Fire Bros. are a species of Koopa Troopa. Because they are closely related to Hammer Bros., they naturally throw something. So they spit fire balls, and thus got their name. They wear a red helmet to represent their ability, and a red shell for the same reason. Like the Boomerang Bros. and Hammer Bros., they have big, bulging eyes, and just looking at one tells it's a different species of Koopa Troopa. In Super Paper Mario, some can flip between dimensions. They first appear in Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door in the Glitz Pit where only once is fought in the whole game (as well as Boomerang Bros.). They attack more often when there HP is very low or in Peril. In Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door they do not appear in the pit of 100 trials. They can easily burn you if you don't even bother to defend.

History Edit

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door Edit

Flare, a Fire Bro, is a fighter in the Glitz Pit alongside Bamma and Hamma Jamma. He is the only Fire Bro to appear in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Like Fire Bros. in earlier appearances, he spits fireballs as a main attack. These fireballs not only damage opponents, but may also cause them to catch fire as well.

Super Paper Mario Edit

Fire Bros. make an appearance in the third installment of the Paper Mario series, Super Paper Mario. They are encountered on the stairs in Castle Bleck and also in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials, and act just as they did in Super Mario Bros. 3. Some Fire Bros. also have the ability to flip between dimensions.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star Edit

Fire Bros. make an appearance in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. They are encountered in Rugged Road, Rumble Volcano and Bowser Jr.'s Flotilla. They have a bigger rarity than in New Super Mario Bros. U, and Ice Bros. appear to be semi-common enemies. Fire Bros. have a red shell and helmet, just like they do in other Paper Mario games, but the only change is they do not have arm bands. the color outline of the shell is white instead of yellow. Their only attack is to throw a fireball at Mario. They are immune to all fire-based stickers (i.e. Fire Flowers and Burnhammer stickers); However, their main weakness is ice. When an Ice Flower or a Chillhammer sticker is used against them, they will take double damage. When a Thing sticker is used in the first area of Rugged Road, the Fire Bros. turn into Ice Bros. Fire Bros. are mostly assisted by Shiny Paratroopas. Touching a Fire Bros. fireball outside battle will cause Mario to lose 3 HP.

Paper Mario: Color Splash Edit

Fire Bros. return in Paper Mario: Color Splash keeping their appearance and behavior from the previous game. They can be found in Fortune Island, Redpepper Volcano, Redpepper Crater and Black Bowser's Castle. A group of Fire Bros. in Redpepper Volcano are commanded by a blue Snifit. After they are defeated, another Snifit can be found training a Fire Bro to throw fireballs at the beginning of the level.
