Paratroopa is an enemy that first appeared in Super Mario Bros. Paratroopas are simply Koopa Troopas with wings and a red shell. Mario can do away with these flying turtles by first stomping them to knock their wings off, then stomping them a second time to defeat them. Supposedly, the shells of a red Paratroopa act like heat-seeking missiles when deployed from a Kart, as seen in the Mario Kart series.
