They resemble a hybrid between a Koopa and a chameleon. They have a blue shell, green skin, large eyes, and a curled tail.
Koopeleons have the ability to turn invisible in battle. During its attack, a Koopeleon will try to run into its foe to deliver damage, which can be counterattacked with a jump. When a Koopeleon attacks, it will also turn invisible. If damaged, a Koopeleon will become visible again.
Koopeleons take increased damage from fire attacks, such as the Fire Flower.
A stronger variant of the Koopeleon, called the Gold Koopeleon, appears later in the game in the Thwomp Caverns.
