Dark Paratroopas are Dark Koopas with wings, mainly stronger versions of regular Paratroopas. Their stats are the same as Dark Koopas and their wings will fall off if jumped upon or if the player uses a POW Block or another quake attack, thus becoming regular Dark Koopas.

They are introduced in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, like Dark Koopas, they as well, are found only in dark places, the Pit of 100 Trials respectively. They are only found on floors 41-49. They have a comeback in Paper Mario: Sticker Star.
