You're standing on the wrong side of this face-off! And where's my backup?! Ludwig, get your shell OVER here!
~ Larry
Lord Bowser is expecting the Big Paint Star, and I have no intention of disappointing him. Have you even seen his disappointed face? It’s heartbreaking! Enough small talk. Let’s get this over with.
~ Larry
Ahaaaaaaaaa! I love the smell of impending doom! It was my henchmen who hijacked this train, and it’ll be my henchmen who…keep the train, uh…hijacked.

Larry Koopa is the youngest of the seven Koopalings. He appears as a boss in many Mario videogames. He also appears in two Super Mario Bros. cartoons where he is known as "Cheatsy Koopa". And also in a Japan exclusive Mario anime series where he goes by his real name.

Appearance

Larry has blue hair in a mohawk like style, and is one of the smaller Koopalings. He initially has a green shell, but this is later changed to a blue shell. The top half of his face is dark green. He has a blue star on the side of his head, similar to the one on Morton's face. His head is oval-shaped, and bears two fangs on the sides of his mouth. He has large oval light blue eyes, and his stomach and feet are padded.

History

Super Mario Bros. 3

His first appearance was in Super Mario Bros. 3, as the first boss. Larry is fought in an airship at Grass Land. He uses magic attacks. Mario defeated him, and he retreated, leaving behind the magic wand needed to change the king of Grass Land back to normal.

Super Mario World

Larry is the seventh Koopaling fought in Super Mario World, and is fought at the Valley of Bowser right before Bowser's castle. To defeat him, Mario must knock him into the lava, like Iggy's battle

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Larry and the other Koopalings were apparently revived somehow, as they returned in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, as bosses in Bowser's castle. Larry was the last Koopaling to be fought. They were all apparently killed after being defeated.

Super Princess Peach

Although not actually seen in the game it was revealed that Larry along with his other siblings (excluding Bowser Jr.) were to make an appearence in this game but were taken out for no apparent reason. Every one of the Koopalings had their own complete sprite sheet.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

The Koopalings returned again in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Larry is fought twice in the first level (a plains level). Kamek made the floor move during the second battle, but Mario defeated him and he fell off the screen. After the credits, it is revealed that he survived, but Bowser, Bowser Jr., and the Koopalings were all crushed when Bowser's castle fell on top of them.

Mario Kart 8

Larry and all of the other Koopalings also made their first appearance as playable characters in Mario Kart 8. Larry and Wendy were both in the light class.

Super Smash Bros. Series

Trivia

  • His name used to be thought to be derived from Larry Mullen Jr., the drummer for the Irish rock band U2. But in an interview with Dayvv Brooks, a former Nintendo of America employee, he was named Larry because he (quite literally) "looked like a Larry".
