The Koopa Paratroopa‘s are a subspecies of the Koopa Troopa found in the Super Mario Bros. series since 1985.

They are recurring minor enemies in almost all Super Mario main series games. Unlike the normal Koopa Troopa, the Koopa Paratroopa has a pair of wings and can fly, dive and do sometimes high jumps.

The Koopa Paratroopa are sometimes playable characters in the Super Mario Sports spinoff games since Mario Tennis (2000) on the Nintendo 64.
