Magikoopas are a subspecies of Koopa Troopas that first appeared in Super Mario World.


They can cast spells. They wear blue robes and hats resembling the garb of a wizard, and wield golden wands. They are generally considered to be high-ranking members of the Koopa Troop, and some act as personal advisers for King Bowser Koopa. Kamek, the leader of the Magikoopas, appeared in several installments of the Yoshi series. He was usually the main villain or assistant to the main villain. Kamek was the only Magikoopa that appeared in the Yoshi games.


Super Mario World

This was the first appearance of the Magikoopa. They mostly appear in fortresses, and the magic from their wands can turn the rotating blocks into Yellow Shelled Koopa Troopas. where Kamek is called by name in the PAL region but is called "Magikoopa" in the North American version. However, this also works in reverse, meaning that Kamek in said PAL versions is a generic Magikoopa.

Magikoopas appear in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and the remake as enemies in Bowser's Castle. Magikoopas are one of the enemies hijacked by Bowletta. On the map, when they see Mario and Luigi, they create fire that follows the Bros.. Magikoopas accompany Sniper Bills and Chomp Bros.. They are vulnerable to any damage. Magikoopas are more likely to be stunned. They create large fire rings to attack Mario and Luigi that can be dodged by jumping. The ring may start at either side and come through Mario or Luigi first. The ring may come immediately towards Mario, then it comes back. They boost their stats or other enemies.

In the remake, they are sitting on their brooms.
