The Koopa Troop, also known as the Koopa Clan, Bowser's Army, the Bowser Baddies and Bowser's Minions, is the military of the Koopa Kingdom, which is led by King Bowser Koopa. It is also called a variety of other names, including “Bowser’s Minions,” and the “Koopa Clan.” While usually the Koopa Troop aids Bowser in his attempts at conquest, on numerous occasions a significant portion of the Koopa Troop has been mind-controlled and made to serve someone else, such as Count Bleck or Fawful, and act against the Koopa King.


Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

To help avoid the terrible future predicted by Kamek,[1] he's sent his forces to actively search Yoshi's Island, the last known location of Baby Mario.[2] These forces consisted of:

Super Mario Bros.


In combat, all of the minions of a set group have one captain, sometimes marked by a flag on their head. When the leader is defeated, all of the minions in that group stop fighting and retreat, regardless if there are still any minions in their squad active.[3] This is an effective strategy the Koopa Troop enacts on their opposing forces, as they follow the same protocol.[4]
