Paper Mario Wiki

AHAHAHA! You should've seen the look on your face! ...No, seriously. Can we get a mirror over here? -Iggy Koopa

Iggy Koopa is one of the many Koopalings of Bowser. He is the second boss in Paper Mario: Color Splash, and is found at the Golden Coliseum.


Mario encounters him after he defeats all the enemies in the first round of the Battle Royale. He, along with two other minions, circle around Mario in their Chain Chomp chariots. They eventually stop in front of Mario. Iggy then introduces himself and fights Mario. After Mario defeats him, he expresses embarrassment on how he was defeated on his home turf. He then flies away into the distance. He can later be seen at the end of the game where he is shown along with the other Koopalings flying on a broken airship that is later blown up by fireworks.

Battle Tactics

Like Morton, despite looking tough, his battle isn't that hard if you know what you're doing. In the first phase of the fight, Iggy will shoot yellow magic at you or do a shell spin. Once you drain his HP to a certain point, he'll ride out of battle on his chariot, leaving his two other minions to attack for a turn. When Iggy returns and the three targets are lined up, using the Bone Thing will summon a Chain Chomp that will destroy the chariots and the other two minions. If you don't do this in time, Iggy will summon a Thwomp and knock you out instantly. Unlike Morton, Iggy will still do as much damage as he did in his first phase.


Iggy is the most sardonic of the Koopalings, saying things like "Let's see what you're made of, pretty boy!" He is loyal to Bowser like the other Koopalings.


  • When Iggy summons the Thwomp, its attack deals 999 damage, the most recorded damage in any Paper Mario game.
  • If you use a Bone Replica, Iggy will knock the Bone away with his wand, preventing it from having any effect.
