One of the monsters in Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies. It has better defense than monsters in area, Loch Storn and may take a bit of effort to kill.

Etymology[edit]

It bears a resemblance in both name and appearance to Wooper from Pokémon. This is down to the fact that they are both based on the real world axolotl, a type of salamander.

Also, the adding of "trooper" to the end draws a parallel to the turtle character from Super Mario, the Koopa Troopa - which in itself was likely a nod to the Abba song "Super Trouper", as well as being a generally obvious rhyme to use.
