a more developed version of https://www.furaffinity.net/view/16110476/ now with a name,colors and all the other good stuff,mostly inspired by recent art of good lookin koopa gals,though her concept has been rattling around in my brain for a while.
It started with a desire for her to be a somewhat different type of koopa,since theres quite a few varieties that do different things,so i came up with the 'Blockoopa'
A blockoopa,from a gameplay standpoint would use its shell as a large shield infront of themselves to be impervious to projectiles from the front as well as be able to bump mario and co around into either stage hazards or other enemies as well as general area denial. blockoopas are however vulnerable to attacks from above,such as ground-pound as especially open to attacks from behind such as the return arc of the boomerang power up or a reflected fireball. defeating large blockoopas would drop a shield-shell power-up,which would protect the user from projectiles from behind (while the shell is worn) and give the ability to block from the front and bump nearby enemies.
If she were in a game Abby would be a mid-boss and function as an upgraded blockoopa,like boom-boom or pom pom
physically shes very heavy and large around twice the height of the average pesky plumber,her shell can fall off at times due to its easily removable nature. Shes outgoing and friendly,very 'genki' and somewhat oblivious,she enjoys lazing about,eating and lounging around in and near lava pools.
(name changed to avoid confusion with another plump koopa gal,must of had them in my subconsious at the time or something)
