Larry Koopa is the youngest of the Koopalings . His name was Cheatsy Koopa in the cartoons. He had a green shell until New Super Mario Bros. Wii in which it was upgraded to blue just like his hair which looks like Iggy's and Lemmy's. He appears in all the games to feature the Koopalings. Larry appears to like sports as shown in Yoshi Island Trouble! and is usually the first boss on the first world. In earlier games, he was depicted as the leader of the Koopalings but more recently, Ludwig has been known to be the leader.

Physical DescriptionEdit

Larry has a body shape similar to his brother Ludwig, although it is slightly thinner and shorter. He has bulging blue eyes, a green head with tall blue mohawk, a tan complexion and like his brothers, spiked metal cuffs around his wrists. Larry originally had four visible fangs and a spiked green shell, but as of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, he now has two visible teeth and a light blue shell with dark blue rims around the multiple spikes, with a blue star on his head.


Larry likes eavesdropping,he also likes to think.



The unused sprites of Larry that are found in the Super Princess Peach game coding. Disregard the removed head sprites. This is merely so the game can put together different heads to different bodies without wasting the memory of making a different sprite for each combination. This is common in sprites.

  • Larry Koopa was supposed to appear as a boss battle in Super Princess Peach, but he was removed along with all of the other Koopalings.
    • Larry Koopa is named after Larry Mullen Jr.
    • Although Larry has been shown to like sports, he appears to lack stamina, but this also might be because at the end of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, he walked from the first world to Bowser's castle, which explains his exhaustion, since it is a very long distance.
    • In Mario Kart 8's Eletrodrome, on the big screen where the Shy Guys and Koopa Troopas are dancing, Larry Koopa is seen in the background as the DJ.
    • In the English version Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, Larry is called the leader of the Koopalings in his trophy as a result of an out-of-context translation from the Japanese version. The NA version of the Wii U version corrects this by calling him the youngest instead. Despite this, his trophy information was left unchanged in the European version, likely from failing to understand the context of the translation.
