|Dropped Item||Pot lid (common, 6.25% )|
Soldier's sword (rare, 1.56% )
|Game||Dragon Quest IX|
|Description||Amphibious soldiers and adepts of defence who can be found patrolling around bodies of water.
They're forever scraping their soles on seashells while on beach patrol, and have been saving up to buy boots.
One of the monsters in Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies. It has a better defense than monsters in the area, Loch Storn, and may take a bit of effort to kill. Useful for early game grinding due to its EXP yield.
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.
