Koopalings Koopalings Villain(s) A whole lot of fanon Koopalings have been added to the group lately, but shown here are the original seven known. They are the children of Bowser, and have been causing havoc around the Mushroom World since their debut. Stealing scepters and transforming kings, taking over the Dinosaur World, creating zany hotels with crazy traps... those are just a few examples.----

Ludwig is the eldest of the first seven with navy, styled disheveled hair. He's the smartest of the group. Next come Lemmy, the surprisingly shortest, and probably most dim-witted of the originals. He likes balancing on his yellow ball and has a colorful Mohawk. The bald, burly Roy follows who has always been a bully and wears sunshades. He thinks pink is a manly color.

PeteyPiranhaPlant Petey Piranha Villain An abnormally large, flowery, walking Piranha Plant who leads the said species. He's the first boss encountered in Super Mario Sunshine, and since then, still a recurring boss. Though it is questioned he wants to beat Mario because he's his or Bowser's enemy. Petey's usually hungry or lazy, so he might see Mario as a little snack, or the plumber might have wakened the huge Piranha Plant up. Petey is able to spit goop, to create gusts, and, strangely, to fly around. Super Mario Sunshine
