Gargantua Koopas first appear in Super Mario Bros. 3 where they can be found exclusively in Big Island. Aside from them, Grand Goombas and Piranhaci Gigantici, they all reside on Big Island trying to attack Mario or Luigi. Like normal Koopas, they hide in their shells when jumped on and can be kicked around too.
