That's a Copta, a curious organism that flies through the air...and dimensions... Max HP is 10 and Attack is 3. It's hard to track, as it occasionally flips... Just stay after it, and hit it repeatedly when you can...

Coptas are red counterparts of Choppas, seen in the game Super Paper Mario. Despite being stronger and more durable, they are not very different from their weaker relative. They look like red dragonflies, and their name is a pun on the word "copter," which is short for "helicopter." They make several appearances in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials (rooms 74 and 87) and in Castle Bleck. Their ability to flip between dimensions at will make them harder to defeat, especially in enclosed areas like the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials. Although Copta's Catch Card states that the player would get dizzy by watching this alien's aerial maneuvers, the player should reverse the roles by stunning the Copta thanks to Fleep's ability.
