Frackles are diminutive, robotic beings which are produced by Fracktail. Like him, they were presumably created by the Tribe of Ancients. They are encountered by Mario in Super Paper Mario, during his fight with the malfunctioning Fracktail. Mario uses Thoreau's ability to pick up the Frackles that are trying to defend their host and throw them at his antenna. The player can also choose to defeat Fracktail with the Frackles by jumping on them to boost Mario toward Fracktail's weak spot. After being hit multiple times, Fracktail is defeated and explodes, which also brings about the end of the Frackles.
Fracktail's prototype has stronger robots similar to Frackles known as Wrackles. Both types of robot bear some resemblance to duck-like enemies known as Cataquacks, though they do not act like them. Additionally, if Mario flips, they are shown to be 3D enemies.
