Paratroopa (although commonly misrefered to as Parakoopa) is a driver in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. His Special Item is three Red Shells. He has a red shell instead of a green shell, and has wings. His special item follows the racer in front of him, instead of bouncing off the walls. He is originally a partner of Koopa Troopa's, but you can mix him up with anybody else just as well. He is not featured in any other Mario Kart game.
Paratroopa, one of Bowser's minions in the Mario series, is very similar to Koopa Troopa, except the fact that Paratroopa is has a red color scheme and Koopa Troopa is green. He resemebles a turtle, like all the Koopas, and has red boots. Paratroopa also has a set of wings, probably to fly with (so why does he need a kart?). The rest of his body (head, torso, arms and legs) are different colors of yellow. And he always smiles. That's an important piece of information there.
- Paratroopa was originally going to appear in Mario Kart Wii, but he was scrapped.
