Koopa Paratroopas are Koopa Troopas, but with little white wings. They can be seen in many colors, but the most common colors are green and red.
Koopa Paratroopas have two flying patterns. The first one being the jumping pattern, where the Koopa Paratroopa bounces across the floor in an arch. This could be difficult to dodge, but not too difficult. The second flying pattern is the actual flying pattern. Here, they'll fly in a vertical or horizontal line, back and forth.
Once a Koopa Paratroopa gets jumped on, it'll lose its wings and turn into a Koopa Troopa, falling of or staying on ledges depending on the color. It can be for sure disposed of by hitting it with a fireball or Hammer.
Koopa Paratroopas' appear for the second time in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. Here, they're quite common, first appearing in Chopwood Cavern, and finally appearing in the final fight with Bowser in his own castle.
Like the Koopa Troopa, Koopa Paratroopas are sprites taken straight out of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Unlike the last game, a new blue Koopa Paratroopa is common, alongside the red and green Paratroopa.
Koopa Paratroopas behave exactly like how they do in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. They'll either jump or fly, and can be disposed of easily.
