Magikoopas (カメック, Kamekku) are creatures who wear a blue hat, robes, and spectacles and use a magic rod to cast spells. At first glance they don't appear to be a koopa, but at closer inspection one notices the structure of the mouth and concludes they are indeed koopas. They first appeared in the famous SNES Mario game Super Mario World. A member of the species, Kamek, babysat Bowser when Bowser was a baby.
In Mario KartEdit
In pre-release screenshots of Mario Kart 64, a Magikoopa was playable, but before the game's final release the he was replaced by Donkey Kong. Also in Mario Kart: Super Circuit one can be seen near the end of Bowser Castle 3 hovering back and forth. He did not appear in the reincarnation of it in Mario Kart Wii, but a bike shaped like a Magikoopa, the Magikruiser, can be unlocked in the game.
