I noticed the defeated enemies count at the end of a level are not adding up.

I very carefully counted stomping on over 7 paratroopers. They went into their shells, stopped flying, and toppled off screen.

Is that not a "defeat?"

I have had the same question. Apparently, stomping on the paratroopers and koopas and seeing them going into their shell, is not a "defeat." The only way to kill them normally is if they are hit with another shell, or you have a Star active.

  • I think if you roll through them that also counts. Will confirm later. Mar 30, 2017 at 11:47
  • @Martin Ender You can't roll through enemies I don't believe.

  • you definitely can (I think it's even mentioned in the move list) and if you jump while rolling, the flip jump you do can also kill some enemies. Mar 31, 2017 at 15:37
  • And sliding should also work. Mar 31, 2017 at 15:38
