacier. He'll act just like to NSMBU, but there will be some differences. There will be cold lava under the battleground, and the some of the rays Ludwig will launch (only the light blue ones) may cause the cold lava to rise. There will be 3 platforms wich will float on the cold lava. Since Ludwig, unlike in NSMBU, will never land, the only way to hit him will be to wait until he launches a light bue ray, that will cause the lava, and the platforms that floats on it by extension, to rise.

His room will resemble an opera theatre, somewhat based on La Scala theatre on Milan.

This is the first time he isn't the last Koopaling to be fought since SMW.

Mario & Luigi: Heroes Through Time

Ludwig returns as the mid-boss of World 5. He fights the player in a game of Doubles Tennis (Mario and Luigi VS Ludwig and a Mechakoopa), using his Blue Fireballs as balls. Bat them back at Ludwig to damage him, causing him to shell-spin. His third hit will defeat him, allowing the player to proceed.

Yoshi's Brand New Island: Baby Bonanza!

Ludwig is taken by Bowser to the past to cause a load of mischief while Bowser captures Baby Peach. Ludwig's choice of kingdom to kidnap is Pipe Land, and doing so turns the king into a Fuzzy.

Ludwig is fought in World 5. His arena consists of a bridge of Brick Blocks, and his battle tactics are those from New Super Mario Bros. U. He is also fought as the boss of this world in the Boomsday Device, using it to attack Yoshi with homing Bullet Bills. The player must use the Bullet Bills to reach Ludwig, then ground-pound his container on the top, forcing him to shell-spin. In both fights, three hits will defeat him.

He is also fought alongside Giga Bowser as the boss of World 6.

New Super Mario Bros. Lambda

Ludwig appears in New Super Mario Bros. Lambda along with the other Classic 7 Koopalings. He is the Boss of World 7, Foo Skyline.

Star Team Heroes
