Dark Koopas are crazy Koopas. They spin in their shells almost all the time. Dark Koopas can also create tornados that makes their opponents dizzy.
There are two types: one has a purple shell, and the other is completely black and are like shadows. Both Dark Koopas appear underground. The reason is that Dark Koopas like dark surroundings.
Dark Koopas appeared in the first time in Paper Mario. In Paper Mario they lived in the Toad Town Tunnels. In Paper Mario The Thousand-year Door, they appeared in the Pit of 100 Trials.
They last appeared in Super Paper Mario. But this time it wasn't the normal Dark Koopa, this time it was a shadow of a Koopa. This Dark Koopa appeared in the Flopside Pit of 100 Trials.
