Flipruses are a type of enemy found in New Super Mario Bros. U. They are pink walrus-like creatures with yellow goggles and blue-and-white striped tails. They create snowballs and launch them at the players. They appear in only one level: the secret level Fliprus Lake. They behave very similarly to Snow Spikes, but they launch their snowballs up much higher. Plus, their snowballs can be jumped on.

In New Super Luigi U, they appear as more common enemies. They appear in Fliprus Floes and Hammerswing Hangout.
