Hey... umm, Mario! I think I've changed my mind... I... would really like to travel along with you guys!

Koopington is a pacifist and rich Koopa Troopa who owns a casino and is tired of his boring life, so he joins Mario to help him in Paper Mario: The Ancient Book as the second partner. He used to be one of the best fighters at Glitzville, and reuses his attacks through the adventure. He uses his shell toss move to flip switches, grab items and attack enemies with a slight upgrade. He can hold his shell at a distance and then fire it back in the opposite direction.


Paper Mario: The Ancient Book

Even before the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Koopington was a fighter in the Glitzville. He was the second most famous fighter in the arena, only surpassed by Prince Mush. He was in the fighting business for a long time until he decided to change the style of his life, so he quit fighting.  He was awarded with a lot of money though.

Koopington still didn't know what to do with the money. He once visited Everbloom Village and bought a house in there and stayed in the village. He still had too much money in hands to waste, still not knowing what to do with it, he went back to Toad Town and visited the new casino that was opened a few days before. He liked the casino overall, and then got the idea to build his own casino. Koopington went back to Everbloom Village and opened his own casino, which was given the name of Turtley Casino. He gained a lot of money with it since the casino's opening.

However, Koopington still had the idea that something was missing in his life, he though his life is too calm and boring. After hearing the Ancient Book and Mystic Gems insident and that Mario is in a quest to solve it, he went and begged Mario to let him go with him in his adventure. Mario friendly accepted his request and so he joined Mario. He never told Mario the reason about why he went with him, although Mario didn't really mind not knowing why. His abilities are very similar to Kooper and Koops from past installments. Koopington reuses his attacks from the Glitz battles, such as the classic Shell Toss and other new moves.

Tattle Information

  • That's Koopington. He lives right here at Everbloom Village and owns the Turtley Casino. From what I can see, he seems to be really bored and has some depression...issues. I wonder why? He's RICH!!
