Card Description
This baddest baddie in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials. He may fight like Fracktail, but he's 100 times stronger.
Tattle
That's Wracktail, the very menacing lord of the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials. Max HP is ??. Attack is 10. It can fly and swoop down with its big open mouth... I think this is a prototype of an improved Fracktail from the Yold Desert... The Ancients must have built it. But like Fracktail, its antenna is its weak spot...

Wracktail, Super Paper Mario

Wracktail is a white robotic dragon god that appears in the Wii video game Super Paper Mario. He stated that he was a wrathful god who was locked away by the Tribe of Ancients, and Tippi postulates that he was the prototype for Fracktail, who looks identical to Wracktail except for his colouration. Wracktail is found at the bottom of the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials and upon his defeat, Dashell, a Pixl, is obtained, and a Pipe appears, leading Mario and company back to the entrance of the Pit. Just as Fracktail is the Super Paper Mario equivalent of Hooktail from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Wracktail is the counterpart to Bonetail. Wracktail is the largest enemy in the Mario series, also sharing that title with Fracktail.

To defeat Wracktail, the same tactics must be utilized as those used to defeat Fracktail. The player must wait for the boss to dive low along the ground, then jump on his back and use Thoreau to grab the Wrackles and throw them and Wracktail's antenna, which must be hit 30 times to defeat the dragon. The player can also use Luigi's Super Jump to continuously jump onto the antenna, and Peach's parasol move can be used to easily jump back onto Wracktail's head when he does a loop, potentially making the battle easier than the earlier Fracktail battle. However, contrary to his Catch Card's claims, Wracktail is only ten times stronger than Fracktail, not 100 times.
