This is Me (1)
Larry Koopa psyched himself up. Mario would be coming in a few moments and, this time, Larry had a plan that couldn't possibly fail. That portly plumber would never be getting by him. Not this time.
From the minute that his dad, King Bowser, told him to get the Koopalings ready for another invasion, he was thrilled. He'd been planning for months how to best Mario and now was his time to show Bowser what he could really do. Once again, he'd set himself on the front line of the attack. It was something he'd taken to doing ever since the get-go. As leader of the Koopaling Special Task Force, he felt that it was his duty to set himself and his siblings up for success and, most times, he felt that setting himself up as the first line of defense was only necessary. Sure, there were exceptions. He'd put Iggy or Lemmy on the front lines before, but, in the end, he mostly found himself best-suited for the job.
Being in charge of the Koopaling Special Task Force was a position Larry took gladly.
