|Alter Ego:||Super Larry|
Larry is the first Koopa Kid that Mario must defeat in Super Mario Bros. 3. Here Larry has overthrown the king of Grass Land. Strangely, though in Super Mario Bros. 3, Larry is the first Koopa Kid that Mario faces, he is the last Koopa Kid that Mario must face in Super Mario World.
Larry Koopa was named after Larry King, the host of CNN's Larry King Live.
