Koopa + Paratroopa ML:SS Battle Compilation by RidgeTroopa Koopa + Paratroopa ML:SS Battle Compilation by RidgeTroopa

Remember my Superstar Saga Koopa sprites? Even if you don't, you've definitely seen them. There are edits upon edits floating around (dare I say a great many improperly credited oops).
Now... forget everything you know about those, and look at THESE. Inspired from the MLSS Hammer Bro and Koopa Troop design, they're what I believe Koopas would've looked like as enemies. So before you ask... Remember that Hammer Bros in MLSS had no shoes, and Koopa Troops had no lines on their shells.
And yes, I'll upload the overworld animations soon...

See the sheet here.

Wings and spinning shell were taken from Troopea, obviously. Every other pixel was made by me.

I still think the old ones work fine for a more "modern Mario game" type of Koopa. But these definitely feel more at home with Superstar Saga.

Speaking of which, thoughts on the Superstar Saga remake?

While I agree the others are more accurate to modern Koopas, they don't match the sprite style properly.

I'm very excited for it! The changes they're making to designs are expected and as usual everything remade in Dream Team style is amazing.

The wings on the Paratroopa in its out of shell pose don't look right. They stay the same angle as when the shell is horizontal even when the shell is at a much more vertical angle. It even looks like they're not completely attached to the shell in that pose.

The animation on the Paratroopa's stomach and feet look a little off to me too, but I'm not really sure how it could be fixed.

What you're saying makes sense; the problem being that in order to fly, the wings on a Paratroopa are pretty much always flapping up and down. Feel free to check out some official sprites and artwork of Paratroopa, you'll find that they look the same as I've done here.
As for the rest of him, the animation is based directly on Paratroopea.

While I think no lines on the shell looks good, Troopeas and Paratroopeas had lines on their shells, as most koopas normally do. Noramlly I'd think Koopas would just be altered versions of those (as Goombas to Beanies) , but these looks very nice either way!

You're right that altering Troopeas would be easiest... Though not only has that been done already, but also Bowser's Koopa Troops don't have the lines and are bipedal.

I think the reason why they don't have the lines on there shells is because the Overworld Sprites are small and the ridge would cover the shell if they used a black outline even if they choose a darker color it's not very well visual either i would still have them the lines like the Troopeas and Paratroopeas.
But seriously these Koopas look amazing!

You're probably right. Bowser was also missing the ridges, so maybe they were made to match him.

Yeah, it's more boring just to make a quick edit.
