Paratroopa also known as Parakoopas or Koopa Paratroopas are winged Koopa Troopas that are like living stools. They are great for getting across hazardous drops. One was invited to the Double Dash!! go karting tournament as Koopa's partner. Some Parakoopas hop up and down while others move up and down or left and right while some move in circles and rarely stay in one spot.
