Prince Ludwig von Koopa is the strongest and most powerful member of the Koopalings (excluding Bowser Jr.) and is the oldest of the Koopalings. Ludwig is known to have more special abilities than that of his siblings. He can breathe fire, jump very high, spin in his shell, and create earthquakes. Ludwig was given more powers in Hotel Mario, he can fire lightnings blasts from his hands and teleport wherever he wishes to. In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, he can Flutter Jump better than the masters of that ability, the Yoshis themselves, being able to stay in the air much longer and float higher. Ludwig is also a better wielder of a magic scepter than any of his brothers or sister.
He is very intelligent and enjoys creating new inventions for the Koopa Troop. Ludwig is known as the cruelest of the Koopalings.
