Top 25 Mario Enemies

8. Koopa Troopa

Next to the Goomba, Koopa Troopas are the most common enemy you'll face in most Super Mario Bros. video games. Turtle-like with green and red shells, they're susceptible to fire balls and you can also jump on their heads before kicking their shells off ledges and into unsuspecting enemies. Although most of them walk around, red Koopa Paratroopas fly around using their wings.

    Have we all forgotten Smithy, the 45 minute boss battle (30 if you're good)? Or the battle in SMRPG with Culex? Or any of the other exceedingly difficult bosses in SMRPG? How about Birdo?

    @omeganick46 -- If it wasn't Bowser someone would complain that he wasn't first. Who would you put at No. 1 instead?

    Wow Bowser? BIG FREAKING SURPRISE! Seriously why even bother typing this up : /

    I'm surprised that they didn't mention the super mario brothers movie.

    Yeah, an Goombas also appeared in Link's awakening as well. If you want to get really techinical, the lines of fire that circled around the screens in Bowser's castles in Mario 1, 3 and World also were in Zelda games. Heck, even Link made a cameo in Mario RPG.

    Yeah, the author was wrong about mario characters crossing over into Zelda games. There were several, including such characters as goombas, piranha plants, cheep cheeps and chain chomps. These were in Link's Awakening.

    I always wondered why Morton Koopa was a Jr. Is Bowser's name actually Morton Koopa, but he goes by Bowser, his middle name?

    i'm guessing whoever made this list never even played mario rpg.
