Kooper is a very brave, young Koopa in the first Paper Mario game. Mario meets him in Koopa Village when it is being raided by Fuzzies. One of the Fuzzies has stolen Kooper's Shell, and Mario agrees to find it. After Mario retrieves the shell, Kooper joins his group. Kooper is able to retreat inside his shell and hit things such as switches in areas Mario cannot reach. This move can be used in battle to hit enemies. Kooper's other moves include Power Shell, which attacks all enemies in battle, Dizzy Shell, a move which makes enemies dizzy, making them miss attacks, and Fire Shell, an attack which can defeat enemies such as Dry Bones in one hit.
