Polentam Koopa is one of the Koopalings and is part of a sub-group called the Mythical Koopalings. Polentam is the youngest and regarded as the most unpredictable of the seven Mythical Koopalings. He has complete dominance over the Element of Metal.


Being one of the smaller Koopalings, Polentam has a very child-sized body for a Koopaling. His teeth are extremely sharp due to him constantly using them as whet stones for his blades. His hair is brown and parted twice. His chest has a zig-zag pattern to it and his shell has a spiky base to it. His Shell is Yellow in colour.

He has long feet claws which allow him to burrow easily when searching for metal, in addition he has two pieces of steel which he can quickly change the shape of to form various weapons.


Through the various pieces of lore scattered across all the Mario Games, it is revealed that the Mythical Koopalings existed a long time ago, inidicating and confirming their lack of proper relation to Bowser. The Mythical Koopalings supposedly were from 300 years before the present day in the Mushroom Kingdom and originally helped Bowser's ancestors take over the Mushroom Kingdom and its neighbours until they were eventually sealed away in a Grand Star and Bowser's Ancestors were defeated.

Polentam was a very industrious Koopaling even in the past. He created the first prototypes of Bullet Bills and had been known to hoard resources to test new machines. He was known as the conquerer of the Minerals and lead a largely Robotic Army to acquire new land for himself. Polentam was also shown to have had a unique relationship with Monty Moles in which he inspired their current Family-Style Hierarchies by appointing several Monty Moles as Leaders of his army.

During the First Defeat of the Mythical Koopalings, Polentam unknowingly was tricked into creating the capture device for the Mythical Koopalings when he received a fake letter from Bowser's Ancestors that was crafted by the Toadstool Spies of the time. Polentam was the first Mythical Koopaling to be captured since soon after the completion of the device, the envoy transporting it to the Dark Lands was ambushed and the device was stolen, Polentam was captured a few days afterwards and this left the Monty Moles he once controlled left in a matter of chaos due to the fierce internal power struggle between the families of Monty Moles.


Polentam is very determined in nature and is often credited for being a primary force behind the production of a lot of Bowser's weaponry, primarily Bullet Bills, Tanks & Airships. He is a capable fighter and often looks forward to using his power against any foe.


Like most Koopalings, Polentam is able to spin rapidly in his shell to perform dash attacks as well as spit fire. His ability to spit fire is rather limited in its range due to his lack of usage for the technique.

Polentam's main ability is his power over Metal which allows him to use the Metal attached to his hands as various weapons. He can morph them into Projectiles, Walls or even a giant Ball to crush anyone who opposes him.

Game Appearances

New Super Mario Bros. Lambda

Polentam along with the other 7 Mythical Koopalings will appear as Castle Bosses for the 8th to 14th Worlds in the game. Polentam appears as the boss of the 9th World, Boo Graveyard.

He is notable for being the only Koopaling in the game that is able to not only Wall Jump but also Wall Grab. In his battle he constantly shifts around the room attempting to dart at the player/s, due to this the player/s must move quickly to dodge his attacks. After sustaining some damage, Polentam will create clones of himself which are distinguishable from him due to their lack of Hand Blades. Additionally Polentam will periodically shoot his Hand Blades at the player by morphing them into Metal Spikes or Balls.


  • Polentam's eyes are able to quickly adapt to various levels of light allowing him to quickly dig underground and re-appear above ground without hesitation.
  • Polentam is said to be the King of the Montey Moles.
