Dry Bones

He thinks he's scary. Anyone going to break the news to him?

Dry Bones is the second Koopa to ever exist. After Bowser, he is the oldest Koopa ever. He is so old that all of his organs and flesh have decomposed away, leaving just the skeleton behind, and he is now undead as a result of somehow still being animate. This makes him impossible to kill, so he is one of the most frustrating enemies in all of the Mario shames.

Dry Bones was created by Bowser about 1000 BC. Bowser brainwashed him, and made him the first Koopa Troopa. Dry Bones fought loyally (and brainwashed) for a thousand years. However, the fighting was so rough for him, he slowly started to wear away until he was nothing more than a skeleton. This is the Dry Bones we know today.

After realizing Dry Bones' age and never-ending animation and sentience made him immortal, Bowser started aging other Koopas. However, this just made them grow white beards and aventually turn into dust, as they did not go through the same process as Dry Bones. So, Bowser decided just to clone Dry Bones instead. There are now hundreds of Dry Bones running around the UnWorld.

Dry Bones is no longer feared like he used to be, because Mario, the Koopa-killing expert, discovered the weaknesses of Koopas. Now, Dry Bones is considered somewhat weak, and has been mostly replaced by Boos.

Although Mario is a Koopa expert, Dry Bones is impossible to kill, unless you throw his bones into lava, although he is strangely immune to any other fire. When you stomp him, he will fall apart but slowly comes back to life. Nobody doesn't know how but he knows, and he'll keep it a secret; otherwise everyone will live forever if they found out.
