The Mechakoopa marches until the colliding with an enemy, knocking them back before exploding. It does 2% when jumping and 7% explosive damage when it explodes for a total of 9%. It deals weak diagonal knockback. If the Mechakoopa walks to a ledge without hitting anyone, it will turn around, and if it isn't activated after about five seconds, it will explode on its own. If a player picks up the Mechakoopa it will reset the timer. The Mechakoopa counts as an item that can be picked up and thrown back at the user, similar to Diddy Kong's Banana Peel. Bowser Jr. can only have one Mechakoopa out at a time; the move will fail if he uses it again before the Mechakoopa is gone.
Special Move customization was added in Super Smash Bros. 4. These are the variations:
Mechakoopas debuted in Super Mario World, appearing in Bowser's Castle and being thrown by Bowser out of his Koopa Clown Car during the final battle. Mario can disable them by stomping them, though they will return to normal after some time. When they are deactivated, Mario can pick them up and throw them; this is the only means of defeating Bowser in that game. They appeared mostly in spin-off games over the years before redesigned versions showed up as normal enemies in Super Mario Galaxy before returning to their familiar design in New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
