A Koopa Paratroopa (often shortened to just Paratroopa) is a Koopa Troopa with wings. A red Paratroopa made an appearance in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!.

Paratroopa's model was created by adding the wings from the Blue Shell item and putting them on Koopa Troopa's back. Koopa Troopa already had bones for wings but nothing was attached to them previously.
