Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

Corporal Paraplonk along with Sergeant Guy and Private Goomp are first seen in Dimble Wood with a Banzai Bill cannon they want to shoot at Bowser's Castle to get rid of Fawful and they have no Banzai Bill occupied with them and then Bowser looks for one.

Later, the three appear in Bowser's Castle in Bowser's Vault where they watch Bowser take on the Fawful Express in his giant form. After he defeats the Fawful Express and Bowser Memory M and Bowser Memory L are defeated, Bowser obtains the second Star Cure locked in his safe. Next the three trick Bowser and state that something else is in there and then the shove him inside the safe and lock him in, proving that the three were hypnotized by Fawful.

After the credits, Corporal Paraplonk, along with Sergeant Guy and Private Goomp apologized to Bowser about locking him in the safe and ask to rejoin the Koopa Troop. Bowser says to them that he will forgive them if they help him repair the castle.
